what kind of excuse is that

Portal Fanfic Testing Maintenance Contest!

When I started working on Testing Maintenance I thought I would make an art contest of some kind when it was all finished, and now that it’s done and I have an idea of what I want to do, here it is! Actually, I’ve been wanting to do a contest in general for a while and this is was a good excuse to get one off the ground, so it all works out. <3

Here are the rules!

1: It won’t just be an art contest. You can submit creative writing works or even music, just as long as it’s something you have made that’s inspired from the Testing Maintenance fanfic.

2: You do not have to be following me to enter the contest.

3: I will be shipping prizes so you will have to be comfortable with giving me an address to send them off. If you are uncomfortable with giving me your address and you win a prize we can arrange something else!

-PRIZES-

Anyone who enters will also get a surprise participation’s prize.

 If you want to win one of these you must use #TestingMaintenanceContest so that I can find your submission or directly message me your submission with the hashtag

1st Place Winner: Companion Cube Messenger Bag and a colored drawing request. (Portal Themed)

2nd Place Winner: Companion Cube Keychain and a colored drawing request. (Portal Themed)

Hi excuse me, do you or any of the other Ravenclaws on this blog have experience in skipping a grade(or grades)? If so, would you be so kind to tell me is it a good or a bad idea, how did you manage to do it and what about leaving your friends? I know this blog isn't exactly about it, but I thought this is one of the best places I could ask. Thank you~ (if you don't answer I fully understand and sorry to have bothered you ^^)

I honestly have no experience with this because it’s not really a thing in the uk, but here’s things I think you should consider

  • missing out on experiences, depends what grade you’re skipping I guess but are you okay with missing graduation, prom etc
  • being younger than everyone else, particularly when it comes to drinking, clubbing etc
  • might be easier to get scholarships? 
  • if you’re staying in the area it’s definitely possible to keep up with your old friends, it’s just a bit more effort
  • are you moving into a grade where everyone will already have established friend groups? if you’re moving into e.g. senior year it might be harder to make friends than if you’re skipping straight to uni

That 6 quads debacle *smh*, I kinda predicted this sadly. From this we can conclude he obviously thought he doesn't have the skating skills AND confidence to win over the uncles anyway to even think of that layout. What I'm not waiting for is freaking crossover fest, and ignorant people making excuses for his score, and saying that he still have some goddamn balletic posture.

I don’t think it’s lack of confidence *hell, I don’t think he’d try that kind of layout without being confident, in his jumps at least*. 

Nathan wants to win, and since the judges seem ready to throw high marks at him for things that are’t there, he goes for it. The blame here is on the judges (and the crazy fans who try to justify 9s on SS, TR, IN etc): if they applied the actual rules his GOEs and PCS would be lower (and not by 1-2 points tbh, but much more) and maybe we’d see something different. 

All I know is that I’m not excited about where men’s skating is going. I guess I’ll just cling to Yuzuru’s views about jumps and incorporating everything into the programs. Never though I’d say this one day, but here it is: Chiddy is right. ._____.

i’m like hey, what’s up, hello!! my name is tina, currently 19, residing in the est time zone and using she/her pronouns. i’m a total hot mess minus the hot, so uh excuse me if i suck. under the cut are some points about my wreckage of a baby nari (who i’ve played before and love to play) so yeah like this and i’ll slide in your im’s for some plots! trigger warnings of: abuse, violence, underage sex, drug/alcohol abuse, mental illness

Anonymous asked: Hello~  I just wanted to know if you have read the latest chapter and what did you thought about it? Thank you~~

SPOILERS AHEAD


Toshinori surprised me so much. To be honest, I kind of expected things to go a little more south, maybe for a few accusations to be spoken or something or maybe even excuses (and don’t get me started on Midoriya, my heart ached so much for him and I felt his desperation to not lose his mentor very clearly.)

Instead, Toshinori displayed an amazing will to live and at the same time, something about it saddens me a little. Here we have this amazing guy, who has literally given his body and almost his life to being a hero. It’s what he lived for, I’m also sure that for him, it was everything.

I can barely imagine what it must have felt like to realize that he had to give it all up, everything that he was, everything that he stood for and that he wanted to achieve. The peace he fought so hard for is crumbling and he can’t do anything while at the same time, he knows there is the very real possibility that he might still get killed in the future.

And yet, with Midoriya, he found something new. He found something else to live for and I think it reawakened his fighting spirit, maybe in a different way, maybe he thinks a bit differently about things now, but fact is, he’s willing to fight and hold on to his life with everything he has.

