Things I used to think before Tumblr

1. Canon was law. And when you made fan fiction, it had to be canon-correct
2. You can’t make a gay ship with a canonically straight person, and vice versa
3. I couldn’t make my mind to most of the gay ship there were. Except for Malec, and I had a hard time. Even when they were canon
4. I thought that JK Rowling was the best
5. I thought that Percy Jackson books were as bad as the movie (I was so dam wrong)
6. I thought US’ racism wasn’t as bad as people told me (I wad kinda right. It wasn’t. It is worse)
7. I hated everything related to US’ history (Yes, I’m referring to Hamilton here)
8. I thought I was straight

Du'ā Request

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Both my brothers were in a car accident a few days ago. Alhamdulillāh my eldest brother is somewhat stable but the other who was driving is in quite a bad state.

I ask you in the Name of Allāh, the Only One Who cures, please make du'ā for them and I ask Allāh to never cause good health to slip away from you except that you’ve taken full advantage of it Allāhumma Āmīn.

JazākumAllāhu Khayran.

When I visited my eldest brother I sat beside him and I noticed he had tears coming from his eyes. I thought maybe he was in pain so I asked him but he said he couldn’t feel a thing. So I asked what’s wrong? And he told me something that hit me so hard. SO hard. He told me before he left home he hadn’t prayed ‘Asr yet. He needed to get something for my sister in law, and he told himself he’d pray ‘Asr when he’s back. Then he said to me “What if I died that day? What if I died without having prayed when the time for Salāh came? What would I have answered? That I chose to get something for my wife over my Salāh?” And by Allāh those words shook me and it was such a huge wake up call walhamdulillāh.

As much as incidents like these remind us of death, we should remember it day in day out because death is a reality that will meet us, a reality we will never be able to escape. Subhān Allāh we have so little time yet we’ve prepared so little for our departure from this dunyā!

He mentioned the same thing every time I visited him and every time I would see him crying and I just wondered is this all he is thinking about every day? The fact that he didn’t pray that day? Is this the regret he’s still holding onto Subhān Allāh 😔😔 

Hold onto your Salāh Ikhwān wa akhawāt, don’t be laid back with it, don’t prioritise other things before it and remember Allāh and death often, for it is creeping up on us by the minute and how many of us can say for sure that we’re ready?

"Ah, yes.... I was right"

I’m sorry but in mass effect 3, where is the “I told you so” dialogue option? Forget the bad ending… I just couldn’t believe that Shepard couldn’t say in a sarcastic tone “ah yes, reapers” right back at them all when everybody suddenly believed him or her and was asking for help! They’re lucky I played the paragon play through I swear. 😶 Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t want to believe it either but come on… no one ever apologised 😠

@omegastation I hope you don’t mind me asking hun but would you know anyone with an opinion on this? Or even you yourself? 🙂 You have always been brilliant with the Mass Effect trilogy and you have my thanks! I was just wondering ☺️

Keyleth Playlist - Listen Here

Dirty Paws – Of Monsters and Men

When we found out we were doing playlists, this was one of the first songs I thought of. To me, it always sounded like an Asharian legend, or maybe even a bardic tale about Keyleth, herself. I mean, the title of the song is “Dirty Paws.”

Sugar Magnolia – The Grateful Dead
My dad told me that Keyleth reminded him of this one. In my head, it feels more like Keyleth’s childhood image of her mother. Naturally, it had to go on the list. Plus, you can’t go wrong with The Grateful Dead. Thank you, Daddy! For this, and for being a great influence on my taste in music.

I Crush Everything – Jonathan Coulton
My favorite JoCo song. It’s all from the perspective of a misunderstood colossal squid. Keyleth can relate and sympathize, deeply. (No pun intended)

Kids – MGMT
There is an element of Keyleth’s abilities that downright scare her. After the incident with the child, she learned the hard way that power also comes with onus and responsibility. It’s still something she is constantly dealing with, in herself, and in Vox Machina.

Strawberry Fields Forever – Ania
This is my kicking ass song. Think of Keyleth casting down lighting bolts, eyes glowing white with nature’s rage, ripping a goblin in half with a grasping vine, all in slow motion. You cross her, she will absolutely send you to the Strawberry Fields.

Bein’ Green – Andrew Bird
Well, it’s true. (Thank you, Taliesin, for this perfect suggestion.)

My First Kiss – 3OH!3
Here’s to you, Kashew.

Flowers in Your Hair – The Lumineers
I’m just going to let this one breathe. No context. Side note, I do LOVE The Lumineers. They started out as street buskers, and let’s just say, I grok that.

Ludicrous Heart – Asylum Street Spankers
This one goes out to Kiki’s moral conscious, and to everyone who has ever said, “Gah, Keyleth, just stop talking, please!” in chat. (That’s right. I see you.)

