anonymous asked:

So recently I've really been considering getting a binder because I'm dealing with some heavy disphoria. I have no means of getting it without relying on my parents. They're supportive of LGBTQ rights and I know that they'd probably accept me if I choose to come out, but I'm not quite ready yet. How would someone go about asking for a binder without outing themself?

Lee says:

You could say it’s for cosplay, or that you’re questioning your gender and want to explore different gender expressions which outs you a bit but not entirely. You could also get a binder without parents knowing- our Binding FAQ has a link that explains how. 

You also might want to consider looking at our Coming out page- if they’d be open to you coming out, then why wait? Sometimes you have to think about why you’re closeted- is it because you’re anxious about it, and if so, do you think that you’ll suddenly feel less anxious in the future? If you don’t want to come out yet, you don’t have to, but sometimes it’s best to just get it over with so you can move on.

Followers, does anyone have suggestions on how to ask for a binder without coming out?

UPDATED: okay, maybe there might be some SPOILERS for anyone that hasn’t read ACOMAF - you’ve been warned.

tips for writing essays in college

i feel like spongebob for making this list about writing essays to avoid writing an essay but Life Imitates Art and all that so anyway

  1. dont u dare spend 20 minutes of Premium Focus Time thinking of the perfect title save that nonsense for last bc most professors just want a title they dont really care how good it is
  2. put the date that the assignment is due in the header (no one has to know when you wrote it so just put the due date)
  3. figure out how to use the blackboard dropbox before 11:58pm the night something is due bc every second counts 
  4. most dropboxes let you name the file when you submit it but save your paper as something Appropriate just in case please my children im begging u
  5. be realistic about how long you can sit there writing an essay (ie dont block out 5 hours to write a paper when you know youll get bored 10 minutes in and sit on tumblr for 4 hours)
  6. dont write an essay while lying down u Fool
  7. if you have a paper due at 9 am and it’s 1am and you feel like death: sleep for 1 ½ hours (1 REM cycle) - 3 hours (2 REM cycles) and then wake up to finish the essay - sleeping 1 - 2 REM sleep cycles should be enough to leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed so take that long nap and then get back to work
  8. be conscientious of your word choice - if you used ‘magnificent’ in the previous sentence then pick a different adjective (but make sure it fits and isnt just a synonym you found on - people can tell when a word is clearly beyond the vocabulary of a paper)
  9. you dont have to start an essay as soon as it’s assigned but at least look at what the assignment entails so ur not emailing your professor at 11pm the night its due bc you dont know how many in-text citations are needed they might be up at that hour but that doesnt mean they want to answer your question
  10. the 5 Paragraph format is crap and i have yet to take a class where the professor wanted me to use it - they care more about pages and word count than paragraphs so write however many paragraphs it takes you to fill x number of pages/words (could be 4 pages could be 6 could be 15 idk bud it’s up to you so get going)

First part of the guide is here!! And this will be all about styles. But first, what exactly are styles? According to the MS Word description.

“A style is a set of formatting characteristics, such as font name, size, colour, paragraph alignment and spacing. Some styles even include borders and shading.”

In plain English, they are a bunch of programmed formats for text. So, instead of going paragraph by paragraph, an setting, font, size, alignment, spacing, and so on; you just click and the text is done.

Besides the convenience of using them, and the benefits of a great look, they give your document consistence and that makes it easier an more pleasant to read. Also, they help you navigate your document, which comes handy when you have a lot of pages.

With that said, the guide is on!! But below the cut, because I am conscious of people’s dashboards and my own.

Note: I’ve just hit my first 100 followers! And I wanted to thank everyone, for helping me reach this first milestone. I hope to be able to keep contributing to this lovely community. Thanks!

Love, Andrea

For Natasha, it’s training in the well-stocked gym and sparring with anyone confident enough to go up against her (there are rarely ever any volunteers).

For Clint, Sam, and Scott when he comes by, it’s competing to see who can pull the most pranks in a day without getting caught.

For Wanda, it’s helping Vision grow more accustomed to the world he was unwittingly brought into.

