we love designers who get it

Someone said sex in a relationship isn’t important.. well to me it is. (If it’s not a requirement for you, I respect that - this is about people who do have regular sex and the importance of reciprocal intimacy)

When people refuse to acknowledge the importance sex plays in a relationship it bothers me. As a woman, do you know how unenjoyable and painful it is, being intimate with someone who doesn’t know nor learn how to get you aroused, or doesn’t see any value in foreplay? A weak stroke with selfish tendencies?

Are you a charity?

Everyone deserves good sex. Woman’s bodies weren’t designed for men’s sexual disposal and saving him from a bruised ego by being silent and accepting poor quality sex isn’t fair. If a man doesn’t know how to operate a woman’s body, then he shouldn’t be near one until he’s finished studying and vice versa.

Sexual chemistry is vital. How are we supposed to embrace each other in love equally, if one persons needs are constantly overlooked. The spiritual ties to sex is way too deep for anyone to put up with a lifetime of bad sex.

Communicate with each other.

Different Types of Hufflepuffs
  • The Soldier: the epitome of "Yes, we can" always defying odds, Eye of the Tiger playing in the background
  • The Sunflower: Friends with everyone, never gossips, some bitter people don't like them because "no one is ACTUALLY that nice" yes they are
  • The Punk: wears exclusively leather, probably has hair dyed a crazy color, chokers are a must, does not put up with people's shit
  • The Dork: blushing 80% of the time, loves the little things in life, lives for sweater vests
  • The Guardian: will fight anyone who talks shit about friends, probably has a hit list
  • The Designated Driver: always taking care of friends, gets called "Mom" or "Dad" a lot, low key loves it
  • The Golden Child: perfection™ incarnate, cannot do anything wrong, probably was on the LIFE cereal boxes as a kid
  • The Sass Master: has a snarky comeback for everything normally followed by a chorus of "yassss queen", lives life with a smirk or cocked eye brow

taylor is obviously super talented and her music speaks to people which clearly plays a massive part of her success but in this age of pirating and streaming, the reason why she’s able to sell so many records is because she makes it worth it for her fans. at the end of the day she could be the best songwriter in the world but we could all illegally download the album and move on and she’d have the same sales numbers as every other great musician.

she invested in a relationship with her fans, but more than that, she makes the process of buying an album exciting. we don’t just buy her albums because we love her, we buy them because she has designed them in a way that makes us genuinely want to own them. she puts in effort to ensure that buying her physical albums is an actual experience that we can share with not only other fans, but with her. it’s something that we look forward to. 

other artists who see how much she sells could choose to be bitter about it but personally if i was them i would probably either just be happy for her or try and learn something from it and adapt to her method instead of getting shady and feeling entitled to her sales without putting in the effort but what do i know

Reasons why Lady Layton might be delayed

-Hershel is MISSING

-Seriously, Level 5 can’t remember where they left him 

-Layton’s voice actor has gone AWOL

-”Mr Miller, we really need you to record some lines of the professor in peril -” “IT’S BAD ENOUGH I HAD TO SHRIEK IN PAIN FOR THE LIGHT BEAM SCENE IN AZRAN LEGACY. SERIOUSLY, LEAVE LAYTON ALONE.”

-Alfendi is threatening to destroy Level 5 unless they include him 

-Every PL character wants a cameo and it’s taking forever to add them all in

-The developers are dying to give Clive Dove a cameo, but this makes no sense he’s evil and meant to be in prison??? Who cares - everyone has or has had a crush on Clive Dove. The fanboys will love it. Do it. 

- Too many plot twists convoluting the narrative

- The character designs lack diversity, so they’re adding a greater variety. 

- They want to put Lady Layton on the Switch too 

- They’re making Mystery Room 2 at the same time

- “Sh*t, we forgot Flora again!”

- They’re writing more family bonding moments 

- Beautifully animated cutscenes aren’t made in a day

- Older Emmy needs more muscles 

- Finding new voice actors is hard

- Can’t decide on which character must get kidnapped 

- “Have we decided on a mother for Kat yet? Is she alive? Are all the Layton kids orphans? Who knows?” 

- Luke prefers America (he’s teamed up with Phoenix Wright) and doesn’t want to come back to England  

- “We promised comedy in this game but it’s a little lacking… Time for a fart joke!”

- Can’t think of a reason why Sherl can talk 

- “Do we give Katrielle a girlfriend…?”

