truth is it does work

“Darkiplier VS Antisepticeye” is Mark’s Effort to Take Back Control From Dark: A Theory

(Disclaimer: I know nothing about any of Jack’s egos, so this is entirely about Mark’s. Disclaimer 2, Electric Boogaloo: I had my Frosted Mini Wheats like two hours late today, and that threw off my groove, so I’m sorry if I’m less eloquent than usual. Disclaimer III- This Time, It’s Personal: The only reason this isn’t under a read more is because someone told me to do that last time, but they weren’t very nice about it, so now I’m being petty. I’m sorry for being the worst. I still love you guys, though.)

In my last theory, we discussed the possibility that Dark is trying to take back control through more subtle means this time, and that he has a plan that we didn’t get to see during Markiplier TV. He’s been slowly giving hints of his existence in videos, teasing just enough to get people talking. He hasn’t revealed himself outright in any videos since Markiplier TV; he hasn’t denied being in them, either. 

Remember this interaction between @markiplier and @hufflepufftrax?

Mark quickly dispels rumors about Darkiplier when they’re not true. Why, then, would he not clear the air during the chaos of World’s Quietest Let’s Play 4, or any other video that has stirred up the community a great deal more than this photo ever did? The logical train of thought, then, is that these really were Dark appearances and we are supposed to know it. So, if Dark has been going about this so carefully all along, why would he reveal himself by sharing the spotlight in a comedy sketch? The short answer is that he wouldn’t. The reality is… say it with me now… it’s just Mark impersonating Dark!

Yeah, I know, no shock there. You’ve been hearing that since the video dropped. I talked about it when answering an ask, which I’m screenshotting and dropping below for your convenience, because I’m just a nice gal like that.

So now we have to ask, why would Mark do this? If Dark really is starting to take back control, this would be a dangerous time to pull a stunt like this, wouldn’t it? Well, it makes sense when you consider the fact that Mark has all but run out of options. 

Every time Dark is hinted at, the community goes wild. It doesn’t matter how subtle the hint may be- if the lights in the background of a video are red and blue, someone will point it out. Someone will draw him. Someone will get excited. And then, over time, everyone will get excited. 

Even if Mark tried to warn us, it only fueled the fire. Reaching out for help, trying to tell us that Dark is here– it is exactly what Dark wants. So Mark now has to try a different tactic. The only way that Dark can lose at this point is if he loses his allure to the viewers, and the only way to do that is to use his own method against him: Dark is pretending to be Mark, and now Mark is pretending to be Dark in order to discredit him. More specifically, he’s trying to get Dark out of the way, impersonate him, and make a fool out of him. That sounds… familiar, doesn’t it? Have we heard that somewhere before?

What if I change up the tense a little and word it a bit more like this?

“Pushed aside. Replaced. Mocked.”

That rings a few more bells, doesn’t it?

When we put all of these things together, a picture starts to form: Mark kept Dark at bay for years by making him a joke, but then he made the mistake of letting down his guard. Letting him back in. Now, Mark is fighting back using the only method that he has ever known to work. Why wouldn’t it this time? Making silly edits, taking over Mark’s twitter with edgy, emo poetry… it was enough to dissuade the community last time. So what could make it fail now? How could humor no longer be sufficient to drive Dark away?

The key difference this time is that Dark is not simply a wisp of a presence like he was years ago. He can’t be laughed off anymore. He is here. He is real. He is powerful. He does not like to be mocked, and this action from Mark will most definitely have consequences.

And the blame for that, really, falls on all of us. As Mark said all those years ago, we made Dark real.  Back then, he had to resort to humor to keep Dark at bay, because none of us would listen to him when he warned us. Now, history’s repeating itself,  but the outcome isn’t so sure this time. We learned nothing in the process. Now Dark has become too strong, because we, the viewers, keep letting him back in. Mark tries to tell us that Dark is here and we are thrilled about it.

So, really, the question isn’t, “Why would Mark do this?”

The question is, 

Why didn’t we listen?

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader (ft. Jin, but not romantically)

Word count: 4.3k

Genre: Smut (M), angst, mafia!au, prostitution!au

A/N:This is a dark and filthy story! Graphic descriptions of sex (oral, penetration, etc), heavy dom/sub undertones, drug use, vulgar language use… This is a mature read! You have been warned!

part 1 | part 2 | part 3 | part 4 | part 5 | part 6 | part 7 | part 8 | part 9



“You lied to me!” the 15yr old Jungkook screeched in agony. He couldn’t stop the salty tears from streaming down his puffy face, as he looked at his older brother with pure hatred.

