The greatest part about my dad liking anime

So this year I found out my dad is really really into anime. 

Which was really cool cause I had been out of the anime loop for a long time and was looking for some recommendations.

Now my dad is a WWII history buff who likes war movies and plays World of Tanks and is an ex cop and ex military type who also is the only reason I watched He-Man and Johnny Quest growing up.

So I figured he’d be into the big action anime.


My dad’s taste in anime is almost entirely adorable.

-Sweetness and Lightening

-Squid Girl



-Poco’s Udon World

-Yuri on Ice 

When questioned why he likes these my dad said “Because they are cute and happy and cheer me up! I like it better then the dark and serious ones with all the blood and stuff. That’s not as much fun.”

Also! My dad looks for characters now that blur gender lines so that he can recommend shows that have characters that appeal to Kiddo more.

Like he specifically suggested Log Horizon because of Tetra who yes my Kiddo loves (Kiddo has been known to pose like Tetra and even go “Ding!” when they throw a leg up behind them. It’s brilliant)

He did call Yuri on Ice “bromancy” but I replied with “Dad no. It’s gay as hell” and my dad replied with “Yeah and the story is brilliant! And the ANIMATION! SO GOOD!” 

That’s when I remembered that figure skating was pretty much the only Olympic sport that was watched in my house growing up and that my dad took my coming out in stride and also that he’d always not been phased at all by my gay friends and that he had actually once been a theatre major and had gay friends in the 70′s  so yeah he wouldn’t be put off by Yuri on Ice being gay.

tl:dr Basically my dad is a bigger anime fan than I am and prefers to watch all the very cute adorable anime’s rather then the action ones.


Les Amis as Sims because I have nothing better to do with my time

Brave Williams from New York is just 17 but is already 7ft 1 and growing

Towering over his teammates at 7ft 1in tall, 17-year-old Brave Williams is hoping his height can help propel him to sporting stardom.

The 400lb senior at Lake Shore High School in Angola, New York, is already a highly-regarded member of his high school basketball and American football teams.

And the youngster is now setting his sights on winning a much-coveted college athletic scholarship.

‘When I was five years old, I was like 5ft 3in.’

'The teachers thought I was actually a second grader, so they put me in the wrong class for about an hour before they realised their mistake.’

'I had to tell them that I was just starting school.’

However, Brave very nearly didn’t make it to even his first birthday - he had to be delivered via caesarian because the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck.

'The doctors tried to pull me out three times before they were going to take more drastic measures. But as soon as my dad touched my mom’s forehead, I let go, and the doctors got me out,’ Brave told high school sports site MaxPreps.

'My dad instantly named me Brave because I needed a strong name.’

Specialists were concerned that he might be suffering from a form of gigantism known as Sotos syndrome, but tests done at three months and again at three years came back clear - much to the relief of his mother Angela.

She said: 'Every day he grew more and more, so that was when I got worried.

'To finally get the word that you have just got a tall kid was really relieving to say the least.’

Brave is now 7ft 1in tall - the same as Basketball Hall of Fame legend Shaquille O'Neal - but experts predict will be 7ft 5in by the time he stops growing, the same size as his great-great uncle.

Brave said: 'He made a pine tree look like a sapling. So, I think that’s where I got most of my height from.’

Born of African-American and Native American heritage, Brave lives on the Cattaraugus Reservation in the Seneca Nation of Indians.

The tall teen sleeps in a custom-made bed, although his feet still dangle off the end, and wears size 21 shoes.

While Brave’s size makes him killer on the court, it does also attract unwelcome attention in the form of stares and comments.

Mom Angela said: 'It was tough for me when my son turned five because then he had to go to school and I had to share him with the world.

'It was hard because he is sensitive and people stare, they look, they point.

'Now he’ll take the time to talk to everybody, people ask him the same questions over and over again - “How tall are you? Are you a wrestler? Are you this? Are you that?” And he just takes the time to respond, that’s his special gift.’

Brave is now determined to go on and become a pro athlete, but says he wants to go to college and complete his studies first - and would like to major in engineering.

And for 5ft 9in Angela, Brave’s stature is more than just an accident of genetics.

