you are 10 years old seriously

Bat-Kids React to BatCat Engagement
  • Dick: Super-excited, just wants his dad to be happy. Throws himself into wedding preparation. Lives for this. Takes cake-tasting far more seriously than either the bride or groom.
  • Jason: Passive-aggressive questioning in the fake voice of a 10-year-old, just to annoy Bruce. Is not actually worried about whether he'll have to share his room with the cats. Selina finds it hilarious. Bruce is unamused.
  • Tim: "...You know, I knew something ridiculous was going to happen while I was not-dead. This wasn't even in the top twenty worst-case scenarios, so...congrats?"
  • Cass: Quietly super-happy. Subtly works cat motifs into her costume. Tags along with Selina on patrol.
  • Steph: "About time. This house needs some more feminine energy. They're always ganging up on me."
  • "Stephanie, you don't even live here."
  • "New mommy, dad's being mean to me again."
  • Damian: Is mainly worried about Alfred the cat and how he'll react to his new step-cats.
  • Duke: Polite, welcoming, genuinely congratulatory. Also practical. Makes sure all the valuable Wayne Manor paintings are secured to the wall. Especially any with a cat in them.
  • Harper: Takes over bachelorette party planning. Has binders of blackmail material on Bruce to show Selina. This is her moment.
  • Barbara: Is just glad the tabloids will stop shipping her and Batman.

Looking for a room by May 5th!

heya everyone, I’m currently looking for a roommate situation that I can move into! im 27 years old and work in animation, and am a type B (i like video games and sleeping) and am currently in my own studio.  I have a pet with me, she is a very gentle therapy cat (registered and everything) and loves belly rubs (seriously) but she would have to be the only pet, so I know that narrows stuff down a lot, but I’m willing to work with you!

I’m hoping to find a place within a 10-20 minute commute of CN, and any other info we can talk about through email. 

I’ve opened up my asks so if you are able to help, please send me a message there then I’ll give you my email after you give me yours and your first and last name (a safety peocaution… you’ll have mine since its my blog title aha) and we can discuss stuff from there

thank you so much!

Hello! I have a character who's five years old and I was wondering what difference that makes medically, if that makes sense? Both like how medical workers will act with her and explain things given she's very young and how that would factor into her medical care, like basic checkups or diagnosing illnesses and stuff like that. Sorry if this is too broad or vague, and thank you for all you do!

Hey there! Congrats on being Janey on the spot with the inbox and  being the first ask of June! 

So, one quick note. I come from EMS, and particularly now from a critical care service that handles a lot of kids. But I’m assuming for the purpose of this ask that this child is not and has never been critically ill. Okay? Okay! 

Pediatrics is its own specialty for a reason, and I have bundles to learn about it. There are all sorts of things that are different in pediatric medicine (and all sorts that of things that are shockingly similar!). 

First, let’s talk about “furniture.” As you’ll remember from having once been a child, peds doctors offices and clinics, and even ERs, are often bright, colorful and cheery places. Kids get offered toys and lollipops, they get to see special movies. Doc McStuffins is a very common sight in peds hospitals and waiting rooms. 

I’ve heard of peds hospitals that have different mural styles for different wards: one hallway that’s done all up in a baseball theme, another in a princesses and dragons theme, another in trains. 

Oh! When little kids get a nebulizer treatment, oftentimes now the mask they get the treatment through looks like a dragon and it’s awesome and I wish they came in adult sizes. 

Providers are also, by necessity, gentler with kids. You can’t argue with a kid and tell them to hold still; they’re going to squirm whether the shot is good for them or not. (Don’t get me started on vaccinations, please.) 

In terms of the medicine, as someone who works on a pediatric critical care unit, there are two ways you can look at kids. 

A) They’re just little adults. 

B) They are definitely not little adults. 

Both are true. They’re little adults in that they have the exact same functions as adults. They’re not little adults in that there are big social development changes that go on at various ages and there are some physiological changes (mostly that come up in very technical fields) that are different. 