I was so, so relieved by their conversation and that Midoriya and Toshinori talked things out so clearly and properly. Yes, maybe Mirio would have been a good candidate, he’s certainly someone who could be worthy, however, things are the way they are and I think it’s good like this.

Now, I think the part that makes me a little sad is, that, at the current time, is Toshinori willing to live for himself? I personally think that isn’t really or completely the case. He’s someone who dedicated everything, his blood and sweat and tears, his time and all his thoughts to being there for other people. I don’t know how much of his self-value depends on how much he can help others and guessing that would bring me too far into the area of headcanons, so I won’t go into it. It’s just an impression I got from him and it’s something that stuck a little with me.

I’m also glad we got to see how the other students were doing and I’m honestly happy and delighted to see Ochako and Tsuyu, especially while working together. They seem to make a good team (and I like Ryukyu already, especially because she is a dragon hero and I love dragons) and I can’t wait to see how much stronger they all get due to their experiences in the internship.

And, at the last page, there is of course Overhaul, who is so far, apparently, one of the shittiest characters in BNHA. I wonder how right Midoriya was when he wondered if he abused his daughter (in the same sentence, I also wonder if she really is his child or if he just said that, but either way, if either she really is or if she’s kidnapped, what an asshat). And I hope we’ll find out if this guy is really as bad as they currently make us think he is.

Also, Tomura. This guy is someone who I think is only starting to really become dangerous. He seems a lot more levelheaded and in control and also, kinda older? I don’t know, he gives off a more mature feeling (maybe it’s the thug hood, who knows, it’s just an impression I got from him.) (also, holy crap, is it just me or are his hands drawn sort of graceful in the last panel?)

Generally, this chapter relieved me a whole lot, when it comes to Midoriya and Toshinori, I was glad to see a few other students as well and I’m getting a little worried about what sort of dangerous shit Tomura and Overhaul could cook up.

Phew, finally got this to a point I’m happy with.  I said earlier that what initially got me to watch Voltron was Space!Zelda, so here she is.  It was actually kind of hilarious how similar their designs are, I barely had to make anything up.

Also, I love pink/blue color themes.  This might be the heart of why I like Princess Zelda… and why I like space.

  • Sun: Hey, so you're Ruby's dad?
  • Taiyang: Yup, that's me. You must be Sun.
  • Sun: Yeah. I mostly know her through Blake, but we're still good friends and-
  • Taiyang: Alright, fine, you can marry my daughter!
  • Sun: Excuse me? No, you're misunderstanding-
  • Taiyang: Oh, don't think I don't know what's happening. You're a fun, attractive, blonde male with a nice tan and killer abs. I know how you're kind works. Sure, right now you're chasing after the broody, long haired brunette who always runs away from her team, but eventually you're going to realize you made a mistake and so you settle down with her short teammate in a hood who you fall for after she starts helping you raise the child. And then she'll die and you'll get a case of clinical depression and then both of your precious daughters will leave you and you live your life wondering what the hell went wrong and-
  • Sun: I'll do whatever you want just please stop crying.
Love is commitment. Love is not always understanding them, but trying to. Love is knowing that when life gets too heavy, you have them to spot you. Love is both words and action. Love is when your mistakes are your fault alone and making excuses is too risky so your only option is to try to fix them. Love is not having to wait until you’re drunk or it’s 2am to show them your soul. Love is when flaws are just another part of the masterpiece. Love is saying what needs to be said because honesty might be painful but they’re too priceless to lie to. Love is when you can’t be happy if they aren’t. Love is respect. Love is patience. Love is being kind. Love is love is love.

People keep saying that Harry being a Horcrux excuses or at least somewhat affected the way they treated him, because Horcruxes make you crazy mad at everything and super depressed. What I think is astounding is that Harry lived with the Horcrux inside him for 16 fucking years. He even carried two or more at a time with little to no ill effects. How fucking strong is he mentally that he can carry that weight and still be the kind person that he is throughout the series.

Harry fuckin’ Potter man. He’s strong as fuck.

This is based on a thing @prozdvoices did. I’ve always wanted to draw what King Dragon might actually look like, so I ended up with this guy. I imagine that he can turn into a dragon, but he defaults to this sick dragon-person. After I was done, I realised he kind of looked like a manakete from Fire Emblem (especially because of his ears). Also, Dennis. :D

HOLD UP
*Antonyms of Slytherin*
-Friendly
-Open
-Optimistic
-Accepting
-Warm
-Mellow
-Reserved
-Laid-back
-Kind

Excuse me?
I’m about to disprove every single one of these so make a cup of tea and get ready.

