According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.Yellow, black.

My truth...

For those who follow me - and I know there aren’t many, but I appreciate each one of them - you may change your mind after you read my truth. I have seen the marches all over the world and in my country. I am American and a proud, strong woman. I personally had to take a company to file because of inequality. There were five of us, paid a great deal less than the two men doing the same job, and I stood ALONE because the others were afraid. I know what it is like to be pulled over for being a nice looking woman driving a sports car and FOLLOWING the law. I fought that too.
I can also tell you that I will NOT be called a NASTY WOMAN. I want to be thought of as a strong and independent woman who tries always to choose LOVE and not hate. There ain’t no NASTY in that!
I feel for Cait for when expressing her thoughts and feelings by marching, she receives hate and retribution. I may not agree with everything Cait believes or says but I respect her by not commenting my disagreements. Especially on her personal IG account. What has moved me to write tonight is in response to one of those comments. After several awful comments, this one followed with, “I guarantee it was written by a Trump voter.” Now, the strong, independent woman I am is gonna blow.
I voted for Trump. I did not want Secretary Clinton to be my first woman president. For SEVERAL reasons. He was not my candidate but I could not vote for her. I live my life trying always to be fair and kind and loving. I never comment on others’ personal accounts if I cannot do so in love. My momma always told me that if I don’t have something nice to say, keep my mouth shut.
And I’m not the only one.
I know MANY Godly, respectable, charitable, and loving people who also voted for Trump. I am not anti-immigration - I am pro LEGAL immigration. I am not anti Muslim, anti gay, LGBTQ, or any of those other things that us Trump voters are called and labeled. I want our country to be strong and safe and if voting for him loses followers, than so be it. Please, for all of our sakes, think before you call people names or label them. Being negative and spewing that constant negativity will NEVER win.
We here, in this fandom, profess to love and support one another. That is why we are here and we are drawn together, by love not hate.
If I can’t be crazy for Sam and Cait and Outlander, AND a Trump voter then I will have to be all those things by myself. And I can do that, but I sure don’t want to. It’s more fun here with you!
But remember one thing - My Truth - is as real and as significant as yours’. I will respect that always.

Nothing Like a Lawful Neutral

Context: My fighter is the only Lawful Neutral character on a team consisting of a True Neutral halfling monk, a Chaotic Neutral tiefling warlock, and a Neutral Good half-elf ranger with a bad impression of laws in general. They’re all endearingly nuts in their own way, and, well. He fits in like soy sauce on mashed potatoes.

-

Warlock: *after surviving the shipwreck that nearly killed all of us* So you worked for the people transporting us?

Fighter: Money doesn’t grow on trees. Of course I was.

Ranger: You know it was a slave ship right?

Fighter: You were getting transported to prison! The only thing enslaving you are the consequences of your crimes.

-

Monk: You not gonna like, wrangle us into line?

Fighter: Why.

Monk: I mean, you were a guard, right? You arrest people.

Fighter: We are in the middle of a jungle. What laws could you possibly be breaking?

Ranger: *OOC* I roll to see what impossible feats of physics-defying tricks I can do to piss this guy off.

-

Warlock: So are we going back to jail if we get to a place where there’s a jail?

Fighter: I mean, they feed you in most prisons. Terrible food, but it’s free.

Warlock: …Damn he right.

-

Ranger: Do you arrest people even when they’re doing the right thing?

Fighter: Everyone should be held accountable for their actions regardless of intentions.

Ranger: Easy for you to say.

Fighter: Listen, I got banished from my country and disowned from my family because I was fucking my country’s Crown Prince. I deserve the rights to say this like it was easy.

Ranger: …Okay but that’s– Okay, you couldn’t have had good intentions about that.

Fighter: I think there were some good ones, but then he took off his shirt and I forgot what they were.

Monk: And I thought my getting kicked out of my temple for fapping during prayer was dramatic.

DM: …Oh. :-)

-

Ranger: You don’t have many friends, do you?

