Super-dee-duper set from lisathevampireslayer! I’ve always loved the idea of gifsets like this. We’ve “made it” guys!

OKAY, so I tend to think of introversion and extroversion as the source of a person’s energy. While it CAN manifest as extroverted = outgoing and introverted = solitary, how social you are isn’t really what makes you intro/extroverted. An extroverted person derives their energy from their environment - what’s happening around them, people, events. We already know that Nico wasn’t always the type to keep to himself, and I tend to think of Titan’s Curse!Nico as his natural state. He’s characterized as easily excitable, super curious, always talking and asking questions and I think Nico is at his happiest, his most energized, when he’s around other people. His self-imposed isolation is his coping mechanism after the death of his sister, who was pretty much his only support system growing up. It is a reaction to a traumatic event - it is not the way he naturally engages with his environment. I think the biggest tell of his extroversion for me is the simple fact that Nico is miserable when he’s alone, and he seeks out comfort in small physical interactions (with Hazel, the only person he currently feels close enough to to seek them out with) - holding hands, kisses on the cheek. He wants to be alone to avoid getting hurt - not because he prefers to be alone.
I think Leo’s introversion speaks for itself - I’ve always felt that Leo is at his best, his most genuine, when he’s alone and working on a piece of machinery. He can isolate himself for days on end and tinker with engineering issues and emerge fully recharged afterwards. Leo doesn’t really take in or think about the people around him much, and frankly his interactions with them are often one-sided, with him cracking a joke and them playing it off. All of his energy comes from himself. I’m an introverted person myself and I can be perfectly happy not leaving my room for weeks as long as I have a project to immerse myself in - I feel like Leo is pretty much the same.
+1ing this. So dead on.
Established in 1987, Pendragon is the designer shoemaking duo Jackie Orme Ward and Adrian Lockwood. Their vision? To create something extraordinary and unique; a quest to bring to life shoes you’d dreamt you might one day find; shoes to desire and delight… shoes to treasure.
They accept commissions from around the world and create exclusive limited edition collections, costume shoes, one off exhibition art pieces – all designed and personally hand made. Rare buttons, antique buckles, vintage and hand tooled leathers combine to create the distinct Pendragon signature. You won’t find these shoes anywhere else!
that’s almost too cruel
I had to do this once with Privateer II: The Darkening. It gained a bit when he said “I bet you didn’t play it through, I bet somebody just told you how…” and I was able to smile gently and say “God, possibly, since I wrote the game.” And plainly the Deity was with me that day, as I happened to be carrying docs from my UK agent (who’d done the deal) that showed not only that I was the writer, but the five-figure sum I had been paid. …It was a happy day for me. Not so much for him. I’d never had a referent for the word “slink” for a full grown male before. As in “slink away in utter dejection.” I smiled for at least three days without stopping. And am smiling now… I had completely forgotten about this.
Reblogging because “I beat the game” is fantastic, but “I wrote the damn thing” is even better.
I’m not a gamer but I’ll always reblog these.
I don’t have chronic pain but this artwork is so nice to look at *^*
Just because we’re not writhing on the floor doesn’t mean we’re not hurting. We’ve just gotten really good at hiding it and functioning with it, otherwise we’d literally starve in our beds.
This hits a bit too close to home.
Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to domestic violence…
This is Tonker. Tonker desperately needs a home, or else he’s in danger of being put down because his owner is an irresponsible git.
Here’s the story: Tonker has been living well over a year (possibly two) chained up outside. He has a doghouse, but it’s a tiny little shittily made one. This is in the higher areas of Nevada so, even though we’re in a desert, we’re more likely to get rain and we definitely get snow everytime winter comes around. Not once is Tonker ever brought inside.
Tonker also rarely gets attention from anyone who isn’t my Nana or myself. For one thing, his owner has some sort of job that means he’s rarely ever home for very long. Secondly, his owner just doesn’t seem to plain care. My nana’s talked to him before and apparently he doesn’t let Tonker in the house because he doesn’t want his floors scratched up. I can count the number of times I’ve seen him outside with that dog on one hand- and we are his neighbors who can see where Tonker is chained up right from our living room and computer room. I don’t think they even had a leash for this dog for the longest time until the owner’s sister got him one just this year. The chain they use to keep him outside is so shitty that Tonker has gotten loose numerous times and chased the tires of passing trucks. I shouldn’t have to tell you how dangerous this is, and it only becomes worse when you realize we live right next to a highway. It’s only a matter of time before this dog gets hit by a car.
Tonker is an obnoxiously energetic and loving dog, he really is. He does have a slight jumping problem, but that’s mainly because no one is ever around to train him. Because his owner is a piece of shit human being, this dog has been neglected and thus doesn’t know many commands (although I’ve managed to get him to sit) and isn’t completely socialized. Still, Tonker is a really eager dog who wants to learn, wants some love and attention. He’s just in the worst place for it, mostly because he has one of the worst people for it.
Because Tonker has gotten off his chain so much, his owner is being a pisspoor coward and wants to put him down because he apparently doesn’t have any time to take him to a shelter that will find him a forever home. After a fair bit of yelling on my end, he agreed that he would pay me and my nan the expenses of finding a place to put this dog.
But I need your help, Tumblr.
I’ve already called the Las Vegas SPCA and the Pitbull program that they recommended, neither has any room to take Tonker in. We don’t know where to turn.
If you live in the Southern Nevada area, please contact me. This includes areas around Las Vegas, Pahrump, or Goldfield. We need someone who is willing to take in a loving dog so that he can have a second chance at life with someone who truly cares for him.
I’ve never made ice cream before, so I did you guys a favor and found this recipe elsewhere. This ice cream mixes the salty taste of sea salt with the sweet tastes of cream and sugar. Apparently, Kingdom Hearts II director Tetsuya Nomura had this ice cream on a trip to the Tokyo Disneyland Resort and liked it so much he decided to work with Disney to put it in the games. The characters of Kingdom Hearts II can often be seen eating and talking about this delicious salty-sweet dessert. Enjoy it with your best buddy at twilight.
Ingredients:2 eggs2 c. milk1/3 cup sugar1 t. vanilla1 c. heavy whipping creamsea salt to tasteblue food coloring (optional)
ice pop molds (optional)
Separate the eggs into two good sized bowls and beat the egg whites until stiff. Mix the egg yolks and sugar until thick. Slowly bring milk to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Pour hot milk into yolk/sugar mixture and mix well. Pour milk/yolk/sugar mixture back into pot and heat on medium until thicker to make a custard. Do not boil. Pour custard in with beaten egg whites and mix well. Add sea salt (keeping adding salt until it tastes salty sweet). Put mixture in fridge to cool. Once cool, add cream, vanilla and coloring to mixture. Freeze, following your ice cream maker’s instructions. If you wish, get some ice pop molds. Spray the inside of these with very little PAM spray (or something similar). Then pour the ice cream into the molds right after it comes out of the ice cream maker. Pop the lid on and the stick in and freeze for at least two hours.
