I’m so grateful for The Flash. Overwhelmingly, it’s a spectacular show that has brought a lot of good into my life.
I’m also grateful for all of you. The Flash was fun when I watched it on my own, but you really have expanded my horizons so much farther through meta, made me laugh and smile with texts, and taken my breath away with art and fic and edits. You’ve added to my overall experience. Thank you.
My life is better for The Flash – and the people I’ve met through it.
Omg , i love u so so much , finally I found a good artist that can really draw , I hope you're self-confident and you know that you're the best . Continue the great job
Waah thank you so much! ❤ Maybe I am not the most self-confident person but this message sure made me feel much better. Thank you lots for caring! I appreciate it. Idk how to thank properly..
Just remember I am extremely grateful ❤
Hi! I hope this isn't creepy but I just felt like telling you that you're my role model and I really look up to you. You're intelligent, witty and genuinely woke as hell. You know what you stand for and believe in (and are actually consistent) and always keeping it 100. I've actually become a better person since I started following your blog. I'm much more aware and educated about the many problems in this country and around the world, and I get a little more woke each day. You're truly #goals
Mere words cannot express how grateful and humbled I am by your kind message. I appreciate it so much and I promise to pay it forward and be a source of more kindness in this cold world.
i think a really important thing to note from this is that harry would always take the opportunity to uplift others rather than himself. From a direct quote, he said, “if i can kind of do as well as the other boys, that would be great.” the image so many people have about him is he’s this pretentious popstar who decided he would be better than his roots. Once you actually know what harry thinks, it becomes glaringly obvious that he is always grateful for everything he learned throughout his life so far. He always emphasizes the achievements of others rather than his own, and uses that to push him as all to be better. Harry is the kindest most grateful person i know and we really don’t deserve him.
You’re allowed to be annoyed at certain kinds of “supporters”.
You don’t have to be grateful for “support” that makes you uncomfortable.
This applies to:
- the overly curious “supporters”. The ones who constantly ask you about things that are not their business. (”You’re bi? How many boys did you fuck? How many girls? Ever had a threesome? I bet you had a threesome, tell me all about it!”). You deserve better than to be reduced to your sexual history.
- the super straight “allies”. The ones who constantly need to remind you they’re straight. (”You’re gay? As a straight person, i’m cool with that. I’m a straight gay supporter. But don’t think i’m gay, i just support you, but like as a straight friend, so don’t hit on me, okay? I’m not gay myself, so i don’t want to date you, okay? I’m just a straight supporter.”) You deserve better than to be treated as a predator who hits on everyone.
- the “allies” in theory. The ones who totally support you…. in theory.. ( “I totally support the lgbt+ community!… What, she uses he/him now? That’s ridiculous. And why would she want to go into the mens bathroom, that’s just creepy.”) You deserve better than empty words.
- the “straight best friend”. Typically straight girls who see gay boys as a cool fashion accessory. (”You’re gay? Soooo cute! I have a gay best friend now! Hey, everyone, look at my gay best friend, isn’t he cute?”) You deserve better than to be to be collected and shown off like a exotic pet.
- the tokenizer. The ones who use you as proof of how inclusive they are or act as if they’re special for treating you with a basic level of respect. (”I’m not transphobic, one of my friends is trans!”, “I even called you “she” in front of others today, i mean, who would do that? You’re lucky you have a friend like me.”) You deserve better than to be used to make someone else look like a good person.
You’re not a “snowflake” for not wanting to be treated as a second-class human being.
You’re not “greedy” for demanding genuine support respect.
1. wish I brought a stylus on this trip
2. wish i had more time to make a better drawing
3. wish the wifi was working last night so i could’ve gotten this up earlier
4. wish i could express how grateful i am to be one of the 15 million whose lives were changed by @therealjacksepticeye
whether it was by keeping me company, teaching me something new, or reminding me to be selfless, loving, hard working, and positive, jack has done so many things for me and for millions of other people, and i thank you so, so much
I received my advance copy of @dndwizards’s new book Tales from the Yawning Portal not quite a week ago. If you haven’t heard of this book here’s the gist of it:
TftYP is a collection of seven ‘classic’ dungeon adventures from D&D editions past, all updated with fifth edition rules. In this book you get…
Against the Giants (AD&D)
Dead in Thay (D&D Next)
Forge of Fury (D&D 3e)
Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan (AD&D)
The Sunless Citadel (D&D 3e)
Tomb of Horrors (AD&D)
White Plume Mountain (AD&D)
All of the maps and layout have been updated to make them easier on the eyes, while their traps, monsters, structure, and challenges remains largely unchanged. TftYP is a ‘best of’ book, rather than a remake or reboot of these adventures.
If you’re a millennial who got into D&D through things like Acquisitions Inc, The Adventure Zone, or Critical Role, my take on this book is gonna be of interest to you…because this book might be specifically FOR YOU.
I think what bothers me when discussing earth signs and houses (2, 6, 10) is that while I’m aware that earth rules the material and physical plane, that’s all they’re reduced to be, it seems. It’s so capitalistic, how they’re reduced to that. That’s not all that matters about earth signs. That’s why you get a bunch of people complaining about how “boring” earth signs are, because astrologers both beginner and advanced have a fundamental misconception about the domain of earth.
