2013 is the best year ever

anonymous asked:

I'm new to this ship. So I kind of wonder why Dinah is the captain? Did she ever confirm Camren?

Let me introduce you to our wonderful captain Dinah Jane

Her run for the position of Captain started in 2013 with this tweet:

She was then officially elected Captain of the ship after this wonderful twitter exchange with Lauren’s boyfriend at the time :

Like the wonderful Captain that she is, Dinah knows about Camren’s finest literature and has read “Trials and Tribulations” :

Of course over the years our Captain has been keeping the ship afloat by bringing our babies closer and obviously keeping the secret (as best as she could 😂 )  :

She also gave us one of the biggest Camren proof that ever was, the famous Camren cuddling snapchat:

She herself confirmed her status as Captain many times :


It was also confirmed by co-captain Chelsea Briggs :

Talking about our wonderful co-captain, let me introduce you to her as well

She was elected co-captain after two events, the first, this interview where she shamelessly busted two Camren shippers :

And of course that famous red carpet interview where she had the balls to ask Camila and Lauren directly about Camren (bless her) :

After that Chelsea has been a consistent amazing co-captain when Dinah couldn’t navigate the ship (for obvious reasons), because Chelsea is a Camren shipper and she’s not afraid to show it :

Anyhooo, our wonderful Captains have been running this ship for years now, and we can all agree on one thing :

i don’t understand how some of you can sit here and try to force this mind set on people to believe that harry is doing this whole big solo thing when actually hes been doing nothing extra so far & doing a normal single release (just a little more dramatic and artsy) and that hes trying to erase himself from the band or trying to move on and forget the past / the boys and trying to convince everyone that hes the one ending the band when

1.) the band has been on hiatus since the end of 2015
2.) harry could’ve been a solo artist since like 2013 but never left the band
3.) its been over a year since the band went on break and hes just now releasing music, if he wanted to be the next jt he would’ve did it like a month after the break
4.) he explained in his magazine how they are on break and doing their own things
5.) he also explained in his magazine how this band was the best thing that ever happened to him
6.) just because hes being over hyped by his friends and the media doesnt mean harry asked / wanted them too, they have been over hyping everything he does for attention since xfactor tbh why is everyone acting surprised now ???
7.) he supported niall on his single, he supported louis at the xfactor with his new single
8.) the team (jeff & co) you are saying are encouraging the harry + ot3 hate were also the ones tweeting for 1d to win a brit rmbr ??? like ???

also did everyone forget that the boys all just wished him happy birthday publicly, even louis, louis !!! who hasnt tweeted harry publicly since like what 2013 or 14 i think like ??? if harry was this hot shot who wanted nothing to do with them they would’ve ignored him and not posted anything like they do on zayns birthday :) sooo i think that until harry says himself that hes over 1D (like zayn did when he went solo) im going to ignore this negativity around him because he doesnt deserve it, its not his fault that they put this image on him, he deserves a chance like niall and louis to be listened to and supported like we havent even heard him fucking speak yet and everyone is already turning on him relax, breathe, jesus christ.

Sixteen Years

Pairing: Lin x Reader

Words: 2820

Summary: You’ve known Lin for sixteen years, and been in love with him the whole time.

Warnings: swearing, awful proofreading because I finished this at like, one a.m. and I think that’s it :)

A/N: This is the first fanfic I’ve ever really written. I really don’t know if it’s any good but I enjoyed writing it and I hope you enjoy reading it – Skye x


March 19th 2016

“That’s a really stupid idea, man.” you smirked, throwing yourself down on the seat across from him.

“Ever heard of knocking?” Lin asked without turning to look at you. He’d become immune to your smartass comments and your intruding – you lived in the same house but somehow, he considered it intruding.  

“I live here, Lin. I don’t knock.”

“Clearly.” he replied, eyes still glued to his work.  

“Look who’s being the smartass now, Miranda.”

“Oh, bringing out the last name? I’m hurt.”

