although i do have many other feelings about that

You have to choose, Castiel, us or them?

Writing meta about Castiel is always interesting to me. For the past three years I’ve been talking about Castiel’s endgame and the fact that Jeremy Carver changed it. Since Cas was introduced, he has never stayed with the Winchesters for a long time. In this post from 2014, I explained what the questions regarding Cas were and that he had to make his final decisions based on something he wanted, not on something he had to do. As a complement, in this post from last year, I explained that Cas’ endgame was clearly heaven for a very long time until Carver came along and flipped the script. Cas’ journey has been pretty evident since the Carver era: In the end he’ll choose humanity. However, I think the meta I’m writing right now is necessary to explain that if Cas chooses humanity, he has to do it because he wants to, not because it’s the only choice available.

Many people are upset because Cas is going back to Heaven without even telling Dean. I, on the other hand, feel excited about what happened in episode 12x15. We already know that Castiel’s family, the angelic one, hates him. He’s not welcomed in Heaven at all, and he knows it. I suppose that must hurt. Let’s think about it for a moment. If our blood family rejects us, we can always have people in our lives that we consider family –although not by blood, but that doesn’t mean the rejection will stop hurting. What’s the point of Cas choosing Dean and the other Winchesters if they are basically the only choice he has?

I would thank Andrew Dabb forever if he found a way for Heaven to forgive Cas and welcome him once more. After everything Cas has done (no matter if he’s meant it or not), I’ve always thought that having the angels accept Castiel again as one of their own is a difficult but necessary task. Why do I say it’s necessary? I say it because when Cas makes his final decision regarding what he wants to be (angel or human), where he belongs (heaven or earth), and who his family is (the angels or the Winchesters), he needs to know that he can pick either.

Truth be told, it would be even better if Cas didn’t have to choose between heaven and earth. However, unless the narrative changes in the hands of Dabb, Castiel’s journey has been set to choose only one option. That was definitely Carver’s idea. Do you Remember Naomi’s words? “You have to choose, Castiel, us or them?” Cas’ endgame was foreshadowed back in 8x17, and I don’t think Dabb has changed his mind about what Carver wanted for Cas, or at least I don’t have proof of that in what the show is giving us. As recently as 12x14, Dean was angry with Sam because Sam’s always split in the middle. In fact, Dean asked Sam to pick a side. That’s precisely what I think Cas will have to do one day in the foreseeable future.

What I know for sure is that Castiel’s endgame won’t be in Heaven. Cas doesn’t belong there anymore, but he needs the chance to experience that for himself. If the angels accept Cas, and he’s welcomed in Heaven again, he will realize how much of an outsider he is now. He will always go back to his family, the one that means the world to him, the Winchesters (mostly Dean), but when he does it, it will be because he wants to, not because he has to. He will choose the Winchesters because he loves them, because they’re his family, not because Heaven won’t take him back. He will say goodbye to Heaven not because he’s not allowed there, not because he’s the most hated angel after Lucifer. He’ll do so because Heaven isn’t Cas’ home anymore.

And on Earth there will be someone ready to show Cas the way to find his real home:

Confession

So I’ve stopped wearing makeup. Literally threw it all away. I’m a senior in hs and I just moved to another school. I stopped wearing makeup in the summer so no one has saw me without but the people at work… I then decided on the first day that i wasn’t going to wear any. In this generation I just feel makeup seems to be so important. I know many women don’t wear it but all over social media women wear it. I didn’t feel like it was a problem at first but then I started to see how insecure makeup made me. I couldn’t go anywhere without doing my makeup. I felt I was covering up my flaws .. Which I was… Then social media screwed these boys head up… Like men are afraid of natural beauty… Natural black beauty.. I’m not talking soft bouncy “a” curls but kinky curly hair (all hair types are beautiful ) and no makeup. Even in hs these girls look 20 and UP!!! I want to preserve my face and I want to look my age and I had forgotten that MANY TEENAGERS HAVE ACNE!! I felt self-conscious at first. Now I don’t care and I’m embracing my flaws. I’m way happier with myself… I go out without makeup and feel normal. I’m not reapplying makeup or worrying about being oily… Or worrying about hugging people and getting makeup on them. although at school I do feel boys won’t speak to me because I don’t look like the other girls but then I’m like I don’t care lol I go to school for education and if a guy falls in love with me I want it to be for my natural beauty and my mind. What’s inside ( sounds cliché ) but that’s how I truly feel. I want someone to look beyond the exterior ( what many young adults don’t do ) but It does make me happy. I don’t feel confined to society’s standards of beauty. I wish I had friends who embraced their natural beauty unapologetically.

bittersamgirlclub TOP 5 PROMPT #11: TOP 5 SAM-PRAISE MOMENTS 

Making this made me feel all warm and squishy inside, there are many other little moments I could have chosen and that makes me very happy. Sometimes it feels like Sam is so underappreciated, both in fandom and in universe, so to focus on all those moments where characters talk or feel about Sam the same way we do is just wonderful.

