I WANT THE DRAGON ONES AND THE FROG ONE ANC THE WING JUST GIMME ALL OF EM
Gregorius Anglus Salgwit, alias Von Welling: “Opus Mago-Cabalisticum”. Frankfurt, 1719
A diagram of the world according Ptolemy, dividing it into 5 zones:
“A and B are the primordial elements: fire (esh) and water (mayim). C is the zone of the stars, D is the air region where the two elements mash into the «schamayin», the fiery spiritual water that pours as dew into all things (E). F is the virgin earth, and finally, G is the underground air and the red fiery core.” (Alexander Roob, Alquimia & Misticismo pg 47, Köln, 2006.)

Japan > Everywhere else
This is Japan in a nutshell. Forget all the crazy stuff with the weird tv programs and the cosplaying—that’s just the outer shell that gets attention because it’s unusual. This, this is the beauty of the country. I’ve had little grandmothers chase me down because I dropped my shinkansen tickets. In amusement parks, the attendants do their upmost to get lost items (usually cardigans or kids’ shoes) back to the owners—before the owners even realize they’d lost said item(s). I’ve had complete strangers not only give my thorough directions but have offered to drive me to the place I needed to go.
It is so, so, so hard to go back to the States after you get the J-treatment. I mean, Japan has its downside (“What is this madness you call pizza???”), but the general attitudes of everyone—even the so-called hardcore yankees (two of whom who, on a blazing summer day, helped me find one of my schools when I was heinously lost in the labyrinth that is the neighborhood in which said school is located)—is the epitome of the mindset that I wish everyone would adopt. Because yelling at people gets you nowhere. And being able to empathize with people kinda helps make this country a really nice place to live in.
Reblogging again for THIS ↑↑↑↑
THIS IS THE MOST ACCURATE POST I’VE SEEN ON TUMBLR
I don’t know if anyone has ever done this before but, here ya go… The Different Types of Fanfiction!
I probably left a few out, but these are the most common, compared to their base fiction’s canon plot. Enjoy! XD
The crack fic is enough for a reblog.
My favorite part is when authors write these themselves, and then you have a big, shiny, convoluted map that’s all canon.
I think a lot more schools need to address this, teachers can be bullies also but rarely get caught out because it’s adults word over a child’s word.
third grade was hell because everyone thought i was exaggerating
In sixth grade, I had a teacher scream at me several times a week for being diabetic. The principal didn’t believe me.
My first grade teacher used to shake me and call me stupid, or worse, because I learned to read without her help and, some times, corrected her. No one ever listened, but I got rid of her when she left a mark on my arm for grabbing me with too much strenght.
She wasn’t fired. I changed to another school.