You laughed, leaving him to get back to his work. The only reason you hadn’t left his office was because you loved watching him work: he got so immersed in his work, almost like he was in a different world. He hadn’t bothered to question what you thought was a stupid idea. He probably didn’t care, you weren’t exactly great at lying to him. Though, Jasmine would probably argue that you were great at lying to Lin.  

Nearly everyone knew about the crush you had on him. Everyone except him. For years you had been enduring the jokes about it, and for a long time you’d been subtly kicking people under the table, but mostly Anthony. Anthony found the fact that you’d lived with Lin for years, been in love with him for most of those years and he still didn’t know was hilarious. He made a point of making a least one joke about it every time he saw you. Slowly, you’d realised that boys really don’t make any sense.  

Lin held everything in your life together. From bringing you coffee during finals week in college to proofreading every stupid draft you’d ever written, he was there. From you making him sleep after two days without any to you dragging the founding fathers with him, you’d been there. Through everything the two of you had been there. There in the place you called home. Despite how messy your apartment was – piles of paper drafts, pens scattered everywhere and the vastly ignored chore chart – it was home. Over the years you’d known Lin, you’d come to realise that home was wherever he was.  


February 23rd 2000

“Hey, uh, are you okay?”  

For hours you’d been sitting in the library, scribbling in a notebook, attempting to draft papers that you had due. You’d been skipping between two of them. By this point your handwriting was so smudged and rushed that even you could barely read it, after years of having to translate the mess to other people. It had been a while since you stopped counting how many people told you that you really needed to sort your handwriting out. You could read it, that was enough. But tonight, you were just too tired.

The guy across from you was looking at you now. He must’ve thought you were deranged; eye bags that were almost black rather than purple, hands in your hair and crumpled up balls of paper surrounding you. Looking up from your drafts you took in his appearance. He looked almost as stressed as you did. You smiled.

“Yeah. Sorry if I look a bit weird, I have papers I need to write and, honestly, it’s not going so well,” you replied. He laughed, getting a glare from the librarian. You almost resented her for the glare. His laugh was brilliant, almost like a child’s. It was happy and made everything feel a little less stressful.  

“I feel you. I’ve been in here all day, I even fell asleep earlier.” you laughed as he continued, “I’m really shocked Ms G hasn’t kicked me out yet. Oh, I’m Lin, by the way. Not that you needed to know, but I thought maybe knowing my name would make me seem like less of some random weirdo annoying you while you’re trying to study-”

“Do you always talk this much or is it a weird stage of sleep deprived?” you joked, smirking as he caught onto his rambling. “I’m Y/N.”  

“Nice to meet you, Y/N.” he smiled.


March 9th 2008

“You did it!” you grinned, throwing your arms around Lin as he came backstage. He laughed, picking you up and spinning you.  

“Ugh, get a room.” Karen moaned, watching as he set you back down. You knew she was joking, just one of the many to catch on to your crush on Lin and poke fun at it. As you hugged her you could see Lin making faces behind her. You tried not to laugh, Karen noticed and whipped her head around.  

“Something funny, Miranda?”  

He was still making a face when she spoke to him. You watched as his face dropped, realising the situation he’d just landed himself in. Karen and Lin were like siblings, and Karen was definitely the stone cold big sister, even though she had a heart of gold.  

“No?” he answered, though it sounded more like a question. Karen smirked.  

“The shit I put up with,” she mumbled, walking off and leaving you and Lin alone.

The two of you laughed.  

You were so proud of Lin. In The Heights was on Broadway; his show was on Broadway, the show he’d been working on for years had finally taken off. Looking at him, you realised that he was no longer the kid across the table from you in the library. The kid that had taken the time to check if you were okay, then rambled for what felt like forever. He was different now, but he was still Lin, still your best friend.  

He wrapped his arms around you again. You pressed your head to his chest, listening to his steady heart as you hoped that he couldn’t hear yours racing.  

In those few minutes you spent in his arms you began to wonder if this was the end of an era. Was this the end of three a.m. coffee runs? Was this the end of pissing off the neighbours with playing the piano at ridiculous times of the night? Was this the end of the life you’d become accustomed to? But you kept listening to the beat of his heart and little by little, you realised it wasn’t the end of anything. Lin was still Lin, and that meant coffee at three a.m. and playing the piano ridiculously late at night.