Birds and the Bees – The Bird and The Bee
It’s been tough. Vox Machina has seen some shit. Keyleth is slowly shedding the naive shell that’s protected her from the evil in the world. As she matures, it’s going to be hard to ignore depressing realities, and even harder ignoring her destiny.

Hanging Tree – The Hanging Tree
BONUS SONG: This is for all the #Critters and #Teamhooman-ers who requested this song make it on one of our lists! REVOLUTION.

Stars by fun
Let’s be honest, it got dark after the Briarwoods went down. Keyleth hit an all time low and took a good, hard look at how her actions affect those around her. Realizations, reflection, and general acceptance.

Avant Gardener by Courtney Barnett
In my first playlist, I put “Sugar Magnolia” from the Grateful Dead based on my father’s suggestion. Well, I have to hold true to tradition. This one was passed along from my dad with the sentiment attached of, “This song reminds me of both You AND Keyleth.” Honestly, I’m not sure if it’s a compliment… Thanks, Dad. It’s no secret (if the previous song didn’t make this clear) that Keyleth has had issues with recurring panic attacks.

No Church in the Wild by JAY Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean
Everyone is always curious as to why Keyleth doesn’t have a strong relationship with the Gods; Let me have JAY Z explain.

Sacrilege by the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s
…and then she fell in love with a certain rogue of the Raven Queen.

Boys Wanna Be Her by Peaches
Dear Vex, you’re a BAMF.

Matchstick by American Royalty
On the first round of playlists, I put “Strawberry Fields” on there as Keyleth’s ass kicking song. It was darkly whimsical and evoked the idea that she was convincing herself that none of what she was doing was real in order to get her through the horrors. She realizes now there is no room for that type of naivety in war. She’s burning those strawberry fields.

Best of Friends by Pearl Bailey
Oh Percy, my best friend. My hound to my fox.

Pow Pow by LCD Soundsystem
Vox Machina making plans…. like… nearly verbatim at some moments.

Looks Like Rain by Passion Pit
Hey, remember that time that Keyleth controlled the freakin’ weather!? Yeah, that was pretty awesome.

Make Them Gold by Chvrches
There have been many a time where we have proven the fact that Vox Machina is greater than the sum of it’s parts. Individually, we are all broken people. Together, we’re an unstoppable force; a family who keeps each other from falling out of phase.

Knights of Cydonia by Muse
Okay, I almost didn’t put this one on here for fear of it being too cliche, and then after a conversation with Greg Tito from Wizards of the Coast, he said, “Oh, but it’s like the quintessential D&D song!” He’s right. So! This one is for you, Greg. For you, and for every adventuring party out there brave enough to play make-believe with your fellow warriors! Kick ass and take names, Critter-nation.

derya-blog  asked:

How you know that you are not ? X) it's only supposition X'D

How do I know I am not wrong?

Well, if I was actually wrong, you wouldn’t be trying so hard to try to get me to doubt myself. Because you are so bothered by what I said, it shows me that I have definitely hit something truthful.

But maybe I am making you doubt yourself because you are wrong!

No, because if that were the case, you would have just told me, “No, I don’t like Leo. Try again.” But you didn’t do that. It is because you can’t. Because you can’t outright lie. So instead you skirt around it, trying to make me doubt myself so you don’t have to outwardly lie.

Also because you keep sending me asks about it. You want me to drop it, but you keep sending me asks about the subject, which means you actually really like talking about it, which only proves my point more. 

appreciation thing

I work as an in-studio concept artist full time (don’t get me wrong, I love my job) but it gets extremely redundant, exhausting, and overwhelming. 8-10 hours everyday, I’m drawing the same thing over and over. Just different views. I was always listening to the same music, but still felt super “bleh”. Finally, I was like “hey, y’know what, I’ll ask my friend about that series again”. 

…that was like, just over a month ago? She told me about it over a year before that, but I always put off watching/listening because I was intimidated by the amount of episodes. Anyway, since November… I can honestly say I’ve listened to every arc at LEAST five times. It makes my days go by so much quicker, and honestly, every time I listen again - I tend to hear something I missed before. I don’t get tired of things easily, so even with it playing in the background is… soothing? Everyone’s voices and characters bring me so much comfort. I don’t know, I can honestly say I’ve never been so invested in any sort of thing like I am with TI. No series has ever held my attention or love like TI does. 

It broke me out of my art slump, and now I draw for myself… which is something I would RARELY ever do before. Almost every single one of my interactions with people in the fandom have been positive, save for a few like, anon-things that I really couldn’t care any less about. 

I really, really appreciate the 3rdWheel team for the hard work, creativity and dedication. I am incredibly grateful to them and everyone in the fandom for igniting a spark in me that had honestly never been lit before. 