Jin, lifelessly looked at his youngest sibling and sighed in an annoyed tone, “What was I supposed to tell you?”

“The truth!” the doe eyed boy spat.

“It doesn’t work like that Jungkook, especially in this family.”

“Family?!” Jungkook laughed, sounding as if he had gone insane. “You think I’d call this a family?!”

At that, Jin closed his eyes in frustration – he knew that it was never easy for any of them to find out the truth, but Jungkook was by far taking it the worse. He recalled the others had shown great anger momentarily, but then they would get over it. Hell, even him himself hadn’t shown any emotions when his father told him the truth about his own mother. But maybe that was because Jungkook was different from the rest of them. He still… felt emotion, he still cared for others, and hadn’t become a cold-hearted machine that followed orders like the rest of them did.

Jungkook x Reader

Genre: Werewolf! Jungkook, smut

Word count: 4,126 words

Chapter 1 | 2


Bang. Bang. Bang.

“Jungkook!”

No answer.

BANG. BANG. BANG.

“Jungkook!”

Still no answer. You didn’t care that an old lady walking behind you gave you a very dirty look before shuffling down the corridor to her own apartment. It was only the manners instilled by your parents that stopped you from shooting daggers right back at her.

BANG! BANG! BANG!

“JEON JUNGKOOK! Open the fucking door right now or I -”

Your shouts as well as your fist froze in mid-air when the door whipped open to reveal the man whose name you’d been yelling at the top of your lungs.

“Why the hell are you banging my door down?” Jungkook’s frown and his tone told you that he was irritated, which fueled your anger even more. He had no right to be annoyed at you after the shit he had put you through today.

“Why weren’t you at work?” You managed to lower your volume now that there wasn’t a door separating the two of you, but you made sure that he knew how angry you were.

“I took a day off, but I’m sure you could have gotten that information from the HR.”

His flippant answer didn’t impress you one bit. “You know that isn’t what I’m talking about.”

“Then what are you talking about?” The question came out sounding incredulous, but you didn’t miss the uncomfortable shuffling of the guilty man. He knew what you were talking about. Before you could point it out, however, a high-pitched woman’s voice called from inside his apartment.

“Who’s at the door, babe? Come back to bed, I can’t wait anymore!”

Me on my death bed...

Me: Tell my family that I love them

Grandkid: Yes, grandma.

Me: And tell telanu that Truth and Measure is the best novel I’ve ever read.

Grandkid: I think you mean fanfiction, grandma.

Me: Did I fucking stutter?

anonymous asked:

Could you point out the differences between a kangal, malakli and anatolian shepherd?

ah yes, the subtleties of the fawn-with-mask-turkish-livestock-dog-things!  ill use turkish line dogs so you can see really what the breed differences are traditionally, instead of western/euro examples of the breed which are different than middle eastern “true” shepherds

so, its like a dog thermometer but with aggression and size

turkish-line anatolian shepherd! not huge, on the lankier side of the spectrum while still being strong and sturdy. pretty much exclusively used as livestock dogs and dont do anything in fighting, although they can also be companions.


getting bigger now! kangals are a little more aggressive, a little wilder, per say. very territorial, suspicious, blah blah blah. used in fighting, but still also used as livestock dogs!


now we’ve got the big guns! malakli are the largest of the turkish shepherds, very aggressive animals and were actually bred from kangals (most say they were mixed with big mastiffs and other fighting dogs, though the exact origin to my understanding is unknown). they are pretty exclusively used for dog fights, dont do any livestock work, and tend to be the most mastiffy in appearance and often have the wrinkly faces.

now ill be totally honest, malakli and kangals often look very similar, and less “typey” examples of each breed are hard to tell apart, particularly since malakli have kangal roots anyway. likewise, a lot of kangals, especially the thinner ones, look a lot like anatolians because those breeds are also related. so really what im trying to say is that all the turkish breeds are kind of a hot mess of within themselves and they all sort of look similar and have very mixed purposes and are, quite honestly, probably still interbred with one another. the line where one ends is vague and malleable; landraces are not distinct “breeds” the way modern kennel club dogs are, and while the differences do definitely exist they are subtle and alien comparatively to how clubs view dogs. 

