what is happening on this blog right now

Helloooo, recently I hit another milestone, what? why? how? you all are so amazing! as a thank you, I’ve decided to lettering and blog compliments!!

To be completely honest I was only going to do lettering, but right now there’s so much negativity in my blog, and in the world, that’s why I decided to add compliments, to tell all of you what amazing blogs you have! and if I’ve talked to you, how amazing you are!:)

Please have mercy, I’m not a professional:)

If this doesn’t get at least 10 notes let’s pretend it never happened.

I’ll be tagging this as #procrastudiinsbc so please feel free to blacklist it!

This blog is for stories about fathers and daughters.

I don’t mind daddy kinks at all. I don’t care if you have one. I support you and your right to have it. You do you. Theres not a damn thing wrong with it and I’ll be the first to defend you on that.

But this is not a blog for that. My writing is not about that. Since it’s happened a few times I feel the need to address it. Now this is a public site and I know I can’t tell anyone what to do, so I’m asking politely then I’m going to leave it alone and hope for the best.

Please don’t add daddy kink stuff to my posts. Please don’t turn my father/daughter stuff into something sexual. Please don’t use my posts for sexual fantasies with daddy kinks, there are ones out there for you. Mine are not it. Please don’t use my posts for daddy kinks.

nelligans replied to your post: They’re breaking the Larries up, slow and steady. 

i think we’re breaking each other lmao

Yup, but they’re creating circumstances for that. Harry and Louis are publicly at very different levels right now. The media and ‘them’ are creating that difference. It is bothering literally everyone and people are coping in different ways but also lashing out. Go to Niall/Liam/Ziam/Zayn blogs and everyone is lashing out too. They’re fragmenting this fandom little by little. ANd Larries have proved to be the strongest when it comes to influence and fan projects. The easiest way to break them is to separate Louis and Harry’s images so much that it becomes difficult to disregard. That’s what is happening.

I don’t think people understand how utterly terrifying it is to have repressed memories & to have so many missing chunks of your childhood….. like .. literally, it is so awful?? To literally know that these Bad Things have happened to you but being unable to know what they are and who did them etc… especially people w/ out childhood trauma or ptsd. It is so so horrible that I don’t even know that I can explain it right now. I just wish it was more widely talked about past our little group of Tumblr trauma blogs yanno?
I just want people to know that repressed memories aren’t “fake” like you don’t just randomly make things up and then call them recovered memories??? It’s very real, and it’s so unbearably re-traumatizing to get these memories back, even small ones. And to miss parts of your life is absolutely terrible, and you don’t have any control over when you’re gonna get memories back. There’s no way to just… conjure up the memories !! You have to wait. And wait. Until a moment in your day when you’re thinking about your mom and the way she used to dress, and about a question your therapist asked you yesterday about clothing and then suddenly you see your mom and you in a room and she is hurting you. And you fall to the floor or you stop or you cry or you dissociate or you just . You just feel everything. Or nothing. But it’s back and it’s real and it’s absolutely awful because that one memory, you know, is so tiny in comparison to all the things you don’t remember, and you know how fucking much getting the rest of them back is going to hurt bc this small sliver of trauma sent you falling to the floor in tears.

It’s absolutely terrible and it hurts me every single day and I just feel like it isn’t talked about enough, people who don’t have experience with it don’t understand how horrible it is, don’t understand that it’s not just some silly little, “omg yeah I can’t remember when I was a small infant and my mom took me to the zoo!!” Like. No. I can’t remember anything from years and years of my childhood. And it’s scary. And people need to recognize it as such

Are you overcomplicating astral travel?

Here’s the thing: By far the most common question I get from people is “how do I astral?” Which is, well, a big question. It begs other questions, like:

>Why do you want to travel

>WHERE do you want to travel

>Do you have jobs you need to do over there or are you gonna hang out

etc etc

But here’s the thing: Often people decide to travel, and then they get stuck. They try a method they maybe heard about once, and it doesn’t work, so maybe they research another method. Maybe they pick up a book on the topic, maybe the book tells them “you’ll know you’re astral traveling when you can rise out of your body and see it on your bed.”

