and because i love her hair

anonymous asked:

You seem to be one of the few well-adjusted and nice feanorian fans I know. But it could be I'm just not looking in the right places?

I don’t know if I’d call myself a Feanorian fan per se (….or nice and well adjusted) but maybe that is why I’m tolerable?

Anyway, terminology aside, I think the trick of finding cool folks in fandom, especially when it comes to controversial (i.e. kinda shitty) characters, is looking for people with a sense of humour, both about the characters they love and about themselves. 

(This gets weirdly meta because @emilyenrose and I were just talking about how important having a sense of humour about yourself is for the characters of the Silmarillion - in her words, “humour is perspective with good grace!” - but the same is just as true of us. The Tragic Adventures of The Bloodstained Son of Ill-fortune, King Hair, Dad Dad Jr et al are no less tragic because they’re really fucking silly, and the same applies to our own thousands of words of elven pornography and idiot discourse)

The other thing to remember is that liking horrible characters does not make you a horrible person. …but tying yourself in knots trying to make mass murderers somehow not responsible for their actions is really not a good look. 

All my mutuals are cool, chill people but I’m not sure who would object to being saddled with the label ‘Feanorian fan’? Leave a note if you are Nice and Well-Adjusted and still somehow want to be associated with idiot murderers. 

All the Risty stuff, you guys, holy shit. I remember when she was first appearing, before we knew who she was, and our favourite theory was that she was Psylocke. English, purple hair, acting a little weird sometimes (we thought maybe it was a Mojo thing).

NOPE THOUGH

MYSTIQUE

BEING TERRIBLE

Mystique, befriending her own daughter, in part to gain access to her enemies, and in part because she just loves Rogue and wants some kind of connection with her. BUT SHE’S TERRIBLE AND ALSO KIND OF EVIL AND THIS IS HER BEST SOLUTION.

They laid the bricks for all of this so well throughout multiple seasons of the show. Risty first appears and befriends Rogue in the beginning of Season 2. Their friendship builds until Rogue discovers it was really Mystique the entire time (this episode, which is mid-way through Season 3), leading Mystique to make EVEN WORSE CHOICES leading to catastrophic failure between them, and by the time of Season 4′s opening, Rogue isn’t just damaged by the experience, but FURIOUS, and not coping very well at all. One of my greatest regrets with the show is that we’ll never get to see her try and come back from that. It makes my heart sad, it truly does.

But yes, point being that the creators sowed the seeds of this storyline for Rogue for OVER TWO SEASONS, and were developing it out so far, they didn’t even get a chance to really finish it. I can’t say enough how much I love that kind of slow, nurtured growth, and that it directly revolved around my girl?

YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE

Risty’s accent is really terrible though. Come on, Mystique, we both know you can do better than that.

What would be Hidan's ideal type?

With the way he drones on and on about everything, he prefers something that is barely dressed and flirty. Also, someone he can battle and teach the ways of Jashin to. I BELIEVE HE NEEDS SOMETHING ELSE. I think his idea type would be a well dressed woman, but sexy clothing at the same time. She needs to be fearless and be able to put her foot down and say no to his ridiculous plans. She needs to be forgiving because I’m sure he’ll strike a nerve multiple times. She needs to love him unconditionally, and besides that…color, hair, height…those things don’t matter. -Sasori

They were far out from shore now—it was a shining line in the distance, the highway a ribbon of moving lights, the houses and restaurants along the coastline glimmering. “Well, as it turns out, my parents didn’t die in the ocean.” Emma took a shuddering breath. “They didn’t drown.”

“Knowing that doesn’t wipe out years of bad dreams.” Julian glanced toward her. The wind blew soft tendrils of his hair against his cheekbones. She remembered what it felt like to have her hands in that hair, how holding him had anchored her not just to the world, but to herself.

“I hate feeling like this,” she said, and for a moment even she wasn’t sure what she was talking about. “I hate being afraid. It makes me feel weak.”

“Emma, everyone’s afraid of something.” Julian moved slightly closer. “We fear things because we value them. We fear losing people because we love them. We fear dying because we value being alive. Don’t wish you didn’t fear anything. All that would mean is that you don’t feel anything.”

“Jules—” She started to turn toward him in surprise at the intensity in his voice, but paused when she heard Cristina’s footsteps quicken, and then her voice, raised in recognition, calling:

“Mark!”

The next girl you’ll love,

she will be pink blossoms

and nectar lips,

she will kiss you like dawn

and sleep with you like sunset.

She will love you differently

and will touch you like healing,

her hair a fistful of tender

songs to lull you at night

and I,

well
I will be another ghost

you’ve long since grew out of

and on those rare times

you are weak enough for me

to haunt you,

you’d wake up to her hand

stroking your back;

her whispers drowning out

our daunting past because

what was I,
but a mirror to your demons
and all I’ve done was
bring out the worst in you -
the kindest favor I ever did
was to let you go.

“I just can’t wait to forget how much it hurts,” she said. My little sister, 17 and naive and so in love, had woken me up at 2am, crying because her boyfriend had broken up with her. “I never want to remember what I’m feeling right now.”

I pet her hair back as her head laid in my lap. “But you will remember it,” I told her. “You always will. Even ten years from now, when three other boys have come and gone since him, you will remember it. Because this is the only time you will have believed every word he said. This is the only time your whole heart will get involved. This is the only time you will be blindsided.” I swallowed the lump in my throat. “You’ll remember this pain for the rest of your life. But pain is natural. It’s how we protect ourselves.”

I was listening to an NPR podcast recently and they were talking about Sherlock. One woman said “John’s love for Sherlock is intense but platonic, and Sherlock’s love for John is romantic but not sexual.” And the other panel members were like mmm, interesting, yes, great observation.

And I mean. On the one hand, congrats on admitting it’s not just a bro thing. On the other hand…fuck you, a little bit? Because let’s just imagine Sherlock was played by a woman. A tall, slender, raven-haired woman with killer cheekbones. John Watson is sitting across from her at a candlelit table in the first episode. He licks his lips before asking if she has a boyfriend, a girlfriend? No? She’s single like him, good. Anyone on this earth gonna say “oh well his feelings are clearly intense, but platonic"? Nope.

Imagine this woman repeatedly poking fun at John’s mustache (because she can’t bring herself to ask if he’s going to keep his fiancee) and then John shows up at the flat they used to share and he’s shaved it off. And this woman, she looks John Watson in the eyes and tells him in a low voice that she prefers her doctors clean shaven. Still romantic but not sexual? Anyone? Bueller?

It’s just frustrating to hear a panel of liberal fans of this show spouting intellectual-sounding shit about the John/Sherlock relationship that seems progressive on the surface but really just makes excuses for why it can’t be what it would SO OBVIOUSLY be TO EVERYONE ON THE PLANET if they weren’t both men––a slow burn romance with mutual sexual tension.

Anyway. Preaching to the choir here but I needed to vent.

Victuuri Week: Day 5

(Yuuri: Family) 

I like to think that they’d be the best dads seeing as they both have so much love to give. 

My headcanons for the kid include:

  • her being influenced by Yurio’s style
  • the triplets taking her under their wing immediately because they’ve always wanted a younger sibling
  • Victor doing her hair all the time and she loves the little braids he does

Also if you’re wondering how Makkachin is still alive, it’s because she’s immortal. Everyone is immortal, no one’s dying. 

Confession

My black-dick-loving white coworker asked me if I could box braid her hair. I usually don’t cosign white people rocking black hair styles, but when it comes to collecting my coins….☺️I told her I’d charge her $215 which is $100-$140 more than I charge for others.She asked me why that much, and I said it was because the style is not meant for her hair texture and it would be a struggle for me to do. I think she got offended because she hasn’t spoken to me since . Sorry not sorry!😂💀

the calendar // panic! at the disco

“You never loved me anyways.” She whispered. I looked at the woman in front of me. Her long dark hair, she cut it all off. She looked more mature, confident, but yet so fragile when she saw me. I wanted to protect her from all the harm, danger and pain. I wanted to wipe away the tears she wasted on me.

“Don’t look for me anymore.” Lie. When she noticed me, I felt my world stopped spinning. The way her brown eyes always sparkled. I remembered how she hated them because she was jealous of mine. Though she will never see it the way I do. Her eyes hid a story, the only story I want to read for the rest of my life. Only one look at her and all my pain vanished away.

“You need to find someone else.” Lie. I want you to fight for me, fight for my demons, to get me out of here. Fight for me like you always used to do. I want you to win me. I know loving me was the hardest yet easiest thing she has ever done. She looked at me, she was trying to read my eyes. That was her magic, she never believed my words and looked for the truth in my eyes. Her eyes brought such warmth with her, every time I looked at her, I knew I was home.

“There is no hope left for us.“

“Lie.” She whispered.