FILLED REQUEST: down with love, a fuckboi! seongwu au

(image credit)

pairing: ong seongwu x reader
genre: fluff, angst
wordcount: 3023
summary: Ong Seongwu is the campus’s resident type-A fuckboy. when you, an unknown writer, attempt to steal his spotlight, he tries to get revenge by making you fall in love with him.
warnings: provocative situations, but nothing too steamy
(inspired by the movie of the same name! same verse as the sungwoon prince au, but with a different reader + earlier time period. cross-posted on ao3.)

one | two

Each term, Ong Seongwu beats three of his own personal records: the number of features editors who’ve quit at the campus publication he heads; the amount of attention its social media has garnered under his editorship; and the size of his contacts list, the names of interviewees mingling with those of all the people he’s slept with.

Everybody on campus knows Ong Seongwu, and he wants to keep it that way. A consummate professional, he entered university knowing exactly what he wanted and how he was going to get there. After all, one doesn’t become an excellent reporter and social media influencer overnight; Seongwu built his brand through hard work, god-given good looks, and a knack for making people laugh. He flirts with all of them and fucks them without batting an eyelash, and none of them can say they didn’t know what they signed up for.

Yes, it’s easy to fall for Seongwu, with a story like his: a talented boy on scholarship with big dreams, eager to find someone to share his life with. The best lies are half-truths, after all. Seongwu does work hard, but he doesn’t think there’s a place in his life for love. Still, that doesn’t mean he can’t have fun, and he’s broken the many hearts of people who’ve wanted more.

Twists on an Old Tale

Anonymous asked: “I’m working on something where I am twisting Arthurian legend and I was wondering, how accurate do I have to make it to myth? I was thinking I could have characters in modern times reflect how ‘history isn’t always told correctly’ as a way to excuse my changes (such as the years Arthur was killed or when Merlin fought in a battle that drove him mad). Will this upset readers, or is this plausible enough of an excuse to allow them to maintain suspension of disbelief? How much is too much change?”

The answer I’d give you as a reader is change as little as possible. As a writer, though I’d say your story comes first. Make it good. The best thing is maybe to reconcile the two opinions. I suggest trying to keep everything as accurate to the original tale as possible and in the places where you cannot, either figure out a way to reference the original truth while still making it work for your plot.

Jungkook Natal Analysis






Major Planetary Analysis

Again, we are unsure of Jungkook’s exact birth time so therefore; calculating rising and midheaven are not possible. If I did have to guess, I would assume Jungkook is a leo rising based on physical appearance. So, Jungkook is a Virgo Sun + Leo Moon. Virgo suns are typically noted for being well put together, having a strong need for organization + cleanliness because they are ruled by Mercury, a planet of communication and planning. Unlike geminis, virgos are more internalized and so, they are not the ones most open to engage in conversation but they do have great analytical skills, fierce judgement capability that they are able to maneuver through personal problems or drama. However, virgos struggle with pressure. See, capricorn suns are very used to this pressure, taurus tends to avoid it, but virgos struggle working with it. They have a little voice in their head constantly telling them to do better and so, this is where that perfectionist archetype comes in. A lot of virgo suns are not shy from entertainment jobs bc this voice trains them to be the best at their craft (i.e. Beyonce and Michael Jackson, to name a few). Now, his leo moon suggests emotion wise, he can exaggerate because leos are an external sign so they are not ones to resort to isolation or keep these feelings hidden. In fact, these emotions downpour. Leo moons typically act out when they are not receiving the comfort and love that they think they deserve, particularly if they are not getting attention or reciprocated. The moon also can deal with creativity so leo moons are very creative, usually has a lot of creative passion, and being a fire sign they are able to drive ideas into action. He has a Virgo Mercury which, like I stated before, Virgo is ruled by mercury so he has a good judgement set, he also needs things organized when he plans, he may be on time to where he needs to be. HOWEVER, his mercury is retrograde. Retrogrades in astrology pertains to the energies of the planet being turned inward, causing dysfunctions and awkwardness in manifesting. He may have an acute thinking process, quirky humor, planning could be disruptive. He has a Libra Venus so he can be very romantic, flirtatious and exude well crafted charm. Venus rules Libra so there is an attractability as well as the need to be peaceful. This is also a placement of idealizing romance, so he may have a clear idea of what kind of romance he has to the point where he gets sucked into it. Venus is exalted in Pisces so there is a fantasy element attached to Venus. He may struggle knowing when to leave a relationship because he may try to make the relationship fit his fantasy at all costs. In terms of interests, they are into high value, luxury, and so on. His Scorpio Mars, makes him quite the dominant, he loves to embrace all taboos. Scorpio mars men know how to work a person’s body because again, Scorpio rules the genitals so they are able to make you orgasm quite marvelously. Scorpio Mars may want power through sex, they may also be into sadism because the sexual energy here is quite dark and compact. Scorpio mars are not outwardly aggressive like an Aries Mars, but they will retaliate once they have been pushed to the edge or  have ran out of options; therefore, they have no choice but to aggress. His mars is also in the 11th degree so he is very sexually charged, the powers here are quite enticing it and the beautiful thing is that he appears to be a good boy and reserved but in the bedroom, its a completely different story. Now, I noticed Jk has a lot of retrogrades, again this could cause dysfunctions to how these energies are expressed. His jupiter retrograde allows this so-called growth to take place internally. He may procrastinate frequently, plan and re-plan. They usually have to seek their own higher truth. He is a high spirited individual so he does not work well directly following the footsteps of other people. Saturn Retrogrades typically are incarnations; therefore, it is though they have a second chance to redo life. He signifies an old soul who has advanced far in the life path. Saturn is a harsh planet so it typically flows nicely in the retrograde position.  