BOOM. Imma stop you for a minute.

There it is. This is the moment the Gold Standard™ for the new person gets set in stone. The mind now says “If I’m not hovering above my body with full range of vision, I’m not Traveling, with a capital T.”

So now we have this goal. The person may feel a little more confident because there is a road map in front of them, and that map may have steps, often detailed by a book author, or maybe even a blogger here on tumblr. Maybe the person tries the steps, and fails. Maybe it takes months. Maybe it takes years, but eventually, maybe the person gets frustrated, and they give up.

“I just can’t travel”, they say, truly discouraged, or “I’m just not meant for this, if I was, I would have been hovering outside my body by now.” They maybe pack up the books and leave it be.

Perhaps you see people on tumblr or blogs that talk about full blown OBE or extreme situations, and then you internalize THEIR gold standard, and then you fail to achieve the standard. Same situation applies.

Imma stop you right here. What happened?

  1. Person decided they wanted to travel
  2. Person researched or was told what “authentic” travel looks like
  3. Person attempted to reach the “authentic” standard
  4. Person failed, and then
  5. Assumed they were not meant to travel, due to their failure to reach “Authentic Travel”.

BUT

Here’s the secret, my bros:

1. There is no one form of “authentic” astral travel. You will find this is an epidemic with older books on the astral, when astral “travel” or astral living was equated on a wide scale with your classic OBE, or Out Of Body Experience. So in reality, what many people are trying to achieve, when they want to travel, is an OBE. Based on what books/people tell them. But that is FAR from the only way to astral–in my case, for example, I’ve never achieved full OBE–and not for lack of years of trying. (Because I thought that was How One Astral Traveled)

1-A. THERE ARE MANY FORMS OF ASTRALING BESIDES “TRAVEL”. I don’t travel because I lead an astral double-life–I “tune in”. An OBE is wrong for my circumstances, and if I would have learned that sooner, it would have helped me a lot. There are people that astral-trip only in dreams! People that astral-trip only while DAYDREAMING! People that mentally trip but never leave awareness of their body, people who can’t “see” anything there but hear everything perfectly, people who can only see the astral in black and white, people without a “form” or a body, people with only a bizarre pinprick field of vision! HONESTLY IT’S ENDLESS. Learn your style!

2. Because there is no one form of “authentic” astraling–there is no ONE WAY to achieve the travel! If you fail at going OBE, there may be a perfectly good reason you aren’t suited to that route! The failure here also lies on authors and books that imply there IS one way of authentic travel, and therefore, the user is set up for a failure situation a lot of the time. (And for example, OBE LEAVES your body open for attack or walk-ins in a lot of cases–did you ever think this was your natural energy defense system preventing you from leaving yourself a shell?)

3. Your way of travel is probably NOT going to match someone else’s, so you absolutely need to drop the gold standard now. I am NOT telling you to give up on discernment, because that will keep you alive when you reach the astral. I am telling you that if you have lofty expectations of what the astral is going to be like for you based on someone you’ve read (including me!) you need to drop it before you go, because it’s likely to fuck you up. I have listened to hundreds of different astral experiences, and I co-run the astral atlas–it’s all remarkably different for each individual based on your needs and jobs.

4. Your ideas of the astral are probably going to get blown out of the water when you get there anyway. Know this. Expect it. It will constantly surprise you and remind you that this isn’t In Your Head, and in doing so it will shatter your ideas of what it is, over and over again. 

5. Stop complicating things. If I had a nickel for every time person that came to me and asked why they can’t astral, and I gave them the idea of “Well, did you try opening a door?” and then the look of revelation descended, I’d be rich. This is not a blame on you, because I don’t blame you for this over-complication thing. We’re humans, we like to complicate everything, it makes us happy and whatnot. It makes me almost tremendously happy to shroud things in pomp and circumstance. But seriously–have you tried opening a door? Like. Visualize a door, and then open it, and then walk through. That’s how I first got to the astral.

