YOU MANY NEVER KNOW WHO THEY ARE FRIENDS WITH

Honestly I’m so thankful for the emergency services and their ability to react fast and stop the dangerous situations like that seen in Westminster today from developing further than needed. I know so many family and friends who work near where the attack was undertaken, including my dad and my thoughts go out to the family of those lost today.

rant about thai k-idols

okay so,,, i’ve seen A LOT of ppl using a thai idol’s real name as if it’s normal (esp in fanfics) and as a person who grew up in thailand and is thai,,, that is actually very awkward. a thai person is born w a first name, last name, and nick name. the nick name is the name you will be called by throughout your whole life and many of your friends would prob never know your full name tbh. your full name is only used in official papers and business type situations. for example, in school, the teacher would call you by your first name and your nickname (it depends what they’re saying,, if it’s roll call or smth like that it’s your first name!!) i’m going to use ten as an example, so bare with me. if you’re friends w ten, you would never call him ‘chittaphon’. not even his family would call him ‘chittaphon’. it’s really just used for MAINLY official papers. please just call your thai idol by their nickname (which is most likely their stage name). i’m sure this is hard to understand bc different culture,, but i’m honestly rly uncomfortable w it??? it’s okay that you’ve been ignorant to this, but i hope you guys learned something new!! feel free to msg me for any questions!

too many white ppl not wanting to speak up bc they’re scared of bein ostracized by their white friends…and u know what i’m really sick of? white ppl who never bring up issues on their own. they wait till all the people of color on their twitter feed, on tumblr are discussing something and post a shitty rephrasing of a post a person of color already made and better to seem involved. they try to rehash a point that has been made millions of times to the point where it’s common knowledge and play this off like they’re accomplishing something. you don’t have to teach poc about racism. we fucking know all about it.

y’all are silent 364 days of the year but then when poc are upset about something you decide to chime in with your obligatory white two cents that accomplishes nothing. and you won’t bring this stuff up in front of other white people either. not ever. you’ll listen to the white people around you being openly hateful and you’ll keep your mouth shut. all this talking like you care and then you refuse to confront your racist and hateful white friends because you don’t want them to exclude you or get mad at you. if you care about us why the fuck you want friends like that in the first place? 

we can tell when you’re posting shit just to seem like “one of the good ones” and we can tell when you post stuff bc you’re scared the big bad people of color will come for you if you don’t and you’re just trying to cover your ass

So I actually have a story behind this gif….when I was still new to the fandom side of the internet I saw this exact gif post and I though “why does anyone even care about these so called Internet friends? There is NO WAY you can be close to people you have never met…how can you even trust them?” But now, many months later, I have a close Internet friend who means more to me than many things in life and I don’t know where I’d be without her….I hope someday I will be able to hug her and tell her how much she means to me…

One in a Hundred

Friend: I just don’t get why some schools can require kids get certain vaccines.
Me: There are many reasons. One of the reasons is herd immunity. To protect kids who can’t get vaccines. Like ones with leukemia.
Friend: But that’s only several kids out of a hundred.
Me: Think of peanut allergies. Maybe it’s just one kid in the class, but we still don’t bring peanuts to class for that reason.
Friend: You know, that’s never really made sense to me either. Why does everyone else have to give up peanuts for one kid?
Me: Is it that big of a sacrifice to not have peanuts during the school day?
Friend: I guess not. But my point is that if something only affects one out of a hundred people, why do we make a change?
Me: Fair thought. Let’s think of it this way. Let’s say you’re walking down a street with one hundred people, okay?
Friend: Okay.
Me: And you see one suddenly topple over, and he’s unable to breath. No pulse.
Friend: Okay.
Me: Do you try to resuscitate him?
Friend: Yeah!
Me: Why? He’s just one in hundred.
Friend: But that- I don’t see how…
Me:
Friend: I think I get it.

Dear god, THIS.