Fighter: I had some but the murder hobos fucking killed them all. :)

-

Warlock: Well at least you aren’t lecturing us on honor or anything.

Fighter: Honor is reliability. That’d like chanting Celestial to a demon.

Warlock:

Fighter:

Warlock: …Not all tieflings.

Soy sauce on mashed potatoes: weird taste, but acceptable.

I was thinking - you know that pic i posted the other day of Newt listening outside the door

Imagine like, if Graves and Newt were a couple and he went to visit Newts family. They were caring but giving all these backhanded compliments
‘Its great that Newt found someone who can put up with his eccentricities’

A lot of the desi men that my friends are dating, are engaged to, or married to, always start out as very progressive and caring partners. These men let my friends wear whatever they want, let them go out whenever they want, let them have careers, let them have guy friends, and promise them they won’t be bogged down by typical “bahu” chores. 

Then, they get married. 

Afterward, you start hearing of how married life is “completely different” from engagements or dating. Unmarried people just won’t understand. 

Already, there is pressure of having kids the day the bride leaves the wedding hall and on to live with her husband and in-laws. The husband reassures the bride that she should consider leaving her studies, but only for a bit, until they move out of the in-laws house and get their own place. 

The wife agrees because it sounds like a reasonable choice. After all, marriage is all about compromises. 

Then she leaves her home, possible her country, and moves in with her husband and in-laws. Since she doesn’t go to school and doesn’t need to work, she spends her whole day cooking and cleaning and complying to her in-laws’ every demand. 

Then, her husband finally comes home at the end of the day. But the husband is too tired to spend time with her. He just wants to chill out and have a cup of chai. She makes him a cup of chai. Her husband then goes to hang out with his dad watching cricket in the living room, or goes out with his friends that night for business-related things. She cleans up after him. She goes to sleep. 

Compromise. Sabr. Resilience. 

When will desi men realize that desi women have to sacrifice a hundred more things than you do in order for it to be even considered a compromise? Desi women have to have a million things done to them, to be angry about, for them to justify standing up for themselves. In our culture, the mere demand for wives to be treated as equals in the household is a mess. 

1 November // New month to slay. October was a particularly difficult month for me - new university, new town, new country, new continent. But today I was selected to attend a brunch with a huge law firm in the UK through Women in Business, and it was absolutely wonderful. Received some amazing advice from prominent and successful women at the firm. I also found out today that I’ve been chosen to represent my university at a national moot competition!! I am so happy and feel so motivated again after a long dip last month. Ready to take on the month and all its challenges and opportunities. November 2016, I’m coming for you 💪🏼💪🏼

How to let go of study stress; 8 ways

I am in my final year of law school and always very busy. When my exams come up, studying 9-13 hours a day for a few weeks is normal routine for me. This is how I stay as relaxed as possible. My tips for you:

1. Take a long warm shower or bath. Not just your normal routine but let the warmth of the water heat you and all your muscles up. Scrub yourself clean with your favorite products. After your clean and dry again, do a full beauty routine; body oils or lotions, eye/face cream etc. Taking time to take care of your body is important for your mind as well since you can focus on that for a bit and relax.

2. If you feel like you are constantly tired every day and just feel like you have a huge lack of sleep and energy; just SLEEP. Take a day of from everything and sleep as much as possible. Try to spend the whole day in your bed and take naps between reading relaxing books/watching Netflix. This may seem like you are wasting but if you really need sleep, this will help you feel so much better for days afterwards! You will be more energized and will make up for that ‘lost’ time very quickly and you’ll feel much better as well.

3. If you are really close to some deadlines and really have no time to take time off from your duties than try to multitask relaxing things. Don’t eat while working, but watch a nice television show or some YouTube videos while you eat. Like this you still did some fun things and took your mind of your work a bit. You have to eat anyway and it won’t cost you to much time when you only spend those moments away from your studies.

4. Take a power nap when you feel very stressed. Even if you think you are not particularly tired, just try to sleep for about 20 minutes and you will shut out that stress again. If you can’t sleep; meditate or listen to some relaxing songs while laying down and doing nothing at all.