After weeks of trying and doing all this complex shit, eventually I was told to visualize a door, and walk through. And then I was fucking there.

(Can you imagine how pissed I was, though. Like wtf I WAS TOLD MY ENTRANCE WAS TO BE GRANDIOSE AND MAGNIFICENT, not a fucking shitty wooden-ass door with nobody around to see me. Harumph, I said. I ended up in an empty field in fuck-all nowhere, if you wanted to know.)

I’m not saying it’s always easy to get to the astral. It has ways of keeping you out (or in) inside mental spaces or white rooms until you’re ready to be out on your own. This is where discernment and patience come in. But I AM saying if you find yourself failing over and over again at this thing, ask: Is it because you have an unconscious Gold Standard? Analyze why. And then, let it go. Because it’s not going to help you, it’s just going to make you anxious and perpetuate the failure cycle, trust me. And then ask: Am I overcomplicating my approach/expectations because of my gold standard? Analyze that, let it go.

Then, try an amazingly simple thing like opening a door, and stop cutting yourself off at the pass, and just let it happen.

You might be surprised at the results.

(This post is aimed at people who a) WANT to astral and b) have a hard time doing so for unknown reasons. It is not suggesting everyone should astral if they don’t want to or have no interest, if that wasn’t self-evident.)

Hey Tim, what happened to getsecondlunch? Is this your new site now? I hope I've got the right Tim. If so, I'll keep checking this site! Thanks!

Hello! 

Yes, right Tim! 

Second Lunch was much more of a written / blogging type of creative project for me and towards the end I just burned out on the whole illustrated essay stuff. And writing is just super difficult for me anway. But drawing is so much more intuitive and is the thing that brought me the most enjoyment on SL. So I took a long creative break and then started up Blazers at Dawn.

Thanks for following me over to my new thing.

Here’s a throwback Second Lunch piece for ya.

My Aphobia/Stalker Story

@sini-sterility @iicraft505 (not sure if you want it, but still) @alittlebluebug @autisticbadger @everchangingfangirl @fuckyeahasexual @justaphobethings (I don’t know if a blog like this would want this, but still) @acecourse (some aphobe I knew of.)

I don’t know if I’m ace or not. I’m questioning a lot right now… but you know what happened when my ex-friend found out I lacked interest and even had an aversion to sex? No? I’ll tell ya! In short, she tried to force herself and others on me sexually and romantically, while we were at a disabled camp (I was 15 and quadriplegic she was 19 with diabetes) and then got obsessed with me. Then at the end of the friendship, she tried to force me into a sexual relationship with her ex-boyfriend, How’d she do that, you ask? Well… she lied about me saying I was able-bodied and even athletic in order to get him obsessed with me (which worked) and gave him my Facebook name and phone number and told him to basically harass me! Then when he found out the truth, his obsession got even worse! He openly talks about all kinds of shit now, everything from feeding me with a bottle and taking care of me, to cutting me open and replacing muscles and bones with sticks. Not only that, but he still does to this day, with her encouragement! You know what makes it even worse? Not only did I have to call the police on this motherfucker and the girl that started this, (which didn’t work out) but it turns out that I’m not the only one that’s been abused by them! In fact, they both have criminal records for abuse and harassment.  But it’s only one guy right?  Nope. She has given my number to several other men. At least 2 of which are also sexual predators with records; each of which older than the last! The others I’m not sure of, but they still harass me very often. Even 4 years later, this is still going on! She still constantly gives men my contact information (Mainly my number, and every once in a while, my Facebook.) Why? All because I didn’t have any interest in anything sexual. She also did this knowing I was sexually abused several times throughout my childhood. ( I forgot to mention that before, but it’s an important detail.) I’ve even had 1 or 2 of them threaten to do it the same way. So if you wanna tell me aphobia doesn’t exist, fuck you! You are not just ignorant, but you’re fucking stupid, and don’t come on to my post with that bullshit!

anonymous asked:

Friendly reminder to all the people screaming murder and riot to Yana in case the spoilers are true: pls have so much dignity as to leave her Twitter/Tumblr alone. It's her story and they are her characters. You are not entitled to demand for her to apologise or change the story in any way comfortable to you. Thank you very much & carry on. (Not aimed at you thedarkestcrow but you got such a wide presence that I thought most might see this through your blog)

YES, THIS! 

