and here i thought i was over them

anneofbluetardis replied to your post

That’s such a fascinating analysis. I would imagine a lot of people have something similar perhaps about a different aspect of themselves. I just love your thoughts okay?! And you are very generous to share them.

Ah thank you so much! I thought it was too!! I really do think that everyone has something particularly beautiful about them that they can’t see because they’re looking at it the wrong way. And I’m not talking about a “mind over matter” thing here. Like, looking in the mirror and willing yourself to be beautiful or anything. I think it’s more objective than that. 

It’s about looking and seeing what is actually there and recognizing the loveliness of it. It goes along with recognizing the flaws, which are all too easy to find anyway. The trick is recognizing both at the same time and seeing yourself as a whole person. There are things about myself I deeply dislike and am embarrassed about but there are strengths too.The point is that I’m not meant to see the one apart from the other. They all belong in the same face, on the same person. Just like I’m not really meant to judge my physical appearance apart from who I am. Because my body and soul are united. When people see me, they don’t just see disparate body parts. They see a whole person and it’s how I treat them and it’s who I am that someone responds to just as much as they respond to my physical features. That’s why I think presentation and fashion and carriage and body language are so interesting (and important). Because they bridge the gap between my static body and my personality and bind the whole thing (me!) together. So it’s not unimportant how I dress or act or move. It communicates so much about who I am and it’s a part of beauty I have more control over than my actual features. (Which I can’t change.) I think that’s so beautiful and awesome, don’t you? 

Even if I’m not as statically pretty as [insert pretty person here], it doesn’t really matter because I can be me. I can be a whole, unique person that people can love or hate or agree with or disagree with. The whole me-body and mind and heart and personality? No one is ever going to be able to replicate that, so I (you, everyone) might as well lean into that as our greatest strength because it kind of is.

I’ve wandered a bit off the track here, but to return to the point: everyone has physical flaws. But everyone has strengths too!!! Everyone has something beautiful about them, even speaking purely physically. And I don’t think it’s vain or silly to see that and rejoice in it. I think it’s good and it makes you happier which then opens you up and makes you more confident and at peace, which is as much a part of beauty (even psychologically) as having certain features etc.

 I always want to write an essay on beauty (I guess I just did? :D) because I think the world has it all wrong and I think beauty guides have it all wrong. I think we all fall into tearing ourselves apart and breaking up the pieces in a negative way instead of realizing the effect of our whole person, our personality, our virtues, the honest reflection of what is happening in our hearts. But I also think that it’s not a bad thing to take ourselves apart a little bit to examine ourselves more positively. To see the physical traits we once didn’t like in a better and different light. In my opinion a truer light. I believe everything God has made is beautiful, but He also didn’t make everything exactly the same. It’s really easy to think that if some aspect of ourselves isn’t like an imaginary standard then it (we) must not be pretty. But “Glory be to God for dappled things.” Hopkins is right and so is @wearetakingthehobbitstogallifrey who said “stars or flowers, which is prettier?”. (And you could be like, definitely stars. But that doesn’t negate the inherent loveliness of flowers. It just leaves room for personal opinion.)

 When you stop trying to make yourself like someone else you can see the unique beauty of who you are and what you look like. And that is amazing.

Also thank you for loving my thoughts!! That makes me so happy and also clearly emboldened me to write you an essay on beauty and self-acceptance!! <3

I can see people’s auras… and it’s a curse.

by A10A10A10

Yes, I can see people’s auras.

And I hate saying it so bluntly. It makes me sound like some hack psychic who fakes the ability as a means of exploitation and a paycheck. I’ve never made money from my ability. I’ve never taken advantage of it. And, until now, I’ve never spoken of it to anybody.

But I really do see them, and I’m starting to view it as more of a curse. I have a reason for typing this out and I assure you, there isn’t a happy ending.

The Dragon & The Wolf

Dragonpit scene - I love how Jon always wants to be on the front row when Daenerys arrives. 