Aspects

Sun Conjunction Mercury signifies a person of self knowledge with very strong opinions. He knows the importance of knowledge but can be very elitist, especially with sun conjunction mercury, these people often struggle seeing the viewpoint of another person.

Moon Square Pluto signifies buried feelings and an intense emotional life. These people live for crises because that’s how they function–through intensity. They are also unconsciously elected to carry and heal wounds so there is a bruised undercurrent to the individual. He may, in fact, attract tragedy wherever he goes. He may tend to crash through and invade other people’s feelings or, in some cases, be very frightened of doing so. His motives are often concerned with establishing an intense emotional connection but he may do it with slight suspicion.

Mercury Square Pluto seeks power through language. It is a placement of where words can kill. These people are highly investigative; they creep deep into people’s business to find some sense of information that further their power. Because this is a harsh aspect, he may always be filled with suspicion, suspecting the worse of others.

Sun Square Pluto shows an importance of the self. He illuminates power and may even be obsessed with self image + identity. There could be an introverted and defensive side as well. He may fear when his identity is under threat.

Venus Square Saturn shows a serious glance at romance.  They often deny affection and if they are immersed into romance their instinct is to control it. When receiving compliments, they have a hard time accepting them, usually adding a snide remark. This could be a placement that could indicate a lack of nurturing in childhood. He may believe, though not always consciously, that it is others that dont care about him and therefore, he wont care about them. It may take him a while to understand and learn about giving and receiving. He may even attempt to make himself indispensable to his loved ones–willing to give his time and money to them. When you know he cares it is through the time and warmth he gives to someone.

Great Ways To Earn Some Extra Money!

As I typed out the title I realized how much this sounds like some sort of scam, but it’s not. These are some websites and apps I use to make some money.

1. Fronto

This is an app that pops up when you go to unlock your phone. You can either swipe to the left to download an app or read an article which will get you points that you can use to redeem giftcards or paypal.Swiping to the right will unlock your phone. This app works really well and it’s really easy to get points!

(My referral link for Fronto: i.fronto.co/i/3e6w )

2. Swagbucks

You’ve probably heard of Swagbucks before and if you haven’t already signed up, you definitely should now! This is the website that I have been most successful with. You can watch videos, take surveys, play games and answer daily polls to earn “swagbucks” that you can redeem for giftcards of paypal cash!

(My Swagbucks referral link: swagbucks.com/refer/tonykingpark)

3. Gift Hulk

Gift Hulk is pretty easy to earn with also. I usually take surveys, play guess the card, and do easy offers. But you can also watch videos and search. I also get a lot of points when I refer people. The more people you refer that reach silver level, the more points you get!

(My invite code of Gift Hulk: TA414709)

4. Bing Rewards

There’s not much to say about Bing Rewards because all you have to do to get points is search on bing. I know, I know “But I like Google, Bing sucks!” The truth is that Bing works just as well as Google does and I have no problem while searching on it. So why not switch search engines and earn some money too?

Truth about Spells

What is a Spell? How does it work? And why do we do them?

When you boil down a Spell to its roots, what a spell is and what it does is focus your will/intent. We add correspondences in attempt to boost our will with the energy from those items or actions, but when all is said and done, we’re really just using the power of our thoughts to manifest our desires. Simply put, it’s a dressed up version of “Positive Thinking.”

