which as we can see can be a very good thing!

nocturnalzephyr asked: Skylar, I’m going to talk to your a bunch so you can learn a lot, ok? Do you know how humans work? Our brains send electric signals through our body and make our muscles move! Our brains have chemicals that make us feel certain ways too, but humans and AIs aren’t all that unlike each other!

—-
Some kind like of me i new things make honey sometimes it say to you could feel the bees so skylar humans as bad bees that was a very good there are about different flowers which only grow some one live there you could see you are like of me you were a good we can keep it will die think that it love them people to make sense doing a great.

anonymous asked:

What is your favourite B-bomb hair?

Well he has two default hairstyles

or

This when his hairstylist runs out of hairspray which you can see how upset he is. He asked the members but they told him fuck off like usual

But my favorite is this thing that got birthed out for Very Good. If you can say no to this color and style we can’t be friends, we will never get along.

anonymous asked:

I'm sorry if you have answered this before, but do you believe we are going to get textual canon Destiel?

You know, I really don’t know for sure. I think there’s a really good chance, but there’s lots of factors. I can see it being very very strongly implied subtext, or going all the way to canon.

I think one thing we will see is more very clear indications that Cas is in love with Dean, which is kind of already canon. But I think it will be reiterated more clearly, possibly by the end of the season. heck, possibly next episode if Metatron is there and we learn more about Cas’ grace. 

The next step is Dean learning how deeply Cas loves him. Like LOVE LOVE, and Dean dealing with that and allowing himself to love cas back which could take a while…

I do think Cas as a human on earth living out his days with Dean is Cas’ endgame. I can see the series ending with Sam safe in the apple pie life and Dean and Cas on the road together, and the viewers being left to decide for themselves if that’s romantic or not.  Sort of like Legend of Korra? 

I’m not in a hurry for it to go full canon because that would just mean it would hurt more and more and we’d get break ups and misunderstandings and probably not a little bit of queer panic from Dean…any they have bigger problems now. So I’d like to see it as endgame at the end of the series, which is most likely in my eyes.

Then again, to me, the fact they love each other, romantic or platonic, is canon, and I like that.

“In Cold Blood” - excerpt nummer zwei/????

:( :( :( :( make sure you check the tags.  #torture, #brainwashing, among other things which include Doc. Scratch being a mild-mannered evil psychopath.

-

“…he loved you very much,” says the man in white, and his voice is so fucking sympathetic.  You don’t want to cry, you feel like he can see you and you won’t give him the satisfaction, you won’t.  “But we are very very good at brainwashing, Karkat. May I call you Karkat?  I am more accustomed to the name.”

Fuck you,” you croak, and he chuckles like he can hear you.

Damn it, non-negotiable *mumblemumble*

Well then,

  1. I guess I’m pretty creative.
  2. I have a very good memory when it comes to things I’m interested in (sadly, school work isn’t included here T^T)
  3. When I was in high school biology we did a test to see who in the class could taste Phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) by licking strips of paper. Apparently it tastes really bitter and bad and I was scared and didn’t want to lick the paper because I HATE bitter things and my entire class was pulling faces ‘cause it was gross. But then I licked it and I was the only one in the class with the recessive gene which means I can’t taste it :D (shut up, I’m running out of positive things here).
  4. I can ride a bike without using my hands. 
  5. My hair is really soft when I wash it. 

There are too many people to pick from, so everyone who wants to do this can~

“Ikaw dapat yung strongest woman na kilala ko.”

“Yung mga luha mo ang kahinaan ko kaya wag kang iiyak.”

Those words are just some of what he said to me before when i’m down, hopeless and crying. Yesterday, after the first batch of mentoring I asked him to come with me and we’ll eat our lunch but he rufused to and told me to go along with my friends which is very unusual. Galit siya. Nagtatampo siya.

While walking with nowhere to go I always say sorry him bc that’s the only thing I can do. Shitty me. I know he’ll walk away and leave me there when I stopped following him. I can see tears in his eyes which I’m alarmed. I hugged him while he’s walking, good thing there’s no people walking down the street but us. He suddenly sit down on the sidewalk and bow down. I know he’s crying and that time I want to cry too to make him feel that I am sincere in apologizing. My eyes are getting red and wet but there’s no tears falling down. He stood up and told to me to stop crying tho there’s no tears in my eyes bc i remember what he told to me that my tears are his weakness.He even say sorry tho it’s my fault. He keeps on telling me what i’ve done, asking me why I did that and the only thing I can say is sorry. How dumb i am.

