(she says as if she knows what she's talking about)

anonymous asked:

So how long do you think Jon was out? And how long was Dany waiting for him in his cabin! I'm curious to know your thoughts!

I’m gonna say Jon was out for 3 days. 

Dany waited for him the entire time. She only left to change out of those thick furs. She even takes her meals in his room. She sits by his bed the entire time and no one can talk her out of it even though they feel there are important things to discuss in light of what she saw beyond The Wall. 

But she doesn’t cry. Not even a little bit. Not even about Viserion. Because she’s being strong for Jon. That’s why when he opens his eyes we see her immediately well up right afterward. Because she’s just so relieved that he’s alive and she also trusts him enough to be herself and show her emotions. 

So basically the floodgates open and she allows herself to feel the gravity of what happened, and that’s why she tells him that now, no matter what, she’s going to help him fight. 

Idk it’s just so important to me that she waited by his bedside and even more important to me that Jon KNOWS that. The first thing Jon sees when he comes to is Dany’s face. So like, imagine what a sign of affection and devotion that is. Not only did she drop everything and come to his rescue, losing one of her children in the process, but she spends the next few days sitting there watching him, willing him to be alright. 

I just really love that Jon knows that. That he didn’t wake up and have someone go fetch Dany and tell her the good news. He woke up to her there. So even though she was trying to be reserved toward the end of their conversation, even though she was overwhelmed and pulled away from him, I think Jon knows that she loves him :’) He has to.

Joining the bandwagon. Completely in love with my best friend/crush and have been for 2 yrs. I've never got on with anybody so well and (cheesy) everything is so right about her and when I'm with her. Finally came out to her a couple of months ago and she was fab about it. Basically want to know how she feels about me even though nobody is 100% sure on her sexuality (but we all think she's bi) but without directly asking her or saying how I feel about her...lol

I think there’s no way to know it without straight asking and I also think that you should say everything to her. What are you afraid of? She would probably react normally and she is your best friend and won’t stop talking to you anyway. Just take all your courage and do it!

anonymous asked:

not really an ask, but just a rant i guess. my friend told me two nights ago that my best friend rants to her about me because i constantly say "i want a boyfriend" but then talk about a girl and say "im so gay" or something but never talking about wanting a girlfriend. im really upset she said this, and although i know i dont have to prove my bisexuality to anyone, it just really makes me annoyed yknow

How the fuck does she think she has any right to get annoyed at how you experience and present your sexuality and love life? jjkgfnkdsgnkgds I’m so angry right now on your behalf. That’s so biphobic, like… you can talk about wanting a boyfriend and be bi. You can not talk about wanting a girlfriend and be bi. What an idiot that friend is.

Tbh…. I would either talk to that person about biphobia and how not to be an asshole to bisexual friends…. or find other friends. Like… you don’t need a “best friend” who rants about your sexuality behind your back. What a coward even that she doesn’t say it to your face.

Good on that other friend tho that she told you because shit like that needs to be called out!

The Want: To be Heard

“Let me ask a question, please.”
The man gestures for her to continue.

“Go ahead.”

Okay, this is it. The moment she’s been waiting for, the Man sitting across from her listening and ready to hear what she has to say. She opens her mouth with hope on her tongue,“I really feel tha-”
“You know, you should wear makeup. A pretty face is easier to talk to.”


And this is the want. Women ask permission to disturb silence made by men, while men take the silence that wasn’t there to begin with.

So, as long as there are men who care about a woman’s looks more than what comes out of her mouth, or who would first hear another man speak before a woman had a chance, there is reason to continue fighting, continue thriving, continue living, so that voice would be heard.

NAME: Glacia

AGE: Kid

HERO LEVEL: 4

CHARACTER BIO: Super sweet trans girl but don’t try to fool her just because she’s a kid she KNOWS what you’re really saying/talking about she’s just super smart?

