I just think it's funny how the fandom, who took sweet soft literary James Ashton completely for granted/ignored him, wants to try and say he was "out of control" in the last chapter. Like, please. He was stressed and freaking out because he thought you'd be there when you promised you would be and then you weren't and he's out of his depth with this leadership thing rn. He apologized immediately and was genuine about it. But NO, James is 'mean and a dick'. Like, gtfo my face before I smack u.

;( i agree tbh. he would be out of control if he hadn’t realized he snapped/hadn’t apologized. but he did! he recognized his behaviour and explained it came from his stress. i don’t know about yall but there have been MANY times where i have done the very same thing!!! people are really hard on james and it makes me sad sometimes. james is such a kindhearted character and i think he is placing EXTRA significance on this position because of how his movie deal went–he even mentions it in the beginning of the sophomore. he’s so worried that he won’t find his path or what he’s meant to do, so he is taking the newspaper super seriously if it should lead him to a career or something. not that his worry excuses any bad behaviour, no, that’s not what i mean tosay–i just think that’s why he’s so stressed

ppl should give him some slack!! he apologized and realized his actions were wrong. if he continues to be  mean then i understand, but i think we should reserve judgement for now. he made a slip and that’s all!!!!!!

Okay, so in honor of Descendants 2 coming out tonight, I thought I’d share a headcanon.

So, since Jafar was a sorcerer, I think he’d teach Jay some magic. Just a few lessons here and there, until he got pretty good. Of course, since they’re on the Isle, the magic lessons are useless.

Likewise, Jay never thought to tell anyone. Besides, his main focus was always stealing.

That is, until he got to Auradon. Jay would start trying to practice his magic in secret, until one day he made a mistake during a spell. Then, he would go to Mal for help.

Mal started giving him lessons, and teaching him the spells that she knew. They grew even closer due to their shared use of magic.

He even grew close to Jane, because she knows magic too. Soon enough, he’s just as good as Mal.

And even though they’re already good, Mal and Jay start a magic user’s club with Jane.
Jay makes friends with all the other kids who know magic, and learns so many more spells.

My dog gets hurt every time he gets groomed. He's a bergamasco sheepdog, so he has a ton of hair. Twice, groomers have cut him and caused him to have serious infections, and now, we tried ourselves and made the same mistake. He's terrified of anyone coming near him with anything that looks like it could be metal. We swore off groomers after that almost ended in his death both times, but now that we did the same, we don't know what to do. Do you think we should try groomers again, or ourselves?

Jeez, that’s really rough. I’m sorry it’s been so scary. For one, start doing counter-conditioning . desensitization protocols with metal things coming near him - not for grooming, just to help him be less freaked out overall when people walk around him carrying silverware to the table and such. 

Honestly, I think you need to contact some breeders who have that type of sheepdog and explain your situation and ask for their recommendations. If the whole breed is that difficult to groom, they will have specialized techniques to tell you about - and if it’s just him, they can hopefully provide you with enough information to make an educated decision. If you can find one close to you, they might even be able to recommend a trusted local groomer.

you can tell a lot about a matsu by the anime they watch. karamatsu made the mistake of confessing to watching hetalia because he thought france was a sexy mofo, and wound up with a callout post on tumblr, cringe screencaps, and his parents having to issue a formal apology for the disaster their painful son caused.

this is slander

How do you feel about people saying Seth is abusive towards Dean (in kayfabe obviously) people are saying he manipulated Dean during their segment and their relationship is toxic. and Dean is a victim of Seths abuse. it's in the ambrollins tag.

Ahahah omg I happened to read that shit in these days, and tbh I think it’s only rants of bitter fans of other ships who are jealous that Dean and Seth’s storyline is being so beautiful and well told unlike others.
Kayfabe wise, Seth made a huge mistake, we all know it. But he has learnt a very important lesson from his mistake. He said it loud and clear: to Corey Graves, when he was interviewed by him in the middle of the ring; to Bray Wyatt, when he told him he embraces his past mistakes instead of denying them, to Triple H himself when they signed their stipulation for Wrestlemania. How can he be an abuser or a manipulative friend when he asked Dean to hit him with the same weapon he used to betray him and Roman to be trusted again? He put his own body on the line for the sake of honesty. He wants to turn that page of his story, and so does Dean, otherwise he would have stepped out of the ring, or hit him with that steelchair as he had been asked. Because they still love each other despite everything, that’s why their feuds have always been so full of deep feelings.
Ehhhh, I’m sorry that some people can’t enjoy a good storytelling because they’re too focused on hating and being salty, but that’s their problem… I’m here on my hammock under the sun sipping my drink and relishing every minute of my craved reconciliation between my two boys AHAHAHAH 🍹

When they are seven, he reaches out to clasp her hand on their way to the gardens. (He is too young to know better, and she is only a month and a half older.) She doesn’t know what to do, so she ends up somewhere in between: not pulling away but not clasping back, either. It leaves her fingers loose in his grip, like a fish.

He looks back at her, confused.

Peko understands that she’s made a mistake, but she doesn’t know which mistake it is. Should she have pulled her hand away, to keep her distance? Or should she have held his, the way he obviously wanted her to?

He shakes her arm. “What?” he demands. “What’s that face? What?”

She’s upset him. She’s already doing this wrong. “I’m sorry,” she says. She curls her fingers in, just enough to keep her palm loose against his. “We can hold hands if you want to.”

His fingers wiggle. She’s too-aware of them in a way she’s never been before, warm and soft and a little clammy. She’s too-aware of hers, too, and how they don’t quite fit correctly with his anymore, like her hand is a jigsaw piece someone spilled water on.

