Haven Craft’s Tips for Beginner Witches, Part One

Tips for Beginner Witches

Let’s start with this – I am not the witch Pope. I cannot speak for the witchcraft community as a whole; only for my own tradition.

5 Things I Believe Beginner Witches Should Ask Themselves

Note that the answers to these things will change, but that a firm grasp of the answers at any point in your practice may be helpful to you. I recommend actually writing your answers down, and every now and again check back and see if your stance has shifted.

1. Is magick real?

If yes, then what do you mean when you say, “Magick is real”. (Do you mean that you can effect reality with your will, intent, and energy? Do you mean like, Harry Potter real? What will disappoint you to realize might not be probable? What will inspire you to realize you can accomplish?)

2. Where are your lines? (What do you firmly believe is true/false, right/wrong? Violence, doing harm, controlling others, etc. Would you punch someone if they threatened a friend? Would you curse someone if they threatened a friend? What would you do, if your coven head told you it was right but you felt it was wrong?)

3. What are you looking for in a magickal path? (Pro Tip – no one has all the answers and there is no one right way.)

4. What are you prepared to do in order to accomplish your goals? (How many spoons do you have to give this practice? Can you devote one night a week, are you going to randomly pick stuff up on Tumblr, are you going to leave society to pursue your studies under a waterfall, etc.)


I recommend that no one make any oaths or vows in their first year of practice. Get to know yourself, how you feel about magick, and what you actually want to do before you do any big commitments. (Historic anecdote – this is what the original year and a day was for.) More strident, but still personal, recommendation: if someone tries to get you to oath to them within your first week of being a witch, run.


Things People Should Tell Beginner Witches, But Often Don’t

1. Don’t be afraid to change your mind.

2. Don’t throw good energy after bad by continuing to do something that isn’t right for you.

3. Don’t be afraid to continue your education, even if that means learning something that was right for you before is no longer right for you.

4. There is no one right way to do this. There is no Witch Pope - there is no dogmatic enforcement of the path to being a witch.

5. There are absolutely as many assholes in Paganism and witchcraft as there are anywhere else. Don’t think that these people are all spiritually enlightened beings who mean you well and who will give good advice.

6. Yahoo Answers is not your friend. You have the internet – which has access to both all of human information and all of human misinformation. Look for credible sources. Anything that seems too easy or too good to be true probably is. Work on critical thinking.

7. Try Scholar.Google.Com over “this article says so on Patheos.com.” Seriously, recently an article on there claimed Friday the 13th was a sacred holiday in goddess centered pre-Christian Paganism before the patriarchy ruined it. There is no historical validation for that, but a bunch of witches reblogged it. (Things you learn from scholarly sources rather than the latest poorly edited Llewellyn mess: the Burning Times didn’t happen, different kinds of Pagans warred amongst themselves long before Christianity came onto the scene, there was no great unified Pagan religion before Christianity, and Gerald Gardner was probably lying about almost everything he said.)


You Should Probably Learn the Difference Between Paganism, Wicca, and Witchcraft

What is Paganism?

Pagan is an umbrella term for a member of a religious, spiritual, or cultural community, other than those of the main world religions, so:

Non-Abrahamic – it is not Christian, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, or Mormon

Non-Eastern – it is not Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Sufism, or Sikhism

Theistic – The belief in some kind of divine power, which is sometimes polytheistic (a belief in more than one god), but not always

Some Pagans practice witchcraft – others do not.

This definition isn’t quite right, though it’s in hugely common usage, because there are Abrahamic and Eastern persons who consider themselves Pagan. Keep in mind that there will be exceptions to this definition and that those exceptions are valid.

There are also secular Pagans, so it isn’t even always Theistic. I know – it’s complicated. Though this is the largely accepted Academic definition, it doesn’t really work when applied to the real world, if you’re considering someone saying, “I’m Pagan” as a self-identifying definition, which I do. 

Wicca

Wicca is a religion. Most people consider Wicca as falling under the Paganism umbrella, although not all Pagans are Wiccan. Not all Wiccans are witches, and not all witches are Wiccan.

Wiccan is generally defined as:

Dualistic – There is a God and a Goddess

Pacifistic – Wicca has a rede that requires Wiccan do no harm to themselves or others, though not all Wiccans (such as those who follow Doreen Valiente’s suggested guidelines) are Pacifistic, so there are definitely exceptions to this

Earth-based – Having a respect for and acknowledgment of the powers of the Earth

Witchcraft

The spiritual or secular art, craft, and/or practice of the witch, defined many ways by many different people.

A witch is a witch who says they are one.

Again, there is no witch Pope and no witchy excommunication because you define yourself as a witch differently than someone else does.

Yes, male identifying and/or presenting persons can be witches.


Pagan and Witch Fallacies

There are certain ideas that most beginners in the witchcraft community will encounter over and over again. I’m going to run down some things – with the reminder, again, that I can only speak for my personal tradition.

1. “You should remove all negative influences from your life! You should purge all negative feelings! Be positive all the time!” Not everything that is negative is bad. Not everything negative can be avoided – we can’t all just quit our jobs and live in a witch shack in the mountains. We have to endure negative things, both because it is healthier to experience the full range of human emotion rather than to ignore a large chunk of it, and because it isn’t possible. What we should do is stop victim blaming witches who are going through hard times and stop telling witches they can’t be angry when they encounter something that should be angering.