These are not necessarily in any order, although those first two are pretty much interchangeably in first place.

  1. Marie - Fan Fiction - I just love how with three words Marie manages to sum up so much of what we all adore about Sam, those core facets of his being that make Sam so beautiful. But what I love even more is “there’s nothing he can’t do”. There’s something so powerful about that, and it’s so true on so many levels. The way in which Sam has defied destiny and other’s expectations for him, time and again. Working his way to a full ride to Stanford. Building himself a new life, not once, but twice from the ground up. Overcoming the devil. How could anyone not believe that Sam is capable of anything after reading about that! The other thing I love about Marie is that, although she exists in universe, she gives us an out of universe perspective on Sam, in that sense I find her, and her praise of Sam to be very relatable, it feels as if I am being voiced directly through the show. Of course the fact that Sam did not hear this praise saddens me, but I think it is incredibly important that Dean did hear it, to be reminded of all those things that deep down he knows, and loves about his brother.
  2. Jess - Pilot - I think its no secret how much I adore Sam/Jess and their relationship. Of course we only get tiny slivers of their life together, these fleeting moments, but ones like this especially I think illuminate their relationship perfectly. In this scene, Jess makes absolutely sure that Sam knows how proud of him she is, bringing up his LSAT score, praising how amazing it is, making sure he knows she’s serious when she says she’s proud, that she wasn’t just kidding around, that she really means its and that she believes in him. I think Jess was painfully aware of how little, if ever, Sam had been exposed to the concept of someone being proud of him and that intentionally worked to rectify that at every available opportunity (I might have written a little ficlet about this *cough*shamelessplug*cough*). We hear in ‘Phantom Traveller’ that apparently John expressed his pride in Sam to others, but clearly withheld it from Sam himself, the fact that Jess goes out of her way to ensure that Sam knows how she feels is just SO important.
  3. Mr Wyatt - After School Special - This episode in general is just EVERYTHING to me, but this moment in particular is incredibly special and I think actually instrumental in shaping Sam. I think its quite likely given Sam’s reaction to thinking the Mr Wyatt was going to fail him, that prior to this scene Sam was actually rather apathetic about school, moving from place to place, never being able to make real connections, he probably loved learning and studying but was unable to find reasons to really care about doing well when in a few days he’d be off to the next school anyway, when he saw nothing in his future but more of what his entire life had been, death and danger and loneliness. Mr Wyatt not only praised Sam’s academic abilities, but more importantly he allowed Sam to believe that there could be something beyond his current life, that he was capable of escaping that, of building something of his own.
  4. Dean - Scarecrow - I love, love, love this moment! Firstly, I’m pretty certain that this is the first time Sam has heard the words “I’m proud of you” from anyone other than Jess, look at his reaction, he’s completely at a loss for what to do or say and just taken aback entirely. What’s also important here is what Dean is praising Sam for. Dean is saying that he’s proud of Sam for the very things that go Sam disowned and dissociated from his family, for things that Dean in the past (and sadly will again in the future) had criticised Sam for. Standing up to John and forging his own way were actions that Sam had been led to believe time after time were deep and terrible betrayals and things that he should feel ashamed of, that Dean in this moment acknowledges that they are in fact great strengths and worthy of admiration is just so incredibly important.
  5. Sarah - Clip Show - I actually think this one is a little odd, because I think what Sarah is picking up on here is Sam’s determination to finish the trails and to 'right’ all the perceived wrongs he was done, to make up for all the ways he believes he’s let Dean down, and I can’t really feel that that is a positive thing. On the other hand, Sarah a) doesn’t know the context of what she’s seeing, she’s genuinely trying to and say something good about Sam b) at this point in the season people who bolster Sam in anyway, especially to his face, are so few and far between that anything along those lines is like manna in the desert….

sunflowerchester — I finally finished it! hahah…

Oh my gosh thank you!

Wow guys wow. 1,400+ followers and I love each and every one of you. If you don’t know already my name is Dominique aka Pansexualfire. If you’re interested in how I look, look at the pan meet pan submissions (more on that later) if I haven’t personally greeted you then hello and welcome! I hope you like the content so far and if you ever have a question feel free to drop it in my ask box Anonymous questions are welcome. I try to answer them as soon as I see them. I check multiple times a day so no worries. If your question is a “can I see more of x” type of question or “can you define x” or “what is x” then it might take a little longer because whenever I define something on my blog I Try I give at least two different definitions (most of the time more) because there are many ways to define something. For example maybe the first two definitions of Pansexual don’t fit you but the third one does, or maybe it does it better. Everyone feels different about certain subjects and I want to try my best to help you to the best of my ability.