We’re already eating the lunch I prepared and I know he’s still mad bc he’s not talking. I bought him another food but he insist on paying it. Tho he’s mad, he still ensure that I’m going to finished my food. Sounds to corny to others pero sinusubuan niya ako. After finishing our food, he apologize and i do apologize too. He told me his side and I understand naman.

Ice cream, i know it’s his comfort food. While eating, he explained to me everything why he treat me that cold. Afterwards, we went back to the lobby and back to our business like nothing happens.

I love him bc I love him. Kahit na kasalanan ko, inaako pa din niya. Ang bilis mawala ng galit niya dahil di daw niya kaya magalit sakin. Thank you for giving this guy to me. Thank you.

It costs nothing to be nice...

Hey hey, I see some nasty messages going around about certain blogs/people. I’m as good as irrelevant in this fandom and therefore avoid interfering with things but I can imagine that spreading rumours and fighting amongst each other can be very upsetting. 

At the end of the day we are all here for our enjoyment and to escape/relax from our day to day duties. Obviously there will always be some tension and disagreements but those shouldn’t lead to people attacking one another. I can imagine that running a ‘famous blog’ (I’m not making a difference between bloggers, everybody is equal in my opinion but some simply have more followers than others) can be rather stressful at times because you always have to watch your words and make sure that you’re not offending anybody (which isn’t easy on here), so as silly as it sounds, those bloggers are under a bit of pressure, which is fine as long as it stays fun. If you do happen to disagree with them or anybody in general, you can unfollow them, simple as that. Spreading stories or sending each other hateful messages will not solve the problem, whereas keeping distance allows everybody to do their own thing without feeling hurt or getting hurt. You get to pick and choose what you want on your dash, as long as you know who you’re putting up with. 

Like I said, I’m in no position to tell others how to manage their blog but it does bother me when things get personal (in the negative sense). Please consider how that would make those feel who we are blogging about. Louis, Harry, Liam, Niall and Zayn all seem very kind and caring and I don’t think they’d want us to fight because of them. Over the years they’ve taught us quite a few things and one of them is to be nice to nice, right? Well, it takes two to tango, so don’t be horrible but be nice, it’s a lot more fun and will get you further in life. 

Bottom line…

Another good thing about these last two episodes: the episode is called Cliffhanger which means that we will probably see Walter drive off the edge of the cliff in this episode (at the very end so it’s a cliffhanger is both meanings of the word). This means that’s there isn’t a time jump between episodes like there normally is, which means that unless there’s a time jump in the episode itself (doubtful), the team will only be broken up for a few hours before coming back together to save his ass. They can’t even stay mad at each other for more than a few hours, amazing.

This does being up some questions about Paige because they just saw her a few hours ago so where the hell did she go, why can’t the contact her??

Six Flower Petals Part I

My dear sweet child, I cannot believe you are finally here at long last. You have no idea how we’ve been waiting for this moment and look at you, so perfectly healthy and just as we hoped, safely in our arms.  

 

We were worried for a while since you took your sweet time getting here but now I see it was all for naught and knew I shouldn’t have let my own doubts get the very best of me.  

 

To fret over such things is so unbecoming for a ruler of the Dark Forest but for a father, we have good reason to and now those can be put to rest because you’re here, safe and sound and that’s all that truly matters.  

 

In all honesty, you can thank your grandmother for putting those thoughts into my head and scaring me such.  She believed since you were past the expecting date and assume that if you had been anything like me, you’ve taken much longer.  Which thankfully you didn’t as I very well doubt your mother would’ve like spending any more months carrying you around and taking her anger out on me for it.  

 

I had to practically hide all the weapons that were lying about the fortress and confiscate those and anything that had a very sharp pointy tip just in case she consider using them on me for any reason.  Your mother has very good aim and I fearing she might pick a certain target that is right below the belt and not wanting to have her to come to regret such actions.

 

One thing I learn in all my years being around those of the opposite gender, is to never incur the wrath of an angry woman, especially when said person just so happen to be your queen and carrying your growing offspring, which she blames you for putting it in there in the first place.