2. “But, tradition!” Just because an affluent white guy in the 1400-1600s said something, doesn’t mean you should do it. We don’t follow their medicinal advice anymore; we don’t have to follow their magickal advice either. Seriously, I don’t care if tradition says a trans woman shouldn’t be in a sky clad ritual – that’s bullshit. We don’t put leeches on our bodies anymore – let’s leave the past nonsense where it belongs.

3. “We have to make sure everyone feels included and welcome!” Not if they abuse the welcome of others, we do not. The problem with making some people feel included and welcome is that you make their victims feel excluded and unwelcome because you’ve made them unsafe.

4. “We have to support each other and love each other and be a positive force in people’s lives.” Okay, yes, in small doses, this is a great aim. It doesn’t work for everyone (some witches are spite and malice fueled and they are still witches), but okay, it’s a nice idea. Until it becomes ableist or demands free emotional labor from people, which it often does.

5. “We have to educate them!” Okay, it’s great that there is this effort in the community to educate others. But if you don’t have the spoons or if it seems like they’re using the demand for their own education as a way to still have access to a community they are abusing, then no, you have no obligation to put their education over your well being. None. They have access to Google (even if they have to go to a library to use it.)

6. “You have to earn your right to be a witch.” No, no you don’t. Seriously, though, from whom? Dusty white men in graves? A Llewellyn author who couldn’t fact check themselves out of a paper bag? Again – no witch Pope. I’m just gonna keep pointing out the lack of a witch Pope until people get it.

7. “You have to be ________ rank, degree, etc. to have an opinion on this topic.” Yeah, okay, I’ll be sure to wave my certificate in your face before having an opinion on my own tradition. No. Your opinion may be an uneducated one and you may be corrected for it, but that doesn’t mean that you didn’t have the right to it before you completed your O levels at Hogwarts.

8. As a corollary to above, “This is just my opinion and you can’t be mad at me for it!” People absolutely have a right to their opinions. And everyone else the right to decide those opinions make them an asshole.

9. “I’m super special and powerful because xyz, which means I get to tell you what to do.” People only get to tell you what to do if you let them. Sometimes, that’s an exchange we willingly make, but other times, people will feel they have the right to tell you what to do because they are a hereditary witch or because they’ve been practicing longer. Just remember – their position doesn’t trump your humanity and you don’t have to kiss the feet of someone who kicks you.

10. “The person really wants _____ from you, and you should help them on their path. Helping them on their path helps you on yours!” Just because someone wants something from you, doesn’t mean they get it. Being a witch doesn’t take away your right to say no.  


Please remember that you don’t have to earn your right to be here. This one is tricky on some level – to be the respected person in your community, you need to put in your time. However, in order to be part of a group you don’t need to give the High Priest a blow job (seriously, run).

You don’t have to earn admission to witchcraft, but you do have to earn specific positions and other people’s trust. If you teach people not to trust you through your actions, they won’t trust you.

Mikhail Pivnev’s homemade firearms and knives some of which he used during the attack at his school on September 5, 2017.

Photos of his arsenal he sent to many girls on vk.com. One of them is teenager who created a slav tcc group and made posts with true crime info (probably yours) from tumblr. She personally communicated with Mikhail. And unfortunately I talked with her too. She is edgy af, supporting the Mikhail’s action and protecting him on the Internet. She probably knew about his plans, and I am so sad about it. What’s wrong with these kids?

top 5 oikawa gifs xD ((btw i love your blog + edits <33))

How…is….a person…supposed….to choose…RIP

1. This is the only one I’m 100% sure about, it has been my header for the longest time and I still adore it

2. This is so painful what am I even doing (yes, this is THE LAST toss of Oikawa’s high school career, and it was aimed at Iwaizumi. Of course)

3. I could watch him serve all day every day until the end of time 

4. SCRUNCY POUTY FACE 

5. So beautiful I’m crying this is probably one of my favorite shots of him in the entire series

- bonus: since you didn’t specify which Oikawa you were talking about, let’s have my favorite gif of stage play Oikawa too for good measure

Ask me my top 5 things!

anonymous asked:

Hi, what exactly is Stargate (like, what is the plot, how many seasons, that kind of thing)? I've seen it mentioned in combination with Leverage in some of your posts, and I've sort of picked up some of the character names from being on the internet, but I'm still not sure what it actually is. Thanks!!

What a delightful question that I’m going to have a ridiculous amount of fun answering, probably using too many gifs.

First, the bare bones facts: Stargate is a franchise that began with the 1994 movie Stargate, which was then developed into the TV show Stargate: SG-1 which began in 1997 and picked up about a year after the movie ended. SG-1 had 10 seasons and 2 made-for-TV movies. There are also 2 spinoffs, Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate: Universe. Atlantis has 5 seasons, and its first season coincides with season 8 of SG-1, with both beginning in 2004, with some fun but not strictly essential crossover between the two. Universe has 2 seasons and began in 2009, after both SG-1 and Atlantis had ended. I mostly blog about SG-1, but I enjoy all three shows and will at least briefly explain Atlantis and Universe in the course of this post, FOR FUNSIES.

The basic premise of the whole thing is that there are these devices (built by aliens, OF COURSE) called Stargates, which create wormholes that allow for basically instantaneous travel between planets all throughout the Milky Way (and other galaxies as well, it turns out, but that’s later).

The movie involves the US Air Force, with the help of the BEST FICTIONAL ARCHAEOLOGIST IN EXISTENCE FIGHT ME, figuring out how to work the Stargate, using it to travel to another planet, and helping the locals overthrow the evil parasitic alien who was posing as the Egyptian god Ra in order to enslave them.