THIS IS WHY you can never ship Joker and Harley to me EVER again. When she arrived on The Animated Series, it was in a fun, gangster moll style. But we know what happened since. And I’ve had too many friends that have been through similar situations.

I wish I knew who to credit for this. In this ONE panel that DC didn’t even pen, everything that’s been shared in confidence has come back. So DON’T romanticize Joker and Harley in the future. Because that’s not love, and when you look at it honestly, it never was.

Camille on her Instagram account: “You turned my world upside down. Your fire is something I had never experienced before. You lived with such passion, loved with such passion. My best lover, my best friend. It’s tragic because we all think of you as a superhero but even in your last moments you were heroic. I am beyond honored to have spent these moments with you. Your family that I consider family, your friends that have become best friends. Thank you Dylan. Anyone who has ever had the honor of meeting you knows how fucking gentle, sensitive, beautiful a person you are. You’ve inspired so many and will keep on doing so. Dylan, I love you forever.”

RIP Dylan Rieder

I STILL CANT BELIEVE ITS BEEN TWO WEEKS SINCE THIS MAGICAL MOMENT….

I feel so many emotions. I feel so grateful but yet in shock because I never thought I would be able to say I met Taylor swift. My idol, my friend, someone who I have idolized for 7 years wanted to meet me...I still can’t wrap my head around it. So many wonderful things have happened to me in the past almost year. I feel so thankful. I hope Taylor knows that I’ll never forget all the wonderful things she has done for me and I’ll be by her side always and forever. I cant wait to see what the next era brings. I am so excited. I love you forever Taylor, and I’ll never forget what you said to me…’’ I waited so long to meet you, I’m so glad you are here. I love your posts, you are so joyful and positive. Thank you for supporting me.’’ I WANTED TO DIE BECAUSE YOU ARE SO WONDERFUL AND WHEN YOU TALKED TO ME YOU ONLY LOOKED AT ME. That meant so much to me. And then you said ‘’LOVE YOU!’’ When I walked out, like you were sad I was leaving and never wanted me to forget that you love me. Thank you for always checking up on me & being the sunshine on my cloudy days. Because of you I now will never let my anxiety disorder define who I am…ever because you remind me that I am not my disorder and I am more than that. You remind me on my worst days that I am something and not nothing. You remind me on days when I feel like crawling in a hole that I need to get up and be strong. You remind me that I can do anything I put my mind to & you remind me that there are angels in this world AKA YOU.  I MISS YOU AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON <3 


FOREVER & ALWAYS GOT YOUR BACK! <3


10/22/16 hands down the best day ever because of you :)

Probably some off-screen moment
  • Janna: Hey, Star. Can I tell you something real quick?
  • Star: Sure, what is it Janna?
  • Janna: No matter what happens, I've never had a friend like you.
  • Star: Well, of course you haven't! How many people do you know who can summon a narwhal blast with a wave of a wand?
  • Janna: Yes, but that's not what I meant. I mean that not many others like me so much because of my interests; it scares them away most of the time. For the longest time, I was the "creep" or the "weirdo," and that kind of saddens me. But when I'm doing weird stuff with you like escaping D10 or messing with Marco, a little bit of me accepts the fact that I will never be like everyone else. You inspire me to be me! And for that, you're my best friend and thank you.
  • Star: *wide-eyed in awe, dropped jaw, complete silence*
  • Janna: Let's keep this between you and me, plea-
  • Star: *hugs Janna in a blink of an eye, then releases her, smirking*
  • Janna: *wide-eyed in awe, dropped jaw, complete silence*
  • Star: I guess you're not used to hugs. ;P

Thin girls are always like “Learn to love yourselves!! Only you determine your own worth!!!!! I love my thighs even though I have cellulite!!!”

WHEN IN REALITY they’ve never dealt with being too fat to go shopping with your friends, crying in stores because you can’t zip up the largest size they have, dealing with the terrible looks from people in public who see you eating something that’s not a salad, walking past a group of 12 year olds and knowing that they’re laughing at the way your body moves, not having enough fucking MONEY to buy decent plus sized clothing (look @ you torrid), knowing that the fucking world was not created with your size in mind, among many other things.