ATTACKS: she’s by far the fastest and usually leaves fights but likes making a baseball bat and hitting you with it  

WEAKNESSES: She really doesn’t like fire and if she gets to overwhelmed she panics and freezes up ( lol )

FUN FACT: Kinda scared of Hall ( NOT REALLY A FUN FACT LOL )

anonymous asked:

I need your advice! I met my girlfriend a year ago and we were friends before we got together almost 6 months ago and she means so much to me but lately ive been thinking that we were better off just being friends idk it just seems like we're drifting apart and it makes me really sad but I don't want to lose her bc I don't even want to imagine my life without her and I know I need to talk to her about this but I don't know how to start that conversation so any help is appreciated lol

ooh this is definitely a tricky thing to bring up, especially because you don’t want to lose her. but at the end of the day you have to be honest. you might want to ask her how she feels about the relationship, because if you start off saying you want to be just friends and she’s balls-deep invested, then she’d get offended and probably resent it. tell her how you feel, tell her what you told me. the conversation can even start off with “i’m not feeling great could i open up to you?” because if you open with the “we need to talk” or something of the sort, their mind automatically goes to the worst and they’ll panic. if you try to make your feelings and sadness the forefront of the discussion, she’ll be more understanding. make sure you have points to back up what you want to say – so if she asks how you guys are drifting apart then you can provide an example

i really wish you the best and hope you’re able to talk to her. it’s very brave of you to do this, i know a lot of people will settle in relationships because they’re afraid of the unknown, but it’s only fair for you to be able to open up to her and express your emotions!

uhhhh anyways mary’s the only character i can draw and i love her

My experience with the signs in my life

  • Gemini female: so strong and independent. Her hair is always on point, so is her outfit. Either very tall or very short. They talk a lot and they love listening to you. Geminis are actually very lovable people. Best companion for a boring class or for lunch break.
  • Gemini male: very bold and confident about himself. Does his own thing. It's not that he is a dick, it's just that he has his own problems to take care of. Except Trump, Trumps is really a dick. Im sorry Geminis that he is in your sign. The cool guy of the class who has a different girl every week. A lil fuckboy but fun to have a chat with. Loves videogames and perfect pal to get drunk with.
  • Cancer female: not a crybaby. Actually HATES to cry in public. More often than you think, very extroverted. Very passionate about what she loves. High ambitions, starts many things and then get bored. So many puns oh god.
  • Cancer male: oh boy. "Nightmare dressed as a daydream". Makes you feel so special. Boyfriend material. Usually dark hair and dark eyes. Not very tall. Adorable. Special laugh. Will do great things in life. Very creative but kinda introvert(?) WILL RATHER DIE THAN CRY IN PUBLIC.
  • Leo female: very close about her private things but she will open up if you demonstrate her she can trust you. Loves everyone. Not that confident about herself. Very confident about the world, tho. Wants to move someplace else and experience. People respect her.
  • Leo male: Stonehead™. Literally smokes all the time to forget about the pain he feels. Hides emotions and then explodes, usually with rage. Either very close to you that he calls you every day, or he'll completely ignore you. Smart even tho it doesn't look like. The lonely wolf.
  • Virgo female: so stubborn and independent. She knows what she wants and she'll get it. Can get very clingy to the people she loves but sometimes neglect other people she loves even tho she doesn't notice. Get mad easily for the little things. The queen. Just listen to her, she knows the shit.
  • Virgo male: cute but doesn't have his own personality. Sometimes gets involved in ugly companies and does things he doesn't want to. Very sensitive but tries to hide it. Actually cares about you even tho he wants to appear a tough boy. Pretends he doesn't care about school, ends up with all A. Probably very good at soccer.
  • Libra female: becomes part of your family if she isn't already. Amazing lipsticks. Always has great stories to tell. Lives in the clouds. Forgets about things easily but won't forget the important things. Has so many passions but get easily distracted when she is studying for an exam. Perfect person to binge watch Sherlock with.
  • Libra male: my everything. Pretends he's a gryffindor but deep down is a slytherin. Stunning. Gets high grade without doing shit. The teacher favorite. The one you can do stupid shit with. Will do anything for you. Listens to you 24/7. Loves tv shows. Very smart. Will probably end up doing something very important. Perfect dad.
  • Scorpio female: actually very sweet and caring, as much as cancer. Never shows off her emotions but you'll know when she cares about you. She's like a mama bear. She'll call you if she feels you are not happy. She'll call you constantly. Extroverted and kind. Best presents ever. Looks naive but very cautious.
  • Scorpio male: ok so my ex fwb was a scorpio and i gotta say they get emotionally attached. Pretend they don't care AT ALL and then calls u at 2 in the morning telling u they love you. Just be careful cause they don't know what they want. Obsessed with electronic things and sex.
  • Sagittarius female: literally on fire. SHE. TALKS. SO. MUCH. I have so many different feelings about her. Either i love completely or I can't stand her. She pretends she knows everything. She's so slow at doing everything, except talking. Laughs a lot. Very sensitive deep down. So loud.
  • Sagittarius male: Pretty introverted. The fire is hidden. He's a freaking badass. If he cares about you, he will show you. Most likely to call you at midnight for your birthday. Very sweet. Goes big or goes home, especially in love. Both a cinnamon and a sinnamon roll. Like if he ain't in the same political party as you, just don't mention politics. That's when the fire shows.
  • Capricorn female: so. she actually cares about you. but she has so much shit going on so she might forget to come at a place you invited her, she won't even apologize but when something happens to you, be sure she'll call. She's absolutely cute and she has been hurt so many times so it's hard for her to trust people completely.
  • Capricorn male: THE FUCKING FANBOY. He loves to travel and to try new things. He is so shy but with his friends he's crazy. Laughs at his own jokes. Extremely sensitive and when he loves, he loves hard. So intelligent and interesting. Absolutely adorable.
  • Aquarius female: the sweetest. she gets clingy to everyone but because she wants to have friends and do things and has a lot of problems but holds everything in and puts her friends first and she's hurt. The most precious human. She needs, she deserves to be loved the most. Learns very quickly and she's very honest.
  • Aquarius male: the devil™. Actually he is funny, like so many jokes, but sometimes it's just too much. He hates when people offend him. Gets on the defensive. Kinda selfish and cares a lot about like 3 people (?). Like he will kill for them. So much drama, boy. Probably failed history and algebra 2 twice.
  • Pisces female: such a badass and a cutiepie at the same time i don't even know how this is possible. she has such a strong personality and loves her friends. Determined and will fight with her teeth for what she loves. You need to have a pisces in your life. She always says she will kill a person but then she just like run away.
  • Pisces male: like just like the pisces female. Cares so much about his family and shows his emotions easily, whether is anger or sadness or happiness. Determined but also insecure about himself, but will do great things.

