Do you think Raven, at this point, has a chance at redemption?

I don’t, not to the point of like…Ilia where she becomes full good guy. 

Raven has killed a lot of people, and the circumstances surrounding the death of the Spring Maiden are incredibly shady and messed up. 

At this point I think the best Raven can get is self-sacrifice while finally staying strong through her fear as she saves her daughter. 

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

I do not read motivational blogs for writers anymore. 

I used to and they did not motivate me, they stressed me out. 

I read “To be a successful writer, you need to write every single day” and then beat myself up when I did not write on one particular day or “Good writers always start by writing the very last scene first” and then felt like the worst writer ever because I never do that. 

Ironically, all that those “inspiring” quotes did was inspiring the little negative voice in my head to constantly whisper “I suck at this. I should just give up. I’ll never be as good as all the others.”.

I do not doubt that there are people who adore those blogs, who feel that reading them really helps them and improves their writing. The reason I tell you this story is not because I want to discourage anyone from reading them. 

My point is: 

- Something that helps one person may not be helpful at all for someone else. 

- Something that is bad for one person may be great for someone else.

I believe that this applies in every area of life, including lgbt+-specific ones. 

Some Examples: 

“All trans boys want to wear binders (and if you don’t, you are likely fake)” - No. Some trans boys want to wear binders, some trans boys don’t want or need to. Both is okay! 

“It’s always best to come out in a face-to-face conversation” - No. For some people it is, for other people a call or letter is easier or safer. Both is okay! 

Advice that uses words like everyone, nobody, always, never…is usually over-generalized. We are not all the same, and so there’s no one piece of advice that applies to all of us. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

I’m not sure if this really counts, but it might be a good story.

Today, I felt a bit restless. I have been sitting at my computer working non-stop for the past 5 days for an animation deadline. While I’ve been eating regularly and going for a walk at least once a day, I am still. A little bit at the end of my rope.

I wanted to try something today. Something that I think, only I could do. A little voice appeared in my head, saying, “You won’t do it. You don’t have the guts.”

I got the can of Vegemite out, unscrewed the lid, and grabbed a teaspoon. I plunged it in, looked the voice dead in the eye…

And put the whole damn thing in my mouth. I swallowed it in under 2 minutes. I didn’t spit a single thing out.

I’m not really sure what I accomplished here. And I can’t really feel the inside of my mouth now.

But I feel like a God.

      You’re going to have a great time. You’re going to have a great time. You’re going to have a great time. The little voice in Anna’s head chanted over and over as the teacher stood in front of her bathroom mirror and finished applying her mascara. 

      She stood in a long-sleeved, cowl-neck magenta sweater dress, simple black tights, dark blue ankle boots, and her charm bracelet. At first she had thought to braid her hair back and twist it in a bun ontop her head, yet she then decided to let it loose, since she knew Kristoff loved it when she wore her hair down. Turning away from her reflection, Anna looked down at her phone and turned it on to check the time. 

       6:55 PM. Five more minutes until Kristoff was to come pick her up.

      “You look beautiful!”

sinnamon-bum reblogged your audio post “seeing as a couple people have asked me about it now, i thought i’d record a little example of the voice i do when…”

#he’s so nervous and I???#LOVE HIM????#omigosh#that’s an awesome character voice#I wish I had the whole story for this campaign sometimes#I already know from the snippets I get that Erwyn would be my fave#He seems like a proper disaster boy

two things!!

1) idk if you know of the @friendshipcampaign blog where i post weekly session recaps? they obviously don’t encompass everything that goes on but for people who are curious about the story and the characters they provide a bit  more than just the vague posts the players/DM make on our personal blogs

2) ohmygosh i’m so honored to hear everything you said here. he is absolutely a proper disaster boy, even if his particular methods of self-destruction are perhaps a little more internal (low self-esteem and neglecting his own needs and mental health in favor of others…..) but i love him deeply and hearing other people say that they do too is like. the best thing ever

Small gems like her are as easy to lose as a cell phone, but instead of just getting a new one from the store you have to snatch it out of the air, lock it in your bathroom, and re-indoctrinate its entire system of beliefs

“I like your shirt” a sweet innocent compliment on their first meeting that meant differently few months later.

“Thanks, Camz. Will you stay in my room after the concert?” she didn’t need to think twice. The pout on Lauren’s face was enough reason to submit.

“You bet. See you later, Lolo. Pizza and cuddles yeah?” Falling in love with Lauren Michelle Jauregui is the best thing that has happened to her life.

[Verse 1]

Dirty tissues, trust issues

Glasses on the sink, they didn’t fix you

Lonely pillows in a stranger’s bed

Little voices in my head

Secret keeping, stop the bleeding

Lost a little weight because I wasn’t eating

All the souls that I can’t listen to, to tell the truth

“It’s beautiful up here” she doesn’t regret following Lauren’s lead. The panoramic view of the city lights from the hotel’s rooftop was worth all the sneaking and facing her fear of heights.