Thanks Anon for bringing up that topic.

This is very important and I second that! We’ve only seen one picture of the next chapter for now and nothing is certain yet. But if what we fear is true it’s part of the story. And whether we like it or not it doesn’t give us the right to send any inappropriate messages or hate to the creator of the story. Yana and her team are working very hard on it and she has proven many times that she’s putting much thought into her work. So whatever happens in this chapter (or in the future), sending rude words to Yana and/or her team is never acceptable. Everyone is free to like or dislike how the story progresses but there’s no need to harass the creators about it.

By the way, that also applies to how we all interact with each other as a fandom. ;)

But I trust in my followers not to do something like that. :)

My Witchy “Planner”

One of the most important tools that I use in my Craft is my witchy “planner.” It isn’t actually a planner, but it incorporates elements of both journals, bullet journals, and planners. Today I wanted to share my “planner” with you and show you how I use it for everyday witchiness!

I use a mini-three ring binder I bought from Target. I have it divided into a couple sections. On the front of my binder I glued a Project Life card to create a small pocket where I can slip in notes or the list of current journaling prompts I may be doing for easy access.

Inside my binder I have a one-page almanac for the year that tells me the dates of the dark moon, the full moon and the sabbats.

In the beginning I have a lot of basic pages. Not all of these pages are meant for everyday use. This is more a general collection of my goals and reminders. Some of the things I have in there right now are:

- Daily Witch Practices
- Some Favorite Inspirational Quotes
- What is G.R.O.W? (For when I am reading spiritual books or studying witchcraft)
- A Book Blessing
- Witchy Projects (This changes monthly; I write down small milestones for each project to complete each month)
- Witchy Blog posts I want to write

⛤ Section One: My “Gratitude Journal.” This is where I write a short blurb about what happened that day and one thing I was grateful for. I also take note of my energy level, the moon phase and how much I slept. This helps me keep track of my moods.

⛤ Section Two: Calendar. Here I make a note of all the astrological happenings of the month, such as dark moon, full moon, sabbats, retrogrades, the moon changing signs, eclipses and meteor showers. I also keep a “notes” section where I jot down a variety of notes to myself about tools and ingredients I need to buy and mundane things like doctor’s appointments.

⛤ Section Three: Sabbat and Esbat section. Here is where I record my thoughts and feelings during a holiday, or recipes that I will use. At the beginning of the month I make a short goal for celebrating Sabbats and Esbats (because I’m terrible at planning full rituals).

⛤ Section Four: Spell/Ritual reflections. I don’t find much time to cast spells or make charms, or even rituals, so there isn’t much in this section. How ever I do include WIP spells I’m writing.

This next one isn’t actually a section, but is actually just a plastic pocket insert and a handful of pages. This section is what I call a “self-care” section. I have lists of things that make me happy, inspirational pictures, recipes for special baths or lotions, and a variety of things that are meant to help me when my anxiety/depression kicks in.

⛤ Section Five: Personal reflections. Every week I sit down with my “Gratitude Journal” entries for the week and I evaluate how my week went, how I felt, etc. It’s kind of like doing my own therapy. This section also includes any epiphanies, rants or reverence moments I have.

Section Six: Meditation and Exercises. Self explanatory. I write about my experiences and any thoughts I have.

Section Seven: Witchy StudyI have a list of topics to research and my notes in this section. Most of what is in this section is meant to be moved over to my grimoire at a later date.

**UPDATE** I’ve added this video showing you the inside of my Planner! I’m currently in the middle of reorganizing for December so it’s a bit messy, but here you go!

