Fairies should not have average, dull names that you would hear in any school yard. They need something special, something magical. Here are some of the most fitting fairy names out there:
Nobody ever listens to the safety demonstration. Have you noticed?
It’s a very strange thing to watch, if one is mindful enough. There you sit, in a packed airplane cabin with a hundred, two hundred other people. You’re all about to experience something that the human beings of centuries past couldn’t imagine in their most fantastic fantasies. This winged metal tube, in which you have a window seat, is about to take flight—at dizzying heights and dumbfounding speeds. Some of you aren’t scared. You’ve done this a thousand times before. Others of you are gripping your armrests with sweaty palms, over and over repeating in your mind the widely-spread platitude: you’re more likely to die in a car crash than a plane crash.
It’s true, of course, but not very helpful if your winged metal tube should malfunction.
And why shouldn’t it? The parts are made by humans, the safety checks are completed by humans, the plane is flown by a human, and we humans manage to fuck up a great many things. In fact, given the ineptitude of the average person, and the statistical likelihood that one of these average people is in some way responsible for the safety of your flight…well, it’s nothing short of a modern miracle that the planes don’t all go down.
And still we sit, muttering reassurances...

Your characters deserve names that make sense for them. Names that let your reader know exactly who they are before they even open their mouths to speak. In order to accomplish that, use these gnome names in your next story:
When you’re writing fantasy, the world might be fake, but you want your characters to come across as authentically as possible. That is why you should look through these dwarf names and choose one that fits your character perfectly:
Witches are clever. They are crafty. They are downright captivating. That is why you should consider using these witch names in your fiction — or even for your own bundle of joy.
Maybe you’re playing Dungeons & Dragons. Maybe you’re writing Game Of Thrones fan fiction. Maybe you’re creating a fantasy world of your very own. No matter what your intentions are, here are some fiery dragon names that you should steal:
Give your little girl (or that badass character in the screenplay you’re writing) a name that means ‘warrior’ so she grows up to become one. Here are some of the most fierce (and fabulous) female warrior names:
(March 21st to April 19th)
For an Aries, the summer solstice will be a quiet, calm day. You will feel a higher level of inner peace than you have before, and it will benefit you in several ways. The summer solstice hits your solar fourth house, so it’s a great time to work on self-improvement and stay focused on your own personal needs. Take this time to reflect on the past and make new goals for the future ahead. You have all the power you’ll ever need to make positive changes in your life. So, go for it, Aries.Taurus
(April 20th to May 21st)
For Taurus, it’s not just the summer solstice that’s going to be eventful this year, but the entire month as well. If your birthday falls from April 20 to 23, you have exciting things on the horizon and change is certainly in the air. Your productivity levels are at an all-time high, and you’re spewing with positive vibrations.Gemini
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Gemini will be extremely practical during the summer solstice. It will bring you luck with your finances and career goals that you’ve been working hard towards. The summer solstice will impact Gemini positively, and give you incentive to buckle down and do what will be best for you in the long run. You may disperse your energy in giant heaps rather than spreading it out, so be aware in order to prevent spreading yourself too thin.Cancer
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
Cancer will take the stage during the summer...
Charles Darwin wrote in his 1872 book, The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals that “facial expressions of emotion are universal, not learned differently in each culture.” There have been arguments both in favor and against ever since.
The most notable research into the topic came from psychologist Paul Ekman, who pioneered research into emotion recognition in the 1960s. His team of researchers provided their test subjects with photos of faces showing different emotional expressions. The test subjects then had to define the emotional states they saw in each photo, based on a predetermined list of possible emotions they had seen prior.
Through these studies, Ekman found a high agreement across members of Western and Eastern cultures when it came to selecting emotional labels that corresponded with facial expressions. Expressions he found to be universal included those indicating happiness, disgust, anger, sadness, surprise and fear. Working with his long-time friend Wallace V. Friesen, Ekman found that the findings of the study correlated with Fore tribesmen in Papua New Guinea, whose members could not have learned the meaning of expressions from exposure to media. Instead, they inherently displayed the expressions without ever having been primed for them, leading Ekman and Friesen to determine that they were universal.
From this study, the six basic emotions were proposed.1. Facial Expression/Emotion: Happy
Turning 30 is a big milestone. Turning 31, by comparison, is rather unremarkable. You’re not old. You’re not young. You’re just a person. A person a few hundred days past whatever you were before. Yet there are certain expectations at this age, the most important of which is to get over the immature idea that your birthday matters very much. You’ve done this nearly three dozen times now, the world says, let’s not make such a big deal out of it, OK?
It is funny how much the perception other people have of you changes once you get past 30. I remember talking to a movie producer who was about my age now when I was in my early twenties. He was telling me how there is this arc. When you get successful early, everyone gives you way more credit that you deserve. They marvel at what you’ve managed to do and how mature you seem. But with time, this fades. Because everyone catches up. Your friends graduate from medical school, people in front of them retire and they get promoted, they finally get serious and move out of their parents house. Eventually, the mean evens out. Then you’re just yourself again, not special or better, just you.
So there is a kind of humbling that happens as you get into your thirties and...
People think the purpose of finding a partner is so that you can stop feeling so lonely, but this isn’t the right mindset if you want them to stay. It’s when you’re most independent that you’re able to really put in the effort to maintaining a successful relationship. You have to be able and willing to be alone before being in a partnership, because there will still be times that you are. Your significant other isn’t there to fill a void. They are there to add more when you’re already whole.2. Being the one that puts in more effort
There will always be times when your partner puts more effort into you than you into them, but the opposite is true as well. There will be times when you feel they are distant and you have to put in the work to pull them close again. The point is—you both put in the effort to bring each other back into that equilibrium. You put in half the work and so do they. You can’t have them always chasing you or they’ll get tired and you’ll start seeing them fall behind.3. Being attracted to others without acting on it
Okay, let’s be real. There will always be other people that you find attractive, intelligent, funny, charming—whatever the appeal is, we have to recognize that we can be drawn to others at times when we’re in a relationship. The point is, you have to be able to recognize that it’s just...

For being as strong-willed and heavy headed as they are, Aries have a natural innocence and childlike wonder about them. It’s part of their charm, and it’s their perpetual curiosity that makes them avid thinkers and learners. It’s also what their partners tend to love the most about them: that they are so endlessly interested in things, and that they can at once be so unbelievably intelligent and yet so aloof at times, too.Taurus (April 20-May 20)
A Taurus is a walking anomaly. They are eager to impress people, but even more so desire their friendship and affection. They say they like to be by themselves, but thrive in the company of the people they love most. They try to be content with life as it is, but can’t help but keep dreaming about how they can make things better. You never really know what to expect with a Taurus, and for those close to them, that little bit of unexpectedness loosens up their image of being “perfect,” and makes them all the more lovable.Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Geminis may oscillate between their two “selves,” (or, more commonly, the different aspects of their personalities that they want the world to see). But one thing that really characterizes Geminis no matter what they’re doing is their eagerness to help, and to show up for the people they love. Geminis are always looking for ways to make life better for everyone around them, even if it means...
