Hello, I am a sad child who has never delved into the "podcast world" and has no idea how to access information via podcasts...but I do NOT want to miss this awesome SJM podcast book-talk thing! How do I get in on this?? Can I do it online? On mobile? Do I need an app? I'm so sorry if this is common knowledge and/or a stupid question, I'm just clueless but want to participate :)

Hi dear sad child,

The podcasts will be uploaded to Soundcloud, and eventually to iTunes so you can download them from there. @squaddreamcourt is the technical person with all of this so she might have something to add - you are just getting my sparkling personality and wit and amazing organizational skills, so honestly I’m not like… the best person to explain the tech side.

We have made a separate account @sjmpodcast if you want to follow that, but we will reblog links and such from our own blogs. We are thinking we will have one a week posted. But this is all new and… a lot of trial and error going on right now.

Thanks for asking! That was a good question.

(Also I am steadily getting ideas in my inbox… there are no dumb questions/suggestions, send them all in! It might also be a good idea if you let us know what fanfic authors you’d like us to talk to? I’m not sure if we’ve mentioned that.)

GIVEAWAY!

So I just hit 500 followers, and that’s super cool, so I wanna do a giveaway! Just like this post, and be following me. You don’t have to reblog it because I know that might mess up your aesthetics. You can reblog it though, that would be pretty cool to help spread the word. I’ll randomly pick 5 people on April 20th. If you do get picked, you will get a cute lil bee painting thingy! Make sure your ask box is open and stuff so I can contact you!

Hi i need new blogs to follow that are cherik/xmen based and people who are nice to talk to, could you recommend me some please? tthank

Hi! :)

I’m not really comfortable with listing blogs to follow because I’m a bit shy and I don’t wish to inadvertently create any awkward situations. However, I strongly suggest you go visit  http://erikandcharles.tumblr.com/. They only reblog Cherik posts from different blogs, which you might like! :)

Writing Commissions

Writing is one of the things I am actually good so I decided that considering I cannot have a “regular” job at the moment, I might as well try to make some money this way.

The price is $1 CAD per 100 words ($0.01 per word). Payment will be through PayPal.

Now, I am willing to ghost write for you. No I am not kidding. I really need some money. I am willing to write fanfictions and even any work that may be for homework in your English classes. Once again, not kidding.

I will not write any smut. This is not negotiable. I have the right to decline to write anything I do not want to write.

Some of the fandoms I am in are mentioned in my about, but not everything is in there so you can ask me about which fandoms/pairings are okay. I am willing to write about fandoms/pairings I do not know about, but I will need to research them and be provided some information about it by the person requesting.

You can request right here in my messages or if you want to get a hold of me right away, I am much more active on instagram (kirbyawesome) and will respond faster there. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. Thank you :)

apostrophias replied to your post: it’s kind of gross how people have started…

Can you give an example? I have experienced derealization, depersonalization, and just not feeling a general disconnection to my body that I would categorize as disassociation. I have PTSD and my understanding is that it is an umbrella term for a number of more specific symptoms. I don’t know how rare it is, but you might want to consider that the OPs of those posts may actually experience dissociation and the context of their experience is being removed with reblogs.

I don’t experience disassociation anymore, but I did at one time when I was dealing with PTSD. 

I see a lot of memes with captions like “when you disassociate in the middle of a conversation and have to act like you know what people are talking about” and then the picture is kermit the frog or something. I feel like a lot of people are seeing those memes/posts and thinking, “Oh! disassociation! I totally get that!” when really that could be applied to more general stuff like spacing out.

Maybe the person who originally posted it experiences disassociation, but I doubt that everyone who reblogged/retweeted it does. 

kpop stans on tumblr.com

1. aesthetic stan: probably got a cute url or smth like … 1melon or whatever lmao …… they either reblog aesthetic posts on their main or have a special side blog for it where they post random pictures from instagram…. pretty mobile themes… usually quiet and nice. probably like using heart emojis. have a nice tagging system!

