okay guys but hear me out, can we talk about how jake proposed!!!!
AT THE END OF THE HALLOWEEN HEIST IN THE EVIDENCE ROOM (where they had their “real first kiss”), like perfect timing and place. and starting with the sex-tape jokes, BOTH OF THEM!!!! it’s so so so amazing 😭
and when jake started talking it was so emotional, funny at the same time and proving that he’s deeply in love with her (and how much he admires her). all he said was perfect and her responses to what he was saying 💛. I’M SO SO HAPPY THAT THE WRITERS DECIDED TO DO IT LIKE THAT (although without all the halloween heist and amy thinking it was a joke could be more romantic, don’t get me wrong I LOVED everything about this episode and the proposal but you know I don’t know if I’m explaining right but anyway I LOVED IT WITH ALL MY HEART)
THA ACTING !!! JAKE’S/ANDY’S FACE ALL THE TIME I MEAN YOU CAN LITERALLY SEE THE LOVE AND AMY’S/MELLISA’S TOO 💛
CHARLES’S REACTION OH MY GOD HE NEVER FAILS ME😂 and also he represented me like in a maximum level me too boy me too
AND THEY SHOWED US:
- WHEN HE DECIDED TO PROPOSE (OMG SUCH A CUTE MOMENT AND PLEASE HE REMEMBERED THE DAY 😭) MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOREVER APRIL 28TH.
- HOW THEY MET OMG I’VE WAITED SO LONG FOR THIS I LOVE IT. AND CHARLES’S PHRASE OMG !! HE KNEW !!
what are your headcanons for the first time jack and gabe have a moment alone after reconciling? I imagine a lot of tears after a few years of thinking the other dead/literally hunting each other
Depending on what style of hc I’m operating off of as far as ‘how much do they know about what the other was up to’ it tends to boil down to a lot of saying ‘I’m so sorry’ at the same time and wanting desperately to hold each other but flinching away because they’re so worried about overstepping boundaries until one finally makes the step and they both end up just holding each other for hours.
I had this thing I wanted to do with sappy old love songs where Gabe used to sing them to Jack (because it made him do this really great flustered smile) and after they reunite there’s this odd quiet period between them until Jack sits down and (quietly and badly) sings “Can’t Help Falling In Love” to Gabriel and Gabriel just loses all composure and half knocks him over sobbing and grabbing him and they just lay there together. And if that ain’t the sappiest shit I ever think up I dunno what will top it tbh.
(Same anon) yeah! And also I like to think it's kinda his way of showing how much he likes it. Example: one time when roadhog gave him a pretty flower to show affection he was like "thanks mate!" and immediately ate it.
That’s so wholesome omg. He doesn’t put it in a vase or anything he just fucking eats it. I love it. Give Junkrat a bouquet of flowers and he eats them over the course of the day like a snack to show how much he appreciates them.
so stubborn is incredible. A hot head. She knows what she wants and she'll get it. Yells a lot. Cares a lot about her family. Very concerned about her diet. She looks like a cinnamon roll but is a beast inside.
Aries male :
very intelligent, probably the most intelligent. Can either have a very scientific mind or a very literary mind. Loves to read. LOVES to make puns. Horrible ones. Has the biggest laugh.
MY BIGGEST LOVE. Literally the cutest thing. She is so smart and caring and it's true: she loves to eat. Cares so much about everyone, not only her close friends. She almost never get angry but when she does. Ouch.
a cutie. Always ready to cheer you up. DOES NOT. BELIEVE. IN. ASTROLOGY. Likes scientific shit. Loves old movies. Always laughs at your jokes. The best friend you can find. Loves Shrek.
so strong and independent. Her hair is always on point, so is her outfit. Either very tall or very short. They talk a lot and they love listening to you. Geminis are actually very lovable people. Best companion for a boring class or for lunch break.
very bold and confident about himself. Does his own thing. It's not that he is a dick, it's just that he has his own problems to take care of. Except Trump, Trumps is really a dick. Im sorry Geminis that he is in your sign. The cool guy of the class who has a different girl every week. A lil fuckboy but fun to have a chat with. Loves videogames and perfect pal to get drunk with.