With that being said, we know that “Positive Thinking” can’t solve all our problems, and to be honest, neither can Spells/Magic. Sometimes it a matter of mind over matter. You can’t will you hair to change colors, but you can buy some hair dye and wish yourself luck that it’ll turn out the way you want. Other times it’s that there are too many forces/energies working against you. This makes your spell-work (or intent) take longer to manifest, and requires more groundwork.

This is why you’ll find in a lot of books the phrase “magic can’t exist in a vacuum.” You have to act on your intentions as much as you have to will your intentions. You can do a spell to attract money or a new job, but it sure would come sooner (or be easier for you) if you did the leg work too and applied for jobs you were suited for (or increased your training so you would qualify for the job.) Something can’t come from nothing.

That is not to say that magic and spells aren’t useful, because they are. The mind is a powerful thing. Your thoughts, your words, your actions carry weight. Spells are the purposeful use of those thoughts, words, and or actions to manifest a goal. There is power there, and it’s up to you to decide when and how you will work it.

Don’t under estimate the power of your words and your thoughts. Simple phrases can change lives. For example, think of the phrase “I love you.” That phrase can bring joy, pain, heartache, or suffering depending on whom says it to you, can it not? Word spells and focused intent is no different. 

Only you know your personal energy limit, and it’s up to you to decide how much you want to do spell work and for what reasons, but it’s important to be thoughtful of the costs of that spell-work.  (My energy is low, so I do spells that require little effort and have little energy forcing against it because I know the success rate will be higher and my energy won’t be wasted.) It’s your life and your path, you can do spells for whatever reason you feel like, and no one can tell you otherwise, but it doesn’t hurt to ask yourself these questions when considering doing a spell: Do I really need to do a spell to achieve this goal? Would my energy be better put to use in a different way? What are other ways I can achieve my goals if not through magic? What would be the path of least resistance to focus my intent?

Lastly, I just want to remind all my Witches that how many spells you do does not gain or lose any credit you have to be able to call yourself a ‘witch.’ You don’t have to cast x amount of spells to prove you are a witch. You don’t have to prove you are a witch to anyone! You don’t even have to call yourself a witch if you don’t want to! The pressure you feel to prove how witchy you are for the sake of being witchy, is all in your head. You are valid, your spell work is valid. As long as you realize that you have a magic energy inside  you, and that everything around you has its own energy, and you are conscious of your use of that energy to bend your will and intent, you are magic, you’re a witch. 

That’s just my two cents. -Keta

“You lied to me!” the 15yr old Jungkook screeched in agony. He couldn’t stop the salty tears from streaming down his puffy face, as he looked at his older brother with pure hatred.

Jin, lifelessly looked at his youngest sibling and sighed in an annoyed tone, “What was I supposed to tell you?”

“The truth!” the doe eyed boy spat.

“It doesn’t work like that Jungkook, especially in this family.”

“Family?!” Jungkook laughed, sounding as if he had gone insane. “You think I’d call this a family?!”

At that, Jin closed his eyes in frustration – he knew that it was never easy for any of them to find out the truth, but Jungkook was by far taking it the worse. He recalled the others had shown great anger momentarily, but then they would get over it. Hell, even him himself hadn’t shown any emotions when his father told him the truth about his own mother. But maybe that was because Jungkook was different from the rest of them. He still… felt emotion, he still cared for others, and hadn’t become a cold-hearted machine that followed orders like the rest of them did.

And that’s when Jin discovered he had to change that.

“Why are you getting so upset Kookie?” the elder said with a chilling voice. “I understand that your mother dying is quite saddening, but…” he trailed off, only to find the boy looking directly at him with fiery in his eyes.

He knew that he should have stopped – but he couldn’t. He needed to break him. So, he didn’t let the twisted smile on his face disappear, as he spoke the dreaded act Jungkook had committed;

“…you’re the one who stabbed her to death.”

Baby Tim - Part 2

Part two of baby Tim!

This part is written in the reader point of view

—————————————————————————————————-

“Alright Mr. Todd, this is everything. These are the background checks for everyone in the building, my personal qualifications, and a layout of everything” You say, walking into the office where Jason and Tim are waiting. You had asked them to come back before the daycare opened in order to get and give information about the care center.

You sit behind a desk a Jason goes over all of the information about Owl Care. Tim wiggles to the floor and toddles over to you, trying to climb into your lap.

“You know, I haven’t seen him be so taken with someone so soon. Not even his older brothers.”