Although my blog is catered to Pansexual /Panromantics I often post about other orientations as well just for the fact that your sexual and romantic preferences do not have to match. (Maybe I’ll do a survey on this I’m kind of curious now to how many do and how many don’t) other reasons are that maybe you have multiple labels or you’re not really sure where you fit. I want to cater to everyone and make them feel safe and loved as well. Why not be inclusive and make all types of new friends right?

If you ever want to see more of something please let me know. Drop it in my ask box or message me either is fine. No matter what It is, it doesn’t have to be about sexual or romantic orientation, it can be about life, family, anything. I’m here to help to the best of my ability. Or if you just want to talk I’m here. A lot of you have been telling me how much you love my blog and thank you for that. You’re positive feedback is really appreciated :) honestly I love hearing from you guys.

If you want to know how to submit a Pan meet Pan (or any other submission for that matter) Go to my blog hit the “+” at the top and go to the tab labeled “Pan meet Pan and other submissions ” and submit there. You are allowed to submit anything you want us to know. If you’re to shy or don’t want to submit a picture of tour face that’s fine as well. You can submit a picture of your pet, the last book you read, your favorite stuffed animal, the view from outside your window anything you want! If you don’t want to submit a picture at all that’s also fine. If you’re not a Pansexual / Panromantic that is fine too you can still submit a Pan meet Pan as a supporter. :) All are welcome. Don’t forget to add your tumblr URL if you want people to be able to message you!

I really really Love all the positive feedback I’m getting from everyone! The Pan meet Pan submissions are going really well. :) thank you all so much once again. :) If I have some how helped any of you please let me know you can even submit it as a submission of you want! I love hearing all these wonderful things from you all 💟💛💙
You guys are so freaking amazing! I love you guys like seriously if you haven’t heard it today I love you and you are valid. 😘

I stayed home from work today.  My throat is killing me and I can barely talk–my voice disappears and breaks.  I don’t feel all that terrible otherwise, but I’m not one to go in to work no matter what.  No thanks!  I can monitor my email from home, and there’s nothing pressing I had to do today.  Thankfully, this is a relatively slow week for me.  Were this to happen next week or the week after…that would be more problematic.  I just hope whatever this is goes away quickly.  :/

Family venting below the cut–feel free to skip.

Pedophiles? Minor attracted people? They don’t deserve violent hate.

I encourage the haters to message me to understand where im coming from more.

TW for obvious reasons. Do not read if these conversations trigger you.

MAP- Minor attracted person/people

Pedophile- Attraction to pre-pubecent children

So, I’m not a MAP. And frankly when I was between 14 and 20 years old, I frequently spewed hate for these people on my personal blogs and picked fights with them in forums. It wasn’t good for my mental health at all. 

So, after confronting my feelings and letting go of an automatic knee jerk highly emotional response to talking about pedophiles with some very smart people, I began doing research on my own.

 I started with a few sociology and psychology textbooks and went from there. 

To get to the point, violently hating MAPs forces them to keep their identity to themselves. This is called repression. When human being are repressed for something out of their control [attraction], they tend to go to more extremes to find an outlet for their emotions. In this case, MAP individuals will find closed echo chamber communities with other minor attracted individuals since there is no alternative to talk about their feelings openly without being potentially assulted/doxxed. 

In these closed communities they will often encounter people with extreme viewpoints about children/adult relations and people who might even be convicted CSA offenders. Even if the new MAP member has committed not a single offence. 

After interacting with this community because lets not forget, you made these people feel unsafe and misunderstood in the first place, they will feel more confident and justified in abusing real children or obtaining CP. 

Do you see why violent hate is NOT okay?

You may say to me that “MAPS should to get therapy” if you arent into the violent hating stuff.

I would say to you that although your intentions are good, they are misguided by your faith in the medical system. A faith that is simply not there for MAPs.

MAPs often do not feel safe talking about their minor attraction with theripists because in many places in north america, that information IS NOT CONFIDENTIAL and there have been many cases of pedophiles being shoved into the sex offender registry with no convictions other than trying to seek help. They are literally punished for seeking help. It makes sense why MAPs wouldn’t want to seek “help”.

Yes, I put help in quotation marks because my next point. If by good luck your theripist doesn’t inform the authorities of your attraction, the help that theripists offer is often extremely limited. In short, theripists don’t know what the fuck to do with MAPs either because society has said the solution is jail/death. 