'I thought about my son being tall for a long time, and I think there is a reason why he’s so tall - because it gets him noticed and makes people listen to him,’ she added.

'But the rest is what matters, what really makes him special. I know he’s going to do big things.’


even must be lying awake right now all alone, by himself, and he must be feeling nothing but guilt and shame.

he probably doesn’t want to see or speak to anyone right now. he must be so lost in his own thoughts of “isak wasn’t meant to see me like this. isak wasn’t supposed to find out like this. isak will probably never want anything more to do with me, now that he knows i’m like this.”

he is in so much pain right now. he is TERRIFIED of what this could mean for him and isak. he must be BEATING himself up by thinking “why couldn’t i just CONTROL myself last night when things were going so well? why did i go and have to fuck it up?”

he knows that people are gonna start finding out, and he’s not even thought about dealing with that yet because that’s just a whole different story which will drain him out if he thinks about it right now.

right now, even’s just drowning in his post manic episode state. now is where he is gonna hit ROCK BOTTOM. be at his lowest. and he needs isak’s support more than ever right now, even if he tells himself he can’t face isak after this, he needs isak to tell him nothing’s changed in terms of how they feel about each other.

because only THEY can feel what THEY FEEL for EACH OTHER.

Every time I think about a Victuuri proposal, I just can’t decide who I would want to do it??

Like on the one hand, if Yuuri did it, it’d be so amazing because it means he has the confidence to be able to show Victor just how much he loves him with something other than skating. And Victor would be absolutely thrilled and probably even reduced to tears with how happy he was that Yuuri would ask. Look how happy he was at Yuuri’s (almost) proposal at the airport!

Then on the other hand, if Victor did it, it would give Yuuri some confidence because he obviously has self-doubt and anxiety and has worried about Victor leaving him. But if Victor proposed, imagine how Yuuri would feel! Victor chose him, Victor was the one to ask him to be with him for the rest of his life, and I think that’s beautiful.

How can I possibly choose? Can they just both propose at the same time?? Graah

Ra, holding His boundless love and affection for this universe: hey do you want this
me: what why what the hell am i supposed to-
Ra, dumping it all on me: too bad you dont get a choice

Ok but can you imagine, any of the setters just taming the fuck outta kyoutani. Like to the point of no return. At his class reunion no one even recognizes him if it wasn't for the fact that he never changed his hair. Kyou being at (setter of your choosing)'s beck and call (of course this is all bc he loves them so much!! not because whoever it is is abusive!!) just indulge me please (raccoon)

Buddy…. my man…. duuddee this is so my jam
Okay. Imma do three options here.


I think we all agree Oiks is a high maintenance dude. He asks for A Lot, but gives a lot in return too. And Kyou always does whatever he asks. He grumbles to himself and complains that Oiks is just using him for favors, but they both know it isn’t true. And he does it anyway, because he loves him. Plus he knows it’ll pay off in bed later


I’m going with this au thing I did a while ago, you don’t have to read it, the important thing is that they’re established.
Kentarou is seriously, hardcore protective of his tiny boyfriend. Not in a creepy “don’t talk to other dudes”, more like, won’t let anyone be mean to him, makes sure he eats well, that he isn’t cold, that he sleeps enough.

And naturally, he will do whatever Kenma asks of him. A warm bath? You got it. Massage? For sure. Order your favorite food? Okay, but you gotta eat the veggies too. Kyou will do anything he asks, just because Kenma is so precious to him and he loves him so much.


He has the ability to make Kyou do something for him without him ever realizing he did it for Suga. If Suga wants a hot bath, he’ll ask Kyou to prepare it “for the both of them”. If he wants food, he’ll offhandedly comment how hungry he is, and know that in half an hour or less, he will have something to eat.

He never even realizes how much Suga bosses him around until one day Yahaba comments on it and Kyou is like, “?? What? I almost never do anything for him, Suga is my life, I’m so lucky to have him, I really should do more for him.” He is so whipped he doesn’t even see the whip anymore.