SG-1 starts with Earth humans learning that “Ra” actually belonged to an entire race of evil parasitic aliens who used the personas of various gods to enslave humans throughout the galaxy. At which point, NATURALLY, the plucky Earth humans say “fuck that shit” and also “ooh, a whole galaxy to explore, HOLD MY BEER” and start having adventures and liberating the galaxy.

Atlantis is about Earth humans finally discovering the lost city of Atlantis over in another galaxy, and the adventures and struggles they have setting up a colony there. Also, space vampires.

Universe is about a bunch of Earth humans accidentally stranding themselves aboard an alien-built spaceship that is going they don’t know where in order to find the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. It’s much darker and more sort of psychological than the other two shows. Also more diverse. I like it a lot, but for different reasons than I like SG-1 and Atlantis.

SG-1 owns my heart, because it’s the show that helped me fall in love with sci-fi. Also, it has Dr. Daniel Jackson. It wrestles with what it means to be human and ethics and all kinds of really good shit. It’s not perfect, and the early seasons especially have some pretty major issues with sexism and white savior complexes in certain episodes, but overall I personally find it more than worth it, and the main reason is the characters, who you now get to hear me yell about my love for.

Anti theory time

This post is going to be a longer one but with different sections to break it up a bit, per loose theory bits and I’ll try and keep it organized. Includes images woo! Gifs and images are compiled by me (first tries at video gifs yay). But without further ado!

1. At PAX Anti sported two, very deliberately, neck stab wounds. Maybe from one jab, maybe two. (That they are stab wounds is sortof confirmed by a post from @wubkins that Jack liked). And the placement is rather suspicious, its right where the vocal cords are.

Why the vocal cords? Most likely to shut Jack up and to not get interrupted during his little message to us (but Jack did try though with a very broken ‘Help me’). And Anti probably doesn’t need vocal cords anyway since he is most likely some kind of spirit/ghost/entity capable of 'out of body’ speech.

2. What kind of being could he be? The Tulpa has been going around as a theory and Jack himself has said that it’s fairly accurate (answered in an ask). A section of the Wikipedia page about it gives this bit:

'Playing the part of a real being’ is the part that creeps me out the most. Anti pretending to be Jack, slowly taking over the channel. People find it difficult to distinguish between them.

But despite Anti being the chameleon that he is, he is not flawless in his doings. He gets impatient very quickly, is often very rude and more aggressive than Jack. Absolutely loves violence. Going as far as wanting to chop off fingers for fun (EVERYTHING IS AGONY | Clone Drone #5).

Full Wikipedia Tulpa link here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulpa It’s quite the interesting read. Heck, I could fill another whole paragraph about this stuff haha.

But where did Anti come from? Another part of the Wikipedia page says that Tulpa’s are generated by a powerful concentration of thought. Who’s thoughts in the case of Anti? The community? It might have started when the community started drawing/imagining/writing about a counterpart to Jack, his anti version. That was most likely the start of the inevitable snowball that accelerated during the October of 2016 and on Halloween itself Anti 'solidified’, was powerful enough, thanks to the attention the community gave him, to take over. “You could have stopped me, but you just watched, as this happened”.

He then proceeds to brag about Jack being gone forever but that might not be the case. Anti has taken over Jacks body but Jack is still around, in the background, crying out for help. Or in the case of the intro of EVERYTHING IS AGONY | Clone Drone #5, shouting stuff to Anti about what not to do. Two 'souls’ in one body kind of thing.

3. Glitchverse and dimension breaking. What exactly are the glitches that Anti is doing? Just video glitches or something more.

Anti does like his 'green’ dimension a lot, as well as fades/cuts to black. During these bits the viewer can’t see what is happening. During these blackouts the switch between Jack and Anti seems to happen a lot. Also during the blackout of the Detention episode the character went through a door with doors usually being the symbol for gateways. Might be a far stretch with the blackouts but it has happened quite a few times. Down below are gifs of the several blackouts, in chronological order of appearance.

4. Anti’s message at PAX. Ohboy. This was just brilliant. I attended the livestream and when Jack mentioned the participation thing, I too grabbed my phone to start recording but then Anti said hi. After finishing recording and getting hyped from that and watching the panel itself I did not think much of it at first. But the day after I realized something, why did Anti wanted that we record him…? Now I don’t know if there are any Whovians around but my mind immediately strayed to the Doctor Who episodes of the The Time of Angels, where a recording of a Weeping Angel came to life. Quoting the Doctor: 'That which holds the image of an angel becomes itself an angel’.

And if that’s the case with Anti, well, he’s probably just be grinning his ass off of the fact that we just multiplied him everywhere. And are we going to delete that footage? Not likely. It was too much hype. But watch your back. '͞I͝'͝m ̛not ̕going ̀a͘nywher̡é,́ I̧'́m̨ a̶l͡wa͏y͜s t͜hére, ͏a͘l̶w͟ays̛ ̧wàt͝c͟h͞i̸ng̀'͘.

5. The glitch video montage.

Gif is at 50% percent of original speed, my brain is molten from seeing it at full speed too many times haha. @amycampbell00 did an amazing job at splicing the segment down, frame by frame, game by game over here.

It’s quite odd to think that Clustertruck, Totally Accurate Battle Simulator and Happy Wheels are in this compilation since it’s before the Halloween event but if Anti has been lurking around for some time then these series are perfect. Why? Clustertruck is a high energy game and Jack has mentioned that he gets all pumped up from it. Anti could sneakishly drain this energy from him, tiny piece by piece since he probably wouldn’t miss it anyway.