THERE IS NO STANDARD OF CARE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS FOR PEDOPHILES/MAPS IN MENTAL HEALTH. Most of it is about supress the feelings, occupy yourself with something else etc. But that method just doesn’t work for attraction. The patient is often left feeling just repressed or the same. So they stop going. 

My final point is something a lot of you might not know about because you simply don’t care. We actually know very little about about MAPs scientifically. We know a whole shit ton about child sexual abuse and abusers but MAP and CSA are not synonymous. Many violent sexual acts are not actually committed bu pedo/map individuals. Contrary to popular beleif, most MAPs dont want to hurt children because they love children.  Violent crimes against youth often comitted by people with Anti-Social Personality Disorder who choose children as they’re victims because it tends to be more thrilling for them. Reminder that ASPD individuals are low to no empathy. Most MAPs have regular empathy. 

Now, why don’t we have research on MAPs and pedophiles? Because research methods involve things like child shaped blow up dolls etc which are almost always rejected and confiscated by the country as things that support pedophelia. Victimless drawn material such as lolicon cannot be used in research because it’s illegal. So researches have a very difficult time researching pedophiles. Many pedophiles also do not want to come forward with helping researchers because pedophiles are so hated that they have very little legal lee-way if their information is leaked [and people WILL TRY EXTRA HARD TO LEAK THIS INFORMATION BECAUSE PEOPLE HATE PEDOS/MAPS]

TLDR:

You(society) hate MAP

MAP forced underground*

MAP encouraged by other radical MAPs to commit crimes

MAPs commits crime (and knows how to hide it too)

ALTERNATIVELY

You(society) hate MAP 

MAP seeks therapy

Theripist cannot help because theres no research

Researches cannot help because research materials are illegal

Research materials are illegal because society hates maps

MAP cannot get help

MAP commits suicide or back to the top *


Theres lots more to mention but I’ll stop there for now.

@daydream24-7 That’s what I feel like as well, which is why I never felt the need to clarify it any further. But since many people told me they were disappointed and felt bad and I lost a significant amount of followers (Which is not a problem itself, but I took it as a sign of them being disappointed/sad as well) I kinda felt morally obliged to. After all hurting anyone or making them feel bad is the last thing I wanna do, although on the other hand I think it’s very easy to disprove that this blog is official/hard to prove that it is if you try, so I have mixed feelings about it. I guess I just wanna be on the safe side for now. Thank you for your support anyway <3

2017.04.18 lynch. at Shinkiba STUDIO COAST

I got to Shinkiba quite late, so unfortunately lots of goods were already sold out, but I still managed to get the rubber band in the colour I wanted. Letting fans in was very smooth, inside it was very peaceful on the surface, but you could feel the hidden tension.
I had a late number but I could get quite close when the first song started and fans squeezed in, I stayed in 7~8 row in front of Hazuki for the whole show.
It was really good to see them, even if it was strange to see only 4 of them and the extra support members, who were changing between songs.

During MC it got really emotional with many fans crying, although band wanted everyone to leave with a smile.

I feel one of the most important bits Hazuki said was:

Even though his leaving is now official, lynch. is made of 5 people. It’s 5 people but at the moment we have to do it with only 4. So to fill that hole everyone please give us a hand!

Reo said that during those 5 months he hasn’t met anyone other than members and staff, like a hikkikomori, so seeing fans at Shinkiba he couldn’t help but smile.

Hazuki also talked about getting bass support members, they were thinking about AK fans who don’t want to see anyony else standing in that spot, so for now they decided not to get anyone permanently. That’s why the empty spot is still there and fans have to do their best and fill in during chorus parts. He said that Akinori is doing well.

Hazuki also talked about the time when they were searching for a new member in the past and how Yusuke - the cutie - joined them 3 old gramps. There was a really funny situation when some male fan shouted “cutie” to Yusuke, who promised to get to him after the show ;)

There was a point when Hazuki wanted to ask other members for MC (usually it would be Akinori) but he very jokingly chose Asanao ;)
I couldn’t really understand what he said except the first “Good evening!” but he did a great job firing everyone up (in a hilarious way).

Taurus Decans

~ Taurus Decan 1 (April 21st - April 30th) 

I am ruled by the planet Venus. My personality is characterised by determination, stability and sensuality. I am determined to get the things I want from life and will do everything in my power to achieve my goals. Material wealth is important to me and the acquisition of beautiful yet practical things fuel my desire to do well for myself. I seek stability in all aspects of my life including career, relationships and family life. In relationships, I am loyal and loving and forever faithful. In career too, I set my mind to a career path and seldom waiver from it, working my way to the top. Home life is very important to me and I strive to make my home as comfortable and comforting as possible. Because I am from the element of Earth, the sense of touch is very important to me. this makes me want to touch and be touched. And as I am ruled by Venus this makes me very sensual. I love to love and love to be loved in return.

