and so i continue to be an awful person

I genuinely feel so bad for Julian. 

He literally doesn’t have any friends in Central City from what has been shown to us. He was always at the station before Caitlin asked him to join Team Flash. Once he joined the team, he was always either at the station or at S.T.A.R. Labs. Even in tonight’s episode (3x15), Julian goes straight from the airport to S.T.A.R. Labs. I don’t know about you but after going on any flight (especially one from Europe to America??) there’s nothing more I want to do than to go home. 

 Along with that, back in episode 3x05 (I’m pretty sure this happened in ‘Monster’ at least, feel free to correct me if I’m wrong), he claimed that he had a “girlfriend” but whatever happened to her? I feel like he said that to not only get Barry off his back, but to also make it so that his excuse made him seem less hermit-like. Maybe if he made up this fake person, then maybe he wouldn’t seem so lonely.

I think that the reason Julian latched onto Caitlin so much at this point in the season was because she was the only one to really reach out to him in an effort to become friends with him. Regardless of what Cisco and Caitlin said in the season premiere, that Julian was a “great guy”, nobody had really bothered to reach out to befriend Julian. So when Caitlin asked him to join Team Flash, not only was it an opportunity to have access to the greatest scientific technology, to make a difference in Central City, or to better understand his profession as a meta-human expert, but it was also an opportunity to be part of something. An opportunity to be part of a team.

So, when it was revealed in tonight’s episode that one of his only friends, if not his best friend, had only invited him onto the team for his profession, not for who he truly was, it must’ve stung deep. To think that someone you considered to be a good friend lie to you to get what they want is just awful.

On another tangent, Barry continued to use Julian as a “human Ouija”. Julian has stated time and time again how awful it felt to be vulnerable to Savitar’s control and how he was not comfortable with it, but Barry continued to pressure him into it multiple times during the episode. 

I think that Julian was really starting to consider Team Flash to be good friends of his, and in just one episode, I think that they really tore that away from him. And for that, I feel pretty bad for the guy.

If anyone is still wondering why I am so picky about doberman breeders:

A customer came through my cash lane between classes yesterday, returning some dog food because his dog died a few days prior. I did my typical “I’m sorry for your loss” and finished the return, and he asked me where cat litter was because he’d been so worried about his dog that he’d run out of cat necessities. So of course I got Creed out of his tuck so I could walk him there and that’s when he noticed I had a dog with me for the first time…

and fell to his knees sobbing because the dog he just lost was his 5yo doberman, to lymphoma, on Wednesday. Sudden onset, they found it and within the month she was gone. Seeing Creed reminded him so much of his girl that he couldn’t bear the pain and sat on the floor for several minutes crying about his dog. I let Creed break the no-touchie-on-duty rule and he sat with this man, licking his face, leaning against him as he was hugged, until the guy was able to compose himself a little better.

His dog was from a well known shitty breeder that markets her imported dogs as Da Best Evaaa working and breeding dogs, 100% full Euro and superior championship bloodlines all the way from Serbia, super healthy compared to those icky American dogs. His dog died young and it burned him so much that he’s gone to the malinois because at least most of those make it to 10.

You want to know why I’m so choosey about breeder decisions in this breed? Because that’s not uncommon in this breed. Because this guy was completely abandoned by his “breeder” the second he knew that his dog had cancer and had to go through this hard time by himself. Because this guy had such a strong bond with his dog that he could not help but have a complete meltdown on the floor of my store because he saw another doberman.

Because the health in this breed is god awful and because the breeder he’d chosen is similarly god awful, I led a 40+yo 200+lb man through my store as he continued to weep and sniffle and hug my dog because he lost his so tragically.

You can call me elitist when you’re the person comforting the folks who have lost their dogs to such tragedies.

Keeping it Professional | Chapter 1

Lena sits up and looks down at the girl next to her.

“Kara?”

The blonde’s eyes are full of something…Something that only urges Lena closer to her.

“Do it.”

“Kara.”

“Do it.”

So she does.

