why would i voluntarily do that

Give the power to the people? If that was possible, why would you give that to us?

You’re supposed to lead because you have a vision, not freely give power. Giving power back to people isn’t always a good idea.

I mean, let us in the decision making process. Hear us out. Let’s discuss what we can do. But don’t give power to every single person.

I saw White people put their hair on fire for YouTube views. You want to give people who endanger their lives voluntarily as much power as you would give me, someone who goes through traffic to deliver a package for $12?

Today I watched my autistic cousin do his ABA therapy. I felt super awkward.

I mean, why are “play skills” a thing? Like, yeah, my cousin is naturally inclined to play like a weirdo. I played like a weirdo all throughout childhood. It did not fuck me up. If I had spent my childhood going to classes where someone forced me to play like a neurotypical, I would have just stopped playing voluntarily. Playing would have stopped being pleasant.

Luckily, my cousin doesn’t seem to take a position that’s that extreme. He seems to mostly have fun playing. However, every time he’s commanded to look his playmate in the eye or to rework the sentences he’s using while speaking to her, his smile fades a little. I kept having to walk out of the room to avoid saying something unfortunate to the therapist.

His friend who takes part in these lessons is an absolute saint, though. She never loses enthusiasm for playing with him. I mean, if I were a patient NT kid, I would probably have been willing to put up with my cousin or his therapist, but not both at once. That kid needs a medal.

10 things wrong with Masky and Hoodie

1) Masky and Hoodie are not creepypastas .
They’re from a web series called Marble Hornets , not from the creepypasta website .
2) Masky and Hoodie are not together .
Masky and Hoodie absolutely despise each other , why in the fuck would they be together or even friends for that point .
3) Masky and Hoodie do not willingly work for Slenderman .
Slender ruined their lives , why would they want to ever help him voluntarily ?
4) Masky and Hoodie are not their names .
Masky’s name is actually Tim , and Hoodie’s is Brian .
5) Masky and Hoodie are not teenagers .
They’re grown fucking adults .
6) Masky - you know what I’m not even gonna use that name anymore - Tim has sideburns . His hair is black . His eyes are brown . Get it the fuck right .
7) Tim doesn’t like cheesecake .
That’s a fat joke against Tim from Marble Hornets gaining weight . This really fucking needs to stop .
8) Tim and Brian are not brothers .
They have no relations with each other besides they used USED to be friends .
9) Tim hates cameras .
They remind him of Jay , so when Brian films things Tim isn’t all like “Selfieeee~” Just No Stop Fuckofffuckofffuckoff
10) Tim only wears the mask when he’s forced . He doesn’t put it on for shits and giggles . Hence why he threw it away in the last Marble Hornets .
That’s fucking all .

12:51 am pt. i

I was shaken up by the thought that I have no one. I admit being alone is something that I’m used to, which is quite sad for some, but for the past few weeks, I am more convinced that it would be nice if someone would voluntarily stay even if I try to push them away. It’s a defense mechanism of mine - to push people away.  I know it’s a fucked up thing to do but you got to protect yourself right? However, the young version of me didn’t know that no matter how I protect myself from them, I’d still be chased by pain. It’s an unending circle. 

In the end, some of them stayed but then I realized staying is not enough the same time they realized why staying is a fucked up thing to do and so they leave.

There are many things in this world I do not know. I do not know how butterflies get out of their cocoons without damaging their wings. I do not know why anyone would boil vegetables when roasting them is tastier. I do not know how to make olive oil, and I do not know why dogs bark before an earthquake, and I do not know why some people voluntarily choose to climb mountains where it is freezing and difficult to breathe, or live in the suburbs, where the coffee is watery and all of the houses look alike.
—  Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler) - The Hostile Hospital

So the way I see it is:

If I was to have a medical condition where my hair fell out in patches or thinned to the point where I had bald spots then people would be empathetic, without judgement, and understanding. But because I ‘do it to myself’ it’s something people can criticise me on, question ‘why I do it’, look at me skeptically as if to say 'why the hell would anyone voluntarily pull out their hair’. Try ignoring an itch, and the urge to scratch it will get worse. The pulling I do because of Trich isn’t a conscious decision, it’s almost an impulse. I’m not aware of it half the time. And trying to stop is near impossible. So fuck off and leave me to carry on trying not to tear myself apart.

My point is that there’s nothing wrong with being strategic and calculating. It’s something that is part of a larger feminist conversation. Why can’t women be strategic and calculating? Men do it in their jobs all the time. And I personally wish that Taylor would actually show us more of that side of her, because I think it would be a good example to set of how an ambitious woman manages her career. But she’s created this image for herself where she can’t show that side. And I wonder whether or not—now that that side has been inadvertently exposed—we might see more of that from her voluntarily.

Imagine Stiles trying to impress you but failing miserably

“Come on, ladies!” Coach yells as the boys run laps around the field. “My dead grandmother can run faster than you guys!”