You chuckle, allowing the child to curl into you, just watching his father read, “Well he likes me now, just wait until you try to leave and them we will see how he does” you clear your throat awkwardly, “So Mr. Todd …”

“Just Jason please, or Jay, I’m fine with either”

“Alight, Jason, do you mind me asking why you require our services?”

“I work nights, and I can’t take Timmy to work with me, so I just need someone to be with him while he sleeps, just in case he needs someone” the corner of Jason’s eye twitches, a barely there tell. You believe that he works nights, but you also don’t think that he is telling the whole truth about what he will be doing.

“Of course, does his mother also work nights then?”

“His mother? Oh, no, she um, she isn’t with us anymore”

“I’m very sorry. I didn’t realize …”

“It’s alright, I didn’t know his mother anyway, Timmy is adopted”

Your eyes widened slightly, “Oh! That makes sense” You glance down at Tim and he is looking up at you with wide eyes.

He glances away when you look down at him, but after a minute he glances up at you shyly, “Juice?”

“Manners Timmy”

Tim glances over at Jason and giggles, quickly looking back u at you, “Juice, please?”

“Of course, pumpkin!”

You set Tim down on the floor and go to retrieve a box of juice. By the time you get back Jason has already put down all of the papers and is looking at you expectantly. “Done already?”

“Yes. This is a damn nice place, I think that Timmy will like it here”

“Do you want him to start tonight?”

“Is that possible?” Jason looks genuinely surprised

“Of course! I just need your information and the information of an emergency contact in case we can’t get ahold of you”

Jason nods and quickly jots down his information and Alfred’s information. If everyone is out on patrol then Alfred will be the only one available to get to Tim if something happens.

“Well it is now 7! So you can leave him here whenever” You crouch down and look Tim in the eye, “Are we gonna play tonight while daddy goes to work?”

Tim looks away from you and up at Jason, “Daddy?”

Jason slides out of the chair and gathers Tim up into his arms, nuzzle Tim’s downy soft hair, “Yeah buddy, daddy”

Tim throws his arms around Jason’s neck and squeezes gently, and then looks back at you. “Daddy come back?”

You smile, “Yeah, daddy will come get you after work”

Tim nods and takes your hand, waving at Jason, “Bye bye, daddy!”

You can see Jason’s eyes soften every time Tim calls him daddy, like he really didn’t expect to have earned that title, but you can see how much Jason adores this little boy. “Bye, Jason. I will see you tomorrow”

-

The first thing that you notice about Tim is that he is very smart, almost too smart for his own good. He doesn’t really like the pretend games that a lot of the children his age enjoy, but he does like to build things. He sticks close to you, preferring your company more than the other children, but when a little girl comes over and asks him to play superhero he finally begins to open up.

You watch as the children continue to play until about 9:00 PM, and then you gather them up and bring them to the sleeping room. Each child gets their own bed, and they each get tucked in by you. Tim is the last one to get tucked in, “’m not sleepy Y/N” he mumbles, his eyes already drooping

“That’s okay, sweetheart. Why don’t you lay here quietly then, you can just rest your eyes a little bit”

Tim nods quietly, and cuddles under the blankets. You smile fondly and lean down to gently give him a kiss on his forehead. “Goodnight, Timmy”

-

The first thing you notice when you walk back out into the play room is that there is a person shaped shadow in the corner. The shadow is small, most likely that of a child, but still it is not less shocking.

“Hello?”

It is the newest Robin who steps out of the shadow, “Hello, Y/N. It has been awhile”

You grin and walk over to the fridge, tossing Robin a grape juice box, “I was wondering when the Big Bad Bat would let you visit again”

Robin chuckles, sitting in the armchair beside yours and watching as you turn up the volume on the security feed for the sleeping room.

“He might stop by as well. It seems that you are in the care of a child that I consider a brother”

“Let me guess, Tim?”

“How did you …”

“You act like I haven’t known all of your secret identities for years now, little bird. I knew when Red Robin was changed into a toddler” you chuckle, “Although I was very surprised when Jason Todd, the Red Hood, came here looking for a daycare!”

Damian chuckled and removed his mask “I was quite pleased when Todd informed us of his choice in care facilities. Father was quite angry when he believed that Timothy was left alone in an apartment”

“Your father needs to learn to trust your brother more. He has become Timmy’s father, you should have seen the way he looked at Tim when he was called daddy for the first time”

“Your infatuation with the Red Hood is disgusting. You could do so much better than Todd” Damian sneered

You grin at Damian “You know that you love your brother, Dami. I also know that you would never approve of anyone that I chose, but that you would rather have me with someone you know, than a complete stranger”

Damian sighed, “Unfortunately you are correct in your assumption”

“You have a crush on the Red Hood?”