For adults, a lot of the med doses are standardized; for kids, they’re almost all weight-based. A 5 year old should weigh roughly 20kg/45lbs (and there’s a really neat method called Handtevy that will give you the estimated weight of any kid up to 10 yrs old based just on their age; it’s stupendously cool and exactly the kind of thing pediatric critical care medics nerd out about!). 

IVs are almost always smaller in kids, but that’s because they’re little. I’ve also seen ERs use whole teams to get a single IV in a child, including someone singing happy songs while other people stab the child with needles. (It seemed seriously Clockwork Orange to me, but I have a feeling it’s data-driven with good outcomes, so who knows?) 

I get the feeling you’re asking about pediatrics in general and not pediatric critical care, so I’m going to try and focus on the general practice stuff, which is that kids who don’t get seriously ill tend to do pretty well. 

Some things they might have done at the doctor’s office if they’re not there for a specific illness: 

  • Vitals: blood pressure, pulse, oxygen saturation, temperature
  • Height/weight checks. 
  • Scoliosis checks. 
  • Vision and hearing checks. 
  • Immunization checks. (I’d say just check the immunization schedule recommended by your region; the CDC’s is here and is as good as any.) 
  • Allergy scratch-testing 

Common reasons a 5 y.o. will go to the doctor: 

  • Earaches and ear infections
  • Fever (usually the flu or an ear infection) 
  • Vomiting 
  • Asthma. This is incredibly common in some areas, and I’ve worked in a few. 
  • the snot. so much the snot. 
  • Something lost in the nose 
  • Something swallowed 
  • Mechanical injury (broken wrist, bumped head, etc.)  It’s common for good parents to be suspected of child abuse for having clumsy kids. 

Kids tend to bounce – both literally and figuratively. They’re little, but pretty tough and hard to injure, and when they do get hurt they heal pretty quickly. They’re still growing, so they do well. 

That’s all I can think of about pediatrics when it’s 2 in the morning and I worked a 14+ hour day! 

Congrats on getting there first and I hope this was what you needed. 

xoxo, Aunt Scripty

Fucking thank you! My mom used to make us do this til I was old enough to move out and I just stopped going with her anywhere because it only made me more nervous to order by myself instead of better at it. I still can’t stand ordering on my own because I have a mini panic attack(seriously don’t do this to your fucking kids). At the moment my kids want to order on their own but I’m hesitant mainly because I don’t think they’re quite old enough to get proper customer etiquette. My oldest is 12, so I’m sure I’m either being over protective with him or biased based on my experience, so if anyone has input on that feel free to tell me. lol But, yeah, I’m 33 and I still have to rehearse my order 15 minutes in advance… -Abby

27 Dresses (Epilogue)

Steve x Reader, Bucky x Reader AU

Summary – You are the epitome of “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.”  You think you know what love is, but sometimes you can’t see what’s right in front of you.  

Warnings – Fluff!!

Word Count – 1,516

Notes –   So, the ladies at @stories-from-stark-tower extended the deadline for the Movie Challenge indefinitely, so I decided I needed some more closure with this fic.  Also, I feel really guilty for the way I wrote Nat.  I kinda wish I’d left Tess as her sister and worked Nat in somewhere else!  So, with that being said, this part is for Nat, please forgive me, my beautiful Russian Doll!!!  As always, please feel free to leave me comments or asks to let me know what you thought!

*Special thank you to the lovely ladies at the Avengers Trash Tower for allowing me to use them as my “brides!”

You reluctantly pushed yourself away from him, moving away just enough to look into his eyes.  “I love you, Bucky.”

“I kinda like it when you call me James,” he teased as you halfheartedly smacked his arm.  “I’m kidding!  I’m kidding! Seriously, though, I love you too, (Y/N).”

Bucky swept you into his arms, his lips finding yours again as he carried you toward his bedroom.


1 Year Later

You sat on the slightly uncomfortable settee in Vandall’s as you waited for Nat to come out of the dressing room.

“What’s taking her so long?” Sharon whined from her seat beside you, boredom causing her to fidget in her seat. “Wasn’t she able to change clothes in like 10 seconds when she was a model?”

My daddy is 10 years older than me. I am 15 and he is 25. Hes very caring and loves me but i find the age difference way too hard and too much for me right now. I don't what to do because i feel uncomfy being with him but he adores me and i would break his heart if i told him. Do you have any suggestions on what i can do???

