and she understood

Amidst all of this, I am incredibly proud of Amethyst. 

As soon as she put the pieces together, she wasn’t angry or explosive - she was hurt and upset by Pearl’s actions, sure, but she understood. She knows what it feels like, to crave that…intimacy? That wholeness? That confidence that must come from fusing, with Garnet especially?

And she’s not tossing blame at Pearl - she’s begging Garnet on her behalf, asking her for mercy, for understanding. It’s very mature of her. 

Again, it’s no secret that Amethyst is my favourite of the bunch, but I genuinely believe she’s had the most development so far. She’s still got problems, yeah, but every now and then we get a small moment that goes to show how far she’s come and how much she’s trying.

You followed Dabins movements as he grabbed a handful of popcorn and shoved it into his mouth, you were now watching the 2nd movie and Dabin hadn’t said a word since he came. You sighed making Mina glance over at you, you both made eye contact and smiled. She moved away from her boyfriend’s embrace and made her way over to sit next to you on the small armchair. 

She squeezed herself in and held your hand in yours “What’s wrong?” You pouted at her which made her chuckle at your cuteness, she understood what was wrong. She knew you had gained feelings for Dabin and wanted to know if he felt the same. Mina gently pecked your cheek and gave you a sympathetic smile “Talk to him” You shook your head and glanced over at Dabin who had his eyes fixed on the tv - the only thing he was interested in.

criticaltheology  asked:

Hermione / remus, after the war if he lived but tonks didn't, bonding over survivors guilt

pairing: hermione granger x remus lupin [pre-relationship]

setting: post-war, canon-divergent


For Hermione, guilt had always been more of a concept than a feeling.  

She understood it, of course, understood the mechanics of it, how it could hold someone back as easily as it could propel someone forward—but it was so distant, so far removed from the reality of her life, the choices she’d made and the future she’d gambled; it just wasn’t meant for her.

Until.

Until the first time she sees Remus after the war—after the fog has cleared, after the dust has settled, after the bodies have been buried—and he’s holding Teddy, looking helpless and overwhelmed, and there are shadows under his eyes that she finds she recognizes, an edge of frantic bewilderment, an abrupt loss of purpose, the dawning realization that something has finally ended and there isn’t anything left to do but—


The social worker, who’d insisted they all call her Mary, had many papers for them to sign, and even more for them to read, including files from schools, doctors, and notes with allergies and favourite foods and toys and Lucy was quickly getting bored listening to them talk.

Anastasia had chosen the seat inbetween John and Jennifer, and while she was sitting much closer to John, she kept looking back to Jennifer, who smiled at her whenever she noticed. Lucy understood. Her mother was a nice- and friendly-looking person when she was making the effort to charm someone, and she was on full force today. If all Lucy had to go on was the past hour that Anastasia had been in their house, she would love to think of this woman as her new mom too.

But Jennifer wasn’t getting all of the attention. The girl kept looking at Lucy too, with an expression of curiosity and wonder. Your role is to be the best thing about getting adopted a voice inside her head, that sounded suspiciously like Alexander, reminded her.

“You’re all talking,” she said to the adults, “so why don’t I and Anastasia go upstairs and I’ll show her my room?”

Jennifer smiled at her daughter. “That’s an excellent idea, Lucy. We’ll be up to show her her own room in a little bit I think.”

The Suicide Orphan

by reddit user Cymoril_Melnibone

I’ve long been fascinated by internet horror stories and creepypastas.

I was young and impressionable when I stumbled across my first; Jvk1166z.esp, a story about a video game mod that went eerily wrong. That tumbled me down a dark and narrow rabbit hole into The Russian Sleep Experiment, then further lost me in the cryptid wonderland where all those other internet classics live.

Fine, I will admit the truth. I do not wish to be the father I had, nor do I wish to be the father Marcel has come to loathe. Perhaps I am better as a myth. And Hope is better off without me.

Cat Grant Appreciation Week | day 7: free day

the hero’s support

- And you’ve been a critic, you’ve been a cheerleader and some say that you are a friend.
- Well, I would like to think so.

  • Kara: My parents created the deadly Medusa virus that is killing you, were extremely flawed, and attacked your planet.
  • Mon El: It's ok, you had no control over that. :) <3
  • Mon El: My parents are selfish and cold liars, I just wanted a fresh start with no prejudice, you showed me what it is like to be loving and selfless, I hate the person I was, the way of life on Daxam was horrible and I will never go back to that planet and their awful customs
  • Kara: Unforgivable.