Companions React #3

I’m off to work. But until my longer “Companions React” is edited and posted later today, I wrote up this real quick for fun. Enjoy! :)

Companions react to Rule 34.

Nick:  Goodness.  Is that me? I don’t even have genitals.

Hancock:  I like it.  Let the ladies fantasize.

Nick:  Or the men, apparently.

Hancock:  Men, women, whichever.

Nick:  Or, uh … apparently us.

Hancock:  Huh?

Cait:  (Laughs hysterically)  Holy shit, I never knew you were so close!

Hancock:  Whaddaya mean?  Let me see!  Let me see! Oh, God.  Is that me, with Nick?

Nick:  I think it’s supposed to be.

Hancock:  Well, damn.  (Smiles proudly)  Gotta give it to ‘em, it’s pretty hot.

Cait:  Speak for yourself.  Look at that one!

Hancock:  Is that you, freckles?  Ha, ha, ha!  What’re ya wearin’?

Cait:  I think it’s me corset.

Deacon: (Snickers)  Or what’s left of it.

Cait:  Oh, you think this is funny, do ya?  Let’s see how funny ya find it when you’re on the receivin’ end.  Move it, trash bin!

Deacon:  Hello!

Cait:  Oh, please.  Your abs are not that big.  (Grins) Nothin’ ya have is that big.

Deacon:  Ouch.  Can’t let a guy enjoy his fame for a bit before knockin’ him down?

Cait:  Not a chance.  What’s that between your legs?

Deacon:  I think it’s a– oh, that’s funny.  It looks like a train.  Heh, heh!  Get it?

Cait:  Yeah, we get it.  We all get it.  (Clicks new page)  Well there’s somethin’ nice.

Hancock:  Ha!  Looks like your gettin’ that threesome you’ve always wanted with Piper.

Piper:  What?  Oh. My.  God.  Get rid of it!

Cait:  Why?  I kinda like it.

Piper:  Of course you do!  And why is– oh, God.  Why are there so many of me?

Deacon: (Shrugs)  'Cause you’re a pretty girl?

Piper:  On a normal day I might find that flattering, but under the circumstances I– uhh, how would I even get into that position?

Hancock:  I’d be glad to show ya.

Piper:  Never gonna happen.

Hancock:  Calm down, I’m just playin’.

Piper:  Charming.

MacCready:  What’s a 'cinnamon roll’?

Piper:  What?

MacCready:  I see it there, by my name.

Piper:  It’s a pastry, isn’t it?

Deacon:  I don’t think that’s what it is in this context.

MacCready: Whatever.  Click my images.  I’m … curious.

Cait:  Bwahahaha!!!!

Deacon:  I didn’t know you could do that with a mutfruit!

MacCready:  One time, I made that joke.  One time!

Nick:  I guess that’s all it took.  These people are dedicated.

MacCready:  I’ll say, look at that.  They even added soldier boy, over here.

Danse:  That is not proper Brotherhood attire.

Nick:  I think they know, Danse.  And I don’t think they care.

Cait:  Look at that!  They even have that prick Maxson!  And mostly coupled with you!

Danse:  Close it!  I will not be privy to this!

Cait:  Oh, yeah, as if you’re hatin’ it.  I’d say they got it bang on.

Danse:  Damn it!  I said get rid of it!

Curie:  What are we all looking at?

(Group goes silent)

Hancock:  Take a look.

Nick:  Hancock, no!

Curie:  Oh, mon Dieu!

Nick:  Get outta here, Hancock!  Sorry, Curie.  You okay? I guess that was kind of a shock, huh?

Curie:  On the contrary, monsieur Nick.  I find it quite fascinating.  Human sexuality has always been an area of interest for me.

Hancock: (Grins)  Good to know.

Piper:  Oh, stop it.

Hancock: (Shrugs)  What?

Strong:  Why humans being so loud?!

(Group flinches and stares at Strong)

MacCready:  Y-you don’t think … that … they’d?  They wouldn’t a-actually–?

Nick: (Searches)  My, God….

Piper:  Okay.  I think that’s enough of that.

Nick:  That’s … definitely more than I expected.

Hancock:  Hey.  To each his own, right?

