Song stuck in my head: THIS ONE : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U616ullGyg0 *sobs*

Last Movie you watched: Enemy at the Gates. PFFT what a joke. I swear Battle for Sevastopol affirmatively ruined all other war movies for me.

What are you wearing right now: Black yoga pants, old Nike running shirt, my mom’s old shawl. All black.

What do you post: Reblogs of art, fanart, quotations, memes, everything and anything. Updates to my fiction as well, as well as some ramblings - but those are few and far in between.

Lucky Number: 8

Favorite character: Kenshi, Takeda, Hanzo, Kuai, Sonya, Johnny Cage, Raiden (MK).

Lara, Kurtis (as a ship and as separate characters too - TR). 

Kaz Miller, Solid Snake (David), Jack (Raiden), Sniper Wolf - MGS.

Connor, Altair - AC.

Just about covers all the games I play :P Fictional books is a VERY long list!!

How Many Blankets Do you Sleep With: One. I never get this question xD

Dream Job: Saving the poor/destitute/forgotten/helpless in some way. 

Board games, video games or tabletop games?: Video games take priority - the stories offered by some games really feed my creativity. But board-games are great for bonding with friends and family xD

Do you have any OCs? If yes, talk about a couple of them!: I’ll just talk about my main OC: Jehan Ara, aka “The Captain.” She’s someone who arrange Kenshi escape with Takeda to the Shirai Ryu base. Lost her family in an insignificant Oni attack - and shortly thereafter realized she has self-healing abilities - meaning she can’t die (much to her own dismay). She has a lifechanging experience during the Kargil war that makes her wary of everything around her, esp her role in the Army - and eventually goes on to become a UN Peacekeeper. Hard, tough as nails, quiet, authoritative - get’s the job done. But has with very deep insights on what it means to be on the battlefield, and the need to protect people and secure they’re rights. She’s done it all, the blood and grit of war - buried her dead fellow soldiers and friends, physically stuffed the innards of her team member in their abdomen as they retreated it to base, mingled with locals, formed friendships with young children, etc. Has a soft corner for the Kombat Kids, though you would never know from the way she trains them. Excellent markswoman, fills in for any downed snipers. 

But yeah, I have great plans for her in my next fic… WHEN I get to it xD May even help me write my own book at some point.  

One thing you wish was canon in a fiction story/fandom?: I wish they’d have shown Kenshi’s remorse in leaving Takeda with Hanzo.. and Takeda’s struggle to accept him after they reunite (yeah, that reunion scene was OK. But not enough to flesh both the chars out). There are so many more for MKX (which sucked in storytelling imo).

AND I WISH THEY’D HAVE SHOWN THAT KURTIS LIVED. OR JUST FINISHED THE AOD TRILOGY :’(

Favourite thing to draw/ write about/ think about?: Kenshi/Takeda as a father-son duo. :) Lartis is extremely fun too :)

The strangest song you like (and a link to it if possible!): Axel F Crazy Frog. You don’t need a link xD

A book/story/fanfiction you read recently and would recommend (doesn’t have to be fiction): Read whatever @hell-on-training-wheels @therealpoesdaughter @the-06 @iceangelmkx @obelisk-of-light @kumulonimbus @prblitz @tcmbraider @shockapella-sweet @what-does-the-foxy-say write :)

(Also tagging you all and @moonchilddust, @shadamyfortherestofmylife @ivewashere for this!) :)

The only modern AU I’ve seen so far that I liked was vegan yoga instructor Chirrut and his omnivore natural eating mechanic husband and so I’ve been thinking on that so consider if you will:

