Just finished watching Castle. I’m gonna need 10000000000 fics about Castle and bb!Alexis. Tea parties and dressing up and playing with makeup. All of it. Get on that Castle fandom. I know you’re out there.

ugh SAME i’m 100% here for the dwarves.

Right? I would LOVE to see some backstory for these guys. I would love to know about the brothers Ri, or the Urs. Dwalin, Balin, or the sons of Groin. SOMETHING besides more fucking elves. If I wanted elves, I’d watch LotR. GIVE ME DWARVES (BUT DON’T GIVE ME DEATH)

Dear PJ, how about doing promos for BotFA focused on the race that these movies are SUPPOSED to be about? You know, the DWARVES? The ones Bilbo’s actually with? You seriously could have done all this with just two movies if you’d taken out the extra stuff with the elves and Gandalf and Sauron. Seriously, dude, just give us a movie about dwarves, redeem yourself from Gimli. That’s all we ask. :P

Could someone in Water do some Foresee Progeny caps for me? I want to see how hatchlings from these two: #6428314 and #879637 would look with Water eyes.

Shadow would be good, too

Take note: Different forms of intimacy. 

I would feel so bad washing this off, holy shit

You could take a bath afterward with the artist and they can wash it off for you so you don’t feel responsible for their work. But also, it could teach the same kind of patience and concept that nothing lasts forever, similarly to the Tibetan Buddhist sand mandala tradition. And it could be just another step in your process of intimacy. Just a thought. 

I want to paint on someone holy shit.

Babe: You’re obligated to do this now. 

man, would love to have the type of friendship with people where we could all sit around topless, babes and dudes, and just paint on each other, and drink a little and laugh a lot

bolding last comment since not everything that looks intimate doesn’t really have to be

You will tell him yourself.

It is too late.

But, doesn’t. Isn’t he supposed to be missing an eye?

I’ll never understand people who don’t drink alcohol

Maybe they know what alcohol can do to people, maybe they fear liver failure, maybe they had a family member or friend that died from an alcohol related accident, maybe they don’t feel the need or desire to drink, it’s really not that hard to comprehend.

Or maybe they’re diabetic and saving their empty calories for dessert. Because chocolate.

Or maybe it just tastes icky to them.

All of the above. 

Or maybe they see how ridiculous some people act when they’re drunk and figure it’s more fun to point and laugh.

Or they know there’s a history of alcoholism in their family and they don’t want to follow that path. People don’t do things for their own reasons, don’t judge them for not doing something you would do.

Men, I know you think it’s funny to snap a towel at a woman’s ass or snap her bra strap. Don’t. Do. It. And don’t tell me “it only hurts a little bit.” The fact that it hurts at all should be enough to tell you not to do it. I don’t care who you are to me: coworker, boyfriend, friend, brother, father, step-whatever. I. Don’t. Care.

{ this is a skill i’ve been using a lot lately, thought i’d share :) }

     {  Distress Tolerance Skill: Coloring Mandalas

PRE-PREP

     1}   go to www.printmandala.com and print a couple of mandalas that you like. (you can also find some on google images.)
     2}   buy set of colored pencils or markers if you don’t have them. more colors = better
     3}   buy a clipboard if you wanna lie in bed and color.
     4}   set these aside and ready to go so they are easily accessible when you are distressed

HOW TO USE DURING DISTRESS

     1}   choose a mandala from your pre-printed stash
     2}   set a timer (phone is good) for 30 minutes
     3}   color it with ur markers or pencils. i prefer pencils.
     4}   optional: play an audiobook or music while coloring. make sure it’s not sad music.
     5}   when timer goes off, stop coloring. ask yourself, what level is my distress right now? if still high, set timer for another 30 minutes and keep coloring. if tolerable, stop coloring and do thing you want to do.
     6}   repeat as needed until distress is tolerable

WHY IT WORKS

     coloring patterns is distracting enough to pull your attention away from negative thoughts/emotions, but mandalas are also repetitive so you can kind of “zone out” while coloring. it feels good being able to create something and you feel a sense of competency or confidence. there’s no competitive aspect to it so you can just do the activity without having to worry about doing it perfect or right or better than anyone else. it can remind you of a simpler time when all that was expected of you was coloring. :) it is easy and almost everyone can do it.

TIPS

    — stick to the timer. even though you want to keep coloring when it goes off, stop once you finish the segment you’re on and put the pencil down. tell yourself you can come back and finish it after you do the thing you’re putting off.

    — you can do this activity without using a timer, especially if you don’t have anything planned for the rest of the day and aren’t using this to distract from a task :)) 

    — practice coloring during times when you’re not distressed, so that when you need to use this skill it will be easier and more “automatic”. i can’t stress this enough. even though coloring is really simple, it’s much better for the activity to feel familiar so that you can easily use it during distress. so if you can practice it during normal times it’ll help u. think of it as homework if you have to — you are building up a memory muscle.

    — if you feel guilty because you’re “wasting time” doing a “childish activity”, remind urself that ur doing this for your mental health, that this is an established skill recommended by top psychotherapists, and that calming down your distress so you can actually *do* the stuff you’re worried about (rather than procrastinating all day about the thing and not actually doing it) is the opposite of wasting time. remember that practicing this skill even when you’re not distressed is HOMEWORK, not optional time wasting thing. also, taking care of ur mental health is not a frivolous activity. it’s very important and crucial to a happy successful life.

I’d like to add that coloring inside the lines neatly and skillfully is something that impresses the fuck out of most artists. Yes, even professional working artists. I have seen artists genuinely lose their shit with admiration when someone could color inside all the lines (sometimes that artist is me). SO if you’re coloring and thinking ‘this is dumb i’m not an artist i bet an artist would laugh at me’ be assured most artists would actually be hooting enviously at you and then asking to borrow your crayons.

This is so cool.