Curie:  Who wouldn’t be a little curious?

Piper:  Please, Nicky.  I really don’t want to look at it.  I think I’ve been scarred enough tonight.

Cait:  Just look away, then.

Piper:  Where?  There’s nowhere left to look!

Strong:  Stupid humans.  Waste of time.  Strong leaving.

Codsworth:  And I’m coming in.  I must know what all the commotion is about.  Need I remind you that Sole is trying to sleep?

X6-88:  This unit is correct.  You are disturbing the peace.

(Group exchanges looks)

Hancock:  Well, we’ve come this far.

Cait:  Why not?  Give it a try.

Codsworth:  Oh my!  What … what is this?!

Cait:  Can ya actually do that?

Codsworth:  Of course I can’t!

Cait:  …Not even with an upgrade?

Codsworth:  Madam!

Piper:  Knock it off, Cait.

Cait:  I was only curious.

Hancock:  Can’t say I’m not.

X6-88:  You people really are the lowest of the low.

Hancock:  You should join us.  It’s fun down here.

Cait:  Do the courser!  Do the courser!

X6-88:  No.  Refrain from that search.

Cait:  Aw, come on.  I wanna see!  It’d only be fair at this point.

Nick:  All right….

X6-88:  Unacceptable.

Cait:  There’s only one of you.

X6-88:  That’s one too many.

Codsworth:  There are several of me.  Oh, the humility….

Cait:  Don’t act like you’re not flattered.

Codsworth:  Well, it is nice to be included, at least.

MacCready:  I still can’t get over all the Nick x Hancock pics.

Nick:  Me neither.  There’s more of us together than with Sole.

Dogmeat:  (Sniffs the keyboard)  Rruff!!

Nick:  Don’t worry, boy.  (Types in name)  I doubt there’s anything on here with y–  I stand corrected.

Piper:  Are you serious?!

Nick:  (Swiftly clicks backspace)  Never look.

Piper:  I-I won’t.

Deacon: (Squints)  What’s that off to the side?

Nick:  I don’t know.  I can’t quite make out the image.

Hancock:  Click it!  Click it!

(Whole group goes pale and silent)

Codsworth:  My word….

Piper:  Is … is that a–?

Deacon:  Jesus.  I can’t … Jesus!

MacCready:  Maybe we’re not seeing it right.  Maybe it’s a trick.  A-a joke of some kind.  Click another one.

(Whole group cringes and pulls away)

X6-88:  …I think I’m finished here.

Piper:  Yep.  Me too.

Nick:  For once, I agree with the Institute’s lapdog.

Hancock:  Yeah, that’s pretty wild.  Even for me.

Curie:  I do not even think that’s physically possible.

Cait:  Not with that attitude.

Piper:  Need to work on your humour, Cait.

Deacon:  Meh, it’s kinda funny.  But I’m still gonna turn in.

Nick:  Yeah.  It’s time.

MacCready:  Hey, let’s all agree to never let Sole see these.

<The whole group agrees, going their separate ways.  As the room empties, Preston climbs up from under the desk, taking a seat in the computer chair.>

Preston:  Ugh, what’s this?!  Deathclaw porn?!  My goodness.  (Opens new search bar)  Preston. Garvey.

Screen:  Zero results.

Preston:  T_T

Creating Your Character

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that we here at SOC believe there are no rules when creating an original character. Everyone has to follow their own process and their own path to create characters that make sense for themselves and their stories! However, today I’d like to take a moment to talk to you about a couple ways you can get started on that new character you know you’re supposed to be working on. Remember, these aren’t hard-and-fast rules - these are suggestions!

One way to get those creative juices flowing is to brainstorm. What does this character need to do in your story? What’s their purpose for existing? Warning: if you can’t answer these two questions, you might not really need this character, so think carefully! Consider what kinds of personality traits would be beneficial for filling their role, or what traits could cause conflict and complicate the story. Think about where they must have come from to end up where they are today: if you need a character to be the evil CEO of a company trying to steal your protagonist’s designs, you’re going to have to explain how the evil CEO got to be where they are somehow, and why they’re doing what they’re doing. Brainstorming can be kind of a chaotic approach - I like to call it throwing ideas at the wall and seeing what sticks - but if you’ve been stuck for a while it might help! Just make sure to write down everything you come up with without judging it right now. You can always refine your ideas later, but you have to be able to remember what they were!

