reminder 36582 that westallen is so important. not just cause they are a pure, healthy relationship who are soulmates in every timeline/universe etc. but because they are the MAIN interracial couple on a pretty racist network on the highest rated show. you can be pressed about it all you want and wish barry was in love with your white fave but that’ll never be the case. years from now it won’t matter why you disliked them together. all people will remember was that the main white character was in love with a black woman. and that candice patton as iris west created opportunities for other WOC (i.e flash movie). that.will because representation matters. and more shows ought to do the same. 

The beauty and grace that is Westallen 🙌🏾

Guys I’ve never been so obsessed and so freaking in love with a couple like Westallen. I literally cannot watch a single second of their scenes without crying and screaming. We are blessed with cuteness and beauty and grace that is Westallen and I just cannot handle it. I love both of them as individuals but they together… oh boy it’s all I want in my life because they are literally everything 😍😍 I can hear my heart break when I see how much these two are loving each other and honestly if you don’t agree you can fight me because I’m gonna defend them till my last breath (which I have no doubt will be because of them; let’s be honest I died a couple of times in the past watching them and that’s how I would wanna go 😂). Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels like my soul and heart are getting ripped out every time I see them and loving it because they are literally goals 🙌🏾❤️ I’m thankful that the writers gave (and still giving) us this healthy relationship and I’m thankful for the fandom cuz no matter where you’re from or who you are the love we feel for Westallen connects us and we would pretty much start a war if anything would happen to them 😂😘  P.S. they are so sweet I can’t even choose a gif without wanting to cry ❣️🤷🏾‍♀️💁🏾

I adore Gillian. I have adored her from literally day 1. It took me a little longer to warm to David but I now adore him equally.
I make no secret of the fact I love to see them together. It makes me smile and does funny squishy things to me that makes me believe that love (however you interpret it) can last a lifetime.
We are all responsible to ourselves - the way we view things, the way we justify our thoughts and feelings on any given subject and how we verbalise those same thoughts and feelings.
Free speech is a wonderful thing until it crosses the line to become hurtful and judgemental. Then,as adults we should have the ability to stop and think if our words will have a negative impact. Sometimes we open our mouths and blurt something out we wish we could take back; we are all human.
But when you write something vicious it becomes far more insidious - because it is more of a process and is in no way as impulsive as when angry words are spoken.
I’ve seen some ugly things written tonight.
It is inexcusable and I feel desperetely sorry for Gillian.
Whatever your personal feelings are about this whole situation, no one - not you, not me, not any person in this crazy fandom - has the right to stand as judge, jury and executioner on another persons life choices.
I repeat - I adore Gillian and could not, in any way tear her to pieces over any issue because it would make me feel shit. There is no joy to be gained in contributing to a campaign of angry words.
Take a deep breath, watch some Kimmel or Paley or any one of thousands of moments where she has made you smile or laugh. Then think about what’s important.

#This rambling load of shit was brought to you at 3am after a 10 hour shift. If it makes no sense I apologise. But it’s made me feel better.

anonymous asked:

hi sorry don't wanna be rude but can i ask why you ship karamel?

don’t worry, you’re not rude or anything lol. I never know how to answer that kind of questions tbh. I really like both the characters as individuals (Mon-El is the one who kinda hooked me up on the show tbr) I really like their dynamic since the beginning. I think Melissa & Chris have an amazing chemistry. and I’m totally a sucker for the fuckboy trying to be good - for himself but also for his lady haha (eyes to Killian and Bellamy and Oliver ohoh) I just love them together <3 and I find it incredible that two cupcakes like them had a freaking hot make-out session lol


“You can’t do this to me!” You yell at your older brother Kian. Kian was three years older than you. His best friend was sitting across from you. Jc was like a big brother to you too except you had the biggest crush on him.

“You can’t just live up here to sleep all day and party all night. I told you Y/N, you have to get a job or create something. Mom and Dad will make you live at home with them. It’s been five months, you need to figure it out.” He says.

“They can’t make me do anything. I’m 18.”

“Oh yeah, tell that to them and watch how they stop paying for things. Get it together sis.” Kian laughs.