Kara’s lips are soft against Lena’s, their kisses are hesitant at first but grow by the second. Kara makes the next move as she softly pulls on one of Lena’s lapels to bring her closer situating the brunette on her lap. It’s Kara that slightly grazes her tongue along the CEO’s lips which part slightly giving the other girl access eliciting a soft whimper from her in return. It’s Kara’s hand that slowly toys with the hem of Lena’s blouse craving more contact, more of anything. But it’s Lena who pulls away and stands with bruised lips and darkened eyes. And it’s Lena who extends her hand to Kara and whispers, “Your place or mine?”

Fairy Tail‘s Ending

So yeah. I think a lot of it was that this is the final arc of FT but apparently accord to ANN this is the last arc. Now if your hearing this news your probably going to react in one of 2 ways: oh no I’m so sad or OH THANK GOD!

Now just cause this is the last arc doesn’t mean the series will be over in a week, but still it is on it’s last leg. Now I would say that either it’ll end in summer or possibly a little later.

Now, those who would be sadden by this news, I understand. This series while having some bad moments isn’t a trainwreck as a lot of made it out to be. For many this series holds a special place in their hearts and watch it go feels like not only losing a popular series but also losing a friend they’ve had for a very long time.

But there are those who couldn’t be happier hearing this. This series has pulled so much crap in the last 2 years that not only has it become hard to read but also has ruined a lot of love that people once had for it. I understand that too.

Now for my personal feelings, I’m conflicted. I want this series to end as it has been evident Hiro Mashima has lost a lot of interest in this series and knowing his skill with passion behind a work he can make it great. But, this arc has been awful. It has disappointed so many and rather than ending it like this I would’ve prefered Mashima to come back with that spark and restore the glory the series once had and not just let it burn out and die. I would’ve loved for it to have continued so that we could fix many issues, but the chance of it running longer also runs the chance of running it in the ground further. Which also asks maybe we should leave good enough alone.

With this last arc being so bad it really is a shame. For the final moments of a series are the memories you leave your fans with. With such a bad arc you leave nothing but a bitter taste in people’s mouths and leave the lasting memory of “that series with the really disappointing ending”. With the recent chapters I can only hope for one thing that the ending of this arc is truly great, a bad arc with a good ending at least lessens the blow of the shit people had to put up with in the last 2 years. If this Zeref and Acnologia stuff is done on point, I think the series could salvage a decent ending.

😡

I need to get something off my chest.

I am very much one of those people who let things fester secretly inside until I get sick or I explode….

The only reason I am sharing this here is because I know/hope there are people on here who can make me feel better about it.


I have someone in my life, who likes to let me know how much they disapprove of my running.

This person just happens to be a doctor and thinks “endurance” training is horrible for me since I have an auto immune disease.

This person comments on posts( not tumblr posts) and has spoken to me in person about how it is destructive and destroying my body.

THE ANGER I feel every time this happens is out of control. I received one such comment in the middle of my run today. I read it and let it fuel me which is awful.

even if i am “obsessed” with running WHO THE FUCK CARES!??


Im not an alcoholic, a drug addict or and abuser. how is this person even trying to compare RUNNINGGGGGG to these things???

I KNOW I am not crazy but what the actual fuck.

I have said, “i’m going to do what i’m going to do, so drop it” before and nope. they continue to drop their medical terminology on me as i “destroy” my body..


MIND YOU, when i’m running my disease is the most under control as opposed to when I’M NOT ( i have ulcerative colitis for those who don’t know)

ok well there it is.

i don’t even want to write anymore because it gets me SO fired up.

I almost deleted this because it was semi therapeutic just writing it but im going to just go ahead and post.

ok bye.

Please be gentle in your responses i am feeling rather sensitive.

Being abused doesn’t make you less of a feminist.

I can’t believe I have to write this. 

If you’ve been physically, mentally, or emotionally abused you are no less of a feminist than the person who hasn’t experienced those things. Being a feminist doesn’t mean that you have to be continuously strong or domineering to be considered a “good feminist”.

 I was abused in a relationship and i’m still a feminist. If anything, having experienced abuse, sought help, and finally leaving the situation made me feel stronger and more connected to my feminism. I knew how I never wanted to be treated again and I went through something so awful that it made me run straight to the front lines to help other women in the same situation I just got out of. It made me talk more about abuse, which made me feel stronger. I realized my worth and knew I would never want to be that woman crawling on her knees in the apartment, sobbing, being tormented by anyone ever again. I had to find not only my femininity again, but I felt like I had to find my feminism as well. 