A more visual approach to character creation is starting with a mental image of the character. Imagine their face, their clothes, how they walk, how they stand…and then dig into the details and try to use those things to figure out who they are. A character who walks aggressively could be confident, or they could be scared. A character who slouches might spend all day in front of a computer or might be trying to disappear. What is the character wearing? Yoga pants could mean an athlete or a couch potato or someone running errands, while a tuxedo has totally different connotations. This is similar to brainstorming, but you’re using the character’s appearance to extrapolate their personality and/or history instead of their role.

If you need a more methodical approach, try making a list of all the things you think you really need to know about your character - this is where a lot of profile worksheets start, so if grabbing a blank profile worksheet works better for you, do that instead. Next, fill in the things you already know about the character, whatever those things may be; you might only have a name, but it’s a start! Once you have the information you already know down, you can start filling in what you don’t know. Some of these things might be hard to figure out until you actually start writing about the character, and that’s okay! Just do what you can for now. The downside to this approach is that sometimes we get so caught up in filling in the blank fields that we forget to make sure that everything connects back to the character to form a cohesive whole, so make sure you read it over a few times and look for places where you can tighten it up!

Finally, for some people, all this planning in advance just doesn’t work. If you’re one of these people, you might feel kind of frustrated when you sit down to make a new character by any of the previous methods. That’s okay! Look, some of us can only figure out what we’re thinking when we start getting it down on the page. If you need to write character sketches or go off-track with your story to figure out who your character is, that’s totally fine, and it’s a completely valid way to create a character! This approach is a little more organic and a lot more hands-on, because the character grows directly from your imagination and your story without any kind of framework to latch on to. You might want to take notes as you figure things out, but don’t be afraid to experiment!

However you choose to create a character, whatever you do, just make sure that it works for you. Don’t forget: you can write as many drafts as you need to, so it’s okay if the character you create now isn’t exactly the character they will be in your final draft! Characters, like stories, can evolve over time. They can be polished up, broken down, put back together, polished some more. You can add things or remove them, or even just alter whole aspects of the character as necessary. Make some mistakes and learn from them, and whatever you choose to do, don’t stop writing! Good luck!


anonymous asked:

IM SO GLAD THAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE REQUESTING BC I DIDNT KNOW IF THEY WERE OPEN BUT THEY ARE SO could you please write a pref where arz (or another girlfriend for lukes) is being really awful to you behind your boyfriend's back and he finds out and defends you?

Thanks for the request, lovely! I hope I did what you were asking for lol. And I just used Calum since you didn’t specify a boy and I’m Cake af.

Also, I just want to put it out there that I don’t really have an opinion on Arzaylea. I don’t hate her, I’m not judging her. Just for the sake of this one shot, she has to seem like a bitch.

“Calum,” you whine. “Do we really have to go?”

He sighs and turns to face you as he finishes putting his shoes on. “I thought you liked the boys?”

You nod. “I do, they’re great. It’s just…” You trail off, not wanting to start any drama between anybody.

You and Calum have been together a little over a year now, and you are extremely supportive of him and the boys. However, lately, you’d been avoiding spending time with them at all costs. Well, not all of them, mostly Luke. It’s not that you don’t like Luke, in fact, you think he’s really sweet and funny. But he’s started dating this girl named Arzaylea who for some reason just hates your guts.

She’s always saying mean things to you behind the boys’ backs, and then acting like an angel to their faces. It’s really annoying because you know that Luke seems to really like her and you don’t want to say anything to him. But she’s getting you to the point where you just don’t want to go to events if she’s going to be there.

Calum notices that you’re lost in thought, so he walks over to you and wraps his arms around your waist, leaning his forehead gently against yours. The physical contact breaks you out of your trance and you glance up at him.