Why TABS and Happy Wheels? Well… Death, violence and gore. Again, Anti getting energy from this.

And what if the other games in the montage are the series that Anti has played/is playing. The Japan World Cup is probably one of the distraction ones, just like the Pipe Job one with a sneaky Anti at the end.

The Portal Collab and Don’t Starve ones have gotten me a tiny bit worried about Jacks friends. If they can’t tell the difference then, yikes, doomed.

Also, I’m still trying to figure out the message of the montage. The different audio segments. My feeble guess at what he says?

'Ha, ha, ha. Jack is dead, bitch. Now I’m terrified.’

First part makes kind of sense, second part, not so much. I’ve listened to the segment a heap load of times now but I’m not getting much wiser haha.

And these are my Anti theory bits for now. To anyone reading this, thank you. Also, have a cookie!

Feel free to share your thoughts about things. It’s a lot of fun going through all the theories that people have come up with so far and it gets me all excited. Good for story inspiration stuff too.

So I really like Persona 5 and I especially like the girls on the team.

some Baekhyun headcanons

You can be supportive of Normani without demeaning other people’s favorites okay?

oh my goooooooosh can you pls make a top 5 locations sidney crosby can kick my ass because i feel that shit on a personal level everyday and your geno one was just too good like i needmorebitch

top 5 locations for sidney crosby to beat my ass

5. on his little dock - cole harbour, nova scotia. reason: probably has several fishing poles with which to beat me, could easily push me off the dock and into the water, no witnesses.

4. live on TSN sportscentre - toronto, ontario. reason: can be broadcast to his many adoring fans in canada, also he would probably be able to get an “accidental” punch or two on don cherry, which is always a plus.

3. on gary bettman’s front lawn - saddle river, new jersey. reason: it sends a great message to bettman that sid will kick anyone’s ass. also proximity to bettman will surely put sid’s anger levels through the roof, ensuring a good ass-whooping.

2. the parking lot of any tim horton’s in canada. reason: sid’s powers are at their highest when he is in within 100 ft of a timmy’s. also nathan mackinnon would probably pop up at some point to help him.

1. at center ice in the middle of the Sidney Crosby Hockey School - cole harbour, nova scotia. reason: home ice advantage, lots of friends to help him, a bunch of small hockey kids cheering him on.

25.01.17 Holiday Studying

It’s my holiday, so I’m using the blank paper method to check my knowledge before I head off into 5th year. 

We had a clinical preparedness MCQ a few weeks ago that tested everything we had learnt in the past 4 years with a pass mark of 70%, and that went well (don’t have to do it again, yay!) but I still feel like there’s more that I don’t know. 

Probably won’t get through too many because I’m still enjoying my holidays, but I’ll get through a few diseases at least, which is better than nothing! :D


MY WEEKLY STUDY TIPS

WHAT I WISH I’D KNOWN BEFORE UNIVERSITY STUDY TIPS SERIES

Revance Radio~ (8th Sept 2017)

Note: I’ve skipped the front part before they start to talk about the topic. It’s a rough translation on impulse so take it easy and enjoy their nonsense!


The number of kids you would want in the future (including the gender too).

Kota: The number of kids I want in the future huh…

Kyohei: I would want 2.

Iori: That’s a fast reply. It’s Kyohei who has his life planned out well we’re talking about.

Kyohei: Well, at the least I think about my future more than you guys.

Takashi: What about the gender of the 2 kids?

Kyohei: If possible, 1 female and 1 male. It would be ideal if the eldest is a male.

Iori: That’s the opposite of Kyohei’s family structure, right?

Kyohei: Ah, it’s because I would want to instill the thing about guys protecting girls into my son. If he’s born first, I thought that would be easier for him to be aware.

Takashi: Isn’t it because of Kyohei being messed around with by Akina that you would want your son to be the eldest?

Kyohei: …well, that as well (lol)

Nagito: It’s a definite that Kyo-chan’s sister is powerful!

Kota: The other day she came into the waiting room and greeted me “Kota~ how are you!?” in a very high tension manner, I was shocked…

Kyohei: Her tension is always that high. Before that what about you guys?

Nagito: I want a girl!!

Nagito: And I want my girl to wear the clothes that I’ve made~ and then, after that, the two of us have a date on the weekends, together~

Kota: Somehow Ao, seems like an oya-baka

Kyohei: I agree (lol). Here I was thinking that if your child is a male, you would play sports together and have fun.

Nagito: Play sports with a guy huh…

Nagito: Yeah! That sounds good too! We could play basketball or something together★

Takashi: Ao’s son, sounds like he will turn out to be just like Ao…

Kota: Another Ao around… sounds tiring…

Nagito: Hey Ko-chan! Shouldn’t it be feeling happy with another me around? You aren’t being honest as usual.

Iori: How many kids would you want?

Nagito: Hmm… I have never thought of how many I want, but I would want many!

Nagito: Probably about 5…? But I definitely wouldn’t want just one, since it would be very lonely at times being alone.

Kyohei: 5 kids, ain’t that a little too many…

Iori: But it’s just like Ao said, it’s good to have siblings.

Nagito: Right? …speaking of which, how many does Iori want? Somehow I can’t imagine…

Iori: Hmm… I am fine with a male.

Kota: You want a kid huh

Iori: Of course I would want a kid of my own.

Takashi: But why male?

