very important to you

Do what again, Gaster? Oh! You mean the part where you leaked fluid and made all your friends worry on a very important day while probably having a bad reaction to a compound you can't tell anyone about because of its horrific origin? Or did you just have a good sleep on the floor?

-“W-Well, no. I’ll be more cautious and do more scientifically sound testing than this for next time. Like I’ve said, I’ve used this before and I’ve never had a bad reaction -I just thought of it as self-medicating. I-I-I never meant to worry anyone, oh goodness…”

-“I forget that… people care about me.”

Reminder of the Day

The asexual community is very diverse. That being so, it’s important for all of us to realize that asexual experiences can look very different from one another and that’s okay! It’s also very important for us to realize that asexual representation that works for you doesn’t necessarily represent everyone. There is more than one asexual story, and we can learn a lot through diverse narratives. So, it’s beneficial for all of us to support asexual representation in the many forms that may take rather than just the one that represents us the most.

Hi, do you have any advice on writing prophecies?

Yes.

One of the most important things about writing “prophecies” is cliches. Prophecies have been so overdone with certain cliches that people are beginning to tire of the very idea of a prophecy- that doesn’t mean that prophecies are Now Very Bad. It just means that writers have to get even more creative when writing a prophecy.

First, some things to avoid when writing prophecies:

*** disclaimer: as with everything in writing, prophecy techniques are a gray area. Yeah, maybe you can pull it off if you are original enough. But generally, these are just some things that have been used tiresomely before.

1. The Perfect Poem:This means those prophecies you see sometimes that are super dramatic and usually rhyming. I don’t know where it came from, but there seems to be this idea that if something rhymes, it is all of a sudden a Very Important Thing. Additionally- the case of the magical prophecy that always rhymes. You’ve probably seen this before- an ancient prophecy is written on an Egyptian tomb or something, and then the explorer translates is aloud and it flawlessly rhymes in perfect English. If you want to do that, there had better be a reason, because rhymes don’t translate between languages since you are, you know, using different words. Also related: cryptic prophecies. The ones that are jumbled and poetic and it’s hard to tell what it’s saying exactly. These are bad when done just for the poetry and good when done with multiple interpretations in mind. I’ll get back to that.

2. The Delivery: Often when prophecies are delivered, they are delivered in the most dramatic way possible. Again, if done right, this can create a very intense and intriguing scene. But for the most part, people have gotten used to dramatic lighting and strange smelling mist and the seer going into a trance or something. If your prophecy is going to be delivered via Magical Ritual, make it an original magic ritual. Also, making a ritual scene runs the risk of misrepresenting and generally insulting cultures in which certain divination is sacred.

3. The Chosen One: Possibly one of the most popular tropes of all time, The Chosen One is the one the prophecies spoke of long ago, the chosen hero sent to save us all, and totally super done. Chosen Ones can be intriguing characters, but honestly? If you can do something different, do. Don’t jump to Chosen Ones. Really, really put work into avoiding your Chosen Ones. They cause trouble. As a somewhat off topic note, I personally love stories where the hero wasn’t chosen, where is was just coincidence or bad luck or good luck or whatever. The hero isn’t the person who was destined, they were just the one who happened to step up to the plate and swing, prophecy or no. It kind of shows how anyone can be a hero, but a hero isn’t just anyone. 

What You Should Do:

Do the opposite of what you don’t do. Yay, I’m so helpful. As a general rule, try to be original. Easier said than done, I know, but give creativity your best shot. As for random tips…

1. Clarity: If your prophecy is going to be poetically unclear, use that to your advantage. Make each line have a double meaning or different possible interpretations that could potentially be true. Surprise your readers and your characters and even yourself- it doesn’t always mean what you think it means. Explore the possibilities. 

2. Keep Track of Fate: If your prophecy mentions multiple people or events, make sure to follow through with your story. Don’t forget any details, it has to add up or it will all make no sense. Unless, of course, the point it that the prophecy was wrong. 

3. How Much Do They Know?: This one confuses me in a lot of stories. How much do your people know about this prophecy? If the prophecy is ancient or widespread, then there might have been plenty of opportunity to study it. Who knows, maybe they figured out a few lines in the time they’ve had to read it over and over before it became true. 

4. Being Cryptic: This is just a quick tip on how you can make your prophecies make less sense- maybe, originally, they made perfect sense. Language and culture is constantly evolving. Maybe the prophecy made perfect sense way back when it was spoken, but now it has been so long that nobody really remembers “brillig” or “slithy toves” even are.

5. Research: I kind of touched on this in point two of the don’ts, but I think it deserves its own spot here. If your method of prophecy is based off of something real, some real oracle or ritual, know your stuff and portray it accurately, or don’t do it at all. This goes from the Ancient Greeks to modern kitchen witchcraft and beyond.

