Aries: I envy you. I envy your courage, your stupidity and your childishness. Maybe you’re asking “Why?” Well, wouldn’t it be beautiful if we were all children at heart, like you? Like seeing things so horrible yet still making corny jokes? Like telling your feelings, like running until your feet hurt? Like purity, like innocence mixed with knowledge? You have experienced the world, you have experienced life. And yet, you still stand here. Brave and tall. As if to say “I am not afraid of life. I am not afraid to live.”

Taurus: I will always associate you with flowers and colours. With lilies and roses and blood oranges. I will always associate you with fruit and red-green-yellow. We will speak in colours, talk in words others won’t understand. With red-pink sand and blue-green eyes. An encouraging nod, a hug with clasping hands. Words left unspoken simply ‘cause they were never meant to be said, they were meant to be. They were meant to be. Plucking petals like a grade schooler playing games about love. Holding a magnifying glass over your head, and I could not find a flaw. I just saw you. I saw you.

Gemini: While you drink in the melodies of everyone’s laughter the ghosts find a new home inside your body. A facade of performance, masking out your true emotions. While the hallways turn vacant and your ghosts shut the doors. The voices leave the room empty, the emptiness in your chest weighing like a brick worth thousands of diamonds. I cannot put a price on your heart, I don’t know its colours. I don’t know its voice. Or the three albums you have on repeat over the summer, or the songs you dance to at night. Simply because you are you, unique, mysterious and beautiful.

Cancer: You are a puzzle and I am not your missing peace, I don’t own it. But you do. You make up your own being. Maybe you left it in your back pocket, next to the shattered dreams or under the pillars you build when you were eight years old. The ones you made to put your broken home on, searching for stability in broken mirrors. I will linger in my map of you and I swear that even when I get back it leads back to you. It always leads back to you. To that little house with orange paint on the walls from ten years ago. With the nicotine sticking to a once white ceiling and some kind of animals running around. The dusty photographs will still stand on the desk. You will still sit on that one spot, with teary eyes and crossed legs. And you will still be beautiful.

Leo: I could never describe your beauty. Your beauty cannot be multiplied, it can only be remembered, treasured, envied, appreciated or regretted. And by remembered I mean that when you feel like you are just another extra in someone’s life that they will mention you to their parents during dinner. They will talk about your shining personality and sparkling eyes. By treasured I am talking about that “the one” experience which you deserve. A treasure filled with all things unique and irreplaceable. One that’s filled with happiness. By envied I am talking about the eyes you do not see, or do not wish to see. Or don’t notice. You stand out in a crowd, especially when you don’t think you are. By appreciated I am talking about the ones who see your true you, your tangled hair and cracked lips. The ones who still stay even through the bad times. By regretted I am talking about the people who did not see your beauty until you blossomed. I understand why you find cocoons beautiful now, and how you like caterpillars just as much as butterflies.

Virgo: Snow litters on untouched skin. Sun rains through the cracks of the darkness even where you hide. I could hear you talking every day. Forever. With delicate fingers and blushed cheeks. Your hair untamed and your fingers bruised to the bone. Delicately logical. The edges of the leafs of oak trees remind me of your way of thinking. The overhang reminds me of your mind. Which casts shadows over the villagers in the houses you build where colourless souls reside. You are so often in debate with your own head, at war with your own body. Never at peace, always restless. Always asking, “but why?” I don’t know. You like it, don’t you? Parading around in your own world? Sweet little soul in a world full of pain.

Libra: The bell of the church echoed through your head a little longer than it should’ve. It never was nice. We never played nice. We talked until our lips were dry and I stayed home when you were out cold. But memories don’t matter anymore do they darling? In this orchestra of harmonious noises where you are the leader of everything nothing can hurt you. I don’t know, I don’t know. And goddamnit I know you will try to push everything on yourself again. You always do. That’s just how you work. Why don’t you warm your hands on your own body for once? You don’t need another person to feel like you’re loved, you only need one. One whole, full, true person.

Scorpio: Everything seems darker these days. Charcoal coloured clouds are a daily thing. And your arms are always covered up along with your legs. Even in the summer the nights don’t seem as enchanting. Not when small bruises shaped like the bumps of your knuckles litter on your thighs. Self destructive lullabies, “I just need a friend, for once in my life.” A desire for someone to stay ripped from your lips. So I stayed by your side wondering, if you wanted me to stay or needed me to stay. Of course I could say you remind me of scarlet blood and bathroom tiles. But you also remind of the river I used to play in when I was nine. You also remind me of the necklace I got when my grandmother passed away. You remind me of memories, the good, the bad, the in-between. You remind me of life. Please keep on living.