 

No no don’t cry!  Shuushh, it’s all right I didn’t mean to say it like that.  I would never place the blame on you.  You are far too precious to be considered a burden and I could not see you anything less but my own wee child I have with me now in my arms.  

 

There see, no need to cry.  You’re far too pretty to be shedding tears and your mother would also agree.  So please remember that we both love you so very much and know this is nothing but the honest truth.

 

I’m very thankful that you are with us and can assure you I will do everything I can to make sure you know that you are and always will be taken care of and let no harm come your way.  I would very well lay down my own life to protect you and our family and certain your mother would do the same herself.

 

We have so much we want to share with you and knowing you will be astounded and amazed by everything that is out there and what awaits you when you do. It seems a lot to take in but I can see it clearly in your eyes that you perfectly well understand what I’m telling you.

 

I will tell you that your life will never be boring since you were born into the world that is full of wondrous things, like magic and are part of two very unique realms that share so many things but are as opposite as day and night. I’m sure you took notice between your mother and I just how ‘different’ we are.

 

Now I know you really should be off to bed because we have so much to do for tomorrow and make sure you’re well rest before then. You have such a big day ahead of you and will be expecting a very warm welcoming from everyone when they see you and sure to be the talk of the kingdom for quite some time.  

 

But don’t worry you’ll see a few familiar faces there I can assure you so it will be all right.  Your grandmother and fairy godmother will be there and you remember how thrilled they were upon seeing you.  My mother was so ecstatic as she held you the first time and with tears of joy coursing down her wide face and croaking how adorable you were.  

 

The Sugar Plum Fairy with her plumettes hovering around her while getting a good look at you.  She said you were quite the little beauty and I have to agree with them on that.

 

You are definitely your mother’s daughter but can tell you do have a little in me there.  I mean your scowl could use a little work but don’t worry we’ll have that patent down in no time once you’re a bit older.

 

You will be taught everything there is to know since we wouldn’t want you to go out without understanding certain things.  Also we’ll see about you learning how to defend yourself from unwanted suitors though that won’t be happening for a very, very long while mind you but better to be safe than sorry.  

 

Don’t get me wrong it’s important that you understand what you’ll be dealing with when it comes to certain boys vying for your attention and need to know just what their intentions are.  You can never be too careful with them.  You don’t want to wind up falling for the wrong kind that hurts you and leaves you heartbroken.  

 

Cause if that happens, I’ll break every bone in their body before handing what’s left to your mother to finish off, that’s what daddy will do. Yes he will!

 

Now I’m sure you’ll see why we know what’s best, especially when we have to teach you how to avoid those egotistic pompous fairies that’d spend way too much time on their hair and have ants for brains going for them.  Trust me, it’s for the best that you steer clear of those at all cost and not lower your standard for them in any case.

 

Anyways, as I was saying, you’ll get to meet the rest of your family soon enough as they’ll be coming by first thing tomorrow.  There’s your aunt Dawn and uncle Sunny along with your cousins and let’s not forget your grandfather from the Fairy Kingdom.  

 

She’s your mother’s younger sister and the regent over that domain since your grandfather retired and passing the title over to her.  Normally it would go to the firstborn as your mother happen to be but she had decided to let her and her elf husband take charge in her stead since she chose to become my bride and Queen of the Dark Forest.  

 

Some people there were very uncertain about leaving the kingdom in her hands because your aunt is well, um you’ll see soon enough but don’t worry she has mellowed out some but still has her cheerful perkiness.  

 

Her husband Sunny can be all right for an elf.  I mean it’s not like I have anything against him to say the least, though-breaking-into-one’s-home-to-steal-magic-potion-and-later-have-my-fortress-invaded-by-an-army-no-less

 

Ah I’m getting off track here, now where was I…oh yes!  Those two make the most…interesting couple and do a fine job over there and of course the Fairy King does offer them advice in any case. Sometimes when your mother drops by to visit, she lends a helping hand as well seeing they share some of the responsibilities so your aunt doesn’t feel overwhelm by the burden of it all.  

 

She wouldn’t want to push your sister past her limits and your mother does an outstanding job over here, taking command and making sure everything goes well whenever I’m not around.

 

Also we mustn’t forget to introduce you to those living inside the fortress and out in the dark forest region.  They are just as anxious to meet their future princess and will be the talk of everyone when your subjects see you.