5. Call a family member or a friend, just to talk. This doesn’t have to be about your studies. Just chill a bit and talk about everything you like. Complain a bit, hear their complains and know you are not alone with your stress. :) This will take your mind of things and can get you in a better mood.

6. Make your study spot as comfortable as possible. Make sure everything is quite tidy and there is no rubbish or trash lying around. A clean space is truly a clean mind. Of course you may need a lot of notes/books/stuff but sort them into piles and have a ‘structure’ on your desk. Light a few candles, wear comfortable clothes and put a pillow in your back. Have some nice tea or coffee and a few healthy snacks like fruit and nuts. Make it as comfortable as possible and you’ll feel way more chill.

7. Go work at a coffee shop and treat yourself with a nice latte.

8. Go study at your university library and go with flow of all the other motivated students. When you surround yourself with other people studying you will become more motivated and get more work done. Also, when you see that everyone is busy, you feel a bit better. It’s not just you, it’s hard for everyone.

sure, cuba is a better place in literally every meaningful regard than it was under batista. sure, cuba has a far more robust, participatory democracy than basically any other country. sure, those executed after the revolution were literal fucking torturers and murderers, people the masses would have done far crueller things to anyway. sure, cuba has been able to weather an effective blockade and still has a higher standard of living than nearly other latin american country. sure, cuba has criminalized racial and sexual orientation discrimination and is much better at enforcing those laws than the us. but if you ignore all of that, then fidel castro was actually evil i guess

So I was just thinking about those posts you get in the Discworld tag about the way belief works on the Disc and how Vetinari and/or Vimes is so integral to the way Ankh-Morpork works that they might just sort of… not ever die.

You know, the ones like ‘Vimes is going to become a god of policemen and he’s going to hate it”.

Well. What if it happens to both of them? There are two parts to the city, after all. ‘Proud Ankh’ needs taking down a peg or two (or seven) by Sam Vimes, and if anyone can terrify ‘pestilent Morpork’ into being better then it’s Havelock Vetinari. And they can drive each other mad with stealth puns for centuries, if they want.

Also, this would potentially make them literally Law And Order, and that just seems very fitting in a way that would probably annoy them both.

Do you have any hcs on Ace, Zoro, Law, Sanji, and Kid on how life would be with their newborn baby? Thank you!

I. AM. AND. WILL. ALWAYS. BE. A. SUCKER. FOR. PARENTAL. HEADCANONS!

Ace 

  • a fucking natural at this
  • knows what his baby needs whenever it needs it
  • his baby would just…calm down right after being placed in his arms, what the hell Ace, tell us your secret
  • makes grimaces at his baby and tries to get them to giggle or smile
  • he’s just on cloud nine with this kid, marvels at everything they do and shows them around everywhere
  • Ace it’s ok Newgate, Dadan, Garp, Luffy, Sabo, Marco and Makino all fucking love your baby, but now keep it cool

Zoro

  • where the fuck is the turn off button?
  • yells after his crewmates when he has no idea what to do which is all the time in different tones, octaves and emotions, mostly he yells after Robin, Brook, Sanji, Jinbe and Chopper so they can help him figure shit out
  • he probably set their crib right next to him and watches his baby like a guard dog whenever they’re sleeping, his hands right by his katanas when he hears as much as ‘suspicious’ footsteps
  • it surprised him that he enjoys feeding them with the bottle 

Law

  • *footage of Law banging his head against his desk as his baby starts screaming*
  • “Now Cora-san’s fruit would really come in handy…”
  • he knows how to wash a baby, or feed it or change it or hold it, that’s all no problem but he has hard time figuring out what the baby wants 
  • reads bedtime stories about gross diseases for his ecstatic baby and loves cuddling with them
  • he’d be secretly really proud because his kid would be a really handsome little boy or pretty little girl

