Thats what happens when you only use 1 goalie for big games and even at friendlies. Franch needs so much experience you can see her getting smaller through out the game.
i agree,, it’s tough when you’re just kind of thrown into the fire like AD has been

oh my gosh I love your list on why to love Jude Duarte. Another thing about the not having had sex before and the way that's respected is that it also isn't being sexualized. As someone who hasn't had sex before even though I'm in my twenties, I've experienced my fair share of people thinking it's "hot" that I haven't had sex and it's kinda gross. It seems to be fading now (thankfully), and I'm not sure if that has with me now interacting with older dudes or if society is progressing past the "innocent virgin" trope. I just love how in the series, despite having sex and having lots of it is considered pretty normal, her not having had that isn't a thing that's looked at as neither strange, childish or hot.
Anyways, just needed to get that off my chest
ffs do people really sexualise that shit?? listen, i can't relate to that reaction because i was never exposed to anything like that but i was in my twenties before i had sex. all people ever did upon learning of my "virginity" was go "😳 oh." and make me feel like shit for not having had what can probably only be described as a very anticlimactic (pun there if you want it) life experience.
in retrospect, this could've just been genuine surprise that i, absolute mantrap that i am, had yet to woo a bedfellow (/s) and therefore i am retroactively flattered. but anyways, my point being, most people either saw my virginity as this huge burden that i was putting on them, or they just thought it was weird that i hadn't had sex by that age.
and it absolutely shocks me to my core that the flip side of the coin is taken to such an extreme as some gross fetishisation (i mean i can believe it, cos how dare we expect to exist without being sexualised, i'm just extremely disappointed).
so i guess this is all to say yes. i 100% agree. i love the TFOTA series for not making virginity a big deal point blank period. and you ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NAILED IT by saying that despite this hypersexualised world that the fae live in, they still somehow manage to not have Opinions about what other people do or don't do with their bodies.
whether it's when Jude legit had her first kiss at 17/18 (which some would consider "late") or that it didn't matter to Cardan how much experience she had or hadn't had by chapter 21 of QON because THAT'S NOT THE POINT OF SEX, the concept of Jude's sexual experiences throughout the series were put forth simply as this:
"here is this life experience that many people who are in love or not in love have, and it is sometimes scary and sometimes vulnerable and often times not quite how you pictured it happening for the first time, but it's one way of connecting with someone in ways that even words can't. and if you don't want to partake in that, here, have a sword."
thank you so much for sharing, nonnie. ilysm 🥺❤️

M too excited or nervous idk but this bug has gotten me too hyper. Like what are the chances!!!!
I have one doubt tho how come clicking on 2nd post gives this count down. If we assume it is a deliberate action, the chances of changing something which has been posted already is idk technically possible or not. Like I really want to eat this candy but m not sure if can give a technical explanation.
Btw is this countdown still there?
Yeah it seems like such a suspicious glitch for multiple reasons:
- the timing being like an hour before DD's bday
- the video is new, so it's not like it accidentally linked to another existing post
- if it was queued up in advance for GG's bday, why would it be set up a full 2 months in advance? That seems excessive
- GG doesn't seem like the type to make a countdown video for his own bday (if it was from the studio it would make more sense)
- we know GG has a history of making a big deal about counting down for someone else's bday
- the pictures are mostly from GG's bday shoot last year which he also used to make a calendar. The calendar just so happened to have sparklers in the August and October photos only:
- someone pointed out here that the video counts down from 4 and uses 20 pictures aka "24" aka someone's bday number.
I just... have so many questions about this still. It doesn't make sense to me how it happened either. Unfortunately I don't have douyin so I can't check it out myself. I'm 99% sure it's gone now, or at least that's the impression I got from other people's reactions when it happened because they were saying things like "I missed it" etc.
I'm very curious to find out more about this too. At the moment I'm going to assume the bug some kind of hack/hoax thing and hope for the best, but like... very curious 👀👀👀

You poke your head out of the kitchen window to ask Jack what he wants to do for dinner and just see him taking this picture...
"Jack?...where....where did you get that Corgi??"
"Is that the Johansons dog!??"
*sigh* "Just take him back before supper."
I love the idea that Jack just steals neighbors' animals for photo ops because that is absolutely something he does jhdskfjahk
"Also where did you get that cat? We already have a cat? Miss Lily is a calico???"
"Yeah but Miss Lily don't like wearin' hats."
"....that still doesn't explain where you got this cat from."
"Listen the shelter was havin a sale today and Miss Lily has been lookin mighty lonely lately-"