-”Yes!”

FICS FOR STEREK’S VALENTINE’S DAY FIC REC

As it’s coming up to Valentine’s day I thought I would put a rec together of all my favourite Valentine’s themed fics!

Hope you enjoy, and remember as always, make sure you check rating, tags and warnings on all fics!


Always (1/1 | 1,066 | Not Rated)

Derek’s in love with Stiles but thinks he’s about to lose him. Stiles was never going to let Derek go in the first place. Fluff ensues.

Sometimes love is an obligation to your grandmother (1/1 | 6,982 | Rated M)

Dearest Derek,

Welcome to your 21st year! As per the wonderful tradition of the house of Hale, you will be attending some of the best places to be single that Beacon Hills has to offer today. First, it’s to the Coffee Shop on Main where you will get two lemon zest chocolate chip muffins. Listen to me very carefully, I’m going to ease you into the way this works. Buy two muffins, but you’re only going to eat one. Find someone cute to give the second one to…

The letter went on, but Derek was staring at it in horror, unable to process how terrible that sounded in just the first paragraph. Today was going to suck.

*

Or: Derek’s grandmother relishes setting her single grandchildren up on Valentine’s Day. Only, less ‘setting up’ and more ‘forcing them to run a singles-only scavenger hunt where the prize is love or at least sex’.

Derek never wins. Derek never WANTS TO win.

Kiss Me Under the Light of a Thousand Stars (1/1 | 5,631 | Not Rated)

