I’m actually concerned for boys who complain about how different girls look without makeup. Like did you think eyeshadow permanently alters a girls eyelid? Are you frightened when people change clothes

Babies have no concept of object permanence

That’s one of the sickest burns I’ve ever read. 


What If Your Friends Acted Like Your Pets


New Jersey-based photographer Ryan Struck seeks to capture the thrill and beauty of surfing in his gorgeous images of crashing waves awash with the glow of natural sunlight.

"My mouth is a fire escape.
The words coming out
don’t care that they are naked.
There is something burning in there."

Andrea Gibson, “I Sing The Body Electric, Especially When My Power’s Out” (via wordsnquotes)







The Generation of Miracles eat together.

They have teikout.

When they go out to do karaoke

Kuroko seirinades them

And the end of the day Aomine says, “See you tououmorrow.”

Kise says, “I’ll Kaijou all later!”

But Murasakibara misplaces his phone and asks, “Yousen my phone anywhere?”

"You Shuutoku a look under the couch in the karaoke room," suggests Midorima before everyone goes home

  1. You are stronger than you realise.
  2. You are crueller than you realise.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.

"She entered the story knowing she would emerge from it feeling she had been immersed in the lives of others, in plots that stretched back twenty years, her body full of sentences and moments, as if awaking from sleeping with a heaviness caused by unremembered dreams."

loud sighing

look kiddos: due to tumblr’s half-baked tagging system (where only so many tags count towards actually categorizing a given post), tags on this site have evolved into an acceptable form of dispensing and sharing commentary, but that is not the case on other websites — ESPECIALLY AO3. tags on AO3 are intended to be functional, not conversational, and not only do excessive paragraphs of tags like these look patently ridiculous and sell your work short, they also make life harder for the site’s tag wranglers who volunteer their time to keep the tags organized so people can actually find your fic.

in short, knock it off.

This is something I would never, ever say in almost any other circumstance, but if you tag your fic on AO3 as if you were tagging a tumblr post, YOU ARE DOING FANDOM WRONG.


FYI guys this makes me actual facts bonkers and I’m not even involved with AO3 beyond posting there. You are actively driving off readers when you do it. If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for your poor fanfic, which we are ignoring because of its tags. 

okay, but everyone is aware that each time this discussion makes the rounds the AO3 tag-wranglers very clearly state that this makes no difference to them at all right? We’re all clear on that?

'Cause, if you hate it you hate it, and that's completely understandable, but the “think of the t-ws!” is largely misplaced.

Oh no I just hate it and think it’s a deeply inappropriate place to have a narcissistic jerk-off. 


I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