“Y/N, you are like a sister to me. I love living with you, but you have to get a job or do something. Go to school. Just do something. We don’t want to see you going back to live with your parents.” Jc says. The words ‘you are like a sister to me’ hurt you more than you thought they would. You never thought you had a chance with Jc, but he wasn’t supposed to say that to your face. You got up and ran upstairs slamming the door shut. You just wanted to be alone.

1. Not all love will be good love but it will all teach you something.

2. Stop overthinking because it’s not suppose to be that hard. If you love someone you tell them and you go from there.

3. Everyone shows their love differently. Just because they don’t show it the same way you do doesn’t mean they don’t care just as much.

4. If someone ever makes you feel unworthy of love, leave them. Get out as quick as you can and never look back. You deserve to be loved by someone who appreciates you without a doubt.

5. Sometimes it’s better just not to say anything. Take an hour and think about it. Some things aren’t worth the fight.

6. Love is a decision you have to make every single day.

7. Don’t compare your love story to someone else’s. All that matters is that everyone is happy together. How you get there is not important.

8. There are going to be lots of people that bring you flowers. Wait for the person who plants a whole garden for you to grow together.

9. Never forget about the little things that make your relationship special.

10. Never stop loving. Even when your heart is breaking, believe in love. Because it is coming, and when it finds you it will be amazing. I promise.

I’m trying to get over you, I’m trying so goddamned hard. And some mornings I wake up and think, yes, maybe I finally am free. Free from my echoing thoughts of you. Free from the constant battle of loving you and losing you. But then other mornings I wake up and all I can think about is how your eyes look with sunlight in them and how your face looks just before you break into a smile.
Maybe we aren’t meant to be together, maybe not now, maybe not ever.
And I don’t wanna have a single grain of hope, because blessed are those with no expectations.
But sometimes I think against my own will that what if we break all the laws?
Maybe we’ll forget each other soon but what if we meet again someday in the future, and in one look we’ll feel the ache in our hearts of our incomplete love, and maybe then I’ll be right for you, and you’ll be right for me?
Maybe we are meant to be together, maybe not now, but maybe someday.

#you can literally see the moment they notice  each other #they stop whatever they’re doing #they froze still #the world just stops for both of them #and you can see the happiness on their faces when they realize they’re staring at the love of their lives #it just hits them how far they’ve come #how lucky they are to have each other #you see the realization hitting them #they’re together now #and they’ll always will be #they made it #I’m bursting into tears as I see them realize they’ll have an entire lifetime to prove the other how much they love them #this scene is everything

Fall in love with the way the Suns rays hit her eyes in a way that makes them look like honey on a summers day. With the way she giggles when you kiss her neck because it tickles. With how excited she gets when she talks about her passions and how her eyes glow and her voice gets all high pitched and happy. With the way she holds you when you feel like the world is falling to pieces and tells you that together you can weather even the toughest storm. With how when she holds your hand she rubs her thumb along the side of yours and you feel little goosebumps erupting on your skin like tiny volcanoes. With how when she kisses you it feels like you’ve come home, how the tiny butterflies in your stomach still flutter to the beat of your heart every time her soft cherry lips touch yours. With the way her eyes flutter as she drifts off to sleep and how she often utters your name in the midst of her far off dreams. With the way her mouth curls up into a crooked smile meant just for you and the way her laugh still echoes through your body even when she’s not there and how her heart holds so much love that it spills from her eyes in the form of precious stars that you hold inside the palms of your hands the way she holds your heart in hers.

How to Create a Winning Relationship

1. Don’t rush things. Take the time to really get to know each other.

2. Focus on positivity rather than negativity. Getting angry quickly or being harsh and critical will undermine and ruin even strong relationships. In contrast, being kind and gentle will help develop love.

3. Appreciate the little things the other person does. Don’t overlook their efforts; don’t just expect their help.

4. Enjoy the ways you’re different – and not clones of one another. It makes things interesting (and creates healthy space).

5. Don’t get into a rut so that you’re bored when you’re together. Keeping doing something different, or keep trying something new.

6. Learn how to be listener, someone who’s understanding, and helps their partner open up and share what’s bothering them.

7. Be loyal and committed, so trust can be established - that helps you both feel safe, and it will grow a strong, deep love.