“It was a true love spell,” he admits quietly. “It was supposed to help me find my true love. And apparently I suck at magic as much as I suck at dating because I screwed this up too.”

~~~

In which Stiles’ Valentine’s Day love spell goes very wrong.

Or perhaps very right.

Valentine’s strike (2/2 | 6,015 | PG-13)

Stiles hates Valentines Day. It was the bane of his existance. But he’s home for the 'holiday’ and has nothing to do since everyone he knows is busy. Except Derek, Derek is the only one alone as him.

Or

The five times Derek and Stiles date by accident and the one time one of them actually ask.

Thank Jackson for me (1/1 | 3,187 | PG-13)

Derek keeps asking the wrong kind of questions.

Hot for Teacher(’s Aide) (1/1 | 8,050 | PG-13)

“He invited you to his apartment.”

“To do a lesson plan.”

“Yeah and to probably lesson your plan while you’re there,” Scott said, waggling his eyebrows.

“That made no sense, but you still managed to make it sound dirty,” Stiles said. “I’m impressed.”

Keep reading

If language can’t express everything, why do we bother?
Poetry makes no sense but we keep reading. My favourite color is blue. I painted my room blue once and things made sense for awhile. My thoughts are dim and blue and I think I’m my own foil. I wanted to be something worth loving, a color worth looking at. I wanted to live and be more than a shadow that paid attention to peoples fake smiles and melancholy that lied between each laughter. My thoughts are scattered, yes yes I get lost in my head a lot. I’ve always felt off. I ache for something more than this ordinary life but I’m too lazy to go search for my Great perhaps. what a joke. Maybe you’re like me. I’m still searching for myself. Some nights I dream about the universe and how we came to be. I’ve seen love crash and burn. I’ve seen who I am and I’m still lost.
I can feel my breathing and heartbeat, slow but steady, sun and moon.
I’m falling deeper into a sky that isn’t designed for swimming.
Maybe life doesn’t make much sense now.
Some day we’ll forget about who we are today, some day we’ll change forever. Some day you’ll understand the why.

It is your story and we need to respect that.

This is for all those creators, animators, voice actors and everyone involved with the making of a story that is a show, a book, a comic book, a manga and/or a movie (to name a few)…


 Recently, someone took pictures while on a tour in Studio Mir. those pictures belong to DreamWorks and the Voltron Legendary Defender creators. After the poor person, posted them, they went viral within the VLD Community. Soon,they were  being contacted by Studio Mir to take those pictures down, due to legal reasons involving DreamWorks.

And this person did their best. Never in my lifetime have i seen so many people coming together to delete all those pictures from tumblr, twitter instagram etc….

And we got victory.

But of course the victory was short lived.


It started with one person. A person who, claimed they loved the romantic ship of Keith and Lance from Voltron Legendary Defender, and kept on posting those pictures all the while saying to Studio Mir,  ‘I won’t take them down unless you confirm Klance Canon’.

(i.e the ‘ship’ name of Keith and Lance.)

People started to say so many things about this person as in:

“They hate Klance and are making us shippers look bad!”

or: “They aren’t even in the Voltron fandom, they are just here being a troll (aka, nuisance)!”

To be honest, it doesn’t matter who they ship, why they did this or if they even are in the fandom. What matters here most is 1) all the people who have planned out the story of VLD and who are now, getting either, discouraged by how these so called ‘fans’ are acting or are rolling their eyes at us. And 2) The consequences Studio Mir can face due to this once small accident.

And with this one idea from that person ‘blackmailing’ Studio Mir, came copycats. Around thirty other people or so are doing the same. ‘Blackmailing’.  All claiming they just want LGBTQ representation in a very successful show like VLD but not knowing they are jeopardizing the chances of ever getting that in this and possibly many other shows.



Now, onto the show itself.

I fell for Voltron Legendary Defenders because of how it just isn’t a kids show to me. Its very well made, humorous to all ages and all in all one of the best reboots i have seen in awhile (my 32 year old Brother agrees to this too.)

But, again, as someone who too, ships Klance i have never felt more ashamed? 

A lot of people who ship LGBTQ relationships in shows and books that aren’t canon are seen as ‘Fetishizing’ these characters. 

The romantic relationship of two men or two women or all of the above, should never be considered a fetish. Because it is now the real world. Romance is real and for people to fetishize that, is sick and saddening.

I personally, love the dynamic of Klance. But, i also love and adore the dynamic of Klance not being romantic. Them becoming best friends is more than any person in this fandom could ask for. 

To even enter into a romantic relationship, people NEED to become the best of friends first. It’s common sense.



Now, i know the panel for VLD is coming up (?), and whether or not they address this isn’t our business but, what is and will always be our business is how we react. 

Our actions speak louder than words.

If Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos, walk onto that stage and say, “Keith and Lance will never enter into a romantic relationship.” it is OUR jobs to know that this wasn’t because of some person on the internet that this was probably true from the start.

But, if they say, “Any and all romantic relations that will take place in this show in the future have been decided on our own and without the pressure of you lovely people of the fandom. We make things canon on our own terms and love the continuation of support from the fandom.”

Still if Klance becomes canon, that does not mean you go and praise the people who tried to ‘blackmail’ these people. If Keith and Allura get together you don’t go bashing and hating on those people who tried to ‘blackmail’ the creators. You sit and watch the show and learn to love it not for its ships, characters, design but for it as a whole.