not a crybaby. Actually HATES to cry in public. More often than you think, very extroverted. Very passionate about what she loves. High ambitions, starts many things and then get bored. So many puns oh god.
oh boy. "Nightmare dressed as a daydream". Makes you feel so special. Boyfriend material. Usually dark hair and dark eyes. Not very tall. Adorable. Special laugh. Will do great things in life. Very creative but kinda introvert(?) WILL RATHER DIE THAN CRY IN PUBLIC.
very close about her private things but she will open up if you demonstrate her she can trust you. Loves everyone. Not that confident about herself. Very confident about the world, tho. Wants to move someplace else and experience. People respect her.
Stonehead™. Literally smokes all the time to forget about the pain he feels. Hides emotions and then explodes, usually with rage. Either very close to you that he calls you every day, or he'll completely ignore you. Smart even tho it doesn't look like. The lonely wolf.
so stubborn and independent. She knows what she wants and she'll get it. Can get very clingy to the people she loves but sometimes neglect other people she loves even tho she doesn't notice. Get mad easily for the little things. The queen. Just listen to her, she knows the shit.
cute but doesn't have his own personality. Sometimes gets involved in ugly companies and does things he doesn't want to. Very sensitive but tries to hide it. Actually cares about you even tho he wants to appear a tough boy. Pretends he doesn't care about school, ends up with all A. Probably very good at soccer.
becomes part of your family if she isn't already. Amazing lipsticks. Always has great stories to tell. Lives in the clouds. Forgets about things easily but won't forget the important things. Has so many passions but get easily distracted when she is studying for an exam. Perfect person to binge watch Sherlock with.
my everything. Pretends he's a gryffindor but deep down is a slytherin. Stunning. Gets high grade without doing shit. The teacher favorite. The one you can do stupid shit with. Will do anything for you. Listens to you 24/7. Loves tv shows. Very smart. Will probably end up doing something very important. Perfect dad.
actually very sweet and caring, as much as cancer. Never shows off her emotions but you'll know when she cares about you. She's like a mama bear. She'll call you if she feels you are not happy. She'll call you constantly. Extroverted and kind. Best presents ever. Looks naive but very cautious.
ok so my ex fwb was a scorpio and i gotta say they get emotionally attached. Pretend they don't care AT ALL and then calls u at 2 in the morning telling u they love you. Just be careful cause they don't know what they want. Obsessed with electronic things and sex.
literally on fire. SHE. TALKS. SO. MUCH. I have so many different feelings about her. Either i love completely or I can't stand her. She pretends she knows everything. She's so slow at doing everything, except talking. Laughs a lot. Very sensitive deep down. So loud.
Pretty introverted. The fire is hidden. He's a freaking badass. If he cares about you, he will show you. Most likely to call you at midnight for your birthday. Very sweet. Goes big or goes home, especially in love. Both a cinnamon and a sinnamon roll. Like if he ain't in the same political party as you, just don't mention politics. That's when the fire shows.
so. she actually cares about you. but she has so much shit going on so she might forget to come at a place you invited her, she won't even apologize but when something happens to you, be sure she'll call. She's absolutely cute and she has been hurt so many times so it's hard for her to trust people completely.
THE FUCKING FANBOY. He loves to travel and to try new things. He is so shy but with his friends he's crazy. Laughs at his own jokes. Extremely sensitive and when he loves, he loves hard. So intelligent and interesting. Absolutely adorable.
the sweetest. she gets clingy to everyone but because she wants to have friends and do things and has a lot of problems but holds everything in and puts her friends first and she's hurt. The most precious human. She needs, she deserves to be loved the most. Learns very quickly and she's very honest.
the devil™. Actually he is funny, like so many jokes, but sometimes it's just too much. He hates when people offend him. Gets on the defensive. Kinda selfish and cares a lot about like 3 people (?). Like he will kill for them. So much drama, boy. Probably failed history and algebra 2 twice.
such a badass and a cutiepie at the same time i don't even know how this is possible. she has such a strong personality and loves her friends. Determined and will fight with her teeth for what she loves. You need to have a pisces in your life. She always says she will kill a person but then she just like run away.
