you should all come see it!!!

**1/2 Hello Steph! There is a thing that I haven't seen anyone mentionig, but it still hunts me. In TST, where john and mary get simultaneusly two messages from Sherlock, three bizzare things happen. One, they seem to convey different meaning, Mary's looking somewhat like a challenge, or a threat. Two, the "you go, no you go" is way to extended, and John is acting strangely, considering he is the one who should "come immediatelly" and Mary the one who should be protected? But that is not all.

**2/2 The third, and weirdest thing is that after that oh-so-dragged scene, we see Mary leaving without being told THE ADDRESS. I have watched the couch scene a lot of times and while John may have seen Mary’s message, Mary hasn’t seen John’s. SO, HOW DOES SHE KNOW WHERE TO GO? And why John does inform (Lestrade?) after his -belated- departure? Isn’t there an emergency? Why is that scene even shown, but for us to wonder the previous scene’s fuckiness? Am I wrong? Have i neglected something?

all that seems like an elaborate trap for mary to me, but i can be wrong


Hey Nonny!

I’m assuming you wanted anonymous since you turned it on for two of the three parts, LOL, and assuming that last bit is part of this ask, since it was immediately above these two parts. 

Okay, so yeah, I’ve seen discussion about this scene in the past and at how weird it is because Sherlock is cryptic with Mary, and not John. GIVEN that I believe in a John’s Alibi Theory, I think that this is a detail that they had to fit their story around – text messages ARE admissible evidence, and in an episode so heavily focusing on the texting aspect, I think that is a clue that all of the texts actually ARE real. No matter how “nice” they make Mary in their “story”, John and Mary’s texts still remain, so they have to somehow work that cryptic text into their narrative. I think it’s deliberately cryptic because the real text IS cryptic, and YES, I think it was a trap for Mary. That WHOLE aquarium scene seems – pardon the pun – FISHY to me: Lestrade, Mycroft and John just pop out of no where, Mary’s miraculous change in he physics, the peekaboo cops… nothing seems right. I do believe it’s an altered narrative, being told and possibly retold (with the repeating-but-slightly-different scenes) as an explanation to take the blame away from John for killing Mary. 

Do I think she’s dead? Maybe yes, maybe no? I don’t know right now. I’m leaning mostly to YES, but the posthumous DVD’s and the phoney-as-fuck shooting are what’s throwing me off. I’m starting to wonder if John and Sherlock somehow / some reason took the TD-12 drugs which caused John to hallucinate and Sherlock to start overdosing again. I don’t know. Regardless, YES, I do think that the aquarium is a staged and doctored event, and that the ambiguous text from Sherlock to Mary is a clue that she is still the villain that we knew her to be.

Could you do a Villain!Katsuki x Shy Reader?? Where the reader accidentally runs into him while he's committing a crime and he takes a liking to them because of their shyness?

Sure thing! I hope I could write it well enough and that you like it =)


- He pops up at all sort of times and places. If they’re out shopping, he’s suddenly coming around the corner to buy some milk or if they take a walk, they unexpectedly run into him. Every time Bakugou sees them, he grins and drops a few comments or sentences.

- Most of the time, he doesn’t really care if they have enough courage to talk back or start a conversation. Sometimes he just rants and blows some steam off by complaining about meddling heroes, clumsy friends and fucking idiots.

- Though should his comments or grumbling make them smile or chuckle, he secretly puffs up with a bit of pride. He knows how closed off shy people can be and getting a reaction out of them, a positive one to boot, is a success.

- The more he gets to know them and the closer they become, the more Bakugou starts to care. He starts to care if they participate in a conversation compared to when he just grumbled around or teased them. He starts to care when they look like they’re unhappy and he grits his teeth because he knows he sucks at being comforting and yet he wants to make shit better somehow.

- Bakugou doesn’t involve them in his villain business, ever. He’s also very careful about how much he tells them or where they meet, especially in the beginning and a while into their relationship as well. He doesn’t want them to turn on him or to get the police on his case. It takes a while until he trusts them enough to stop worrying if they might become the proverbial knife in his back.

- He only introduces them to his friends if he trusts is friends as well and he tells his companions in no uncertain terms, that they better don’t talk shit to his partner or mention any villain business.

- Bakugou doesn’t really take them out for dates, though if they want to go somewhere to eat, he doesn’t mind eating out occasionally. He also rather takes them to his favorite places, up on rooftops and off-limit locations. It’s his way of letting them into his life and bringing them to where he feels comfortable and at ease.