I am sure that whatever happens the VLD team will see that, hey, we (as in the fandom) all are very happy with how they are going with the show. They recognize they can’t simply say “Yes gay will happen”  but they also know that if they happened to plan out romance before this whole ‘blackmail’ thing happened that they have the right to.

All in all, for those people who ship all the romance between characters, or even just LOVE the show as  a whole (all fans should at least) it’s our job to:
1: STAY POSITIVE
2: To remember, ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
And 3: To love the show for what it is.

 

Sincerely, Nina June.

Anon- A very good HC 10/10

@prettylittlepasha (Its not linking you, for some reason, sorry!)
You’re so welcome, thank you so much for the reblogs, and I’m really glad you like my style! <33

Anon- Maybe one day! I’m not great with being watched, tbh, it makes me really conscious of all the mistakes I make as I paint!

@mistye-dawne Haha! Thank you so much! I’m replying here because honestly I don’t really have much, anyone is totally welcome to build on what I post for it, or veer off and make their own stuff! (I can’t claim cafe AU’s, everyone and their mum has one ;P) I figured maybe it stays open til’ midnight (maybe ‘midnight’ cafe, since Nemuri is the manager?) Aizawa stumbles across it after a particularly long day of lecturing and grading, amazed that there’s actually somewhere to get coffee after hours. There’s also a local cat that pretty much stays there all day, which sealed the deal.

 Hizashi works the most shifts, and is obnoxious as always, Nemuri is a good boss, and an overzealous wingman, Toshi and Nao work there part-time (low key ship). And I want to get in the other characters too. But that’s literally all I got! No plans, I’m winging it :’). 

Extra notes I guess: Aizawa still teaches class 1-A, just at university age instead! And it IS set in Japan, I’m going for a more European feeling for the cafe interior because I’ve woefully never been to Japan, and I’d inevitably trip up on the food or decor. I want to try designing some of the things they sell there eventually, and I will probably research Japanese cafe food/desserts, along with having some things I’m more familiar with (pastries etc…)! I’m mostly just a hack though, sorry :P. (Maybe Nemuri visited Europe and decided to recreate the cafe feel, who knows ¬-¬)

Anon- I don’t particularly like Ochako/Deku, just because I’m way more invested in them as friends, and we need more characters that don’t get together just because they’re the opposite gender. Other than that…I love allll the teachers and adults in the show, I pretty much ship everyone if its presented well. I don’t really ship the students much, but I’m way out of school and they just feel too young to me, (even aged up to third year or whatever ppl do when they draw that stuff) I go up to hand holding and smooches before its like mmnope.

(And it kinda goes without saying that I don’t ship the teachers with the students, it might seem exciting when you’re young and at school, but its…like, its just…no teacher should do that, its wildly inappropriate, and generally emotionally manipulative. (we had a few cases in my school and its just not good) I get that its fictional when people draw/write it, and they can avoid the unhealthy parts of it, but I don’t think its a good thing to encourage, even when its not harming anyone directly.)

—————————————————

I’m going to try and remember to tag my sketches with ‘mal sketches’, if you don’t want to see them you can blacklist! All my chatter is tagged with ‘mal talks’.

okay so: here is my Big Post on Rewriting SU. this is super long like 7 pages in word so here it is under a cut, mobile users i am so sorry. the basic gist of it is to keep it as close to the original as possible while dodging character assassinations, giving underdeveloped characters some breathing room, sorting out the mess that is rose’s character, and so on.

Approaching Compatibility

In psychology the only “proven” work is that of B. F. Skinner and Ivan Pavlov. The rest of psychology is thought to be pure “hokum” as the fictitious Doctor Sheldon Cooper would say. This is not to confuse the issue with psychiatry, which is welcomed into the atheistic scientific community because of their enthusiastic use of psycho-medications and electroshock “therapy.”

The point is we are more than meets the eye. But because of the prevailing atheistic climate that has evolved since the 1930’s people have been told they are just being superstitious, then left to drift. Fortunately, the void is beginning to be filled by a combination of astrology and Jungian psychology. And from this new point of view, people are swamping various sites on the internet with questions such as: “When will I find love?”, “I’ve been hurt over and over, why?”, “When am I going to quit being alone?”, “My astrological sign is Kleenex, will I find a nose that is right for me?” and so on.
The answer is difficult but definitive: You must first discover yourself more deeply. You must go the work to discover what you really want in your life besides a companion. You are trying to use another person to solve your problems with loneliness, when in your aloneness you should be endeavoring to discover what in life you are passionate about (besides sex).
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” we ask our children. This applies to you as well. What is your passion, what really turns on your lights? Astronomy? Set lighting and design? Advanced computer miniaturization engineering? Organic farming? Professional cooking? Overseas fashion importing.
Obviously, the list is endless. Before committing to love and marriage, I say you must get in touch with this deeper self that causes the atheists to scream “hellloooo!”, discover something you are really passionate about in life and then go for it! Go to school, get wide world exposure, get an apprenticeship, or whatever, and your delighted-with-life attitude will attract a significant other who will become your equal, partner, and someone whom you will love rather than need.