You whipped around, coming face to face with Jason Todd sans helmet, but he still had on his domino mask. “Umm …”

Jason grinned, “That’s really fucking convenient that you already know about everything”

You look suspiciously at the vigilante, “Why do you say that?”

“Because I was going to ask you on a date when I came to get Timmy I the morning” Jason scratches the back of his head nervously, “So, would you like to go on a date with me?”

You stare at him with wide eyes for a minute, “Y-yes, oh my God, yes!”

Jason grinned, “Awesome!”

At that moment Tim stumbled out of the sleeping room, rubbing one tiny fist against his eye, “Daddy?”

Jason walked over and scooped Tim into his arms, “Hey Timmy”

Tim nuzzled into Jason’s shoulder, “Missed you daddy”

“I missed you too, sweetheart” He tuned Tim so he could see more of the room, “Look, Dami came to visit you too”

“Dami?”

“Yes, Timothy, I came to check on your progress”

Tim just grinned excitedly, “Dami!” he squealed and lunged at the current Robin

Damian quickly stepped forward and scooped up the excited toddler. He began to bounce Tim gently, talking about how his father was still trying to find a cure for the de-aging spell that was cast over him.

Jason walked over so he was standing next to you, “In all honesty, I’m kind of hoping that they can’t find a cure. I mean if anyone deserves a second chance at growing up, it’s that kid”

You reach out and take Jason’s hand in yours, “You and me both, Jay, you and me both”

You continue to watch as Damian keeps talking to Tim, and Tim slowly relaxes and falls back asleep. Once he does Damian goes and puts the two year old back to bed, he is putting his domino back into place when he comes back out.

“Goodbye, Y/N, Todd”

“Bye Dami!”

Jason leans down and places a gently kiss to your forehead, “I’ll see you tomorrow. Make sure you take care of my little boy”

You close your eyes and when you open them again they are gone.

Swan Queen. Okay, listen. Idgaf how season six ended. Idgaf about how season seven began. I will not watch either of them because I have dedicated my time to this headcanon that I know in my heart to be true:

So, the Savior saves the Evil Queen with the power of True Love? Amazing. Beautiful. Astonishing. Showstopping.

But listen, folks. Listen. Hear me out.

THE EVIL QUEEN SAVES THE SAVIOR WITH TRUE LOVE’S KISS AS A CULMINATION OF HER REDEMPTION ARC BECAUSE SHE FINALLY ACCEPTS, REALLY ACCEPTS TRUE LOVE INTO HER HEART.

Captain Guyliner is not Emma’s TL. We know this. Robin Hood? He was Regina’s soulmate, which one could argue means he is her TL too, but he was obliterated and they were never confirmed as true loves. Also, removing her agency by forcing Mr. Blandsome on her because of some pixie dust? Pass.

Because Jmo is only staying around for one or two episodes in season 7, that’s fine. I can work with that. I’ve decided Emma was put under a curse and incapacitated for the whole season for…reasons.

Captain Guyliner tried to wake her up, but, again, he is NOT her TL. They’re freaking out. They don’t know what to do. Guyliner, Rumple, and Regina go off on some nonsense adventures to find another way to bring Emma back.

On the way, they meet many friends and foes alike, but all the while, Regina has this sinking doubt in the pit of her stomach. This is her best friend. Her person. Her favourite, brash annoyance. What will she do if she can’t bring her back? She has to. She has to. This whole arc very intentionally mirrors Ruby’s True Love episode because it is the queer love story we deserved.

They meet Mulan along the way toward the end of their journey to find that she has found a home with Philip and Aurora (because they are my OUAT OT3), and Mulan spits some truth that Regina was not ready to hear.

After all the shenanigans, Regina, in a moment of frustration, just kisses Emma. It’s a last ditch effort. She doesn’t even think it’ll work (’though deep down, she desperately wishes it will because part of her knows the truth), but it does work. Emma wakes up. Regina apologizes for kissing Emma without her consent, but Emma silences it with a kiss of her own because, like Regina, part of her knew the truth too.

MY BABES LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER. THEY ARE STILL CO-PARENTING THEIR KID AND OCCASIONALLY BABYSITTING ROLAND BECAUSE THAT KID DESERVES SOME LOVE TOO. THE SERIES ENDS WITH AN INTERESTING TURN OF EVENTS: THE EVIL QUEEN SAVES THE SAVIOR WITH THE POWER OF TRUE LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE.