You rolls your eyes at the Coach’s insults as you take a seat next to the girls. “So, what’d I miss?” you ask.


“Just a lot of running and screaming.” Lydia replies, shrugging. “Other than that, nothing.”


“Oh, good, I thought I missed it.” you say, taking out your math book. “I’m supposed to drive Liam home tonight, since dad’s working late.”


“Is your little brother the only reason you came?” Lydia asks, smirking at you.


“Of course.” you reply, face flushed. “Why else would I voluntarily watch a bunch of sweaty boys plus Kira running around?”


“Because you like Stiles.” Malia replies bluntly. 


“I do not!” you deny, but even you don’t believe yourself. “Is it that obvious?”


“Apparently it isn’t to him, but everyone else knows.” Lydia says. “It’s the same with Stiles, everyone knows he likes you except for you.”


“Stiles likes me?” you gasp, and Malia nods.


“Even I knew that.” she says proudly.


“Pick up the pace!” Coach yells. The three of you turn your attention back to the field, and your eyes immediately go to Stiles, who’s already stating at you. The two of you hold eye contact for a moment before you both look away.


Next, the boys take practice shots, and you try to keep yourself from laughing as Stiles slowly gets weaker and sloppier. By his last shot, he’s out of breath, and flings the ball right into Liam’s goalie stick. Scott looks over at you, and gather’s Stiles in his arms, pulling him to the side. 


The rest of the practice consists of equally adorkable behavior from Stiles, and you can’t help but giggle at his cuteness. “Y/N, why don’t you just tell him you like him?” Lydia asks as you wait for the boys after practice.


“Oh no, I couldn’t do that.” you reply firmly. “I don’t want to ruin our friendship if he doesn’t feel the same.”


“Hey, Y/N?” you spin around, and come face to face with Stiles. 


“Oh, hey Stiles.” you reply, blushing. “What’s up?”


“Do you thin we could talk for a minute?” he asks. “Alone?”


“Sure, of course.” you say, following him down the hall. “So what did you-”


At the same moment, Stiles starts saying “I was wondering if-”


“You go first.” you say, and he chuckles.


“I was wondering if you would like to go out tonight?” he asks shyly. “Like, on a date, or something?”


“Really?” you ask, eyes widened. Immediately, the smile drops from Stiles’s face, and he turns around.


“Sorry, it was a bad-”


“I would love to go out with you.” you interrupt, causing him to turn around with a huge grin on his face.


“Really?” 


“Really.” you reply, placing a quick kiss on his cheek. “Pick me up at 8.”

The Hostile Hospital, Lemony Snicket

I liked Ruby.

Ruby was loyal. Ruby was brave.

Yes, she lied and she manipulated. But she’s a demon “it’s in the job description”

Everything she did, she did out of loyalty to Lilith and Lucifer. And she was brave because when she embarked on her secret mission, all of Hell turned against. She could’ve been killed at anytime.

She was there for Sam when he had no one else. Do I need to remind you that Dean willing, knowingly, and voluntarily sold his soul? He knew that he would be going to Hell and leaving Sam all by himself forever.

There are some people that think Ruby 1.0 and Ruby 2.0 were actually two different demons because their personalities were so different? But why? Did you ever stop to think that maybe Ruby just adapted to what Sam needed at the time.

When Sam and Ruby first meet in season 3, he needed tough love. He needed someone to help him transition into life without Dean. And after Dean died, Sam just needed love. His heart had shattered into a million pieces and Ruby picked them up and put it back together again.

Ruby made Sam feel powerful. Remember that Dean called Sam a freak. Dean locked Sam up in the panic room. Dean punched Sam in the face when he found out Sam was using his powers. Ruby never ONCE made Sam feel bad for having psychic powers. She made him feel special. She made him feel like he could finally do something good with his gifts.

I like to compare Ruby to Meg and how Meg also lied to and manipulated Sam for the same reasons and yet no one hates her. Why? Because she got redemption. She came back and proved that there was more to her than just some Lucifer Loyalist sheep. Why doesn’t Ruby deserve the same thing? I think Ruby deserves redemption even more than Meg.

Just because Dean thinks she’s evil doesn’t make it so. Dean’s done some things that are even worse than what Ruby did.

anonymous asked:

um, how would Tsuki, Bokuto, Kuroo and Akaashi react if someone from their team shaved one of their eyebrows off while they were napping?

oh my g od i feel like a certain someone’s reactions could vary greatly depending on the person who did it…

Tsukishima would be pissed. I don’t know who tf decided it was a fun idea to do this bc why would u voluntarily invoke the rage of this boy on yourself just w h y. I feel like he wouldn’t throttle anyone, but he’s not above petty insults/jabs, and er, I can imagine possible blackmail and definite grudges 8D woe is the person who decides to do this. also he’d probably go home and google stuff to draw on a realistic-looking eyebrow until it grew back :’D

Okay but honestly, I feel like for Bokuto and Kuroo, they’d probably both be like “o shit that’s a new look for me, hey guys check it out don’t I look cool” like if that was planned as a prank, I feel like they wouldn’t be embarrassed at all LOL. And tbh if it happened to Bokuto, he’d probably tell Kuroo about it–and vice versa, and they’d probably both have it done to them by the next day just bc okay I’ll stop with my brotp :P

99% sure it would have been Bokuto’s idea to do it to Akaashi. He’d probably be lowkey reeeally pissed about it at first, but I feel like it would be more of a simple “why” instead of “how could you”/”i look horrible”/other. So he’d probably be over it pretty easily LOL except having to explain to curious classmates/teachers.