  • Chirrut and Baze used to be professional martial artists (though Baze was running hits for the mob at the same time) and met while training. Baze retired (from both jobs) to become Chirrut’s trainer.  The first time Baze asked Chirrut out was when after coded flirting in the locker room he absolutely wiped the floor with him on the mat.  
  • Chirrut takes Taoism very seriously, while Baze was raised Buddhist and doesn’t really care. 
  • Chirrut’s career ended when he was blinded during one of the many protests around Tienanmen Square in the late 80s/early 90s.  
  • Chirrut now teaches yoga to white middle class moms while Baze runs a small motor shop next door.  Chirrut sometimes calls out across the yoga studio in canto and Baze comments back in mandarin from the adjacent kitchen where he’s making tea and the white middle class moms think they’re cute because they’re such an old married couple in love but half of the time it’s a joke about one of them. They live upstairs and if you wear shoes in their home Chirrut will never let you live down your mistake.  
  • They got married as soon as it was legal to do so.  There was no real proposal, it was a mutual decision that made sense.
  • There’s a rumor that Baze knows how to get machine guns and military grade weapons illegally from China but if anyone comes knocking to find out they get shown the door and sometimes their own asses. But he does know, and has a mini arsenal of weapons hidden in various places in their zen hippie apartment. Chirrut has knives hidden in a few places.  They’ve made some enemies in their 50 years of being unapologetically political. 
  • One day Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor are running from government hired muscle or cops or whatever and run to hide in Chirrut’s yoga studio.  The government thugs tell this blind peaceful looking yoga gay to hand the kids over or else and not to push them they’re not against hitting a blind guy, and get their asses handed to them.  One of them almost gets the jump on him and is knocked out by a wrench to the back of the head by Baze who is like wtf is going on in here.  Jyn and Cassian are like THE FUCK DID I JUST WATCH THAT WAS AMAZING
  • They teach Jyn and Cassian hand to hand martial arts combat skills and Jyn is way better at it than Cassian.

Now let your spiritual practice be this: As you go about your life, don’t give 100 percent of your attention to the external world and to your mind. Keep some within. Feel the inner body even when engaged in everyday activities, especially when engaged in relationships or when you are relating with nature. Feel the stillness deep inside it. Keep the portal open. It is quite possible to be conscious of the Unmanifested throughout your life. You feel it as a deep sense of peace somewhere in the background, a stillness that never leaves you, no matter what happens out here. You become a bridge between the Unmanifested and the manifested, between God and the world. This is the state of connectedness with the Source that we call enlightenment.

“Have you tried yoga??? My aunt did it when she had back pain and it cured her it’ll cure you too!!!”
My pre-calculus teacher when I told her that I have scoliosis and that makes it hard to sit in one position for very long.

myklaineinthe67impala  asked:

hi!! your yoga teacher au is awesome I need more

Glad you liked it :)

Unfortunately I had no plans to continue the AU, the idea came to me a bit out of the blue while running, and I really want to focus on other projects, such as my politics!AU 

But since you asked so nicely… Here is an extra scene for you to enjoy :)

(This ended up longer than I intended. I really need to work on my summary skills)

Gradence Yoga Teacher!AU - follow up from this post

By the end of his first yoga class Credence is completly destroyed. All his muscles ache fiercely, even the ones he was not aware existed an hour ago. All those claims about yoga being relaxing are complete bull, he thinks, as he lays panting on his mat. Not only is he too exhausted to move, he also suffering through the worst case of blue balls of his entire life. 

After a few minutes of staring at the ceiling and reflecting on his bad choices, Tina graciously helps him get to his feet, and he leans on her as he hobbles awkwardly towards the changing rooms. 

Once he gets to the Men’s changing room he needs to lean on the walls for support, until he manages to get to his locker and collapses next to it. He wants nothing more than to lie down on the floor and sleep until his muscles start responding properly again, but he forces himself to undress and take a shower. He doubts Tina would appreciate sharing a cab with him while he stinks like dirty gym socks.

Getting undressed is an awkward and painful process. He usually has a bad time trying to keep his scarred back as hidden as possible, but with his arms being less cooperative than usual, the whole things stretches into ridicule.

The hot spray of the shower almost makes him forget everything for a minutes. He lets the water wash over his body, soothing sore muscles and turning his skin pink from the heat. 

When he gets out of the shower he feels like a new person, sweat, and pain, and sexual frustrations gone down the drain. And then he finds himself face to face with a very wet, very handsome and almost naked Graves.

The man is covering himself with a poor excuse of a towel that barely reaches the middle of his tighs. His hair is dripping wet and disheveled, water droplets falling from it into his eyes and sliding seductively down his neck and chest. His very naked, very muscled, very nice chest that Credence cannot, for the life of himself tear his eyes from.

He is so fixated tracking a water droplet make his way through his happy trail he almost does not hear Graves when he speaks up “You are the new kid on the class, right?”

His tongue feels like lead in his mouth and his throat is bone dry, so he settles for a strained nod.

“You did good” declares Graves, a half smile curling the end of his lips “Hope to see you next week”  He then pats Credence on the shoulder as he walks away towards his own locker.

Credence’s shoulder burns like fire. He is glad he took the shower, otherwise Tina would have had to deal with his stinking self on the ride back, because there’s no way he is washing that shoulder any time soon.

(He goes back to class the following week, of course, against all his self-preservation instincts and common sense)
