i don’t think i will ever be able to feel genuine love again in my life and that scares me
my personality disorder and trauma interferes with the way i interact with and develop friendships with people and i think i will always be too scared to love again deep down
i think infatuation and obsession and lust is all i will ever feel and whether or not i try to convince myself that it’s love or i accept that i am just obsessive and confused is another story

a really short sanvers scene cause I needed to.

Alex never felt actually in love before Maggie. Before the NCPD girl showed up at her crime scene, the girl that loved guns, tiramsu, barenaked ladies and bonsai trees.
So one day, when she wakes up with her girlfriend by her side, she decides to make breakfast for her, and starts singing.
“ Darling lately, I’ve been walking blind in the dark never see the sun
You could save me
Give a little heat to the heart that was born to run
It was love in a minute, god I admit it
Let’s make a break for the door
Be my baby
Keep me crazy
Woah, oh oh, uhh!”
Maggie wakes up to her girlfrind’s beautiful voice singing, and her heart is full of love.
She walks into the kitchen to a dancing and smiling Danvers.
“Morning, Danvers”
“hey babe.”
“So I heard you singing like 20 seconds ago…”
Alex blushes.
“Oh”
“yeah… You have a beautiful voice love”
And suddenly Alex is singing close to her, as they slow dance in the kitchen.
Cause that’s the kinda thing she never knew she needed.

can i just say something?

when I was a kid, I told my mom that I wanted to be an actress when I grew up. You know what she told me?

She said, “sure, but you’re going to have to do it in China. America won’t hire you if you’re Asian.”

And that was it for that dream. 

Of course, that was just a phase - one of many, one I would’ve gotten over anyway. But what she said stuck to me. You’re going to have to act in China, because America doesn’t hire Asians.

And if there’s anything I learned over these years, it’s that she was right. Asian-Americans don’t get to see ourselves on screen. We don’t get to read about our deeds. And we get pissed. We complain, we shout, and people dismiss us because, oh, “the Japanese are okay with Ghost in the Shell”, and “I’ve heard that mainland Chinese are perfectly fine with Iron Fist.” Well, great for them. This isn’t about them.

This is about us. Asian-Americans. Asian-Canadians. Asian-Australians. Asian hyphen something. And the Asians in Asia don’t understand - because they can’t. They’re surrounded by media portrayals of them. They never have to fight for representation because it’s always there. They have no idea what it’s like to live in a country that sees you as other, and then to have to go back to your home country, to have your parents tell you “this is you, this is your culture, your heritage” and you look upon the faces of your family and you see nothing of yourself in them. 

Asian-Americans are not the same as Asians who live in Asia. We live in a different culture. Our values, our beliefs, the experiences that shape our lives are separate. 

We want to see ourselves in western media because it’s what we grew up with. It’s what surrounds us. Sure, we can watch K-dramas and anime and Chinese/Taiwanese/Japanese/whatever dramas, and a lot of us do, but it’s still not us

We shouldn’t have to go watch Asian dramas just to see a part of us represented. We shouldn’t have to move to Asia just to be hired. 

We deserve to represent, and be represented, as ourselves.

I hope you all had a nice Valentine’s Day ~ <3

shoosh pap pap shoosh

to be clear, anger about the british taking prized jewels from punjab and then refusing to give them back all these years later isn’t JUST about the damn jewels.

egyptian activists lobbying for ancient artifacts to be returned to egypt from france and all other stretches of the world isn’t just about the sentiment.

those things were taken forcibly from a people in a dehumanizing way, and a refusal to return them reinforces the idea that those who colonized still hold some form of power over those who they colonized. they are pieces of history that were taken with little to no regard of the people whose history they represented