Your partner is not a daddy, he’s a pedophile. 

Yes, I do have a suggestion: run. Seriously, there is something majorly wrong with a 25 year old who is interested in a 15 year old. Like, fucking hell. You’re still a baby. 

You’re uncomfortable because this situation is really weird and wrong. You’re uncomfortable because you’re instincts are telling you to get the fuck outta there. 

No, it doesn’t matter how “nice” or “caring” he appears to be. He’s a creep. You shouldn’t feel bad for him. He’s a grown as man. He can take care of him fucking self. 

Break up with him. Get the fuck out of there. Run. End it. Block him on all social media. 

He is too old to be dating a 15 year old, high school girl. 

There is something wrong with him.

Get out of there. 

important tip for you all

guys seriously you need to stop reacting to everything. try and change your attitude, be more positive, more easy going and just live in the moment.
let go of things stop holding on so tight. you broke up with your ex? move on. drifted from a best friend? you can always find new ones. none of this is going to matter in the next 5, 10 or 25 years.
streaks aren’t important.
don’t be scared of people who are all talk.
if it happens behind a screen the other persons obviously pussy.
if you’re stuck then report it. report the problem so it stops occurring stop being scared to tell someone about it. someone who can actually do something to help you.
guys but seriously i’m saying all this for your sake bc it’s not okay to be constantly worrying over small things like losing a streak with an old friend. these things aren’t important you need to focus on yourself. focus on your education and focus on your future. it’s only you.

*sees leaked video for new episode*

Soooo……Connie is just totally fine with Lapis? Even though the last time that we saw them, Lapis tried (and practically succeeded) to drown her?


You know, for the most part I’m fine with things progressing in the background. This show is told from Steven POV and he can’t be present for everything. And other characters shouldn’t just be put on hold until the mains see fit to include them. I dislike that type of storytelling, so I don’t mind that SU does this.

But this? Forget whining about your damn ships, this is something that we should have been shown. Lapis tried to DROWN her and Connie was a 10-11 year old girl at the time. That’s not something she should just shrug off and be fine with. So if they have resolved stuff, why haven’t we seen it? Why is Lapis constantly getting away with the shit she does?

I mean, it was a brief clip, so I could be wrong. But I doubt it. So what the actual fuck, Crewniverse?

regalregann  asked:

I have so much love for bysotid! And you! Thank you for brightening my week! Heh, I'm oddly surprised reading fics without Nakagawa now. :)) Do you have any fanfic recommendations yoi, hp, or otherwise?

Thank you so much!

I’ve been out of HP fandom for so long that my recs would all be like 10 years old. Ha!  So I’ll stick to YOI.

That said, there are a ton of fics that I like.  So when I went to compile this list, I made myself promise to do ONE THING and that was not to put something that had been recced a zillion times.  Because I’m sure you already know about those.  You can’t go five seconds on tumblr without hearing about them.  So yeah, you won’t find the old reliables as I’ll call them on this list. :D

(Seriously everyone reccing the same five fics over and over has always been a pet peeve of mine.  Yeah, I know, everyone loves them, which means almost everyone has read them, so how are people supposed to find NEW things to read? *sigh*)

Sassy’s YOI Rec List of Underappreciated Fics (In her Not So Humble Opinion)

So obviously I have a bit of a thing for Soulmate AUs. (I wrote one after all)  They can be incredibly cute.  So I’ll start with a couple of those:

Drunk on Love by  kiaronna:  So this is actually a collection of Soulmate AUs.  The author tries to go with different takes on them that you haven’t really seen before.  My favourites are probably the first one (once you meet your soulmate the further you get, the more drunk you become), the second (Petnames written on skin. Yuuri has tons and Viktor only two) and the eighth one (Substitutions… Which is hard to explain in a sentence)

Eros in Progress by trixiechick:  This one is less about the soulmate angle for me and more about the worldbuilding.  I love a good fantasy, but I am crap at worldbuilding, so I am awed.  Basically think of the opening of the anime as magic.  Sorcerers create colors with their performances and bring happiness, this ability is highly sought after.  Yuuri, of course, thinks he sucks at it while Viktor is amazing…

