Recently Kaige told us he wishes he could be both a boy and a girl because he likes playing princesses as much as ninjas and he doesn’t want to get made fun of. So we bought him a tutu and gave him a makeover. Meet the new and improved Kaige. If you have a problem with it please keep it to yourself and kindly stay out of his life. Which would be a shame because as you can see he’s freakin’ awesome! #letmebeme #mumblr #stopbullying

This ended up longer than I thought it would be… and turned into a oneshot.. which is why it’s late. I hope you like it!

Summary:

The one where after CA:TWS the Soldier is still loyal to HYDRA but everything he does is for Steve.

think about these things when you’re making a fictional place; even a developed city has its roots in how easy it was to settle in the first place!

If you missed Emily Diana Ruth & Charlie McDonnell’s mini-film festival at VidCon, INTERMIX, you missed this adorable and articulate short film. Watch Irene Lee, Girl Detective right now.

Check out this awesome live action 5 part YouTube series by Ray William Johnson called “Riley Rewind”.

If you like Doctor Who or just time travel I think you will find this pretty interesting and cool.

I’m sorry to everyone still waiting for their prompts. I am working on them right now. Last week and the week before I’ve been swamped at work and then family drama happened at home which… is never pleasant. It’s been frustrating not being able to write as much as I want to but hopefully things look up this week :)

"You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it."

Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

If this is not the perfect distillation of what it means to be a political artist, a conscious artist, a counter-culture artist, an agent of change, then I do not know what is. Anger is so often shunned because we are either scared or made to feel ashamed of it, or led to believe it is illegal. It is not. Anger is a fundamental, universal human right. Anger is powerful, anger is beautiful, anger is real. As Dr. Angelou says, it is bitterness that is dangerous, it is bitterness that leads to cynicism and wrath. Anger is altogether something different. It is a shout against injustice, it is an expression of courage. It is, when couched within civility, the greatest agent of change in human history. It is our voices at their most naked and honest.

Live it.

Hey all!
The Weasleys have been quite under-appreciated in many fanfics, their relationship with Harry is often bashed pretty terribly.
Some of us, however, adore the Weasleys and would love to see more of that adoration goin’ around. That’s why youlighttheskyfanfiction and I would like to invite you all to join us on a Weasley Appreciation Week that takes place on week 33, starting from 11th of August until the 17th.
During this week all you’d need to do is post a Weasley & Harry themed fic (oneshot or a longer one) and send me the link so we can promo it and share with everyone else! The tag we’ll be using for this is #weasleyappreciation on tumblr, and if you’ll post your fic on AO3 we’ll have your fic added to the Weasley Appreciation Collection.
Let’s celebrate the Weasleys and their relationship with Harry!
Whether you go gen or with a ship is completely up to you, we will love it all <3

RULES:
The fic must be centered around Harry and the Weasleys.
No Weasley bashing or Harry bashing.

Writing Traumatic Injuries References

historicallyaccuratesteve:

alatar-and-pallando:

So, pretty frequently writers screw up when they write about injuries. People are clonked over the head, pass out for hours, and wake up with just a headache… Eragon breaks his wrist and it’s just fine within days… Wounds heal with nary a scar, ever…

I’m aiming to fix that.

Here are over 100 links covering just about every facet of traumatic injuries (physical, psychological, long-term), focusing mainly on burns, concussions, fractures, and lacerations. Now you can beat up your characters properly!

General resources

WebMD

Mayo Clinic first aid

Mayo Clinic diseases

First Aid

PubMed: The source for biomedical literature

Diagrams: Veins (towards heart), arteries (away from heart) bones, nervous system, brain

 

Burns

General overview: Includes degrees

Burn severity: Including how to estimate body area affected

Burn treatment: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degrees

Smoke inhalation

Smoke inhalation treatment

Chemical burns

Hot tar burns

Sunburns

 

Incisions and Lacerations

Essentials of skin laceration repair (including stitching techniques)

When to stitch (Journal article—Doctors apparently usually go by experience on this)

More about when to stitch (Simple guide for moms)

Basic wound treatment

Incision vs. laceration: Most of the time (including in medical literature) they’re used synonymously, but eh.

Types of lacerations: Page has links to some particularly graphic images—beware!

How to stop bleeding: 1, 2, 3

Puncture wounds: Including a bit about what sort of wounds are most likely to become infected

More about puncture wounds

Wound assessment: A huge amount of information, including what the color of the flesh indicates, different kinds of things that ooze from a wound, and so much more.

Home treatment of gunshot wound, also basics
More about gunshot wounds, including medical procedures

Tourniquet use: Controversy around it, latest research

Location pain chart: Originally intended for tattoo pain, but pretty accurate for cuts

General note: Deeper=more serious. Elevate wounded limb so that gravity draws blood towards heart. Scalp wounds also bleed a lot but tend to be superficial. If it’s dirty, risk infection. If it hits the digestive system and you don’t die immediately, infection’ll probably kill you. Don’t forget the possibility of tetanus! If a wound is positioned such that movement would cause the wound to gape open (i.e. horizontally across the knee) it’s harder to keep it closed and may take longer for it to heal.