1) Friendly 

You can’t just dismiss ¼ of wizards and witched as ‘unfriendly’ simply because of a stereotype. Since when did being ambitious and being friendly become mutually exclusive? Yes, there are some Slytherins who are particular assholes, but what about other houses? You’re saying that in Gryffindor, a house that values bravery and all around cockiness people were always friendly? As well as that, the house that is known for valuing kindness is Hufflepuff. Are you saying that Hufflepuff and Slytherin are opposites? Yes, the people who make up those houses have very different personalities, but as always, there is some overlay, or Slytherpuffs would not exist. For example, Narcissa Black was almost sorted into Hufflepuff because of her fierce loyalty towards her family. Kindness is a basic human emotion, missing only in the mind of psychopaths, which is not the word I would use to describe Regulus, Slughorn, and the great Merlin himself.

2)Open

So practically ¾ of Hogwarts hates Slytherin and believes them to be heartless monsters, but it surprises you that they don’t seem open? Okay, Slytherins tend to hide their emotions from most people, but within a Slytherin’s small group of friends they will not hesitate to tell them everything, because unlike some other houses, a secret stays a secret. This is one of the words I could potentially agree with as I have found myself closing off from other people when I do not want to burden them, but my best friend knows everything about me as we keep no secrets from each other, something former members from the Gryffindor house (dumbledore) could not say, having kept a certain boy-who-lived’s inescapable early death from him for more than 7 years.

3) Optimistic

Yeah, okay I can see where the author of this is coming from with this one

4)Accepting

Okay we need to stop using common traits of Hufflepuff as antonyms for Slytherin! If there is one thing Slytherins are not accepting of then it’s bigoted behavior because “everyone else may think we’re evil but we will not sink to meet their expectations.”

5) Warm

Just because Slytherins will not pour their heart out to anyone who knows them doesn’t mean they are soulless. Slytherins may act distant from the other houses, but why would they have any reason to share their feelings with anyone who thinks that they are evil? We always know what to say to our closest friends, and have such big hearts for those willing to put in effort to try and find out.

6) Mellow

Okay so Slytherins may not be the most mellow, but like hell any non-slytherins would know, because if anything, we are good appearing calm and collected, but simmering with rage and hatred beneath the surface. Also, just because we fight fight for what we want instead of just waiting for the opportunity to fall into our lap doesn’t mean we’re hotheads.

7) Reserved

Slytherin’s may voice their opinion when they think something is wrong, because someone needs to speak out, however only if we think it will give any impact, or benefit. If someone acting really homophobic, of course we will tell them to sit the fuck down and rethink their priorities, but if you do so every day, it will lose its effect. We pick and choose our battles.

8) Laid-back

Laid-back is definitely something that comes with age. If you look at the first year Slytherins, then yes, you could say that they are not at all laid back, stressing until 2am about a homework due the next day. However as they get older, the fucks being given get less and less, until eventually they have perfected the art of needing a constant base layer of stress to function, and can therefore relax and not think about their fast-approaching essay due date until the night before, whereas a hufflepuff is running up and down the library halls with stress. You see, every house procrastinates, but it takes talent to be able to relax while putting off work.

9) Kind

This is the last one, and I believe the worst. Yes, may protect their emotions, but that doesn’t mean we are not kind. it is about time that people stop predicting our entire personality on Severus Snape, a guy most Slytherins didn’t even like, just pretended to because duh, extra credit. Please stop dismissing us as unkind, just because we have a slightly cruel (but admittedly hilarious) sense of humor, or occasionally enjoy intimidating people. Everyone knows this can be fun, we’re just the only house to admit it. These small things aside, just because we are not kind to you, does not mean we are without kindness, it just means we didn’t think you were worth being kind too, especially if you come up with this sort of bullshit list and all of your prejudices.

That was all my fellow slytherins x

My dear lgbt+ children who are polyamorous, 

Your relationships are not “dirty” or “freakish” or “kinky”.  

Being polyamorous is not “a creative excuse to cheat”. 

When everyone involved consents to and is happy with the relationship, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

PS: “Wait, what is polyamory?” Polyamorous relationships are relationships that involve more than two people.  This can look like “Anna, Britta and Carol are in a relationship.” or “Anna and Britta are in a relationship, Britta is also dating Carol”. 

PPS: “How is that different from cheating?” Easy: Anna, Britta and Carol are all aware of each other and consent to this kind of relationship. They’re all happy with the relationship(s). (As opposed to “Anna and Britta are dating, Britta is also secretly dating Carol.”. That’s cheating.).