“But not as beautiful as you” it was already romantic as it is. Hearing Lauren’s raspy voice saying those words was the cherry on top. Slowly, she found herself leaning in with the other girl mirroring her act. The first time their lips met felt like forever in a lifetime. There were fireworks and butterflies and all the sweet things that they talk about.

“I love you, Lauren” she finally confessed.

“I love you too, Camz” it was as if those five words were enough to get them by anything.

[Chorus 1]

Loving you was young, and wild, and free

Loving you was cool, and hot, and sweet

Loving you was sunshine, safe and sound

A steady place to let down my defenses

But loving you had consequences

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU’RE DATING LAUREN?” it wasn’t supposed to happen that way. She has imagined it before, telling their parents, but neither of them imagined getting walked in between making out.

“Sinu please—” knowing her mom, nothing would calm her down until she was satisfied with all her words.

“Mantente fuera de esto, Lauren (Stay out of this, Lauren)” one stern look from Sinu and Lauren found herself backing away. “Camilita, we need to leave. Ahora! (now!)”

[Verse 2]

Hesitation, awkward conversation

Running on low expectation

Every siren that I was ignoring

I’m paying for it

“This camren thing is getting out of hand. Your PR team is not supposed to clean up after your mess. They’re out there to promote the brand. I’m left with no choice in this” getting called in by both EPIC and SYCO management was something they expected after her mom’s meltdown. What happens after, that they can’t predict.

“We need you both to sign these” just like that a thick pile of paper were laid in front of them. They didn’t need another contract. “That is an NDA. No one, by all means, should know about you two. Along with that are clauses that indicates the limitation of your interaction. Basically your code of conduct in public be it physical or in social media. Come on what are you waiting for? Sign those” she wanted to protest. She needed to protest. Their relationship can’t be dictated by these terms decided by the management. “Oh and your parents have already read and signed those”

“Here” her girlfriend, she’s not sure about that yet, spoke for the first and only time in that meeting. Her eyes almost bulged out of her eyes once she saw the neat signature printed on the page. She examined all pages and saw it was also signed. A part of her feels betrayed. Why didn’t she fight for her? Why didn’t she fight for them?

[Chorus 1]

Loving you was young, and wild, and free

Loving you was cool, and hot, and sweet

Loving you was sunshine, safe and sound

A steady place to let down my defenses

But loving you had consequences

“Why? Why did you sign?” she could not just not chase her. There was no way she’d give up on them. “Lauren goddamnit! Answer me!”

“Because it’s a lost battle, Camz! We can’t just pretend that contract isn’t there. We can’t pretend we still can happen. We don’t have a choice!” seeing Lauren broken, broke her heart a million fold.

“We do. Baby, we do. I choose you. Please choose us too” she took the other girl’s hand and slowly soothed it with hers as if pleading her to stay.

“I can’t. I’m sorry, Camz. I can’t do this anymore.” If Lauren’s tears weren’t an indication that she was taking it hard too, Camila would’ve believed that this was what her girlfriend wanted.

“Then you have to say it.” she braved.

“It’s over” those two words rung louder than a church bell and it echoed in her head for those onwards. She walked away fast, thanking heavens she at least didn’t trip.

[Bridge]

No, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Said no, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

I, no, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, mhm

“Wow. Look at this Dinah, ‘I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it’ but is she really? She’s proud now? Why can’t she be proud when we were still together?” invisible smoke were going out of her ears and nose. Lauren just labelled herself to people in an open letter. Well, she knew her ex-girlfriend were always into dramatics.

“Maybe she changed?” Dinah replied in the most careful manner afraid of hurting her best friend’s feelings.

“Maybe” she took a deep breath with the saddest thoughts in mind because she knew who Lauren did this for. Well she knew the people Lauren did this for. For herself and for…”for Lucy”

[Chorus 2]

Loving you was dumb, dark, and cheap

Loving you will still take shots at me

Loving you was sunshine, but then it poured

And I lost so much more than my senses

‘Cause loving you had consequences

“You’re leaving that soon? Camilla, what about the band? Why now? Why so sudden?” the girls knew she was leaving but they never figured out when. Even the fans knew long before that it was only a matter of when and how.

“I can’t do all these anymore” she couldn’t believe she’d be the one saying those words now.

“Camz, don’t go. Please” she looked at Lauren’s green eyes, those eyes that she loved so much. The old spark she used to see in her orbs were gone. This wasn’t her Lauren anymore. This Lauren belonged to someone else.

“Tell me, Lauren. Give me a good reason to stay.” silence. She was met with nothing but silence.

“I’m—I’m sorry” Falling in love with Lauren Michelle Jauregui was the most painful thing that has happened to her life because as much as she enjoyed loving her, it came with the most painful consequences.

[Outro]