Sagittarius: The reason that I didn’t cry when you left was because crying means letting go, or so you said. And I don’t want to let you go. I want you to be a part of me, forever. But I can’t do that, you would rot in the hell hole that is my mind. I can’t put you through more cruelty. I hate how I am the reason you cry on bad nights, do you still wonder if I miss you? I do. I do. I do. Regret was stronger than appreciation. But you’re so fucking strong. Your eyes still shine even when you’re sad. You think no one likes you yet you know that’s not true. You’re the reason I am alive. You let me experience pain, beauty, emotion. You let me live. You’re so much more than enough, sometimes I can’t even handle who you are. You are dazzling. But you could never control your heart, it always wandered over the streets of other people’s bodies.

Capricorn: When the sun sets over mountains and the houses made of glass shatter I will still see your name in the sky in neon lights. The little bugs in our home always wanted to be friends with you. They always sat on the tip of your nose with gentle smiles. I never envied you, I wish I treasured you. You are so simplistic and nice. Nice. Too underrated for your own good, no? Aren’t we all. Your hands will still be remembered by those you touched. You always leave some kind of mark that they don’t want to wash off. You have that affect on people. You make them drown their thoughts and hold their breath when you walk into a room. You are an old soul, but you know that. Why? You just do. Because you’re you. And nothing can change that or the late nights, the slowness or the fastness in your walk doesn’t matter for the right people. They will walk for you until they have blathers on their toes. If they don’t you know what to do.

Aquarius: Swirls of icy wind are always your accomplice. You’re cold, and beautiful; like snow. The wires always stick to your senses, they get stuck in between your backbone. They twist around your spine and plug into the back of your brain. You let other people control you like you’re a mindless puppet. I think the wires got the best of you. Whenever you speak your mind it says something beautiful and unique. You are original, not ordinary. I am sorry they teach you that being unique is bad and that you have to fit into this ‘ordinary’ world as an ‘ordinary’ person. Nothing is ordinary about you, not even your name. Your name says who you are as a person, if someone asks me to define you I will simply say your name, the definition of your personality is your name. Because your name is unique and so is your personality. Don’t let other people control you.

Pisces: The imaginary butterflies with the raven black wings told me about you. They tell me that your head is in a universe they have never seen, with all things beautiful and all things bad. They see you crying with your knees tugged up sometimes, hands in your hair as you hide beneath sheets of darkness. You write poetry with the blood in the sink and make galaxies with the stars you find inside other people their eyes. A gentle smile always embraces your lips, “So happy, yet so sad” they say. A mask is something you believe is beautiful, but I believe you are beautiful. The real you. Not the you who cautiously walks over this realm of sadness. Your moonlit hair is so silky, your sunlit eyes are so sad. Chin up little soldier.

—  Letters to the zodiac signs
kpop fans are so fake woke it’s ridiculous
  • sm’s stylists: *gives exo a reggae comeback and puts kai in dreads because he has the darkest skin, obviously mocking him and black people*
  • y’all: KAI IS A RACIST AND PROBLEMATIC, HE’S THE PROBLEM HERE, NOT SM OR KOREA’S ANTI-BROWN IDEAS, THIS IS ALL HIS FAULT. HIM BEING A VICTIM OF KOREA’S COLORISM? FAKE! HIM SAYING HE DOESN’T LIKE WHAT THEY DID TO HIS HAIR?! LET’S IGNORE IT!!
  • bts’ stylists: *give jhope braids just TWO MONTHS after this kai/hair controversy* 
  • y’all: *mute because suddenly y’all don’t care about hair*
  • all of mamamoo: *dressed in blackface* *hwasa constantly using the n word to seem ~cool~*
  • y’all: unnies are ignorant!! let’s be nice and just educate them even though they’ve been at this shit for years :) girl groups are all perfect angels who can do no wrong so shut up you antis and misogynists 
  • bambam: *gets set up by attention seeking nonblack americans and led to believe the n word only had a friendly meaning*
  • y’all: BURN HIM AT THE STAKE GOT7 IS CANCELLED, WHY DIDN’T HE STOP PARTYING FOR TWO MINUTES AND GOOGLE THAT WORD?!! WHY DID HE BELIEVE HE WAS HANGING OUT WITH DECENT PEOPLE?????! NAIVE AND PROBLEMATIC !!1!
  • mino: caught using the n word AGAIN
  • y’all: um :)) why didn’t bobby stop him :) how dare he not say anything to his elder while they are on camera :))) this is all bobby’s fault #supportwinnerscomeback 
  • blackpink: *doing stereotypical native american hollers and circle dancing in boombayah* *incorrectly using aave to seem tough and ‘hood’
  • y’all: ROOKIE LEGENDS, BLAME THE COMPANY, IDOLS HAVE NO POWER, ESPECIALLY NOT IN THE BIG THREE!!
  • jackson: *wears dreads in a cf*
  • y’all: um why didn’t he stop this from happening??!! he has so much power what’s wrong with him? he should leave the group but he wont because BIG THREE PRIVILEGE!! got7 is cancelled again!!
  • namjoon: *uses the n word and apologizes and ~educates himself~*
  • y’all: that’s the only way an idol can move on from such a horrible thing, this is why we no longer hold that video against him
  • video from a while ago showing an idol using the n word: *resurfaces*
  • y’all: they didn’t apologize or take any steps to show they were sorry so let’s just brush it under the rug, stop digging up the past you ANTIS!!