When he said to everyone he already bend the knee. Danys face— she knew what that line meant. And was conflicted about how to react to this. They already know they are falling hard. At least she does and things like these doesnt make it easier. 

Ok I feel myself coming into a rant here. Its just so beautiful to me how Jon is so different for her than any other man she has ever met. I am rewatching GOT and she has never been around any man like she has been with Jon. 

He intrigues her so much and I don’t think she ever had or felt that for anyone. Her feelings for other men were always clear for her. 

She loved Drogo but it was set up and she fell for him during their relationship. But I feel like that relationship formed who she is now and she didnt really knew who she was back there. She loved -spending time with- Daario but she was always in control with him.

Jon is a completely different story for her. And Emilia plays that so well. He brings out this really special vurnable side of Daenerys we have rarely seen.

And she fell for it, and fell for it hard. 

She was so desperate to save Drogo and her decisions didn’t make any sense and I like how she was the same when she heard of Jon & co being in trouble. She didnt listen but just thought with her heart.

– k I am gonna stop here. I am not even close to Boatsex talk and I am already rambling —

“No one is less happy about this than I am” “I know” Love. Loved. LOVE this. How she just understands him. 

They are both people who ask for respect and honesty. She always asks people to follow her and wants their word and he is a man of his word so its only natural she understands it. Its like the scene he told her he was gonna go to the wall as well. She hates that he is this way but she also respects it. (and finds it extremely attractive).

Also, subtle handtouching. Like you touched last week and now you just wanna get more huh? 

THAT SCENE IN THE CORNER OF DRAGONPIT. They were like 2 schoolkids being all secretly. 

And again, I love how Jon kinda drops a cheesy line there and at any other man she’d roll her eyes but with him it just makes her heart drop.

And him trying to make a joke there. Like here they are, her dragon just died, his plan is going to hell and they share this beautiful bittersweet moment. 

Her whole speech about having to trust him sooner was so heartbreaking cause maybe then her dragon would still be alive. (I am gonna cry when she’ll see Viserion for the first time) 

Dragonstone scene - can they buy a mansion there?

THIS. THIS. Haha Jon, I am so onto you. First the cave paintings and now -Notherners like people who arrive together-trick. Yeah you just want her on that boat huh?

I felt so bad for Jorah tho’. She completely ignored his plan. And she knew she did that. At the end of the scene she leanded to the table a little like trying to hold her posture but full aware that many people, including Jorah, knows about her affection to the King of hte North. 

I find Jon much harder to read. But I think it is beautiful to see how he didnt trust her at first and really does see her for who she is. Like he told her. And how he is so amazed by her. He is so starstruck. I never really liked Jon with Yigritt she was definitely his first love but Dany is something he really pines for. Yigritt was also wrong and impossible but it happened anyway. Here he knows there is much more at stake. But he can’t deny his feelings any longer. And thats why he showed up at her door.

Now about Boatsex, I would have loved for it to go differently - well actually not different just - longer. More build up. But I understand why it went the way it went. Jon knew what he wanted and I love how they let the moment last for a bit with him standing at her door, looking in her eyes, waiting for her approval and she knew what he meant by looking in his eyes and let him in. She bend the knee. 

I was dying for a kiss here. And a little sad it didnt happen - there will be a lot of fanfic request about the missing part between the door and the bed – hint hint. 

But its like we are still gonna get our first kiss in season 8-kinda.

It was so beautifully brought yet stil hot. Jon’s ass was a nice distraction ASS-well. 

And him taking over control was so hot, not only for me but I think Daenerys agrees. Their bodies looked so beautiful together. Fire and Ice. They were so full of need and it was all lust and passionate and then my favorite part came and Jon broke the moment and we had time to realize that this isn’t just two character hooking up. No, they are in love. 

And he was so amazed by her and her beauty and how pure she looked. You can really feel he looks at Daenerys here, not with all the titles but just her and she realized this and she looks so vurnable and just so beautiful to him.