✋ a prompt/plot/concept/ anything you refuse to role play
All the obvious ones aside, because I feel it's a bit too easy to say, definitely a lot of instant-ship stuff.
Ellie is canonically a courtesan/entertainer [be it dancing or singing; doesn't necessarily have to be risque], most, if not everyone, knows that. I know the risks that come with RPing such a character, and I honestly expect it to happen sometimes.
Now, from time to time, I seem to get the sweet summer children who seem to believe that by the power of their character's penis that she can magically forget her past traumas and open her heart up to people. *BUZZ* Wrong. That's not how she works. You want to ship with Ellie? Your character has to put in actual effort.
Relationships take effort; building trust takes effort. If you don't wanna put in the effort? Don't waste your time or mine. Friendship is one thing, but relationships are a whole other tier that require a lot more work. But that's something I can write a novel on so I'll stop there.

Hi, im new to the kin community, ive been questioning if im therian and i was wondering if its possible to be therian without having had memories/kin dreams before. ive experienced phantom shifts before but im not sure if that actually means anything yet
Neither memories, nor 'kin dreams, nor any other individual experience is required to be a therian. What matters is that what experiences you do have lead you to feel that you are an animal - whether those experiences be phantom shifts, mental shifts, dreams, memories, instincts, species dysphoria, species euphoria, self-perception, or what have you.

Zhu Li and Varrick were so funny back when you could assume she was getting paid to look after this man child. When the writers tried to convince us that no, she truly loves him, it was an 'are you serious?' moment. That writing room can't figure out how to write a romantic relationship where one character isn't in the shadow of the other.
Yeah. It could've even been almost endearing if it was a thing where Varrick was a jerk to everyone except Zhu Li and she was the only person whose opinion he respected. But he treats her like a maid. A lot of people go through a stage of dating trash men but I'm not really clear on why I'm supposed to be rooting for them.
And you’re so right! Except for Sokka and Suki most atarverse ships do this thing where one person is the sun and the other builds their life around their needs.

how do the centaurs sleep? and how do they stretch after a good sleep?
Ok this is one I’ve been wanting to cover for a while and my cooldown sketches got out of hand, so buckle up and enjoy the picturebook!
The easiest options is exactly what you think, the flop. In a home, thick carpets or tatami-like mats would provide at least some sort of cushion for the horse-half and various sized cushions and pillows to lift and support the top half. And they CAN sleep standing up, like horses, but it does require both a special harness/corset and practice. And it’s not very comfortable for anything deeper than a doze or catnap for most, so it’s mostly reserved for bad situations, naps, or guard duty.
Most common are recliners, or ‘hammocks’. Easy to fold and carry for cultures on the move, or make fancy for the city-folk they are probably the most ubiquitous of centaur furniture. A simple adjustable A-frame supporting some sort of flexible fabric-ish sheet for the top half to lean against and sleep. Usually paired with some sort of large blanket or padding on the ground to lay the horse-half on!
When you don’t have no fancy recliners, your herd will do! The preferred sleeping method of closely bonded herds is to simply rest on your buddies cushy backside! Roaming bands can often form long chains of sleeping centaurs with the unlucky first taur either on guard duty, sleeping sprawled, or with the group’s only hammock.
Mix and match to your character and herd’s personal preference!

Horses are really fragile animals. Is it still a death sentence for a centaur if one of their equine limbs gets hurt? Or can they help it somehow?
Oh god, now I'm thinking of amputees and how those would work
Horses are SUPER fragile, or maybe more like delicately balanced.. but particularly their crazy spindle-legs which centaurs get to deal with! But a big part of why hurt legs are a death sentence for horses has less to do with "It kills them" and more to do with quality of life, which a centaur can get around!
A horse with a broken leg doesn't understand it can't put ANY weight on that leg for an extended period and will attempt to go about their daily life and act normally, which basically guarantees re-injuring the bad leg and a high chance of injuring the other 3 legs as they try to cope with the change in balance and weight distribution. It all leads to a really poor quality of life with almost no chance of truly healing properly. The story of all they did trying to save Barbaro the racehorse is a long sad story that illustrates a lot of the issues even with modern veterinary medicine with trying to deal with a broken leg in horses.
Thankfully with centaurs, They understand the need for healing, are able to manage their own quality of life and have the gear to support themselves in the time it takes for the injury to heal!
Also perfectly good for long term use in the case of aging, amputation, or general disability! Which is common with the front legs and lower backs of centaurs given the unusual stresses caused by their body-plans. They were created with thicker and more robust front legs to cope with the permanent added weight of the torso instead of a horse head, but injury and disability in that area is still very common!
Injuries to the hind are less common and usually less severe, and given the hind legs bear less direct weight than the front they can usually get away with wraps and limping until it gets back to weight-bearing. Something like a rear amputation or ruptured tendon would probably require a custom harness/brace attached to a wheel like these and/or basically a peg leg!