“I did it, Y/N,” he whispered.

“You did it, Lin-Manuel Miranda. You did it.”


June 29th 2013

“Burr always held back, he never pushed forward with his ambition.”

“Are you psychoanalyzing Aaron Burr?”

Lin grinned sheepishly, turning around to look at you. He was sat at his piano, attempting to meet Hamilton deadlines and mumbling about the founding fathers to himself.

“Perhaps,”  

When Lin had decided his next project was going to be a musical about Alexander Hamilton you hadn’t been surprised. You had said: ‘Stupid ideas are usually your best ones, run with it’. Four years later, you had been proved right. Hamilton was one of the best ideas he’d ever had. He frantically tried to meet deadlines and you brought home coffee and books about U.S. history.

“Why am I not surprised,” you mumbled. “You have a point though, dude was pretty messed up. I mean, he ran for president and had like, zero campaign.”  

Lin laughed, picking up his notebook. Usually he’d scribble down the sessions in which the two of you would bitch about the founding fathers. Once, you’d asked him why and his only response was a shrug and an incoherent mumble. Sometimes he’d play drafts for you and you’d hear some of lyrics, that really just sounded like five year olds arguing, and you just knew that those were the ones derived from the two of you moaning about how stupid Alexander was sometimes.

“That he did.” Lin laughed, still writing in the tattered old notebook.  

“Need more coffee?” you asked. It had been hours since either of you had brought some home. For the past week whenever coffee was needed someone, usually you, had to go out and buy some. All because Lin was too lazy to buy more after he had finished the coffee in the house.  

“Yeah, please. Do you think you could get it? I kinda got something going,” he motioned towards his notebook and piano. You nodded, grabbing your bag and you shoes. He waved as you left, locking the door behind you.  

Stepping into the cold air you sighed. Maybe you should’ve listened to Karen all those years ago, back when In The Heights was still in rehearsals and she had asked you what was really the worst that could happen if you told him. But here you were, thirteen years into a friendship with him and still hopelessly in love with the guy.


April 7th 2015

“Y/N, your eyes literally turn into hearts every time you see him. Cartoon style.” Daveed laughed. Renee and Pippa smiling as they warmed up.  

“Fuck all of you guys.” you groaned.  

“Who are we fucking?” Anthony interjected, suddenly appearing in the room.  

“At this rate, not you.” you shot at him. As he placed a hand on his heart, faking hurt you couldn’t help but dissolve into laughter.

Ever since you’d actually admitted to the Hamilton cast that you were ridiculously head over heels for Lin, you hadn’t heard the end of it. They’d all known for ages that you liked him, and had been cracking jokes about it since you met them, but now that you were no longer denying it; it was even worse.  

Daveed was still looking at you with 'heart eyes’ and his tongue out. You rolled your eyes and turned away from him, still hearing the laughter behind you. Leaving the room, you went to find Lin.  

After looking for a while and being unable to find him, you sent him a text letting him know that you were leaving – as much as you loved the cast and everyone else, you had your own job to attend to. Plus, hanging around the Public all day made you bored. Whenever Lin wasn’t there you just felt like there wasn’t a point in being there.  

Arriving at your work, you hung up your jacket and started up a conversation with Ella, the girl you worked with most days.

“For April, it is surprisingly hot out there,” you spoke.

“And yet you were still wearing your jacket.” Ella replied smoothly, as though she’d been waiting to say it to you. You smiled at her.  

“It’s me, Ella. Did you expect anything less?” She laughed, handing you her jacket.

“Could you hang that up for me please? So that your coat isn’t lonely.”

“I swear, this is bullying,” you mumbled.

Your day went by quickly, the small bookstore you worked in was fairly busy and even after a seven hour shift it still felt like you had more hours left.  

Walking home in the dark wasn’t so bad. You’d grown used to it, even learning to enjoy the solitude and the freedom to think by yourself for a while. Eventually, your thoughts led you back to Lin. You hadn’t seen him all day and the effect was setting in. You weren’t smiley or chatty. You just wanted to be home, to be in the same room as him for a little while. Just the two of you; no castmates joking about your impending doom and no stress of acting like the feelings weren’t there.  