“I would like to think that the character stays somewhat consistent. Um, there are times when I feel like- when I feel like it’s not quite consistent, and I feel like what i’m saying is a little bit false to the character, and i’m trying to find a way to justify it.” [video]

Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years but we have been together for 16. Ok, that’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were 2, we were best friends. I mean I, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color. I knew her favorite food. Then we got to be 6 and Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that’s a girl, or even know a girl […] Then when I was 13, Mom, she put me up against my locker, she kissed me. I mean she, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said, all I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about. And when I’m with her I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love Mom. When I’m better because she’s here. And now she won’t be. So I’m finished.

honestly, i am so impressed by sana’s strength of mind in that moment. because after everything she’s been through, not only this season, it would’ve been perfectly understandable for her to send that message 

you have this girl, who came to nissen when she was 15 after being on the receiving end of actual verbal abuse for god knows how long at her former school, a child who should never have to face the hatred she faced, but who still started school with a strong head on her shoulder, with an open mind and heart. after all she’s been through, she still gave people a chance, let herself befriend the girl squad, and decided to join a russ bus. and not only join, but also actively participate, to the point where she ended up taking charge this season 

despite the events of season two, despite receiving hateful messages again, literally having sharmuta painted on her locker, sana didn’t become recluse, she didn’t give up, despite the microaggressions she suffered this season, despite pm girls being hostile toward her, she decided to remain part of the bus, decided that she still wanted to have a leading role.. up until may 12th, when everything came crashing down, and she realized just how hateful these pm girls were, to the point where she started having flashbacks of what she went through at her former school, and she realized that she had been set up, that these girls had lied to her face all along 

and so to see vilde post that picture of sara, calling her their one and only boss, to see all these girls speculating about the reasons why she left, saying that it was because of her parents and being so totally unaware of the pain they have put her through, of how horrible they have been to her, it rilled her up. she was rilled up because she carried so much accumulated hurt (and now anger) that she hasn’t been able to express yet. and so she started typing that message, fingers typing harshly, shaking, and i would’ve understood if she had sent it, to finally start to let it all out. after all of this? yeah, i would’ve absolutely understood

but she didn’t. her mind was strong enough to remind herself that sending that message would do no good for her, she knew that it would only let these girls see her as angry, she knew she didn’t have the required proof to back up her statement. and so she didn’t send the message, and instead reached out to isak who she knew did have that proof. no matter how badly she wanted to just send that message, she also knew, rationally, that this wasn’t the most efficient way to approach this matter. and for her to be able to think that way, and for her to not end up sending the message in that moment just goes to show just how incredibly strong sana is

Length: 5.0k

Summary: Jung Hoseok was once the sweetheart of the school, the dance captain whom every girl, including you, can’t help but fall head over heels for. But like the force of the ever-glowing sun, everything that rises must also set. A year of inactivity later and he’s now the school’s resident bad boy. You’re a firm believer of allowing the past be the past, and yet you can’t help but wonder where the risen sun has gone into hiding—because perhaps its shadows have out-shined its own radiance.

Their Feelings Are Connected

Sakura was the one who first told Sarada in Naruto Gaiden Chapter 1 that their hearts are connected to Sasuke’s. Thus, she was the one who introduced basically the main idea of Naruto Gaiden - that, no matter how far away they are from each other, her, Sarada and Sasuke’s hearts will always be connected to one another’s:

After hearing her mother’s words, Sarada asked how she could be certain about that fact:

Despite this, Sakura unfortunately couldn’t answer Sarada’s question back then due to what happened to their house right after Sarada had asked that.  

Still, in Naruto Gaiden Chapter 10, after the fight had eventually finished, Sarada remembered her mother’s words from a while back:

Deeply desiring to know if her father feels the same way and agrees with what her mother had previously stated, Sarada asked Sasuke if he believed that his feelings are truly connected to Sakura’s, to which he offered an affirmative answer:

But Sarada wanted to hear more. She wanted to completely understand why both Sasuke and Sakura were certain about that. So, she asked her father the exact same question she had asked Sakura in Naruto Gaiden Chapter 1:

The difference is that, unlike Sakura who back then was unable to answer Sarada’s question due to an external factor, this time Sasuke was able to offer Sarada the answer she had been waiting for so long:

Sasuke’s answer is incredibly important and Sarada immediately understood this. To quote myself from a previous post of mine, what Sasuke meant while saying this was that Sarada is the living proof of him and Sakura being connected, thus basically stating that she is the proof of him and Sakura loving each other. 

Therefore, he basically said that, if he and Sakura hadn’t loved each other, Sarada wouldn’t have existed. She wouldn’t have been born.

But she exists and her simple existence basically represents the love between her parents. They decided to transform their love into a beautiful, precious child and this fact is what is connecting their feelings.

And Sarada understood this right away, as right after hearing Sasuke’s words, she started crying happily and was exremely relieved:

^ This panel is of great importance, as this was the exact moment when Sarada understood it all, due to her father’s words. This was when she finally understood that Sakura truly was her real mother in every single sense of the word, including biologically. This was when she understood that her very existence shows the deep connection between her parents and the fact that they truly love each other. This was when she understood that the three of them would always be connected, no matter what. All of these facts immediately brought tears of joy to Sarada’s eyes.  

Therefore, Sakura was the one who introduced the idea that her and Sarada’s hearts are connected to Sasuke’s, Sarada was the one who kept this idea extremely dear to her throughout the entire story and deeply wanted to fully understand it and Sasuke was the one who completed this circle and, after agreeing with his wife’s words from Naruto Gaiden Chapter 1, offered the answer which explained everything Sarada wanted so much to know about the connection between her mother and father and the connection between herself and her parents. Their hearts will always be connected. After all, the love between the three of them is the real deal
