well just because someone else is

so I’m leaving tomorrow and I won’t be back for a week, and I don’t really have anyone to take care of my cat, so I decided that I’d leave him in my backyard and have someone feed him every morning. i’m literally sitting here crying my eyes out because I miss him ): this will be his first night outside too. two weeks ago I let one of my cats outside because he got aggressive, and when I went out to get him he was gone, so it just doesn’t sit well with me that I might come back and he’ll be gone. and with everything else going on it just feels like everything and everyone I care about is slowly leaving me, and it’s really scary. i should be really happy that I get to see BTS in three days, but instead I’m sitting here in tears. i’m not typing this to ask for advice, it took a lot of thinking to come to his decision, I just want to let it out because I don’t really have anyone to talk to….

anonymous asked:

a question about emoji spells... people always put "like to charge, reblog to cast" and i was just curious, if someone likes it but doesn't reblog (cast) it, does that charge it for everyone else who casts it? does that make a spell with more notes (or more likes at least) more powerful because it's been charged so many times?

that has been my interpretation as well, but since emoji spells are still a new thing, i wonder, does anyone else have other opinions as to how that would work?

Your speculation always sounds so dead on. I hope you’re right. Good point about Veronica. She deserves someone who adores her unequivocally for who she is.  V shouldn’t be a second choice. As I’ve said, Archie has a long way to go before he’s worthy of her affection.

Thanks!!! I just watch too much TV, is all (and could be wrong, but in general, things are usually pretty obvious)

Which is why Archie would do well to spend some time ALONE and figure out what he wants,,,,because the question also is, does he even want BETTY for Betty or just because she got over him, moved on and loves someone else, now? And he can’t handle not being the primary focus of either of his “best friends”?

Conversely, Betty does seem legit pleased about being with Juggie and was able to recognize her childish infatuation for what it was….but that isn’t sloppy seconds, it’s moving on. I’m not sure Archie’s adult enough to do so. Probably because he’s always interested in someone for fairly juvenile reasons, anyway!

Okay first: I’m not making this post as a black paladin thought (though if they don’t find Shiro within the first three episodes, black paladin Allura all the way), so much as just a thought I have and I can’t decide if it’s on purpose or just questionable narrative, though I lean towards the former:

The part I find weirdest about Shiro being all “Keith has great potential to lead” is that … Shiro literally never asks Keith to do things requiring leadership in the show? He’s always asking Keith to use his instincts to pilot through dangerous things (the asteroids, I believe there’s a moment in season 2 as well) and sword fight (or trusting him to anyway) or to team up with someone else to use their skills together because they complement each other’s talents (Lance and Hunk). But like. He’s never even put Keith in charge of a smaller team once or asked him to come up with strategies. So not only is the audience not being shown that Keith desires or has any more leadership potential than the other paladins, Shiro himself has never indicated he is trying to groom/mentor Keith as a potential leader in show outside of the two scenes where he suddenly drops the idea onto Keith, once when he himself is injured and once when Keith is intense emotional turmoil.

Which kind of leads to my question I’m intrigued to see season 3 answer: is this just kind of sloppy narrative writing, or what I think is more likely and interesting to explore: is Shiro’s love of Keith and confidence that he knows what’s best for everyone blinding him to what he knows Keith’s and the other paladin’s talents and skills are, as well as to what the paladins themselves would want (because the thing is Lance will be upset Keith is leader, but Keith also clearly thinks Keith being the leader is a bad idea. No one wants this)? Because I think having Shiro’s flaws be an overarching arc would be really interesting (I am of the opinion Shiro will probably be back by mid season at the latest, granted).

Another humans are weird space orcs idea because I really like thinking about it. What if aliens have no idea how to hide their emotions? Like, they suck at poker because they can never keep a straight face or anything. or, on a darker note, their ship is hijacked and they can’t keep the fear out of their faces, but all the humans look cold and emotionless to them. Other aliens hating having to bargain with humans becase we can bluff and keep our emotions in check so well, but when they get frustrated it’s all over. Pirates threaten the space ship and they send the human to do negotiations, and the pirate talking is super confused because no matter what threat he makes, the human just doesn’t seem to be fazed one bit.


Someone please, feel free to add to this, I love to see what else people come up with!