The Six Thatchers blog post from season 2 was fake, a murder mystery John wrote for Sherlock as a Christmas present. If you read it you’ll see Sherlock literally asked a mall Santa for a murder for Christmas. Because one didn’t happen, John created one as a gift. ***Oh my god, my heart hurts so much right now*** In the story the murder victim was dating a man but loved from afar by a woman. Keep in mind this was written while Irene was in the picture. Write what you know, eh John? Such a good storyteller. He even had himself do most of the work, mentioning how brilliant Sherlock was during the whole thing, barely lifting a finger. What a beautiful Christmas present. THAT’S WHY SHERLOCK WAS READING THAT POST AT CHRISTMAS IN A SCANDAL IN BELGRAVIA. It was John’s present to him. It’s the post that had the counter stuck on “1895”.

The Six Thatchers episode follows the concept of The Geek Interpreter – stories miraculously coming to life. John’s Christmas story came to life – this is why Sherlock is so bent on premonition, fate, and Death in Samarra. The Lying Detective will be more of this. ***No characters in Sherlock in episode 11 go “Hmm, smashing thatcher busts? That happened already.” because it wasn’t a case. It was a story.***

Can you believe John loved Sherlock so much as to create that for him? My heart is hurting. I welcome death.

gamerlegend09  asked:

I don't know if this has been asked yet, but Where does all the Error originate from? Is it like some sort of contagious disease that a Character from Undertale in any AU can catch?

Well, the very first instance of an error-like character was Error!Sans himself, created by @loverofpiggies. And a while back his story began to be explored on her @askerrorsans blog. As the story progressed we learned more about how error-like characters (or just errors, not to be confused with the grumpmuffin Error himself) typically functioned, or happened. I don’t really have the time right now to do all the research to be able to answer this question for you (like, I know the info in my head but it’s hard to put into words) but if you do a little research on both of CQ’s blogs you can see what she’s confirmed/answered about what causes characters to ‘error’ out.

WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID I know that CQ has mentioned before in the past about expanding on Errors (as it’s own separate thing) independent of the UT fandom, which I’m super jazzed about! And if that’s the case, there’s bound to be a lot more awesome things for us to learn about Errors as their own beings/race as time goes on <3

Your timeline seems.. off, John Watson

No idea whether this has been discussed already, but as I was rewatching this scene I became curious to what John was actually *not* writing here. 

“I’m going to be a Dad”

Grammar: You use ‘be going to’ when you’re sure something is going to happen in the future. 

“The baby runs all of our lives. If I’m not changing nappies, I’m buying nappies.”

Grammar: You use the present continuous (be + present participle) to describe actions that are happening right now or to describe temporary situations. 

So tell me, John Hamish Watson, are you GOING to be a dad or ARE you a dad? Or… are you making up yet another story?

HOW HAVE YOU ALL BEEN I HOPE YOU ARE ALL DOING WELL DO U REMEMBER ME I LIKE DOGS A LOT

Anyway yes hello, just wanted to update you all on my situation and what’s happening with this blog etc. I’ve barely been online at all since you last saw me, I still watch Mark daily and I still checked twitter/instagram but I have purposely NOT posted much because I needed to take myself away from distraction for a bit, ya feel?

I am still pursuing my dreams, i’ve been doing a lot lately with a lot of set-backs but overall I’m happy with how I’m going right now.

Along with this, my depression and anxiety have been very steadily improving and my medicinal doses are being decreased!! I’ve had a few bad spells but I feel like I’m slowly but surely becoming the happy positive person I once was and that means more to me than anything!

NOW WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THIS BLOG?

I want to get it back up and running, I want it to be a regular thing again and I want to get back in the groove of things now that I feel comfortable with doing so. TRUTH IS THO RIGHT i was meant to get my blog back up and running a couple weeks ago but literally the day I was planning on making gifs, I had some bad news regarding something personal and it had to wait for a while longer.

But for real, I’m ready to come back and get the content back up and rolling again. I’m so sorry for keeping you guys in the dark about where i’ve been/what i’ve been doing but I hope you understand!

I want to upload some gifs tonight bc heck I need to catch up a lil lmao