Some thoughts on the Maheswaran mother-daughter relationship

Connie looked so much like Dr. Maheswaran in this episode.

It’s adorable because in the canon time of the show, she’s picked up on her mother’s mannerisms in the way that a decade of living with her did not. It’s shows how much they’ve grown together as a family, and how their relationship has changed.

Considering this was how she looked in her first appearance:

There’s a marked change not only in design but also in her expressions.

And it’s been hinted at before, but in this scene, she so explicitly worries about her mother the way her mother worries about her. It’s very touching, especially because we know they started out caring about each other but not understanding one another. Because you  can love someone and never try to understand them. It leads to a lot of conflict but both parties can still come out of it feeling like they did what was “best” for the other.

Connie used to think it was better that her mother knew nothing so the latter wouldn’t worry about her. And Dr. Maheswaran wanted to be on top of everything so that Connie would have an easier life. 

What we learn from them is that to be able to love someone better, we open up to them and let them open up to us. Connie used to act as though her parents were infallible, or at the least, able to manage themselves. Over time, and in this episode, she’s shown to be worried about them because she knows they’re human beings too. They can get hurt, make mistakes, and put themselves in danger.

Knowing these things puts the other person in perspective. It makes their place in our lives mean more. And it makes it harder to take the people we love for granted.

So I would say Connie and her mother interact a lot more now. They probably talk about each other’s days. Notice how even Dr. Maheswaran talked about everything that happened to her prior to picking Connie up. She believed her daughter deserved an explanation. And that’s a far cry from the mother who would proudly bring out the “Because I said so,” and “We’re doing this because we love you,” cards in Fusion Cuisine.

Not everyone has this experience with their parents. Sometimes things just happen to drive parents and children apart. But in their case it worked out, and now they each have one more person who will always be there for them.

When Connie told her mother that Steven just came from outer space, there was no incredulous reaction. Only an, “Oh?” in an interested and calm tone. 

They’re both trying. And I’m certain they still have their share of disagreement, but it’s dealt with in a much healthier way now.

Saw this on Facebook the other day, and had to post it. Many people need to realize that it’s not about “maybe we’ll end up together”, it’s a matter of whether you want to love that person through every god damn thing known to man. It’s whether you want love that person on their hardest days or their best days. It’s whether you want to continue getting your shit together with them. It’s whether you love them and all that is them, no matter what their thoughts may be at times, what their past is, or how successful they are right now in this moment. For me, I love my girl no matter what the fuck her past may be, no matter what the fuck her thoughts may be, no matter how fucking good her days may or may not be, no matter what the fuck it is, I still love her with all I can possibly fucking hold.

I don’t fall for cute texts or late phone calls anymore, because I know those can be done with no feeling behind them. Show me you love me when we’re together. Keep a tight grip on my hand walking down the sidewalk, brush small strands of hair away from my face, know how I like my coffee in the mornings. Because after all, I’m in love with you not my phone screen.

every day i pick up a pen and paper and try to put together a well worded letter about how you made me feel, and every time, i rip the letter into a million pieces and throw it away; tell me, how am i supposed to put a well worded letter together when i can’t even pick up the broken parts of me and place them back together after you left?

Reasons to love Battle Couples:

-couples that kick ass together, stay together

-you can get those awesome duel fight scenes where someone is shooting someone else while being thrown in the air by the other part of the OTP

-It means you have a reason to write practice sparring fics which almost always devolve into makeouts, ah yes, the perfect lead in

-helping each other improve by giving each other tips and tricks

-competitive battle couples ranking how well the other does in battle

-when one gets injured, the other goes badass to save them, they will fight the enemy, they will fight the enemy’s enemy, they will fight themselves

-one part of the battle couple having to stay behind and waiting for the other to come home, nervous and on edge, and vise versa

-being shit at each other’s weapons if they switch. Or being really good at each other’s weapons. Pick your poison.

-Flirting in the middle of a fight. Because what’s more hot then kicking a baddie in the face then going “so babe, did it hurt when you fell from heaven” “that is a terrible joke” “I think it’s at least a 5/10″

I just love Battle Couples. 