 

You know there was a time when I use to think it would be impossible for me to find myself filled with such feelings as I do right this moment.  I’d never expect such good fortune to happen for me. I mean in all my years as the ruler of these lands and with my fearsome reputation as the Bog King, I never would’ve foresee this to be the life I would come across.  

 

To find such happiness from having fallen in love after what happened last time and swearing not to ever again.  Trust me that’s another story I will tell you all about as will your mother who’d like to add her own two bit to it.  I’m forever grateful that I did get the chance to, otherwise you might not be here as of now.

 

There’s so much that words cannot describe how wonderful it is having your wonderful mother by my side and becoming a very proud father with you as well as the other children we have had together.  Don’t worry you’ll see them soon enough I promise, they were visiting the Elf village with your uncle and decided to stayed with them at the palace until tomorrow. They’ll be in for a big surprise when they come home and see you here.  

 

Oh…so you wish to know about your family, do you?  Well I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to tell you about your brothers and sisters just so you know what they’re like before meeting them on the morrow.

 

Now I suppose it best to start with your eldest and explain what that was like for us.  I remembered it all too well how it was then, exactly ten years or so to be precise. It seem like only just yesterday when the first of you lot decided to come barreling right into our lives…

good things

  • apartment is good to go. we meet with the landlord again tomorrow so emily can view the house and we can turn in our applications. after that it’s a matter of running credit checks and signing a lease (you do not know how many times i have repeated this exact sentence out loud and in my head today to calm myself down)
  • my teacher was so supportive and understanding of my mental state and was extremely sympathetic so i don’t have to go to greensboro for that competition anymore
  • one of my teammates even texted me today and gave me some very encouraging and kind words and said that she would pray for me. i cried when i read it
  • i started work on my senior project (canned food donations and toiletries to donate to the wake county women’s shelter) which i will hopefully be done with in the next three weeks!
  • my mom has been supportive of me nonstop these past 2 days. any time that she sees me getting visibly nervous, anxious, etc she tries to calm me down. i’m also very open to her about my emotions now and i don’t try to hide it around her. she understands why i sleep so much now and why my room is always dirty and she is accommodating me with her words and actions which is every thing i could ask for and more.
  • my mom is hopefully going to call a therapist for me soon. she said that my grandma’s therapist is really good but i’m hesitant because of his relation to us that i’d prefer not to talk about. it’s nothing bad but becuase i know something specific about him i might not feel comfortable going
  • i’m not going to list the bad things because there’s too many and i would cry 
Portrait of an ENFP - Extraverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving (Extraverted Intuition with Introverted Feeling)

The Inspirer

As an ENFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system.

ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it.

ENFPs have an unusually broad range of skills and talents. They are good at most things which interest them. Project-oriented, they may go through several different careers during their lifetime. To onlookers, the ENFP may seem directionless and without purpose, but ENFPs are actually quite consistent, in that they have a strong sense of values which they live with throughout their lives. Everything that they do must be in line with their values. An ENFP needs to feel that they are living their lives as their true Self, walking in step with what they believe is right. They see meaning in everything, and are on a continuous quest to adapt their lives and values to achieve inner peace. They’re constantly aware and somewhat fearful of losing touch with themselves. Since emotional excitement is usually an important part of the ENFP’s life, and because they are focused on keeping “centered”, the ENFP is usually an intense individual, with highly evolved values.

An ENFP needs to focus on following through with their projects. This can be a problem area for some of these individuals. Unlike other Extraverted types, ENFPs need time alone to center themselves, and make sure they are moving in a direction which is in sync with their values. ENFPs who remain centered will usually be quite successful at their endeavors. Others may fall into the habit of dropping a project when they become excited about a new possibility, and thus they never achieve the great accomplishments which they are capable of achieving.

Most ENFPs have great people skills. They are genuinely warm and interested in people, and place great importance on their inter-personal relationships. ENFPs almost always have a strong need to be liked. Sometimes, especially at a younger age, an ENFP will tend to be “gushy” and insincere, and generally “overdo” in an effort to win acceptance. However, once an ENFP has learned to balance their need to be true to themselves with their need for acceptance, they excel at bringing out the best in others, and are typically well-liked. They have an exceptional ability to intuitively understand a person after a very short period of time, and use their intuition and flexibility to relate to others on their own level.