You can have everything… by @shysweetthing:  “ AU. Before the Grand Prix Final starts in Sochi, Yuuri finds Victor’s phone. He returns it–and hijinks and heavy flirtation ensue.”  Obviously written before Kubo said that Viktor knew who Yuuri was, but I really enjoyed it. :)

Goldskate88 has logged in by  katsudonfemmefatale:  The formatting might not be stellar, there are parts that have just a tiny bit “wall of text” feeling to them, but I personally think it’s worth it. “ Phichit encourages Yuuri to join an online figure skating forum, but what he doesn’t expect is for a certain user to change his life forever. Every time he sees the username GoldSkate88, Katsu92’s stomach can’t help but do a flip, but how will this affect his upcoming Grand Prix competition?”  Explicit (for message sex/skype sex)  Lots of plot, but porn too.

Might as well keep the porn together

silver by @pageleaf: Post GPF in Barcelona.  Viktor won’t kiss silver.  Yuuri uses that.  I like this because it actually delves into their dynamic a little with Yuuri as the dom.  And it keeps building the tension as well.  Explicit.

From the smut to the funny

Who is Coach Yuuri? by glitteryimagay:  Four teen skaters have been selected to be coached at Viktor Nikiforov’s rink, but Viktor has other obligations and can’t personally coach them, so it falls to Coach Yuuri.  And they have no idea who he is and just never think to google it. XD  A little farfetched, but I love it.  It’s funny. The four OC characters are pretty decently built up too.

Life in a Beautiful Light by Budinca:  “ Yuuri’s moving in was a complicated process.”  Yuuri moves in with Viktor in Saint Petersburg.  This one is a little hard to explain.  It’s a very introspective piece.  Soft and Lovely.

Repeat After Me by queenieofaces:  “ Victor learns language through mimicry, hears phrases and repeats them back until the inflection becomes second nature. Yuuri seems to communicate best through euphemism, through metaphor, through talking around the subject rather than approaching it head on, and so Victor tries his best to mimic him, to take his words and echo them back.”  It speaks to me mostly because I live in a country where I don’t speak the language yet (seriously trying to find time to take language classes while taking care of a toddler is hard).

There’s another fic that is similar and quickly making the everyone recs list and while I love it, I won’t list it because of reasons.

I was looking for, but I can’t find it in my history… I really should get better about using bookmarks… but I think this is enough to start with.  I’ll dig up more if people actually like this.  (And I still won’t rec those fics. :P)

my new goal is to raise a kid as hilariously thoughtful as my seven-year-old nephew, who facetimed me today and very very seriously said “i wanted to say hello sooner but i made a note next to your name that i am never supposed to call you before 10 am”

RGF (Resting Grumpy Face) - it’s a thing, and I have it!

Hi guys, I’m Maddie at Fur-Gotten Tails Animal Rescue​ in Plainville, Connecticut. Please don’t let my RGF fool you - I’m actually very sweet, loving and mellow! But I’m pretty sure my “condition” is why I’ve been passed over for TWO years. I hear some humans have a similar condition so maybe you can relate?

Anyway, I’m a half-glass full kinda gal and tend to like that most people don’t believe that I’m a 10 years old…  thanks to my lack of smile lines, perhaps? (Hehe!)

Bottom line, I’ve got a TON of love to give and would do well with humans and possibly another laid back cat or dog. And, although I’m not big on it myself, I promise I’ll make YOU smile. A lot. Seriously. Just look at my face.

Now go call 860-308-0899 or email

And hey, shares make me smile! JK.

Love ya,

i swear to fuck when that anon went "oh my god children cant judge whats real and whats fictional" i thought they were being sarcastic, but apparently not. what age are these "children" they're speaking of, though? 7-10 yo? 10-18 yo? i'm aware that fiction affects reality to some extent but seriously if by the age of 7, a kid thinks it's ok to be in a relationship with a grown ass adult then it's probably more his teachers/educators/the parents' fault than the fault of a fucking ship.