“What’s that supposed to mean?” he says. “What’s the matter with you?”

“Nothing.” She’ll get better. She’ll be what he needs her to be. “We should go. We’ll be late.”

She starts to walk again, but he doesn’t follow her. He stays where he is until she’s far enough away to be tugging on his arm, and even then he only stares, his whole face pinched in toward the middle.

She does tug, gently. She feels her teeth on her bottom lip, old habit, and then she corrects herself, the way she practiced: “Young master.”

His hand goes flat. Her own fingers are still too loose, and he slips away from her without him having to pull at all. He folds his arms over his chest, his hands in his armpits.

“I don’t want to anymore,” he tells her. “Hand holding is for babies anyway.”

He brushes past her, his shoulders hunched. Her palm feels cold, now. She catches herself rubbing it with the thumb of her other hand.

She says, “Yes, young master,” to his retreating back.

"He made me this way on purpose:" Brave Mormon girl, 12, comes out as lesbian to entire church
The youngster, named Savannah, told the church that she believed God created her this way and there is nothing wrong with her
By Rhian Lubin

“A courageous Mormon girl aged 12 stood up to her church and came out as a lesbian to the entire congregation.

The youngster, named Savannah, told the church in Utah county, near Salt Lake City in the US, that she believed God created her this way and there is nothing wrong with her.

But church officials turned off her microphone and told her to sit down, reducing the girl to tears.

In her speech, posted on YouTube , she said: “My name is Savannah and I want to share my testimony with you.

"I believe I am a child of heavenly parents. I don’t know if they talk to us, but I feel in my heart that they made me and that they love me. I believe I was made the way I am, all parts of me, by my heavenly parents.

"They did not mess up when they gave me brown eyes, or when I was born bald. They did not mess up when they gave me freckles or when they made me to be gay. God loves me just this way because I believe that he loves all his creations.

"I do believe he made this way on purpose, not part of me is a mistake.

"I do not choose to be this way, and it is not a fad. I cannot make someone else gay and being around me won’t make anyone else this way. I believe that God wants us to treat each other with kindness, even if people are different, especially if they are different. Christ showed us this.”

She continues: “I believe that we should just love. I believe I am good. I try my best to be nice to each other and stick up for those that are hurting. I know I’m not a horrible sinner for being who I am. I believe God would tell me if I was wrong.

"I hope someday to go on dates, go to school dances, to hold hands and to go off to college. I hope to find a partner and have a great job. I hope to get married and have a family.

"I know these dreams and wishes are good and right. I know I can have all of these things as a lesbian and be happy. I believe that if God is there, he knows I am perfect, just the way I am and would never ask me to live my life alone or with someone I am not attracted to.”

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how no one, absolutely no one, supported Victor when he went off to be a coach. He was actually excited for the first time in an age, probably nervous, and no one cared; everyone told him he was making a huge mistake and made fun of him, and when he made his debut no one ever wanted to hear about his coaching or his choreography, they just asked him over and over about when he was going to, essentially, stop messing around and get back to the ice.

Fortunately it’s not *too* sad because we all know how it worked out and how happy he was to be with Yuri; but I still wish someone had acknowledged that he’d done so well.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m really looking forward to seeing Victor skate again, but I hope he finally gets some acknowledgement for the success he made of being a coach (through, I hope, Yuri’s continuing success). I’m hoping he can make a go of being a skater and a coach, to prove all the naysayers wrong, and also because it’s what he wants to do and what will make him happy.

1. Keith knows exactly why these planets are dead

2. He thinks it’s somehow his fault

I’m really getting the vibe Keith has done something really bad in the past, or even was somehow responsible for the creation of Galra empire (which would also explain his yet explained motivation for fighting them), I was thinking maybe he’s seen someone make a bad leadership decision that resulted in alot of suffering for people, but now I think it was more something Keith actually did.

I dunno, I’m sensing alot of guilt from him and a desire to set things right. Like there’s a reason this line specifically hurts him

I bet Keith has done something really bad and selfish in the past and hurt alot of people

phil lester sits criss-cross applesauce atop a world of his own creation and smiles. he stands in scuffed shoes and cares steady, holds consideration in gentle palms and offers it like the worst kept secret. jokes, delicate and airy, translucent flower petals and lavender blush and making the world a bit brighter. well meaning words settle whisper quiet into hearts, moulding them into something better, something softer. the rosy brightness of adoration blooms steady behind his eyes and glows for something good.

phil lester sits on his old bedroom floor and tells a camera about his day. ten years later he performs his last show on a worldwide tour, best friend by his side and tucks memories laced in silver and gold in his back pocket for safekeeping. he stumbles and a million hands reach out to balance and propel him forward. happy screams and photos and tweets and art and unadulterated love put down roots in his chest. vines creep across his ribcage and beat in a rhythm only he can hear, safecomfortablewarm. he locks it there, vivid and precious.

phil lester smiles, sunlit and breathtaking, the turn of his lips smeared on and dripping joy like a fingerpainting. he inhales colour and light and sound and exhales creativity, his fingers itch for something just out of his reach. mind floating away, barely there clouds dancing and wispy, and lying back among them and dreams about flying. determination is sharp in his veins and laces through his lungs like string tugging him along, do this make that write this down plan this out. add another rung and climb higher. he twists lovely things with clumsy fingers and adds another line to the autobiography titled how to make the stars appear dim next to this.

phil lester looks at the sky, twinkles wistfully and wonders if he could be up there. he doesn’t realise he’s been flying for years.