When I sat in the bathroom crying with snot running down my nose I couldn’t believe that this happened to me. I was strong, vocal, and dominate. No man could ever put his hands and words on me without repercussions, I’m not a weak woman. But it happened, and I was stupid to think only certain kinds of women experience abuse. Women every day experience abuse, weak and strong. So there I was, broken down in a million pieces too embarrassed to admit that this happened. Here I was telling everyone online how I’d never take abuse and how I knew my worth and how I would never be with somebody that was violent, but I was. Everything I advocated against just happened and I did nothing but take it, so in turn, who was I to tell anyone how to be a feminist.

I took a long walk after that moment, took several weeks to myself. I asked for help, talked to family and friends, and read many many many articles and threads written by other women about their experiences. With each story I felt a little bit stronger, a little bit more like me. I slowly realized that abuse didn’t take away my feminism but only made me more aware of how broad it can be. I got louder, I got my strength back and I became less embarrassed. I asked my local government why instruments weren’t in place for abuse victims. I spoke more often for those still recovering. I’m writing this blog. 

You don’t have to be the strongest woman or any gender you define as in order to be the right kind of feminist. We come in many shapes, colors, backgrounds, experiences, strengths, weaknesses, and definitions. Just because you’re a victim does not make you less aware or less deserving of feminism.

Sharon Needles vs Jeffree Star master post

An explanation of what has been going on between these two and how the drama started. 

 It all started November 13 last year when Sharon uploaded a video on her instagram that was meant as shade towards Jeffree. In that video Sharon was seen removing her lipstick which was supposedly a Jeffree Star liquid lipstick. The said lipstick stained Sharons lips and in that video she called Jeffree a ‘pink haired f****t’. It was most likely meant as just shade considering how Sharon’s humor is. The video does no longer exist cuz Sharon deleted it from her instagram, but here’s the reddit link where it was posted. Read here to see what exactly was said in the video 

 https://www.reddit.com/r/rupaulsdragrace/comments/5cocht/jeffree_star_is_shook/

Moving on Jeffree responds with this 

I unfortunately no longer have the exact tweets that were exchanged during the time this happened but it basically went on like this.

Sharon had received a fake Jeffree Star liquid lipstick from a fan, the lipstick stained/hurt her lips. After tweeting with each other back and forth Sharon apologized and they basically ended the feud with each other. At the time Jeffree even said ‘Lets do a look together sometime’ or something along the lines. So it was all resolved. Sharon even denied having a feud with Jeffree and said she will be signing autographs with his black liquid lipstick.

You can find the video here

https://www.reddit.com/r/rupaulsdragrace/comments/5iy17h/sharon_denies_feud_with_jeffree_star_announces/

So it’s all good right

SIKE 

Jeffree continued to be a petty person and respond to a meme that Sharon didn’t make or repost or even respond to: 

So basically he came for Sharon even though this time Sharon didn’t really do anything to ignite such a reaction. After  one or two days on her personal facebook Sharon changes her boy profile picture to this:

It should be noted that this highlighter is also a fake one. 

A day later Sharon posts this on her instagram as a clapback towards Jeffree

Of course this was meant to say that networth ain’t shit when you’re an awful person (I mean Trumps networth is bigger than both of theirs, see my point?), but some confused people for some reason thought this was a transphobic remark towards Caitlyn even though that wasn’t the case at all.

Then Sharon posts another video on her instagram in which she’s shown throwing her JS liquid lipsticks at her cats litter box. You can see the video here 

https://www.instagram.com/p/BREPj1jg8eC/

The last thing Sharon has said on the issue 

Jeffree also commented something else saying how he’s ‘just a small man in this big world’ and how Sharon was the one who was nasty to him in the past. Funny how he refers to himself as he small man even though he brought up his networth by himself. 

When Sharon does the clapback video and more things happen I will be making a part two for this so stay tuned!

Felix had always hated parties. 

There was something about the obnoxious music and constant PDA that bugged him. 

He was there for the drinks, in all honesty. His friends had dragged him here, much to his frustration. Something about him spending too much time inside, and “he needed to get out more”.