2. loud, extra stan: TAGS TAGS TAGS oh god the tags, they cant live without TAGS, you either Go Full On Caps Lock When You See A Picture Of Ur Ultimate Bias Or You Go Home, enthusiastic, lovely, and humorous! might not have many friends but many people love them and are too shy to tell them usually, they Scream and They Make Memes Probably, “INVENTOR OF THIS COLOR INVENTOR OF MUSIC INVENTOR OF JEANS INVENTOR INVENTOR INVENTOR”, feel lots of things At Once, “OJYMNDNSNDNSKDJNDND”, usually pretty popular stans, have urls that are not forgettable and funny

3. soft stan: theyll never shut up about their bias trust me, will see a picture of two trees probably and go “me and (bias)💘”, actually write love letters to their biases sometimes, really just want the best for their bias, “my baby…. my cinnamon apple😢💕💞💘💗💝💞💕”, uses heart emojis alot whew!, or just emojis in general… they love them, they seem polite, sweet and their presence is usually calming!, probably likes reblogging aesthetic stuff as well!, probably has some url like “(bias)sgf/bf/girl/girlfriend/baby/etc”, usually pretty protective over their bias, probably well liked

4. the ‘i never talk’ stan: never uses tags, never posts, all just reblogs…., they probably like ur posts ALOT, and you kinda wanna follow back, but who… are they even, mobile theme is.. questionable sometimes, i think all they care about is just reblogging the stuff they like lmfao theyre not about that tumblr life probably

5. drama stan: have beef with everyone, probably have a mile long byf page, and a block list lmfao, they usually post aesthetic stuff and maybe have nice urls too, seem intimidating and ‘mean’ usually, “callout post for (insert url)”, petty and nosy as hell, cant mind their own business!

6. the normal stan: a pretty cool person actually, you just think…. Wow i wanna be friends w them bc they seem so tolerant and nice?, uses tags but in a normal way, like “#oh my god #hes the cutest #my heart”, you just wonder how someone can be this chill…, they probably rarely come online too!

7. the multifandom stan: their blog is….. Everything, a pretty MESS, how can they even keep up like dang…, have so much love for so many people… its great!, might occasionally post personal stuff, probably a gif maker, generally liked, friends with the normal stans probably!, a great tagging system usually

8. the NASTY stan: “DADDY😫😫😫”, probably use twitter, thirsty as hell Give Them Water, theyre similar to the extra stans usually, kinky as hell, probably under 18 LMFAO, “i want them to **** ** ** *** ***”, people probably told them to chill before, they usually dont really care, NOOOOO CHILL, loves reading smut probably🙃

9. the gfx stan: SO GREAT, MAKE AMAZING EDITS, come up with great things you just wonder yoooo how they Do That, probably too cool for you, might not talk often! but they get lots of messages probably saying how nice their work is, are just great people like… thanks Gfx Stans For Existing

There’s this discussion right now about getting your lore/art seen and I just want to throw in some advice of my own: Tag the shit out of your work.

If anyone looks at my tags you might notice I add, like, a billion. If it’s somehow relevant to the drawing, I’ll tag it, even if it’s a very small detail. Now, I think tumblr only counts the first 5 tags you use, so make sure you use up those tags wisely. Monster folks get lots of traffic on here, so I tag monster boys/girls/enbies first [and, well, most of my characters are dragon people, so they fit], then flight rising, then humanoid/gijinka, etc. until I use up the five. Then I tag whatever else just in case.

It might feel silly, but trust me, it works. Even if it nets you just one more extra like/reblog, that’s one more person who’s seen and likes your art or writing, and might’ve missed it if you hadn’t tagged. 

Also, double reblog your stuff. It helps get your work seen by people who might’ve missed it due to timezone shenanigans, it’s your blog, and anyone who doesn’t like it can stuff it.

Mission Complete!!

Thank you for all your wonderful gifts!  Yoosung felt like a celebrity and hasn’t stopped beaming since! You all are amazing! If we didnt reblog your gift, please accept our apologies! We might have missed it! >< We hope we got everyone! With this we’ll close our birthday operation! 

On a side note, we’ve gotten a new part time admin! She’s helping us out when Sloth- I mean Devlyn and I are busy! She doesn’t talk much, and when she does she makes fish sounds. So…we’ve dubbed her Admin Phish. 

She sent a message with the above: Blurp blurp blurp! Bruu-lurp bruu-bruu-lurp! Blurp bruu bruu~~ <3

Translation:   Yoosung is so happy, his happiness can last him a lifetime now

There is a lot of fear and uncertainty in the world tonight. When I feel scared, I try to take a step back, close my eyes, and feel my place in the universe instead.