i don't know what snapewives means and i am somewhat afraid to ask?
oh you should be but I am DELIGHTED to ruin your day with this information.
you see, long ago in the Before Times, when livejournals roamed the earth, there was a group of Harry Potter fans who believed that they were married to Severus Snape on the astral plane. yes, really.
I believe some of them formed some sort of quasi-religion around this idea. no, we don’t have time to unpack all that.
some of them also got in fights with each other, because obviously Severus Snape was not some sort of two-timing astral polygamist, which meant that all these other claimants must be sad, deluded weirdos trying to astrally Steal Their Man.
now that you know this, you can never un-know it. you’re welcome

I was playing cards against humanity once, and the black card was "Batman's guilty pleasure is [blank]". The white card I put down was "Child beauty pageants". It didn't win, but it has always stuck with me, and Bruceman as a Pageant Mom is a terrifying thought
It’s the four horsemen of the Gotham School System:
Child Pageant Mom Bruce
Soccer Mom Dick
School Bakesale Jason
Together they make Damian beg Alfred to be homeschooled.

Hi, I wanted to ask about one of your centaur worldbuilding posts. The one about capture-the-flag-wrestling-keep-away game. You mentioned "Using one of your littlest rider cousins". So centaurs have human cousins? Or at least human-appearing. Do you mean that as in literally, i.e., blood related? Or is it more spiritually, like family friends that are essentially family? Additionally, can humans be part of a centaur herd if this is the case?
Tossing these two together since they’re kinda related, thanks for asking I love talking about these guys!
Riders typically have both a centaur and humanoid halves making up an extended family group. The groups consider each other family, raise their children together, often share flocks and homes, and will call each other cousin/uncle/grandmother.
So humans can definitely be part of the centaur herd! But with my Riders in particular the culture is pretty much 50/50 centaur/humanoid.
It probably started with rider/runner pairs raising their families together as a result of their war-time bonds, but as the children are raised together they frequently find ready-made pairs among the other children as they grow up playing rider games together, thus deepening the bonds between the families.
Only so much "horseplay” allowed before the elders are yelling about “Get off their back! You’ll be swaybacked by 30 if you keep that up!”
As prospective warriors get older and closer to joining a war party, if they don’t have a partner already, the best way to find someone you work with well is the games! GoatPull, Racing, and Wrestling are all great informal ways to test out prospective partners and get to know how the other moves and build trust! Even for partnered pairs, they will sometimes switch riders/runners as part of the fun.
Usually if the pair are raised together as siblings their bond will be pretty solid by the time they are grown. For those finding each other as adults there is typically a lot of trust-building and weapons drilling together before they actually face battle together. And even then a few pairs may dissolve after their first battle if on decides they aren’t made for the battlefield. It’s rare but happens, along with the usual death a battlefield entails. If the remaining half chooses to go on as a fighter, they will find a new partner in the same way. Usually with growing up playing games with the whole tribe, everyone knows a few Riders they would get along with reasonably well.
There’s a lot of trust when you’re putting someone on your back with a sword or bow and arrow that you wont end up with those weapons in you instead of the enemy, or if you’re standing and firing from a charging centaur’s back that you wont end up on the ground in the middle of a fight. There’s a LOT of communication, trust, and practice involved in a Rider pair to ensure that the rider doesn’t get tossed by an unexpected maneuver or put a sword in their runner’s shoulder trying to regain balance during the stress of a battle.

