and getting shit off my chest

anonymous asked:

What if trini could longboard and everybody finds out and they expect her to be all hardcore about it but then she shows them her skills and she's really smooth and elegant (see hyo_joo on Instagram for reference) and everybody is SHOOK

Not gonna lie to you but I actually had a skater!Trini on my list of ideas and I got so excited when I got this ask because it finally gave me motivation to write. Also, your prompt is so much better than my original idea! Thanks for sending this! Last thing, I love Hyo Joo so much, I’ve been following her for a long time!

“Miss Gomez, no skateboarding at the halls!” A booming sound from a teacher made its way through the halls and all eyes were suddenly on the small girl with two Krispy Kreme coffees on her hand and a small bag of donuts hanging by her mouth, the bag being bitten by her teeth. Trini puts a foot down on the ground, slowly stopping her accelerated motion.

“Sorry, won’t happen again” Trini says in a small voice, balanced the two coffees in her arm then picks up her longboard in between her body and arm to grab the other coffee.

The coffee was quickly snatched out of her hand by girlfriend who bites her lip.

story time: i auditioned for juilliard about 4 weeks ago and in the audition room one of the alumni came up to a group of people i was with and said

“….u talking about glenn howerton? oh boy. okay so my friend went here a while ago and– this was a few years after sunny really got big– glenn was. HERE. for some reason and he silently stepped in the elevator. it was just him and my friend there, and staring straight ahead after a silent minute glenn goes

‘this place still full of shit?’

and my friend was like 'uh… i guess? i don’t really… i don’t… i don’t know.’

and glenn goes 'good. you’re not supposed to know.’

and silently walks off the elevator”

and i needed to get it off my chest its been weighing me down for too lomg

3

i actually could not stop thinking about this……..

I’m just tired, man. Like there’s so much angry and negativity in the world, and the one safe place I had for the last few years, the place where I found strength to get out of a really bad situation in my life, is gone. Poof.

Maybe I’m being over-dramatic, God knows I am so often, but this one took a lot from me. 

Look. Felix (Pewdiepie) made a mistake, he thought his little “joke” was comedy, but as someone who’s been studying comedy for the past four fucking years, racism is not comedy. If you’re gonna target a group of people for the sake of a joke, you make damn sure they deserve it. Jewish people do not deserve it. Saying “death to” a group of people who have had the fucking shit kicked out of them for centuries is not fucking funny. It’s sad and, quite honestly, lazy. What pisses me off is that instead of 100% owning up to it, he’s trying to write it off as a “joke gone wrong.” Buddy. Admit you fucked up big time. Admit the joke was not funny and that it wasn’t humor. It was not comedy. By calling it comedy, you offend people who pour their heart and soul into making the masses laugh and feel good. 

And then, major Youtubers backed him up, saying he’s “just being himself.” People like Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, Lordminion777, all people who in the past have supported love and acceptance. People who I’ve looked up to for years. Hell, I’d go as far to say Mark was an idol of mine. However, they all backed up someone who is too much of a coward and too into himself to admit he made a mistake. 

As someone who really admired these people, I’m hurt as hell. 

As someone who’s studied communications and public relations for the last four years, I’m pissed off as fuck. You wanna support him? Fine. But don’t try to step back from repercussions of doing so. You went into this mess, you STAY in. Pewdiepie landed himself in hot water and by supporting him just being his wacky ol’ self, you jumped right in too. I understand standing up for a friend, but if my friend went and pulled some shit like that? You bet your ass I’m calling them out. To pull from Harry Potter books, if Neville Longbottom can stand up to his friends, so can you.

To conclude, jokes about killing minorities isn’t comedy. If you try to use them for comedy, you’re lazy and you’re pretty pathetic. Pewdiepie is a grown adult, and needs to be held accountable for his actions.       

Wipe it off of me-Jughead Jones

Pairing: Jughead x reader
Description: Archie and Veronica start talking about some of their sexual experiences, which sparks the readers interest, and it doesn’t go unnoticed by her boyfriend. Basically Jughead is a little shit (prompt #7 requested)
Warnings: Sin, but not full sin, like, half sin. 50% sin. and I’m going to hell
——————————————————————–
It was obvious that Archie and Veronica weren’t virgins. It was totally ok, and nobody in our group of friends minded, at least half the school was having sex, which I guess was normal in this day and age, but it was still almost like, an elephant in the room, like, a baby elephant, but an elephant nonetheless. The conversation I had been dreading was eventually going to come up, and it did. I was hoping that maybe it wouldn’t be brought up so soon after the whole Archie and Miss Grundy incident, but of course, Kevin had to open his big, fat mouth.