The problems and challenges we face are indeed intimidating and significant, especially when some people fear for their very lives. But there is a future worth heading toward. The universe is so immensely vast. It will endure. And so will we.

some fae facts from lore

  • ‘fae’ range from anything like goblins and imps to the little pixies with the wings that everyone associated with fairies to the seven-foot tall members of the royal courts. some even consider the banshee to be fae. (also trolls, gnomes, elves, djinn, dwarves, leprechauns, will-o-wisps, etc.)
  • some think the fae are evil, some think they are fallen angels, but most are considered to be a chaotic neutral force. some might call this ‘whimsically evil.’
  • honey makes them drunk.
  • iron poisons them, as it does many magical beings.
  • some were-creatures were probably just fae in disguise, since fae can assume any form.
  • they sometimes lure humans with music that makes them want to follow and dance. they have to dance for what feels like a year and a day but it actually only seconds.
  • true names of the fae have power over them. they often use aliases when dealing with non-fae.
  • some people are gifted with fae sight, which allows them to see the fae and also sometimes peeks into the future through their dreams.
  • cats hate the fae, and the fae hate them back. 
  • iron horseshoes over the door can act as a fae deterrent.
  • they sometimes kidnap human children and leave their own children or elderly behind. these are called changelings.
  • fae are generous with gifts, especially for polite people, but prefer gifts in return.
  • that being said, better to avoid accepting gifts. you probably don’t have enough to pay them back. by saying ‘thank you,’ you acknowledge that a gift was given and that you now owe something in return. being indebted to the fae = bad time
  • fae can’t lie, but truth and honesty aren’t always the same.
  • asking for a favor will cause offense. make it seem like it’s their idea to help you.
  • most things offend them, actually.
  • some fae can smell a lie. there’s no way of knowing which ones unless they tell you.
  • fae use ‘glamour’ to hide their appearance or habitations around humans. ‘glamour’ can be gifted for use by humans.
  • it’s better for fae to have half-breed children than no children at all, so relationshops with humans are fine. it just rarely works out fine for the human.
How we’re gonna revive book tumblr

referencing this

  • make posts that ask questions so other people get encouraged to interact
  • if you find a post that you wanna add something to: REBLOG so many other people will see and are inclined to join the convo. dont put your comment in the tags.
  • really like a specific tumblr user? talk to them. send them asks. not only about books, but about other things. ask them questions you’re curious about. ask them about their day. tell them stories. share things with them
  • asks + reblogs > replies. While at the end of the day it’s a personal preference whether you like them, replies aren’t seen by that many people. the more people SEE you’re talking, the more might consider to join
  • keep the conversation going. keep reblogging and answering. 
  • dont wait for people to talk to you. start the conversation yourself
  • be nice be good be kind.

should there be anything you need help with: come to me. im not here for repeating the mistakes of the past. if there are any drama/bullying problems, come to me. ill help.

re: bubble carrier. I have the messenger bag version for Rex and she loves it, she goes in it on her own and it’s her favorite nest spot. It has good ventilation but does seem like a small fit for a cat, however the large version of the backpacks in the post you reblogged to get positive reviews by cat owners. It’s by a company called U-Pet.

This is super cute! I fully support this use. 

I’m glad it gets reviews from cat owners, but I’m not sure I trust the general public to be able to actually tell if the cat enjoys being in this - I would assume they’d know if the cat was desperate to get out, but might not notice the cat shutting down or just being generally stressed.

a note to trans guys traveling on airplanes

please be aware that if you’re binding, it’s likely you’re going to get a pat down. the binder sets off the body scanner, and if you pass, your chest is going to patted down by a male tsa agent. in my experience it’s brief and it’s never given me an issue with the tsa beyond the pat down, but if you’re very uncomfortable about people touching your chest you might want to consider not binding when you go through security

In layman’s terms, OCD is the chain-letter-posts of the mind. It’s like having one of those “if you do not reblog this, you’re family will die” posts pop up in your mind, but instead of reblogging or reposting, you have to flick a light switch or pick something up that you just put down.

But with much higher stakes than ‘just in case’. Because your disorder makes you terrified that it might be true, no matter how unlikely it is.
Just in case.