Just you and Lin. That was all you needed.


August 6th 2015

“You did it! Again!” you grinned as Lin came backstage. It had been just over seven years since the last time you’d done this. Since the last time he’d picked you up and spun you around. The two of you spent a few minutes in the embrace, unwilling to let each other go.  

“It’s been seven years since I last heard you say that,” he smiled.

“I can tell you right now that that’s a lie, but, I’ve been waiting all this time to say it like that again.” you laughed, finally tearing yourself from his arms.  

“God, get a room,” Daveed groaned. You and Lin looked at each other and burst out laughing. Everyone except Chris was staring at the two of you, unable to understand the laughter. When you stopped laughing you figured you owed Daveed an explanation, but didn’t bother. Instead, Chris filled everyone in.  

“Karen said that exact same thing on Heights opening night.”  

“Wow, even in 2008 you guys were all over each other,” Anthony smirked.  

Eventually everyone retreated back to their dressing rooms. You and Lin walked to his in silence. Once inside, he pulled you into another hug. This time, his heart was racing and you could hear it. You had hoped not to cry again that night but you were.  

Everything Lin did amazed you. His talent and his ambition and his ability to make your heart jump with one look. It had been seven long years of stress and tears and crumpled up drafts but here the two of you were again. At the Broadway opening of Hamilton. You smiled into his chest as you made an attempt to dry your tears.  

“Sometimes, I swear you’re the only reason I ever get anything done.” he whispered, just loud enough for you to hear.  

The tears started again.


March 19th 2016

“Hey, Lin?”

“Yeah, Y/N?”  

This was it. This was sixteen long years of friendship about to be changed, no matter his reaction. You looked at him before speaking. There was the rambling kid from college who sat across from you in the library, there was the man who has held you close on the biggest night of his life, there was the guy who made fun of historical U.S. politicians with you, there was the best friend who somehow disappeared into the Public, there was the Lin who had cried with you in his dressing room, there was the person you were in love with.  

Admittedly, the years hadn’t been all smiles. But regardless, they’d been the best sixteen years of your life. You had become someone so amazing that fourteen year old you would’ve been shocked. Lin had become someone so brilliant that twenty year old you wouldn’t have been able to understand. The two of you had become so astounding.  

“I’m in love with you.” you blurted, surprising yourself. Before Lin could reply you kept going.  

“I’ve been in love with you since you proofread my paper and all you could say was: 'You’re gonna be even more amazing someday’. I’ve spent sixteen years watching girls come and go, scaring them off when you couldn’t get rid of them yourself. Spent those sixteen years wishing it was me. I loved you when you hugged me backstage after Heights’ opening and all I could hear was your heart beating and wondering how you were so calm. I loved you when you were analysing Aaron Burr at four in the morning. I loved you when you spent an hour in my bookshop pretending to be looking at things just to spend your break with me. I loved you when you held me tight and told me I was the only reason you ever get anything done. And I love you right now, looking at you and wondering where the clumsy college kid went but knowing he turned into you and I couldn’t be more proud. I love you Lin-Manuel Miranda and for the first time in sixteen years I can’t bite my tongue about it anymore.”

Before you knew it, Lin’s lips were on yours. The kiss was short, but in the short amount of time sixteen years had spilled onto your lips.  

“I have loved you since you looked at me with the brightest eyes and asked if I really meant it when I said you were brilliant, Y/N Y/L/N.”

Suddenly, sixteen years seemed like just the beginning.

I've been a big fan of you since 2013. You're the literal best artist I've ever seen.

holy crap, thank you! that’s incredibly flattering! thanks for sticking around all this time!! ;o;

Anonymous said:

2013 likes most like the art I associate with you for some reason I’m stuck 3 years behind

there’ve really only been minor tweaks to the style since then, so you’re really not super far behind. the biggest thing that’s changed is my coloring! and i’ve really rounded everything out. once i started training myself to work in huge resolutions, my comic work started looking a lot more professional!