“But I got told to eat a burger once and it’s the same thing!”

No. It’s fucking. Not.

I’m not saying that thin people CANT be a part of the body positivity movement. We need you to help. But posts of stereotypically pretty, thin girls in their underwear, advocating for all of us to say fuck what the world thinks, when the world is already ON their side and helping them, doesn’t really help the movement at all.

Society is not on my side in this instance. And undoing that socialization is not as fucking easy as a simple sentence. Trust me, I’ve already said fuck society. The difference between us is that when a thin person lives by that, then it’s awesome. When a fat person lives by it, then it’s just another case of a disgusting whale who should be ashamed.

There’s a privilege in thin-ness. At least acknowledge it.

EDIT: this DOES NOT apply to body dysmorphia and EDs.
21st century headcanons: les amis and social media

enjolras somehow manages to turn every social media platform into an opportunity for angry political rants (”enjolras, you know people don’t usually use their snapchat story for posting long critiques of the gender binary right?” “yes, so?” “just checking”). but he also posts a lot of candids of his friends with soppy captions that surprise people who don’t know him very well. 

combeferre uses facebook a lot but never really to write statuses - he just shares loads of articles and photos and stuff that interests him. his snapchat story is always full of photos of plants and insects - with the proper latin names as the captions - and group selfies, so many group selfies.

grantaire is really into memes, obviously - his fave is pepe, followed by the breadsticks meme. also he has a ‘secret’ side tumblr where where he posts lots of his art, mostly digital paintings of the amis (he’s really shy about it so they pretend not to know it exists but actually most of them check it at least twice a week for new pictures)

courfeyrac considers it his sworn duty to like/favourite/retweet/reblog every single selfie any of his friends ever post, and does so with impressive efficiency (”seriously courf i posted that like 30 seconds ago that’s impressive even for you” “you’re welcome”). he probably owns a selfie stick.

feuilly he really likes photography, and he’s also really good at it; his tumblr is a mixture of his two fav things to photograph: beautiful cityscapes and portraits of his friends, which are always super cute and well composed - like 90% of les amis’ profile pictures have been taken by feuilly. also he’s super into 8tracks and posts new mixes at least twice a week (he always makes mix CDs for peoples birthdays instead of cards)

joly he’s everybody’s best friend on snapchat because he sends all of them like 20 snapchats a day of random things that made him think of them (he does this even when they’re all together in the same room). he really really loves emojis, so half the time he’ll reply to messages with just a series of emojis that the recipient has to decode.

bousset his instagram feed consists entirely of loads of selfies with joly and musichetta on instagram with dorky inside jokes or puns as the captions. he and joly and grantaire have a vine account which is just them doing ridiculous stuff but somehow got really popular (they are now officially banned from vining during meetings because things got out of hand) - gavroche is their number one fan.

jehan they have like four different tumblrs all for different things: one where they post their own poetry and photos they’ve taken of the sky, a personal one that’s mostly just selfies and shitposting, a fandom blog, and one of those weird aesthetic blogs that just posts photos of plastic bags and smashed up plates and shit. also their snapchat story is always like 800 seconds long.

bahorel posts OOTDs on instagram like, every single day (feuilly usually takes them for him) and if he thinks one of his friends is looking particularly good one day he’ll post pictures of them too - it’s usually musichetta or cosette or jehan. constantly getting into arguments with people on social justice facebook groups, but he’s super good at debating so he usually wins. also, he snapchats the rest of les amis literally every time he ever sees a cat. 

musichetta she posted some selfies that got hundreds of thousands of notes on tumblr one time and then sort of accidentally became kinda tumblr famous, which she finds hilarious. she gets lots of questions from young girls about sexuality and body image and stuff and lovingly answers every single one. 