Okay but now, after all of that… Is anyone on board with me for some OiSugaKenKyou where they all make him do little things for him then fight for his attention later when they want to make it up to him for bossing him around?

a few weeks ago tumblr user @dipierra made a post using slurs to make fun of a mentally ill character, and when i said something about it, they made fun of my autism, and went as far as to call me ableist for saying aaron tveit, a real person, is my autistic special interest

at the time i brushed that off because whatever, i’ve heard worse.. but it struck me today, what a fucked up and vile thing that was to say. autistic traits in general are already mocked, hated, perceived as “not normal,” etc, and special interests are the one thing that bring autistic people joy; basically he’s my favorite actor and i enjoy his work a lot. that’s literally it. autistic people face so much shit in this world, and our special interests are the thing we’re passionate about — and for @dipierra to attempt to make an autistic (and mentally ill) person feel like shit just for having a special interest…. it’s like next level pure evil. a not autistic person making an autistic person feel like shit by calling them “ableist” for just having an autistic trait.

like, it’d be the equivalent of calling a young lesbian “predatory” for thinking a girl in her class is pretty. making an oppressed person feel like a monster for something harmless that they’re already made fun of for on a societal level and even face violence for

and like, in the past i’ve said so much how people should respect aaron’s privacy and not objectify him and i’ve gotten hate for saying i was uncomfortable with people even tweeting my gifs at aaron. but yeah, i‘m the ableist one

anonymous asked:

But why do you like JJ so much, though? There are a bunch of characters who exhibit similar traits without being complete douchebags. (Honestly, though, what resonates? Are we missing something here? Because the part who doesn't wanna bash his face in wants to adopt him or some shit.)

i mean…… i just tend to like the more self-involved characters I guess? if anyone here is familiar with Love Live my fave girl from that is Nico who has a personality similar to JJ’s. i don’t really like characters who don’t have confidence unless there’s some other trait that endears me to them. i was actually a lil surprised Yuuri turned out to be my favorite character because of that!! (but i’m also really weak to dark-haired characters.)

i think it’s sweet that JJ cares so much about his fans when he could easily be like “i’m too good to notice you all” or something like that. and it’s not like anyone can say his confidence is misplaced when he has amazing skills. he just knows he’s good!!!

in general i think it has to do with the fact that confidence in general really attracts me about people so that carries over to fictional characters ahaha

mcdannosmonkey  asked:

First, thank you! I had felt like there was something strange about Mick when he spoke to Barry so I watched the three Invasion episodes and saw that was the only time he ever spoke to Barry and then realised that Barry was doing the same thing he almost did before Len took his place. Mick doesn't like that. He looks at Barry and he's reminded of Len. And yea, LoT is an episode number behind Arrow and The Flash. ;)

i’m gonna have to retag so much whoops. that’s a problem for future-me :)

And yeah i thought I’d misheard mick’s line the first time to be honest, because i was like “uh, hypocritical much, mick? you tried to sacrifice yourself for - ohhhhhh”

Seeing anyone choose to be a martyr and die for a team? Not what he’s here for, not when it hurts so much still. 

It sort of blew my mind when he said it too? Because like you mentioned, Mick didn’t interact with Barry at all during the crossover until then. Not even a “hey so you know my name now” from Barry, or a “life was simpler before you came along, Flash” until Mick just chimed in, in front of everyone, to tell Barry not to sacrifice himself. It was… heartwarming? In a way. Poignant, more like. But I’m glad that they at least acknowledged each other.

How did you create such an amazingly strong bond with Bubs?? I need help!!!! I don't think my horse trusts me very much because he can tell when I get frustrated, but it's sometimes so hard for me to not get upset with him and I don't know what to do! Can you offer any advice?

You see, there is no “bond”.  We have a positive relationship, yes, but we we don’t have a magical ~bond~ that never breaks regardless of the circumstances.  I don’t want to sucker anyone into thinking that I have achieved this higher level connection with Bubs.  Maybe is sounds like I’m downplaying our relationship, but when I see people, particularly NH trainers praised for having an “incredible connection” which their horses, all I see is a horse who has been scared and bullied into staying with and obeying their trainer no matter the training context.  Our relationship formula is simple: when he does things for me, he is rewarded.  Because of this, I firmly believe that he enjoys the majority of the make up of our training sessions, minus any time I push him past the comfort zone using pressure.  