@space-australians

I think one curious little thing is that we, at first sight, never get shown Viktor’s expression in this moment when Yuuri suddenly pushes him way, leaving many wondering how he actually responded to it

HOWEVER

they did add his reflection in Yuuri’s eyes and it makes me cry because he’s SO CONFUSED AND HURT BY THE SUDDEN REJECTION

it just ties in so well with Viktor’s fear of rejection (I wrote about it here) where he desires emotional and physical closeness but fears being pushed away at the same time AND I JUST

PROTECT THIS MAN AND HIS SOFT HEART AT ALL COST

HE DESERVES ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD HE’S SO PURE

I’m so in love with the thought of Viktor guarding the depth of his heart and at the same time he wants nothing else but to have someone take care of it for him with all the love and care they can muster so he can give them all his love in return 

it just makes me remember this line 

I think Viktor’s heart is just as fragile as Yuuri’s but in a completely different way, instead fueled by Viktor’s loneliness and longing for someone to stay close to that would never leave him

I’M SO GLAD YUURI WAS ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF VIKTOR JUST AS MUCH AS VIKTOR CARED FOR YUURI AND THAT THEY BOTH FOUND LOVE AND HAPPINESS WITH EACH OTHER IN THE END 

I know that Ethan’s not gonna hit a milestone for a lil while but I’ve been thinking about a plan to hold a meetup because I’ve seen it be done for Jack (like fofparty or bossweek) and it would be so cool to make it happen.

Not saying that I am super qualified to do it, (I might as well hand this idea over to someone else) But I’m just having a thought where it’s a simple hangout for celebrating Ethan hitting 300k using a tag since that’s how it is usually done. Posting stuff under it and just getting to know people, you know?

Idk if it would even go well when the time actually comes but I want to make it a possibility. I also maybe should message people about this who might be interested in helping me out.

So if you guys have any input on this at all please let me know cause I’m making a lot of considerations for it when he actually gets close to 300k :D

And if this just gets buried then honestly I’ll still go with it anyways, who knows this is just the basis for the idea.

Thanks for reading this mess regardless though! (if it even makes sense haha sorry i can’t word that well sometimes..)

It’s not about hating Sidney Crosby. It’s about hating the NHL’s bias toward him and other big named players like him. It’s about the danger that comes along with protecting the NHL’s golden boys. In the eyes of the Refs, players like him can’t do any wrong, and because of that, players like Methot get seriously injured. This isn’t necessarily Sid’s fault. He didn’t ask the NHL to protect him unnecessarily, but he needs to be held accountable for his shitty actions. He got away with two dangerous moves, two games in a row.

If you think that it’s okay for someone to take part of someone else’s finger off with no repercussions, just because “Well, he’s just really good at hockey,” then you’re part of the problem.

pisceans have a high emotional intelligence, usually, they can conjure an unspeakable charm that reduces any need for manipulation

Pisceans without this component can become martyrs and I think this is where the emotional dependency stems from, the cry of the helpless victim, who legitimately believes they need to be saved, but they can never be saved by anyone else because their power extends above and beyond any sign, and the deepest part of themselves knows this very well. it knows that they don’t need to be saved, they are being closely watched, they have the duty on toward others. pisces signed a tough contract coming to earth. it was never going to be easy for them. they must transmute all personal desire to collective needs. i think they can just become so lost and delirious and confused and like they are drowning they will resort to hysterical extremes so that someone will pull them to the surface

“Well, you are not going to believe this. Probably, like, you won’t even understand. I gave her the recording of me hopping. I know that, like, ruins it because now someone else has listened to it, but somehow I don’t mind if Maureen hears it. I think, maybe even I like that. I hope she comes back soon.“

i hadn’t intended anything for valentine’s day specifically, i’ve just been meaning to do some art of michelle and maureen for a while. these two are just so sweet ;___; ❤︎

but hey, i’ll just roll with it. happy valentine’s to these galentine’s, and to everyone else today!