eponine runs a blog where she posts feminist critique of films and tv shows - chetta and cosette both write guest posts for her every now and again. she doesn’t have many photos of herself as a child so she makes a point of posting loads and loads of photos of gavroche and azelma on facebook and instagram. also her tumblr is unapologetically hipster af 

marius he uses old-style emoticons with noses like this :-) (everybody teases him about it but they actually find it really cute) and is really bad at remembering what abbreviations mean so courf usually has to remind him. he’s always the one who uploads photo albums to facebook after parties and stuff, always with a funny thing somebody said as the album title.

cosette she has a youtube account for videos of her singing (marius shares every one she ever posts, naturally, and valjean made her teach him how to use youtube so he could watch and like them all). she’s also super into tumblr astrology - she’ll constantly text everybody to inform them what kind of pasta or whatever they are according to their sign.

Some of us go back home to find what we lost. It can be a gruesome journey for many as returning always requires remembering what we have lost; what we must find and for some, it simply means rediscovering how leaving changed them. You realize you are changed in ways you cannot be held hostage again. You have unlearned so many indoctrinations and that can be difficult for those old friends and those who helped raise you to comprehend. You are different, you are not their ideal to the ones who scream that you have forsaken tradition. You are now yours to shape, to sharpen, to tell where and when it hurts without shrinking. Although it is liberating knowing you cannot go back into your innocent bubble, when you never questioned all you are told, realize now you know your voice. Your voice cannot be buried, you have become this woman whose feet they could not cut. The truth is it is very frightening, yes, you are now more yourself but know that once you choose this path, you will feel so alone in so many ways, but you must remember your mind can no longer be held hostage.

You are free and for you, a woman, this is powerful. Never forget this.

You never had a boyfriend during the 18 years of your existence. You don’t exactly know what’s wrong with you; you have a lot of friends, you’re very independent, and you’re an honor student. When it comes to your looks…you belonged to the ‘above average’ ranking; you’re not ugly, but you’re not that gorgeous either. You have a nice personality (like what many people tells you), but there is no one you’ve set your eyes on, and there’s no one who has set their eyes on you.

Tragic. You’re bound to live alone for the rest of your life.

As you sat on the uncomroftable bed, you tried to figure out how you got here. You had lived the perfect life, with a few exceptions. You were born into a great marriage, parents who loved you and each other. Despite being an only child, you never felt boredom or loneliness. Your parents provided you with more than enough attention, but never too much to spoil you. You had many friends growing up in a small town, always playing outside and when growing older still continuing to hang out. You had good grades all around. Sounds like a story from a book or a movie perhaps. But it was all true, and despite what happened, you doesn’t regret anything.

rEvolution

Let’s start with the fact that It doesn’t matter what race you are, what your sexual preference or orientation is, what gender you are, what age you are, what social status you hold, or how much you make a year. We are all equal. We are all humans.

I see and feel this notion at the Rock Show. Here, people of all walks of life, put aside their petty differences for the common joy of music. People meet and become friends who in the outside world, would normally never run in the same circles. It’s a phenomenon that is truly an amazing and inspirational thing to be a part of! I hope for that kind of love and unity in this world.

As many of you know, with the elections coming up, I’ve taken a stand, not to bully you into choosing a side, But to encourage an evolution of thinking. Yes, this way of thinking should absolutely come into play on a basic human level when you vote this November, but it’s not just an American election issue, It is global one.
And this is Not about “differences of opinion”.
If you discriminate against someone because they are a different than you…. it is wrong!! Period.
And if you get pissed off at my promotion of Love, and “assume” that by Me being Against Hate, sexism, racism, and inequality that I’m trashing “your guy ”, then maybe you’ve just proved my point and “your guy” is Not someone who we as humans should be glorifying.
My darlings, hate is so easy. It’s a cowardice act that spreads like a cancerous wild fire. But love, Love takes balls. To love and respect someone regardless of their differences, is a forward step in the evolution of a human. It is the act of someone smart enough to have not only looked past those differences but now accept and celebrate them. Because that is what makes our existence in this universe amazing. And seriously, if you hated everyone who wasn’t like you… you’d just be angry and alone on a spinning rock.
C'mon! It’s 2016. We’ve learned so much! But still have some UnLearning to do! Just as we now can’t imagine why we ever thought the world was flat… we need to ask why we ever could ever think that one race, gender or sexual orientation is better than the other. We are not primitive beasts, We are humans, let’s start acting like it!
We are one race, the human race… we are the change…. we are the rEvolution.