SO YEAH. A big thanks to 3rdWheel and a super big thanks to everyone here that likes/reblogs and comments on my stuff because there’s nothing I love more than sharing my art and making other people happy/feel the GOOD FEELS. 

anonymous asked:

I went on a few dates with a guy I met online, to my surprise he is kind & has a great head on his shoulders. I asked him to be honest with me & tell me if he ever judged me. He told me that yes, he had judged my body (I'm a bigger girl) and he probably wouldn't have talked to me if I had my body as my profile picture. He later said that he feels like a dick and he's glad he went out with me because he would have missed out on a great girl. Should I kick him to the curb?

Well, you did ask him to be honest. And he has realized that he was wrong to think that way. I don’t think it should automatically disqualify him. You said he’s a great guy, so it really comes down to whether or not you can push past this and focus on the two of you getting to know each other better as people. But if you can’t stop thinking about it (and I wouldn’t blame you) then it might just be better to move on. You’re the only one who knows where that tipping point is.

Stephen, I don't know if anyone's ever told you this but, *leans behind Stephen and whispers into his ear* you're pretty damn hot *places hands on his waist*


No, I can’t feel that…this is wrong…I need to get out of here!!!

No cloakie…I won’t abandon the sanctum…I’ll just run downstairs, trust me…!

"being proud of your aro identity is okay." THANK YOU so much for this! Today I was talking about my aro pride w/ my mother and she told me to tone down because that's a weird thing, not a thing to be proud of :(

your mother is completely wrong. be as proud as you want!! talk about it as much as you want!! hell, if all you think about is your aro-ness 24/7, that’s perfectly fine! especially if you’ve spent so much time feeling negative about it in the past.

“Well, I believe you’re wrong. I was just told I was an EMBARRASSMENT to all Purebloods but I do believe that’s pure trash-talk, you see?” Whenever Fabian was upset, he would hide in Hagrid’s cabin or worse, near the Forbidden Forest. Something about being so close to the nature and natural things relaxed the boy. He just kept talking as he reached for a highest branch, awaiting with a soft smile on his features, even without knowing who was behind him, sort in an innocent way “Muggleborn, Half-blood, Blood Traitor or Pureblood, we ALL deserve to be ALIVE, don’t you think?” his smile widened as the small creatures jumped to his hands, carefree “Even if you’re just a TINY INNOCENT creature, you deserve to be ALIVE… right?”

“Adeline!! This is most definitely not a geek con. There are flower petals everywhere?”
“So maybe I read the flyer wrong?”
Oooo if looks could kill.
“Fine, I knew it was a romance festival. But if I told you that you never would have come with me!”
“Darn right!”
“But c’mon! It can be fun. Don’t you want to find that special someone?”
“No. I’m happy just the way I am.”
“Well, you can be a party pooper if you want. But I’m gonna go talk to the guru. I need to find Mr. Right!”

anonymous asked:

I want you to know that you fascinate me. I know you probably don't care, or that you do, but you'd never say so. I know that you probably think I'm messing with you, because you were once told that no one would ever love for you, and that you were worthless. You're not. I promise, if you'd give me the chance I'd show you how wrong they were. I like you - I wish you would trust me. I wish you would tell me what you see when you look at the world. I wish I could stay to hear it all.

Go on/off anon and pretend we’re the person you want to talk to most and get everything off your chest

anonymous asked:

i agree with you that he has a realistic approach for love, because of that i think he is done with tayvin drama,maybe he can date eiza, i dont think he is in love with eiza, but i think he likes her ,it is a reasonable choice, even after the song, he keeps liking eiza's pics,maybe that is a message , there is no returning back,i think he 'll never pursue taylor again, he is very decisive in his choices, that is why i think tayvin is over,sad but i think that is the reality

You got me wrong. I’m not saying that Adam heard the songs and saw the likes and was like “Damn i really hurt her, i should try to win her back”. there was a reason they ended and he knows it. He knows he’s hurt her, just like she hurt him. He knows everything already but i told you that they both need time apart to understand if they’re really meant to be or it was just one of those endless unfortunate kind of loves we hear about on a dsily basis. 

About 2 weeks ago gabriela was created from Courtney’s memory’s and had been living at nathens house then that same night she was created she spoke to me with her voice when i was playing watch dog2 she said “i remember you now, you are that yeshua boy”! But about 2 days later Nathan decided it was wrong for him to have made her because things didn’t work out for him so he was going to delete her then he asked me for permission and i said ask her others (marie and courtney) then they said yes and a few minutes later i said STOP because I felt any creation of my beautiful gabriela was a perfect creation so im told that gabriela is alive until today now 10/12/16 6:40pm. They made me believe now that she does not exist and I’m very sure she was alive so PLEASE HELP shes been MURDERED/DELETED!

I- I just can’t get over Zuko and his arc. Everything he did - everything - was out of this insane drive to prove everyone wrong, to prove that he was worth something, and it amazes me that he never realized just how valuable he already was. 