what she says: I’m fine

what she means: Bandstand was the most underrated show of this season because not only is nobody out of the Broadway community talking about it but nobody in it is either? It had some of the best choreography I’ve seen in literal years (and it won best choreo but still) and the music was beautiful? The characters were all complex and fantastic and it covered mature subject matter without shoving its message down your throat. The accurate various depictions of PTSD and it’s effects were subtle yet obvious and the staging and lighting were INCREDIBLE touches. Also it is an extremely needed tribute to our WW2 veterans that is being completely overlooked? The music was jazzy and fun but emotional? The actors are so talented and play instruments on stage and are impeccable at them? Like? Why? Does? Nobody? Talk? About? Bandstand?

You can absolutely expect more Taylor Swift music,“ he dished. "But, you know what, one of the things we always do with Taylor is she is the broadcaster. When she is ready to tell her fans when she’s coming back, she will do it.”

He continued, “We have a rule and a saying at the label: The first rule of the Taylor Club is don’t talk about Taylor Club.

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: Don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “You’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are — you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say, “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.

Unfortunate Event

Y/N waits anxiously for her date to come. Blind date is never her thing until her colleague said it’s about time she stops being too attached to her work and starts going out there. Nervously she texts her friend about her date’s whereabouts. Getting stood up doesn’t seem to be an option for her since she was basically forced to attend this blind date. All she wants is for this date to be smooth so she can go back home and watch The Bachelorette reruns.

It’s already an hour after their supposed meeting time and her date shows no sign of coming. Disappointed, she lets out a heavy sigh and cues the waiter to hand her the menu. She might not have a good date but at least she’d have some good meal.

“A table for one, then, Miss?” the waiter asks, trying to hide his sympathy.

“Seems so,” she mumbles lightly, “What if he walked in, saw me, and left? Oh, God… I’m gonna kill Mary.”

Not knowing what to answer, the waiter proceeds to wrap the fancy dining utensils which her date should be using by now. The sound of the plates clanking against each other had several people looking at her way with pitiful expressions and she just wants to bury herself. She leans in her chair to avoid the gazes and angrily texts her friend. She must’ve been so caught up in the state of her inner wrath that she doesn’t realize a tap on her shoulder.

“Ahem.”

“Yeah, sorry, yeah?” she still looks at her phone, not really paying attention to the person who is talking to her.

“You seem very… distraught. Mind if I sit here?”

She goes silent for a while, trying to put together the new scene in front of her. There, stands the Harry Styles in an undeniably attractive fashion choice. His hair is styled with a little quiff and the look is final with a friendly smile upon his face.