Where Cancer is the private sphere and responsibility to one’s home, Capricorn is the public sphere and responsibility to the public. Where Scorpio is death and transformation, Taurus is life and growth. Where Pisces is self-sacrifice for the greater whole, Virgo is self-sacrifice in a one on one context. The earth signs extend beyond possessions, jobs, careers, and money. They do rule these things, it’s true, but so many astrologers reduce their domain to just these things.
Earth is how we make ourselves comfortable, how we come into being our best self, what we value, what we surround ourself with. Earth is all about growth for better or for worse. Unlike the rapid and dramatic changes the water sign counterparts of earth signs call for, earth signs demand a slow grind. Earth signs and houses hold the keys to how we gain wisdom.
Capricorn reminds us that you can’t just make one huge sweeping change and call it a day, that you need to work and practice at change to cement it. Virgo helps us to become less selfish by reminding us, after the lessons Leo teaches us, that the world is not just about us but others. Taurus teaches us to be grateful and to value the things surrounding us, that we can slow down and enjoy life, that nothing is a race. Earth signs teach us to keep our ego in check, always coming after fire signs to provide some grounding, a reality check.
We’re always seeking some sort of new enlightenment. Earth signs aren’t overtly about enlightenment but that is what you’ll gain with the dedication that they teach us in life.

zimbits au wherein a run in with the lax bros leads to a run in with jack
Eric’s walking down the street, latte in one hand and
phone in the other, only a very little bit lost on his spontaneous scenic
detour to the library. He’s halfway through composing a tweet when several
air-horns blast in his direction at once.
He swears, jumps about a mile out of his skin, and
drops both his coffee and his phone.
The coffee, sadly, goes up before it comes down, and
manages to splash all over his front before spilling across his shoes too. He
quickly retrieves his phone from the pavement before it’s similarly attacked by
the travelling coffee, and checks it over for damage. He sighs out when he sees
it’s only a little scratched on the side of the case, and presses a palm to his
chest to try and calm the furious beating of his heart.
He looks over to the house across the way, out of
which several, men—actually, boys, Eric’s
going to call them after that stunt—are laughing at him, and high-fiving each
other. Eric flushes and screws his lips together, telling himself not to cry in
front of them, not to give them the satisfaction.
Eric looks behind him to see a moustached man flipping
the bird to the boys in the house across the street.
“Fuck off to your basement of inadequacy and wine
coolers, you absolute shitfuckers.”
The boys don’t take his advice, but rather, blast their
air-horns again which causes Eric to hunch up his shoulders.
“Hey, brah, you alright?” The man walks up to Eric and
looks him over. “Shit, dude. They got you good.”
Eric sighs out, trying to keep his composure. “It’s
alright. Thanks for telling them off.”
“Fucking LAX bros. I live for telling them off. Come
on inside and I’ll help you clean up.”
Can we stop telling fan fiction writers how to write their stories? Like if they want to make a certain character vulnerable or closed off it’s their decision. If you don’t like it, stop reading the story. Better yet, write your own. A lot of times you’ll realize that it’s pretty fucking hard to write a decent fic. Some authors just have ideas and want to tell a story, they want your input but if you tell them to change a whole fucking character it’s a bit rude. It’s like telling them to change their whole story, a story that they have spent countless hours writing and worrying about just for your entertainment. Instead of being rude about how the author chooses to write a character how about you be a bit grateful that their even writing a story. They didn’t have to in the first place.
Taemin and Jonghyun’s microphones completely stopped working around Replay. During Replay, Minho and Taemin swapped microphones around, and Jongyu also swapped microphones in between parts.
Key mentioned going to Niagara Falls with Onew. Onew said that the beauty of the falls made him lost for words. Key later also mentioned going to the CN tower with Minho, but they didn’t go to the top because there were too many people.
Onew: “In my head, I always thought of Canada as a very cold place. But it’s very hot in here.” <3
The music stopped abruptly during Prism. The members were very professional, and tried to encourage Shawols to sing along without music.
Onjongtae apologized for the technical issues during a costume change. Taemin looked especially sad about the mic/sound difficulties and kept apologizing :(
Jonghyun and Onew tried to get Taemin to talk about his solo, giving him thumbs ups. Instead, Taemin shyly changed the topic to “there are many performances left tonight.”
Minho didn’t expect the amount of support/cheering tonight. He was very touched.
Key talked about the ‘instagram life’ and that he can’t control what time he has ‘live broadcasts’ on the platform. He wishes to be on there more to interact with fans but that is also dependent on the company. He also mentioned being sleepy due to the jet lag, and apologized for his English (fans were very touched at his attempts!)
Key also talked about really liking Youtube reaction videos, often searching ‘1 of 1 reaction video’ and others. He says he couldn’t stop watching them.
Minho talked in English for a while, and then Key talked again, until he said in Korean that he forgot they had an interpreter.
A lot of Shawols were surprised at Minho’s English, he improved a lot. Jonghyun would occasionally chime in ‘yes’, ‘let’s go’, but Onjongtae mostly spoke in Korean.
Everyone got super hyped during Lucifer and Key said “I see you guys really like Lucifer, huh?”
During ‘Ready or Not’, Jonghyun kept trying to step across sound speakers to move closer to the fans. He also stole a towel from a dancer and swung it around.
Minho’s closing remarks (in English!) :
Thank you for waiting, thank you for coming, thank you for screaming, I LOVE YOU.
Minho also stayed back/was the last to leave the stage, giving lots of thumbs up and waving to fans.