You can really see her kinda scared about what this is she’s feeling and it all just because so overwhelming for them. UGH THIS SCENE.

HOW HE STROKES HER HAIR. SO BEAUTIFUL. 

And how she hold his face. 

And then he just looks at her, when he looks at her, its like the first time I see clearly through his feelings and he just lets his guard down. He loves her. There’s no way to run from his feelings. No more excuses of -the great war is coming-. He never really let his feelings for her take over. Never fully thought with his heart and here he does and he just let it take over.

I just—-

Ps: Tyrion watching was odd but it just represented the scene Bran was talking about how their love ruined all kingdoms and how Tyrion cant feel but sad and confused about what he should do about this and if it is the right thing.

I am not sure how I will make it until 2019 to wait for more and I am so curious to see where all this will go. I am really curious how they will act after this episode and they will probably learn about Jon’s family name soon enough with only 2 episodes in and I do feel this will cause a problem for them. Jon will be all - wtf and Daenerys will be distrustfull about her claim to the throne. But I can suspect moments of Jon being all noble and telling her, by episode 5 probably, that he doesnt want the title but he does want her. Oh and she is definetely pregnant. BRING ON THE ANGST. 

Cant wait for Arya’s reaction to Dany btw. 

– Now I am off to fanfiction land – 

Thank you for an amazing 7th shipping season.

A/N: Hey guys! Welcome to day 2 of #MitchWeek! Yes, this smut is completely inspired by that bathtub scene from the trailer. I came up with this idea and immediately told Nia about it to which she said and I quote “if you don’t write this, I will.” And so we decided to turn it into a collab! I hope you guys love how intense this is as much as we do. We really felt no need to hold back.

“I don’t need a babysitter.” Mitch snarled at Stan Hurley as the pair walked down the long hallway.

“If anyone needs a babysitter, it’s you.” Stan chuckled at his least favourite trainee’s expense.

“Hey Tango, not gonna dance?” Jack said, leaning against a wall and next to Tango. 

“I’m going to join in later,” Tango said. “Oh yeah! Earlier I thought you were just coming here to steal our jam! But obviously you came to see-oh!” Tango stopped himself and covered the back of his head. “I almost forgot I should talk about it in public! Sorry Jack!”

Jack raised an eyebrow. “It’s alright, Tango.” 

“It must be awesome dating Bitty! Oh,” Tango covered his mouth, then whispered, “It must be awesome dating Bitty! He’s like the nicest guy ever!” 

Jack looked around, there were no phones recording anything and everyone was drunk already, no need to worry.

“Yeah, it’s been pretty great.”

“So, how did you get him to go out with you? Bitty’s awesome and super nice but he has really high standards.”

Jack almost choked on his drink, but Tango was oblivious and continued talking.

“Once this really handsome football player asked him out and he said no thank you. Oh maybe he doesn’t have really high standards and that was just because he was,” here his voice dropped to a whisper again, “going out with you.”

Jack couldn’t even bother to feel offended by Tango. “Were there other people who wanted to date him?”

Tango started listing. “The guy from the track team who always comes for pies, but maybe that’s just for pies? Uhh, there was someone in his French class who keeps asking me for his number. Our third line center, but I think he’s over his crush now. Sometimes the football team jogs by and comes in to ask for water, but one of them is here for Lardo and another one asks for sweet tea and pie. Bitty’s always down to give them pie! He’s so nice! What was I talking about again?” 

Jack shook his head. “Nothing.” 

“But how can I be talking about nothing? Oh so how did you get Bitty to date you?” 

“Are you interested?” Jack teased. 

“Hmm,” Tango looked deep in thought. 

“I’m just kidding,” Jack said.

“Oh good because it would be really awkward if I told you I was and insulting if I told you I wasn’t, I think? I don’t know. Do you think I’m interested? Bitty’s really nice and good looking.”

“Okay, time to go and get more food, Tango.” Jack pushed him towards the direction of the kitchen.  


