what snowflake

anonymous asked:

Mod Saihara? May I ask what you consider 'special snowflake'?

Well, this is simply my opinion. It does not have to match yours. A special snowflake, to me, is someone who at first embraces being “different.” For example, being proud that they are gay. However, it rises to unhealthy levels. They begin to feel entitled and on a taller throne than others, simply because they are “different.” These people act as if it’s wrong to call them “different” for who they are, yet they feel different and better than everyone else. This is where your average special snowflake/SJW fits in on the spectrum. 

While it’s nice to be proud of who you are, you can’t let it get to delusional levels. I hope this made sense. I’m a bit nervous to share my opinions…

What your pronouns say about you

He - You’re a boy

She - You’re a girl

They - You’re either a trans person struggling with dysphoria or you’re a mediocre teenager looking for something to make them feel a bit more unique. 

Ze / ve / ne etc - You’re even more pathetic and desperate for attention than the non-dysphoric “they”s. There’s nothing remotely interesting about you so you have to make shit up. 

Reasons why I’m like Dante Quintana
  • hates wearing shoes
  • likes dogs
  • initiates weird conversation topics
  • only likes rules when I make them
  • enjoys watching the stars

So I heard people talk about a gem au and decided to pick out my gems for the Paladins. I’m still developing my version of this au so bare with me. I honestly wouldn’t mind people using these gems as long as they can give me some kind of credit, and because I highlighted some info of the gems that reminded me each Paladin, I don’t want others to steal my ideas for the reason why I chose their gems and claim it as there’s. Please, I really put a lot of research into the gems and I don’t want someone to just straight up take them. But if you use the highlighted stuff for reference then that’s fine by me. So in the meantime, I will be working on the au and upload future posts of each gem, why I chose their specific gems, their relationships with each other, their enemies, other characters, and fusions.


Ask Ethan: Could you have two perfectly identical snowflakes?

“I know scientists say that no two snowflakes are alike, but I say "how can you definitively know that unless you can see every single snowflake that falls.” Maybe a snowflake in Russia falls [at] the same time as a snowflake in Minnesota and they’re the same.“

When you see a snowflake, what you’re seeing is a thin crystal of ice, with intricate, hexagonally-symmetric features that reveal themselves under a microscope. Although snowflakes come in a myriad of different shapes and patterns, there’s one adage you’ve heard since you were a kid: that no two snowflakes are alike. From a scientific perspective, is that true? What gives snowflakes their intricate structures, and what does it truly mean for a snowflake to be unique? Do we require the exact same branching structure? Can we obtain that if we create them artificially? Do we require identical-ness down to a molecular or atomic level? And how much snow would we need for that to happen?

Come find out the real science behind two snowflakes being alike on this week’s Ask Ethan!

uranus is a generational planet and rules individualism. the sign it is in shows what type of “special snowflake subculture” that generation will bring forth. while it was in aquarius, it was the gothic subculture (rebellious?), while it was in pisces, it was the emo subculture (emotional water sign), and now that it is in aries, the warrior sign, i like to think that “social justice warriors” is the subculture of this uranus generation.

We know that there are people who claim (with no evidence) that we are nonbinary just to be special. We also know that such people are wrong.

We are nonbinary because that’s who we are.

But why not feel special because you’re nonbinary? Is being special a bad thing? I don’t think so. Being nonbinary is unique, interesting, and beautiful.

Feel special if you want to.

Uncultured Tim Drake x Reader

Request for Tim by @rigorousgiraffes

You walked down the stairs, your heels clicking, red dress flowing with your elegant movements. Everyone’s heads shifted to face you, their eyes tracing every movement, and you couldn’t help but smile from all the attention. 

 You smiled at familiar faces, but never stopped to make a conversation, as you made your way to the bar at the end of the room. 

 'Room’ wasn’t the word for the majestically decorated hall, pale blue flowers placed delicately on each table. Gold ribbons wrapping the columns, an impressive Christmas tree at the heart of the hall, speckled with snowflakes. 

“What can I get you?” You turned to face the bartender, “Water, no ice.” He nodded, handing you a glass, you smiled in return. 

Turning, you prop an elbow on the counter and sip your water, watching the social event through the bottom of your glass.

 You feel a presence settle beside you and you take a moment to voice your opinion, “I’ve never seen a more uncultured group of people.“ 

 A low chuckle, “How do you mean?" 

 "Well, for one, all the women try to outshine the next with their dresses, without breaking the theme, and you can physically see them snake around to everyone they feel threatened by.”

 A silence from the man next to you encouraged you to go on, “The men hope that no one notices their absence, while their secretaries happen to coincidentally disappear as well. They come back disheveled, but still have the nerve to kiss their spouse to keep up their appearance. 

 And the poor children, born into dysfunctional families, probably being forced to make friends with all the heirs and heiresses. I can’t imagine how it’ll weigh down on them later." 

 "What about you then?” He asked. 

 "What about me?“ 

 "You showed up hours late.”

 "Traffic.“ You say simply.

 He cocks his head, "On Christmas Eve?”

“Of course, the roads are extremely congested." 

"Then the red dress.”

“What about it?" 

"The theme is winter." 

 "Well…” You paused, thinking, “It’s cold during winter, everyone looks for warmth. That’s why I chose red. Plus I look good in red.”

“Well so do I.” He said amusement in his voice. 

“Whatever, to each his own.”

You turned to face him, your eyes met his deep blue ones. He was built, as if he exercised a lot, but his posture suggested he spent lots of time on the computer. He was handsome, but he didn’t seem like a social sort. 

“So why are you here, this doesn’t seem like your kind of scene."  

"I’m Tim. Tim Drake. My dad is Bruce Wayne, I kind of have to be here." 

 You choked on your water, "About everything I said about the people being uncultured, I didn’t me—" 

 "Everything you said was true,” He said, waving his hand to dismiss your guilt, “What’s your name?" 

 ”(Y/N). (Y/N) (L/N).“ 

 "How do you feel about some coffee?" 

 "It’s eleven PM." 

 "It’s never too late for coffee." 

 "It’s Christmas Eve, nothing’s open." 

 "I can make it." 

"I don’t drink coffee.” You said, for the sake of the exchange. 

 "That’s not even humanly possible.“ 

 "You’re right, let’s go, Tim.” You said grinning. 

 He smiled, grabbing your hand. 


 "Did Drake just leave with a female?“ Damian said from the other side of the room. 

 "Really?!” Dick said like an excited puppy. 

 "Leave Tim alone.“ Bruce said, squinting to make sure he wasn’t seeing things.

Dick laughed, "Little Timmy’s got some moves.”

Thanks for being my first Christmas request @rigorousgiraffes

“What the… hell?” Jensen breathed out, moving around frantically.

“This- something’s not right” Jared frowned, looking around him “Wasn’t the scene supposed to finish at this?” he added.

Jensen nodded his head “Yeah but- forget that. Where the heck is everybody? And where did they take the cameras?”

“More importantly- what is… this?” Jared breathed out, pointing to the wall right in front of him. Ure he knew what it was but he knew it wasn’t supposed to be there. connected to another wall and then another and in the end forming a complete, closed room. And even worst than everybody being gone along with the cameras, this looked so realistic to the point it scared them.

Jensen laughed nervously to cover up for his discomfort “Bet Misha decided to play some really messed up joke on us”

“I am actually really hoping it’s that because if it’s not then-”

“No, no this is messed up. It is too messed up to even think about let alone-”

“Dean? Sam? Oh hey guys! Didn’t know you were here” you smiled at them as soon as you entered the bunker. You frowned for a second as you took a look at them. The way they were standing was different from normal.
