you don't have to look close at all actually

How the signs seem to look at their surroundings from an outsider's view
  • Aries: They have a certain rationality when looking at things, but when something wakes up emotions in them, they can't seem to be seeing clearly at all.
  • Taurus: They have wonder in their eyes. Still a lot gets left without noticing.
  • Gemini: They can look like they loathe everything they see, but if you look closely you can see that they're just trying to find out about things.
  • Cancer: They show very clearly which things they like. WHat they don't like, gets looked at in a very specific way.
  • Leo: When they look at you, they seem to want to crush you with their gaze. But when they look away, it occurs that they can actually be quite fragile, because they can't cover everything up.
  • Virgo: Every little thing they notice gets analysed and then judged. Nothing seems to please them quite enough.
  • Libra: They'll risk ignoring important things to get a look at the pretty things they like.
  • Scorpio: They know what they want to see and look for it. Other things get pushed out of the way.
  • Sagittarius: There's something so gentle behind their eyes, but you can't always notice it when they look at somewhere else than straight at you.
  • Capricorn: They look at things to find out how it can help them show their best self. They usually seem to look at things very seriously.
  • Aquarius: They scan their surroundings quietly and only react to things they find interesting.
  • Pisces: At first they seem to be very wide-eyed, but when they look at something long enough, it all changes.

  • <p> <b>Wanna One:</b> the really popular group of kids that everyone wants to be a part of. people are lowkey scared of them, though when you get to know them you realize they're actually a bunch of dorks.<p/><b>JBJ:</b> the slightly less popular kids that EVERYONE loves. the sweetest and funniest, and just as dorky as wanna one. friends with literally everyone, weather they actually know them or now.<p/><b>RAINZ:</b> the weird kids that no one really knows anything about but they don't care because they have each other. will help you out if you need anything, even if they don't know you. they seem really quiet to outsiders but when you look closely they're actually the dorkiest of all.<p/></p>
So my mum took me shopping for some clothes for school.
  • Just like always, this is how it went:
  • Me: *goes into women's section to make my mum happy*
  • Mum: "oh, don't you like this! This is nice! HOW ABOUT THIS!"
  • Me: *looks at women's clothes, thinks to myself "I don't understand this shit"
  • Me: *complains about how women's clothes are made because seriously, some shirts I'd have to buy four of and where them all at the same time just so it's not see thru!!!*
  • Mum: "stop complaining, it's not me that makes the clothes!"
  • Me: "well y'know, some other sections of the store might have some close that actually make sense!"
  • *continues for about 10 minutes*
  • Mum: "fine. Y'know what, if you wanna look at the men's section go, but hurry up"
  • Me: *does a tiny fist pump of victory and skips over to the men's section happily like the person I am"
  • Me: *SO MANY NICE CLOTHES!!!!!!!!!!!"
  • After all that I finally bought three shirts and they all look AWESOME!!!

anonymous asked:

In that case, do you have any headcanons about L/B (au if you don't have any for canon)

  • All B’s talk about being an aggressive top? Lies. Bratty sub.
  • B HATES the L wash machine and sometimes physically drags L into the shower so he can ‘bathe like a human being’. 
  • L’s the first person in years to see B without his L makeup on.
  • B becomes L’s body double for certain cases. L HATES it, but B refuses to let L put his life on the line.
  • They both curl up awkwardly in small spaces to cuddle. It looks uncomfortable, but it’s warm and close and they feel happy and safe.
  • Beyond has actually come to HATE sugar in his years pretending to be L. So they each have their own coffee mugs, one for L’s sugary mix and one for B’s straight black coffee.
  • L loves when Beyond spontaneously tries to fix his hair. Since L never uses conditioner, his hair is very dry and flies away all over the place. Usually B starts muttering to himself in a quiet, honeyed voice to hide his dismay, trying to comb the hair with his fingers. After about five minutes of no success, B leaves and returns with a brush and a spray bottle of conditioner.