Whatever. 

His sour mood had only turned more so, though, because the only thing in the world he hated more than parties had turned up. At the party. 

Seán McLoughlin.

Felix made a face as he thought about him. He hated Seán more than anything in this world. 

That boy was an annoying, loud, childish prick that everyone seemed to love. Everyone, that is except Felix.

He stared into his glass, swirling the alcohol around as he let out a sigh. A wave of pain washed over his head and he closed his eyes to alleviate it. 

And yet, as he opened them again, he wished he hadn’t. Because who else could ruin his night further by just standing in front of him?

“Seán.” Felix spat the boy’s name, making sure he looked about as disgusted as he could. He swept a hand through his messy bleached hair, glaring up at Seán. 

“Felix.” Seán returned, cocking his head. “You look like you’re having the time of your life tonight.” Felix rolled his eyes and sipped his drink. 

“Can I help you?” he set the glass on the table beside him and stood up off the couch, forcing Seán to take a step back. He was a few inches shorter than Felix, and it made him feel like he had the upper hand. 

“Well no, but I don’t know anyone here, so I figured I’d come bother you.” he raised an eyebrow at his counterpart. He knew how much he got under Felix’s skin. 

“Ah yes, feel free, this party is already shitty, why don’t you just make it more painful?” Felix faked a smile, the sarcasm dripping off his voice. Seán shrugged. 

“If you say so. Wanna go somewhere quieter?” 

“I don’t want to go anywhere with you.” Felix retorted. 

“Oh fuck off and lighten up, I’d leave if I could.” 

“Can’t you find some other guy to chat up? You seem to be good at running that mouth of yours.” 

“I’ll take that as a compliment, and no, I don’t want to put the effort into finding someone else. All the guys here are either straight or taken.” Seán looked over his shoulder at the sea of people behind them, disgust set on his face.

Felix said nothing as Seán turned back to look at him. He glanced at his phone. It was only 10pm, meaning there was still a few hours left. Silently, he weighed his options. 

He could deny Seán’s offer, like he wanted to, just for his satisfaction. God he hated this kid. 

Or he could go with him and at least try to pass the time with some small talk. 

“Fine.” he muttered, shoving his phone in his pocket. “I’ll come with you.”

“Oh thank you, great and wonderful Felix!” Seán clutched his chest dramatically. 

“Fuck off.” Felix flipped him off before he turned around. Seán weaved his way through the drunken people, leading Felix into a side room, which was thankfully not occupied by anyone. 

The door shut, and as Felix walked further in, Seán locked it from the inside. 

“I don’t want a bunch of horny fuckos coming in here.” he said, as Felix shot him a look. 

There was a painful silence between the two, Seán sitting himself down on the bed. Felix leaned up against the wall, not wanting to give the other the satisfaction of sitting with him. 

They made eye contact, Felix’s hateful glare nearly burning holes in Seán’s head. “So,” he started, “remind me why you hate me?” 

“For starters, you can’t shut your whore mouth for more than two seconds.” Felix said flatly, crossing his arms as Jack winced. 

“Alright, damn, I won’t ask why else.” he slipped his sweatshirt off, letting it fall to the floor beside him. He couldn’t tell if he was sweating because he was nervous or hot. 

“You’re annoyingly loud.” Felix continued. “That green hair of yours is obnoxious.” 

“Says the one who bleached his.”

“Everyone adores you, it’s disgusting.” 

“Oh boo-hoo.” Seán rolled his eyes. He smirked as he caught Felix’s gaze again. “You might not like me, but you definitely want me.” his voice was smug. 

“Excuse me?” Felix looked taken aback by the sudden and rather suggestive comment.

“You heard me.” Seán said, now standing. “I can tell these kinds of things. You think I’m hot. You just hate my personality.” 

“I hate all of you.” Felix assured him, straightening up so he was taller than Seán again.

“Aw don’t be like that.” Seán leaned close to him, every detail of his face being exposed to Felix. “I catch you staring at me all the time. You probably don’t even hate me that much. You just tell yourself you do.” 

“Back off.” Felix gave him a shove in the chest, “You’ve got to be insanely drunk to have the nerve to say that.” 

