Reading your tags on the ask from the Morrigan romancer gave me life. I also wish we had more tortured soul lady LIs without the excess cute. I feel like Cass had excellent potential for this, except that her romance has nothing to do with her inner struggles? It’s adorable! But I wish women were allowed to be desirable without having to be cute. What I wouldn’t give for Lady Fenris.

I wish women were allowed to be desirable without having to be cute.” That resonates with me so strongly, you have no idea.

Part of me wonders if this is Bioware’s attempt at avoiding stereotypes… Which, at its core, is a good thing. But in doing so, I’ve seen the same queer female romance four times, when there are only five to choose from in the first place.

There’s plenty of struggle to be found in characters like Merrill and Leliana, but they always come with a side serving of innocence, as if to distract from their dark stories. And that can work. That can be great. It’s just a shame when it’s the only thing they do.

Happy endings, sad endings, betrayals, everlasting love… I really feel like it’s about striking a balance between it all in the grand scheme of things, while not being afraid of having specific female characters who are too much of one or the other.

As someone who prefers playing as females, I would give anything for a love interest like Morrigan, Vivienne, or a hardened Leliana right off the bat. A female romance who is strong in her convictions, who makes no apologies for that strength, with inner struggles, as you said, who has to deal with those struggles but doesn’t need to make up for them with sweetness or quirk.

When I think about the explicitly raw struggles in the romances of Anders, Solas, Fenris… I would love to see something like that in a female character. Women, no matter their sexuality, can be openly complex, sexual, emotional, cold or, fuck it, villainous. That’s just people, and it’s in those female characters that I personally find a lot of comfort.

Comfort: Hyung line with their s/o

Talk about wanting to give up, having a panic/anxiety attack, not feeling good enough.
I tried to not be too descriptive so that it wouldn’t be hard to read, i wanted Hyung line to be as comforting as possible while also being realistic.
I made this because I tend to feel this way a lot, and I know a lot of other people do too. So in case people find comfort in fake texts from their idols, I figured I would make this.

I'm here only since 1989 era and yes, it is a completely different way of handling stuff but?? I don't understand why even tay's fans are so rude to her?? She isn't my favourite singer, I just appreciate her but I must say that other fandoms aren't THAT messed up. Other people do absolutely nothing for the fans while she's doing too much imo. I just don't get where "lies the issue".

Well when you’re so giving to people they start demanding more from you. It’s sad but this fandom really got spoilt during the 1989 era and now feel like they have some sort of ~power(?) over Taylor to tell her what to do as if we know more about her work. I just can’t wait for tour to start so everyone will finally shut up

You’re allowed to be excited about the little things. You’re allowed to be goofy. You’re allowed to be dorky about your favorite tv show, to make blanket forts, to enjoy cheesy movies, even just to sleep with stuffed animals. You’re allowed to do any of the things that make life a little more bearable. It’s fine, ok?

being feminine does not make you a girl. being feminine does NOT make you a girl. being feminine does NOT make you a GIRL. being FEMININE does not make you a GIRL! BEING FEMININE DOES NOT MAKE YOU A GIRL. being feminine does not make you a girl. 

its cool to be fem/fem-aligned and be a boy, be nb, be a girl even. but femininity does not inherently equal GIRL. its nice to remember that

My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)

it’s probably already understood, but about 99% of the people here “freaking out” are just having fun. we joke around a lot and say we’re gonna fight him whenever he mentions the egos, but that’s literally the joke. when mark pulls shit like this we ENJOY it, we think it’s fun because people come together and make jokes and theories and just bond over something.

nobody is actually mad or upset, nobody is actually freaking out over this. our little “freak outs” are just how we express our excitement online. don’t take it too seriously and tell people to get over it, we’re literally just enjoying these moments with our online friends.

“Whenever I am feeling low, I look around me, and I know, there’s a place that will stay within me, w h e r e v e r I may choose to go.” Happy national day to my fellow sg-eans!!! What’s your favourite ndp song? 

That song will always be a classic for me. Hope everyone had a great day!

I saw someone headcanoning that Sero and Bakugou had this friends with benefits thing in the past in which they would make out sometimes just for fun. I really liked that idea. How would you think Kaminari and Kirishima would react to that? Do you think they'd get jealous or?

  • <p> <b>What other people think of Yuri!!! on Ice:</b> It's too gay. Why do you even like that?<p/><b>Me:</b> The story tells us that: (1) being defeated is not the end, (2) it is okay to feel pain, or feel lost, and cry, and (3) it is never too late to strive for the things you want to achieve.<p/><b>Also me:</b> It also teaches us that love is such a wonderful thing, and that its beauty manifests in different forms. Our perspective about love should not be limited to what the world says about it. Love is what we feel, and not what other people say about it.<p/></p>

advice for the signs

aries: don’t get too caught up in your own life and forget the people who really care about you. it’s easy for you to get lost in your own little world, don’t let the people closest to you feel forgotten.

taurus: get out of your shell. even if it’s just once in a while, you’ll feel better afterwards knowing that you did it. it’s easy to get used to the four walls in your bedroom.

gemini: take care of you first. the others can wait. you always exert all of your energy to other people, make sure you do that for yourself, too.

cancer: sit back and make sure you’re not letting your emotions get the best of you. reach out to friends and family and talk things through before letting the emotions making the decisions for you.

leo: you might be “too much” for people, but you never will be too much for the people who are meant to be around. get rid of the people who make you feel bad about yourself.

virgo: the best thing you can be, is yourself. everything else will follow. don’t give into the pressures, just be you.

libra: save your heart for the people who honestly care. don’t let people come into your life if they don’t have your absolute best interest in mind. it will just hurt you in the end to care about people who don’t care about you.

scorpio: vent and scream whenever you need to. all those things in your past, they are your stories now. don’t hold them in. don’t be around people who make you feel like you need to hold them in.

sagittarius: love freely. you think it makes you look weak, how much you love people. but it is the biggest, most admirable strength i’ve ever seen.

capricorn: slow down and take things as they come. you need to live for yourself, go on adventures, and see the world. don’t forget there’s a whole world out there to be seen. it needs you to explore it.

aquarius: you will meet the right people who understand you without words. it may take time, and it may be hard to believe, but you will. and you won’t feel the need to sensor your every move. just keep living, you’ll find them.

pisces: your heart is too beautiful, pure, and full to feel like someone isn’t loving you all the way. and if you feel like that, i hope you find the courage to leave.