“Why don’t you want to go out with us, (Y/N)? I know there’s a reason. You’ve been skipping out on us a lot lately,” he says, no irritation in his voice at all. He sounds almost worried.

You shrug. “There’s no reason. I just really want to stay home is all.”

He pulls back and opens his big brown eyes as wide as he can, giving you the most adorable puppy dog face you’ve ever seen.

“Please come with me,” he begs. “It’s just one dinner to celebrate the release of the album. It’ll be over before you know it.”

You sigh loudly, diverting your eyes from his before you give into his puppy dog eyes.

“It won’t be the same without you there,” he whines.

You roll your eyes and pat his chest lightly. “You’re lucky you’re cute, Hood,” you say, turning toward the closet to find a dress to wear.

You hear him chuckle from behind you. After a few minutes of debating, you decide to just wear a simple black dress and some black heels. You’re not much of a fashion person, so most of your wardrobe consists of black. It’s the color that goes with everything.

You quickly fix your already-curly hair and touch up the makeup that you’d had on from before and then you and Calum head to the restaurant to meet the others. Calum said that the dinner would be small. It’s just you, the boys, a few crew members that helped out on the album, and Arzaylea.

You two arrive fairly quickly and you’re immediately sat at the table that had been reserved for the event. Michael and Ashton are already here, so you smile and give them each a quick hug and ‘congratulations’ before sitting down next to Calum. Some crew members that you vaguely recognize come in next. Soon every seat at the table is filled except for two: Luke and Arzaylea.

Michael checks his watch for the tenth time. The two of them are always late for everything so this shouldn’t really surprise him anymore. 

“Fucking hell, Luke,” he mumbles. “I’m hungry.”

Ashton laughs at his annoyance. “Drama queen is probably still picking out the right shade of fake tan,” Ashton says quietly, but not so quietly that you don’t hear him.

“You guys don’t like Arzaylea?” You ask, surprised.

They both begin to answer when Luke appears, his hand connected to the ‘drama queen’ as Ashton’d called her. They sit and Luke apologizes for being late. Michael mutters something else under his breath, but even you can’t hear it this time.

The dinner finally gets under way, and it goes fine for the most part. You weren’t left alone with Arzaylea, so she couldn’t be mean to you.

Once everyone had finished their meals, you excuse yourself to go to the restroom and touch up your makeup. You make your way to the back of the restaurant and walk into the deserted bathroom. You glance at yourself in the mirror before pulling some powder out of your purse and opening it up to fix some areas where you’ve gone shiny.

You take no notice of the sound of the door opening and closing behind you, but suddenly you hear a familiar voice and you stop what you’re doing.

“Hey (Y/N),” Arzaylea says, coming to stand in front of the mirror beside you. Her voice is smug.

You just smile and then continue patting your face with the powder.

“Oh honey,” she says, “That dress does nothing for your body. It flattens your boobs and makes your legs look stumpy.”

She looks you up and down, her eyes roaming over every inch of your body. Even though you know that you look good in this dress, you can’t help but let her words get to you a little. You shake it off and try to ignore her, but she keeps talking.

“And don’t even get me started on that powder. It’s like three shades too dark for your skin. You’re starting to look like an Oompa Loompa,” she says, giggling.

You roll your eyes and stuff your powder back into your purse. You turn to look at her and see that she’s just smiling sadistically at you.

“Why can’t you just be nice for once? I’m always so nice to you and all you do is criticize me,” you say.

She just laughs and exits the bathroom without offering any response. You groan and follow behind her. You feel like crying at this point, and you know that you won’t last much longer before the waterworks begin.

You walk over to the table where Calum is sitting but instead of taking your seat, you lean down and whisper in his ear.

“Babe, I’m not feeling well. I think I’m going to call a cab and head home,” you tell him quietly.

He immediately turns to look at you, his worried eyes scanning over your face. “No, babe, let me drive you. We were just about done anyways.”

You shake your head. “No, stay and have some drinks with the boys. I’m fine, really.”

You don’t give him a chance to respond before you lean up and say a quick goodbye to everyone at the table and walk out of the restaurant.

Once you get outside, you start to call a cab, but tears soon begin to blur your vision. You hate this girl for making you feel like this. You don’t even know what you did to make her hate you so much.

