And I'm over here

silverdragonms  asked:

Could I request some cuddly Stretch and/or Rus? I keep feeling tired and sad, but with no real reason. If you're busy, don't feel like you have to do this, I'm perfectly happy with looking forward to SSLL.

“hey, hun.  c’mon over here.”  Stretch beckons you toward the couch with an outstretched hand.  As per usual, he’s sprawled across it with his head pillowed against the armrest, a sucker stem sticking out from between his teeth. He waits patiently while you regard him, your foot still slightly raised from the carpet.  You had been in the process of leaving the skelebros’ house when he spoke up, feeling too worn out to continue your hang-out with Blueberry.  

You’d been feeling that way for a while now.  Run down, melancholic, with the things that once lifted your spirits doing nothing for you.  You had hoped that hanging out with Blueberry would be the cure, that his positvitiy and boundless energy would be infectious.  Instead, it had the opposite effect; you felt even more deflated than before.  That in itself left you downtrodden–you adored your time with Sans, and you wished that you felt well enough to properly hang out.  

The shift in your demeanor hadn’t gone unnoticed by Papyrus.  He always seemed to have a sixth sense about these things, his perceptive nature picking up on subtle changes.  He, too, had hoped that your plans with his brother would help (he wasn’t the type that pried; Papyrus had too many skeletons in his closet as it was to go around, looking through those of others), but the expression you’re wearing told him otherwise.

So he did all he could and reached out to you.  Literally.

Finally, you blew out a breath you’d been holding, and with a nigh-imperceptible nod, pivoted on your heel to take his hand.  Bone slid against your palm, and his fingers laced easily between yours and tugged, urging you to join him.    Automatically, you pulled against him, unsure if you should really lie on the couch beside him or insist on just going home.  Usually, when you sat on the couch with the skeleton brothers, Sans ended up with his head against your shoulder and Papyrus had his legs across your lap.  You’d never cuddled with him before.

…. But what would five minutes hurt?

You relent and Papyrus tugs you so your shoulder’s against the couch cushion and your head’s tucked beneath his chin.  Still holding your hand, his arm wraps around your waist, pulling you into his spoon.  He’s warm, the softness of his hoodie enveloping you with the scent of sweet smoke.  He adjusts, his other arm sliding beneath your head, pillowing your temple against his shoulder.  It’s harder than the couch cushion, but it makes you feel more secure.

Initially, your back is stiff, your entire body tense.  However, you’re able to slowly relax as the moments tick by in silence and his thumb traces the outside of your palm.  Only when the tension has completely drained from your body does Stretch break the silence.

“wanna talk about it, honey?”

You’re quiet for a moment, staring at the television.  There’s a Halloween special playing, a movie you haven’t seen since you were a kid.  A skeleton taxi driver is on the screen, but the volume’s so low that you can’t hear his lines.  Sans would probably get a kick out of it.

“About what?” you murmur, playing dumb as you focus on the movie.

His sigh stirs your hair.  “about what’s wrong?”

This time, the pause is even longer.  You don’t know how to explain it.  You’re trying to pin-point the reason you feel this way, the catalyst for your melancholic state, but you can’t.  Maybe it’s nothing.  Maybe it’s everything.  Maybe you just need a break.

You voice comes out nearly inaudible.  Stretch almost misses it.  

“I don’t know…”

His arms tighten around you, and you can feel his hum vibrate through his chest.  “it’s ok.”  His free arm bends to thread through your hair.  His touch is gentle, and the feeling is enough to make your gaze half-lidded.  “it’s ok, hun.”

“Can we just stay like this…?”

“mhmm.”  Stretch squeezes your hand.  He’s so comfortable that you can feel yourself falling asleep, but decide not to fight it.  You would have probably ended up sleeping at home, anyway, so why not enjoy a nap wrapped up in Papyrus’s arms?  Just as you begin to drift off, you swear that you feel his head tilt and his teeth press against the top of your head.