(that bottom piece was actually done in december 2015 i was just too lazy to go back and fix the date there ngl)

i cleaned my line art up something fierce

PINING WHEN ONE OF THEM IS IN A RELATIONSHIP

Ain’t That A Kick In The Head (series) by Swing Set in December

Wherein Hogwarts is a hotbed for teen romcoms where the surly hot guy is really a romantic dork who pines after the oblivious nerd who love getting into trouble. Oh and there are dragons. AND FEELINGS. And magic, but that’s really not important to the plot.


Safety in Silence by Survivah

It’s perfectly understandable. Even Derek wouldn’t want to be Derek’s soulmate.


Worth the Wait by Dexterous_Sinistrous

Stiles always had a thing for Derek, but then again, so did everyone else. Stiles just wanted to be seen as different, which was why he waited.

But maybe he waited a little too long.

Prompt: “Stiles shy nerd (SWEET KIND LOVING NURTURING OMEGA PLS!),has a HUGE crush on his bff popular Derek (MFBADASS ALPHA). He keeps on trying to shine through the hordes of Derek’s admirers. Derek sometimes catches scent of his mate but doesn’t know it’s stiles with all the ABO (kate/jen/paige/etc) around. derek tells everything to stiles bcs they’re such bff & he’s comfortable with stiles (sheriff & Talia work together to take care of BH). Stiles usually bows out everytime any ABO tries to talk to Derek bcs he’s not that hot/beautiful like others. then stiles reaches the age to get a mate, tries to confess to Derek but sees derek with somebody and thought derek gets a mate & is heartbroken (but resolves to an unrequited love). Then new OMC comes & tries to court stiles, Derek gets angry but doesn’t know why & tries to gets stiles back (new OMC keeps on getting in the way between them). things happens (Derek realizes stiles’s his mate or something or anything) & happy ending!”

****WARNING this is super long because I need to address a lot**************
Okay. I’m going to address about 100 anonymous asks I’ve received all at once here. I’m having a difficult time trying to go through all the asks to find ones that aren’t about the same thing.
I posted about how proud I am with Alex and how she’s been playing recently. I’m not taking this back, but I am going to explain it some more for those who seem to not understand it.
Okay.
Alex Morgan is an amazing player. She has an extremely unique way of playing, and she’s become a player that so many defenses want to take down. And I’m about to really break down the importance of why these goals, even against teams that aren’t necessarily the best, are extremely important and worthy of praise. *also sorry that I focused on NT play more, I felt like most people would be able to relate to that more*
.
In 2011 Alex was number one overall draft pick in the WPS draft. She went on to win the championship with WNY. This was also the year that she joined the Senior NT. This was a WC year, and she scored two goals. She was also the first player to have a goal and assist in a WC final.
.
In 2012, an Olympic year, Alex became a starter for the NT. Alex scored the equalizer and game winning goal during the opening game of the Olympics. This was the year Alex made history. (If you don’t know what I’m about to say then go watch USAvCAN 2012 Olympic semi finale) Alex scored the game winning goal in the 123rd minute; breaking the tie, sending the US to the gold medal match, and setting a US/FIFA record for latest goal. She went on to lead the US in goals, multi-goal games, assists, points, and became one of the only WNT players to have over 20 goals/20 assists in the same calendar year. She also was US soccer’s 2012 Female Athlete of the Year. Seriously just go look up this year for Alex because I compacted it into strictly the most important stuff because I could spend days talking about 2012 and what an amazing year it was for her.
.
2013-2015
These years were a dark period in Alex’s life. She was injured three different times. Ankle, ankle again, and knee. She was able to do some amazing things in between her injury times though. With her new club Portland Thorns, in 2013 she was the team’s point leader and scoring leader of the year. She also played a part in getting the championship and resulted her being named to the NWSL second XI. Youngest player in 2013 to ever be named to the All-Time Women’s NT Best XI at 24. She was rewarded top scoring honors for the 2013 Algarve Cup. During the 2015 she scored the only goal against England, which was her returning game to the NT. She scored a goal against Columbia during the WC, after coming back from her knee injury. Though she didn’t score again during the WC anymore she played a vital part in winning PKs and pulling the defense apart.
.
2016
This is the year she got her 100th cap and got a goal and assist. During CONCACAF she made another record (tournament and USWNT) with fastest goal at 12 seconds. She later went on to win the golden boot and MVP awards for her performance at the SBC. She had 17 goals in 21 games. She scored 2016’s best goal of the year. She was voted best player during CONCACAF. She was playing like a beast this entire year and if you go back through articles upon articles and different highlights, you’ll be able to see that.
.
2017
Even though the year just started she’s done so much with her loan team the Olympique Lyonnais. She has scored a brace, hat trick, and 4 goals in the past 5 games I believe. She’s playing at a higher level then I’ve honestly seen her play in a long time. She’s back in her prime. She’s finally healthy. (Knock on wood *knock knock*) She’s confident again. That’s what matters most.
.
As a forward, especially, their mindset and confidence is a huge part of the game. She spent 3 years of her career injured. She played some, but those are prime years for most players and she had to miss out on them because of those injuries. This game isn’t just being physically fit and ready to go, so much of it is a mental game. (Honestly if you don’t play, and if you have never played in a high stress situation, I’m not sure you would ever fully understand) Her “baby horse” mentality is back. And it’s stronger than ever. If you look at everything she did before her injuries it’s monumental. And obviously there was an extreme amount of pressure on her to get back to where she was in 2012 and every time she couldn’t because of injuries it slowly wore down her confidence in her game and her strong mindset.
.
The reason I’m so proud of her is because she fought that. She pushed past three long years of injuries, lack of confidence/results, and honestly most players would have extreme doubt at that point. She had to push past critics that said she would never play the same way again. That she lost her spark. Well guess what, she didn’t. Baby horse is back and better than ever. Baby Horse is all grown up and ready to destroy all her haters and critics. . Sorry for how long it is. Needed to rant to hateful and bitter anons.

