I'm Rod, Knight of Light and aspiring writer. Welcome to my blog. I post:
And a bunch of other things. Have fun!
The Ruger LCR was the first popular polymer-framed revolver. It’s won praise for its smooth trigger pull, light weight (13.5 ounces for the .38 special version).
By the way, if you’re going to get a revolver with a 2-inch barrel (like the LCR), get it in .38 special, instead of .357 magnum. The magnum needs a longer barrel to accelerate the round properly, and a 2-inch barrel will degrade the magnum’s performance so drastically, I feel it’s not worth the added flash, blast and recoil.
Thank you so much! I added your corrections. I’ll let you know once I put in some images. Did you think the guide was useful? Were there any interesting swords you didn’t know about before? Any swords I missed?
The real problem with books-turned-movies isn’t “omg they didn’t include every single word in the book” it’s “omg they completely overlooked the main theme, threw out any significant allegories, took away all the emotional pull, an turned it into a boring action movie with a love triangle in it”
this is criticism
this is ok
this is good
My favorite BioShock 2 review
i really like hemospectrum flip things, especially Hemostuck were the entire social order is switched; but Kanaya always seems to be stuck in the middle
so one day i was like WHAT IF
YOU TOOK THE HEMOSPECTRUM AND JUST
FLIPPED IT ON ITS SIDE
AND TOOK JADE BLOOD AND JUST
PULLED IT UP
Eridan is at the same level as Aradia here
Feferi is the once-a-generation, lowest-of-the-low mutant; Karkat is the much rarer, only-happened-like-a-handful-of-times-in-history mutant (his blood color is taken as an omen of immense change coming)
because of reasons, Jade bloods are in control (runnin around in the sun and junk)
Kanaya is the Heir Apparent, caretaker of the Mother Grub, head of the Jade Court in the Palace of the Sun (or something like that)
her weapon is a double sided chainsaw staff
she still loves fashion; here, her personal tastes dictate the taste of the court, and by extension influence the current generation
HOLY FUCK THIS IS FUN
i’m gonna draw more of her dresses, and then the other trolls :D
talk street magic to me
drawing power from the metro lines
illusionists busking illegally, shimmering lights disintegrating as they run
plant mages tending tiny rooftop and windowbox gardens
elementary kids learning basic sigils on the playground
wixen taking a while to key into the magic in new cities when they move
alchemists dealing on the side to support their experiments
middleschoolers making friendship talismans and amulets for everyone
numerologists who’ll do your math homework for $5 or divine your fortune for $10
kids mass-texting luck and speed spells when their parties get broken up by the cops
This is beautiful.
Subliminal sigils flashed in the openning miliseconds of horror movie trailer to warn for triggers. You just know when to look away, to plug your ears, to hold your breath.
Craft stores with shitty sigils carved into their bead kit boxes to keep all the beads seperate, but the sigils, being shitty and mass produced, only work on green beads and have a hard time differentiating between green and blue
Yarn sellers who spin wool of their magical golden sheep into everyday cotten yarn to make it stronger and lighter warmer, and fricking WASHABLE
supermarkets that, instead of offering to sell you another candy bar at half off at the register, offer a discount on freshness boosting talismans to place in your fruit bowl or veggie crisper.
Professional spell casters contacted for political events, contracted to bind a canidate’s wrist with those tapes you get from concerts. it will glow or burn when the politician lies, slanders, or attempts to redirect the question.
CONCERTS based in empathy that run for six to eight hours, because whatever energy the band gives to the crowd the crowd can give back one hundred - two - three - five thousand fold. No one wants to stop or go home because everyone is having a good time and happy
frat parties with distress spell instructions etched into the floors and ceilings and doors and window sills, so that if anyone, at anytime, needs help, they need only read out the spell and help will come.
magical familiars that win over the hearts of the non-magical/anti-magic crowd. everyone knows the way to the dissenter’s hearts is through the cuteness gland. its a proven scientifical fact.
Authors of traumatizing books like “A child named It” and anything that ever had the queer character killed off/dealt a terrible end, binding their books with spells of hope and change. You, the reader, can change this story. You, the reader, are powerful and worth having around. You, the reader, are not a passive and helpless entity though it may seem so at first. You, the reader, are the writer of your own life and you are strong so strong, and you can change this.
I want a movie about a little girl, aged like 11-12, going through the stuggles of prepubescent girl life, with her entire inner monologue is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.
Shot of disgruntled adorable little girl.
SLJ: I knew that Susie was a backstabbin’ motherfucker, and if anyone was going to ruin my chances of being Miss Sugar Drop Queen, it was that asshole.
I didn’t know I needed this in my life until now.
This is never not funny
Time to bring this back
THE CHARACTER ON RUMBLE’S BACK MEANS FART
I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH IT HURTS
“A villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.”
Why is this one of the things recommended for me on my dash.
There’s so much wrong with this.
1. The quote is bullshit, and indicative of everything terrible about our society, which constantly puts the pain of the abuser above those they abuse.
2 It also grossly furthers the idea that all victims are potential abusers. Which has real life ramifications, because this is actually something that survivors of child abuse fear and one of the reasons they do not always come forward.
3. Bucky has no goddamn business being in this set. He wasn’t a villain. He actually was a victim.
4. We saw Anakin’s story. We KNOW his story. Cool story, bro, but you still murdered children. You are not now and never shall be a fucking victim, but those babies were, so fuck you and fuck your defenders and especially fuck anyone who would think that you are a goddamn victim.
5. We know Magneto’s story intimately. It has been told often. He was a victim once. And then he decided that Genocide was okay.
6. Fuck Fake White Khan and we do in fact know Real Khan’s story. He did think he was a victim, but no, he was not. He was a complicated and amazing villain that went against the typical type of POC villains that we get - he was brilliant and clever and not just a “thug.” But he was not a victim (no, not even after the neighboring planet went boom.)
7. We know Loki’s story too. It’s one of a whiny spoiled brat who keeps trying to commit genocide.
tldr: Bucky has no business being in this set. The rest of these people are murderous terrible people. They are not victims, though some of them were once.