PSA: Semi-Hiatus until Sunday

Er, hey guys, listen, I’m going with relatives tomorrow out to my Grandparents’ home. I’m gonna be there with my Aunt, Uncle, two cousins, and obviously my grandparents. I will be taking my computer with me, but I don’t know how active I’ll be. I can tell you I’m coming back Sunday afternoon, probably after lunch time in my time zone (CST). Just giving you all fair warning that you may not see much out of me till Sunday.

(…also, this should go without saying, but with my relatives around I will NOT be on my sideblog @valorandheat until I get home and have privacy again on Sunday)

IMO Caroline actually has very salient, consistent strengths and flaws, unlike Elena or Bonnie or most of the male characters. But you're one of those people who arrogantly states all of your opinions as fact, so there's no point on debating with you.

If there’s no point then why did you even bother coming into my inbox? I’m legitimately sick of anons who feel the need to come into my inbox and get mad at me because I’m confident about my opinions on my own blog, like should I not be confident in what I say? Should I have to state, In my opinion Caroline is a weak character because in my opinion I don’t see her grow past season 2 because in my opinion she’s a weak character because in my opinion?

Kiki’s Delivery Service is one of those movies that I feel any aspiring artist should see. The struggle of Kiki in this movie is one that ANYONE who wants to further themselves goes through, that transition from taking what you love to do to something that you make a living off of.

As artists we have all been in the place where Kiki is. That place where we can’t draw anything right, can’t paint anything right, can’t sculpt anything right, that place where everything comes out wrong over and over and we begin to question if we’re actually good enough for the talents and skills that used to come to us like second nature when we were just using them for fun. That place where we want to give up because we suddenly can’t ‘fly’ like we want to, because everything seems too difficult to do that. 

But that doesn’t mean it isn’t there, just because it isn’t working right then and there when you want it to be. If you can always fly, then it wouldn’t make those times when you did as special. It isn’t necessarily easy to grow up, nor is it necessarily easy to live with the artistic struggle of losing inspiration. But you can’t just throw up your hands and say ‘No, I can’t do it anymore’ because you’ll NEVER fly if you do that. 

You gotta wobble before you stand. 

too many white ppl not wanting to speak up bc they’re scared of bein ostracized by their white friends…and u know what i’m really sick of? white ppl who never bring up issues on their own. they wait till all the people of color on their twitter feed, on tumblr are discussing something and post a shitty rephrasing of a post a person of color already made and better to seem involved. they try to rehash a point that has been made millions of times to the point where it’s common knowledge and play this off like they’re accomplishing something. you don’t have to teach poc about racism. we fucking know all about it.

y’all are silent 364 days of the year but then when poc are upset about something you decide to chime in with your obligatory white two cents that accomplishes nothing. and you won’t bring this stuff up in front of other white people either. not ever. you’ll listen to the white people around you being openly hateful and you’ll keep your mouth shut. all this talking like you care and then you refuse to confront your racist and hateful white friends because you don’t want them to exclude you or get mad at you. if you care about us why the fuck you want friends like that in the first place? 

we can tell when you’re posting shit just to seem like “one of the good ones” and we can tell when you post stuff bc you’re scared the big bad people of color will come for you if you don’t and you’re just trying to cover your ass

This right here.

This is SO important.

When Yurio showed his ‘true agape’, Yuuri and Victor weren’t resentful, or intimidated, or anxious, or all that other crap you usually see between rivals.

They were genuinely happy for him

They were proud of how far he has come since they last saw him, they were excited for his performance. 

They know they’re much older, they know this is Yurio’s first time competing alongside the ‘grown ups’. And they fully support him. As it should be. 

And the way they turned to each and reacted at the same time… God, it just gives them the whole ‘real couple’ thing. 

I dont know if i make sense im just so emotional right now and im so happy this happened 

i love yuri on ice and the relationships portrayed here i love it so much 

WHY THE BLARKE WAS STRONG TONIGHT:
  • bellamy said her name about twelve times in an hour
  • clarke knowing octavia was the reason for his sadness, and gently reassuring him despite him snapping at her
  • bellamy panicking when she didn’t respond
  • he thought he was about to see her dead body
  • “except maybe clarke” - king roan 
  • he saw a knife to her throat
  • “come on clarke”
  • they fucking smiled and laughed in relief he sagged in relief
  • the parallel of them on the beach to the gates of arkadia in season 2
  • “she’ll see how special you are”
  • his face after she said that
  • the way his voice got all soft when he said her name
  • their theme surging in the background
  • and bellamy realizing he never did get to say what he should have the last time they were in this position
  • and trying to
  • only to be stopped by her
  • why would they develop this if it wasn’t going anywhere?

