whatever will fit in there really

the original batb village: thinks Belle is actually really sweet, nice and beautiful, but thinks its a shame she reads too much and doesn’t fit in, and her dad is a joke but whatevs its cool bellexgaston is their otp cuz theyre both great

the remake village: is this fuckin close to burning Emma Watson alive

ok so?? spoilers? but I never really said anything abt my feelings on the new ep and recent eps here (even tho I’ve been screaming abt it on twitter) so. some things that bother me abt recent taz events

how does the timeline of their lives even work with them all having supposedly belonged to this organization in their past…where does it fit?? something feels out of place in the sequence of events. and the whole ‘there’s this NEW and OTHER thing that ALSO makes you forget all abt this part of your life so I have free reign over ur backstories’ is really. it feels cheap. not good story telling but. whatever that’s been an element to the whole show. and I’ve been suspicious of their memory gaps since the eleventh hour so that’s not exactly a new concern. oh yeah, but the whole ‘you have a sibling you forgot about and I am deciding this for you despite it not fitting your character motivations and despite saying that I wouldn’t mess with your original backstory’ also is really. ehhhh. like is it just me or is this starting to feel a little. needlessly convoluted? and bit like god modding? I never really cared abt the taako sister theory bc it just felt like. it would be bad writing for it to be true but now here we are and I’m just like. ok that’s. really dumb but ok.

good things:

lucretia!!! love her, glad she’s not really the bad guy
Angus? an angel. the fact that taako said he trusts him was nice, and he is generally just a good egg that I enjoy havin around. hmmm what else. those Taako and Merle character interactions were real good, and I’m so glad mags is back in his flesh bod

idk what else to say, this ep was a tough one for me. I’m intrigued by the hunger, wanna see where this story goes, but as of now there are some things that are feeling really forced and unnecessary, and like griffin is writing a fanfiction rather than creating a world for actual players with agency

Monthly Pinup: March - Gal Daigoji

These have always been at minimum mid month releases, and that’s partly because I’ve been wanting to try and get a feel for tone of the month to make a picture that matches.

And after this month of swing weather and a grab bag of hardships, a theme of “Stand against the raging storm” seemed really fitting. And the only character to properly fit that is Gal. Actually moved the order of characters around to get her in to this month’s slot.

Gal doesn’t have a super deep background or role in any story. She’s just…badass. The unyeilding. The personification of GUTS. The simple hero that always rise to face whatever grand evil appears. An archetype more than a character, really.

Bonus fun Gal Daigoji fact: At some point I basically decided that any story she’s in has to start the same was as Commander Keen story pages. Except instead of An older brother’s football helmet, it’s an older sister’s gar glasses. That still tickles me. I don’t know if there’s a Bean with Bacon Megarocket equivalent, because I think if she has to get anywhere, she just jumps real hard.

”So to find people who are just like me, on Tumblr, like whether that’s being a child of alcoholism, not fitting in, being an asexual or a lesbian or gay or whatever, finding you’re not the only person in the world who’s going through this is such a unique experience.“

That’s from of @halloweentownhigh’s description of Tumblr in this @washingtonpost report about teens finding and creating supportive communities online. This whole thing is really good. 

Whatever’s going in your life, remember that you’re not alone. We’ve got a project called @postitforward where people can share their stories, break down stigmas, and just generally feel good about themselves. Check it out.

One-word spell?

Hi, so i really like making my own spells but i don’t feel very comfortable with saying loooong sentences and basically using a lot of words. So i often use One Word Spells.

 What?

Yes, the One Word Spells. They are more powerfull than you think. Rules are simple: say loud just one word.

 How?

This is how to do it:

1. Light a candle ( use colour that fits your intention or your fav ; )

2. Sit (on the floor, chair, whatever, just be close to the candle) and relax.I said: relax. It’s important. Really. Chill.

3. Think. Think about your intentions. Treat it like some kind of a prayer (?) Just think a lot about what you need right now, what is your intention. Don’t be afraid to talk a lot, it’s your own head, right?

4. Say it. Choose one word and ‘import’ all of your thoughts from  ↑ in this few letters. Imagine this situation- your thoughts become 1 single word.