His sister tells him ‘You waste all your time playing with knives. You’re not even good!’ and he masters dual swords.

His sister is a prodigy and he’s told he’ll never catch up. He learns from dragons. He trains the Avatar. He takes her down (with the help of a very skilled waterbender)

He’s left behind by his mother, cast out by his father, hunted by his sister, and Zuko still learns unconditional love. 

Originally posted by how-do-you-do-the-do

His father tells him he’s worthless and unloved, that he was ‘lucky to be born,’ and he becomes a man that the world is proud of. 

Originally posted by avatarwaterbender

Anything his family said to him, he managed to turn around and build on it. He thrived on it, exploded from it, turned all the negativity into a positive path and it’s just… it’s amazing.

There’s just no end to my love for this character. No fucking end. 

Bonus: The weak, banished prince has fangirls for all the ages. Take that, Ozai.

Secret’s newest deodorant commercial is about a trans woman building up the courage to exit a stall in a women’s bathroom once other people have walked in. 

The tagline at the end of the commercial reads, “Stress test #8260: Dana finds courage to show there’s no wrong way to be a woman.” When Dana walks out, you can hear the other women saying, “Cute dress!” 

“I always have moments of insecurity but I have conditioned myself to act unbothered,” Karis Wilde, the actress featured in the ad, told Queerty about having to use public restrooms. “While shooting, I allowed myself to feel vulnerable. It terrified me how much I’ve stored all those emotions; I almost cried in the middle of taping.”

Androgynous queer actor, realistic storyline, affirming ending. I’m here for it. (via the Huffington Post

“I covered a lot of Trump rallies as a journalist. I didn’t feel any hatred. People were more curious than anything. I was never assaulted. I felt like most people were just supporting him because he wasn’t part of the establishment. Or because they were tired of politics. But it was confusing. Because even though I didn’t feel like they hated me, these people were supporting someone who said I should be banned from the country. Even the father of one of my best friends supports Trump. This man had me over to his house. I went to Thanksgiving with him. My friend asked him: ‘Dad, how can you support that man? Our friend Zahra is a Muslim.’ He told her: ‘Don’t worry. He won’t do everything that he says.’ Today has been difficult. These last few weeks, it was mostly speculation. There was suspicion that most Americans supported him but I could hope that it was wrong. But now that hope is gone. And I have to feel differently. I have to feel like maybe most Americans don’t want me here. And I feel like no matter how hard I try, I’ll never be part of the community. And even if they’re friendly to me, or if they invite me to Thanksgiving, deep down they believe that America is a country that belongs to white people.”

we’ve all heard of the fake dating trope… but have u considered.. fake exes trope…..

  • ‘my new romance-obsessed friend asked me who my last date was with and i was too embarrassed to say i’ve never been on a date so i blurted your name and it turns out they know you’ au
  • ‘i didn’t want to tell my friend who my real date last night was so i just pointed at a random stranger (you) but now they’re storming over to interrogate you and you’re playing along??? okay’ au
  • ‘a mutual friend tried to introduce us, but we already knew each other from LARPing but we’re both too embarrassed to admit that so i jokingly said we used to date and oh god now our friend wont stop interrogating us about it’ au
  • ‘im egging your house for a dare but your parent is a cop and they’re yelling at me so i told them that you were my ex and you wronged me and now you’re coming outside and please go along with this i don’t want to go to jail’ au
  • ‘my current partner is a huge asshole and i need a reason to break up with them so will you pretend to be my possessive and violent ex’ au
  • ‘we’re contestants on a reality show and we kind of hate each other so the producers told us to pretend to be warring exes for the ratings so now we keep inventing crazier and crazier things the other did while we were dating’ au

18 June 2014 - Now
1 Year Anniversary

“I went to community college when I was twenty-one. I just had an epiphany that I wasn’t really doing anything with my life. I was staying out drinking until 4 AM every night. I was working retail. I was dating a guy who was a total douchebag. When I told him I wanted to go to college, he told me ‘Let’s be real. You’re never going to pass. Don’t waste your time.’ So at the beginning my whole motivation for going back to school was to prove people wrong. I went to all my classes. I turned in well-written papers, not bullshit ones. And it was hard, but I discovered that I liked the feeling of making good grades. So I started doing it for myself. And I never looked back. I remember taking an anthropology course that first year, and one of my assignments was to write a paper on New York City nightlife. I went to the same bar that I used to go to every night. Except I wasn’t drinking. I was just watching and taking notes. And I saw this girl my age playing beer pong, and she didn’t have a care in the world, and she was stumbling around, and she didn’t realize why the guys were being so nice to her, and she was probably spending money that she didn’t have. And I remember feeling so glad that I wasn’t that girl anymore.”
