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
sasuke’s abilities as a shinobi are majorly underrated within the tumblr fandom, it’s like people forget (or want to forget) that he’s a goddamn god-leveled ninja – no one and I mean NO ONE currently alive in the shinobi world can fight against him on equal terms in a serious all-out fight, except naruto. anybody else would easily get crushed.
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.
you know something I love about the Cosmere? the power couples. there’s so many of them and I feel so blessed. Sarene and Raoden, Vin and Elend, Dalinar and Navani, Siri and Susebron, Wax and Steris, MeLaan and Wayne, that one ardent couple studying spren and food, Breeze and Allrianne, probably Ranette and Misra (haven’t really seen anything of Misra yet but i love her already and i have faith that she and Ranette are powerful together), so on and so forth. Even Torol and Ialai Sadeas?? They’re, like, evil, but gosh darn if they aren’t a power couple
With all these hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunami warnings.. it’s safe to say that Mother Nature is really done with us humans and our shit and the fact we don’t appreciate her. The world is beautiful and we have destroyed it. Nature is taking it back.