5. Leave the candle lighting for a moment. Stare in the flame, it’s cool, isn’t it? Now you can put it off. It’s over. 

Just one word.

  37. - Making a game together.

  40. - Taking that stage show around the world to meet as many of their fans as possible.
  41. - Making that stage show and its development into two movies.
  42. I literally could go on for hours about what they’ve done together, which is a feat in itself and deserves to be its own reason.
  43. Basically they are YouTube’s Power Duo, as acclaimed by the King of YouTube himself.
  44. They’ve been best friends for over seven years, and roommates for about five (as of the date this post was published).
  45. They are totally identical and yet total opposites.
  46. You get the idea, they are friendship goals is what I’m saying.
  47. He never uses clickbait - all his titles and thumbnails are completely relevant to the video’s content/purpose…
  48. …which is not the same for most YouTubers or internet stars, which makes him even more special.

  72. He is good with animals and loves dogs.
  73. He has saved millions of lives, including mine.
  74. Very few people have achieved the above point at all in history…

  77. He makes an active effort to interact with us by hosting weekly liveshows and responding to our tweets.
  78. He is able to joke about his mistakes and insecurities.
  79. He is able to discuss death and existentialism.

  82. He’s really fucking brave.
  83. He isn’t one to kinkshame people.
  84. He calls himself jealous, but was he jealous when Phil won Creator of the Year at the BONCAs? Hell, no. He was happier that Phil won it than he would have been if he himself had won it.
  85. Phil called him up on stage to share the award with him but at the end he still said “Phil Lester, everyone!” and in doing so was still giving Phil full credit.
  86. If he’d won that award, we all know that he would have called Phil up just like Phil did to him.
  87. Basically he’s really fucking selfless.
  88. He’s not afraid to show what he has/feels against society and labels. That takes guts.
  89. He isn’t one to get involved in drama, and when he does it’s for the right reason.
  90. He’s donated thousands of pounds to charity, including 100% of the profits from The Internet Is Here.
  91. He cowrote and featured in a chart-topping single with Phil, The Internet Is Here.
  92. He doesn’t underestimate us, or anyone else.

  96. He has worked very hard on every single project he’s ever engaged, whether it be a BBC documentary or a stage show or just a casual video.
  97. He handles negativity extremely well.
  98. He is the literal antonym of the term ‘sell-out’.
  99. He’s learned not to give a fuck about how people perceive him, which is something many people never learn.
  100. He is everything and more that we could ask of anyone, and is the perfect role model/idol. We need more people like him to exist, and I love him to the bottom of my heart.
  101. 100 reasons doesn’t even begin to cover why we should love Daniel James Howell, but it’s a start.
PET PLAY - which animal do you best identify as?

A lot of people messaged me asking which animal would best fit them; they’ll describe their personality to me and I try to make my best decision. But I am not the one who can choose for you. You have to choose. Here are some characteristics of different pets to possibly help you narrow down and choose which pet would best fit you. (This list does not have every pet and these are not the only pets you can be. Be whatever you want and do whatever you want; no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.)


• BAT: negative, wants people to fear them, isolated, quirky, loves fruit, independent, “vampire-like”, possibly nocturnal

• BEAR: shy, closed off, not really clingy, playful, internally energetic, slow-moving

• BIG CAT: certain, stoic, secretly playful, appearance is important (grooming, stance, etc.), authority, elegance, sleek, seduction

• BUNNY: very cuddly, oral fixation, likes to hide under and paw at things, very childish, daydreamer, emotional, ditzy, headbutts others as a form of communication, needs attention

• DRAGON: asks for a lot, is not to be commanded, prideful, doesn’t like collars/restraints, headstrong, stubborn, protective, collects/hoards things

• FAWN: timid, shy, playful, adventurous, silly, klutzy, wary, enjoys being outdoors, better with an owner

• FERRET: fun, bouncy, can annoy others for amusement, equally active and lazy, likes to dig, hides things

• FOX: clever, playful, tricksters, doesn’t mind being around others, curious, fast, enjoys being in small spaces, excitable