“So, I just need to know, what was it like having sex with a teacher Arch?” Kevin leaned forward in his chair, looking at Archie expectantly. Archie tensed up and his hand stopped strumming his guitar that sat in his lap.

Kev! Oh my god” Betty smacked his arm, giving him a cross glare

“I mean, if we can’t talk about it, then we shouldn’t be doing it, right?” Kevin pointed out, looking around at us. I shifted uncomfortably on the couch I was sat on by my boyfriend, Jughead. We had been dating for 8 months now and hadn’t really discussed anything like this.

“I mean, Kevin has a point.” Veronica agreed, crossing her arms nonchalantly.” If you’re going to have sex you should be able to talk about it. It’s important to discuss it, make sure you’re doing it safely, especially at our age. The last thing we need is one of us getting pregnant.”

“Yeah, yeah, anyways what positions did she make you do?” Kevin turned his attention back to the boy and Betty yelped again.

“Uh, well, a lot of it was just missionary. She rode me a few times, we did maybe a couple different ones…” Archie trailed off.

“Did you guys fuck in her car?” I saw Jughead roll his eyes out of the corner of my eye as he typed away on his laptop.

“Uh, yeah, a couple times…” Archie’s face went red.

“Well, I for one have tried many different things, many different kinks, many different genders.” Veronica smirked at her last few words and Betty’s jaw practically fell to the floor.

“Oh, do tell” Kevin wore a shit eating grin on his face as he turned his attention to Ronnie.

“Dude, don’t you like dick? Archie asked him, an eyebrow raised

“Oh, Archiekins, just because I swing left doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the sexual stories provide by the right swingers.” Archie still looked confused and Kevin sighed in an irritated manner.
“Just because I’m gay doesn’t mean straight sex repulses me.” Kevin huffed, explaining to Archie. “You may be pretty but you sure aren’t bright.”

Ronnie began to fill us in on her sexual experiences, and Jughead ignored the conversation, typing away on his laptop instead. I, however, gave my full attention to the stories Ronnie told, my heart racing as I began to think about a few of the scenarios with somebody else in mind.

After school, I went straight home, taking the stairs two at a time and opening my laptop. I began to look up some of the stuff Ronnie told the group about. I was impressed, disgusted, and horrified all at once.

“Hey, I know you said you were busy, but I brought Pop’s.” I slammed my laptop shut as quick as I could, turning in my chair to see Jughead with a take-out bag.

“Woah, what’s up?” Jughead set the food down on my nightstand, looking at me as I tried to look casual. My cheeks were as red as Archie’s hair, and I knew at any second I was going to get busted.

“Y/n, what’s on the computer?” Jughead raised an eyebrow. He leaned down so he was eye level with me, both hands resting on either side of my wheely chair.

“N-nothing.” I stammered, his face dangerously close to mine.

“Really? Because I saw how interested you looked while Veronica shared her “stories”, earlier. Care to explain?” Jughead leaned in closer, turning his head a bit as if he was getting ready to kiss me. Before I could process what was happening, Jughead pushed my chair all the way in to the corner of my room and had my laptop open, typing in my password.

“Asshole!” I screamed, jumping up from the chair and shoving him down on to my bed. It was too late though, he had already seen my computer screen.

Wow, y/n, this is a whole new side of you.” Jughead teased, a smirk on his lips as his hands rested on my hips. I whacked his chest with the palm of my hand before getting up and closing the tabs on my computer

“Honestly, if you wanted sex this bad you could have just told me.” Jughead sat up on my bed, a shit eating grin resting upon his lips.

“Lose that grin, Wednesday Addams.” I leaned against my desk, my arms crossed.

“Why don’t you come over here and wipe it off of me?” Jughead leaned back, an eyebrow raised in expectation. I blushed, my mouth opening but no words coming out.

Really, y/n? You’re going to make me do all the work/” Jughead stood from my bed, walking over to me and pressing his body to mine. He leaned down, pressing his lips to mine. He wrapped his arms around my thighs, lifting me so they were now wrapped securely around his waist and stumbling backwards to the bed. My hands went to his air, knocking off his beanie and running my fingers through his black locks. His tongue slipped past my lips, his arms pulling me closer to his body.

Jughead’s lips left mine after a few moments of kissing, trailing down my cheek and jaw to my neck. He bit down gently on the spot below my ear, puckering his lips and sucking until a satisfying dark shade of purple was left. I let out a heavy breath, my hips bucking down against his involuntarily.

“We probably shouldn’t be doing this; my mom could be home at any moment.” I panted.

“You’re probably right.” Jughead breathed, pressing a kiss to my jaw. “Rain check?”

“Definitely.” I leaned down, kissing him again. Jughead leaned back on my bed, pulling me down with him.