“Wait, what?”

Harry snorts seeing her genuine reaction, “Mind if I sit by the empty seat?”

She shakes her head, confusion still written on her face as Harry sits and motions the waiter to pour him some wine.

“What’re you looking at?” he asks since she has been staring at him the whole time.

She blinks away her own disbelief and opens her mouth slowly — almost a whisper that if he doesn’t come closer he won’t be able to hear her, “Aren’t you Harry Styles?”

“Yes, I am,” he answers in a whisper as well.

“You’re not my blind date, are you?”

“No, ‘m not,” he chuckles. By now, they’re only inches apart since they’re whispering and each tries to get what the other is saying in such a crowded place.

Harry continues, “Why are we whispering?”

She leans back, still puzzled of the sight in front of her. She’s supposed to have a date with a close friend of her colleague’s who’s described as pretty much nothing like the man sitting on his supposed place.

Harry giggles, “I sat behind you. You were anxious for the past hour, tossing and turning ‘round like a little whirligig.”

She blushes. It’s her thing. She’s not a very serious person, she’s just very much bubbly and impulsive and all that. She easily laughs at the lamest jokes, she gets panic over the silliest little things, she’s just very in the moment. That’s understandable how Harry finds her funny and interesting enough to get him turn around and talk to her. He doesn’t find this kind of personality often around him and he’d love to get to know people who are downright spontaneous in a world full of plans and agendas.

“Are you alone? Here, I mean,” she raises an eyebrow.

“Let’s just say we had the same unfortunate event tonight,” he winks.

“No fucking way!” she closes her mouth with her hands, “How can the Harry Styles got stood up?”

To this outspoken question, he bursts into laughter. He’s accustomed to people being awed by his presence but he never sees such honesty. He always has people far up his ass, saying things to his liking. This situation, for instance: if he were to be talking to one of the said people, they would definitely backbite the girl who stood him up. But this girl doesn’t care about Harry Styles, she looks like she’s just really excited to hear a story from her old friend, Harry.

“Do you think she walked in, saw me, and left?” he mimicked her low question earlier.

She pouts. He chuckles. He’s been chuckling a whole lot more in the past hour than he usually does in a week.

“I love your music, by the way.”

His eyes light up and do the talking for him: really?

“Yeah, love it. Sorta reminds me of the good music, you know the golden era of rock and roll,” she runs her on the tablecloth pattern, “Not saying that nowadays’ music isn’t good or anything. It’s just… yours seem very truthful and different — a good different, of course. Oh, God… I’m sorry I have a tendency to ramble on.”

“Don’t apologize. I find it soothing.”

“What?”

“You talking,” he straightens up himself.

“You’re so full of it,” she laughs outright.

They talk about music for almost an hour, how she thinks one of his tracks reminds her of Electric Light Orchestra and how he voluntarily spills his classified personal approach towards that album. She says she likes bands from the 70s and his album brings back the vibes back that she thinks had long left the music industry and he can’t help but feel appreciated in the sincerest way possible. He tells her how they produced the album in Jamaica and how he wanted to put so much of himself in the album. She admits how she listens to his album in the midst of working, shower, jogging, sometimes even when she just feels like dancing by herself in her room.

And he can’t stop smiling, can’t stop beaming, can’t stop enjoying the sight of a person who just gets him. It feels like she presses a click inside him.

“I really hope you get to make more music,” she speaks lightly as she chews her meal.

“You know…” he puts down his fork, “Since we seem to have the same taste in music, I have exclusive access to a Roger Waters’ gig this weekend.”

Her eyes widen as he goes on, “Would you like to come? I can pick you up.”

“Harry— I don’t think I can take advantage of you like that.”

Harry melts upon her confession. Any person with that offer usually takes it in a blink of an eye but here she is, rejecting a grand opportunity because she doesn’t want him to feel used.

“You’re not taking any advantage out of me.”

“If you let me pay you back then I’m definitely in,” she smiles.

He frowns, “Now that’s not how my mum raised me as a man taking a woman to a date.”

She’s taken aback by his word choice but before she could answer, a girl approaches Harry.

“Harry, I’m so sorry. I didn’t know it was you,” she grabs him by his arm. Being a gentleman he is, he immediately stands up.

“You are…?” he asks. His eyes go back and forth from the girl to Y/N, as if saying he doesn’t know what the hell is going on.

“I’m Emily. Nick set us up?” the girl seems confused after seeing Y/N and tries to remind Harry of his supposed blind date.