[1/2] sorry this is more of a fic find: I don't know if you've read them but if you have I've been looking for these two fics for WEEKS. 1) a fic which was about Viktor's relationship to Yurio, in which he'd actually been funding himself and Yurio all along, and Yurio finds the papers when he's looking for Viktor and Yuuri's marriage certificate for a present. 2) a pretty recent stripper/pole AU in which Ice Castle closed when Yuuri was a child and he took up pole dancing in college and loved it

Babysitting the kids. Again.
  • *at CinderHut*
  • Emerald: Okay, come right this way please and I'll take you to your seats.
  • Qrow: Hey, not to make your job hard, but is it alright if we take those two tables in the corner? We've kinda had a long day and it would make watching over the kids a bit easier.
  • Emerald: Oh, sorry, those seats were already reserved.
  • Qrow: *sighs* Well, it was worth-
  • Winter: Let me tell you about a funny story about a week ago. You see, my husband told me that we were going to go motorboating. And everything was going to be fine and dandy. But our nieces somehow overheard us and asked if they could join.
  • Emerald: Um, ma'am-
  • Winter: And before you know it we suddenly have a bunch of kids that really want to go motorboating so of course one week later we have to go motorboating and take all of them with us to appease everyone. And we all just got back so the both of us are pretty tired.
  • Emerald: Okay, I don't mean to-
  • Winter: And the worst part is that I know exactly what my husband was actually talking about and we were this close to getting naked. So I would really appreciate it if you could provide us with those seats over there this evening.
  • Emerald: Look, just- just take it, okay? I only work here because the entire staff is hot.

anonymous asked:

I just need to point out this: JIB Sat J2 panel, Jen says "I'm glad that he's in my life" I could tell Jar was THIS close to tearing up, so much so it almost made me tear up! (which I hardly ever do) then of course Jen rescues him with a well placed distraction <3 - Italian Anon (on a personal level, I really don't know how to feel knowing all this is going on so close to where I live, then add to that that I spent the day with a Texan friend I hadn't seen in 5 years!)

Hello, dear Italian anon! *coughs wildly*

Oh, you and I have so much in common! I almost never cry, but this same moment brought some actual moisture to my eyes. I was so surprised by my own reaction! I wonder how Jared managed to hold himself together - it didn’t look easy.

Damn it, I got emotional all over again while making these gifs. Someone should’ve distracted me too.

These two, I don’t even know what to say. They’re so in tune with one another, knowing exactly what the other needs and how to deliver it. It’s so amazing to watch!

You didn’t get to go to Jib? Gosh, I can only imagine how I’d feel if these guys came to my country and I couldn’t attend the convention! Perhaps you’ll get to go next year? I’m considering it and my partner is already excited about the idea of spending a week in Italy. Anyway, thank you for the message. I hope your weekend is a joyous one. :)

Happy New Year to all my followers

Carlos spent the whole of New Year’s Day making jokes.

“Babe, I can’t believe I haven’t shaved all year!”

“Cecil, I’m really sorry that this is the only coffee I’ve made you all year.”

“I wonder how Janice is doing… I haven’t seen her since last year!”

Cecil spent the whole day groaning. As the day drew to a close, Carlos suddenly leapt off the couch and ran towards the front door. 

“Where are you going?”, asked Cecil. 

“Ceec!”, said Carlos, looking slightly panicked. “I haven’t done any science since last year! I have to go to the lab right now!”

wholocked1290  asked:

why do people say that felix is the son of gotzeus?

I mean, have you looked at him?? He basically looks like Marco and Mario’s lovechild. He actually looks more like Mario but because we all know Mario and Marco are a couple, the only conclusion is that they are his dads. Look:

I think there’s also a hint of Marco in his face. 

(Also look at how much Marco loves and cares for his son.

So case closed: Felix is Götzeus’s son!