Sometimes I pause and suddenly remember a time where my day was brighter because I had a funny, interesting or genuinely sweet interaction with a stranger, and I start to wonder how they’re doing and if they’re happy.
I just thought u guys should know that you might have been that funny, interesting, or genuine person for someone else too, and I guarantee that they’ll look back upon that interaction at least once in their life and will hope you’re doing well. Don’t ever think your life isn’t important, cause you might’ve been important to a stranger without even knowing it.

miss-azura  asked:

i don't know whether i should laugh or cry because this is the 2nd time i see a dubbed comic of sasster and he still sounds like vegeta, despite having being dubbed by someone else from the first video i saw. gaster as an angry saiyan confirmed,

I definitely wasn’t waiting for an excuse to draw something like this

(heck I’m gonna roll with it since I can’t find the video of my actual headcanon Sasster voice anyway, rip)

I say to myself sometimes, Deels, you know who you are, even if nobody else does. That doesn’t matter. It’s probably just as well.
But someone knew who I was once. But it’s as if she’s vanished. And because I can’t reach her, I’ve just disappeared.
—  This punched me right in the heart. It describes loneliness so well. It’s not about being alone. Delia is surrounded by friends. But she doesn’t have anyone that really understands her. It’s heartbreaking. 

sakuraharunos  asked:

U never answered lalody's question though? What do you see in SS that you don't in SNS?

Nope, you and your other little “hinastalker” blog aren’t getting anything from me, because you’re someone who just can’t take a hint. From what I’ve seen and heard, you seem to like making posts which publically shame people. Well now I’ll do the same to you, enjoy.

Over here on your other blog, you very childishly made a list of naruhina shippers who were apparently deluded, and included me in the list. I then very publically asked you to justify my inclusion, and what did you do? You completely ignored me and everyone else who asked the same thing of you, which to be honest, was what I expected from an account such as yours.

But that wasn’t the end of it, no. You then went and left your unwanted comment on my post. I replied to you over here, and even apologised for my misunderstanding (fully knowing that you were the same person who called me deluded and then cowered away, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt). And how do you respond? You mock me for having an apparent lack of reading comprehension for acknowledging that Sasuke loves his family in Gaiden. Despite the fact that it explicitly says that their hearts are connected and that the love between them is the “real deal”, whereas you’re the one who likes to live in your headcanon where Naruto and Sasuke romantically love each other. And I’m the one who lacks reading comprehension? Okay.

So I told you upfront, that I strongly suggested you retreat back to your fandom, because someone who claims that Naruto and Sasuke romantically love each other was in absolutely no position to be insulting me for an apparent lack of reading comprehension, because unlike you, I actually acknowledge what is explicitly stated in the manga. And what did you do? You did exactly as you were told. You ran back to your fandom and you didn’t say shit, again. Why? Because you couldn’t say shit. Accusing me of lacking reading comprehension when you go around adamantly proclaiming that Naruto and Sasuke are in love with each other makes you look silly beyond belief. I gave you all the time in the world to respond to me, but you didn’t, so now you’re blocked.

So no, I’m not explaining anything to you. So you can go and bitch about me and include me in another one of your juvenile lists, while claiming that Sasuke is gay or something, since that’s what you seem to do best.

Hetalia Dodgeball
  • Italy: hides behind Germany, manages to stay in the game a while by just running away
  • Germany: one of the last men standing, takes it way too seriously and kind of scares everyone else because he throws really hard
  • Japan: stays in the game for a long time because he's good at catching balls, but he's not as good at throwing them so he doesn't help his team much
  • America: accidentally knocks someone out because he doesn't know his own strength, leaves to go help the person who got k.o'd
  • England: brags about how well he's going to do then gets hit in the face almost immediately and trudges off, cursing and muttering about how he wasn't ready and this game is stupid
  • France: decent at dodging but can't catch or throw much, stays in the game on a similar strategy to Italy but without a Germany to hide behind
  • Russia: made the case that if he hit the ball with his face hard enough that it bounced back to the other side and hit someone else, it should count as catching it--got out because the rest of the world didn't see it that way
  • China: gets out after catching a few and making a couple of good throws because he's slow to get out of the way of balls he can't catch
  • Canada: is the person America knocked out
  • Prussia: as overly invested as his brother, but louder about it, gets out when he takes a little too much time to brag about that awesome throw he just made
  • Austria: pretends to be hurt so he doesn't have to play
  • Spain: having a really good time, not the first or the last to get out and makes one really good throw, cheers on his team loudly once he's out
  • Romano: didn't want to play in the first place, got dragged there and actually really enjoyed himself for about 1 minute before getting out, at which point he goes back to grumbling and cussing about how stupid this game is and how he didn't want to be here
  • Hungary: as good at this game as Germany, better at still having fun and remembering that it's a game not a damn war

