After leaving my job at the Eaton Centre I cannot tell you how happy I am now not to be spending my days at the epicentre of consumerism and tourism. My favourite part of working retail has always been customer interaction, striking up random convos with interesting people, and giving women a shot of self-confidence. Unfortunately that was not usually present at the ol’ Eaton Centre and I was most often met with rude stares, people wearing earbuds, and the common cut-off “just looking!”.
Most of all I won’t miss the rampant consumerism and the constant pressure to buy buy buy and keep up with what everyone is wearing. No, you don’t need the $60 Aldo shoes or the $200 Kate Spade purse. Nor do you need $50 of Forever 21 clearance items. The endless amount of waste produced at the mall every day was staggering and I knew it because I took out the garbage every night. Bags of waste, unused packaging, even unused product that was thrown out without care to go to some landfill.
Yes the mall is fun and I’m not going to pretend like I’ve never enjoyed a day of shopping or browsing the sales. What I am asking is for everyone to consider wants vs. needs and the impact of consumerism on our ecology and the global effects of fast fashion.
The sun was out and shining yet you were still in bed, cuddling and snuggling with a stuffed duck. You checked the clock to see the time, 11:30 am.
"Oh sh*t!“ You scrambled out of bed and into the bathroom. You brushed your teeth and washed your face like a mad person, then you ran back into your room to get changed. You changed into a white t shirt and jeans then slipped on socks. You checked the time once again, WOW high score, all that done in 10 minutes. You grabbed your makeup bag, phone, and went to wear your shoes then out you went.
10 minutes later-
You were waiting for your order at Starbucks. Finally 5 minutes passed and you got you order, 2 different drinks. You checked you phone, it was 11:56, only 4 minutes to get to the studio. You went to the next building and started running up the stairs luckily it was only on the 2nd floor, so you could get there on time. You promised you’d meet the Dongwook at noon in his studio, yesterday.
“Hey oppa!!!” You yelled out to the bodies in the room.
"Oh Y/N I didn’t know you were going to come today!“ Zico waved at you. Zico was always the energetic one, always happy to see you.
"Oh you guys are—ugh I’m out of breath,” You were inhaling and exhaling deeply. Penomeco came over to you and grabbed the drinks, Great, you thought, think about food over your g/b/f who’s soul nearly left their body. You went went over and sat down on his seat.
"Why are you sitting on my seat?“ Penomeco exclaimed after picking up his drink. You walked near and started to poke you all over, making you jump around.
"Y/n…you only got Peno a drink? Why about us?” Zico walked into your conversation. Before you can tell him the reason, Zico had interrupted,“ oh right you two are an item, of course.”
"Ya stop flirting in front of us, geez” Crush said, sadly he recently broke up with his S/O, it breaks his heart seeing someone talk about love.
"Aww. I’m so jealous, I wish I had a girlfriend who’d have the consideration to buy me a drink!“ Millic said, he can over to you and started patting your head,” You should break up with Peno and be with me. I have more time then him.“
"Ya don’t touch her like that!” Peno slaps Millic’s hand.
"Ohhh~~ someone’s jealous,“ Dean yelled out clapping his hands, looking like a seal.(sorry Dean, love you!)
"Millic don’t play with that boys heart, isn’t this his first relationship? he’s still a rookie.” Crush crying-ly laughed. How does he say that type of thing when he’s heartbroken. What am I going to do with these guys, you thought, but you kept quiet the whole time.
"Probably a rookie in….you know what too!“ Zico cried out at his comment. It made you choke just hearing it. The other three started laughing too. You turned around to see Dongwook covering his face in embarrassment.
"Shut up guys!” Peno yelled out at the boys.
"Oh maybe he is since he’s telling us to be quiet,“ Millic laughed like a hyena.
"I can’t believe you guys, I’m going—” For the second time you got interrupted by Zico.
Least don’t go anywhere stay with us. He came over and gave you a tight hug,“ I haven’t seen you in like years."
"Okay Zico—-, you saw her two days ago and second, hand off y/n,” Dongwook ripped Zico off of you.
Dongwook grabbed you hand and dragged you to the door, and turned back at the boys, “ Don’t follow us, we have a date today. I don’t think I didn’t notice you guys stalking us last week.”
Note: I haven’t wrote anything in the longest time.
Spell Request: Shoes! I walk an average of 2 hours a day just getting to class...
I unfortunately already turned down a request in the past for shoes (Converse specifically) because they’re not something you carry on you, they’re something you wear all day and become a mindless part of you (like underwear). If you’re walking to class, I’m sure there’s plenty of items in you backpack you can request a spell for if I haven’t already done it! (check the #Spell Requests tag)
Hi! Im super in love with your vampire fairy au and i really wanted to make some fanart so i just wanted to ask what the boys would wear or what their wardrobe would consist of? Ilysm!! 💖
Ah first off, thank you for loving my writing! I really love to hear that people actually enjoy the silly ideas i come up with and it really makes me want to write more haha~~
Taehyung’s wardrobe in this AU is very much based on the fact that he is a very active fairy. He’s constantly on the run either playing pranks on Yoongi or playing tag with other fairies. His clothing is almost always loose fitting and doesn’t restrict him from jumping and climbing and doing all sorts of movement. Of course his tops especially are kind of on the bigger side since he has to cut the back of them to allow his wings through. Basically his entire closet is just soft and bright and he almost never wears shoes (unless Yoongi forces him into wearing sandals to protect his feet.)