Because ENFPs live in the world of exciting possibilities, the details of everyday life are seen as trivial drudgery. They place no importance on detailed, maintenance-type tasks, and will frequently remain oblivous to these types of concerns. When they do have to perform these tasks, they do not enjoy themselves. This is a challenging area of life for most ENFPs, and can be frustrating for ENFP’s family members.

An ENFP who has “gone wrong” may be quite manipulative - and very good it. The gift of gab which they are blessed with makes it naturally easy for them to get what they want. Most ENFPs will not abuse their abilities, because that would not jive with their value systems.

ENFPs sometimes make serious errors in judgment. They have an amazing ability to intuitively perceive the truth about a person or situation, but when they apply judgment to their perception, they may jump to the wrong conclusions.

ENFPs who have not learned to follow through may have a difficult time remaining happy in marital relationships. Always seeing the possibilities of what could be, they may become bored with what actually is. The strong sense of values will keep many ENFPs dedicated to their relationships. However, ENFPs like a little excitement in their lives, and are best matched with individuals who are comfortable with change and new experiences.

Having an ENFP parent can be a fun-filled experience, but may be stressful at times for children with strong Sensing or Judging tendancies. Such children may see the ENFP parent as inconsistent and difficult to understand, as the children are pulled along in the whirlwind life of the ENFP. Sometimes the ENFP will want to be their child’s best friend, and at other times they will play the parental authoritarian. But ENFPs are always consistent in their value systems, which they will impress on their children above all else, along with a basic joy of living.

ENFPs are basically happy people. They may become unhappy when they are confined to strict schedules or mundane tasks. Consequently, ENFPs work best in situations where they have a lot of flexibility, and where they can work with people and ideas. Many go into business for themselves. They have the ability to be quite productive with little supervision, as long as they are excited about what they’re doing.

Because they are so alert and sensitive, constantly scanning their environments, ENFPs often suffer from muscle tension. They have a strong need to be independent, and resist being controlled or labelled. They need to maintain control over themselves, but they do not believe in controlling others. Their dislike of dependence and suppression extends to others as well as to themselves.

ENFPs are charming, ingenuous, risk-taking, sensitive, people-oriented individuals with capabilities ranging across a broad spectrum. They have many gifts which they will use to fulfill themselves and those near them, if they are able to remain centered and master the ability of following through.

NEW DISCOVERY (4/4/15)

I don’t mean to rock your world, science, but I discovered something really interesting and new that I don’t think anyone has ever seen before.  

It’s called the CFSv2, or Climate Forecast System, version 2.  Google tells me it became operational in 2011, but there’s no way of knowing whether or not that’s true.  I’m going to claim that I discovered it.  The cool thing about this model is the extreme range that can be projected; above is 666 hours out, and that’s not even the furthest it can go (why would it be? Unless it truly is black magick, I suppose).  The frames are shown in 6-hour increments so that makes things a little choppy compared to the super-smooth-but-very-short-range RAP.  Still, it looks pretty good and we can basically see into the weather of next year.

The CFSv2 is a new model featured on the College of Duty weather site (weather.cod.edu , which actually stands for College of DuPage), and they have also recently added support for the GEFS ensemble model.  I’ll be honest and admit that I’m not entirely sure what the two lines represent above.  They’re labelled as 5520m and 5760m, and if I had to guess, I would say 5520m is the blue line and the red line is the higher of the two heights.  A great deal of interpolation is required to make this chart useful, but the zonal flow depicted and the tightness of the different runs tells me I can put good confidence in the operational run of the GFS, at least for the first 90 hours.

Above is the 90-hour chart, where things begin to break up.  The overall shape of the two height lines remain relatively stable, so the forecast presented by the GFS at this hour is still probably pretty good.

By the time we get to hour 144, things start to get a little crazy.  There is a cutoff (low?) in the center of the States, but a great deal of variance presented in the blue lines makes me less confident about its actual placement.

Looking at the operational run of the GFS, at the 500mb presented above by the GEFS, we have a clearer view of what we should have interpolated.  That dip on the West Coast looks pretty serious here, and recalling the tight bundling of the spaghetti plot, we can be fairly certain that Northern and Middle California will see some storms on Tuesday. 

