Welcome Dearies, Sweeties, and Pretties!


(Formerly known as Ships-and-Quips). Book Lover. Seems that it is mostly a Once Upon a time blog and heavy with Belle and Rumplestitlskin.Other random things thrown in. Also like "The Walking Dead", "Breaking Bad", and so many other shows ofcourse. I post gifs etc. I tend to ship impossible couples. Like posting things about my older OTPs from years yonder.

Ask me anything

the-lady-of-reichenbach:

Okay so, I wear sweatshirts like all the time. 

Literally. 

I have about eight different sweatshirts that I re-wear all the time. 

90 degrees outside? Who cares I’m wearing a sweatshirt. 

Snow storm? Pair it with a scarf and gloves and we’re good to go. 

Why am I obsessed with sweatshirts? 

Why not?

They’re so damn comfortable— and all of mine are oversize so hECK YES SWEATSHIRT COZY ALL I HAVE TO DO IS TUCK MY ARMS AND HEAD IN AND BAM I’M A TURTLE

But I swear my family gives me crap all the time for wearing them

they have this idea that I am ashamed with my appearance and that’s why I wear sweatshirts.

No, no. 

No. 

I used to be ashamed of my appearance. 

I used to never leave the house.

And I never wore sweatshirts.

Now, I love myself.

And I love my fluffy sweatshirts. 

I wear them all the time because I want to and because they are comfy. 

My choice of clothing has nothing to do with my self esteem

It’s all about comfort

comfort and an attitude "I don’t give a fuck what I wear— it could be a snuggie and as long as I liked it, I would wear it."

So yes, I’m sorry for the rant— but I just get so tired of having to explain that my love for sweatshirts does not reflect a low self esteem. In fact, my self esteem is higher than it’s ever been.

Just— 

Never let someone tell you that your style of dress reflects what they think it reflects— and certainly don’t let them affect what you wear.

The funny thing about introverts is once they feel comfortable with you, they can be the funniest, most enjoyable people to be around. It’s like a secret they feel comfortable sharing with you. Except, the secret is their personality.

Crying because someone close betrayed me….

Well, at least that’s how it feels.

Just someone close, family…well what can I say? I’ve been missing this person since they moved to another state early this year.

Today I was running around trying to get some paperwork done for this person that they forgot about (from here where I live).

Anyways, someone else today told me about some of the things this family member said about me behind my back.

It is beyond hurt. I really don’t understand why? 

Why? What I did I ever do to you? 

I have so few people that I actually trust and open up to.  And now it’s one less.

I try to be nice and kind, but I try not to be a doormat either.

I feel like I have had to kill a part of myself to survive in this world. I used to be a more caring, trusting, and nice person. But, I’ve had to learn to really remove a lot of that from myself because of things like this.

I can’t be as I truly am because it just hurts too damn much when shit like this happens.

And if I can’t be truly myself around family/friends then what the hell kind of life is it?

I have to pretend to be someone else for my own protection? 

And I already made plans to visit this person next year, now what?

Sorry for the rant, but I hope it helps other see that you guys are not alone when something like this happens from people you care about.

veradune said: Almost Famous is my go to happy movie in terms of being nostalgic, bittersweet and profound. I also love Little Miss Sunshine but it's a wee bit dark/cynical before it gets better. OR THE PRINCESS BRIDE it is the best.

Thanks Veradune,

You know I read the Princess Bride before watching the movie. It made me cry like three times, lol. There’s a little backstory about Fezzik and it was just so sad to me.

its-a-three-batch-problem:

what’s a good thing to watch to make someone feel better?

Yeah, let me know, cuz I need suggestions at this moment as well.

Would anyone like to buy these plush Rumplestiltskin daggers?
I’d like to sell them immediately because I desperately need the money, like, yesterday.
They’re however much you think they are worth, but I was hoping for $15 to $ 20 due to the hand embroidery (that stuff takes forever!).
And little Rumple is also for sale now! :)
Please send me an ask if you’re interested.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