I don't usually do this but I had the occasion to zoom on the snap Phoebe posted of those pics. (they are so beautiful this is so cute) and it only confirm that they only have ONE pic of the whole family, the well known one, The Stunt Pic, and they love it so much and look at it so much that they cropped Dan and GrandPa's foreheads. Organic.

Anonymous said to shadyshit91:Did you see Phoebe’s snap? She posted a pic of picture frames in their holiday France house, a picture of the whole Tomlinson-Deakin family with Freddie (from when they got papped at Malibu Beach last April 2016) i’m just…why do they even have it, i really hope this ends like in JUNE (i know this is still fake and that pic frame doesnt make it real) but it’s still…eh. i really am sure they have one without Freddie where they’re all smiling unlike that picture.

Hm same pic as always, same pic that was made public, same pic literally everyone uses when they need to associate the family and the kid… you want to tell me they took only that one pic that is actually really weird? (I mean Jay’s eyes are closed, Lottie and Fizzy look like they rather be anywhere else, even the twins are like :/) 

Clear up the language barrier

Let’s get something straight. If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc- I will not judge you for the lifestyle you are choosing to live. But I will not respect the lifestyle. I believe that being gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc is a sin and I don’t care if I’m labelled as a “homophobe” or a “bigot” for it. Many guys throw around “homophobe” religiously when people they love don’t support them on that. Well I want to clear something up. Just cause I don’t support you, it doesn’t mean I fear you. It just means I just don’t support you. The whole gay sect wants people to stop judging them, downing them, etc but there is a problem.

The gay sect does it just as well as straight people do. How? That’s easy. By calling straight people “homophobic” and “bigot”. You are just as worse as the people who use the slurs you all hate. If you want treated with respect, stop calling people “homophobic” and “bigot”. You can’t throw that at someone and then take offense when someone calls you the gay slur you hate. “Homophobia” back in it’s early days was correctly used as it was thought to be a spreadable disease. Now the word is used as hate for if your loved ones say “we don’t support you”. Yes your family still actually supports you. But with you being judgmental and calling them those names, you are no better than the people that use the gay slurs. Look in the mirror and realize that. Also, you could be called heterophobes for all the hate you have towards the “homophobes”. So in closing, if someone doesn’t support you and your gay, don’t call them a homophobe if you don’t gain their support. You are just as much as a judger when you call them that.

Heavenly Commentary: Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Lily: You're back. How's Padfoot?
  • James: ...He escaped.
  • Lily: I'm sorry, what?!
  • James: He escaped. Turned and slipped through the bars. Swam right off the island. Watched him do it.
  • Lily: Why?
  • James: Because he's innocent?
  • Lily: He's always been innocent. Why now?
  • James: How am I to know?
  • Lily: I thought you guys knew everything about each other?
  • James: We used to. But these days the conversation is a little one sided.

  • Lily: Ha! Serves you right, you pathetic creature!

  • Lily: He'll be fine. He's survived worse.
  • James: I forgot you get like this.
  • ***
  • James: Was that...Padfoot?
  • Lily: I think it was. Why did he come to Harry?
  • ***
  • James: Three hours on the run and he walks right into the minister. He's not a good criminal is he?
  • Lily: That's a good thing. Why does Fudge seem fidgety? And why not press charges?
  • ***
  • Lily: He fell asleep with his glasses on. So adorable. My baby.
  • James: He'll be ok for a few days. I'm going to see if I can find Sirius. Maybe find out where he's going.
  • Lily: Ok be safe. Don't die.

  • Lily: He looks so happy. Under the sun, surrounded by people.
  • ***
  • Lily: Any luck?
  • James: None. What's he been up to?
  • Lily: Enjoying freedom. Spent the last few days ogling a new broom. Best in the- James come back here!
  • ***
  • James: So they think Sirius wants to kill Harry? Are they stupid?
  • Lily: Given that they don't know a rather key piece of information, it's actually the logical conclusion.
  • James: No, they knew how close we were. They should have known he'd never betray us. And what's with "he's at hogwarts"?
  • Lily: That caught my attention too. It's possible he is actually after Harry. But to tell him the truth.
  • James: But like you said. Why now?
  • ***
  • James: Moony? He's teaching?

