When I read this I immediately wanted to shadow you and take notes about your experience so I can use it in a fic about Megamind and Minion setting up their first Evil Lair.
Well…… since you asked, it’s quite the saga. Read more because long!
Thank you! The only time I’ve ever seen forging done, it was 19th-century style in a museum. Looking forward to your next installment.
how come every vampire in vampire stories is a hundred years old tho why cant we get a newbie vampire like
"how long have you been 17"
“about a year and a half actually its kinda trippy”
and it would make the love stories a lot less creepy
Seras Victoria from Hellsing is the character you’re looking for ;D
Jack Fleming, the main character in P. N. Elrod’s Vampire Files series, starts out as a brand new vampire in the first book, completely isolated from others of his kind, and has to learn his powers and limitations by trial and error. He also dies in his late thirties, then ages backward so that he ends up looking like a teenager; when he mentions his military experience, humans don’t believe him.
It doesn’t cost a damn thing.
Sprinkle that shit everywhere.
Studies have shown that being kind to others is one of the most effective ways of increasing your own happiness
In most situations. Kindness to strangers, acquaintances, people who are good to you, sure. Kindness to your abuser, however, can grind down your soul.
In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.”
Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them.
It’s not just the girls who let the boys dominate. There was a survey of elementary school teachers some years ago, in which both male and female teachers denied that they were discriminating against the girls in their classes, and said that they’d be happy to have their classes videotaped. Well, then someone analyzed the resulting videos and observed that it was usually boys who were chosen to answer the most challenging questions, the ones that really help students grow, academically. The teachers admitted that they were consciously doing that, but said they didn’t see it as discrimination against girls. They saw it as protection of girls. Protection of their feelings, you know, in case they got a wrong answer in front of everybody. Boys were presumed to be tougher, thus better able to handle the embarrassment. And so, unconsciously, what these teachers taught was that challenge and risk (and, thus, achievement) are for boys, not girls.