~ Taurus Decan 2 (May 1st - May 10th) 

I am ruled by the planet Mercury. My personality is characterised by tactfulness, charm and practicality. Tact and diplomacy are my desirable attributes. I take care to gather all the facts before taking action or speaking my mind. I sense the feelings of others and take care not to unwittingly hurt anyone. I possess a lot of charm and charisma and have a brilliant way of communicating my ideas and points of view to others. People find me pleasant to be around. Although, I connect well with many people I have few friends. But the ones I do have are true and loyal. I set great store in being open and honest with friends and lovers. I have a very practical approach to life and rather than thinking or dreaming about what I want from life, I go out and get it. If something needs to be done I just do it. And I am happy working behind the scenes without fanfares or applause so long as the job gets done. When it comes to me, if a job is worth doing it’s worth doing well.

~ Taurus Decan 3 (May 11th - May 21st) 

I am ruled by the planet Saturn. My personality is characterised by loyalty, discipline and patience. I am fiercely loyal to all those I hold dear to me and will protect and defend them to the death. My sense of duty, loyalty and faithfulness is very strong. My home and family means so much to me and I will do my utmost to provide material wealth to make my home life secure and stable. I am ordered and disciplined and always finish any task I set for myself - on time and perfectly. Being from the element of Earth I am very hard working and strive for financial security. My steadfastness in squaring success is not for accolades, praise or applause but instead for the material wealth I can create. I have the patience of a saint and make for an excellent parent, teacher or mentor. My patience can be tested though by people who have fanciful ideas, flighty ways and don’t take anything serious. These people will invariably come from the Air element - I just don’t seem to get them. Most people would consider me to be very serious, but underneath my stern exterior I have a heart of gold. I am very humorous and sensual too.

I feel like...

I feel like I’m not really autistic :(
Although I have a professional diagnosis, I think I act less and less autistic nowadays.
When I was a kid, I was an almost stereotypical autistic person: a “little professor” obsessed with outer space and dinosaurs who remembered every single fact about them & prefered the company of adults than the other children. But on the other hand, I had a lot of friends & I liked to make new ones (I still do).
The older I am, the less I can relate to many autistic traits ad experiences (such as meltdowns/shutdowns or executive dysfunction - I don’t have any of these). I’ve also started think I have less and less social difficulties (or even that I’ve never had them!)
I was also diagnosed with OCD & I feel like what I (and one therapist) thought was caused by autism is actually an OCD-based! Does OCD has something similar to special interests? Cuz it’s my the most prominent autism trait.
Speaking of therapists, many of them negated my autism diagnosis, probably b/c I wasn’t a walking stereotype (or maybe b/c I’m a girl) :/

But the autistic community on Tumblr has showed me I have more autistic traits than I’ve thought (thank you all!) and this had helped me to accept my autism. However, I had found another term: “autistic cousins” and learned that OCD is one of them, which could also mean I’m not actually autistic & all of these traits are actually an OCD traits!
What to do? What if I’m not autistic? I’ve made many wonderful autistic friends online and I’m scared some of them would think I was faking! :(
Can you help me?

(oh and can I use the “actuallyautistic” tag? cuz I might be autistic, but also might not)

anonymous asked:

taekook for the domestic meme pls!

thanks!

Originally posted by bangtannoonas

who cooks normally?:

honestly…i’d be kinda worried about these two in that sense. but eventually, it’d be jungkook. but mostly they’d live off easy meals and their hyungs’ generosity.

how often do they fight?:

all the time. these 2 are competitive af and they kinda get annoyed easily and this goes double for each other. but it’s ok bc they forgive each other just as easily (they never forget though)

what do they do when they’re away from each other?:

send memes to each other. annoy the crap out of each other with ugly pics of the other that they have stashed on their phones for this exact occasion. they do send cute selfies and texts about their day but mostly just a lot of teasing. 

nicknames for each other?:

i feel like they wouldn’t have consistent nicknames for each other? or they’d call each other so many things that there’s no set nickname? if that makes sense.

who is more likely to pay for dinner?:

they’d split usually. once in a while one of them would pay. but mostly splitting the bill.

who steals the covers at night?:

hmmmm. there’s no cover-stealing probably bc taehyung latches on like a koala to jungkook. although jungkook does tend to kick off the covers in his sleep.

what would they get each other for gifts?:

for some reason, i feel like they wouldn’t be the couple to get gifts like that for each other? like maybe they’d try if they see their hyungs getting it for their s/o and wonder “should i do that” but then it’d feel forced and they’d both agree to not do unless they thought of it

but rarely, they might get a little trinket or something for the other (once they actually start on their careers anyway) outside of birthdays and anniversaries

mostly i feel like these two would value activities over gifts?

who remembers things?:

hmm this is funny bc i’d say both and yet neither? like they both have their moments of good memory but at the same time, they have moments where they can forget. but i think taehyung would be a tiiiiny bit better at it.

who cusses more?:

they both curse an equal amount lol

what would they do if the other one was hurt?:

physically, they’d take care of each other do what they can for the other.

emotionally, i think it’d depend on the situation and what kind of emotional hurt? i feel like they’d give the other space and try to kinda cheer them up and make them feel better but let the other sort out the actual problem themselves? unless it involves them or they come to the other first.

who kissed who first?:

taehyung, on advice from jimin. and taehyung would hate that period of uncertainty about whether jungkook likes him back or not so he’d be eager to get past it (and he trusts jimin’s judgment)

who made the first move?:

jungkook, actually ^^ he’s shy but he can be forward when he wants to.

who started the relationship?:

taehyung, again because he wants to know for sure where they are at and if they cna move forward. and jungkook is grateful for it bc he’s the same but he’s a little more apprehensive about saying it.


taekook is adorable! they’re both the youngest of the group and i feel like they’d seek the advice and care of their hyungs a lot still. at least until they get a little older maybe?

Send me a ship!

witty-witchy-ravenclaw  asked:

Do you prefer the old Pottermore where you could duel others and buy an owl and go on the tour thing through the illustrated scenes, or the new one? I feel like the new one is just a bit like a wikia and although I like hearing the stories behind characters, I feel like Rowling ought to stop because imo it spoils readers' own interpretations and theories, which is what I think is so special about the Potter fandom; that we have so many mind-blowing fan theories, ships, fanfictions etc.

I never personally saw the old version so the the new version is the only one I know. I definitely agree that it feels almost like a Wikipedia, it has a lot of fun information to gather. I also really do enjoy the theories that the fans make and the ideas that we come up with, I love that everyone interprets things different about the characters or the wizarding world. I think that as much as it does spoil the interpretations that people have of the world, it also helps improve them when you learn facts about it, you can improve on your own theories to make them even more possible then they might have been. I enjoy the creativity of the readers/fans and I enjoy reading the things that they/we come up with

DISCLAIMER: English is not my first language, so apologize beforehands for any awkward grammar and such. Corrections and suggestions are also always appreciated and welcomed!

Note that this is far from being complete though. I just decided to put everything in a same post so that it’d be more organized and easier for me to decide what are still missing and such. Also, these only applied to the lines being said by the bachelors to a girl MC, as some of the friendship lines will differ if you play as boy. May or may not update this.

When Being Indo-Caribbean is Just a Number

I live in New York City. One of the most diverse cities in the world, you don’t need me to tell you. Most of the activist work I do is in NYC and centers around South Asian communities. Here’s something interesting: 

Guyanese folk are the 5th largest immigrant group in NYC. (largely Indo-Guyanese)

Indians and Bengalis are 9th and 10th respectively. 

There are smaller groups of Indo-Caribbeans who migrate here from other countries, mainly Trinidad and Jamaica. 

Despite this, I can say with complete honesty and even regret, that not a single South Asian space I have ever been in has been run by Indo-Caribbeans. 

Not a single South Asian space I have ever been in has had more than 3 Indo-Caribbean participants at a time, myself included. 

In comparison with the few Indo-Caribbean specific spaces there are, to the many general South Asian spaces there are, the numbers are low and disheartening. 

There is an abundance of Indian, Bengali, and Pakistani participation in South Asian activism, which is great. But what does it say about the subcontinental diaspora when, although we outnumber them, they have access to greater amounts of resources? What does it say about how little Indo-Caribbeans are regarded as “real” South Asians when the solidarity South Asians seek and mission to build a community never reach us? 

I do not feel in solidarity with my diaspora. I do not feel like we are yet a whole community. 

I have always known, as my family has always known, and as I’m sure many other Indo-Caribbeans have always known, that subcontinentals have several issues with including Indo-Caribbeans in the diaspora and community spaces. This ranges from ethnic bigotry, to anti-blackness, to casteism, to just a pure lack of knowledge in their own history. 

Whatever the reason may be, to find out that there are empirical numbers that prove what we’ve all long suspected to be true, is sad to say the least. 

To all the South Asian organizers, activists, and leaders- Do more. Do better. 