Remember, this story is yours. Make your prophecy your own, too. There can be a million prophecies in the world, but this one is yours, so show how special is in the way only you can.

And thank you for the ask!

BTS Reaction To S/O Getting a Tattoo Over Self Harm Scars

Anon asked: Oooooh I dunno if this is too sensitive to ask, but can I get a BTS reaction to their s/o wanting to get a tattoo over old self harm scars on their thighs? 

No it’s not too sensitive to write about, there’s really not much that’ll make me uncomfortable. Thanks for the request! -Spice

IF YOU ARE TRIGGERED BY MENTIONS OF SELF HARM, DO NOT READ

Rap Monster:

As long as it was something you truly wanted and thought about, he’d be all for it. Namjoon would probably consider it as your own way of healing from your past, so he would encourage the tattoo. Low key he would probably find the tattoo to be incredibly sexy.

Jin:

Seokjin isn’t the biggest fan of tattoos, but if you felt that getting the tattoo was very important to you, he’d support you. He’d definitely want to be there to hold your hand as you got your tattoo, and would complement you on how pretty it looked.

Suga:

He’d be all for you getting a tattoo as long as that’s what you wanted. Yoongi didn’t want you trying to cover up your scars because someone else had made a comment; he accepted you for the way you were. Either way,  he would be happy to discuss possible tattoo designs with you.

J-Hope:

Hoseok might jokingly suggest that you get his face tattooed on your thighs, but despite his jokes he would be extremely supportive of you getting tattoos. He would make sure to tell you that he also found your scars to be beautiful, but he couldn’t wait to see what pretty art you’d get on your thighs.

Taehyung:

The idea would probably surprise him at first, since it was such a sudden suggestion. Taehyung would want to know your reasons for getting the tattoo and make sure it was really what you wanted, but he would be all for you getting the tattoos once you told him.

Originally posted by chimneytaels

Jimin:

He might be a little hesitant for you since tattoos were something permanent, but seeing that it was something you genuinely wanted he’d be happy to support you. Jimin would probably want to doodle something himself to maybe inspire what tattoo you’d get on your thighs.

Originally posted by sweaterpawsjimin

Jungkook:

Like Taehyung, he would probably be a little taken aback by the sudden idea, but he found the idea of tattoos to be extremely sexy, so he’d support you. Jungkook would definitely want to sit with you as you got the tattoo done, since he was curious about the process.

Sometimes I'm so afraid that mclennon will disappear someday. Rarely do people know abt them in my city/country (which is not native english) and I always doubt no one has ever remembered them. I'm so anguished. All I can do is watching their photos and youtube and going to tumblr every single day, but all in all, I am lonely at all. Sorry if it's too pessimistic.

LONELY????

are you talking about john lennon and paul mccartney??the greatest music duo EVER??? the band who sold 600 billion albums worldwide???? The band that after 60 years has still the craziest bunch of beatlemaniacs EVER??!? AND YOU THINK YOU’RE ALONE LOVING THEM??

You should change friends, my dear. And also, the friends you make or you could make on Tumblr and/or on the internet DO COUNT. They can be very important and supportive. Find someone who share the same passion you have, and you’ll never feel lonely again. Trust me, you can’t imagine how many mclennon fans want to talk to you right now. Come off anon and make some friends NOW.

  • Thomas: I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal.
  • Jimmy: Really.
  • Thomas: People know me.
  • Jimmy: Well, I'm very happy for you.
  • Thomas: I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my room smells of rich mahogany.

Niansue, I wish to seek your wisdom. I understand it takes more than one day or one try to be as good as where you or others are, but when I look upon my drawing, it's never good enough. It has become a depression, and I don't have someone to share my frustration with. What should I do?

Know that I and most artists relate to what you are feeling right now!!! We all have our highs and lows and right now you’re just in a rut which I wish I could just magical make disappear but like all complex problems there is no simple solution. If ranting about your frustration is what you need then I’m here for you, because I’m starting to go through something similar and I know ranting your feelings is a good way to let out your emotions while also making you feel at least a bit better~ 

As far as what I do is that I draw what I want to draw. I think that it’s very important to draw whatever you want b/c it’s your art and you’re the one putting the effort into drawing, so you should do what you want~<3 Other then that I like taking walks around my neighborhood as just being outside feels really good. And if you just don’t feel like doing art at all then go ahead and not do art that day. Art will be there another day so why not take a day off for yourself and have a self-care day~<3 

I hope that what I say helps you in any way possible and know that, like all bad things, this will pass one day~ I hope you have a lovey day~<3 

anonymous asked:

Oda, as possibly Dazai's first true friend in his eyes, the guy that finally pushed him to leave the mafia and going to do better things, what do you think about him? What is he truly to you?

Dazai…?

Dazai is…obviously very important to me. He always has been. For as long as I’ve known him, since the first few guarded, stiff encounters we shared, I’ve felt closer to him than anyone else in my life.

I’m not sure what drew me to him initially, but I’m guessing the fact that he was just so young probably had something to do with it. No one knew his background, and for such a small kid to be accepted into the mafia without question from the old boss was something…exceptional. Sure, we had a few children in our care, but they were either relatives of important, well-off executives or were there temporarily, thereafter passed off to someone who knew what to do with them—usually one of Kouyou’s girls. I found myself checking up on him now and again during his time stifled under Mori’s wing.

It was like that for some time. Dazai quickly made a name for himself, and not only for his astounding youth. During the first couple of years, I left him pretty much alone, but I did keep an ear out for any news of this supposed prodigy. It took a while for us to even meet face-to-face, but things eased greatly after we’d established some form of acquaintanceship, and, eventually, as in over the course of a few  years, we ended up becoming as close as we did—and both of us were the better for it.

To put things a little in perspective: for a while there, after having met Soseki, Dazai was my reason to keep going. I’m not sure he ever knew, but after that meeting I was torn, desperately grasping for an ounce of security after having those hopes, that light I thought I’d buried, realized—spoken aloud, no less—by another human being. My worldview was flipped, my mind scattered, but Dazai was still there, same as ever; smiling, laughing at Lupin, making ill-mannered jokes and proving himself again and again whilst making a complete ass of himself to any woman within the mile. He was comforting to me, then, but I don’t think he never realized.

To say that Dazai is important to me would be an insulting understatement.

Dazai is my friend, and I’m immensely glad to have been his friend, to have inspired him to change, even if it meant my eventual end. 

I’m proud, so very proud of the person he’s become, but I refuse to take every ounce of credit for that. I really believe that the desire to abandon the mafia was always there, deep down, but I acknowledge that my sacrifice brought the idea into reality. The person he has become is greater than anything I could have hoped for way back when, though I still don’t think he understands just how much he’s changed.

Dazai is someone I helped save.

Dazai is my friend.

Introducing the Kranion Blights, who are intentionally made to be completely ridiculous looking. They are a goofy parody of…actually wait, I can’t say because they’re technically still spoilers.

There’s seven of these weirdos and they are very unconventional bosses. They’re also plot important in the sense that something very good will happen if you defeat all of them. I’ll give you a hint: there being seven of them is important. There’s seven of something else in this silly game, isn’t there?

*muffled steppenwolf playing in the distance*

based on this, which made me squeak so loud i scared my chicken

Reasons why you need to see Power Rangers (NO SPOILERS)

1. VERY FIRST ON SCREEN AUTISTIC SUPERHERO

•  Said autism is not treated as a weakness and really makes said character the stand out of the movie

2.VERY FIRST ON SCREEN LGBTQ+ SUPERHERO

 • It’s not a topic that is dealt with throughout the whole movie. They talk about it for like two minutes 

• No one treats said character any differently after the reveal

3. THE WOMEN ARE NOT ONCE DOUBTED TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE THEMSELVES

• Not a single sexist comment throughout the entire movie. Not. One.

• (At least I don’t remember any. I may be wrong but I’m 99% sure I’m right)

4. EVERYONE IS FLAWED OR HAS A ‘disability’ 

5. ONE OF THE MESSAGES IS THAT DOING AN AWFUL THING DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN AWFUL PERSON

• I can tell you a lot of people need someone to tell them that

6. IT TACKLES A SHIT TON OF ISSUES AND I LOVE THE MOVIE FOR THAT

7. ALPHA FIVE ISN’T HELPLESS AT ALL

8. ZORDON ISN’T PERFECT AND KINDA SELFISH

9. THIS MOVIE WILL FUCK YOU UP WITHOUT A DOUBT

• I cried like three times

10. THE SOUNDTRACK IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

• Includes The Score, twenty one pilots, Fitz and The Tantrums, and Tove Lo

11. IT’S STILL POWER RANGERS JUST LESS CHEESY

12. IT’S PRETTY FUCKING FUNNY AT SOME PARTS

13. THEY DON’T GET ALONG AUTOMATICALLY 

• It takes a lot of the movie for them to be able to be open with one another

14. THERE IS CAMEO FROM THE ORIGINAL PINK AND GREEN RANGERS

(KK THAT’s ALL I CAN THINK OF RIGHT NOW SO PLS GO SEE IT)

Listen, listen. The fact Eliot Spencer’s response to Parker being upset and asking if they could kill the guy who upset her was a shrug and, “Yeah. I mean, I could.” will never, ever not be important to me.