This is season seven. No one can convince me otherwise.

Psalm 15:1-5 (NASB)
O Lord, who may abide in Your tent?
Who may dwell on Your holy hill?
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart.
He does not slander with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
But who honors those who fear the Lord;
He swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He does not put out his money at interest,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.

The elusive Demonstrative (what the Types never realized they rocked at)

Apparently, contrary to popular belief, the 6th function is actually among your stronger ones, and a lot more visible to othes than it is to yourself - the truly useless ones are 5 and 7, though you can sort of passively understand the 5th. 

Also, since you’re filtering out the 5th for your 1st two to do their magic, this has nothing to act as a strong pair with; From what I’ve read this sort of information is perceived as obvious or uninteresting and therefore less relevant to the decision making process, or something you use mostly in private, or,  you don’t know how to use it independently but it keeps feeding data into what you’re doing with your preferred function pair. So unlike the other shadow functions who are mostly notable by their suckyness, disconnect or, an case of the 7th, almost total absence, this one’s actually a big & fundamental part of your personality:


ISXP: Si! - They’re typically very dexterous, make great things with their hands, have appreciation for aesthetics/practicality/sweet comfortableness & good with procedural knowledge (”How to.”) 
ESXJ: Se! - Though they prefer peace & quiet, they can be pretty forceful & agressive when needed, they may enjoy fashion or luxuries, and be good at picking up people’s intetions and status from details. 
EXTP: Te! - It’s no coincidence that they’re often good businessmen, even if their main strenght & motivation lies with Se or Ne. They pick up useful facts/ procedures for later use or to back up their arguments with, also, they know incompetence when they see it. They’re not afraid to venture out of the box but, generally speaking, do know where the box is and what it’s properties are. 
IXTJ: Ti! - From what I’ve read ISTJs use many smaller ‘inner logic systems’ for their work but aren’t that interested in putting them together into a comprehensive one, seeing them more as tools in a Te/Si manner; while INTJs build them from an early age but use them more as fodder for the Ni-o-matron whose conclusions they trust more, they’re comfortable taking leaps and might find having to explain everything restrictive/ prefer working it out along the way via Te. 
IXJF: Fi! - Since tumblr is full of INFJs, you might’ve noticed that they, or the common famous examples, do often seem like people with strong, deep convictions; Their sensor cousins will likewise often be “upstanding” in a Si-ish manner but also combined that into a fierce manner like the STJs; It also helps them with understanding ppl in a deeper level, but they’ll be more likely “trust” the other person’s reaction even if they can’t relate to it compared to someone with concious Fi.
EXFP: Fe! - You’ll easily notice that they’re expressive, emphatic, and create a warm & lively atmosphere around themselves, but when you ask them for their reasons for anything, they’ll give you distinctly Fi-ish reasonings. I think it’s rather pleasant, they’re easy to approach but you get a sense that they’d tell you if you did something that displeased them, instead of feeling obliged to put up with you.
ENXJ: Ne! - Actually very ingenious/creative, but this huge potential is channeled toward very specific ends, one more reason why they’re kind of fascinating high-pressure creatures. Might enjoy speculation but not take it seriously as Ni always needs to have a “point” to an action and they’ll be almost perpetually busy doing work/helping people.
INXP: Ni! - Actually like stuff with symbolism, hidden meanings, etc, also tend to have a pretty good “mental holodeck” to visualise szenarios, not just alternative ones but linear continuiations; Will typically not act on premonitions if they can’t “explain” them with their dominant function especially when they start considering what else could happen.


This has interested me alot since I found out it existed but there isn’t too much info on it or how to make it more usable if it’s even possible; 

But aparently, as I’ve read the “natural” way to use it is just to hammer away with your 1st and 2nd functions and that “sparks o the 6th will just fly out”

That was very enlightening to me b/c I’ve always liked this whole symbolism stuff but you always hear it’s a Ni thing and I’m most certainly an INTP, so, how does this work…

But the truth is I do tend to arrive at those inductive conclusions a bit later in the process after I’ve already spent a while deliberating on the problem,  whereas, when you look at the Ni doms, especially INFJs (since they’re not contrained by pragmatic concerns) they just fire off in that direction and don’t stop, it’s truly amazing to witness.

You could say that for us INXPs the “final meaning” of an onject is an attribute of the object, whereas for an INXJ, to an extent, treats the object as if that is the main thing about it.