You know how much I cared about characters’ ages when I was watching shows as a kid? I’d interpret them how it suited me.

I was 7~8 when A:tla first aired in my country, and I didn’t care whether A/ang was supposed to resemble a 12 year old or a 100 year old or a toddler. I also had zero interest in romantic relationships. 7 year old me couldn’t have given less of a shit about dating.

According to antis, children will think anything they see on TV is something they should imitate irl. By that logic, kids shouldn’t be watching shows like Vo/tron at all, where physical violence is a quite prevalent topic. “Protect the children-” mimimimi they cry as they scroll through the tumblr tags of ships they hate. Literal toddlers have a better understanding of how fictiom affects reality than a bunch of teenagers on this site do. It’d be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad.

luxlithos  asked:

The Crystal wonders why their Chosen is practicing with that spear... (Because you are a DRG


Areadbhar within his hands, a spear that he picked up… he was quite intrigued by it and decided to take up the ways of the Dragoon, a healer he may be but that didn’t mean he couldn’t give other combat styles a try. Practicing with the spear wasn’t at all easy, he had to learn how to be fast and jump high, albeit, the warp strike did help with that last part. Bit of a cheat on Ardyn’s behalf. But that didn’t really matter much as real dragoons drew their power from a great dragon known as Nidhogg… not something he could exactly do as he didn’t even know how and where to find the dragon, was it even friendly? He didn’t know and he wasn’t finding out.

Channeling his Lucian magic, concentrating hard, he used it to leap into the air and land a devastating to the Bloodhorn, killing it. Smiling that his hard work finally paid off, he would soon be able to challenge deadlier and more dangerous enemies like this. Why hadn’t he give this kind of combat a go sooner? It was definitely fun and kept him on his toes. Just remembering how certain moves were done and linked were difficult at first, but with practice he soon got the hang of them.

He knew this fun would be short lived though, he was required to heal the people of the scourge. Maybe after he done that, he may be able to become an actual Dragoon… travel to the plains of Coerthas where masters were known to be found, he had something to look forward to.

Setting the lance down and picking up his trident, yes, he would become a Dragoon after he done what was required first, his people here in Solheim needed him first.


Why Don’t You Act Your Age? 

Music, fashion, entertainment is cyclical. We’re forever borrowing pieces of the past and mashing them with what we’ve got in the present. And the themes of our generation that weave themselves into our lyrics aren’t radical, they’ve been sown before. But our timelines have been condensed by the influx of information on the Internet, patterns emerge sooner.

When I was 10 years old, Blink-182 was my favorite band and Enema Of The State was my soundtrack. In the 90s and early 2000s, Blink represented subversive fun and meta-commentary. Grunge of the early 90s had equated teen angst with a seriousness and misery, but Blink 182 was more accessible, more about pop-punk fun and making fun of themselves. They stood apart even from other bands in their genre, who preferred  the ultra bro-y, intense vibes. And to me now, Blink-182s harsh singing, loud guitar melodies and anthemic choruses are the epitome of pop-punk.

What’s My Age Again especially was a favorite for my tween self, every part from that instantly recognizable opening guitar riff to the absurdity of men running the streets naked.

The whole song is about the kind of bliss ignorance provides. Our man-child narrator doesn’t get Caller ID or why his girlfriend didn’t feel like making out to a soundtrack of live access television. He’s kind of a dick, but he makes a compelling point:

With many years ahead to fall in line
Why would you wish that on me?
I never wanna act my age

We attribute responsibility to age and each year seems to be hallmarked with new rules to dictate how you “should” be behaving (especially for a 10-year old girl). Blink-182 was telling me, for the first time, that none of that mattered. And for my young mind, it was nothing short of awesome. These grown adult men acting with no deference? Making no sense? In my life, adults didn’t make fools of themselves.

Last year, independent hip-hop artist Hoodie Allen released his second studio album, People Keep Talking. With it came the song Act My Age.  I loved it immediately and found it resonated with me as a 25 year-old the same way Blink 182’s What’s My Age Again resonated with me as a 10 year-old.