You hear the door to the restaurant open and you spin around to see Calum walking toward you. He quickens his pace when he sees the tears in your eyes and immediately pulls you into his arms.

“Babe, what’s going on? What’s wrong?” He asks.

You sniffle, your face pressed against his shirt. You know you’re probably smearing makeup all over him, but you don’t care right now.

“I can’t stand Arzaylea,” you admit quietly.

He laughs slightly, “None of us can, baby. Is that why you’re so upset?”

You shake your head. “She’s just always so mean to me when you guys aren’t around. She insults me and puts me down and I’m so sick of it. That’s why I’ve been skipping events and stuff because I just can’t stand being around her.”

Calum is quiet for a few seconds. “She’s actually mean to you? Like to your face?”

You nod against his chest. He suddenly grabs your hand and starts pulling you back into the restaurant. You struggle weakly against his grasp, but he’s much stronger than you.

“Calum, wait, what are we doing?” You ask.

He’s silent as the two of you walk back toward the table where the rest of them are still sitting. You two stop once you’ve reached it and everyone goes silent when they see the enraged expression on Calum’s face.

Calum looks directly at Arzaylea and she smiles sweetly at him. He rolls his eyes and pulls you against him, wrapping his arm around your shoulder.

“I’m going to need you to stop being such a bitch to (Y/N),” he says, his voice low and angry. “She’s never done anything to you and you have no right to insult her and make her feel like shit.”

Everybody is silent for a few seconds after Calum says this, a look of shock on everyone’s faces. Finally, Luke speaks up.

“What is he talking about?” He asks, looking at Arzaylea.

Her face has gone completely red and she refuses to look back at him.
Calum leads you back out of the restaurant and to you guys’ car. Part of you was wanting to know what Arzaylea was going to say to try and defend herself, but the way that Luke was looking at her makes you think that she might not have much of a chance. 

The ride home is silent, but Calum’s hand never leaves yours. When you get home, the two of you change out of your fancy clothes before settling on the couch. You’re reading a book and he’s on his phone, the two of you still sitting in a comfortable silence.

“Promise you’ll tell me if someone’s ever treating you like that again,” Calum suddenly says, making you lose your place on the page you were reading.

You nod. “I promise. Thank you for sticking up for me.”

“Any time, baby girl. Any time.”

39. "I'm not gonna keep having this conversation" with Wolfstar please 😂🙋

“Remus,” Sirius said. He was lounging in the common room with his feet on the table while Remus sat quietly studying. Sirius, of course, couldn’t let that go unnoticed, as it was very late at night and every other sane person in Gryffindor had already gone to bed. “You’re a man of wisdom.”

“Don’t flatter me,” Remus muttered, turning a page in his book. “What do you want?”

“Scientifically speaking,” Sirius spoke slowly, purposefully trying to annoy the boy, “Why is it that I’m so good looking and yet so single?”

Remus shot his friend a look that clearly said, “Really?”

Sirius grinned. “I asked you a question. Maybe you’re not as smart as you seem.”

“Your personality might have something to do with it,” Remus quipped.

“Are you saying my personality is offensive to women?”

“And men,” he muttered.

Sirius considered this, then nodded. “Yes, I suppose you’re right.”

Remus glanced up from his reading. “Pardon me?”

“It’s bound to happen every now and then,” Sirius teased. “Actually, for you, it happens more often than naught.”

Remus rolled his eyes. “Are you done?”

“No, now that you mention. How would you suggest I improve upon my personality? Since your assessment implies that my looks are already on point. What would a young man like yourself like to see in an eligible bachelor?”

His friend exhaled loudly and pointedly ignored Sirius’s question.

“Come on,” he egged Remus. “You’re not unattractive as well. Why are you having problems finding a lady… or boy… friend.”

Remus slammed his book shut, his face red with frustration and embarrassment. “I’m not going to keep having this conversation with you.”


“Well, why not?” Sirius probed. “There is a simple solution after all.”

“And what’s that?”