Two hearts in doki doki panic…

A moment in Paper Mario: Colour Splash kinda ruined me because I massively overthink the Mario characters. Luigi’s goes incognito and hides in a bush so nobody will sees him at a show of the confirmed queer icon Birdo.

I hope one day Luigi feels brave enough to be out and proud like his idol.

This video was taken about a month ago by my husband during his first experience sharing me with another man. He had been begging me to do this for over ten years, knowing I had previous experience in the lifestyle. I resisted because I was worried he would look at me negatively afterward and it could effect the love he has for me. I finally agreed because I don’t like denying him and I want to be the one to fulfill all of his fantasies.
It turns out my worries were for nothing! 😊He was absolutely ecstatic to finally see his fantasy play out in real life.

Knowing he was watching me with someone else and feeling both of their hands on my body at the same time made my orgasms absolutely mind blowing. We have opened a new part of our sexual lives together and we’re both really excited to see what else happens. I love you so much honey! 💜Thank you for sharing me and loving me, hopefully we find our regular soon!😊😊😊😊Anyone interested??? @nearswisky

Helloooo!! So, I was wondering if you could do "Zip me" with Yuuri and Victor (Yuri on ice) or Sting and Rogue (Fairy Tail). Thank you so much!! If you don't like any of the pairings, then choose one yourself :)

I’ll try to write victuuri for the first time. This may be a little rusty!


“Victor!” Yuuri yelled, waving and running over to his coach, a smile on his face. He was going to place in the next competition, he just knew it!

“Yes?” Victor asked, and Yuuri turned around with a smile.

“Zip me up, if you don’t mind,” Yuuri said, and Victor was now exceedingly aware of Yuuri’s back muscles.

They were now toned because of the training, but had accrued many sinewy lines during the jumps. Victor wanted nothing more than to run his hands all over the lines and smell his love’s scent. Only then would they know the power of true love.

Victor was good at hiding a blush, so he waved off his thoughts and began to zip Yuuri up, running a fingertip over the exposed flesh before continuing.

“V-Victor!” Yuuri yelled, jumping back with a gasp. His fingertips were so warm and soft. He only wanted Victor to touch him.

“It’s alright, Yuuri. I didn’t want anyone else touching your back, you know,” Victor said with a wink, and his trainee blushed furiously. Victor simply twirled a finger in the air clockwise to signal Yuuri to turn.

Yuuri did so, but not without his blush still evident. Victor finished zipping him up and Yuuri turned with a confident smile at Victor.

“Never take your eyes off me,” Yuuri said, reaching in to hug his mentor. The hug was full of longing but had to be let go after the announcer signaled that the skate next would be the one before Yuuri’s. The man skated off, and Victor whistled when Yuuri turned to smile at him once more.

“Don’t worry, Yuuri,” Victor whispered to himself, “I wouldn’t dare.”


Aaaa there you go! I haven’t watched through the whole series yet so maybe this is really ooc? I dunno xD

Thanks for reading!

OK So This Preview

On the real, what irritates me about this is that Damon is fucking immortal so this whole, “he’ll do anything to avoid hell” is like … don’t lose your daylight ring, don’t get set on fire and don’t get staked? Like it’s pretty basic shit so his motivation is extremely weak. It’s also weak because Julie says “Cade, much like the devil, has created a place where you go when you are naughty and when you die” so he isn’t the devil, it isn’t just Hell, it’s a hell dimension, so who’s to say that Damon would actually go to that hell dimension if he dies? There’s no actual logic as to who goes there and who doesn’t. It’s also unoriginal within the series because we’ve dealt with hell before, Damon thought he was in his own personal hell in the Prison World and then he was actually sent to his own personal hell with the Phoenix Stone so is the fact that it’s a fiery pit the only thing that distinguishes that hell from Prison World hell and Phoenix Stone hell? Like it still isn’t clear why Damon is particularly frightened of this hell.