Sanji

  • *luckiest swirly browed fool on planet fucking earth*
  • HE TOTALLY would get one of those babyslings or backpacks so he can keep his nugget close to him at all times while he can still focus on cooking and everything
  • has already spend too much money on cute prince or princess costumes before it was born
  • *Nami’s voice* “Sanji you’re spoiling your kid too much..already”
  • he just loves them so much, he spends every minute kissing their feet, hands, nose, ears, mouth

Kid

  • shit, shit, shit
  • he has no fucking idea what he does 24/7 and his crewmates ain’t helpful because they don’t really know shit about babies either
  • he does kind of like the bath times tho, because he’s not afraid to get messy and all
  • would probably brutally beat up anybody that looks at his kid the wrong way
  • calls his baby “lil’ asskicker”
  • he loves it when the baby balls up their tiny hands to fists, like they’re ready to fight
  • Lafayette: Alexander, after much deliberation, I've made a decision. You're a tragic, orphaned child, but you deserve a mother. I think you need a new one.
  • Hamilton: Wha - oh no.
  • Lafayette: From this fateful day forth, Monsieur Alexander Hamilton, I will be your mother.
  • Hamilton: Hmmm. All right. I can live with that.
  • Hamilton: But who's the father? Laurens?
  • Lafayette: *smirks* No, he's my son-in-law.
  • Laurens: *stands up and leaves the room*
  • Hamilton: *stands up and leaves the room*
  • Mulligan: *applauds*

Finals update: I’m halfway through exams after finishing evidence and constitutional law I. Now I’ve got just about a week until my next, last, and toughest two exams. Hopefully I get a lot of good studying in between now and then! Hope you all are surviving finals okay!

listen i still think one of the funniest s3 moments was when clarke is talking crazy about taking the chip after she has the flame in her, and abby is like ‘clarke no’ and then bellamy is all ‘clarke yes’ with his i believe you

…and abby just closes her eyes in sheer done-ness like sON-in-law no u just didnt bc now she is definitely going to do it damn it

ok, I’ve been toying with this idea for a couple of days now. Is there anyone at all in the Fantastic Beasts fandom who’d be interested in me writing a Thief!Newt AU fic? 

Newt comes to New York on the run from both Muggle and wizard law enforcement, with a case full of valuables and the creatures he’s rescued from terrible owners and the like—apparently there are still countries where they’re considered possessions, and Newt is Having None Of That, thank you very much. 

or him being exasperated with the niffler, not because of the stealing, but because the little beast does it poorly. Newt sighing and saying: “You’d think after accompanying me on enough heists he’d have learned some finesse by now.”

Dems better spend the next 3 fucking years grooming a better candidate

No more of this “it’s so-and-so’s turn”.

The current President elect was LITERALLY endorsed by the fucking KKK. KKK members are on twitter BRAGGING about how big of a part they had in getting this man elected. 

How the FUCK do you LOSE to that?!

Dems need to get their shit together and stop assuming that people are “smarter” than they are. Clearly, the time for expecting the adults to be in charge has passed. 

My sister in law texted me last night and told me she was literally CRYING because she has to tell her daughters that our president is Trump. Like. We HAVE to get him out in 4 years (which is going to be hard because no matter how badly he fucks everything up, the electorate is reluctant to unseat an incumbent president after 4 years), hopefully all they will remember of him will be in their history books (which I’m sure Texas will make sure are 100% accurate).

I’m in a reliably blue state that did what we needed to do for the national elections, but I’m still going to be side-eyeing the fuck out of white people today, especially white women. 

Hour Four : Inside & Out

Prompt : “An angel with the Dark Knight. How ironic.”

A/N : Lol I was listening to the HSM soundtrack when I wrote this (4 of 24)

Pairing : Bruce Wayne x Reader

[•] [•] [•]

Tonight was the annual Gotham Halloween Gala, and like the pass several years or so, the Wayne family was invited.

Upon arriving, you ushered your children, husband, and honorary father-in-law in position to take a group picture on the red carpet. “I expect all of you to look like you at least like each other,” You said mainly to your sons, “or else no patrol for a week.”

“Yes, ma'am.” “Yeah, yeah.” “Yes, mother.”