• KITTEN: incredibly cuddly most of the time, will occasionally need space, very playful, needs a lot of petting, could get along without an owner but doesn’t want to, lazy with weird bouts of energy, likes to play hunt and pounce, likes toys

• LAMB: very quiet, meek, likes physical attention, likes soft things, likes getting dolled up, very submissive, obedient, lower energy, conservative

• PIG: loves to be coddled, sticks close to others, loves being given snacks, minimizes movement

• PONY: strong, proud, a little bit skittish, gentle, wants to work with others, curious, likes to have a job/responsibility, likes learning, curious

• PUPPY: playful, energetic, enjoys company, affectionate, enjoys physical contact, silly, plays with toys, curious, immature, better with an owner, loyal

• RAT: can be aggressive/feral or friendly and loving, greedy with food/items, likes to test bite/lick their owner, loves on and sleeps on others

• WOLF: independent but uses their pack for safety and comfort, strong, reserved initially, observant, grown-up, smart, self-sufficient, can get along without an owner, follows instincts, pack-mentality

Motivation is broken into two parts: wanting something and believing you can achieve it; you need both to be successful in whatever it is you’re aiming for. Always believe in yourself. Call me crazy, but I think that is more powerful than anything.

Music Headcanons

(Because I need a break from nanowrimo, and also because I started thinking about this a few days ago.)


Shiro

  • likes listening to: musicals, he freaking adores musicals, he will sing along to all of them and be embarrassing, do the dances, make funny voices, reenact the entire thing; matt had to put up with so much back at the garrison, that man has Suffered
  • fun fact: knows all the words to Hamilton and was so appalled that keith hadn’t heard of it that he proceeded to sit the punk down and did the entire musical from top to bottom (keith was impressed, intimidated, and really had to pee by the end of that lengthy performance)
  • embarrassing fact: was the one who introduced keith to MCR; he refuses to let lance know because he’ll never hear the end of it, and almost dies of embarrassment when allura finds out (”calm down, allura doesn’t even know what MCR is –” “it’s the principle”)

Keith

  • likes listening to: whatever fits his current mood; he’s not very picky about genre but he has to be feelin’ it, so if he’s sad it’s gotta be sad music, if he’s feeling like punching shit it’s gotta be loud, if he’s pining he’s going to listen to so many cheesy lovesongs (shiro stages an intervention because he can only listen to this shit for so long through the castle walls, dammit keith)
  • fun fact: his first time in a mosh pit he got elbowed in the face hard enough to get a black eye and he thought it was awesome
  • embarrassing fact: was trying to be romantic by playing a love song… and unintentionally rickrolled lance (”i can’t believe the person i like?? doesn’t know what rickrolling is????” “wait you like me?!” “UH”)

Pidge

  • likes listening to: music that has a lot of layers to it, since she enjoys picking through all the sounds and separating them in her head; she actually enjoys ‘classical music’ (”ugh why did that term even stick around, the classical period wasn’t that long” “pidge don’t be pedantic”) a lot, and she has a soft spot for bach’s preludes and fugues 
  • fun fact: knows how to play the piano and was quite good at it, but she had more fun with science so she pursued that instead of music
  • embarrassing fact: started listening to classical music so young that she couldn’t pronounce the composer names, e.g. beethoven rhymed with ‘teeth oven’, chopin was ‘choppin’, mozart sounded like the beginning of ‘mozzarella’

Lance

  • likes listening to: literally anything that sounds vaguely catchy, though he tends to enjoy songs with interesting riffs or hooks or rhythms; when he has to focus or sleep, he’ll listen to instrumentals so he doesn’t get distracted thinking about all the words
  • fun fact: has a surprisingly nice singing voice but he’s shy about it, so he always sings in really exaggerated impressions to avoid having people poke fun at his actual voice
  • embarrassing fact: he can’t remember the words to songs for shit, so he just starts yelling what he thinks the words are, and a lot of the time he’s wrong (”you turn the liGHTS off then you – tuuurn them BACK OOooon – shining like it’s a liiIIGHT” “oh my god lance stop” [x])