The traditional annual redraw of my very first Nwalin fanart. Happy Nwaliversary to me, happy Nwaliversary to meeeeeee! It’s been four years since I stumbled over the first fanarts and fics for this, drawing them gave me a drive to improve and be an artist, meeting their actors gave me confidence in wanting to be an actual illustrator for the first time in my life, and now I’ve moved to a new country and went from the worst time of my life 4 years ago to the best time I’ve ever had, close to graduating… Thank you all for sticking with me for all these years!

((I don’t even know what to say here, if I’m completely honest.  It might seem like a lot of rambling as I go forward.  I haven’t really had a moment to take it all in yet.  But death is a weird thing for me and it just hasn’t hit me fully until now.  You can ask me on my mod blog about it.

@askrustynail is one hell of a guy.  That must be said.  It cannot go unsaid.  Rusty is one of the very few that have been around as long as I have in this community.  And he is without a doubt deserving of a place on the Mount Rushmore of Tumblrpon.  Not only for his unique blog and his fun character, which is how we were introduced to him.  But for his kindness, his brilliance, his giving spirit.  That is what I and anyone who’s met him in person will take away from him.

I first met him at Trotcon 2013.  It was where I got my first jar of honey vanilla vodka from him.  It wouldn’t be the last jar I would get either.  I will fully admit that it wasn’t my favorite drink.  I did sample it from time to time, but I enjoyed sharing it with friends just as much.  I took the jar I got at Bronycon ‘15 to an Illini tailgate and shared it with my college buddies there.  Daniel said it was one of the best drinks he’s ever had in his life.

I still have the jar he gave me at Trotcon last year.  I plan on sharing it with everyone when we get back together this year, in a toast and tribute to him.

Rusty is a genius at mixing drinks.  He helped Wiggles and I out immensely during King Pirate Power Hour at Trotcon last year, serving as the unofficial bartender for the panel.  He got me to sample a drink that was basically hot sauce with alcohol in it.  It took me by surprise, but it was good.  He made that panel a lot more fun.