“I have it on good authority that you have a high standard for men,” Jack said later in their nightly Skype chats. 

“It’s true, I have a standard that’s almost impossible,” Bitty smiled. 

“Oh? Tell me about it, mon cherie.” 

“Well, first of all they have to be French Canadian, then they have to be named Jack Zimmermann…”

hello, this was loosely based on a request that i will put below, that scene is in here but it’s definitely not the main focus of the one shot, hope you like it!!

anonymous: hiii i was wondering if you could do something where harry is eating you out but your work calls and you have to answer while he keeps going down on you???

Heels in one hand, purse and phone in the other, you skipped down the stairs to where Harry was waiting, hands in his pockets.


He turned at the sound of your bare feet padding on the hardwood and a grin stretched across his face when his eyes landed on you. You still weren’t used to that look; his eyes flaming with desire as they made their way across your body. You would never admit aloud what that look did to you, but you were sure Harry knew anyway.


His eyes slowly made their way back up to yours, but darted traitorously to your mouth, “I like your lipstick.” Was all he said as he admired the redness of your mouth as it stretched into it’s own grin.

The bass of the speakers boomed around the house as I poured some soda for Michelle and I. The continuous chatter of teenagers was the only sound I could hear from the music, almost running around the kitchen to collect snacks. I gathered a plate and was ready to share with Michelle, but she seemed to have a piece of toast in her hand, spreading butter on it.

“Where’d you find that?” I asked, eating a pretzel.

“Second cabinet from the left.” She answered, turning to me. “Want a bite?”

“No thanks.” I took a step back, chuckling. She shrugged and continued to eat the bread, taking a sip of her soda. We both continued to talk with one another until we heard Flash’s voice echo off the walls.

“When I say Penis, you say Parker!” He yelled into the microphone, attempting to start the mediocre chant that got really old after five minutes. But, in an unfortunate way, it let me know that Peter arrived. I headed to the door to look for him, catching him in a heartbeat.

When the confetti rained down in the other team’s colors, Jack felt a cold wave of numbness wash over him.

I don’t want to be alive anymore, he thought, chest tightening with shame and fear. I want to die.

A pause. A breath.

Oh.

Leave Right Now - Harry Styles Imagine

Being back in Holmes Chapel was nice, lovely really. Even after all these years, touring the world and living in LA, Harry felt at home here. He’s smiling while driving through the back streets. He sees his old school and the bakery, then he makes it to his parents house where his family is awaiting his arrival.

“I can’t believe you’re home,” Anne grins while welcoming her son. Harry’s face squishes up against the side of her head as she hugs him tightly.

“Missed ya too mum,” he mumbles before the hug ends. “It’s nice to be here, no where to run off to tomorrow,” Harry states as he looks at his step dad and sister Gemma waiting for an embrace too.

  • so michelle starts to get buddy buddy with ned and peter, ish.
  • she starts to actually kind of like ned, even if he sometimes puts his foot in his mouth sometimes. but they argue about the merits of comic books as a form of literature and he teaches her some words in tagalog and she learns how to call peter a son of a bitch so she’s pretty entertained.
  • but the weird things just keep piling up with peter.
  • he rushes off at random times, freezes whenever she asks him where he’s going, shows up to school with cuts and bruises looking like he’s been fighting in an underground boxing ring. she even saw him go into the chemistry lab the other day at lunch time even though they both took chemistry last year and he’s taking biology now.
  • he just does really weird things sometimes and michelle can’t help but notice.
  • michelle also can’t help but notice that spiderman is becoming more and more popular. people sell t-shrits, masks, shot glasses, tote bags. everything, basically. and maybe one day michelle might spend a little too much time looking at a t-shirt with a picture of spiderman in all his toned, muscly glory. but she just shakes her head and keeps moving.
  • she gets curious about him, though. where did he come from? who is he? why is he doing this? why did he sound oddly familiar in DC when he saved her friends?
  • and then one day she’s walking home from school after academic decathlon and she missed the bus which is totally her fault for staying later after practice to chat with peter and ned about the upcoming weekend and how their plans to construct a lego version of the starship enterprise were so utterly boring she could barely stand to listen to them. (and weren’t people supposed to choose star wars or star trek? was that not a thing? not that she cares about things peter likes. well, peter AND ned. anyway.)
  • she’s turning a corner when she sees someone out of the corner of her eyes. there is a man on the opposite side of the street walking several yards back from here. it could be nothing. but she’s also been taught to always be on high alert. so she grips her backpack to her body a bit tighter and walks a little faster down the street, cursing herself for not taking the more populated albeit slightly longer route home.
  • she continues down the street when she notices the man cross the street so that he’s on the same side of the road as she and at that point she just starts running. better that he thinks she’s odd if he isn’t following her than be caught if he is trying to catch her. she sprints down the street and turns another corner as she looks back to check if the man is following her and then bam. she’s on the ground, gripping the shoulder that practically crashed into a brick wall.
  • “oh my goodness, are you okay?” she sighs and looks at the owner of the panicked voice and she is left speechless. it’s…well, it’s spiderman.