You smiled, satisfied with their answers and smiled brightly at the flashing cameras.

After pictures, you and your family made your way inside before Jason could complain about how empty his stomach was. Out of your five children, Jason was the worse at keeping his public image intact. It was a wonder how no one knew he was Red Hood yet.

On the way, Bruce placed a warm hand on your exposed back and leaned close to your ear, “Have I told you how unbelievably beautiful you look tonight?” He whispered.

You smiled and placed a kiss on his cheek. He’s been telling you how amazing white looked on you ever since you put the dress on. However, you never had the chance to reply as Alfred did it for you. “I believe you have, Master Bruce.”

You released a breathy laugh, “Thanks, Alfred.”

He smiled, “It’s always a pleasure, Miss. Y/N.”

“Goddammit!” Jason cursed loudly, drawing disapproving looks from the people passing by. Some stopped once they realized that he was one of Bruce Wayne’s sons. “They don’t have any chili dogs.”

Damian scrunched his nose, “Why would they serve such…trash?” He said, drinking his sprite as though he was drinking champagne.

“Mama!” Jason whined, and you sighed. His actions as Red Hood made you forget that he was still a huge momma’s boy sometimes.

When he was younger, you didn’t mind and you still didn’t, but he was almost in his twenties! He shouldn’t rant to you every time something goes wrong.

Bruce chuckled, “Our son is calling for you, Batmom.” He told you, using the nickname he and your children used when they were dressed as their alter egos.

“Like I didn’t hear him.” You mumbled, nudging your husband in his side softly before turning your attention to Jason. “Yes, Jason. What is it?”

“Can I go buy some chili dogs?” He asked with the most adorable puppy dog eyes ever.

“I’ll go with him,” Cassie injected, shifting uncomfortably in her costume. She really regretting wearing it tonight.

You rolled your eyes, “Sure, but you two better come back afterwards.” Jason and Cassie exchanged a quick high-five and literally ran out of the building.

“An angel with the Dark Knight. How ironic.” The familiar voice belonging to Jim Gordon said, smiling as he and his daughter joined your reserved table.

He had found out about Bruce’s secret identity a long time ago. Barbara was dating Dick after all. It was only a matter of time.

“I’m surprised you let them go, mom.” Dick said, wrapping his arm around Barbara after greetings were exchanged with the Gordon’s.

“It’s better than having him go on and on about it for two hours.” You said, shrugging.

“She really is an angel, isn’t she?” Bruce said, smiling lovingly down at you. “God only knows what I would do without you.”

You smirked, imagining a frustrated Bruce chasing around four boys and one girl around Wayne Manor. “Let’s not think about that, sweetheart.”

Why?

Why was Toph put as a police officer? She hates rules and it doesn’t seem like a job she would enjoy wtf?
How about if you just made her a pro wrestler! She loved doing that, maybe she would get super famous and have fan girls, that would be awesome. While I’m at it, why she in a swamp? Makes no sense, she ain’t shrek wtf she deserves a happy family after what she’s been through!!!

Instead of Toph enforcing law and order in Republic City, why not the Kyoshi warriors? They were basically body guards for Zuko and didn’t really have a purpose so why not? That would be cool seeing Suki all badass and expanding the group of the kyoshi.

Why was Katara reduced to just a healer and a mom? I don’t know about you guys but I think she would have made a great president for Republic City, I think that she would be able to help create peace and bring the nations together just as much as Aang would. And maybe she would get a fucking statue!!! Cmon!?
Oh and she could work with zuko and shit, didn’t have to be romantic I just wanna c them hang out instead of pretending like they mean nothing to each other!

Why did you have to make the Kataang marriage so broken and sad? Why couldn’t they just have normal family issues? Why couldnt they be a strong loving family?!?

Need to know more about Zuko dude, oh he had a daughter, mhmm mhhm ok WITH WHO?!? is she an only child or?? Also I wanna c more Iroh Jr cuz damn.

Wtf happened to Sokka? Did he have babies?! With who? Why you do this to me!?!!?