Iori: That’s because of female sounds troublesome…

Kyohei: So cruel…

Iori: It’s more than enough with Mikan-onna when it comes to taking care of female troubles.

Nagito: Kyaaahh! Iorin, you spoke fondly of her without hesitation~

Iori: Ao, shut up. Besides, I would want my son to grow up into a talented man like me.

Kota: Iori-kun, sounds like you would be a papa who focuses a lot on education (lol)

Iori: Really? I guess Kota seems like one who doesn’t educate the child much…

Kota: I guess I won’t be as into educating my child as Iori-kun…

Kota: But I want a kid, as much as possible a son who can play games with me would be good

Nagito: Sounds fun to play games together!

Kota: Yeah, such as a racing game. I would like my child to like gaming as well too

Takashi: Seems like Kota would be manipulated if it’s a girl…

Kyohei: Ah, I think I understand. Kind of being troubled with how to deal with her.

Kota: It could be true that I might have troubles on how to interact with my daughter

Nagito: But Ko-chan, didn’t you gave the little girl who came to our previous concert a fan service!

Kota: Handling a fan is different from handling my own child…

Kota: But for myself, I guess I would want two kids

Kyohei: I thought Kota would say that having a single child is good

Kota: When I was a child, I spent most of my time alone so I really wanted a sibling

Kota: Besides with the kind of profession I have, I might leave my child alone at times too…

Takashi: It’s surprising to hear Kota thinking ahead over such things

Kota: Then what about you, leader?

Kota: The number one person whom I can’t imagine wanting a kid.

Nagito: Hmm, you’re right I can’t imagine that for the leader! Have you thought about it before??

Takashi: I have considered it before, one girl would be good…

Takashi: I was thinking I could teach her piano.

Nagito: Don’t tell me that the leader would also go all Sparta mode on his own child…

Kota: Oh yeah… it sounds scary to get it wrong…

Takashi: There’s no way I would get angry with a kid. I would teach her patiently.

Kyohei: Uh, when it comes to music, Nina goes full on and forget about anything else so…

Iori: In the first place it seems like he would go into his devilish mode towards someone who could harm his own child

Nagito: I get it~ Hey, hey, leader, how many then?

Takashi: The number huh… It’s good to have a daughter, at the same time I think it’s not bad too to have one

Takashi: That way I would be able to raise her up with great undertaking

Nagito: That sounds just like the leader, and I realized that everyone has different views!

Kyohei: Ahh, yeah. But it’s a different case whether these delusions will come true…

Kyohei: All will be revealed in the next week’s Papa Story so won’t you look forward to them?

Kota: Oh now then I’ve realized that it’s almost time

Iori: Although the delusion talk completely went overshot, it’s time to head to our next work

Nagito: Well then, it’s great that we get to see you for a long time ♪

Nagito: Thank you for sticking around with us through this long Revance Radio! Well then, see you next week★

Revance: Bye bye!


So… We all know that Kota’s delusion didn’t come true lol. He wanted a son, but he is gonna have a daughter. Iori didn’t get his daughter either lol instead gets into a fight with his son. Nagito gets a son as well but he said it’s all right with him since he can play sports like basketball with him. Takashi got his wish of wanting a daughter. And Kyohei, his too for wanting a son as the eldest.

Can’t wait for the stories!!! First to be released would be Kyohei’s. Anticipating how it would go~

Why furries should be added to lgbt!

1. We are totally oppressed. We are hated by a so many and being added to this could really help out our community.
2. Furry is a gender. Many people think we are a fandom but I personally identify as a fire duck.
3. So little people are uncultured about furries. We often get asked “what are furries” which shows that not many people are aware of what they are. Being added to lgbt would be good to help understand what we are.
4. Lgbt is for all genders and sexualities yet us furries are not in there.
5. People hate us furries but are super supportive of lgbt+ and other genders. Adding us too lgbt could bring a lot of support and would probably help us furries feel more secure about coming out.

anonymous asked:

heyy I love your fics! I also wanted to ask what you think will happen in the leah book? personally i'm really hoping that she and abbey will get together because becky said it was a relationship 'the fans wanted' or something along those lines, or do you think that's completely unrealistic? again, well done on your fics they're seriously all adorable!

Hi!! Thank you so much omg! 

Leah book! Let’s start out with what we know so far (from twitter stalking):

  • Leah is the MC. She’s Bi. She has known since she was 11. 
  • Leah is a Slytherin. (I don’t know if this is relevant, but it goes on the list)
  • The book takes place in Senior Year and is a sequel to Simon.
  • Prom is going to be a thing. there are going to be promposals. Becky was told she had to “scale back the Simon and Bram promposal”. aka, my heart. 
  • Leah’s father disappeared with a 19 year old hottie, he could be a plot point (in Simon vs.)
  • there’s a kissing scene that someone (who i would assume to be Leah) says “Holy Shit, I’m so Happy.” - at least it sounds like a Leah thing to say. 
  • actual tweet: “draft 1 of the Leah book is basically 40k words of Simon Spier getting trolled by Leah, Abby, and Blue.”
  • Nick is a hot mess in this book.
  • It doesn’t look like Simon and Bram will break up in the book. tweet: “…you’ll see more of them being happy together in my third book!” 
  • Garrett will have a bigger role in Leah’s book, but she says not to get too attached to Garrett&Leah
  • Becky tweeted in a reply about Martin that Garrett and Nick are straight. (important, you’ll see why)

So, here are my thoughts. Keep in mind that this is just my opinion and is just formed by reading Becky’s tweets. 