Yoongi’s style is super simple. He’s a vampire that has live for 600+ years and doesn’t give a shit about anything that isn’t blood and his fairy. He’s not one to really give a shit how he looks, even if he does make request trips into the city. He for sure favors the more “grunge” style but aside from that anything is fine tbh. The only thing that really matters is ONE OF HIS hooded cardigans and he’s happy.
- the floor phil caught the bug on is the floor in dan’s room. phil claims it was his room but newsflash: they share a room
“what if the bug ran into dan’s room”
im not even kidding I had someone try and argue this on twitter. but are you honestly trying to tell me that a centipede managed to make it’s way out of phil’s room, up a staircase, and into dan’s room without phil catching it? no matter how bad phil may be at catching bugs, I’m sure he would have caught it by then
“how do we know that’s dan’s floor”
well, the floor in phil’s room is white, and no, that’s not a rug. plus, the floor in lounge/office is a different color. while yes, dan’s mirror pics were most likely taken in his room, that’s when there was a lot of natural light, meaning it was during the day. dan stated that the lights in his room were different from every other one in the house, they give off a yellow/orangish glow. that is what makes his floor appear this color, and his room is the ONLY one in the apartment like that.
- phil’s shoes on dan’s shoe rack
“but what if he just left them in there”
‘yeah because I store my shoes in my friends room and enjoy having to go upstairs every time I want to wear them.’ it’s simply illogical
- phil’s mirror in dan’s room
“but what if he just gave dan his mirror”
for no reason? show me the new and better mirror phil got in his room, or any mirror at all, wait, there isnt one
- phils room is a closet
“but we havent seen all of it”
not technically, but, we’ve seen enough to be able to accurately estimate the size of it, which just so happens to be 1/10th the size of dans room. there’s no way that phil would have the tiniest room, while dan has the huge master bedroom
id also like to add that this is obviously why we havent gotten a single sleepless night video from the new apartment. because if phil did, he would’t be able to do anything except lay in bed, or else he’d expose them
I love a comically anachronistic character design as much as the next guy, but it hardly seems fair that American characters so rarely get saddled with them, and when they do, it’s always something relatively recent - like, Victorian or Old West at the absolute oldest.
So anyway, here’s my idea for a new Overwatch character:
His name is Fortitude Johnson
Wears a pilgrim hat and buckled shoes; primary weapon is a bunderbuss
Standard movement speed, high health, no shields or armour
Active special abilities all involve quick-drawing the impractically large, leatherbound King James Bible he wears in a satchel on his hip and reading a selected passage - in a thick New England accent - to inflict various AoE debuffs
Ultimate is giving a thunderous sermon about the End of Days, which inflicts damage over time in a large radius around him and ignores line of sight; he’s invincible while sermonising, but the rate of damage is relatively slow, so it’s avoidable simply by getting the hell away from him (unless he’s managed to corner a captive audience, of course)
Shout out to my fellow petite trans brothers out here
To the trans guys who are so thin their binder will NEVER work to sculpt “pecs” for them.
To the trans guys who go to try on XS clothing sizes and still end up never having clothes that fit snugly enough.
To trans guys who have to custom order men’s jeans because they rarely carry a size small enough for them, or to trans guys who just wear “women’s” jeans since it’s easier.
To trans guys who can eat all the “right” foods and do all of the specific exercises and still just… don’t ever beef up in the right ways because it’s not what their body is willing to do.
To trans guys who are so small that even other afab people laugh when comparing the size of their hands or their shoe size to yours.
To trans guys that have height dysphoria worse than anything else sometimes.
To trans guys who know they’ll still be small/short even after starting T, and just have to learn how to cope with it.
To trans guys with a metabolism too high to be anything other than skinny.
To trans guys who don’t want to have the image of a soft, skinny, “smol” trans boy but always end up lumped in that category anyways.
To trans guys who get called ‘adorable’ in anything short of a leather jacket with bloodied knuckles.
To trans guys who do fit a softer stereotypical image and don’t mind that! Who embrace flower crowns and pastel sweaters and feel like they’re trans the “wrong” way!
To trans guys who can wear all the passing-guidebook clothing, change their gait, and deepen their voices and still get misgendered.
You’re all awesome and even other trans guys sleep on y’all but you’re just as much of a man as the 6′0″ well muscled guys you always see people praising. You’re going to find a way to feel comfortable with your presentation some day, I promise. Whether that means starting HRT, getting surgeries, learning to self love, or a mix of any of these! You’re going to be happy with yourself some day, even if it takes a little bit of work. Hang in there.
Darkness Manipulation, Tactical Analysis, and one hella smooth voice.
Better late than never! Introducing Jumin, the team’s financial support and dark magic guy. His powers come from that little purple cloak (or so he claims, but he probably just wears it to look cool)! He can manipulate shadows easily, making him a formidable enemy at night, and has extensive knowledge over all sorts of malicious and deadly spells. He also has a cat, because no proper wizard is ever without one, right?
Also, bread shoes is an inside joke between me and @omelette-douche-fromage. I grew so frustrated drawing his loafers that I screamed “i hate bread shoes” right at her face hahah rip me. She laughed so hard I think she almost died.