tl;dr: 

kpop fans only care about offensive or ~problematic~ things when it’s not their faves who do it, which in itself is an issue. if one idol has to be held accountable for offensive shit, all idols need to be held accountable when they do the same thing.

What She Says: I’m fine.

What She Means: Jason Todd was the “Robin Who Died" and when he came back as Red Hood (Under The Red Hood 2004-2006) he was after Bruce for not killing the Joker and revenging his death. Bruce, after Jason’s death just metaphorically shrugged and walked away as he moved on to Tim Drake (No hate towards Tim, love that boy). But when Damian Wayne (Also love that boy), as Robin, died (Issue #8 of Batman, Inc. 2013) Bruce went mental and did nothing but search for a way to bring him back and revenge. Bruce was unwilling to accept the death. The only thing that stopped him from killing Heretic (Damian Wayne’s killer) was his resemblance to Damian. LIKE WHAT THE FUCK. Jason begged his father to revenge him, just once, but Bruce is willing to lose his sanity and entire code of conduct for Damian. Jason, being apart of the batfamily probably watched in absolute horror, as his own father choose his biological son over his adopted son. By now he probably has realized the wrongs in his past concerning trying to force Bruce to kill. Not to deemphasize Jason’s violent story, as he was acting as a sort of villain in the Under The Red Hood arc and forcefully tried to get his father to kill, but in Damian’s case, he would have done it without a second thought. Not only is this a major blow to Jason, but it is a poor representation of families with both biological children and adopted children, or even families with just adopted children, I’m sure. In short, the writers say that Bruce loves his biological son more than his adopted which is UNACCEPTABLE. Despite all of this, the writers did not exhibit how Jason was feeling during said arc which just isn’t fair to the readers OR the actual characters and their dynamic.

my bpd ass: i have literally no idea who i am

some fucko: but do any of us really know WHO we are? surely it is the deepest part of human nature to question existence, and wh-

me: thanks denise, but every time i look in a mirror i dissociate five inches to the left, i forget what my name is, and if you asked me what things i enjoy i would be UNABLE to tell you unless i had already made a list

me: hey remember how tony had an entire movie where his anxiety and PTSD were discussed in explicit terms in a way that no other mcu character has

me: and then we found out he’d spend millions of dollars on therapeutic technology to help him process some of the shit he’s been through, shortly before he was subjected to More Traumatic Shit that was Directly Connected to his pre-existing issues

me: and then people still acted like he had absolutely no reason to have acted even the tiniest bit emotionally to watching his parents being beaten to death directly in front of him after not sleeping the past few days because he was trying to help the people who had been hiding this from him. remember that

me: remember how tony stark has had the most on-screen explicit discussion of his mental health of any character in the mcu and has been canonically seeking help and trying to find ways to cope for years and is Somehow also Coincidentally the one people judge the most for every single emotional reaction and emotional motivation he has had and could possibly ever have. isn’t that interesting. isn’t it interesting how the character whose mental illness is discussed most explicitly with the most frequency is also the one everyone irrationally hates the most and the one whose motivations are criticized the most despite his character arc’s similarities to his teammates’

A Bunch Of People: how dare you say this. do you not remember Bruce’s Suicidal Ideation. How Dare You Not Mention Bruce