like just like the pisces female. Cares so much about his family and shows his emotions easily, whether is anger or sadness or happiness. Determined but also insecure about himself, but will do great things.
me, internally: I love the dynamic of Klance and I love writing the ship. It was my first ship in the Voltron fandom and my first Voltron Klance fic Bonding Time is still my most popular. But it’s a constant frustration, because the more Klance content I reblog, the more anti blogs and art and posts are recommended to me. Because so many Klance fans are antis, and so Klance is associated with antis, which is so sad because I don’t want to be associated with such a toxic side of a fandom and I know many other Klance shippers don’t either, or don’t see the harm in anti arguments because they support Klance, and they’re defending Klance, so it must be okay, right? I hate that so many antis who ship Klance are also Lance stans, because I love Lance but I do not appreciate the iterations of Klance which make Keith out to be little more than a prop to support and lavish love upon Lance when he needs it - forget Keith’s feelings and character development, he’s from Texas and loves knives and making terrible decisions LOL. I hate the “there can only be one” mentality among so many Klance fans, who will go out of their way to bash other ships in order to make Klance the only “safe” and “non-problematic” one. I hate that the argument “because it’s not Klance” has literally been used when one shipper was asked why she didn’t ship or like Hance, I hate that people label Pidge/Lance as problematic even though Pidge and Lance have great potential as a couple and their age difference is the same as Keith and Lance’s, and most of all I hate that antis who ship Klance (…which is most if not all of them) claim other ships that “interfere” with Klance like Sheith or Shance or Shklance are pedophilia and unhealthy, when they are neither. I hate that antis who ship Klance will go so far as to attack other shippers with slews of hate, death threats, give them labels using words they do not even understand, and worst of all invalidate the experiences and trauma of actual CSA victims in their quest to make Klance the one true pairing. I hate that Klance fans have attacked the creators and voice actors of the show in the same way, I hate that @bext-k has been treated so horribly here on tumblr and then been told she couldn’t defend herself because her bully was a minor (a minor, but not a toddler, someone who is perfectly capable of not being an asshole and whose age does not make it okay for them to say the things they said). I cannot stand the Klance meta posts that analyze the heck out of every interaction between the two of them, and at the same time ignore much more meaningful interactions between characters like Shiro and Keith and deny that there could be anything more than friendship between them. It isn’t that deep, I’m sorry, it just isn’t, and it’s embarrassing to see how far of a reach Klance fans make sometimes in order to make their ship as canon as possible. And look, to a degree, I get it. I love Klance. But I do not love the way so many Klance shippers have broken apart this fandom and created spaces so toxic that CSA victims’ voices cannot even be heard without being shut down, mocked, and insulted. I do not love the way I now I have to check every unknown blog’s description before reblogging a post from them to make sure they don’t say “shaladins get out” or “stinky anti” there. I do not love the way that adult antis claim they are protecting minors and then turn around and reblog nsfw fanart of Keith and Lance, two characters who they apparently see as minors, even going so far as to tag it with things like “yaoi” or “this is so sinful” or something equally insulting. I do not love the way antis gaslight and guilt-trip, I do not love the insidious mob mentality that leads to people feeling afraid of not thinking the way other antis do. I do not love the all too prevalent fujoshi culture found among Klance shippers - have you ever noticed that the overwhelming majority of Klance shippers are teenage to twenty-something girls? Whereas all of the queer guys I know of in this fandom are multishippers and/or ship Sheith or Shance. Why don’t we acknowledge that? Why don’t we acknowledge that queer guys, whose relationships we are writing/drawing/analyzing and fangirling about, have an opinion here, and that their opinion maybe, just MAYBE, matters more than ours? In Hypable’s Battleships poll, this was literally proven - way more guys voted for Sheith than voted for Klance. But Sheith is the toxic relationship. Uh-huh. Right. Okay. Even though they’re both adults and have shown each other nothing but love, trust, and respect. This is what infuriates me about so many Klance shippers. The willful blindness to even acknowledge that other sides, other ships, may have merit. And of course this isn’t all of them, I ship Klance and I know many others who do and who don’t share this mentality that makes me so sad and upset. But there are a significant amount of Klance shippers who do. Why can’t there just be a dialogue? Why can’t antis be people who may not like Shaladin ships but understand that this is a fictional show, people are entitled to their opinions, blacklisting tags/blocking users/not looking at content you don’t like is a valid option, and words like pedophilia and “go kill yourself” should not be thrown around as lightly and frequently as they are? I wish we could. I really wish we could. And I also wish I could ship Klance as much as I want to without constantly being reminded of all the hate spread by people who call it their OTP.
