I was on my high school student government (don’t come at me I needed volunteer hours for IB), and we did a retreat every year to plan all the events. On these retreats we had 2 major events happen.
In grade 11 we were enjoying the evening when we heard about the Paris Bataclan theatre attack. We had a classmate on exchange in Paris at the time and thankfully she wasn’t at the theatre.
In grade 12 we woke up to the news that Fidel Castro died.
But, yeah, I just think it’s really weird that both years we had our retreats and a major news event occurred.
the idea of john cena sitting down to watch supernatural, getting to the gunnar lawless episode and being like “oh dean is bi for sure” and then getting to later seasons and saying “oh he’s bi and in love with his best friend” and then getting to 15x18 and feeling so strongly about it that he tweets about love confessions said too late and then follows a bunch of destiel accounts is so. so funny.
Tumblr sure is a good way to learn about what’s happening on twitter.
heartbreaking doctor who moments ♢ vincent hearing his worth
I just wondered, between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?

This is the only clip from Dr Who I have ever seen and I will often rewatch it. I cry every time.
What are your thoughts on this?
bruh Mewtwo knows what’s up
My uni keeps sending me emails about the virtual convocation, and I just, ugh, I truly could not care less about it. Why would I want to sit in front of my laptop for hours just to hear some guy I’ve never met say my name and degree? What’s the fucking point?
Change a single letter and change the word game
I decided this would be fun. So reblog with a new word and see how long we can make it.
The starting word is…
I get that being frozen for 100 years is a tough thing to go through but honestly Aang should have used it for comedy more
Katara: wow so this is Omashu
Aang: back in my day it was called weed city
Sokka: I’m… pretty sure it wasn’t
Aang: that’s what the fire nation wants you to think
Bumi, the second they arrive: welcome to weed city
Sokka: what the fuck
Imagine them getting stuck in Ba Sing Se and Aang just being like, “I wonder if the sandal pit is still here.”
And everyone’s like, “The what?”
And he’s all, “The sandal pit. It’s where I buried all the sandals of people who were mean to me and my friends.”
Cut to the gaang walking around town, and Aang’s muttering about it being around here somewhere, when suddenly Toph stops and says, “There’s a big pile of sandals about fifty feet below that cobbler’s house,” and Sokka loses his mind.
This raises the question of whether Aang is telling the truth or if Toph and Bumi just happen to have the same sense of humor as him.
May I offer a third option into the mix:
It’s just sheer coincidence but it sends Aang hog fuckin’ wild
in the fire nation:
aang: i wonder if they still have the national fire burping competition?
sokka: okay now that’s definitely fake
after the war
zuko: you guys can’t go home you’ll miss the national fire burping competition!
sokka: you’re lying, you’re definitely lying
iroh: i won seven years in a row, until those cowards banned me
My favorite thing about fanfic Zuko is that he just does not have a reference point for sexism. Like:
Some person: isn’t that women’s work?
Zuko, thinking of Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee: women’s work? You mean homicide?
When Zuko becomes Fire Lord he’s sitting in a meeting where there happens to be only one female advisor, Takiko (Which strikes him as a bit weird but for now he’s got bigger gazellefish to fry because he’s still trying to figure out who is worth keeping around even if *sometimes* (every day) he’s tempted to just turf them all out and start from scratch rather than deal with the paranoia) and Takiko’s in the middle of giving a presentation when they run out of tea. One of the male advisors remarks on this loudly, staring pointedly at Takiko. Because some female in the room “obviously” she’s the one who should be making the tea.
Takiko, used to this nonsense, starts to move towards the pot but to the collective shock of everyone in the room she is waved away by the Fire Lord.
“No, no, you’re in the middle of your presentation, I’ve got this,” says Zuko.
Male advisor: *sputtering* “My Lord! Surely Takiko can do that. Is it not below your station to pour tea?”
Zuko: “It’s fine. Uncle Iroh always pours his own tea and he’s ranked above all of you.”
*Room collectively recalls that Uncle Iroh is Dragon of the West*
Male advisor, changing tack: “She has uh… much more experience with such things.”
Zuko: *displaying an impressive level of control in using a fire technique to heat the pot that he learned during his time working in the Earth Kingdom tea shop* “I doubt it.”
(The kicker: Zuko makes better tea than anyone in the room has had in an official meeting in *years*.)
Idk when one piece will end but fuck, if any of you manga readers spoil the ending for me and other anime watchers? First of all you are the worst kind of person. Second, if you’re one of my mutuals, you will be dead to me. Third, if I just see it from some random person, well you’re dead.
I’ll just have to like, not use the internet for like 2 years when it’s getting close to the end. But as long as everyone tags spoilers then we won’t have a problem.
To the kids: Happy Christmas!
To each other: Merry Chrysler!
Wait, there’s physical copies of Fallout Equestria? That’d have to be massive.
The first run was five hardbacks of progressively increasing girth. The stack is hefty, but the books are comfortable. Each chapter has chapter art too, which I consider a plus in all fantasy books.
Later runs were single-book softcover monstrosities. I think I saw another five-volume hardback run recently, but I’m not deeply involved in the fandom anymore.
The second print run was two volumes, hardback, with jackets. Dunno about any subsequent runs.
I still think the 5-volume split was the best option. It’s a big damn story.
(For anyone who hasn’t read it: yes, that’s a functional replica of the main character’s go-to weapon. No, I didn’t customize it like that; I bought it from the person who did.)
anon PLEASE tell me your teacher is the author of this
Ok, I Kind of hate that I know this, but I’m pretty sure that anon’s teacher did NOT write the books the others are showing off. He wrote the darker, edgier and somehow even longer fanfic OF that fanfic called Project Horizons.
Original Fallout Equestria was written by someone known as Kkat who I’m 90% sure is a woman and the story only has some PG-13ish scenes at worst (you know, aside from the violence and gore that comes with a Fallout setting.) Project Horizons was written by a guy known as Somber, who I remember him mentioning in the post-chapter notes that he got fired for failing the wrong student once and the fic itself includes multiple explicit sex scenes.
it’s important to me u know what the 3rd printing looks like. please note the gilded pages
one of tumblr’s secret trump cards is its ability to deliver absolutely OBLITERATING gut punches like this post without any context or warning whatsoever

i was going to do some kind of funny bit about the fact that biden’s staff photographer used an ultrawide lens indoors, and how jimmy carter and his wife are being attacked by biden homunculi but like.. just fucking look at it