Hunk

  • likes listening to: relaxing music that he can just leave as background noise while working, or anything quiet and mellow since it helps to calm his anxiety; listens to slightly more upbeat stuff while cooking or working out because it gets him hyped
  • fun fact: remembers lyrics really well, which is a blessing since it makes him a favourite with lance’s younger siblings because he can sing every disney song to them (he had to ban ‘let it go’ though)
  • embarrassing fact:  remembers lyrics really well, which is a curse because lance plays his music really loudly and hunk knows all of the songs from high school musical, lance why did you do this to me 

Allura

  • likes listening to: appreciates all kinds of music because alteans are extremely openminded with the arts, what with all the travelling and diplomacy with different alien societies, and she’s a princess to boot so she’s been exposed to all kinds of cultures; she has a soft spot for dances, since it reminds her of dancing with her father in ballrooms
  • fun fact: on one of the crew’s diplomatic missions, she saved shiro from being stabbed by whacking his would-be-attacker across the room with a ‘space trombone’; the sight was so epic that it apparently inspired somebody present to compose a romantic opera in her honour
  • embarrassing fact: allura is horribly tonedeaf and can’t carry a tune for her life; she tried learning how to play some traditional altean instruments when she was a child and it was a disaster

Coran

  • likes listening to: has a really broad music taste because he’s used to hearing all sorts of stuff as an altean royal advisor; really enjoys listening to folk music or music that is very culturally significant to its people, since he likes to learn about different aliens’ histories and cultures
  • fun fact: he once stopped an assassination attempt on an ambassador at a banquet by starting a ‘space rap battle’ to defend a diplomat’s honour and somehow it became a binding peace treaty between two warring planets, nobody is really sure how that happened
  • embarrassing fact: lance keeps tricking coran into thinking ridiculous songs are of great cultural significance to humans (”lance stop pranking him” “look it’s not my fault he now thinks the he-man song is an inspiring story about the human struggle? i can’t ruin his dreams now?”)

bonus headcanon: the space mice secretly start their own tiny band because they know a lot of altean music after being mind-linked with allura; they hold a concert for the whole crew on an important altean holiday, it makes allura and coran super happy

quick korrasami things:

  • are canonically Work Out Pals™, can and do bench press each other and have developed a post work out ritual of going out for coffee together before parting for the day
  • know when the other needs space or doesn’t want to be alone
  • sometimes korra can’t sleep after nightmares and gets really restless bc of them so she tries getting out of bed quietly to kill the hours in another room so as not to disturb her girlfriend, but asami always wakes up like 15 seconds after korra and joins her. she makes them tea and they talk idly until the sun rises and korra’s forgotten all about her night terror.
  • are literally?? so smitten with each other, it’s ridiculous.
  • asami: *pulls her hair up in a pony tail* korra: *gasps, clutches heart* bea utiful
  • whenever korra does the cute nose scrunch asami has to kiss it: she literally drops whatever she’s doing to kiss her it’s. that important okay.
  • when they go out anywhere together their outfits always fit and go really reallly well together. they’re not even actively trying or planning what clothes to wear, it just happens: they’re always the #goals couple.

here for all my baby aces.

here for all the ace teens being told they can’t be ace.

here for all the ace teens being told their sexuality is somehow putting others at risk (it’s not.)

here for all the teens who aren’t sure, but don’t really get all this sex stuff.

here for all the ace teens who got really worried after health class.

here for all the teens being told they’re just late bloomers.

here for all the teens who just are trying on different labels to figure out which one fits best.

here for all the teens who DO like the label ace, but are scared of all the discourse.

here for all the teens who don’t want a label, but just want to live their lives.

its okay. you’re okay. I love you. You have a right to try out whatever labels you want, or none at all. whatever you choose has no ill effect on other teens, and I will fight anyone who tells you differently. But most of all, know that you have time. If you want to identify as something now, and either keep it or change that later, great! You aren’t too young to try to understand yourself. If you just want to enjoy being a kid and not deal with sexuality right now, also great! You know what’s best for you. You have time.

I think the choice to not have the video for “Hallelujah Money” be animated was so. good. not only because Benjamin Clementine killed it but because the whole point is look how real this is. It doesn’t really fit into the narrative whateverness of the band, either. It’s a single being released on January 19th, 2017 for a very explicit reason. And just everything about it is perfect.

kristsune  asked:

16 and sterek maybe?? :D

16. “Why haven’t you kissed me yet?”