Double Texting (Barry Allen Imagine)

‘How long are you going to do this?’ [9:00PM]

‘Barry please answer. I don’t think we have ever gone this long without speaking.’ [9:35PM]

“You’re acting like this isn’t hurting me too.” I mumble as I reread my texts from (y/n).

Zzz  ‘You and Iris were fighting so you decided to stop talking for however long. Can’t you tell me what I did wrong so I can at least try to fix it?’ [10:00PM]

‘You haven’t done anything’ SEND

“Damn it.”

‘Then why aren’t you talking to me?’ [10:05PM]

“Why do you have to be so stubborn?! As if I would ever voluntarily hurt you! Like this isn’t the only option.” I shout at my phone as if she could hear me.

‘One text isn’t enough to get you off the hook. You can’t keeping running away Barry.” [10:15PM]

“Ha, if only she knew.”

“Know what?” A muffled voice asks through the door. No way. “Barry I know you’re in there, I heard you talking.” She calls out. Maybe if I’m quiet she’ll leave? “Barry are you being serious! You can’t leave me out here, open the damn door!” She hollers, now banging on my door.

I rush over and swing it open. “Shhh (y/n), you want the neighbors to call the cops on me?” She brushes by me and into my apartment. “It’s late you shouldn’t be out by yourself at this hour.” I sigh as I close the door.

She swirls around and my heart breaks. Any annoyance she just felt has melted away and she is left with the most hurt expression. “I wouldn’t be risking my safety if you weren’t avoiding me like the plague. You haven’t returned a single call or text in weeks and when I saw you at the station you literally ran out of the room.”

I can’t help but cringe. “Yeah, that was a bit much.”

“All of this is a bit much. Especially without there being a reason. You told me I didn’t do anything. Are you staying away because I still talk to Iris or something? Don’t make me pick a side here.”

“It’s not like that.”

I’m gonna be a real fucking asshole to the next person that questions my choice to not raise children. First, it’s not your business, why do you need to questions it. Then there’s the fact that it would trigger so much dysphoria it would probably kill me.

Then there’s the fact that I’ve been taking care of sick family members since I was 14. I really, really dislike the role of caregiver. I am not built for it, I do not thrive in it. There’s no way in hell I’m voluntarily taking care of someone younger and more helpless than those family members. My youth, for a large part, has not been mine. I would like for my adulthood to be. 

And I don’t want to hear “but you have a dog” because if you truly equate taking care of a dog to taking care of another human being you have bigger issues than me not breeding. 

{{ Alright question time. You end up facing someone that you KNOW is more powerful than you and could probably kill you rather effortlessly if they wanted to. What do you do? Think about it for a second. Would you provoke them? Probably not. Then why oh WHY do I keep seeing it happens in RP? Some characters are more powerful than yours, with canon evidence and I feel like sometimes people just dismiss that and voluntarily provokes those characters. Then some even get mad if they end up in trouble. Why? What did you expect. Villains aren’t chew toys, they’ll fuck you up if you’re bothering them. Some might not have without provocation, but then with how your muse acted, they didn’t have much of a choice. I often feel like lots of people have their characters shit talk just for the sake of it, even though it’s completely stupid and even suicidal to do so. My own muse is known for talking lots of shit but trust me he knows when he needs to watch what he says. It’s just LOGIC to restrain yourself sometimses and not actively run after your own death.

Akimoto Sayaka-sensei’s Deathblow Lecture

From the many requests written by the members, one of the requests Sayaka and Mocchi drew out was Shiroma Miru’s from NMB48. I don’t understand the reason why, but in here Mirurun requests that she wants to know 3 deathblow attacks.

And the one to voluntarily grant Mirurun’s wish would be none other than the aikido trained, action actress herself, Sayaka.

With that, Sayaka-sensei demonstrates 3 deathblow techniques she thought of…techniques that scares poor Mocchi along the way. XD

This is the way I see it…

1 - Let your opponent meet your hand up close so it looks big to them. (Again, poor Mocchi.)

2 - Step up and do the arms pumped up looking pose Sayaka is doing so you look big to your opponent.

3 - Use Sayaka’s recommended weapon…a banana (Why am I not surprised? XD). It can do more than one thing. It can be a shuriken, a hook to snag something with, or after you eat it, leave the peel on the floor for your opponent to slip on. Now how useful is that? XD

Yep, only Sayaka can think of deathblow techniques such as these.