I swear being heartbroken is the worst feeling. To myself anyways. Your chest feels like it’s on fire, then its like your ribs have punctured your lungs because you cant breathe, no matter how much you think about nothing, to try and numb the pain of thinking of them, your thoughts creep up on you.
—  This is life until you put yourself back together. Please take your time.
The world isn’t filled with ‘haters’ and ‘toxic people.’ It’s filled with people who are hurting and trying, ineffectively, to give themselves some relief. So distance yourself if you must, but try to do it with empathy, not judgment. The only cure for ‘haters’ is love, so try to show them more kindness than they showed you. This is how we can slowly make the world a more loving place.

To be perfectly honest, I’ve noticed way less people trying to deny Victuri ever since episode 9, especially when compared to episode 7 (despite the fact that that was when they became canon).

Apart from the fact that whether the kiss happened or not was a point of debate (and it was a kiss, but to be fair, I can sort of understand if some people didn’t see it), I think it might all come down to the idea that true, tangible relationships don’t need visible, explicit kisses to justify them, that a single airport scene can convey all the relevant emotions, that what truly matters and what truly shows the connection of two people is what they say and how they act around each other (especially in times of trial) and not simply how and when their lips touch.

I think it shows that deep, serious relationships like that can be felt even without seeing the couple properly kiss, or say “I love you” or have sex or lay in bed together.

Don’t get me wrong, I still think that the kiss from ep 7 was hugely important, and what I’m saying here actually supports it - they didn’t need to show their lips touch to get the message across.

Same was the case with the airport scene in episode 9. They never said “I love you” or “I want to spend the rest of my life with you”, but those feelings got across anyway. We all understood it, we all felt it.

And the best thing is that this is true also for people who had doubts regarding Victor and Yuuri’s relationship. It wasn’t just the people who already believed they loved each other who felt it, it was anyone who was open-minded enough to allow a small possibility that hey, they might actually really love each other. And it all got across in the end. It convinced the people who weren’t entirely sure how to feel about their relationship and I think that is impressive to say the very least.

I just want to praise Yuri on Ice’s direction. I believe making people see things in certain ways and feel certain things is already a huge feat. Add to that the ability to do that without ever being explicit or direct about and I think it would be fair to call this a high form of art, also known as amazing story-telling.

“Hey Mr. Trustfund Kid, for some reason my fans want to see us together, so for five seconds let’s call a truce so I can post this real quick.”
“I don’t see the point–”
“Say cheese!”
“–why do people say cheese? How about Elizabeth instead?”
“oh my god”

These two are my absolute fave from Mystic Messenger, and I really wanted to try drawing them taking a selfie together…maybe during party preparations? Ehehe. ❤️ Anyway I love these two and I love this game and I don’t even play otome okay? 😂 Hope you like ~

Peter Maximoff and Kurt Wagner: Why They’d be CUTE AS HELL Together

Ok, ok, I realize it’s a rarepair.  But hear me out.

  • Kurt’s teleportation is a really good counter to Peter’s speed.  Like, Peter can go as fast as he wants but Kurt’s just gonna be gone before he gets there.  They would have epic games of tag.  New students would watch in slightly concerned awe, especially when Peter manages to grab Kurt’s tail just before he teleports to the roof.  Charles is impressed because Kurt’s teleporting reflexes have never been better and someone Peter is managing to go even faster???
  • Kurt’s first introduction to American music was some earsplitting metal that Scott was listening to while working on his motorcycle and having an Angstfest.  Peter reassures him that there is much better music out there and they spend a whole day just going through Peter’s collection of records and tapes.
  • They watch soccer together.  Kurt’s way more into it than Peter (Alles für Deutschland!  Alles für Deutschland!) but Peter enjoys rooting for the opposing and/or losing team just to bug Kurt.  They both shit all over England, much to Charles’ disappointment.
  • Peter, rebel that he is, goes up to Canada to steal contraband Kinder Eggs for Kurt because a) it’s Kurt’s favorite candy and b) it’s a chocolate egg with a surprise toy inside how cool is that what asshole made these illegal in America.
  • Look they’d just be really cute ok.
  • Also
  • We could call the ship nightsilver
