Cunt again? It was odd how men… used that word to demean women when it was the only part of a woman they valued.

—George R. R. Martin, A Dance With Dragons (via bookaddictiion)

"Improve yourself. Keep changing. And never stop.”

Diphylleia grayi also known as the skeleton flower’ has petals that turn transparent with the rain. Diphylleia grayi is native to moist wooded mountainsides in colder regions of China and Japan, where you’ll find the large fuzzy green, umbrella-like, bold foliage topped by small clusters of white, may apple-like flowers in late spring.

Realism in writing is good and all but what I really want to do is make them fall in love and fix all of their problems. So I will.

the books which kuroko reads

jiyuuhonpou:

I don’t think anyone’s translated the tweet that lists all the books we see Kuroko reading in canon, so here you go:

  • スロウハイツの神様』 辻村深月 (Slow Heights no kamisama by Mizuki Tsujimura)
  • 凍りのくじら』 辻村深月 (Koori no kujira by Mizuki Tsujimura)
  • 『うたかた』 吉本ばなな (Utakata by Banana Yoshimoto)
  • 走れメロス』 太宰治 (Run, Melos! by Osamu Dazai)
  • 細雪』 谷崎潤一郎 (The Makioka Sisters by Junichiro Tanizaki)
  • 『こゝろ』 夏目漱石 (Kokoro by Soseki Natsume)
  • それから』 夏目漱石 (And Then by Soseki Natsume)
  • 『ニーチェ詩集』 フリードリヒ・ニーチェ (Nietzsche poetry anthology by Friedrich Nietzsche) - Kuroko reads this in the Akamaru Jump one-shot

Run, Melos! wasn’t listed in the tweet for some reason. Also, I can’t find the exact panels where Kuroko is seen reading Utakata or Kokoro but I’ll update this post when I do.

I don’t think Utakata or Mizuki Tsujimura’s works are available in English, but Kuroko’s taste in books is very… Philosophical? Literary?? Although I get more of a pop-literature vibe from Mizuki Tsujimura since she writes mystery novels…

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

utism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Roadtrip AU in which everyone knows Derek sucks at taking pictures except accidentally he kinda doesn’t and also their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and they have to wait for it to get repaired, because I need more practice with everything and to learn to put up more stuff?