“Haven’t had a single drink tonight.” Seán smiled. “C’mon, have a little fun with me. This party won’t be out for ages.” 

Felix’s head was spinning. He couldn’t tell if it was because of his headache or the sudden change in Seán’s voice. 

He closed his eyes and hoped he was drunk enough to forget anything he did in the next few hours. 

“I hate you.” he growled, giving Seán a final shove, sending him back onto the bed. 

“Don’t worry,” Seán gasped as his neck was suddenly attacked, “the feeling’s mutual.”

Arrow 5x15 “Fighting Fire With Fire”: We All Got Burned

Originally posted by gameraboy

I’m not quite sure how the Arrow writers are managing this but every single week this show has gotten worse. The issues plaguing the show have only dug in deeper, taking root and I’m not quite sure how Arrow at this point can rid itself of the legacy this season is going to leave in regards to the industry and the fans.

I fully understand that everything is a journey and when you are writing a twenty-three episode series, they tend to draw out plot points that a 13 episode series would conclude rather quickly or smartly avoid. But there is the difference between taking the long way to your destination and setting the car on fire while you’re still driving it.

The Arrow writers have completely forgotten this. Their oft-espoused “back to basics” really meant they were going to erase years of character development. I do not recognize these characters anymore. I do not know Oliver Queen anymore. This isn’t the character that I’ve loved; that I’ve defended like a momma lion; and that I’ve championed a hero even when he wasn’t working with his better angels.

This character is an asshole. I was rooting for impeachment. I’m this close from starting up a Prometheus fanclub. I was once a huge The Vampire Diaries fan. And then Elena Gilbert became a vampire and the show was ruined for me because the show ruined its protagonist. Everything about her character was erased entirely just to perpetuate a love triangle that they had supposedly resolved at the end of the previous season. In doing so, they turned Elena Gilbert entirely unlikeable for me. I just never got over her 24-hr brother swapping or her irritating personality change that was never really explained properly. I never thought I’d see another show destroy its own protagonist as swiftly as TVD managed to do. 

Thus it was funny that I would go on to watch Arrow and root for Oliver Queen, who had his own history of sister swapping. But the difference was that kind of behavior was clearly in Oliver’s past; he was beyond that. He’d grown and learned that he’d been an asshole because karma had kicked his ass something fierce. I’m not saying he didn’t screw up in the present because Lord knows he did. The revival of Oliver and Sara’s relationship was in the worst taste. But it was a little more believable than this push for Oliver and Susan’s relationship in S5.

I thought that douchebag behavior was behind Oliver. Especially once he and Felicity had gotten together. He’d found his light and the one to help him harness it. Oliver had attained a kind of emotional maturity and then the BMD happened. It’s really all been downhill for Oliver since 4x08. It only got worse when S5 started. And yet somehow in 5B they have managed to make all of it worse than 4B and 5A.

Olicity

I am at my breaking point with Oliver. This isn’t a good feeling as someone who loved his character; as someone who loved this show and was rooting for him to come out the end a better, fully-developed person and hero; and as someone who shipped him with my favorite female character. Because here is the hard truth that makes my stomach hurt to even think: Felicity deserves better than this version of Oliver. I think I’ll stick with what I named him last week: Ollie 2.0. And without some sort of magical reversal, I can’t quite see how any kind of reunion between Olicity could be a good thing, let alone believable. I actually have tears in my eyes writing that out. Like a physical pain has lanced my chest. But I feel that defeated after this episode. I am grateful that we have a couple of weeks off before this reel disaster returns.

I may continue this if there’s interest/inspiration to do so! Also posted on Ao3 if you want to follow the story there.

Prompt: Person A has the power to see/sense injuries (anything from bruises to broken bones to hypothermia). They meet Person B when they see suspicious or worrying injuries on them as they walk past each other.

“Aw, don’t be so serious!”

The vibrant lights flickered and danced across shifting bodies as EDM remixes blasted from the speakers and bounced off the walls of the club. Bathed in blindingly bright lights, Yang snickered as she pat her boss on the cheek and grinned. “You know I would never hit on my customers.”

“You sure, blondie?” A deep gravelly voice intoned, followed by a long-suffering sigh as Junior turned to look at Yang. 

“I wouldn’t! But once my shift ends…” Her grin widened as she leaned back on the bar and shot Junior a wink.  “Then she isn’t really my customer anymore, is she?”

Pointed talks

A belated birthday gift for one of the best people out there, @mab-speaks. Happy birthday, my dear. I hope all is going well.

Betaed by the kind and sweet @percyinpanties.

Read it on AO3.


“Thing is, as I was choking just now, I kept thinking: this is payback for Akhlys. The Fates are letting me die the same way I tried to kill that goddess. And… honestly, a part of me felt I deserved it. That’s why I didn’t try to control the giant’s poison and move it away from me. That probably sounds crazy.”

Jason thought back to Ithaca, when he was despairing over the visit from his mom’s spirit. “No. I think I get it.”

Percy studied his face.

Jason stayed silent for a moment, weighing his words. Just when Percy looked like he was about to change the topic, he spoke.

“I mean that when I felt the Imperial Gold sword go through me and burn my skin, I felt like that was punishment, too.”

His hand went down to his belly where he could almost feel the burn of the scar seething through his clothes, and a wry smile creeped on his face.

“Like some kind of joke - It was a roman, an ultimately traitorous spirit at that, who did it, and the guys from Camp Jupiter probably are saying now I backstabbed them by siding with you, not to mention what happened with mom. So really, I can relate.”

Percy said nothing. When it looked like Jason had nothing more to add, Percy opened his mouth to say something, but Jason continued.

“Look, I get it. Your pain is valid, dude. But you don’t deserve to die - not like this, not ever.
You make mistakes, we all do. But beating yourself up over self-defense that happened in the heat of the moment - that’s understandable.”

Percy chuckled without humour.

“Look, I appreciate the thought, Jason, but we should head back, shouldn’t we?” His smile didn’t reach his eyes, and he seemed to know it because he wouldn’t meet Jason’s gaze.

Jason took a deep breath.

“Yeah, let’s. Wouldn’t want to make them think we actually ended up kicking the bucket in your element.”

PSA about the drama

Hey guys,

Just so everyone is aware – thanks to an amazing friend who very kindly offered to mediate a discussion between us, myself and the other blog have decided to move on from all of the ugliness of the last few days and put it behind us. Both of us were very hurt and scared by things that were said, and it was obvious that we were both depressed, miserable, and that we were making life awful for not only each other, but also for ourselves. We both want to put this behind us and move on from everything that has happened – we both agree that it’s the right thing to do.

I don’t think it was very fun for the people who follow my blog to watch, and I apologise for exposing you guys to it. You were champs to tolerate so much unhappiness and drama on your dash.

I’m not going to be posting anything else relating to this matter – good, bad, or ugly. As far as I’m concerned, it’s over. Done. Finished. Things clearly escalated due to misunderstanding after misunderstanding, and I’d like to repeat again, very clearly that I do not think the awful threats I received were from this person. They were clearly from some sick mind who wanted to cause trouble.

This fandom means the world to me, as does the promotion of positivity and allowing people to be creative and to feel good. That is the kind of blog I want to continue to promote. So now it’s back to your regular scheduled viewing! Lots of multi-shipping fun, rare pair heaven, fanfiction and fanart! And of course, lots of gearing up for Mass Effect Andromeda!

Thank you to everyone for your support in this matter, and of course to my good friend for helping this to happen. You’re brilliant.

                                       HOLY SHIT THERE ARE A LOT OF YOU !!!

so, this is my 1,000th post, and i’m currently sitting at 337 followers, which i’m sure doesn’t sound like a lot when you compare the amount that a lot of people have, but i’ve only had padmé since january second of this year. that’s not even two full months, and somehow, still, over three hundred people have decided that my padmé is the kind of content they want to see. i’m still not sure why, but since i’ve hit such an amazing number and this is my 1,000th post, i wanted to do something nice for everyone and gush about how much i love you all. so without further ado, here’s my follow forever !!!