“What if the whole world went blind, would we be One, would we be kind, would we see each other with only our hands?
Listening with our hearts, build together what’s been torn apart, would we think of someone other than ourselves?
What if the world set fire, and every object of our desires burned against the shadow of the night?
We’d reach out for a hand, wouldn’t matter, girl, man or trans, we’d be each others hope shining bright.
We’re human, just human
No difference that I’m seeing now
We’re human, and in the end, we’re Bones and Skin with the ability to love.”

-Lzzy Hale 10/9/16

Being loud and proud is so important to me. 

I am asexual

I am aromantic

I am queer

So many aros and aces feel broken and alone, and it’s such a shame! Because they are not alone. There are others like you, people who care and want you to know you’re great the way you are. Just 3 days ago I made an ace friend because they saw the ace patch on my jacket at the comic book shop. There are more of us than you think, even if it’s hard to tell some times. I never want you to feel broken or alone again. Not like I used too. I hope you can find pride in being who you are, you are unique but you are not alone!

When The Day Met The Night

Jerome x Reader

If you get where this title came from, I will love you forever.

Originally posted by valeska-king

You were sent to Arkham for killing your family, but your bubbly spirit never left. Everyone found it hard to send someone so innocent and sweet to such a terrible place. Well, that’s what you heard at least.

Your first day there, you met many people but decided not to friend anyone. You wanted to get out early. You have to be sane. You are sane.


You were relaxing, reading a book when someone sat in front of you, “Hi gorgeous. I’m Jerome.”

“Hello Jerome. I’m (y/n),” you smiled at him.

You watched as his smile grew, “Aren’t you the happy one?”

“Always have to be positive. No matter what.”

“So, what are you in for,” he asked as he leaned closer, with a creepy smirk.

“Um, I may have killed my family, but they deserved it,” you beamed. 

You could tell he liked you, from the way his eyes lit up, “I killed my mummy! People just don’t understand when they deserve it!”


You were sitting in your cell, waiting for Jerome to come. He always came about this time. 

“Hi gorgeous,” you heard a voice say.

You immediately sat up, “Jerome!”

The two of you could talk all night if it wasn’t for the stupid guards. Jerome talked about how he practically ran the place and so much more. You could only sit and listen with wide, bright eyes. 

You could say that you were in love with him. 


Jerome and some other guys came in your room and soon, you were out of Gotham. 

When everything was situated and you thought that you were gonna lose Jerome to a game of Russian Roulette, Jerome demanded that the two of you stay in the same room.

So, that’s what happened.


You woke up, like you always did, in a good mood. This time though, Jerome was cuddled up to you. You smiled and dug yourself farther into his arms. You felt safe for the first time in a long time. It really felt amazing. 

“Gorgeous, are you awake,” Jerome whispered in your ear. 

It sent shivers down your spine and you smiled, “Yes, I am awake.”

“Want to go down and eat,” he asked, tracing patterns into your arm.

You didn’t know what got into him this morning but he was really lovey dovey today, “Jerome, what has gotten into you. I don’t mind but you are really, how do I say this, sane today.”

“Only for my sun.”

“And who is your sun,” you smiled even brighter.

“You, gorgeous,” he kissed your neck, “Only you.”

“Jerome, I love you,” your hand connected with your mouth. You and Jerome had always flirted but neither one of you had ever admitted to loving the other.

“I love you too, princess,” he kissed your neck again.

A relief washed over you and you couldn’t help but giggle a bit. 

That is how the the Day met the Night and fell in love.