your thrift store write up doesn't even account for gentrification and white people going out of their way to enter underprivileged communities of color for clothing, or the corny trend of thin people taking any nice quality plus size item they can find to "upcycle", ive seen both with my own eyes and it seems like you're just ignoring both of these very valid points that poor people have about the mainstream granola ass thrifting community 💁🏽
...so, this is the exact framing I am arguing against, actually.
Because this framing ignores the realities of the secondhand economy, especially the part about the 24/7/365 firehose of new inventory. the overwhelming majority of these items are not scarce. we are not competing for a limited resource. there will be a new truckload tomorrow.
I cannot overstate just how much clothing gets donated in the US every year. Most thrifts turn their entire inventory over every couple of weeks, and often they literally can’t process new inventory fast enough to get it all out on the floor.
(and yes, in the decade or so that I’ve been going to thrift stores on a near-weekly basis, prices have gone up somewhat, overall. You know what else has gone up in price? Fucking everything! Commercial rents are bonkers. Calling it gentrification is blaming the wrong end of the problem — you’re holding individual shoppers responsible for the much larger forces that are keeping wages flat.)
Maybe the thrift stores are very different where you live, but mine are not plagued by wealthy white people arriving from far-off exurbs seeking plunder. Most of the thrifts I frequent are within 15 minutes of my apartment, in the community where I live, which is majority-POC. The people I see shopping there are my neighbors. The people who work there are my neighbors, too, and we support them by shopping at their store.
Also, if that actually is happening — if minivans full of rapacious white soccer moms are driving an hour-plus into neighborhoods that make them nervous, in numbers that actually affect the bottom line of the stores they descend upon — then that would mean that thrift stores in low-income majority-POC neighborhoods are... regularly getting large cash infusions? Which they use to pay their staff (who mostly live in the same community) and support any charities they’re affiliated with? and that’s... bad, I guess?
Are the thrift stores in my area just wildly different from everywhere else? What am I missing here?
Also! I agree that it’s shitty to buy plus-size clothing only to cut it down! I just disagree that this happens with enough frequency to put a dent in the firehose of new inventory. It’s very visible, because the people who do it like to post on social media about it, but that does not actually make it prevalent!
Really starting to feel like all this is an idea of ‘who shops at thrifts’ that’s largely based on the tiny minority of thrifters who constantly post about thrifting on social media.

My (28M) Colleague (26M) i don’t know how to finish this concept i just think Daniil complains about his husband on 1913 Reddit
AITA for trying to destroy my colleague’s hometown?
Hey, r/AITA. Long time lurker, first time poster. I know the title is a little drastic but there’s a lot of context I think I should include, so, buckle up.
My (28m) colleague (26m) and I met eleven days ago when I took what I thought would be a short trip to his hometown. I’m a doctor, and I was here on unrelated business, but suffice to say things got a little crazy when a plague spontaneously broke out (r/AwfulTiming LMAO) and long story short, I’ve been stuck here for a while trying to help out. The aforementioned colleague was born here and we’ve been working alongside each other trying to do some damage control. He’s a really sweet guy, and I thought we were getting along well... but then. Oh, citizens of Reddit, then.
Things got... a little awkward. One of my exes from college (28m) also lives here (I know what are the chances LMAO) and his brother, another college friend (28m) built a really big building that my colleague thinks is the source of the plague. I’m like... at LEAST 99% certain that the TOWN is the source of the plague, and destroying it would forever rid the world of this putrefying scourge and usher humanity into a new and enlightened age of Utopia so. Like. You can see where the trouble is. I know I look like a douchebag for trying to firebomb his childhood home into dust but ultimately I think that it’s what needs to be done, and he’s putting unfair expectations on me here.
TL;DR I think that every living thing is born festering with the seeds of it’s own destruction and only by burning out the disease and ascending beyond the vestigial stage of flesh-bound humanity can we truly progress, and my coworker thinks that the duty of humanity is to each other and that in order to save the town we should destroy this crystalline manifestation of man’s hubris. AITA?

Can a centaur bend down at the waist to pick something up the same way a horse can lower its head? Or do they have to do an awkward stance to reach whatever they dropped?
Oh absolutely! I mean, I think it would depend on the flexibility of the centaur, much like touching your toes - if you haven't trained and stretched for a bit of flexibility they would likely have to bend a knee to get down there.

Your voice is so cute! Also can we get the pattern for the doll
thanks! I drafted the doll pattern myself. I’m happy to share the pattern pieces, although I don’t have a printable pattern for this particular version. I do have this, which I think should give you a good sense of how it’s put together:
Assembly instructions would be a bit more involved, and will have to wait for a day when I’m not deep-cleaning my apartment.
I do have a printable pattern for a smaller doll with jointed legs and pointed ears, but it’s otherwise the same style/proportions/assembly method.
While I’m at it, have the pattern pieces for the bunny/kitty/fox dolls I designed, too:
