all the love for the old man

There's an old saying: Beware of the naked man who offers you a shirt... As much as I love receiving encouragement, if your life is a mess and needs improvement, PLEASE focus on yourself first. Let me encourage you instead. I wouldn't be a good friend/ person if I constantly drained you of all of your positive energy, while allowing your to linger in a negative state.

No, that’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying that the Len I see in my head, the whole person, the complex man, the sassy doctor who cares so damn much that he can barely function, the smartest guy in the room (fight me this is true), the southern gentleman, the romantic, the scared little kid, the guy who’s had his heart broken in more ways than he can count, the youngest board certified trauma surgeon in a century, the guy you want in a crisis, the man who was MADE to be a daddy, the man who beyond all else just wanted to be a good husband, the look first leap later guy, the guy who will never admit that he loves old-earth action flicks, the guy who just cannot move past the loss of his daughter, this guy, this Len… This is the Len that I see. 

- @mccoymostly

I don’t hate you. I feel nothing but pure disappointment towards you. I am disappointed on how you take things to your hands. How much of a jerk you were, for being a coward about certain things.

You haven’t change a bit. I thought this time, “hey, maybe he finally got the balls to stand up and own whatever he feels. Maybe after all these years, he’s now finally a grown man.”

But nah, you’re the same old guy who walked out on me 3yrs ago. The same guy who chose to cheat rather than owning his withering feelings towards me. The same guy who put me and my family in so much pain and ghastly feelings. The same guy who looked at me plainly after 2yrs of being together, instead of a burning gaze of love and a deeper feel of affection as time passes. You’re still the same guy who never know what he really wanted, unless being presented with something.

I can’t believe after all this time, you’re still the same guy who can’t seem to have his own decision and stand for and by it, when situation asks for it.

I guess not being with you anymore has its favors. And truly, God remove people in our lives because He meant us to be with the bigger ones.

I love the fact that you keep calling marius out! i'm just wondering why you always portrait david only as a victim, when he is a creep in the same way marius is. i'm not saying raping david was okay but rather wondering why the fandom forgot how awful david is

Oh, I don’t care for David. PRIMARILY because he waltzes in and replaces both Louis (the bookish love interest) and Daniel (the chronicler) in the story, but he’s also a grade-A prick. What with his statutory assault of  “””””””””precocious””””””””” children and general Old White Man patronizing (you KNOW Jesse had to deal with a mountain of ‘splaining all day every day, making me all the more angry that all of a sudden he’s guiding her everywhere like a child in PL). 

The thing about David is that I can mostly ignore him. He’s a shitheel, but he’s kind of his own little bubble of unpleasant over in a corner, and not especially important in the first three books. Marius is pretty inextricably bound up in the arcs of three of my favorite characters (Lestat, Armand, Daniel) in addition to being at the center of basically everything as a trusted advisor, which is why he comes up so often (and by the same token, why David mostly comes up in the context of his role in Lestat’s fall into awfulness). 

thelolzer  asked:

Once again to all mods! What are some of your favourite animes?

Mod Mellow:

Ah man, I’m a sucker for “Princess Tutu.” I also really love “Konosuba” for it’s comedy, & “Sakamoto, Desu Ka?” is just an absolutely wild ride from start to finish.

Mod Sync

Sports Animes are my go to’s… Free! was the entire reason I got a Tumblr in the first place. Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Beebop, FulyCuly, I’m old let me have my oldies. Anything by CLAMP. Pricess Tutu was awesome like Mellow said.

Yuri growing like a sunflower and passing Otabek’s height is my favourite headcanon (▰˘◡˘▰)

Matching Gravity Falls characters to Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil characters

Hey guys, so today i’m going to be matching some gf characters to their svtfoe counterpart. Well let’s get started :)

Mabel Pines = Star Butterfly

This is a no-brainer. Mabel and Star really related to each other. They’re both cute, sweet and jumpy girls with bubbly personalities and they really love to have fun. Plus their symbols are stars. 

Dipper Pines = Marco Diaz

Another no-brainer. Dipper and Marco are both adorable boys that are smart, dorky and just so nerdy. And Dipper really cares for Mabel, just like Marco cares for Star. Plus they both have crushes on cool girls (For Dipper-Wendy and for Marco-Jackie)

Wendy Corduroy = Jackie Lynn Thomas

Wendy and Jackie really relate. They both really love to chill and are so cool and rad to hang out with. 

Gideon Gleeful = Ludo

Gideon and Ludo are both little selfish guys that want to take something for power. For Gideon, it’s the journals and for Ludo, it’s the Butterfly Family’s wand. 

Soos = Buffrog 

Soos connects with Buffrog. They’re both big, have green shirts and are always there to help if you need them. Plus they both care for their family and friends. 

Robbie Valentino = Tom Lucitor 

Robbie and Tom are guys that seemed to be jerks at first who had a hard time getting over their breakups (For Robbie- Wendy and For Tom- Star) and Robbie really disliked Dipper and Tom hated Marco, but then they both learned how to be nicer and move on. 