“Y/n?” Jughead looked up at me, his fingers running through my hair. “You can talk to me about these kinds of things, you know. I don’t want you to feel like you have to hide them from me.” Jughead pressed a kiss to my cheek. After a few more minutes of cuddling, I got up, grabbing my laptop from my desk. I opened Netflix and put something on to watch as we cuddled in my bed, eating takeaway from Pop’s.



And I totally used that raincheck the next weekend.

He just groans and rolls over.

“No. We have school today and you have to get up! We’re gonna be late.” You grab his arm and tug.

He tugs back, pulling you against his chest. “A few more minutes, (Y/n).” He leans down and kisses down your jaw.

You let out a whimper as he nibbles down your neck, leaving hickeys along the way.

“Fine.”

Backflips are Impractical

Context: The party consists of a barbarian, a cleric, a paladin, a rogue, a wizard, and a monk with a coffin in his back. Our first dungeon, just about to wrap it up after fighting 2 evil chests. I, the monk, decide I wanna get rid of the third evil chest before we go.

Me: I wanna just stab the chest

DM: roll to hit

Me: *hits, then is first in initiative and hits two more times.*

Me: okay and I wanna backflip away to the group

Me: *rolls a natural one*

Barbarian OOC: That’s exactly what I was hoping would happen

Dm: You try to do a cool backflip but land on your back and the plot armor coffin and you’re stuck like a flipped turtle. You take a -3 to pride

The barbarian then reluctantly finishes it off while I try to get upright again

Okay…I’m worried I’m going to lose followers for this and I’m really scared about speaking up about stuff because I’m afraid someone will get upset with me…but can I just say something??

Even if you think PewDiePie is still a bad person after his sincere apology, please don’t bring Markiplier and JackSepticEye into this because they defended their friend they know in real life. They know each other as Felix, Mark, and Sean, which is seperate from their comedic personalities they have on for the camera. You have to remember they’re real, genuine human beings that support each other because they’re friends.

And why are so many people bent on running other people’s careers to the ground? Nobody’s perfect, obviously, so I’m sure everyone has said something that has offended someone at some point in their life, even if it wasn’t to their face.

Felix apologized and acknowledged he took the joke too far, and because other people turned down his requests on the same site (which were not similar in any case, and were practically harmless jokes) and he believed they would turn down his request to hold up the sign. At that point, he didn’t realize that they wouldn’t understand what was being written in English.

If you watch the actual original video he realizes once they actual replied to his request how shocked he was to see they actually did it. He apologized in a video shortly after, then made the newest video in response to how the media blew it out of proportion, and in addition made a tumblr post about it.

He also made it VERY CLEAR, that he does not support ANY kind of hatred, and although some of his jokes can be distasteful or offensive to some people, he NEVER means them sincerely and admits that he’s a “rookie comedian” and he’s just testing boundaries to create comedy. He knows what happened crossed a line, and he apologized.

I’m not defending Felix’s actions and I believe that joke crossed a boundary. I’m not supporting anything anti-Semitic in any way whatsoever, and I’m not a fascist or anything like that, and neither is Felix.

But I also don’t think it’s okay to bully someone because they made an honest mistake in regards to comedy. I don’t think it’s okay to cancel a show hundreds of people worked on because of it. People have been pushing comedic boundaries for years, and yes, jokes can go too far.

But I want to make it
ABSOLUTELY 100% CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT I DO NOT THINK THAT JOKE WAS OKAY.

At the same time, a joke is a joke, and maybe if people stopped making Hitler jokes and 9/11 memes, it wouldn’t be considered as a form of comedy. If anything, it points out the faults that the internet has as far as comedy goes, because it’s the weirdness, bluntness, and anonymity of the internet that allows these types of jokes to be acceptable whereas they aren’t in real life. Yet again, you can’t control what people can say and do as far as that goes because of free speech, but people need to understand there are lines and boundaries.

Sometimes certain topics should be kept off limits as comedy, but a lapse in judgement as for what is considered comedic does not call for the destruction of someone’s career (and other people associated with them) because of the clickbait headlines that are spread by untrustworthy media sources.

i heard @nihilist-toothpaste wanted ridiculously soppy dan-deciding-to-stay-in-florida. this happened. hi.

Sunrise comes soft and Easter-egg yellow, seeping into the sky like honey, the salty-fresh wind off the waves cutting through the warmer night air. Phil’s hand is cold and comforting in Dan’s – the beach is empty – they’re walking much closer than they usually do and Dan can’t bring himself to care very much.

“I’m going to miss you,” Dan says, quiet. Phil smiles at him sideways, crooked and bittersweet. His sunglasses cover his eyes, but Dan knows the expression in them all the same.