Okay guys. I’m gonna be real with you for a sec. The Captain Underpants movie is coming out in June, and y'all in the LGBT community and those who support it should totally make sure you watch it!! The movie is based off a 12-book series. In the last book, one of the protagonists, Harold, is revealed to be gay. This is super huge for an elementary series of kids books!!

The movie coming out is based on the first four books (that I’m aware of), and if it does well, Dreamworks will probably finish making the series. It would be so important to have that sort of representation for young LGBT kids seeing this movie!! I’ve rarely seen movies where kids are revealed to be LGBT, and that would be such a huge stepping stone!

Anyway!! This movie looks really fun and exciting on top of having the two protagonists that are minorities (Harold’s best friend George is black, and both boys have AHHD). So support it if you can!!

You couldn’t look at me.

I was right there, and you couldn’t look at me.

Maybe it killed you to see that I could smile without you, that I could laugh with someone who wasn’t you. Maybe you finally realized that I could breathe and live, and that I didn’t need you after all.

Because at some point I got tired of chasing, chasing someone who was never going to come around. I was a fool, going back and forth playing your stupid, little game. The difference between you and I though, I tried to get through to your heart - I cared, I loved, and you didn’t. You could’ve let me in, you should’ve let me in, you needed to let me in.

But you made a decision, and your decision wasn’t me.

Teddy’s sorting as seen by the Marauders


Tonks: He will be a Hufflepuff.

Sirius: Gryffindor.

Tonks: Hufflepuff

Sirius: No!

Tonks: Yes.

Remus: SHUT IT.

Tonks: It’s not my fault if your boyfriend doesn’t understand Teddy will be a Hufflepuff.

Sirius: No he will be–

Remus: *firmly* Padfoot.

Sirius: *obeys like a puppy*

Tonks: See? I–

Remus: You, too. They are at I. Teddy, will be on the stool soon.

James: *grinning* This place will be hell for all of you when Harry’s children get sorted.

Lily: He means it. You should have seen him at Harry’s sorting.

Teddy sits on the stool.

Sirius: *to himself* Come on, say he’s a Gryffindor.

Tonks: *whispering* Hufflepuff. Hufflepuff. Mum raised you right, now come on.

Remus: They are both nuts.

James: Well, you have a type Moony.

Hufflepuff!

Tonks: Teddy YES!

Sirius: Teddy NO!

Lily: *smiling* Did he just–

Remus: *laughing* His hair is purple.

James: *grinning* Look at Minnie, I think she is about to cry.

Sirius: I feel betrayed. James why are you so happy?

James: I mean, uh, I kinda knew he would be a Hufflepuff.

Sirius: *stares*

Lily: It was kind of obvious, Sirius.

Tonks: *stifles her laughter*

Remus: You know the drill Pads, he was raised by Andy after all. She raised Tonks, too. It’s just how it works.

Sirius: Still, a man can hope.

Tonks: I’m sure Weasley and Potter kids will make up for this. 

James: Oh, they will. Don’t worry. The Potter clan will all be in Gryffindor, we got this.

Lily: James!

James: Don’t fight me on this woman. 

Remus: *laughing* I still do think he has a bit of Gryffindor in him. 

Sirius: *excitedly* That’s the spirit.

Remus: But that doesn’t change the fact that I’m proud to have a Hufflepuff son.

Lily: As you should.

James: Now what? We wait another 6 years for James to get sorted?

Tonks: I’m pretty sure Teddy will give us a good amount of mischief until he arrives.

Remus: Of course he will, he’s directly related to a Marauder after all.

Sirius: The most dangerous one to be exact.

Tonks: How?

James: Who do you think was the mastermind of all those pranks Dora?

Tonks: *gesturing to James and Sirius* You two!

Lily: Oh honey, it was Remus. I learned when it was too late, too.

Remus: *grinning* I mostly got away with it, too.

Tonks: We are in for some serious fun then.

Everyone stares at Tonks.

Tonks: *panicking* I mean we are in for some good fun.

Sirius: Yes, we are.

Supernatural:  10 Lessons From Tonight’s Episode

“Regarding Dean,” Episode 11, Season 12

1.  Dean canonically loves bunnies, and should have one with him at all times. 

Add it to the list of bunker animals, along with Sam’s dog and Cas’s guinea pig.