I feel as though I barely post any Sansa things on the blog during got season (since season 5 anyway) and I thought it was probably time to state why. I love book!Sansa. She is one of my favourite characters. I love how complex she is and she has great character development.

Having said that, I don’t hate show!Sansa. I hate how she is written.

(yes, there is a difference, hence why I’ll still reblog sets of her in scenes I like)

I saw a meta recently about season 7 (about the conflict in the North) and it summed up my feelings about the way Sansa is written in some scenes in one perfect word: contrived.

A key example of this is the scenes in this season with her and Jon when Jon is holding council. Twice now he has held a public council and show!Sansa has spoken against his decisions. This doesn’t fit at all with her character. Sansa was a lady at three, courtesy is her armour, she knows about image politics (that was amply learned in her time in the south). She would not speak against the King in the North publicly, undermining him, she would do it privately.

I’ve seen people in the tags defending Jon, defending Sansa, arguing over who’s right. It’s bad writing, simple as that. These actions do not make sense, but the writers wanted conflict, so it has to be Sansa speaking out publicly even if that isn’t something she would do, because the conflict is what they need to move the story to where they want it.

They’ve done this so much with show!Sansa. Plot progression based on character actions which are built on a solid foundation of characterisation and logical character development tells a good story. Instead they insert Sansa into these scenes (marrying Ramsay (when she is already married!), hiding the info about the knights of the Vale, being the negative voice in Jon’s councils) when we could have had Sansa in the Vale to begin with, bringing the knights of the Vale to take back the North (perhaps even at the same time as Jon’s assault with the wildlings!), then a natural conflict between her supporters and his, because a choice between a bastard son and a legitimate daughter should come with some consideration (and even more when they know that a legitimate son also lives).

Anyway, rant over, those are my thoughts

The first package had only taken a few hours to show up.

They hadn’t been fighting, exactly, but nonetheless, it had been blisteringly apparent to you that Saizo was at his limit for dealing with your…perhaps at times overly earnest fiancé. That he had deigned to openly show his annoyance had been the first indicator. That he had disappeared completely as soon as Yukimura turned away to answer a teammate’s question  was the second.

That the delicate, luxuriously expensive contents of the delivered package fit perfectly was the third.

You turned in the mirror, watching silk cling and curve like a second skin. 

It ought to bother you, you supposed, that he knew, but, well, it was Saizo. Of course he knew. Just as you knew that it had been him, despite the absence of a note, or a return address, or any other indicator the sender had been anyone but a shadow. No, aside from silk and delicate tissue paper, perfumed with the signature floral scent of the Uesugi Exclusive collection (Even their department store brand was an indulgence for you—mostly because if it did the job right, it usually didn’t survive for a second round and who had that kind of disposable income—but you could spend a month’s salary and still be unable to even find, let alone afford the luxurious, couture silk of their exclusive line) the only other item had been a schedule.