Theory: Chloe redemption would be so distinctly ~her~ that as much as she enjoys fighting akumas with LB, a girl just can't leave her hair and nails undone! So Chloe would just be so tired of her appointments being cancelled by akuma attacks. . .

… She just learns to keep quiet so she could actually make it to a manicure because, girl, fighting super villains takes a TOLL, and … Yea …

see that’s the kind of redemption arc i want. chloe becomes a hero, but she is still so completely chloe. i love that idea up there xD

  • like chloe would be a fucking brutal, bad ass superhero and put her heart and soul into the fight but god forbid she breaks a nail 
    • queen bee: *kicking an akuma’s ass* *suddenly stops and screams in horror*
    • ladybug: oh my god, are you okay?
    • queen bee: NO im not okay i just chipped my fucking manicure
  • she always asks the team if they can reschedule patrols that don’t happen during the new episodes of “the bachelor”
    • “i can’t be behind im gonna get spoiled on twitter and i’ll fucking kill someone if that happens”
  • she’ll purposefully get someone really angry and hope they get akumatized so that her test next period will be cancelled
    • marinette keeps trying to explain why she can’t be doing that but chloe doesn’t get it
    • “we learn more about hawkmoth, another civilian is saved, and i have an extra 24 hours to study for math. find me one flaw with this.”
  • she tries to sneakily drop hints to her father that queen bee and volpina should get a statue too
    • “you know. not that i care or anything. just for….symmetry. and accuracy and all that. got some preliminary sketches of the queen bee statue. again. not that i care or anything”
    • “very important to get the nose right daddy don’t mess that up.”
  • post-reveal situation, chloe’s is hands down the best at coming up with believable covers for her teammates 
    • adrien’s taking forever to recharge his kwami and get back to class and the teacher’s wondering where he is
    • chloe: “the poor darling’s been modeling so much lately that he pulled a muscle in his neck after gym classes, really awful business, he was in the nurse’s office during the entire akuma attack, he should be on his way back.”
      • chloe *texting adrien*: there’s a forged nurse’s slip in the boys bathroom, go get it. also, walk in like you have a stiff neck. don’t ask. just do it. 
  • she low-key supports chat’s idea of having a miraculous hide out for the four of them
    • “daddy knows a guy that can make it happen with no questions asked i just need to make the phone call.”
  • she flat out refuses press interviews unless she has a full face of makeup on
    • “queen bee! an interview for the – ”
    • “darlings, i really would, but it’s seven in the morning, i have no concealer on, and there’s no way im appearing on camera. go talk to ladybug.”

shay and hunk are the softest…. shay will give hunk’s hands little kisses when they hold hands for the first time and hunk starts blushing like he’s on fire even though her lips are cold bc.. rock. hunk does the thumb stroke along her cheeks when they kiss. shay petting his hair because it feels nice against her fingers. hunay…..

one of the things i love most about 21 chump street is the evolution of Anthony singing “light-skinnded, Puerto Rican, long hair, mature in the body, like woah” because at the beginning of the musical it’s so eager and hopeful and goofy and you can tell how infatuated and loony he is for her!! but after she betrays him and everything goes to dust and he sings it again his voice is DEVOID of hope and he sounds so defeated and crushed and he knows what he’s done wrong and his tone is so mournful.. like damn. talk about character development in sixteen minutes

And my god, I hope you wake up one morning to someone who loves you like you’re a sunflower and they’re desperate to keep you alive.
I hope you dance with them in the small space of your kitchen floor, messy hair and tired eyes because you both been up all night watching movies again.
I hope you laugh with them in a way you never did with anyone else, head tilted back and lips apart as you let out every sound your laugh can possibly make and I hope to god you don’t try to cover your mouth. And if you do, because that’s okay, I know I sometimes do, I hope they stop you.
I hope they grab your hand before it ever comes in contact with your lips and I hope they hold it to their chest as they watch you with kind loving eyes. Because fuck, everyone knows you deserve it. And I hope you find someone who’ll accept you.
I hope they accept your messy hair in the early morning of the day and I hope they accept the way you sometimes talk too much and can’t seem to stop when you’re nervous or how you still cry yourself to sleep on some nights.
I hope they hold you and kiss you on the places where you’re most insecure at and I hope to god you let them.
I hope you find someone who makes you happy, even when you feel like sometimes, life is too hard for you. And I hope that when you both come across a tough situation and it comes down to a choice where you are one of them,
I hope they choose you. Every goddamn time, I hope they choose you.