okay remember that movie where chris pratt wakes up on a spaceship and he’s 300 light years from the final destination or whatever and he wasn’t supposed to wake up that early and so he’s essentially just going to die alone on this spaceship so he initially just goes around having a blast getting hammered doing whatever the hell he wants, inasmuch as one can do whatever the hell one wants on a deserted spaceship, but he starts getting really lonely like really really really lonely and so he decides to wake someone else up to keep him company and he knows this is a really bad idea but he’s sooooooooo lonely and this person seems sooooooooooo cool so he decides to just go for it anyway and wake this person up and lie to them and say the machine malfunctioned and that’s why they woke up early, because how would this person ever know what really happened, anyway? and so initially they’re getting along really well having all kinds of fun but then the person he woke up discovers the truth and gets absolutely fucking furious and beats his ass, but THEN it turns out that the ship is falling apart and everyone’s going to die unless they can put their conflict aside and fix the ship, so they both drag themselves through hell and risk certain death in deep space zero gravity to make all the necessary repairs, but then the first person’s spacesuit malfunctions, so the person he woke up has to either just let him die or revive him via mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and this person really contemplates just letting him die but then realizes they’d be alone on this spaceship for decades and it would fucking suck, so they go for the mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, which makes them realize that they really do love this asshole after all, and then they both build their own apartment on the ship and just move there and hang out 24/7 partying in total isolation until they die… an objectively terrible movie idea but simultaneously an excellent and extremely in-character idea for a high-concept macdennis fic

What about a Corpse Bride Victuuri AU? I was thinking about the movie last night and hey! The main character is shy and nervous! Ends up engaged to someone more open and bubbly! There’s someone named Victor! The main character’s dog died!

Okay so, Yuuri is arranged to marry Yuuko, who he considers a good friend but…just really doesn’t want to marry. For maximum happy ending potential, Yuuko feels the same and is in love with someone else, but their families have arranged this marriage and neither have much say in the matter.

So Yuuri is stressed and nervous about the wedding and keeps messing up badly at the wedding rehearsal because his heart is just not in it. So he goes off into the woods to try to practice his vows because he’s disappointing his family and Yuuko and he doesn’t like this situation but there’s no getting out of it, so he might as well try not to make a complete fool of himself at the wedding, right? He goes out to the woods to practice his dancing anyway when he’s stressed out, as that’s his real passion. He feels at ease out here.

So, you’ve seen the movie, he’s practicing his vows, feeling a bit better, and to practice, he puts the wedding ring on what he thinks is an old twig sticking out of the ground, but…it was actually the skeletal hand of a young man who froze to death in these woods long ago. Yeah, it’s Victor. The Corpse Groom. He’s been stuck there for ages, ever since the lover he was planing to elope with ditched him and left him waiting at their meeting spot until he froze to death, and woke up as a corpse with a broken heart, vowing to wait until someone came along to love him and marry him properly.

And then along came Yuuri! Victor had secretly been watching him dance in the woods for some time now, as he often came near the spot where Victor’s body was, and he fell in love with the wonderful way Yuuri moves. And now, what luck! Yuuri said his vows to him and put a ring on his finger and now Victor will be free from his miserable lonely years of waiting and they’re going to get married and live happily ever after!!! So to speak.

Yeah, except Yuuri is 100% freaked out because this very cheerful dead fellow just popped out of the ground and scared him so badly he fainted, and then woke up in the land of the dead to find his apparent fiancé showed off his ring to everyone and gushing about how wonderful Yuuri is, oh look, he’s awake! Good morning, darling! I was just telling everyone how you proposed to me! It was so romantic! Are you excited about our wedding? I certainly am! Oh, why are you so pale?

And then Yuuri tries to find a way back to the land of the living, while slowly warming up to Victor, who’s a lot less terrifying when you get past the fact that he’s dead, and is actually quite charming and kind when he wants to be…but still, Yuuri has to go back, right? He can’t stay here!