me: yep haha ofc klance will always be close to my heart!
a ship that needs more love >> emmett & rosalie cullen
“I got luckier than I deserved. Emmett is everything I would have asked for if I’d known myself well enough to know what to ask for. He’s exactly the kind of person that someone like me needs. And, oddly enough, he needs me, too.”
There’s a lot of emphasis put on the idea of Yuuri and
Victor having a relationship devoid of labels in-series yet we as fans continue
to apply them to their relationship. And while this isn’t a bad thing, I would
just like to take a look at how, without labels, the bond between these two is so much more than we could ever explain by
boxing it in with labels.
Some of the first words we hear used for these two are
“coach” and “student”. While this is absolutely part of their bond, and an
important part at that, it already doesn’t encompass everything, even when they
first started applying it. There’s a history behind them, even if Victor was
less personally involved in it.
A history that you could use the words “idol” and “fan” to
describe. You could definitely say that this is where their relationship
started, but while these words also fit, they miss out on what that
relationship is like from Victor’s point of view. Their bond blooms into so
much more and describing it in this way would be a disservice to their
You could also say that they are “fellow skaters” and
“competitors”. And this is both true and important, but you miss out on the
personal aspect to their relationship and leave it at the level of their
professions. And this personal relationship really started growing as far back
as the banquet.
The first words you could possibly use to describe this
instant connection might be “inspiration” or “hope”. Those words imply a lot, a
depth of emotion and investment in each other that goes beyond what even words
could describe, but it removes them from each other at the same time. Because
these words could also apply to a distant relationship, one that isn’t as
intimate as theirs is.
When they started to get to know each other, this personal
intimacy bloomed into “friends”. This word is actually incredibly deep, because
friends don’t only have to be someone you get to know only on the surface. Friends
can be the people closest to you, and the bond can also go beyond just humans. It
can easily be your deepest-rooted connections. I also believe that friendship is
the key to a strong and long-lasting love relationship.
A love relationship that could be described by various
different names, such as “lovers”, “boyfriends”, “fiancés”, or even “husbands”,
if you look at the direction they’re headed. But if we look back over the list
we’ve already been through, we can clearly see that these words are lacking.
These words can be used to describe their romantic love, but it doesn’t touch
on any other aspect of their relationship including the deep bond they share as
two human beings.
So in the end, I feel the best words to describe what they
are to each other is simply “Yuuri and Victor”. The words Yuuri says to Victor
on the beach, that he wants Victor to be Victor
and not some other label, doesn’t only apply to Victor’s identity – it applies
to the relationship shared between the two of them. They’re not just
coach/student, idol/fan, fellow skaters, each other’s inspirations, friends, or
while they may be all of them at the same time, they’re also so much more.
I love the awkwardness of this hug; it makes the whole thing feel so much more real. Cosima isn’t in a position conducive to being hugged when she breaks down, and Delphine wraps her arms around her just the same. It doesn’t look comfortable, but someone who needs a hug isn’t necessarily going to pose themselves so that it’s easy or comfortable to give them one (which is something I’ve unfortunately gotten a lot of experience with lately, since we recently lost a pet). I appreciate that the director didn’t say, “All right, give it another
try, but let’s see if we can’t make it look pretty this time.”
Some ideas for productive breaks and smart multitasking
You shouldn’t feel pressured to work all the time. By all mean take breaks, and do whatever you want during your breaks. Those are just some activities that I enjoy doing when I’m not working on my uni work. I thought that I would share them with you because they have worked wonders for me. Just pick what you like and try it out!