You fall asleep smiling.

reminders for the young wlw out there
  • it’s okay to want to have sex with a girl
  • it’s also okay to be totally terrified at the thought of having sex with a girl- internalized homophobia affects all of us to a certain extent
  • it’s okay to want to make out with a girl for hours on end (seriously, it’s totally an okay thing to think about)
  • it’s okay to fantasize about girls, even in a sexual way. you are not dirty for doing this.
  • you can absolutely wear clothes that are stereotypically lesbian, such as flannels. in the same note, you can totally cut your hair short if you want. you aren’t perpetuating a stereotype, you’re embracing who you are
  • you can also completely stay away from any clothing that would signify you might be a wlw (especially if you’re in a situation where the suspicion that you’re a wlw could cause you harm)- it’s completely your choice, just don’t shame anybody that does decide to take on that style.
  • it’s okay to not immediately date a girl once you come out. take some time to figure out your feelings, it’s okay. you’ll find somebody that you want to date in your own time, or you can just decide you don’t want to ever date anybody. that’s also perfectly okay.
  • it’s okay to dream about a future with a wife
  • it’s okay to hold your girlfriend’s hand in public and be affectionate in public. it’s not gross or icky, it’s good and cute, i promise.
  • it’s okay to come out to everybody you speak to (there’s nothing wrong with you, and if people judge you, they’re the ones who are wrong), but it’s also valid to only come out to a small select group of people. both approaches are fine.
  • it’s okay to masturbate while thinking about girls. it’s okay, you’re not weird for doing this. it’s a common thing.
  • it’s okay to watch movies or tv shows with wlw, even the ones that are cliche and really cheesy. if they make you feel validated and happy, continue doing so.
  • being a wlw is not shameful
  • you are not broken
  • you aren’t somebody that needs to be “fixed”
  • your thoughts and feelings are valid
  • you are not alone
  • you are loved
  • Me: Ugh, Zarkon is terrible! He's so cruel! Has no heart! Cat stealer!
  • Season 3: Haha oh yeah Zarkon was a sweetheart who was afraid of cats and laughed at his friends jokes and fell in love with an Altean
  • Me, on the brink of tears: Fair enough

In case you haven’t watched Wizards of Waverly Place (you missed out), but there was a magic necklace that glows only if you’re in love with the person who put it on you. And of course my heart was screaming klance. So here’s Keith being insecure about Lance’s feelings about him but feeling really happy that his bf loves him. Next

Holy motherfucking God WHY
this is not acceptable and will not allow it because it’s causing way too many problems for me because of his hotness and because of his fifty shades of holy kinky fuckery
why why why 😱😱😱😱😱🤤🤤🤤🤤

Gotta admit I’m kind of mad that back in season 1 the fandom cranked out art and meta of Keith being outright attacked or threatened by team members as part of a galra keith reveal but now that Allura, who experienced an incredibly traumatic loss and reacts accordingly, the fandom is lining up to aggressively rip on her because how dare she be skeptical of the Marmorans and her trust in Keith being damaged and Hunk actively points out hey it maybe has something to do with the literal destruction of her entire species and home planet that’s not something you get over in ten seconds.

As if, y’know.

Considering this:

And this:

would tell us that Allura probably grew up with most of her life as Zarkon as a family friend at minimum and quite probably a surrogate uncle figure. Someone she trusted, and was very close to, who just, incidentally, went on to kill her father and destroy every single planet in her solar system.

It isn’t as if the writers of the show specifically timed it so that Allura and Keith’s distance happened after s2e6 where we see that Allura pretty unambiguously trusted Keith with her life, in which case she was probably not having a visceral “ew, Galra” reaction as much as taking home the realization that once again there is someone that she genuinely trusts, feels close to, who is also a paladin, in the context of the last time this happened, she lost everything, and shutting Keith off and trying to bury that reaction because she also understands as Keith’s boss she’s responsible for him and shouldn’t hold that against him but trauma is not rational.

It isn’t as if in regards to the Marmorans, Allura agrees to go along with their plan as soon as Kolivan presents it, even if that means sending off all of her allies including Coran and leaving her alone on the castleship with Antok and Kolivan who are both twice her size and armed.

But. yeah. Clearly Allura isn’t making any leap of faith here. It isn’t like the last time galra were on the castle, Sendak’s invasion subtly messed up the systems in such a way that nearly killed her entire team and forced her to destroy Alfor’s AI. It isn’t as if she’d have every reason not to let Kolivan and Antok stay on the ship, much less count on them to watch her back in a fight considering they did something while Shiro and Keith were on the base to make the Red Lion flip into fight mode.

Also like… because everyone else had absolutely no reservations and welcomed the Blade with open arms, right.

TL;DR: Maybe remember Allura is some degree of traumatized and that she also made every concession she possibly could in spite of that, remember that Hunk in s2e9 points out exactly why Allura is upset and suggests she just needs some time and space to work through what are probably some deeply upsetting emotions, and how later Allura proves Hunk completely right on all counts in that regard.

Ravenclaw Headcanon

Ravenclaws get over excited when they talk about things they’re passionate about. It’s they kind of excitement where people either get very annoyed by it very quickly, or become so enraptured by what Ravenclaw is saying that they forget how much time has passed.