  • James: Scream? Who screamed?
  • Lily: No one.

  • Lily: I imagine Sirius is the Grim she is referring to.
  • James: I think so. You know, she looks like a crazy old lady but she's pretty talented.
  • Lily: She saw a big black dog and thought 'death omen'.
  • James: Yes, but she still saw the dog.

  • Lily: How stupid do you have to be to insult a hippogriff?
  • James: About that stupid.

  • James: If Harry is told that Sirius got us killed then he'll go after him.

  • James: Look at that greasy haired bastard. Look at his eyes. He's terrified of what Moony will tell Harry.

  • James: He was always like this Lily. Just never to you. Natural born death eater.

  • James: Strip it down?!? What the fuck?!?

  • ***
  • James: He...he heard me?

  • James: That's a patronus. That's me. That's Harry!

  • James: They gave her a time turner? For classes?
  • Lily: Of course they did. Who wouldn't give a thirteen year old girl the ability to travel through time? Why did we come along for the ride?
  • James: I guess because Harry did.

  • Lily: Dumbledore sent our son back in time to save a hippogriff and a man.

  • James: So they saved one beast. Let's see if they can save the other.

  • James: I do.
  • Lily: He takes too many risks with our boy.

  • Lily: He thinks it was you? Why?

  • Lily: They did it. They actually did it.
  • ***
  • James: Your damn right I would've been disappointed Moony.
  • Lily: Yes yes and unfortunately he's TOO much like you. And now Remus is leaving again. I hope he'll land on his feet.
  • James: Cats land on their feet. He's a dog.
  • Lily: You're awful.
  • James: And he's incorrigible.

“Who’d you get for philosophy?”


“Oh. Rough luck.”

“What, why? My sister loved her.”

“Your sister is gay, buddy, and she actually took notes. You wouldn’t know what a book was if you lived in a library.”

“Oh, fuck you. I’m sure it’ll be fine.”

“She owns a sword.”

“She what.”

“Yeah, Beatrice saw her fighting Professor Hollis with it yesterday. That history teacher is wicked with a poker.”

Also overheard, a few tables over:

“What did you pick for your history elective?”

“Silas History, why?”

“Ooh, you’ve got Hollis.”

“What’s so great about Hollis?”

What’s so great about- okay clearly you don’t have eyes, because if you did you would have noticed the skull on her desk?”

“A skull? You’re messing with me.”

“Nope. George got a close look at it once when he was getting help on his essay and get this — he says it isn’t human.”

“What the fuck.”

“I know, right? And the best part is that there’s all sorts of weird stuff in her class. She talks like she actually knew who managed to save the campus.”

“So does Karnstein. Do you think…”



“They hate each other, morons. Didn’t you hear? Beatrice saw them sword fighting behind the Colosseum.”

I want to incorporate some native spirituality into my practice but I don't want to be disrespectful of the tribes. I might have a connection either to the Choktaw or Chikasaw tribes (dunno which) and it is SO hard to find information with all the Half informed 'shamans' out there. Are there any good sources to look up?

Native religions are part of closed cultures, so unless you grew up in that culture there’s very little likelihood that you’ll be allowed to participate it in. I cannot stress the italicized part enough. There’s a difference between being genetically related to a culture and actually being part of the culture. It doesn’t really matter if you might be part whatever tribe, if you aren’t part of that culture you have no right to participate in it unless you get permission from a figure of authority within that culture.

Furthermore, they’re not like eclectic paganism. You can’t dabble in Native spiritualities, you can’t incorporate a little here and a little there with your existing pagan practices. That’s super disrespectful.