 

Broken bones

Types of fractures

Setting a broken bone when no doctor is available

Healing time of common fractures

Broken wrists

Broken ankles/feet

Fractured vertebrae: Neck (1, 2), back

Types of casts

Splints

Fracture complications

Broken noses

Broken digits: Fingers and toes

General notes: If it’s a compound fracture (bone poking through) good luck fixing it on your own. If the bone is in multiple pieces, surgery is necessary to fix it—probably can’t reduce (“set”) it from the outside. Older people heal more slowly. It’s possible for bones to “heal” crooked and cause long-term problems and joint pain. Consider damage to nearby nerves, muscle, and blood vessels.

 

Concussions

General overview

Types of concussions 1, 2

Concussion complications

Mild Brain Injuries: The next step up from most severe type of concussion, Grade 3

Post-concussion syndrome

Second impact syndrome: When a second blow delivered before recovering from the initial concussion has catastrophic effects. Apparently rare.

Recovering from a concussion

Symptoms: Scroll about halfway down the page for the most severe symptoms

Whiplash

General notes: If you pass out, even for a few seconds, it’s serious. If you have multiple concussions over a lifetime, they will be progressively more serious. Symptoms can linger for a long time.




Character reaction:

Shock (general)

Physical shock: 1, 2

Fight-or-flight response: 1, 2

Long-term emotional trauma: 1 (Includes symptoms), 2

First aid for emotional trauma

Poisons: Why inducing vomiting is a bad idea

Poisonous plants

Dislocations: Symptoms 1, 2; treatment. General notes: Repeated dislocations of same joint may lead to permanent tissue damage and may cause or be symptomatic of weakened ligaments.

subtle-queen:

Imagine after Bucky joins the Avengers the guys are telling him about all the missions they’ve gone on and they’re casually mentioning all the times Steve’s almost killed himself and Bucky keeps glaring at him like,

"you jumped out of a plane? With no parachute?”

"you crashed your plane in the middle of the ocean?”

"you were going to fight a GOD?!"

and the rest of the avengers just have to sit there listening to Bucky shouting at Steve, for like an hour.

Sherlock/John Drabble - Watson and Redbeard (Piratelock)

This is for lockjohn-up-in-221b who wanted piratelock. I hope you like it!

  • Sherlock/John – Watson and Redbeard

“Now remember, we want to round up all the ladies on the ship and murder the men. Take any valuables you can find. Jewels, gold, silver…” Captain Wilkes narrows his eyes at his first mate. God knows why he ever let a man like Sherlock Holmes be his first mate in the first place. Sorcery likely. But Holmes has his uses and Wilkes hates that he needs him.

The rest of the crew save for Anderson’s mistress Donovan, who he indulges as a lady pirate for Anderson’s sake, are listening raptly to his every word but Holmes I leaning against the wall, arms crossed, throwing darts at the little skull on the mantelpiece.

“Are you listening, Holmes?” Wilkes snaps.

Aw thank you so much for the prompts!! I chose teacher/student AU. I hope you like it! Sorry it’s late <3

-       Sherlock/John – Chalk for Skulls

“So you must be the new bloke,” a woman says behind him.

John tenses, tries not to think of watchout-behindyou-gun-shoot before he forces himself to smile. He’s not sure if he even knows how to anymore. Harry says he looks like he’s walking on broken glass, trying to smile in the pain.

There’s a very pretty woman behind him with curly brown hair and cinnamon skin. Her hand is outstretched to him and John stares at it for a moment before leaning on his cane and shaking it.

“Yeah, I’m the new teacher. English literature if you wouldn’t believe.”

“Really?” she replies, “Weren’t you ex-military? A doctor or something?”

Thank you so much for the prompt!! HUGS. Sorry it’s late! I have no real knowledge of either sport but I hope you like what I wrote anyways : )

  • Sherlock/John - Lifts in Red

Note: I have no knowledge of leg breaks or leg injuries or anything medical related. This is completely made-up and I don’t know if it could actually happen or not

“Your leg’s going to heal but you won’t be able to play hockey again. The bone fracture was too serious. You’ll have a limp and severe, possibly chronic, pain from now on,” Doctor Thompson tells him and John just stares at the medical chart on the wall. Eat healthy kids and you’ll avoid heart disease! Drink milk and grow strong bones! Funny. John loves milk. Especially with his biscuits.

(Didn’t help him much.)

“It’s alright dear,” Mum tells him later in the car, “at least you’re alright.”

John doesn’t let the stinging warmth behind his eyes leave until he’s up in his room.