Rusty is hilarious too, and is outstanding at dishing out puns.  I know all you guys think I’m really good at it (for some reason), but Rusty was a pro at it.  During Punanel last year with Sam, I invited Rusty to come on it.  He stole the show for that hour and had people roaring with laughter.

Most of all, Rusty has a kind heart and spirit.  He’s always willing to help people out.  He’s always able to sense when people are in trouble or stressed and give them a calming presence.  And you could talk to him about anything too.  One of the last times we chatted in person, Rusty and I were talking about public radio and what I could try to do to get our station’s name out there more.

It’s going to suck to go to Trotcon or Bronycon this year, and not see him there.  There’s going to be an empty feeling, and everyone is going to wish he was with us for one more round or one more conversation.

I know this is going to sound cliche, but we can’t take life for granted.  Rusty is only one year older than me, and he’s not going to be with us anymore.  That’s just not fair.  He was taken too young from us.  I know I’m going to try and make a better effort to reach out to friends old and new, because I wish I had chatted with him more outside of conventions.  We should all strive to live life like he did.

And my heart goes out to @technomod.  It’s not fair for Rusty and Tech didn’t get to live the rest of their lives together.  We’re all thinking about you and want to help you in anyway possible.

So here’s to a last call with Rusty.  I’ll miss you good sir.  I’ll see you on the other side for drinks and arguments over football.))

Pre-debut: Little innocent munchkins (except for rapmon)

Debut year (2013): “Oh yeahhh, we badass af. We’re wearing all black, we’re gangsters now!”

2017: “Tae’s wearing Gucci 24/7. Jungkook’s forever a meme. Jimin’s a mochi who needs to be protected. Jin’s windshield laugh brightens up my life. Hobi’s smile is brighter than the sun itself. Yoongi’s gummy smile is the best thing ever. Joon’s dimples are deeper than the Pacific Ocean.”

I’m not submitting this not because I think many people will take the time to read this, I’m doing it as kind of an outlet.

The screenshots aren’t the last messages received, they’re from the last real heart-to-heart my mom and I had about 5 months before she died.

This last time we ever talked was on her 45th birthday.

Here comes the long part, bear with me…
- In September of 2013, my 20 year old self thought it would be a genius idea to move 2400 miles from home.
- In October of 2013, my mom became sick and went into the hospital. This was the beginning of about 14 every long months in the hospital/some type of medical facility.
- In November of 2013, I flew home and surprised her just in time for her birthday. That was the last time I ever saw her alive, but we still talked nearly everyday. She was my best friend.
- In October of 2014 I didn’t hear from her for three or so weeks. She had told me that she was having issues with her cell phone and she still had that ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ attitude, so I didn’t think much of it.
- On November 12th 2014, her 45th birthday, I finally got ahold of her. The conversation started with me wishing her a happy birthday and giving her a hard time about getting old, and ended with her telling me that she was being moved to hospice.
I was in complete shock, I had no idea it had gotten that bad. She still tried to reassure me that everything would be okay, that it was just to let her body rest and time to heal. As I was bawling, I remember telling her “I’m not stupid, I know what hospice is!”, but she still tried to tell me it was going to be okay.
- She was moved to hospice a few days later and I booked my flight home. Due to prior obligations that I had no way of getting out of, my flight wasn’t for a few more days.
- In the really early hours of November 21st 2014, at the age of 21, I received the call that my mom and best friend had died. She signed a DNR and ended up dying of cardiac arrest, and I wasn’t there. She was alone.

I completely changed the moment that I received that call, not necessarily for the better. My life has been a complete disaster since.
I carry so much guilt and anger. Not towards her, but life and myself. She was my best friend, there are so many things that she is supposed to be here for. So many things that a daughter needs her mother for and I will never get to experience that. I feel very lost amd alone.

It’s been about 2 years and 5 months, the hardest and loneliest 2 years and 5 months of my life.

Here are my ideal winners of Eurovision last 10 years:

2017 - Portugal : Simply stunning. Best winner ever.

2016 - Russia : Victim of politics.