Old Man McGucket = King Butterfly

I think McGucket relates to King Butterfly for a few reasons. They both like to do weird and crazy things and they want respect from their children. (For McGucket- Tate and for King Butterfly- Star)

Candy and Grenda = Pony Head and Alfonzo and Ferguson 

Candy and Grenda relate to these guys for they’re all best friends of a character in their shows that love to hang out with them and they do wild things. 

Bill Cipher = Toffee

They’re both wicked, cunning and are such good tricksters. Plus they have the power to possess people. Also they’re both the most wanted and the biggest villains in their shows. 

Pacifica Northwest = Brittney Wong

They’re both rich, spoiled and the most popular girls and they act mean. Also, Pacifica hates Mabel just like Brittney has a disliking to Star

Stanley Pines = Janna

Stan can relate to Janna. They both steal and shoplift things. And they’re pretty sneaky and have a criminal mind. 

Stanford Pines = Glossaryck 

Ford and Glossaryck are similar. They both have six fingers, are wise and they both own a book (Ford- The journals and Glossaryck- the Book of Spells)

Well those are my comparisons. This took me so long to make. I hope you all enjoyed it. :)

asoiaf meme [4/4] quotes

“Allow me to give my lord one last piece of counsel,” the old man had said, “the same counsel that I once gave my brother when we parted for the last time. He was three-and-thirty when the Great Council chose him to mount the Iron Throne. A man grown with sons of his own, yet in some ways still a boy. Egg had an innocence to him, a sweetness we all loved. Kill the boy within you, I told him the day I took ship for the Wall. It takes a man to rule. An Aegon, not an Egg. Kill the boy and let the man be born.” The old man felt Jon’s face. “You are half the age that Egg was, and your own burden is a crueler one, I fear. You will have little joy of your command, but I think you have the strength in you to do the things that must be done. Kill the boy, Jon Snow. Winter is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.”

Day Ninety-Four

-A child told me that he loved his lanky polar bear. He then asked for his leggy man boy to not be put in a bag. He gushed to his father about how excited he was for his limping pollo loco. I am grateful to have been the one to bestow upon him his Lego Batman toy.

-A man came through with a camouflage bandana, a long-sleeved camouflage shirt, camouflage shorts, and pasty white calves. He is guaranteed to go unnoticed as long as he stays in knee-high coverage.

-I began my shift not in the happiest of moods. This all changed when a two year-old looked me in the eye and told me, “Myungh.” Children always know just what to say.

-Two three year-old twins took turns tooting on a toy trumpet together, absolutely tickled by how perfectly they could produce their one note.

-I watched on in fascination as a man in his fifties knocked over a sign at Starbucks and spent ten minutes attempting to place it upright again. He soon found his efforts to be in vain and instead attoted to slink away in what was ultimately the most noninconspicuous manner possible.

-A woman left in the middle of paying for her purchase to wait through the line at Starbucks and get a drink. I am beginning to understand how some may doubt my stories. I, too, cannot find any way to believe that this actually happened.

-A child ran towards me, shouting, “Daddy Two!” My plan is working flawlessly and my infiltration of his family has begun.

-A triad of men came through my line, looking like a hipster version of the Three Stooges, and living up to the reputation.

-A line of intimidating frat boys spent the duration of their time in my lane debating the best brands of “choccy milk” and their go-to shaking strategies.

(2/3) “One day I found a box of old love letters that my dad had written to my mom. They were romantic letters. They said nice things. I was surprised because I’d never seen him say those things. All of that had disappeared before I was born. My father had never told me anything about himself. Everything I know about him, I learned from my mom. She told me that the romance had been an act. She told me that she later realized he was a very cold man. But Mom always told me that we shouldn’t blame him. She said he had a very rough childhood. His father abandoned the family when he was very young. His mother married another man, and sent him to live with an uncle. She raised an entirely new family and left my father behind. He had a very lonely childhood. So my mother always told me: ‘You must not blame your father.’ She told me that always. Especially after she got sick.”

(Santiago, Chile)

You Set My Heart on Fire by whelvenwings, Teen, 34k 
Everyone has a soulmate. And everyone sees any marks on their soulmate’s skin appear on their own body; it starts with the first marks, drawn on by the midwife at birth. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a soulmate who replies, but Yuuri does, and he knows that he should feel fortunate - however, when he’s trying to make a living as a small-time painter, and his soulmate is the famous artist, Viktor Nikiforov… well, it seems slightly less than fortunate.

“I know it can be a lot to take in.” Viktor said with amusement clear in his voice.
“I don’t understand.” Yuuri said quaking slightly under Viktor’s gaze and warm hands, “Why would you ever want to meet someone like me?” He looked down. “I’m nothing special.”
Viktor’s brows pinched together as he let out a breath as if in disbelief, his head tilted slightly so the light of the moon reflected in his horns. “I have never thought of you as anything but extraordinary, Yuuri.”