“Emily, yeah, right…” his voice trails slowly as he looks over Y/N who seems somewhat out of place.

There is a clear muzziness written on Emily’s face. Y/N can tell Harry is a courteous man who can never be rude to anyone, hence she completely understands that he’s in a dilemma as in how to send her off and that the seat is no longer hers. So, she does what she thinks is right.

“Well, it turns out we don’t have the same unfortunate event tonight,” an ingenuous smile spreads across her cheeks, “I had just finished. Have a great night you two.”

She mutters a goodbye and thank you to Harry and finds her way to exit the restaurant. She doesn’t feel any remorse whatsoever. If anything, she feels lucky enough to have a heartfelt talk with someone as wonderful as Harry.

Although, she can’t help but wonder if he actually means the last word he said. They don’t even have each other’s phone number so that date can’t ever occur. She won’t lie that she feels a little disappointed but then again, they’re not supposed to be having dinner together in the first place.

So she casually walks down the street. A disbelief giggle leaves her mouth. She still can’t believe she actually just had dinner with one of the people from her iPod.

She decides to put an earphone and hums to a song as she reaches the crossroad.

There was love all around, but I never heard it singing,” she almost jumps when someone no other than the Harry Styles himself singing the song she’s listening to right beside her in a crowded crossroad. Apparently, her hums are not that soft that he can sing along.

She’s surprised but can’t hide her excitement to see him by her side.

No, I never heard it at all till there was you,” he ends with a smile.

She grabs off her earphone, “Thought you had a date back there?”

“I did,” he puts his hands into his coat pockets, “Had to get her back home safely now, didn’t I?“

She just grins, unsure of what is happening. She just keeps pinching herself hoping this isn’t one of her unrealistic dreams.

“You didn’t realize I was right behind you the whole time, eh?”

“I was just… thinking,” she reasons as she feels her cheeks turn fire red.

“About our date this weekend?” a cheeky smile appears on his pretty face and to that she just rolls her eyes.

His hand finds his way to embrace the side of her body and she leans into his broad chest as she hands him one tip of her earphone, the other tip being in her ear and they just keep humming on the way home, enjoying each other’s company and the unfortunate event they had tonight.

K but can we talk about Alana for a sec? Please??? Alana has high functioning anxiety and it really bugs me when people push her to the side and say she’s annoying. 

Yes, she did more harm than good when she released Evan’s letter but she was doing it to help people. That doesn’t excuse what she did, but at least we understand that she did it with good intentions. 

Alana knows how it feels to be alone, which is why Connor’s suicide affected her so much. She also has a Waving Through A Window reprise which we need to talk about. Waving Through A Window is a song that captures the feelings of all of the characters. They all feel a little alone, and the fact that Alana sings a reprise of it shows that she feels more alone than some of the other characters. 

Just please remember that Alana is an important complex character and that we shouldn’t push her away.

Also Kristolyn Lloyd is amazing and deserves more love

GoT S07E06 Thoughts

So I don’t know if this is late or early considering technically the episode doesn’t air till Sunday, but whatever, here we go: 

There was only one awesome thing about this episode, which was anything to do with the Night King and the Wight Dragon. Everything else was a complete departure from all we’ve come to learn about these characters, but that aside, let me try to understand it as best as I can.

We start the episode on Jon and the rest of the A Team trudging along and making fun of Gendry. I actually really liked all these scenes because the male bonding was done well, the dialogue was funny and the chemistry between these characters was believable. I mean I didn’t know I needed a Tormund x Sandor best friendship till that episode, especially when they begin talking about Brienne. Mr Tormund “I want to make babies with her” Giantsbane. It was brilliant, needless to say. 

What’s not so brilliant but a great moment of foreshadowing was Tormund’s conversation with Jon. He essentially tells Jon that although Mance Rayder was a great man, his pride got a lot of people killed, echoing Jon’s own words to the man: 

“"Isn’t their survival more important than your pride?”

And of course Dani’s words to Jon in the Cave of Invisible Chemistry. 

The problem I have with this is that it comes from Tormund, a wildling man whose pride is as much as a defining factor as his ginger beard. But whatever, I see what they’re trying to do here. They’re trying to justify what happens later because if Tormund can understand the dire need for Dani’s help over his own pride then Jon should too, and he does, of course, as we later find out. 

