“Don’t look at me like that! Say something, please!”
“I just found out my best friend and love of my life isn’t human and you’re criticizing me for being shocked?! What do you want me to say; ‘That’s nice honey, what do you want for dinner, pizza or tacos?”
I hope you're doing alright, beautiful. I know you said work and life was crazy, but I miss seeing your name pop up on my phone. I might have notifications on for you... Anyways, I'm just popping by to say hi and to remind you that I love you and think you're an incredible person and fantastic writer! I'll wait patiently for you as long as you need. <3 <3 <3
My love, I was deeply moved by this message. To feel loved by someone as incredible as you is a true blessing. My life has been crazy and demanding, but what has been scaring me the most is the fact that I think about writing and feel…empty. For two-three weeks now, maybe even longer. Like something is gone and I’m futilely trying to hold on to sand escaping between my fingers. So I’m working, walking, hiking, sleeping, reading, watching series and movies, breathing, thinking - in the hopes that it will come back to me. But what terrifies me the most is the fact that the last time I felt like this, it took me ten years to come back to writing.
Meanwhile you’re shining and being creative as hell, so I’ll be here to read you and support you! <3
Claudio??? Cuban partially deaf child they adopted. Named after abuela Claudia.
( @hamiltonhistory ) has a really awesome name for a child they get from a surrogate mother, Namaste. Let’s just say usnavi lost this fight. I accept this au/headcanon so hard. I love it. I like to think this one as a girl. But that’s me.
Nameless refugee twins, idk I see them as activists and I want them to have a big soft, crazy fam. I got no names for these two and no idea what any of the kids look like for now.
Should I name this au? Are you guys interested? I honestly haven’t fleshed this out enough but if ya’ll like it I will give it a go.
I looked cute af tonight. But I still get really uncomfortable when people come up and randomly compliment me on my looks. Like skin crawling fidgety uncomfortable. That happened a lot tonight and I didn’t handle it well 😔😔😔i’m hopeless.
I really need to get friends like Isak and Sana, THEIR CHATS ARE SO FUNNY PLEASE. I LAUGHED SO HARD WHEN I READ ISAK ANSWERING WITH “livin la vida loca” WHEN SANA ASKS HIM ABOUT HIM AND EVEN!!!! OMG… AND THEN SANA SAYING “hasta manjana” and Isak answering “YOU CAN’T RUN AWAY FROM THE INTERNET GUUURRL”
I really can’t believe this show. I fucking love it.
food for thought: an iphone lockscreen with pocket-sized bangtan peeking in from the edges of your screen saying "hi!! we are bangtan!" because that would be so cute n i love your pocket-sized editions
holy shi i would love to draw that…maybe i should do that for their anniversary because idk what else to draw :/
what’s mine is yours sounds like this cute thing that a couple would say to each other all the time when they’re super in love. so i think this is about shawn and his girlfriend (henley? i like that name for some reason idk) who have maybe been best friends since early childhood and have been dating for years now. they’ve never known a life outside of each other, hence “what’s mine is yours.”
but then shawn’s marketing team (is that a thing idk let’s make it a thing) want shawn to hide his relationship bc being an attainable, single, boy-next-door would bring up sales. and shawn and henley would get into this big fight about it, and it would end with them breaking up.
except their “single, attainable” plan doesn’t quite work out bc shawn is DEVASTATED. and so is henley, but she returns back to her hometown and wallows her way through the rest of a lonely summer while he’s out on tour. she sends back the sweatshirt her left on her dresser bc she can’t bear to look at it.
but then one night at like 2 a.m. she gets a call from shawn, and she picks up despite herself, and he’s legitimately angry but can’t put it into words. he asks why she returned the sweatshirt, and she’s like, “what do you want me to do with it?”
and he struggles and stutters for a while, but eventually he lands on saying, “what’s mine is yours. always.”
and she knows that he means they’ll always love each other, even if that’s what tore them apart in the first place. but she’d lie to herself and take the easy way out and hang up on him.
throughout the rest of the story, henley would keep finding shawn in everything: she’d see his face on tabloid magazine covers, she’d hear his songs on the radio (which progressively grow sadder and sadder), other girls in the hallway would gush about him. and shawn would slowly start to move on, and she’d hear about a new girlfriend, and maybe she’d cry bc she doesn’t know how to adjust to a life where they don’t share everything anymore.
and maybe she’d show up unexpectedly at one of his shows and try to talk things out, now that she’s realized. but would it be too late?
They’re based on Baron Milk Chocolate PB&Js. Got the idea from this weirdly detailed candy blog I stumbled across. Basically I was after something a little unusual for Stiles to send Derek, and that was a flavor combination I’d never thought of in reference to candy before. The site says it’s a Polish candy, but I think the reviewer bought it in the US, and idk much beyond that, tbh. I just thought it was a cool idea and put it in the fic.
Anyway, thanks for the question! I think it’s cool to get an actual Polish person’s POV on the fic. :)
Ahhh. See, my intention was to try to express that from what I’ve seen in the community, the feeling is that Kathleen Kennedy is trying to push the model minority myth. But, yes, I was worried I had steamrollered it in my attempt to be concise.
And yeah, the general colorism. Do you have a particular suggestion for a wording?
yeah no i got the general gist of what were you trying to say but the implication that casting kelly was like… ‘not good enough’ in a way is kinda.. you know. how many vietnamese (or just se asian) actors do you see in leading roles in big-budget films like star wars after all
i do agree that star wars + hollywood in general has a problem re: dark-skinned poc (esp woc) but like. with regards to wording and using the casting of woc as a reason why kathleen is the human version of a garbage dump? maybe focus more on kathleen herself and her refusal to cast dark-skinned woc instead of talking about how east asians are supposedly “white approximate” bc by saying that white people see us as similar to them you sort of say that the model minority myth is actually real and that we therefore have more privilege which is just… untrue
it’s like ye colorism is a real system of privilege/oppression and the lack of dark-skinned woc who have tested for star wars proves that but east asians are not more privileged than other minorities solely for being east asian