I think the book is going to start out with Leah and Garrett being in a relationship. I think Garrett likes Leah more than Leah likes Garrett, but being in a relationship while all of her other friends are in relationships is nice. And Garrett’s nice, and I do think that she likes him. But I don’t think they last. I think endgame Leah is with a girl. 

So from above, that tweet about Nick and Garrett being straight, i think its important because she doesn’t say that Abby is straight! So to actually answer your question I think that there is a good chance that Abby and Leah could happen. Nick is “a hot mess” in this book, which could mean he and Abby broke/break up. I think at the very least I think we’ll know that Leah has a crush on Abby, because I refuse to believe that Leah just had a crush on Nick and that’s why she didn’t like Abby. I definitely don’t think its unrealistic to think that’s what is being hinted at.

I think it would be really cool if Emoji was still a band. Like if they played shows around town with $5 cover charges and they really are just SO COOL at school. I think Anna and Morgan are also going to be bigger characters, and probably Taylor as well. Which means so many awesome female characters! 

I also think it would be really nice to have some Nick/Leah/Simon friendship time, to see them patch things up better and go back to being bffs, because I feel like we missed out on that. 

Man, I’m so excited for the senior year lunch table. 

I think whether or not Leah and Abby happen (I mean, it could be Leah/Taylor too!) the book is going to be awesome. Leah is such a great character and I’m super excited to see more of what’s going on in her head. Plus, the Simon and Bram together will be freaking adorable. 

Now that i’m done with my 2nd year, fourth semester, of veterinary school, it’s time for the semi-annual list of things I have learned this semester:

1) Hydrogen Peroxide has not been shown to actually reduce infection rates in wounds. In fact, they may actually delay wound healing. But vinegar may have some possible antiseptic capability in wounds.
2) Medical Grade Honey is a thing.
3) Honey Bees need Vets too.
4) Dairy Cows are very sensitive to what people think about them and how they look.
5) Turtles are reclassified as chelonians.
6) The world is littered with flat squirrels that couldn’t decide which way to go.
7) Spelling is not an indicator of IQ.
8) My new favorite diagnostic sign is “rainbow vomit” on an echo.
9) Medical terms make great names for video game characters.
10) Superman could not conceive a child with Lois Lane.
11) Cats get idiopathic hypertension as a hobby.
12) Organ Assault Team sounds a lot like Oregon Assault Team. Either one is probably not good. Don’t be a part of the Organ Assault Team.
13) Too many things sound the same.
14) One thing can have too many different names.
15) “Sometimes you got to bleed to know that you’re alive and have a soul.” -Twenty One Pilots
16) “The only thing certain is uncertainty.”
17) “Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. ” - Joseph Addison

And of course many other things, but less comical. Here is to being half-way to “Doctor” status, but more importantly here is to halfway to being a veterinarian and making an impact in the lives of both people and animals.

Don’t Wanna Cry - Prologue

post-graduation fic with Jungkook ft Taehyung and Namjoon

Synopsis: After three years with your college love and one week post-graduation, Jungkook breaks up with you right before your flight to New York City, thinking that you, a soon-to-be medical student, deserve so much better than him. Heartbroken and shocked, you leave him behind with no choice but to embrace your new life and cut off all connections to him, not knowing that in a few months, he, too, will be working in downtown Manhattan.

Genre: Angst, eventual smut

Word count: 1,595

Author’s note: MANY THANKS TO TO HELPING ME OUT AND GIVING ME INCREDIBLE ADVICE - you are a truly wonderful being :)  I know this a Seventeen song, but I don’t know the members enough (learning now though!) and don’t want to misconceptualize them! Might write a SVT version later on though… The upcoming exchange between Y/N and Jungkook is inspired by the Finchel breakup, which I think is probably in my top 5 saddest TV breakups, and also from sad moments in my own relationship. Also, this is my first ever fic, so please give me constructive feedback!


May 2017

“Baby, is that the last of your luggage?” your boyfriend Jungkook queries, drops of sweat dripping from his hair after helping you put suitcase after suitcase in his vehicle. “Let’s go check your room one last time,” he suggests. You nod, tired, and the two of you walk into your senior year dormitory room.

You peruse around your dorm room one last time, feeling bittersweet as you reminisce about all the memories made in your small-town university. A surge of excitement rushes through you as you think about how you and Jungkook are now going move to New York City together, albeit on separate flights. After three happy years together at the same college, it feels rather unreal imagining what new heights your relationship will reach after graduation. You have dreamt of becoming a successful neurosurgeon for years now, and to have Jungkook by your side as the both of you work through graduate school is the cherry on top of a very nice sundae.

With a final sweep around the area, you answer, “Yeah, I’m ready. Are you sure you only need one bag?”

Jungkook flashes you a bunny-toothed grin. “Don’t worry about it, babe,” he assures you, his arms snaking around your torso as you walk out of the building. “I am so excited for you to start medical school and become a doctor. My baby is so smart,” he coos proudly, making you blush as the two of you approach his all-too-familiar car.

After slamming the trunk door shut and buckling yourself into the passenger seat, you and Jungkook are on your way to the airport. As you drive closer to your destination, you notice that Jungkook has become increasingly silent; trusting that he’s simply anxious about your flight, you say nothing and grip his hand, running your thumb over his knuckles in hopes of calming his nerves

At the end of what is a quiet drive, Jungkook parks in the airport parking lot and helps you carry your suitcases to the check-in line, waiting patiently as you pick up your ticket and drop off your bags to the flight attendant. Everything is going according to schedule, until you notice that Jungkook, who is stood a few feet away with his back turned to you, has yet to check in for his flight.