My recommendation would be to just stop where you are. There are tons of open cultures with varying beliefs and probably one you’ll be able to connect to. If you insist on going further with this, however, you’ll need to find a figure of authority within the culture you’d like to learn about and get permission from them. Native religions are very different from one another and have different rules so I can’t, as an outsider to them all, tell you who would be more accepting (if any) of this, it’s something you’ll have to ask them yourself.

If they say no, that’s the end of the line. Our resource page has tons of information on open cultures and I’m sure you’ll find something you connect with.

anonymous asked:

did you actually post that india commercial thinking that was clever? what the fuck is a guy supposed to do when he sees an attractive woman? look away? look down at the ground? close his eyes? what the fuck is wrong with you? what girl doesn't want to hear she's beautiful? that commercial is saying "if you're a guy, just look away don't talk to a girl and tell her she is pretty and you'd like to have sex with her or get to know her, just look away all men are creepy. ignorant. naive.

Oh my god

Okay I’ll explain since I keep rereading this and I feel like you genuinely don’t understand. The point of that commercial is not to not give women positive attention ever, it’s to not be a fucking disgusting douche bag. If you want to tell a woman she looks pretty or that her hair or her outfit or her eyes are nice then by all means, that is something that would make her day but most of the time, it’s not like that. Obviously you don’t have to deal with it, but most places women can’t walk down the street without being harassed. I don’t want to hear or feel like you’re looking at me because you want to fuck me, that’s gross. I wasn’t put on this earth for every man that walks past me and finds me attractive to sit and stare and fantasize about having sex with me. Keep it in your pants for 5 fucking minutes and think about me when I’m nowhere around to feel the wrath of your creepiness. It’s honestly the most uncomfortable thing in the world— when people are whistling at me or saying “hey baby” from across the street or when I can literally see you looking me up and down, it’s devastating. You think I go out in public to get that reaction from horny men? No, I don’t. I have had periods of time where I didn’t want to walk anywhere because I knew what would happen if I did. For example, one time my cousin and I were walking to get food on a really hot day, I was wearing a white t shirt and high waisted shorts, we got a few honks and whatever as we went to go eat but on our way back this guy saw us, turned around, went into the empty parking lot we were passing and stopped us to ask if he could take our pictures and that he was a “photography student”. There was nobody else around and he was the one with the advantage of being in a car, so even though we felt uncomfortable we didn’t want to upset him as we didn’t know what he was capable of. So we said yes and he took a few pictures and then asked for my phone number, I told him I had a boyfriend and his face quickly changed and he was like “oh, no, just to send you the pictures” and I was like okay I guess.. So we said bye and left and then as we were walking away he pulls up on the side of us and stops us again and says to me “can I take a few more pictures, and could you turn around? I didn’t realize how short your shorts were” and I said UM NO and walked off. It was honestly scary, humiliating, upsetting etc. like was he really a photography student? Idk. Did he really have to stop us in his car in an empty parking lot to ask if he could take our photos? Maybe, since he might’ve known we’d say no otherwise. Does he need to ask young girls walking alone if he can take their photos anyway? Absolutely not. Did he need to stop us again after he’d already taken photos (perhaps zoomed in on god knows what?) to ask if he could take pictures of my ass? Absolutely not. There are ways to go about situations where you can make people feel comfortable and happy but most of the time strange men don’t do this for women. You guys work at your own convenience no matter how distressing it may be for us. Even though that video was focused on solely looking at women, you’re a fool if you think it stops there. The harassment is very real and you’re ignorant to think otherwise.

There has probably been a question like this before (it makes me uncomfortable to think about so I hope you don't mind me asking) but in the underground would Isabel have had to be cautious of sexual predators? I remember in ACWNR one of the people chasing her made a comment alluding to that idea. Actually let me rephrase, would all three of them (Isabel, Farlan and Levi) need to have been cautious of that kind of thing? Did they have close calls? You don't have to answer this, if you wish.

Crimes of any sort were always something to look out for, even for the trio. If I remember correctly there even was a scene in acwnr that heavily implied Isabel has been raped or at least harassed.