warning I'm ranting

tbh am I the only one who like…. wishes jewish people could be supported in our excellence? Like other groups can be proud and flaunt and show off their businesses and celebrities, and they 100% deserve to do that!! But like every time a Jew tries to, tries to create something or show off or say “look at this cool, proud Jewish celeb!” They get shut down and yelled at and suddenly everything they do is problematic and they can’t be proud. Like, let jews be super proud and talk about being Jewish and let us talk about stuff and celebrities!!! Let us be Jewish!!!

Our identities aren’t always fucking political and not everything we do is bad. A Jewish person who puts Magen davids on every design? Awesome!! A Jewish person who constantly talks about being Jewish??? AWESOME!!! Jews who maybe want to talk about Israel and enjoy it a little bit, and go there and say “I loved my time in Israel” because it’s the only truly safe country or state or smth for us? THEY ARE FINE. Because everyone hates us and we NEVER get to enjoy ourselves loudly. So leave us be.

anonymous asked:

Could we get something like the team cheering Shiro up after he froze or broke down during training, Something related to his PTSD. Just some positivity for the guy because he deserves it

i LOVE this request and i’m always up for some good ol team positivity and support!! :)

ALSO: i have a headcanon that whenever one of the paladins is sad, everyone sends their designated color of emoji heart and it instantly makes everyone feel better… it reminds them that there are other people close-by who care about them and understand exactly what they’re going through 💜

It’s such an interesting feeling. You really can’t describe it. Try it, and people will surely think you are high or drunk. That’s why we are so obsessed with getting our souls numb and our bodies even more senseless.

Simply because there is no high equal to love. Those who find love are lucky, because they don’t have to poison themselves. And those loners try everything to keep the high just to reach a certain amount of happiness.

It’s an interesting concept, purely by its design. Nothing can come close to it. In some ways it’s magical, but in other ways it can make you find comfort in darkness. The lack or overdose of it. You will go crazy and enjoy every minute of it.

you, me, and the moon

The first time Amy Santiago hears of Jake Peralta she’s sitting at the kitchen counter editing her essay for English. Her mom, Elena, is in the midst of baking a cake for her younger brother, Alex, and is also on the phone to one of her older brothers, Manny (only a year older than Amy, and just starting college), holding it precariously between her shoulder and ear. It doesn’t take long for the phone to slip and fall, clattering on the kitchen, and bring Amy out of her study trance as Elena swears in Spanish.

“Mijo,” her mother says to Manny, picking up the phone, “talk to your sister, I have to finish off Alex’s cake,”

Elena hands Amy the phone. “Mom,” Amy protests, “I’m studying,”

“Just for two seconds, Amelia. I need to finish off this cake.”

Amy sighs and takes the phone. There’s no protesting when her mother calls her Amelia, plus, she is semi -curious about how Manny is doing at college.

“Hi Manny,” she says, twiddling her pen in her fingers.

“Hey sis!” Manny replies loudly. All her brothers call her ‘sis’ much to her frustration; she wouldn’t be surprised if they’d all forgotten her name.

“How’s college?”

“Amazing, so much better than high school!” Manny says enthusiastically. “You’re seriously gonna love it.”

She smiles to herself. She will love it, and next year it will be her turn to go, finally.

“Yeah, I can’t wait. What’s your roommate like?”

“Oh, Jake? Jake’s awesome,” Manny replies, before calling out “Jake! Are you awesome?!”

A guy, presumably Jake, yells back, “Yep! I’m awesome!”

“Wow,” Amy says sarcastically, “he sounds awesome.”

“Wha’d she say?” Jake calls.

“She said you sound awesome!” Manny yells back at him, and Amy rolls her eyes.

“Tell her she’s right! And ask if she looks like a female version of you!”

“Nah,” her brother replies, “she looks more like a female version of Luis.”

Amy stops listening, and puts the phone down on the counter. “I’m going to study in my room.” she says to her mom, gathering her things, and heading up the stairs before Elena can protest.

How her brothers manage to annoy her whilst away at college astounds her.


It’s almost a year later that Amy actually meets Jake, despite the fact that she seems to hear about him every other day. Whenever Manny calls or visits there’s always another Jake story to tell, most of which are entertaining, but also depict Jake as the sort of person Amy wouldn’t want to to be cooped up with all summer. Yet somehow, that’s what happens.

Jake’s mom is away on an artist retreat all summer, or at least that’s what Manny tells Elena and Victor when he asks if Jake can stay for the summer. Amy’s sure the fact that half her brothers have officially moved out is one of the factors that lead to them agreeing.

The day Amy meets Jake for the first time, it’s hot and sunny, and she uncharacteristically has a stain on her top.

“You must be the famous sister!” is the first thing he says to her after he’s greeted her parents, and Manny, at the door.

“And I’m guessing you’re Jake?” she jokes, raising her eyebrows at him.

“The one and only!” he announces grandly, doing a mock bow, and her eyebrows rise even further. He offers her his hand, not to shake, like he had with her parents, but to high-five.

She high-fives him hesitantly, eyebrows still raised. He’s exactly as goofy as she’d imagined.

“Noice!” he exclaims. “And hey! We’re stain buddies!”

Her forehead creases. “What?”

He points at a ketchup stain on his shirt to a jam stain on hers. It must be from her toast earlier.

Amy blushes. “That’s not usually there,” she mutters defensively.

Jake just grins at her, and heads on inside.