2015 - Italy : FUCK THIS IL VOLO SHOULD HAVE WON THEY WERE THE BEST

2014 - Austria : Well deserved.

2013 - Denmark : Obviously. That years was the worst.

2012 - Serbia : Nije Ljubav Stvar aka the best Serbian song ever.

2011 - Denmark : Still one of my favourite songs ever.

2010 - Turkey : Most robbed song of all time.

2009 - Norway : Obviously.

2008 - Russia : Well deserved.

anonymous asked:

in your opinion, what is the best dance off that's been at tda? like the one which every dancer was amazing and they were all fighting for it??

tbh all of them!!!! they were all amazing if they made top 10/11!!! personally i can feel the tension with the juniors and the teens, the minis are so small and still have souls in their bodies so it wasn’t that bad. the boys seem to be a lot more relaxed across the board, and all the senior girls and a couple teens every year fight for it but they don’t make it seem like they are in a really really tight competition. they just do their thing!

my fav dance offs: i hold this one dear but realized it’s only bc it’s one of my fav improvs done, kalani’s legendary murder at TDA 2013.

probably the one that fits your description: the senior female girls proving once again they leave fire on the stage whenever they dance. the best ever, simi snatched every hair off my body. my girl!!! but honestly everyone killed it, no weak links in my opinion. 

also the junior tda dance off w/ quinn, boss, and jaycee in top 3! not a fav but you could tell they were all ready to kill someone. 

also the best one from tda lv, the senior boys!!! lots of heavy hitters like deary lex, riley, jj, nico, etc. a strong group that probs went unnoticed! 

one i just watched yesterday: a more interesting one, besides the leg leg leg lauren yakima smokes everyone with her ballroom skills showing that whatever yall can do, she can do in heels. also a girl tapped for both the ballad and the upbeat jazz.

Steven Gerrard, Central Midfielder, spent 17 seasons at Anfield, making his Liverpool debut in 1998, cementing his place in the first team in 2000, and succeeding Sami Hyypiä as team captain in 2003. His honours include two FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Champions League, one UEFA Cup, and one UEFA Super Cup.

Regarded to be one of the greatest midfielders of his generation, Gerrard came second to Kenny Dalglish in the “100 Players Who Shook The Kop”, a 2008 Liverpool fan poll, and first in 2013. Zinedine Zidane and Pelé said in 2009 that they considered Gerrard to be the best footballer in the world. In 2005, Gerrard was honoured as the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year and won the Ballon d'Or Bronze Award. He has also been named in the PFA Team of the Year a record eight times, the UEFA Team of the Year and FIFA World XI three times, and was named PFA Players’ Player of the Year in 2006 and the FWA Footballer of the Year in 2009. He is, to date, the only footballer ever to have scored a goal in an FA Cup Final, a League Cup Final, a UEFA Cup Final and a UEFA Champions League Final, also being on the winning team on each occasion.

In the wake of the unspeakable tragedy he unwittingly helped to trigger, Superman faces his greatest loss and his most challenging moral decision ever. Everything is about to pivot on the choice he makes; it could change the course of the world–and the lives of all the super heroes–forever.

METROPOLIS, YEAR 2013. Clark Kent and Lois Lane have a bright future waiting for them; they’re expecting. Batman is about to become godfather. All is for the best in the best of all possible worlds. Until Joker’s plan. Jimmy Olsen died by Lois’ side from the hand of the Joker, then abducts her to trick Superman into killing the love of his life.

Everyone’s on it, Batman’s calling the members of the Justice League to find Lois. In vain, when they finally arrive, Superman is already murdering Lois, driven mad by Scarecrow’s fear toxin. He realizes too late that he’s holding Lois in his arms, and that Joker hid a nuclear weapon in her chest, which detonates, destroying Metropolis and killing millions of innocent people.

Superman SURVIVES.

Batman interrogates Joker after the attack, but a devastated Superman breaks into the room and kills Joker. Over the following years, Superman becomes a ruthless tyrant who establishes a unified world government that eliminates crime through an authoritarian regime, and Batman establishes an insurgency against him.

The question is now, are you on Superman or Batman’s side ?