Sirius grinned devilishly, lavishing the annoyed scowl on Remus’s face. He knew just how to push his friend’s buttons. Just as Remus was opening his mouth to undoubtedly tell Sirius off, the dark-haired boy kissed his werewolf friend.

At first, Remus involuntarily jumped with shock. But as his anger boiled away, he noticed how soft and warm his friends lips were. Remus kissed back gently, and Sirius reciprocated.

When they parted, Remus said softly, “I suppose you’re right.”

“Hmm?” Sirius said, his ears still ringing with thoughts of the kiss.

“That is one solution to our problem,” he clarified. When Sirius smiled coyly at him, Remus cleared his throat, his face burning. “Perhaps we should collect more data to see if it’s the best solution.”

“Ah, good thinking,” Sirius said. “We can’t be too careful in these crazy times.”

And with those words, Remus kissed Sirius again—this time with a smile.

Client Etiquette: First Contact

If you’re planning on seeing a provider, you’ll have to contact them first. Many providers, including myself, have multiple acceptable forms of communication (email, text, as site inbox, etc) listed prominently in multiple places. This means they can get a lot of contacts in a very short period of time. Here’s a few tips for how to make sure you get a response.

1. Tell me who you are. Whether you text, email, call or whatever, tell me who you are. A nick name or user handle is great; it doesn’t have to be a legal name. For instance: “Hi, this is PapaBear from ECCIE…” maybe you’re not ready for a name exchange or you don’t have a user name. That’s also cool. For instance: “Hi, I saw your ad on BoyToy…” IF YOU CALL
MY PHONE and I don’t answer, it’s probably because I can’t at that moment. Maybe I’m actually busy, or driving, or in public, or around my parents. If I don’t know who you are already, I don’t know what you’re going to say when I answer. Not picking up doesn’t mean I’m ignoring you; it means I can’t answer the phone. Leave me a message and I can get back to you. Being angry that I didn’t answer or call you back if you didn’t leave me any information about who you are makes you look like an assbutt. Here’s a thought: use text. If you text, I can respond fairly quickly unless I’m driving. It doesn’t matter if I’m in public or having brunch with Aunt Eunice. I can also text you back at my convenience without having to play phone tag. I have better things to do with my day.

2. Tell me what you want. The single most irritating thing to see in my inbox is “Hi :)” with literally nothing else. For all I know you’re a three year old who managed to punch enough buttons to send a text. Tell me what you want. For instance “Hi, this is Derrick. I saw your ad on Back Page and was hoping I could see you.” This gives me somewhere to take a conversation. I can move on to important leading questions like “are you interested in an incall or an outcall” or “are you looking for a half hour or full hour session”. An even better contact might be “Hi, my name’s Jacob. I saw your ad on Slixa and I’d love to have you come visit me for an hour or so.” See, now I don’t have to do the leading questions thing because I already know you’re interested in a one hour outcalls. Sending me vague messages with no context is wasting my time. Even if I don’t respond to your smiley, it’s still taken me the 3 seconds to open the message and process that you’re an idiot.

3. Don’t mention money. Unless you are seeking a provider in Vegas, you should probably know that soliciting sex for money is illegal. That’s why ads have suggested “donation rates” or “contributions”. If you do want to ask about rates for something that isn’t listed, ask how many roses would be requested, or state what you’re looking for and follow it with an innocuous question like “what’s your student loan payment”. It doesn’t really matter how you say it as long as it doesn’t sound like “how much money am I giving you to blow me”…because you’re not paying a provider for a sex act. You’re either paying for their company or giving them a gift. In fact many hobbyists leave their donations in something like a birthday or thank you card. I have one client who makes a point to say “I hope this helps with your student loans”, in part because that’s a verbal acknowledgment that he’s not paying me and because he knows I have a shit ton of student loans.

4. If you want a provider to take you seriously as a client, act like a serious client. Your first contact should not devolve into phone sex. Again, you’re not trading money for a sex act, so don’t talk to or about your provider like you are. It’s why providers say things like “I’d love to play” or “I can’t wait to see you” instead of “when can we fuck”. If you want a cheap thrill, have a one night stand. While many escorts do have wild and crazy fun with their clients, they are still classy and professional in their demeanour and presentation. You probably should be too.