You walk towards him and tug at the back of his shirt. “Baby, why haven’t you checked in yet?” you ask. “Do you need help finding the desk for your flight? I can go ask that man over there.”

Jungkook slowly turns around and with alarm, you notice that his eyes are glazed with tears.

“Jungkook, babe, what happened? Are you okay?” you question him, assuming that he’s upset about finally leaving college behind.

“Y/N,” he whispers, “I am so sorry for doing this to you.”

You are dumbfounded, blinking as you attempt to comprehend his words; all you can do is stare at him, puzzled.

“I’m not going to New York with you,” he continues, unable to meet your gaze.

“What?” you exclaim, the realness of the situation not quite hitting you yet, “You told me that you had a job and everything lined up! Did you lie to me?”

Ignoring your words, Jungkook continues calmly, “You’re going to fly to New York as planned. Your brother is going to pick you up at the airport, and he’s going to help you move into your apartment. You’re going to start medical school in the fall and become the most kickass neurosurgeon on the planet.”

Eyes watering, you shakily breathe out, “You don’t want to be with me?”

Jungkook finally looks into your eyes with an angry sadness blazing in his own. “Jesus, Y/N, I want to be with you so bad and I love you so goddamn much that I can’t go through with this. I can’t keep you behind just because I don’t have a job. It makes me so sick thinking of how much wasted potential you would have if we stayed together. You deserve to grow and experience life at your own pace, not at mine.”

Finally realizing why he was so silent before in the car, why he only brought one bag — which was probably just his regular work out bag —  you weakly protest, “Then come look for a job with me in New York. You can stay in my apartment, work a part time job while you apply to jobs. We can sleep together on my bed, it’s not any worse that sleeping on the twin mattress in my dorm room.” You know you are rambling, and Jungkook cuts you off with four words.

“Do you love me?” he asks you.

“Yes, goddamnit Jungkook!” you sob, tears rushing down your face. “I love you so much.”

“Then let me do this,” Jungkook pleads. “This is only the beginning for you. You gotta experience your success on your own; you’re going to accomplish amazing things, Y/N.”

“Wait a minute, wait a minute,” you croak continuously over his speech, not caring that you definitely look like a mess right now. Jungkook finally pauses, and you whisper,  “Are you breaking up with me?”

“I’m letting you go, I’m setting you free,” he says sadly.

“Oh my God,” you gasp, “You can’t do this to me. You have no right to choose what is best for me!” you finally scream.

“Baby, you don’t know how hard it is for me to do this. I don’t want to let you go but I have to,” he responds, “You know you can’t stay here and defer medical school, and I can’t make you stress over my job search — which may not even be successful, by the way —  and pay most of our bills since I won’t be making money. You should be studying and enjoying life.”

Putting your hand over your mouth in a poor attempt at stifling your sobs, you say, “I can’t believe this is happening,” over and over again, knowing that Jungkook is too stubborn to change his mind.

“Y/N, you’re going to get on that flight, okay? I’m only one person. I can’t keep you from reaching your full potential as a doctor…” he firmly says while wiping tears from his eyes, “…without me. That’s how much I love you.”

In any other situation, you would have screamed “bullshit!” at his face. But right now, you are so heartbroken and shocked that you cannot do anything but weep and accept what has become of your future.

“Can I have one last hug though?” you manage to breathe out. At this moment, no feeling comes to mind but sadness over the break up from your first, and who you had foolishly hoped would be your last, love.

Jungkook wordlessly crushes you into his chest in response and you heave and gasp, trying to remember his scent and how he feels around you.

Saying goodbye has never hurt so much.

Airport staff walk around your intertwined bodies, trying not to look at what is the last sorrowful minutes of a young relationship. Married couples going on holiday together glance sympathetically and sigh in relief, for they themselves have avoided such a tragic fate.

“People are looking at us,” you sniffle in an unsuccessful attempt to distract yourself from the anguish that continues to nestle itself in your heart.  

Jungkook responds with a sullen shake of his head, not even noticing the silent audience moving around you. “I’m going to miss you so fucking much, Y/N,” he whispers, sadness limpid in his tone. Jungkook then moves slightly back to observe you one last time, as if to remember every detail even though he has already spent countless hours memorizing the curves and contours of your face.

He wishes that he could wipe the tears falling from your face, but he cannot since his own expression matches yours. Instead, he gently kicks your suitcase closer to you as more people move around your bodies and towards their respective terminals. You look down as he does so and let out a teary laugh; of course he’s still trying to look after you, even until the very last minute.

“I don’t want to leave without you,” you sob childishly while pulling his body towards yours again. His only response is to hug you tighter, as if he could give you two more time with every squeeze. Jungkook’s warm hands cup your face for the last time and bring your own to his. He pecks all over your face, hoping that somehow his display of love will slow down your last seconds together. A kiss for another day, another hour, another second — anything more than the short time that he has forced for your goodbye.

For a few more moments, neither of you move until a clerical overhead voice states that your flight is soon to board. With no choice but to finally let Jungkook go, you walk towards immigration, turning your head around repeatedly as he mouths the words “I love you” again and again until the immigration staff boredly calls out, “Next,” and you are forced to turn your attention away from Jungkook. After finishing immigration and security screening,  you turn around one last time in hopes of catching a glimpse of Jungkook before you leave, but you can’t see past the throng of people separating the two of you. With a heavy heart, you walk towards your flight terminal, feeling unsure of a seemingly decided future.