The dates are perfect. Nights spent curled up on the couch watching their favorite movies. Afternoons out discovering restaurants neither had been to before for lunch. Entire weekends sharing each other with the rest of the pack and growing ever closer and closer and closer…

Stiles has no complaints. He’s never before thought he could enjoy spending so much time with Derek. Yet here he is, constantly moving his schedule around to fit Derek in at every available opportunity. He doesn’t even really mind that they haven’t made whatever is going on between them official. It’s nice to just take it easy for once.

But still he has that voice in the back of his head. The one that wonders why Derek never seems to want to initiate contact. That worries when Derek purposely angles his face to avoid a kiss. Stiles can’t help but doubt that Derek even really likes him at all.

“You know that’s not true, Stiles,” Derek argues, looking more hurt than angry at Stiles’ comment.

“Then why haven’t you kissed me yet? Why won’t you hold my hand or even hug me? We are dating right?” Stiles says.

“Because every time I kiss someone they seem to end up dead!” The air around them rings in silence for a long moment. “Or they try to kill me. Most of the time it’s both.”

Derek is staring at the ground with his jaw clenched and hands drawn into fists at his sides. Stiles watches him long enough to see his shoulders lift higher and higher with tension until he can’t take it anymore and he steps up to Derek. He reaches slowly toward Derek’s hands, running his fingers softly along the white knuckles. There’s blood smeared across his palms and the tips of his fingers when Stiles pulls apart Derek’s fists, but he ignores it.

“Okay,” he says finally, voice just louder than a whisper.

Derek’s heavy brow furrows in confusion but relaxes when he sees Stiles’ face. 

“We can wait. Or we don’t ever have to,” Stiles says, swallowing the thickness built up in his throat. “You choose the pace.”

He goes to slip his hands out of Derek’s, but Derek grabs them before he can, squeezing them between his warm fingers. Stiles smiles at that, letting his arms hang loose in front of him. With soft gazes and joined hands, they come to a silent agreement.

I see a lot of people saying they liked Rogue One better than the Force Awakens and tbh I don’t understand why we have to compare them. They’re both good but have different vibes because they are at different points in the chronology. Rogue One had to fit into the original Star Wars plot like a puzzle piece. The Force Awakens is a new chapter so it could really have been whatever it wanted to be. I love them both.

Listener - Request

Requested by anon:  Being Sherlocks first girlfriend and him only listening to you during one of his boredom cravings? Thank you so much!

Summary: Reader realizes Sherlock doesn’t listen to her unless his bored, which makes her feel a bit down and Sherlock notices.

Pairing: Sherlock x reader

Word count: 1,505

Warnings: Nope.

A/N: It’s been a while since I write in the “you…” format (whatever it is called) so I’m curious as to what reaction you’ll have.

Enjoy!

Sherlock Holmes, the most famous high-functioning sociopath and your boyfriend.

He was a lot of things, but a good boyfriend wasn’t one of them. For instance, his high ego about his intellect made it hard for him to give you a decent compliment which resulted in: “Your… shirt looks nice, although that colour doesn’t really fit you”, “Your un-used mind amuses me” and “I’d rather keep you at home than out on a case, you might ruin it… And I also want you to be safe, although no one is really safe. Bye!”

However, you were enamoured with him. His aureate language and his multiple talents had you head over heels, without mentioning those small but highly appreciated moments in which he would actually show affection to you.

It was weird, and nobody understood how you could date a man like him, but that’s exactly what love does: it turns you into a stupid person. Sherlock would remark that as constantly as possible, making sure to add a “maybe that’s why my IQ is becoming lower… because of you” Which was as romantic as he’d get.

You’d find yourself brooding about him when he and John were on a case. He had had a few love affairs in the past, nothing to worry about, and they had proven to everyone that Sherlock Holmes could actually feel; after all you were his first girlfriend. However, there was still something off about your relationship. An effervescent feeling, down your gut, that begged you to re-think.

But what was it?