I saw quite a few comments on YouTube bashing Caroline for what she’s doing but like what do you expect her to do? She’s putting her children first and that means putting Stefan second because Stefan puts Damon first and they’re at cross purposes, like I would do the exact same thing. I do find it interesting that she has to essentially call of their relationship during this time of crisis because it doesn’t bode well for a strong foundation, like this would be a dealbreaker for me, not we’ll table this when it’s all over. And it actually could be interesting to see how far Stefan is willing to go for Damon as opposed to the tired how far Damon is willing to go to avoid a hell dimension that he probably won’t go to anyway since he’s immortal. Like taking away the fact that Josie and Lizzie are Caroline’s kids, they’re four year old girls. Would he be able to live with himself or with Damon if he chose Damon over children? It would be mildly impressive if this plot line was actually about Stefan’s journey to finding a line with Damon and just letting him go for the greater good because Damon is a constant in the terror and anxiety he inflicts on the core group.

I would still like to see a plot.

Dear diary,

I had such a good laugh today…but Rich didn’t. XD My dear friend Anna Friel sent Rich a picture today where you could see Anna as Chuck and me as Ned from Pushing Daisies. And over the pic were hundreds of love stamps. 

She sent it to him with the comment “that’s what it’s all about”. I had to grin so much when I saw it, because I knew it was a little side blow to Rich’s grumpyness of the last days. I told her about it and she knew that I didn’t like it. So basically it was another little reminder for Rich that he should be less moody and more loving towards me. 

Actually it wasn’t necessary anymore because Rich is again the beautiful, charming, thoughful and attentive man with whom I fell in love and who he is most of the year. But I still was very thankful for her support and Rich took this also very serious because he listens to Anna and knows that she’s always right. 

And that’s why I got flowers and chocolate today… what a victorious day!!! :D

hey riley! was wondering if you could help me out with something? over the past couple years I've been kinda questioning my gender identity (but like, very low key questioning), and i don't know whether im non-binary or just a cis girl who likes being referred to as they/them or he/him because i don't experience dysphoria, some days i feel like wearing super feminine stuff and some days i wear very masc stuff (but still with makeup??)? if you have the time to respond, then thank u so much!

oh i don’t think you’re going to like my answer :P basically, i can’t make that call for you; it entirely depends on how you feel!

maybe you are a cis girl who just likes more masc stuff, that’s totally cool! and if you’re cool with she/her and being called a woman and feel comfortable in women’s spaces and stuff like that, maybe that’s your thing.

or maybe you’re non-binary and don’t feel 100% comfortable calling yourself either a binary man or a binary woman. or maybe you’re agender and don’t feel like the concept of gender applies to you at all. or maybe you’re genderfluid and you feel like more of a woman some days, more of a man some days, and more non-binary other days. or maybe you’re a demi-girl and feel partially like a girl but also something else, like maybe something more gender neutral.

there are A LOT of possible identities, and without knowing what it’s like inside your head, i can’t tell you which is right for you. ultimately, it will be whatever words make you the most comfortable, what pronouns make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, and where you really feel at home.

if someone calls you cis, do you cringe a little bit? if someone mistakes you for a cis boy, does it make you feel good? or you just kinda chill with whatever? these are little things you might want to look out for, cause often i think it’s in your instantaneous reactions to things like that you can kinda figure out how you feel, since it’s a more instinctual reaction than sitting and thinking about it for hours.

and there’s no rush! this process can take years for some folks – gender is always clear-cut and obvious. but when you eventually do figure it out, you should know that whatever you identify as is perfectly valid. just because you don’t experience dysphoria, that doesn’t mean you can’t identify as trans or non-binary or agender or anything like that. some people have very mild dysphoria or none at all.

and though your gender expression can certainly help hint towards what your gender might be, it can also be different from your identity. guys can wear makeup. nb folks can wear makeup. women can wear makeup. don’t let the fact that you like feminine things like that hold you back from exploring your identity.

so whatever your gender is that you end up figuring out is how you feel – cis, trans, nb, genderfluid, etc. – you’re lovely and you’re gonna be just fine. <3

hope that was at least a little helpful!