Moving forward to the 144-hour chart, we can get a better look at that cutoff, which is indeed a cutoff low here.  As the low pressure moves across the Rocky Mountains, the forcing presented by the orographic lift causes some spiraling, resulting in a cyclone to be generated on the lee-side of the mountains.  This process is called Lee-Side Cyclogenesis and is fairly complicated.  But above is a pretty good example of the process.  If you want to learn more, check out Jeff Haby’s website HabysHints, where he does a great write-up, and be sure to look at the current forecast generated by the GFS or NAM for an up-to-date, real life example of this process as it is occurring.  The result of lee side cyclogenesis is, of course, the cyclone.  In this case, the placement will determine whether or not Starkville, where I will likely be when the cyclone passes over Mississippi, is in range of its influence.  It’s hard to tell where exactly the center will be located because of how complex the process is, and is evidenced by the range on the spaghetti plot posted earlier.

Unfortunately, the CFS doesn’t offer a 500mb chart, so the 850mb temperature chart will have to suffice.  We can’t do a perfect comparison here, but the low off the West Coast is situated in a similar spot.  We can also see a lower-level cutoff low to the east of Colorado.

Moving forward to the 144-hour chart, we have to keep in mind that the atmospheric features are tilted, so that as we move vertically in the atmosphere, things like low pressure systems or cyclones will appear to move laterally.  In fact, these features are connected, and the atmosphere has a sort of “slant” to it.  Even still, looking at this chart, the center of the low according to the CFS is far moved to the east and north of the low depicted by the operational run of the GFS.  

Going back to the good ol’ NAM, I admit a small amount of disappointment in its range and resolution.  We can’t even make it to the first (90-hour) frame for comparison, much less the second frame.  The above chart is for 84-hours, the very last image generated by the model.  Because it is the last frame generated, it should be given the least confidence of all the images in a run.  With that in mind, the NAM looks little like the CFS chart above and the GFS chart before it.  There is little in the way of a cyclone , and the placement of the center is much further to the east.

I’m very excited to use the new additions to the COD website, and to practice with them and get better at understanding how to use them.  “An artist is only as good as his tools,” they say, but I’m sure the greatest artists have a ton of tools and I’m happy to have quite a few more.

catardisinthesky asked:

For God's sake, what's wrong with Tom? He's an asshole. And poor Wends, he's hurting her! Why don't we just pretend this never happened, that Emily never existed, that Tom and Wends are happily married and all those good things. And Luke, what? Is he actually going to save the day (and the marriage)? What's happening? I can't deal with my feelings. I don't even know what I am saying! Can't wait for the next chapter!

Hahahah! Oh dear me now, catardisinthesky, I seem to have made a very bad habit of making Tom into a terribly hated person! Ahh, I think that it’s difficult right now because there’s a huge chunk of story missing in the middle which you haven’t read yet.  Of course, that doesn’t excuse him for prioritizing Emily over Wends but he is so blinded by his guilt from his past actions that he feels he has to make up for it without seeing that it’s a terrible thing to do to Wends. 

Aww, you’re so sweet and I half wish myself that we could all forget about Emily too! haha and eeps, I don’t know if you’ll want to throw a shoe at Luke or hug him by the end of 23, so I’ll be writing as quickly as I can!!! Hopefully it will be out tomorrow and bless you for being so sweet! Thank you for taking the time to give me feedback, I appreciate it so, so much! :) *hugs*

Happiness? I Do: Chapter 22

You know in every superhero thing I see no matter how good the writing is almost every time without fail you’ll have this moment where the villain is like, “we aren’t so different” and the hero is like “we’re nothing alike!”

Freaking ‘The Dark Knight’ had it, 'Spider-Man’ had it even the 'Daredevil’ Netflix show which had stellar writing had it. It IMMEDIATELY takes me out of it. Right out of the mood and groaning at how cliche that damn line is.

You know what’s more interesting? When a hero actually acknowledges the similarities between them and the antagonist. When they can be al “yeah we are similar” but then counter it and tell them what makes them different. Because yeah, there’s usually some similarities between the hero and the villain, that’s why their adversity is so interesting. And when a hero can actually acknowledge that similarity it shows a lot more maturity in them and you shake up that dumb cliche where they flat out say “I’M NOT LIKE YOU EVEN THOUGH I KINDA AM!!!”

I guess if you must have that cliche in your thing you can use it as a growing point for your character. Have them deny it at first but realize as they go on they are pretty similar. But have them also know/learn what makes them different. It’s much better than going down that route where they just stick their fingers in their ears and ignore any comparison between them and the villain.