Watch TV shows and movies in their original language. It still feels like a break: you can get all curled up in bed and get some snacks, but you’re still practicing a foreign language. It can be anything you want, even Youtube videos or reality shows. For English learners, ororo.tv is the best website ever.
Find an online class (mooc) about a subject that interests you. It can be anything, whether it’s school related or not. It will come so handy. For instance, if you’re passionate about photography, complete an online course about it. First of all, it should be a lot of fun. But also, one day, during an interview, someone is going to ask you what your personal interests are. “I like photography like thousands of people out there” is a bit less im-pressive than “I like photography. I even completed an online class from a foreign university this year during my free time. Indeed, I love to set myself challenges”. Coursera is my personal favourite.
Sit with your friends, grab coffee, and talk about subjects that you are passionate about. Ask your friends to tell you more about that subject that they love and know a lot about, ask them questions, examples and so on. Truth is, we tend to feel annoying when talking for hours about something that we love, but we’re not. I guarantee that you’re going to discover so much about your friends’ interests and that you’ll love it. And you’re actually learning a lot at the same time. My boyfriend is really interested in new technologies, and I always ask him to tell me the latest news about it. Well last time it allowed me to take part in a conversation at work about something that he told me about, and people were actually surprised that I knew so much about it.
Download podcasts and audio books for your trips. I know I can never be bothered to read a book in the subway and I always end up on my phone so I might as well listen to something interesting.
Do more things that don’t involve a screen : go out for a walk and discover a new neighbourhood, draw and improve your skills, cook and learn a new recipe, grab a newspaper and check on what’s happening in the world, remember that learning can be fun and that it’s not only going to school.

And this time I wasn’t shameless with group promo. I have a link to every song I mentioned so if you don’t know what/who I’m talking about then click the links. Hope it’s as fun as last time. And sorry if I was biased with some groups. Enjoy! :3
I really really want to start drawing too and I know the hard work will probably pay off in like what? 30 years? But uh I really don't have the aptitude for it and everything I have so far is really scribbly and bad and well uh do you have any more drawing advice for absolutely COMPLETE beginners like me?
Apart from a neverending practice and some patience, I think yes!
Try to appreciate the little progress that you have done, maybe those steps you’re making aren’t as drastic and huge as you’d want them to be, but they are STEPS! Try to get rid of that impatient mentality. I know how much you want to be able to draw the way you see in your head, or as good as other artists you like do, but it’s not how it works. Like, you have to draw. And at first you are going to be bad at it, you can’t get great immediately. If you don’t draw because you draw badly, you will never be able to become good at drawing. Out of those amazing artists you see on the internet or in galleries, very few were born gifted. The simple majority has to work for it.
It’s all about that suffering and unsatisfaction, and those little glimpses of pride you get when you notice you improved a bit. Remind yourself that you are a beginner. And how great you draw for a beginner! I mean, you draw! That’s alone is so huge.
Your hard work WILL pay off. Most likely sooner than in 30 years, it’s going to be paying you slowly but deliberately. Always remind yourself that you are going to be good eventually, and work for it. Start off with tutorials on the internet, they will make your progress easier and your understanding of what you’re doing to develop a bit quicker and steadier. You want to draw something? Look at drawing tutorials from it, find the one you understand the most and draw.
I know I literally always say work work practise practise, and I feel like you guys get so annoyed at me for it. BUT THAT’S HOW REAL LIFE WORKS. There’s no sorcery that will suddenly make one good.
You see amazing artists you love so much at this point where they are now, and you think they have it easy, and you want to be like them. But you don’t want to endure the same struggles, the same amount of time that has to pass, the same tears they had when they were just as unsatisfied as you. You just wanna be great. So….Patiently work for it. Draw things. Sometimes you’re going to draw things that make you proud, and you’ll get addicted to that feeling and you will want to achieve it again.
Artists are such competitive and greedy creatures I feel like they always want to be like that and to draw like this and to visualize like something else, but first of all they always compete with themselves and it’s what get them going farther and farther.