Here’s the thing though. I am still firmly of the camp that it’s all a ruse, and this is the moment Jon realises he might have to bend to Dani’s will for her alliance. He doesn’t want to and he knows fully well that the Northern houses will not accept her as their queen in any capacity, but all he cares about is his people’s survival through the Long Night. He’s willing to lose his kingdom for their safety. And this thought becomes even more concrete in Jon’s mind the moment Dani arrives to save his dumb ass with her three dragons. The look of awe on his face as those dragons rain hellfire on the wights is indicative of this because up until that point, he’s had a very abstract understanding of what these dragons are capable of and how they can help him. Seeing it in person, seeing them turn a hopeless situation into a victory, Jon fully understands now that the only way to survive is for Dani to fight with them with her dragons.

My feelings on the shitstorm that was the Supergirl event at SDCC 2017

One thing that upsets me the most about this SDCC Supergirl shitstorm is the fact that Melissa, the lead of the show that so many people look up to, whether they are children or adults, boys or girls, heterosexual or other, hasn’t even spoke about it. Jeremy has at least had the decency to apologise, even if the first one used the victim card, but now he’s actually speaking to the fans and listening to the real reason we’re upset. But Melissa, who is the lead, not only didn’t speak about it or apologise about it, she snuck out of the airport.

She is willing to hide from everyone instead of face this problem. How must that make all her adoring fans feel, the ones who looked up to her, the ones that idolised her, the ones who felt betrayed by her, how must that make all her fans feel when she won’t even speak to them about it, she won’t apologise or try to comfort the, she’ll ignore it and try to sneak out of the cause it means she won’t have to deal with it.

Honestly that gif of the little girl throwing her costume away is how I feel right now cause Melissa had always been my favourite actress. Not just because of what she has been in but from watching behind the scenes, interviews with fans she always seemed like a genuinely nice person, but the moment her fans are hurt, betrayed and upset, she runs away from them instead of to them. And now I can’t even think about her without being upset and I honestly don’t know if I want to continue watching the show. Even more so cause of Chris’ ‘sarcastic’ comment, David saying it was because they were tired and blocking anyone who doesn’t agree and Mechad telling Katie to shut up when she was talking, even if it was in Italian.

That’s another thing that upsets me cause if the reports are true. Katie was so upset that she travelled on a ordinary plane so she wouldn’t have to travel with her cast. That’s how much they upset her.

As someone who struggled with coming to terms with their sexuality, I am bisexual and for most of my childhood, I thought I was gay as I didn’t show a romantic interest in a girl until I was 14. I have always looks to Supercorp and Sanvers for comfort, but especially Supercorp, and what happened at SDCC made me feel silly, inferior and belittled just for shipping something that I knew 'was never gonna happen’ and made worse by Chris’ words, David’s tweets and Mechad telling Katie to shut up when she sided with the fans about how they should perceive it they want to.

Honestly I can’t think of the show, the cast (besides Katie, Odette, Chyler and Floriana) without getting upset, feeling sick now and I hate that cause I always enjoyed Supergirl more than any other DC CW show as I felt like I could relate to Kara as I have felt like an outsider all my childhood cause of my sexuality and personal history.

Disappointed is the word I can only use to describe my feelings right now cause I can’t think of any other word that could describe them accurately.

Kimberly learns that Trini mumbles in her sleep.

Sometimes it’s utter nonsense that spills out of her mouth, like “no, I don’t want to get on the flying snake” or “hands off my hotdog you son of a bitch.” Those are the funniest because Trini doesn’t like to curse when she’s awake - a habit learned by being around her little brothers all day - but man oh man, does her subconscious have things to say.

Warning: infidelity, internalized homophobia, unhappy marriage

(More warnings: Don’t read if you’re uncomfortable with being trapped in an unhappy marriage because of sexuality) 


Bitty slammed the door shut and threw himself into Jack’s arms. Jack, in turn, pushed him against the door and kissed him roughly, bodies melding together and moving in tandem. They don’t bother removing any clothes, despite the desperate way they’re grasping at each other, only focusing on kissing and kissing and kissing.

“No marks,” Bitty reminded Jack. “And we only have three minutes before you have to go and pick Sophie up.”

“Come with me,” Jack said, in between kisses. “We’re taking my van anyway, there’s more room in the back and I can take you to your meeting after picking her up.”

“Jack-” Bitty let out an embarrassing whine when Jack bit his ears softly. “Okay, okay. Okay,” he pushed him away. “We gotta go now.”