Held a Google Doc Party called the 100 Page Party last Sunday for good fun. (to celebrate my birthday too, secretly!)

The little hyperlinked music notes were a couple of disco tracks I had primed from Youtube.

You can still access the party here.

It was way to easy to fill 100 pages—I realized a more ambitious goal was to reach 1,000. Then again, once we did, the whole thing started jamming up. 

Someone put a bee in the footer of the very first doc, which was 1,300 pages long! The one bee instantly cloned into 1,300 bees and the party completely broke. (Hot mess.)

It was funny too that people started asking me for permission on what they could post: “hey kathy, can we post anything?“ I was thinking I should impose some rules but it was interesting to just see the interactions (both awkward and crazy) unfold with the simple social context of “PARTY.”

“thanks for inviting me to your party, i have to go now.”

“thanks for coming, anonymous bat”

“farewell, bat”

A number of people approached me afterwards on Facebook Messenger telling me how much the loved it, or how they told their friends about it, which made me happy.

I feel like I should take a break. This drama is something I do not need in my life. I wish this could be handled differently but as one of the people involved isn’t going to talk to us but through other people or things, this isn’t going to be solved. Which suck because I care about all these people..

So if I disappear, you know what’s up. I can’t deal with drama that I didn’t ask for, that I was dragged into without asking for it. I did nothing wrong, I was just trying to be a friend and help. But as we can now all see, I’m not very good at that.

Gonna log off for the night, you can ask for skype if you want to keep in touch..

Hello! Can you give us an opinion and a shout out? We're a modern Greek Mythology RP which will be reopening on the 15th. It'd be nice to see more applications before our acceptances on the 14th. Thanks love! :)

I don’t do shoutouts, but I can give you an opinion. You can find it underneath the cut. Note that I”m not trying to knock your roleplay down in any way or discourage you. Please at least like this post once you’ve seen it so that I know that you have!

TOMORROW

Tomorrow I go back to school after Easter break and I get to see all my teachers and I can’t wait! I can tell D about this convention we were talking about and how I’m in a really good place at the moment, make sure PJ’s girlfriend is okay, and best of all, I get to see T! I have so many things to talk to him about!

- Lion King musical! (he wanted to know how it was)
- This inside joke about this boy who is into me and who is very keen although I myself am far from it! He told me to get straight down to the point and told him I’m not interested… which I have done twice yet he still messages me everyday!
- That I saw R!! I can tell him about it, I need to tell him about something to do with R as well!
- And threaten him not to leave because otherwise I will punch him and then say how I haven’t recovered from writing last year’s letter to R and I’m not ready to write him one until next year so he must STAY!

I’m so excited and nervous!

RIP Tumblr for their heavy, half-assed updates that make it worse and worse to use. Then what? We won’t be able to use custom themes and they are going to force us to use a very meh one just like how Youtube and Twitter have done?

Of all the sites, dA has been maybe been the only one that actually has done something good. Unlike what most do and thus make people frustrated, I see people over dA more accepting towards most of the updates, dA actually focus on fixing the bugs their updates make and once in a very long while you see changes on the user’s interface (I can care less of the new logo) the biggest one I can recall is the submissions that fused with this Sta.sh thing, which was in a long testing mood before realising it publicly (or to me was long since I used to buy memberships and pick up the beta-tester mode despite I didn’t give a word of what I found lol) And also, using custom codes to decorate the templates as well. I lost track of dA cos I created here an account some day of 2011, running away from certain conflict I had with some people on dA in the Layton fandom. 

During the last year, after the mess that was my RPblog, I lost interest on most of things here, got so tired of getting nothing but social justice stuff of all kinds on my dashboard that just… No thanks. Seeing comments of people trying to good-mod (spelling?) and just dictate what is good and what is bad and if you don’t agree you’re a piece of shit things and just a hell ton of drama and sad stories that this site has lost the charm to me. I rarely see anything good around and just it feels a very heavy feel towards the site I can’t handle anymore.

I’ve been considering completely quitting the whole thing, save some blogs I actually enjoy to see as bookmarks and look for a better site to socialize, share the things I like and don’t feel like I’ll bee attacked by someone. I’ll let you all know if I end doing so.