Sorry I took forever to upload these, and also sorry about the weird cropping…?  I think the scanner kinda gobbled these up in the process, but here are a bundle of assorted requests/suggestions from earlier, when I was passing the time at the candy shop.  I don’t rightly recall who suggested what, so if you see your request, just say so in a reblog or something!

Might be best to fullview these.

If there’s any Olicity fan out there that still have doubts about them being ENDGAME, I have the proof for you...

Watching the entire crossover again for umpteenth time last night, I noticed something. You know that when Barry shows Oliver the front page of the future newspaper, he said he had changed things so much that the article is not longer written by Iris, right? Well, that might have changed but there’s something it hasn’t. 

The smaller article on the bottom left of the page hasn’t changed. Look!

There’s still a Queen, Inc in the future. Neither Oliver, nor Thea are going to run the company. When, not if, WHEN Felicity marries Oliver, she’ll take the Queen name (or at least put the name on the company, she always have wanted to get it back to him). The only other Queen out there is William, who’ll be barely 18 years old by 2024 so I really doubt he’s the one behind the company

So, there you go. There’s your proof that no matter how gloom things are for Olicity right now, the future is so much brigther

How I make my quotes:

I’ve gotten several requests asking me to do a tutorial of how I make the quotes in my bullet journal [x]. This is just a quick example I made for this tutorial.

1. Mark out the center
the first thing I do is that I mark out the middle of the page just to ba able to center everything correctly. I also mark out a box of where I want my text to go and how big I want it to be. The actual size might change in the end but I just like to do this to have a slight idea about how it’s gonna look in the end.

2. Time to start sketching 
Now it’s time to start thinking about what type of layout you want your quote to have. Start sketching, make several different designs and play around with different fonts and styles until you find one you like. If you feel like you really can’t come up with an original design, google “quote lettering” or something like that and you should be able to get some inspo from there :)

3. Add it to your page
When you come up with a design you want it’s time to add it to your page. Make sure you get it properly centered and measure your letters/count them and the spaces. Don’t worry about it being too neat, you’ll be able to fix that later. And when it comes to styles and fonts, it’s all about practice. Look at other lettering and try to mimic them if you’re struggling. 

4. Outline! :)
Next is outlining. I like to use these black liners (don’t know the brand, sorry) and any black liner will do :) Be careful about edges and try not to smudge anything (like I did on the “deserve” :( ).

5. Fill it in
Time to fill in any letters you want to fill in. Cursive writing and Times New Roman kind of fonts have the downstrokes bolder than the upstrokes, so try to think about that when writing if you want to fake calligraphy ;)

6. Details
When you feel like you’re done with your letters you can go ahead and add details, shadows, colours, banners, little drawings, flowers or whatever you feel like adding. It’s up to you how you want your quote to look like :) 

And then you’re done! :) If there are any further questions feel free to ask me!

I thought my life was going in a certain direction where we would never meet again after the night we turned our backs to each other. I thought that was the end of our journey because we decided to part ways and prioritize the things around us. Without us. Since then, I have focused all of my life on making myself better and ready for the one who’s fated for me. Sometimes, I think of you, but it’s not a part of my daily habit. I avoid looking back because I don’t want to remember our past. And I’m afraid to stop and find you. When I miss you, I just turn around my book and re-read our chapters, but I don’t stay for long because I might be familiar with your words again. But as I walk and continue my life, I never thought, in this world full of 7 billion people, I would have the chance to meet you again as if it’s the first time. I never thought the person that I’m investing my future with, would still be you. I never thought the next pages of my book would continue what we have started. And I am so glad we bumped into one another again.
—  E.J. Cenita, who would have thought we’d end up together?

Sam watched as you tore your shirt open, not caring that the buttons popped off in the process. Slamming the door behind you as you discarded the cloth in record time. Your shorts were kicked off before you ever reached the bed he was sitting on. The dark green lingerie barely covered you as you moved to straddle him, pushing his book away without a second glance. He didn’t get a chance to admire the view before you bent down to press your lips greedily into his.