Cue misadventures with Yuuri trying and failing to get back, Victor getting his feelings badly hurt because he realizes Yuuri was trying to leave him, misunderstanding and drama until Yuuri finally realizes that he’s happier with Victor than he ever was before and agrees to marry him properly. But instead of Yuuri dying to be with him, the Power of Love or whatever magic what-have-you brings Victor back to life so he can have a second chance with Yuuri in the world of the living. Yuuri learns that Yuuko was in love with someone else and is very happy that their arrange marriage won’t be happening after all, and Yuuri’s family does want him to be happy in the end and blesses the union between their son and his previously undead groom. So everything ends happily! The end!

I am so excited!!! This little book (well, 264 pages) has been about 9 months in the making, and it’s finally done. Good grief.

Basically, many of my friends at my undergrad university did Creative Writing with me, and for our final project we had to write a 6k word short story and 2k critical commentary - which, by the way, as someone who has done a Master’s since and written a 20k thesis, was just as hard as writing a standard dissertation. As a surprise to everyone, I sneakily got copies of everyone’s short stories by pretending I just wanted to read them and compare them to mine, and I made them all into an anthology, which I gave to everyone at graduation. It was a really fun project to work on, even though it took ages to proof read the entire thing and design the cover and cry over Word formatting. We called ourselves the Come Along Collective because ‘come along’ was kind of a catchphrase of ours and ‘collective’ sounded professional and artistic. Sue us, we had degrees in this shit.

In June last year, about 3 years after we graduated, we met up (a pretty big deal, seeing as one of us now lives in the US!) and decided to do another anthology. Without the immediate option of including our conveniently timed university dissertation equivalents, we agreed that it would be really fun if we all wrote a short story of between 4-15k words - this is actually why I wrote Here, the World Entire, which appears in this anthology in a slightly shorter form! Since I made that first anthology back in 2013 our friendship group has changed a little, and so one contributor to the first anthology isn’t in this one and we have a new contributor, but that’s OK; it kind of charts the progression of everyone’s experiences since university.

So, over the past 9 months or so, we all wrote a story each, and everyone put their all into their stories, despite being 23-25 now and not having the luxury of time that we used to have, and honestly, the stories are amazing. There’s not a single one in there that I wouldn’t read in a literary magazine. One person didn’t do Creative Writing and was really worried about their story not matching up to the others, but it absolutely does. I did a little cry when I read it because it was so good and the writer didn’t think it was (I think they are now aware that they are actually super talented and should definitely write more). That was one of the reasons I’m so happy to have this physical copy as proof that it’s done, and people who thought they couldn’t do it did do it, and they did it fabulously, because every single person wrote something phenomenal.

There was one person in the group who wasn’t able to write anything because they had a lot going on in their life, and so the rest of us prepared a SUPER SECRET SURPRISE, complete with a secret Facebook group chat (which was literally titled THE ONE THAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO KEEP SECRET) in which we collaborated and wrote a story for her instead so that she would still have a story in the anthology. One person wrote a section, then handed it to the next person, and so on. It turned out to be an absolutely hilarious story involving Emily Blunt as an evil sorceress, Jez and Mark from Peep Show as couriers, and our old landlord as an arch villain. It’s pretty rad, not going to lie. That person still gets their name on the cover because the story wouldn’t have been written without them; we basically tried our best to put that person’s personality into a narrative, and that’s why it’s so weird. They are weird, is what I’m saying.

This whole thing was a massive labour of love for all of us. I was literally proof reading it on lunch breaks, and taking graphic design assignments at work so that I could practice for when I made the cover (which I think looks snazzy, if endearingly off-kilter). Everyone was hugely supportive of one another, giving each other prompts and feedback whenever anyone got stuck, and it was such a fantastic experience to make it from start to finish. I’m so, so proud of the end product, and I’m excited to see what our next one will look like!

I have also prepared a super secret special surprise of my own for everyone within this anthology, which I won’t disclose here just in case any of them happen upon this post. It’s rad, though. I’m excited for everyone to see it.

This isn’t available for commercial purchase or anything like that, but it’s a personal project that’s been taking up a lot of my time lately (in a good way!) and it’ll be kind of sad not to have this to work towards. Still, onto the next thing!