Tracy McConnell and Robin Scherbatsky DESERVED BETTER.

I’m still fucken bitter about this.

Tracy was used for creating the children that Ted wanted for him,
and then to go to Robin Scherbatsky (the ex-wife of one of your dearest friends), and just what “get back together”??

Was he in love with her the entire duration of his relationship/marriage with Tracy?

And Robin Scherbatsky, the woman who OVER AND OVER made it clear that she never loved Ted, in that way. THrough multiple seasons. To THEN just get together with the man that baggered her for quite some FUCKEN time. 

Honestly, I love, and hate, all the neckbeards getting mad about someone shipping Mc.Han.zo or Ph.ar.mer.cy and saying all this borderline homophobic shit to justify themselves and using the counter argument that the only canon LGBT person confirmed is Tracer and that there should never be any gay people in their precious vidya gayms.

Like, honestly???? it has no affect on the game nor should it be a deciding factor. How sheltered are you that you get your neckbeard in a knot over some fictional shipping in your manly video game???? Jesus, man. get over it.

and i love it even more when Jeff Kaplan, himself, says that the characters are just as much ours and he’s curious to see what we do, as a fandom.

so, goddamn neckbeards, get over it.

a message to exclustionists who pull the “aces are valid they’re just not lgbt(pn)!” thing, along with “we accept the lgbt(pn) aces!” thing. do you honestly think that any of us “actually lgbt(pn) aces” trust you for one second when you…

- proudly call yourselves “aphobes”
- mock, deride, and misuse a-spec terminology
- mock “ace tumblr” as though it’s an eeeeeevilll hivemind
- say the spilt attraction model is inherently homophobic/problematic for anyone to use, ever
- say that otherwise marginalized people (disabled people, people of colour, etc) identifying as asexual is responsible for the desexualization of their respective groups
- mock a-spec labels
- say that asexuality should not be taught as an orientation that exists when teens are taught sex ed
- suicide bait people in the positivity tag (which is used by more than just cis + heteroromantic aces jsyk)
- spam and invalidate people in the positivity tag
- tell people who identify as ace and are minors that they are inherently sexualizing everyone else (like, say, me)
- make disgusting “moodboards” that compare aces (and they said “aces” not “cishet aces”) to awful, awful people
- talk about “MOGAI hell” orientations (and genders. you are aware this is a truscum thing, correct?)
- and generally talk about asexual people as being the lowest scum of the earth

Now There’s Your Pickup Line

Sterek, 2K, T

AU, First Kiss, New Year’s Eve

Prompted from the screenshot of that cop on Tinder with the bio: “Ever shouted Fuck the Police? Well, here’s your chance.”


Derek shut the door behind him with a sigh and sat down on the floor, stretching his legs out in front of him. He hated parties, and he was pissed that Laura had dragged him to the New Year’s Eve one she was hosting at her apartment. She did a really good guilt trip, though, so Derek was there. And now, he was curious how long it would take her to realize that he was hiding in her closet. He was hoping for at least a 20-minute break away from the endless small talk.

He pulled out his phone and swiped idly through the app screens, hovering his thumb over the little flame icon. Laura had created a Tinder account for him a few weeks ago—very much against his wishes—but he’d only been on it a couple times, and he’d never swiped right for anyone. He’d never really done the online dating thing; it just hadn’t really appealed to him. It seemed to encourage quick decisions based just on someone’s looks, and well…Derek had enough of that already.

He was bored, though, so he opened the app and immediately swiped left, wincing at the cheesy shirtless mirror shot of the first guy that popped up. Derek swiped left again, for a girl whose bio just said NO DRAMA, and then couldn’t hold in the little snort at the bio of the next guy. “Ever shouted Fuck the Police? Well, here’s your chance.

Derek’s gaze drifted up to the photo, and he swallowed hard. This guy, Stiles, what kind of name was that, was seriously attractive. He was really working the cop uniform in the first photo, all broad smile and bright eyes. Probably taken at the pride parade, if the crowd behind him and the rainbow flag were any indication.

Derek swiped through the rest of the pictures—one of him with a dog, one of him shirtless on a beach, one of him playing what looked like a pickup baseball game—and audibly exhaled. He was definitely Derek’s type, tall and lean with broad shoulders. Before he could talk himself out of it, he swiped right. The app notified him of a match, and Derek couldn’t stop the little inward preen at the thought of this guy swiping right on him, too.

He ran with this foreign streak of courage and tapped the message button.

That is the worst pick-up line I’ve ever heard.

Derek had no idea what the typical messaging etiquette was on Tinder, but Stiles replied just a minute later.