Sure, Blink’s lyrics are more self-deprecating, Hoodie’s got a little more confidence but nobody is being directed by the DMV orange cones of destiny.  They’re going their own way. Similarly to Blink-182’s emblematic role in a generation of pop-punk, Hoodie’s song represents this era’s music, the meld of genres: the rap-singing build up to a pop-leaning chorus. 

Before turning his attention to music full time, Hoodie Allen graduated from college and briefly worked at Google. He embodied the millennial definition of modern day, on-track success. But Hoodie left that world and this song is a celebration of that. He reminds me that of how I wish I had left that path too. I’m tired of the trite definitions of what I am meant to do and how I am meant to do them. I am tired of the path I belabored that has led me nowhere.

Gettin’ a job is like a pregnant woman givin’ birth/You’re tryna push me in the wrong direction and it fuckin’ hurts

Both songs are about almost arrogantly, purposefully going off book. Both songs are talking about shirking conformity, about seeing (and—especially for Hoodie—celebrating) your own differences.

People trying to make me change, you’d think there was a quota
Like there ain’t enough unemployed motherfuckers with diplomas

I know that in the last 15 years a lot about me has changed but apparently not my desire to do things differently. At 10, I needed to know that it was a possibility and at 25, I needed to see it be an actuality. You reach your mid-20s and suddenly, your friends are all in significant relationships, receiving promotions at their career-driven jobs—some are even having kids or starting retirement plans.

And you? You have a blog, a regularly updated Twitter feed and maybe a pet cat.

But Hoodie reminds us, like Blink did (and arguably, still does), to not give a fuck. To not feel stunted or “behind the curve” just because our lives are messy, disorganized or different. Besides, I don't think I'm ever gonna act my age.

Just rewatched Love and Monsters, and I’m kinda baffled as to why people don’t like the episode. And first of all, I think one of the biggest reasons for this is that people don’t understand where the Abzorbaloff idea came from.

So if you take nothing else from the post, take this: the Abzorbaloff was designed by Blue Peter competition winner William Grantham. You think the monster is childish? It was designed by a 10 year old child.

Also, I get that it’s a childish/ comedy episode, but then the monster is comedian Peter Kay in green prosthetics, so… *shrugs*. Basically, I think this is the Doctor Who equivalent of the ‘lighter’/ ‘more comedic’ X Files episodes like ‘Mulder and Scully meet the Were-Monster’/ ‘Bad Blood’ etc. It’s not supposed to be a totally serious episode. So if that’s not your bag, that makes sense. But it’s not supposed to be taken totally seriously, it’s a more light-hearted production even if it deals with serious topics. 

But the other reasons I don’t understand why people don’t like the episode are:

  • It’s an episode about loss.

The most obvious of these are Elton and Jackie. For Elton, the episode is about him wanting to find out why he met the Doctor as a child, where he then discovers that it was the night he lost his mum. He is also the only member of LINDA who survives the episode (and doesn’t end up in a slab of concrete), and loses his friends.

With Jackie, it’s about her dealing with the Doctor and Rose not being around, but also how she deals without Mickey. She admits herself in the episode that she usually had Mickey around to help out with DIY, and you just know that he was round there more than just when her washing machine broke. He was a friend, who she could complain about Rose’s lack of phone calls and the Doctor’s poor manners to.

MMFR novelty T-shirts, part 2! (Part 1)

Had SO MUCH FUN with this (even though I spent 1000 years on every wife and 10 minutes on everybody else.) Got some help and suggestions: sickmonkey1027 suggested Foxy Grandpa for Ace and gatsbygal suggested Joe in a Female Body Inspector shirt (which might be the sleaziest thing I’ve ever drawn, I feel the need to wash my tablet with soap) Also I think someone mentioned a “if lost, return to Slit” in the old post so I totally stole that idea for Cheedo.

Personal favorites are the two last one. For Max I couldn’t find ANYTHING and for Furiosa I found TOO MUCH (seriously, do you know how many horrendous trucker/asskicking novelty shirts there are out there? It’s kinda overwhelming) Then I googled “dog novelty t-shirt” AND GUESS WHAT POPPED UP ON THE FIRST PAGE. Same with Haul It Like You Stole It, when I laid my eyes on that beauty I just knew it was the one.