The history of the painful colonization of the country you call home, is living, breathing, and manifesting in every Indo-Caribbean. Do your best to remember that. Use the tools and resources which you have privileged access to, to include Indo-Caribbean communities in your South Asian activism, otherwise call it “me activism”. Because without Indo-Caribbeans, that’s what it is. 

It hurts me to say this. It hurts me to acknowledge that even after fighting our way halfway across the world, and then some, my people are still not seen as good enough. 

South Asian solidarity can never exist, as long as the diaspora keeps pretending Indo-Caribbeans don’t either.

do victuuri omg!

wets the bed: yuri. poor nervous little baby would wet the bed before big competitions!

is more likely to have an accident in public: yuri. he’s very anxious and would probably forget to use the bathroom when supposed to, and would end up wetting himself as a result.

is more likely to purposely wet themselves in public: viktor. he’ll honestly do anything if it in some way benefits him let’s be real

is more likely to pee in an alley: viktor. he wouldn’t mind peeing in an alley or behind a tree if he had to. he’d embarrass the hell out of poor yuri though.

has the teeniest bladder of all time: yuri! if he actually doesn’t forget to use the bathroom when he’s nervous he’d instead do the opposite and go way too many times, making everybody worried about his health.

has a bladder of steel: viktor. after years of having to pee really bad while on the ice rink he’d get used to the feeling, although he still probably performs worse when holding.

squirms and whines when they have to go: yuri. if he has to go really badly and nobody more than viktor is around to head, he’d loudly whine about it and grip himself until the other can help him. (i feel this’d only be after about episode 5 or something, in the earlier episodes when yuri is still super nervous around his idol he’d literally do everything to be as quiet about it as possible)

locks the other out of the bathroom as a joke: viktor, probably. he’d laugh his hearty laugh and think it was all just fun and games until he hears a loud whine and the pitter patter of piss hitting he wooden floor~

moans in relief when they go: viktor, definitely. he has no shame, no filter. he’d moan loudly, even if if for instance yuri was taking a shower and viktor barges in to piss.

has a secret omorashi fetish: despite everybody thinking viktor is a kinky bastard, honestly i feel as if it’d be yuri. he’d never admit it and probably not act on it much, but the times he does accidentally stumble upon viktor peeing/the thought of viktor peeing or wetting, he’d definitely have to take a few moments to calm himself down.

Just finished the first draft of my novel-length* Ruby Redfort fanfiction and…. I gotta say, I am feeling super insecure about this.

*

It’s not just because it’s easily one of the longest things I’ve ever written (although that definitely is a huge factor) or because I’ve put so much thought into this (you have no idea how many nights I’ve stayed up brainstorming the plot) but it’s more to do with… the actual content? I guess??

Anyway the actual books are primarily written from Ruby’s perspective, which is great, but it frequently leaves me wondering what some of the other characters’ perspectives are like. And although this story is going to explore some other perspectives, and that’s definitely tons of fun to do, everything’s based on my interpretation, which has the possibility of being…… not so great. Or canonical.  

Or even interesting at all

Yeah. I’m pretty anxious about this. I kinda poured several months of work and part of my soul into this story and now I’m getting terrified of reading over it, let alone even thinking of posting it for the first time.

Hello! I was wondering if I could get an analysis of a Page of Heart ❤️ Seer of Doom. Thanks so much in advance💖

Page of Heart <3 Seer of Doom: The Page would have many emotional and self issues, and the Seer is somebody who doesn’t like getting close to people due to the fact that they know all about their deaths. Neither of them are the type to really reach out and try to pursue a relationship, but they both do want the closeness and love. I feel like they’d end up dating after growing close and having mutual feelings, but it’d start out feeling a bit weird, although they are good for each other. They’d definitely be a great couple if they could reach a point in which they are comfortable with dating.

Your posts about how Dan always compliments Phil and says he misses him are making my life. He's realy quite emotionally open, I think, when you get thought the layers of sarcasm and irony. So, it got me thinking, what do you think about how Phil expresses these things? I mean, obviously he likes Dan, duh. But I see him as much less open about his feelings. Like the difference between how they described each other in the SitC Book, you know?

I love this question. It is one that I have wanted to address since the original post on Dan (x). I think you are very much correct in the fact that Dan seems so much more emotionally open with us. I actually find it quite funny that although they are intensely private in many respects, Dan can really be quite the “sharer” at times. He offers a lot up about himself and his feelings in a way that almost starkly contradicts what you might expect of him. And in a way that sometimes opposes Phil’s form of public expression.