Yukimura’s schedule.

With two less-than-subtle workout time slots highlighted.

You considered the full-length mirror again, indulging in the impulse to slide your hands down your waist and hips in admiration. A simple movement, turned to sin in silk by the artful arrangement of assets in a flawlessly fitted ensemble. 

On the one hand, helping your fiancé’s best friend manipulate him to get a break in which to take a nap or something seemed…well exactly like it sounded.

On the other hand…you turned again, unable to stop the sigh of satisfaction.

Right. Focus.

On the other hand…you couldn’t prove it had been Saizo that sent it. Not officially. And even if you called the Uesugi offices to ask, they respected their clientele too much to reveal those sorts of things.

And it wasn’t returnable, anyway. You’d sighed over glossy photoshoots enough to know that.  

And Yukimura had been spending all that time working so hard…you missed him. And…he probably missed you too, surely, he just got so focused before a big match.

And you looked killer.

You bit your lip in thought—and found that even that, a simple expression of consternation, became a bed-ward beckoning if you tilted your chin, and let your hair fall over simple, barely-there straps…

Screw it. (Literally, you supposed, grabbing one of the orange, oversized shirts kept in your apartment, belting it as a dress and sliding your feet in shoes you could get off quickly).

You paused one last time to glance in the mirror, admiring the now-invisible assist one last time with a smile as delightfully, deliciously wicked as you felt.

Yukimura was going to get his workout.

(And Saizo was going to get his break).

Interesting facts about Italy

These facts that astonish my foreign friends and my boyfriend so I thought I might share them with you.
Most of them just relate to my experience, being born in the area of Rome, and having grown up here. In other parts of Italy these facts could be totally different.

We have pizza with nutella

Yes. It is real and everyone loves it. It is a pizza base with nutella on top and occasionally icing sugar over it too. Some people think it is extremely strange but once you try it once you just fall in love with it.

We are crazy drivers sometimes

This is a video from Colosseum square, in Rome.
You may think this was just a day there was some sort of emergency or something… but that’s not it. People drive like this all the time in the center of Rome, and you have to be very good to deal with the traffic there.
People have 0 patience when it comes to driving and everyone always tries to go first.

We drink coffee standing

When Italian people drink a coffe (un caffé) they usually refer to an espresso, which one can drink in one single sip, so when they go to a café (bar in Italian) they usually drink it standing at the counter.
Some people even drink up to 5 espressos a day so for them it is a sort of very short break and not a moment in which they have the time to sit down to enjoy it for a long time.

Everyone gets their on pizza

If an Italian person asks if you want to go eat pizza with him or her and you expect to share a pizza, you’re going to be very surprised.
Whenever you order pizza you order your own pizza, and not finishing it in a whole meal is considered a waste, because it is so good that while you eat it you might even feel like having a second one and eat pizza until you die from it. So if you feel too full you’d probably get a comment like this from your Italian friend: “You are not going to finish your pizza?” If he or she is brave enough they could even eat a couple of the slices you can’t finish.

Italian people are very superstitious

Italian people all over the country have different precautions and superstitions to fight bad luck.
An offshoot of the Evil Eye curse is the use of the Corno, or Devils horn amulet. These twisted red coral, gold or silver amulets are  often worn as necklaces by men to ward off curses on their  "manliness" - very similar to a Mojo. Although most men who wear one will say it represents one of the  horns of the devil, the Corno (also known as Cornuto or Cornicello) predates Christianity by thousands of years.

Family is very important in Italy

Most Italian people really love and care about their family, and they always feel supported by it, even when they grow up.
It is not very strange to still live with your parents even when you are around 30, if you can’t support yourself economically to have your own place, for instance if you have no job. Unfortunately this is a very common situation for many Italian people around that age nowadays.
Even when you grow up and you can support yourself you still don’t stop hanging out with your family because in Italian culture family plays a big role in your life.