It also helps that the bunny sort of looks like him. 

Like, come on.  Tell me you don’t see the resemblance.

2.  He’s also taking steps towards being more open about who and what he loves.

Baby steps, Dean.  Baby steps.

3.  This is not a sentence I ever expected to hear come out of Dean’s mouth, but I am insanely glad that it did.

4.  Nor was this one, though honestly it’s just as good.

5.  Honestly, this whole exchange was just pure, bisexual gold.

*Cough* As soon as you walked in, you had the hots for Larry. *Cough*

6.  Dean needs and deserves to use a grenade launcher, and I am shocked and enraged that he hasn’t.

Look at the anguish on his face.  Just let him shoot the damn grenades, you monsters.

7.  Rowena, like any sane person, loves giving Dean nose boops. 

Get it, gurl!  LOL, this is honestly such a cute, fun episode. :)  

8.  …Okay, maybe it’s not so fun. 

9.  I TAKE IT BACK, THIS EPISODE IS THE PERSONIFICATION OF EMOTIONAL ANGUISH. 

DEAN, BABY, PLEASE DON’T CRY.  I’LL TAKE YOU IN MY ARMS AND CUDDLE YOU AND TELL YOU YOUR NAME UNTIL EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT AGAIN.

10.  Dean is a raging bisexual, and everyone just needs to come to terms with that.

Come on, SPN writers:  show me one heterosexual man who derives that much enjoyment from riding a mechanical bull.  Point one out to me.  I’ll wait.  Never mind the fact that he’s way too good at riding things for someone who’s never shown much interest in horses.  

Jesus fucking Christ. 


Overall rating:  9/10 for cuteness, Larry, and making me cry like a little bitch.  One point redacted for forced heterosexuality, but otherwise an amazing and very memorable ep from a solid season.  Honorable mention for the perennially patient Sammy.

Can You All Reblog This

If you are okay with roleplaying with multiples of the same muse? I know there are some popular characters out there that people are going to relate with. I see some people refusing to roleplay multiples of the same muse. I’ve come to learn that each take on a muse is different and I like seeing different interpretations on a popular muse. So please reblog this if you are totally cool with interacting with multiple rpers with the same muse. 

Note: Each interpretation is a muns own vision and therefore muses should not be compared and criticized. Thank you for understanding. 

Radiation in the real Mojave Wasteland

Before I get into the details you should know that the majority of the radiation that fell across the Mojave is gone by now. However that does not mean there are not still pockets of it left and of course uranium mines and so on. 

Post WWII the US wanted to test as many bombs as possible to see what the effects were in all sorts of conditions, depths, heights and so on. At the time the most sparsely populated place in the US was in Southern Nevada. This was when Las Vegas was just beginning to come into it’s own and I-15 to Los Angeles had not even been constructed yet.

Here is a map of the Nevada Test Range

And here is what the most heavily cratered part of it looks like

The majority of those detonations were underground however the site had been used for above ground and aerial detonation also. 

All of the material blasted into the atmosphere had to go somewhere and one of the biggest air currents in the area goes from the ocean through Los Angeles and into central Utah. It covers the majority of the Mojave desert and of course that material was blown directly into it. 

Here is a map of the three heaviest effected regions in the states of Nevada, Utah and Arizona

My Grandfather was living in St George Utah at the time having retired from the Army post WWII and he, with his wife and five kids were all subjected to the fallout from Nuclear blasts in Nevada. My mother and uncles did not develop problems from it but my Grandmother had lung cancer in her later years and my Grandfather had a variety of health problems from a weak immune system in his 50′s until his death in his 80′s. What they experienced was a very real concern that many people in the area experienced and it was not until the late 1980′s that a real solid investigation on the effects of being down wind of the blasts had. 

The Radioactive Fallout lost the majority of its Radioactivity within a few years but there are hot spots dotting the Mojave where sediment has collected since the testing being washed down river or through floods and they measure a higher radiation than normal. None of them are particularly lethal, you’d have to spend a few months on them to get a high enough dose to matter but it is a concern for the smaller species in the area that do have to deal with it. 

The other problem we face out here are the hundreds of Uranium Mines all over the desert. I’ve talked a lot about them before but many of these mines had no regulation on them and people just dug wherever they could and contaminated the surrounding area. Uranium itself does not have too much Radioactivity unless you detonate it and those fine fallout particles settle however it’s a heavy metal and will leech into the soil and water table like mercury will. I was poisoned by Uranium when I inhaled a lot of fine ore dust over the period of a few hours as I napped on a fine tailings pile of sand. I had to be treated with Iodine and have my system flushed and it took a bit before I was back to normal. I had a representative from Utah’s Mining Regulation tell me that for every known Uranium mine there are probably two they don’t know about. The ones that are particularly dangerous have been sealed off like the one in the photo below. 