Music had a way to express an open heart. Music had a way of gutting a life until everything bled.For one individual, music was his world. For music, it reunited a part of the world that he thought he had lost.

Then he started wanting to use words for more. He even ran his mouth quite a few times in the past months, much to his embarrassment.

Yuuri could still remember everything about the mysterious skater, who’s true identity was hidden behind immaculate masks. He remembered how kind and caring the man was and how it felt as if time itself would stop and stare when the man held him in his embrace. He also remembers how that world crumbled into dust when the mysterious man disappeared without so much as a kiss goodbye. It seemed that all traces of the man were gone from existence and yet four simple words brought Yuuri’s world into shambles.

“You might be Yuri’s biological parent, Mr. Nikiforov. But I’m his father. If Yuri wants to go with you, that’s one thing,” Yuuri Katsuki’s voice flows quiet and dangerous into the room “but if he doesn’t, don’t think that you’re taking my child away from home,”

(Don’t) Ring the Wedding Bells by cuttlemefish, Explicit, 31k (WIP)
As (loosely) inspired by real life, this is the wedding reception AU (you didn’t ask for, but will get) in which Yuuri Katsuki catches the bride’s bouquet and (shortly after) gets smashed at a wedding reception, then dirty dances with his best friend, (sort of) seduces a (hot) platinum-haired trust-fund baby named Viktor, and ends up being hounded for his identity (by said trust-fund baby and his friends and family) on social media.

we are lost, but we are not gone by persephoneggsy, Mature, 26k (WIP)
The Dollhouse deals in fantasy, but Victor Nikiforov just needs one night. At least, until he finds himself wanting more. And it’s all because of Eros, the beautiful Active that’s consumed his every thought.

Blackbird by sixpences, Mature, 102k **Graphic depictions of violence
The year is 1942, and Europe is at war. Captain Victor Nikiforov, an intelligence operative for the NKVD, has been trapped in Berlin by the German invasion of the USSR. Posing as a Nazi industrialist, his days are spent charming information out of Axis diplomats to try and keep the Red Army fighting another day. Yuuri Katsuki, a foreign-educated bureaucrat in the Japanese Embassy, has secrets of his own concealed beneath his unremarkable demeanour. When he uncovers Victor’s real identity, it will alter the course of both of their lives forever.

Never Look Away by gabapple, mamodewberry, Mature, 108k (WIP)
Everything Viktor knows and loves is tangled up in the world of competitive skating- a world that, for him, is quickly coming to an end. Standing at the precipice of the inevitable, he must decide how his tale unfolds: should he retire into quiet obscurity? Allow himself to be eaten alive by the younger, more vicious competition?

LMAO overwatch discourse is fucking dumb

first off with Mercy/Genji vs Pharah/Mercy:
Literally nobody cares, there are voicelines for either pair if you really want to take them as you will.

Törbjorn hate:
Now, I get that some of these are just jokes, but there’s an unsettling number of folks who genuinely hate him. “He’s racist against Omnics!” So is Zarya. So is Junkrat. You know, the two characters you all seem to love so much? Y'all call Torbjörn a nasty old man but you idolize Junkrat despite him literally being a terrorist. Hold people to the same standards or not at all.

Vampire Symmetra:
How do you call someone whitewashed if it’s literally fucking grey body paint do I even have to say this

“Whitewashed” Lúcio spray:
The Christmas event screens were on a snowy night time map. In other words, the lighting is going to make things paler.

Lunar New Year Mei:
Pretty obvious the butt was a rigging error. Also, never confirmed she was fat. It’s nice to see fanart like this but attacking people for a thinner Mei is not cool. The sprays leave room for ambiguity so don’t be a jerk.

Uprising Widowmaker skin:
Blizzard never confirmed if Amélie was white or not. Noire Widowmaker? Those are cables. See them as dreads if you want but it’s never stated if they are.

Officer D.Va:
This one really pisses me off, since I’m Korean myself. She’s not a fucking American police officer so stop projecting your hatred onto her character. See the logo on her hat? That’s the Korean police force symbol. Even without the skin, she canonically serves as part of the Republic of Korea military. Thought you folks hated military people, judging from the discourse. A large majority of the characters in the game are or were part of some sort of military, so shit on them too.

Either stop it or hate everything and show people how dumb you are.

Y’all I watched a video of Dylan O’Brien legit running away and straight up escaping his bodyguards just so he can meet his fans who had been waiting all day for him and his entire PR team is literally screaming for him to stop and turn around but he just completely ignores them and keeps going until every single person gets an autograph and a picture and he did it all with like the most laid back and genuinely sweet and patient attitude and then I remembered how they let him out of shooting the last 10 episodes of Teen Wolf because he had a near death accident but he moved his entire schedule around just so he could come back anyway and finish what he started and it all just makes me seriously question if my whole writing career is just a subconscious ploy to find a way to meet this man and make him fall in love with me because who else in the entire world has ever