But everyone has different ways of showing affection. Dan is just quite obvious with his displays. He’s very present with his emotions and is all about communicating with words. And his face is an open book. It’s so easy to read how he might be feeling. But Phil…Phil has an incredible poker face. It’s very difficult to gauge what he’s thinking at times. He rarely gives too much away and can be quite closed-off. I get the sense that it is much easier for him to distinguish between being off camera and on, and knowing when to pull back to avoid private territory.

So they certainly have different approaches, at least when on camera. Where Dan is all about words, I’ve always pegged Phil to be a man of gestures. I feel like he might show his appreciation and love through actions the most.

It’s simple things. Like making Dan a cup of coffee or answering the postman for him in his pajamas. Or starting the stir-fry before the liveshow is over. Or listening to him waffle during an existential crisis. It’s sneaking McDonald’s into the hospital for him when he’s sick. And getting everyone in the audience to cheer for Dan at the anti-bullying campaign. Or planning a trip to Japan for them when they desperately need a break. And saving Dan from the giant moths and spiders when they infiltrate the flat (x). Or talking a mile per minute because he hasn’t seen him in like 10 hours and now there’s so many thoughts he wants to share. The little things that convey a lot.

It’s things like the “Reacting to Old Photos” video. The way he captures the unassuming moments. The ones that to anyone else seem quite ordinary on the surface. When Dan is completely unaware, looking away or occupied by a task, just candidly himself. You can guess that Phil must have noticed the beauty in those moments or saw something special that made him feel compelled to immortalize them in some way. And we only saw the smallest portion of those photos…god only knows how many have been taken over the last 6 years. (cont)

Could you do a lazy night in with Taehyun? I'd love to imagine a cosy date with him, it'd be so fun! :) x

Schedules & Movies

Genre: Fluff

Rating: G

Summary: Taehyun is usually busy with his music, but he never fails to make time for you. A lazy night with your boyfriend, good food and a few laughs ensues. But will your conversation turn into the sound of bells?


With your comfortable sweats, bowls of popcorn, chips and a box of pizza on display on the coffee table, you were ready for a fun night with your long term boyfriend,Nam Taehyun. It was one of those times where you guys get together and enjoy each other’s company. 


You sat on the grey sofa comfortably as Taehyun brought some drinks from the kitchen. 


You looked at him as he installed and connected the laptop to the television, his back facing you and his hair tied neatly, you couldn’t help but giggle at the familiar yet foreign sight of him. 


“What’s so funny?” He asked, still trying to figure out how to project it to the TV screen.


“Nothing.” You answered, “It’s just been a while since we last did this.”


“Well… Most of the time you’d set this up.” Taehyun replied, pressing random buttons.


“I really missed you..” You brought your knees together up to your chest, with a slightly withered voice.


He looked over his shoulder, he could sense your longing and felt guilty because it was partly because of him. Taehyun went over to your side, taking you to his arms with a warm welcome to his chest and a soothing rub to boot. You could feel him he was genuinely sorry. You looked up to him with a small smile on your lips, sweetly giving him a quick peck as you swiftly got the remote beside you and successfully projecting the desktop to your TV screen.


“What do I do without you?” Taehyun laughed awkwardly, pulling away as he reached for the bowl of popcorn and making himself comfortable on the couch.


“Nothing.” You joked as you placed your head on his shoulder.


“You’re right.” He agreed, giving your temple a soft kiss. 


Come to think of it, he was so busy with his music that he didn’t even notice you had your hair trimmed. His eyes were on you, taking a wiff of your hair and even placing a kiss on top of your head. Taehyun felt genuinely thankful to have you. He tends to be hard on himself most of the time and focuses a lot on making new songs which can be stressful, he feels lucky to have you where he can freely breathe with ease and have a good time despite so many thoughts that worries him.


“How do you even put up with me?” Taehyun asked.


“The way you put up with me.” You responded with a smile, “We just understand each other perfectly, I guess.”


Taehyun from the get go was always a strong spirit, he was passionate and driven. But what surprised you about him was the effort he puts into with your relationship. He never fails to make you feel loved and cared for. Although he may not be around sometimes, you could always feel the sincerity and affection he gives you. You wrapped your arms around him, feeling his heartbeat pound inside of him.


“I’m quite the catch, you know.” You giggled, joking as the movie started.


“You are???? But you steal all the food though..” He laughed, earning him a playful slap from you.


“I’m basically marriage material.” You rolled your eyes.


Taehyun stayed quiet for a minute, he looked like he was deep in thought, humming lightly in the process.


“What?” You ask out of curiosity.


“Nothing.”


“What? Just tell me.”


“I was just thinking that you’re right. You are marriage material.” Taehyun said nonchalantly, which you responded with a shrug. Unbeknownst to you, a small velvet box took refuge in his big guitar case for a few months now, waiting to be given at the right moment.
