"Maybe happiness is this: not feeling like you should be elsewhere, doing something else, being someone else."

poundyoulikeyesterdaysbeef:

My dear, you know how stores have signs that say “Open” and “Closed”? They put those signs up so no one has to waste time pulling on the handle when there’s no hope of getting inside.  We can all take a tip from those stores!  You can go literal and wear an “Open for Business” sign, but I have found being too direct just confuses people more.  It’s better to be subtle.  Personally, I love to show off my devastating curves with sexy dresses.  I find a plunging neckline and a broach made of condoms lets the men know I am looking for love.  If you don’t care for showing skin, be yourself.  You know what they say, there is nothing sexier than a girl in a pair of jeans and a tee-shirt that says, “I love the pole and the hole”. Preferably with a fun illustration.  

Once you have made it clear that you are open for business, there will be unwanted customers.  If you were a shop, you would be stuck with those unsavory characters, but your body is not a corner store.  Your body is a temple!  When someone unworthy tries to enter your temple (or rub against the door), make it clear their presence is unwelcome.  I usually try a bit of cheeky humor (“You must be at least this long to ride” in one of my personal favorites), but you may have to get firm.  I find, “Take your hand off me or I will rip it off and use it to slap some sense into you” usually gets the point across.  Remember, diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  That’s why I have diamond encrusted brass knuckles.  It’s an accessory that says, “I am a lady of taste and elegance, but I will fuck your shit up if you don’t treat me with respect.”

"It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured. I realised, somehow, through the screaming in my mind, that even in that shackled, bloody helplessness, I was still free: free to hate the men who were torturing me, or to forgive them. It doesn’t sound like much, I know. But in the flinch and bite of the chain, when it’s all you’ve got, that freedom is a universe of possibility. And the choice you make, between hating and forgiving, can become the story of your life."
— Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

Sometimes I wish I could respond to well-written fan fiction with an interpretive dance because I can’t write a review that expressed my feelings as well as what they’ve already created!

As a writer and a reader of fanfic, I fully endorse the idea of interpretive dances as reviews.  I really don’t fantasize about meeting people I admire, because I know I won’t be able to express myself.  I’ll just say, “You’re great” and the person will never know how much they meant to me.  With fanfic or fanart, you have a chance to tell someone exactly how special they are… and all I can ever think of is, “You’re great!”  

I think that’s an amazing idea, actually. There are all kinds of valid responses to a piece that you love! I love seeing the fan art and illustrations and crafts and everything that people create, and I think that’s just as valid and expressive as a review. Obviously I love reviewing, because it’s my thing and my way to be able to express to writers and artists how much I appreciate what they do and the effort and thought they put into it… but from the other side of things, when you’ve made something, ANY response from somebody makes your day, no matter what form it takes. I once had somebody respond to my story by writing their OWN fanfic of the universe I’d created, and it just totally blew my mind, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Tl;dr: the best thing in the world for a creative person is knowing that they’ve connected with somebody else out in the world and made them feel or think something. So whether your response is interpretive dance, a detailed (or not so detailed) review, fan art, or squealy, excited, gif-assisted flailing online, you’re definitely going to make their day. I know it can be intimidating and frustrating for people to leave feedback, but seriously, anything is good and appreciated. It’s just a signal to somebody off in the distance to let them know that you read it, you understand, and you DIG THAT.

only Bluey can write a Tl;dr that is only one line shorter than her original answer. XD

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