It’s just a fact of life out here in the Mojave. The mutation rate from what I have seen is no higher than normal. We do get mutations in animals every so often but you get that all across the US.

So when people say I am only playing at Fallout and I’m obsessed with it they don’t really get that I actually live it. I live in the most heavily nuclear bombed area in the world. At one point just about everyone living down here in the 50′s was exposed to high levels of fallout. I’ve been exposed to Uranium. I also scrap, scavenge, spelunk, hunt, trap and survive off the land. I was doing this long before the Fallout games even existed and They just over exaggerated a part of my life. New Vegas in particular since it takes place in my home region. 

Sometimes reality is just as messed up as fiction. 

When I first met you, I was drawn to the person you pretend to be… I was attracted to your confidence, your vibrancy and your happy-go-lucky persona… But as time went on, I got to know you better and I began to realize that you keep parts of yourself hidden because you think they’re not good enough for the world to see. I began to see that the positive, self-assured person you present to the world – the person that everybody else sees when they look at you – is not the same person you see when you look at yourself.
And like you – I too resent the person you see in the mirror… but for different reasons. Your resentment comes from self-doubt, and a lack of real self-confidence – but mine comes from knowing that the person you see isn’t real. It’s like you’re looking at yourself through a twisted fun-house mirror and I resent that your warped self-reflection takes away all the confidence you should have in yourself.And in a way I love neither the person you pretend to be, nor the person you see in the mirror – because neither of them are real. And yet in another way, I love them both… because the person I fell so completely in love with is, in a way, a part of them both and yet at the same time – nothing like either of them… The person I love may not be as confident as the person you pretend to be – but they should be … because they are a million times more beautiful than the person you see in the mirror.
The person I fell in love with… is the person you really are.

I should hit the milestone in the next few days) and to celebrate the release of The Sims 4: Vampires, I've made this lil set consisting of two hairs themed after characters from The Vampire Diaries. Both hairs are base game compatible, hat compatible & come in all 18 of EA’s colours. 

The Vicki hair still has a slight issue around the fringe where it distorts depending on how your sims eyebrows are positioned but its pretty easy to fix in game, just move the brows into a position where the distortion is unnoticeable ( you can’t even see it in this preview)

Download the hairs here.

i want to say, as a catholic born-and-raised and loves-jesus-amen sort of girl… i am irrevocably here for you, no matter what faith you come from. i believe we are all seeing god through different glasses; he’s got a big garden and i’m sure there’s more than one gate to get into it.

for all of you out there who are wondering if your family is going to be safe, who are worried that if you leave for a family emergency you’ll never be allowed to come back, who are labelled terrorists despite all common sense; for all of you who dared be born on another continent: i’m praying for you and that the tide turns the way it should, that the waves bring you back home. you belong here, beside me, and i am one of those who will stand up and fight for you to come home to us, in this country of many gods.

for all of you who are out there watching nazis sweep into our government, who are watching the pasts of their families become suddenly more relevant, who have to listen while hand-wringers debate if a call to genocide is as evil as a swift punch to the face - who have to watch their friends say i wouldn’t fight for you, i’m too in love with my own peace; who have to watch the grey-morality of bystanders turn the other cheek - i’m here for you. and i am praying.

my christian girls and my queer lovers of the bible, like me, who struggle with our sexuality and our faith, who are watching it thrown back into our faces, who are hearing a man use our god to torture our brothers and sisters into heterosexuality, who are threatened with prison for daring to take control of their bodies, who are watching the church suffocate - i am praying that god knows we love him and feels the same.

and for those of you who are agnostic or atheist or just unsure. it’s okay. i don’t divide the line anyway. i believe in science as an expression of god (what else could the big bang be, anyway), and i love you for your faith. religion is becoming more dangerous every day. a weapon or a burden. and i’m asking you, please, don’t just write off our names. read, make opinions. learn about what the religions really have to say. muslim isn’t a bad word. catholics aren’t evil. jewish people are just like you (Einstein in particular). and keep fighting. breathe science into every corner of this earth, because we need that right now. the only answer to lies is objective truth. don’t let him get to you.

we are one nation, indivisible. 

he will not divide us.