Author’s ending note: It’s post-graduation now and I think almost every college couple has discussed whether or not they’re going to stay together. Hopefully, a sudden breakup like this never happens to anyone, and if it does/has, here’s a big middle finger from yours truly to your idiot of an ex bc let’s be honest, that’s just downright disrespectful.

you know that relentless nagging primordial switch in the reward center of your lizard brain that gets flipped this time each year, one of many that still exist in spite of the fact that we advanced probably too quickly as a species, at least in terms of food storage infrastructure, which does nothing but scream “FIND AND CONSUME EVERY PARTICLE OF CARBOHYDRATE IN EXISTENCE, STAB A MAN IN THE FACE IF HE STANDS BETWEEN YOU AND FRENCH TOAST, THINK OF NOTHING BUT PROCURING A 40 POUND BAG OF CHOCOLATE, MAKE APPLE-PIE-CHURRO PASTRIES, FEED UNTIL YOUR VEINS EXPLODE FOR WINTER IS NIGH AND IT IS LONG”

turns out that it still being 80 nipple-sweating degrees outside holds no sway over this unfortunate evolutionary imperative, it’s just like, The Rules of September 

speculation compilation #45

Speculation regarding the Interlude specifically! A few of these came in a little earlier than the others, so I’ve categorized them accordingly.

Speculation as of page 35:

This direction was considered early on, but we decided to have the divergence from canon be very inconspicuous, and controlled solely by Chara without Asriel’s interference.

It is said that buttercups don’t taste very good, so the pie was probably bitter too! Perhaps all that sugar masked the taste. Asgore gets some credit for eating so much of that pie for the sake of the kids. (And it’s a good thing no one else ate it!)


Speculation as of page 36:

Chara did not suggest the plan off camera in this AU.

Actually, you were right the first time. Chara decides not to tell Asriel of the plan, which is why Asriel does not cry on Tape 4. (In this AU, there is no Tape 4 and 5, at least, not the same way as in game.)

Truly, the theories many of you had on what would change was brilliant! However, we wanted the divergence to be something very very simple and subtle. In this moment, there are two branching paths. In canon, Chara tells Asriel the plan, and it leads to the game we all know and love. This AU follows the other path where Chara hesitates and opts to say nothing. What were they thinking? Where will it lead? Well, I suppose you’ll have to wait and see.

Constants and variables…

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips for making beans? i spend more buying ingredients to keep them fed than i can make doing activities. getting more idols seems only to have made the problem worse. :(

Sure, I’ll give you some tips, anon

The problem for you is probably either that you’re going on too many dates or the schedules you’re sending the idols on are too short.

For the date thing, once you don’t get the option to go on the cheap train date as often it becomes a considerably slower process to gain intimacy levels with your idol. For me with Youngjae most dates cost from about 230 beans up to 1600 beans, and the rewards don’t necessarily reflect that price. You need to pace yourself with dates and other activities to avoid spending too many beans.

The schedules issue was a thing I encountered when I first started playing and gave myself some problems with. The thing is, when you have a lot of free time and as such can check in on the game often, you’ll probably start sending idols on short schedules, for quick rewards.

As you see here, the 5 minute schedule awards 170 beans and the 45 minute one give 1000 beans. Doing the 5 minute schedule 9 times would give you about 1500 beans in the same amount of time as the longer one which may seem like a better option, but there’s a flaw: repeatedly doing quick schedules will reduce health and increase hunger a lot faster (-45 health and -72 satiation in 45 minutes respectively). If you want to do some food maths then this actually gives you a net loss of beans, considering that a dish that gives +70 satiation (like Bibimbap) usually cost about 2000 beans to make. Doing longer schedules for bigger net gains is the only way you can reliably get beans throughout the day.

Those are the two big pitfalls that make you lose beans, but here are some other tips on managing your bean economy:

  • Watering friends’ plants gives you 100 beans (for a maximum of 2000 beans a day!); reviving them gives you plant food which might be worth less to you, so keep that in mind (don’t be afraid to add randoms or visit random users; people can’t see who’s added them and they won’t question seeing you in their garden)
  • Complete quests as often as possible! After a while you’ll also figure out what quests give what rewards, and will be able to prioritize which ones to do and which to skip (for example, getting quests to go on dates usually gives you beans as a reward while the quest for doing the lucky draw gives you hearts for the Heart Tree)
  • Always do the lucky roulette and the daily stamp for some extra beans
  • Don’t overspend or underspend on seeds! Most of the time seeds will give you ingredients worth more than the cost of the seed, but if you already have a lot of the ingredients you can get from Normal Seeds (for example) don’t buy more as you won’t gain much from them (also, remember to get free seeds from adverts)
  • Avoid the lucky draw if you don’t feel as if you have the beans to spend, refresh the quest if it pops up so you can continue with your daily quests
  • If you’re really short on beans you can use the Market to sell items (but the amount of beans you get usually isn’t worth it)
  • If you have an available star you can go fishing with them in Jeju Port (bring some friends’ mains for it as well) a couple of times a day for free. Fishing will give you ingredients that range from cheap 80-beans ones to rare 5-gem ones.

Hopefully that helped, anon, I’m running with 4 idols from B.A.P so I can make a decent amount of beans on the regular but I think these tips will work out for most users. I’m still figuring the game out so I might have missed something, but if I can I’ll add onto this later.
