Zack can’t think of a suitable word in English for what he wants to say, so out of habit he says it in Mandarin, and of course the others have no idea what he said. He expects them to complain, because his teachers did back when he tried to contribute in class, and starts to apologise
but instead of telling him off or staring at him blankly Billy has out his phone, looking up the meaning, and the other three are over his shoulder reading the translation and description of the word, and once they get it they’re like “Oh yeah totally, I feel that-” and carry on
Zack who takes note of all his friends tiny quirks and needs because he’s so used to looking out for those things being a young carer he does it without meaning to anymore, being totally taken off guard when he realises they’re doing the same for him and making these extra efforts because they love him and he’s not alone anymore. Friends do that, friends do that for the people they care for and he has someone else other than his mother now who does that for him: these four give a shit about him, they genuinely love him and want to know and work with this stuff
I feel like a lot of people focus on how having friends is a welcome, yet surreal change for Trini, but Zack’s the same and I think he gets brushed under the carpet a little
"No steppy" right-winger:
lol how can someone support communism and anarchism at the same time? lol communism is full left-wing and anarchism is full right-wing -- total state control vs no state.
Communists and anarchists:
*offer detailed analysis of the state, demonstrating that the state exists as a legal apparatus to enforce the class interests of those with power in society; draw conclusions based on this historically-verified piece of information and advocate for the abolition of capitalism so that class relationships can dissolve and in turn the state won't need to exist as a violent apparatus apart from the people, acting in the interests of capital; understand that "libertarian" as a term consistently had this left-wing connotation until establishment-supporting hacks twisted the term for their own material benefit; in turn recognize the left-wing character of both communism and anarchism, as movements that seek the abolition of concentrated power and the free flourishing of each and all*
"No steppy" right-winger:
animals practice capitalism =) capitalism is literally just anything that doesn't involve the state =) me putting my bow tie on in the morning is capitalism =)
theres just a what-if here about ritsu getting just a bit of psychic empathy and achieving the rest with his writers brain, and theres also a headcanon about mob not being a very good singer or not playing any instrument but being able to whistle very well
I remember theres a word for that, the very good whistler thing, from a jeffery deaver book Ive read, but I cant find it in my memory anymore
You know, Diana has probably had a very lonely hundred years in man’s world. Sure she had Etta, Sameer, Chief, and Charlie, but they would grow old and die, while she would never age (btw she totally would be there for all their funerals because she’s so good like that). Eventually they would be gone and leave her behind and she witnesses more of the horrors of man’s world like WWII and all these other travesties.
It’s very clear from what we’ve seen from Diana in modern day DCEU that she’s lived a life of solitude. I’m sure she met people and befriended them, but like I said, they would die while she continued to live. I really wonder what she felt when Superman was revealed to the world. He’s not like her, obviously, but for the first time, there was this other super powered person out there. She wasn’t the only one.
And now, in Justice League, she’s going to be introduced to all these other people with Powers. Arthur, Barry, Victor, they’re all superhuman, and she’s going to form friendships with them. For the first time in a century, she might not feel so alone.
But then it gets sadder when you remember that she’s still the only one who is immortal. She’ll grow to love this group of people, but they will still be gone one day, while she remains.
Like, people who definitely possess magical abilities, but they’re really mundane.
A witch whose specialty is potion making, but she really only uses it to perfect tea.
A forest witch who can’t control plants but can speed up the growth process of flowers, flowers literally bloom wherever they walk- it gets annoying during hide and seek and the witch can’t control it.
A warlock with ice magic who makes delightful snowmen and ice rinks,
Or whose only ice magic is to make pretty frost designs on glass windows.
a magic user who can only make bread rise faster.
A metamorphamagus whose appearances change only very slightly and also very slowly throughout the year. So like in fall they’re a light blonde, in winter they have platinum blonde hair - nearly white actually- in spring they’re a light blonde again, but in summer their hair is straight up golden blonde, like you could make money out of that shit.
MAGIC USERS WHOSE ONLY ABILITY IS LITERALLY TO PUT ON MAKEUP FLAWLESSLY EVERY TIME AND MAKE IT STAY FLAWLESS THROUGH THE WHOLE DAY.
THE ABILITY TO LOOK 100% ON POINT ALL THE TIME.
There’s not enough Dan/Neil content and im here to fix that,
listen,, listen to me, remember that part of the extra content where Nora said that if it wasn’t Neil/Kevin/Andrew, then it was Neil/Matt/Dan ??
yeah there’s lot of Matt/Neil fawning over each other but not enough of the angry bean and Dan,, so here we go
they spend a lot of time together during Neil’s sophomore year, like a lot of time, because they’re making out Dan is showing Neil all the captain stuff
she teaches neil how to dance and s t r i p, and she teaches him to love himself and his body
lmaooooo Rip In Pieces to anyone who tries to tear Dan down for being a female captain/coach ever again,,, they dead
just pls,, the irony of neil “I don’t drink” Josten being in love with Dan “Hennessy” Wilds,,,
you’ve heard of Neil drawing fox paws all over his homework, now get ready for Neil drawing fox paws all over his girlfriend
she takes him places !!!!! !! Takes him to the arcade !! To movies !!! Takes him to the carnival when it’s in town and wins him a plushie as big as he is !!
(he sleeps cuddling with the plushie most nights because he misses Dan when she graduates)
Dan comes back !! During Neil’s 4th year at Palmetto she comes to be like an intern or assistant or whatever for Wymack so she can learn things about coaching !! !!!!! And shes so proud of her boy !! She’s sits in for team meetings and watches Neil pace around and gesture wildly and yell about stats,,
a moment of silence for the mental imagine of Dan carrying Neil on her shoulders , Neil leaning down so his nose is pressed to her forehead so that he can look in her eyes and she just smiles at him, like “watcha doing there, mister?” :’)))))
Dan cries at Neil’s graduation and when Neil makes court
Neil knows all of Dan’s stage sisters,,, knows their names, their addresses, their favorite colors, their favorite drinks, their star signs, sends them all gifts on their birthdays because they’re important to Dan and he loves Dan,
Dan has a CD with nothing but “Bad Girls” by M.I.A on it like 20 times and she plays it in the car when she and neil drive,,, they have matching sunglasses and ice cream cones,, the windows are down. A man on the street whistles at Dan at a stop light, she just turns the music up while Neil flips him off. They keep driving.