                                              THE DELEGATION OF THE 2,000

@aftcrshocks​ / @icaryian​ / @imhiscarer​ : to the shock of absolutely no one, i’m gonna take this moment to yell about my favorite person on this earth, kells. kells is probably my most staunch supporter on this website and in life, and it’s really……awe-inspiring ?? it’s amazing to me, the kind of love that kells has to give to her friends, and the unbelievably selfless ways she continues to show it day in and day out. my entire aesthetic on this blog was crafted by her, and she’s always willing to do anything at the drop of a hat, which is just !!! so much !!! we don’t deserve kells. i don’t deserve kells. she’s so talented and she’s so supportive and kind and i’d take a bullet for that woman. 

@jedibetrayer / @warcompass : in addition to being the best smad egg husband a senator could ask for, chloe is about 85% of the reason that this blog even exists, and i’ll always be forever grateful to her for that. her enthusiasm for star wars and for her muse is off the charts 100% of the time which is just A+ in my eyes. her writing is beautiful, her talent is off the fucking charts, and i just. straight up. adore that girl. 

@kybercore : sen is one of my newer friends and i’m so grateful that padmé brought me this lady because honestly ??? idk how i lived without sen in my life before now ??? sen’s writing is so amazing and her characterization is so on point and she’s always making me question my life choices every time she brings up a plot idea, but in the best way possible. i love her a lot ok.

@demandpeace : haley is just….my salt sister. like a soul sister, only closer, because we get salty about the treatment of our fave ladies and it’s EXCELLENT. i love haley even when she’s using her perfect writing to stab me in the back with padtine feels and i love her for giving me the powerful sassy space nobility girlfriends that i deserve. 

@masterofcraft / @triggrhappy : lillie was one of my first new friends on padmé and i’ll always be so glad and grateful for that. she’s been such a happy influence on my life since entering it, and has given me so many obidala feels it’s unreal. idk how i got to be so blessed but i’m so moved and grateful and never gonna stop being emo about it.

@coughbot​ / @crdered​ : MY SON. zach is my son whom i birthed and raised from infancy and is genuinely one of the sweetest and most talented souls i have ever ??? in my life ??? met ??? they write with the kind of elegance and cohesiveness that writers twice their age struggle with and i’m like. constantly amazed. also so fucking kind like call out post for zach for being TOO PURE.

@sempermemoriia​ / @penitenciia​ / @harlemforged​ : tj is pretty much my favorite of all time ??? tj is, first of all, unfairly fucking talented, and second of all, so thoughtful and observant and it’s kind of the best thing ever ??? i never have to worry that tj hasn’t read my rules or my headcanons because not only does he read all of them but also he incorporates them in everything he writes with me and honestly i love that man more than sharks love blood.

@rosecrime​ / @trustfunded​ / @redeemself​ : maddie aka my other best friend i’m so !!!! i love that girl !! i would die for her !! i’m so blessed to have so many talented friends in my life and i’m sure y’all are tired of hearing that word but EVERYONE !! IS SO TALENTED !! I’M SHOOK !! maddie is such a fucking powerhouse with her replies it leaves me shook all the time, and her characters are always so multi faceted and amazing. no one makes an oc like maddie, like you could throw an fc at her and she’d come up with a well rounded character in under an hour, i’m sure of it.

                                                THE LOYALIST COMMITTEE 

@tachiisms​ / @ofalderaan​ : liesl is hands down one of the kindest, if not The Kindest, person i have ever met on this godforsaken hellsite. i am like 100% sure she has done nothing wrong in her life, ever, and i am, frankly, in awe of her skill at writing and of the amount of positivity and love she graces my dash with on a daily basis. also her siri is so good i’m fucking Shook at all times.

@rebelsacrifice​ / @ofeffulgence​ : lyssa is so incredibly lovely it deadass amazes me all the time like what a machine with her replies ?? how do you do so many replies so fast ?? how are they all phenomenal ?? teach me ?? her characterization is always spot on and her replies are always so good and honestly I Die.

@rcbelborn​ / @eireniic​ : val pretty much constantly has me screaming, if i’m being entirely honest. i have never, in my entire life, looked at another writer on tumblr as ‘goals’ as much as i look at val as my life goal. her writing is so phenomenal and poetic and beautiful while still being coherent and concise and i stalk….everything….and it’s all amazing……i can’t believe this….

@scarificed​ / @warbones​ : i’m pretty convinced miriam is actually satan at this point and i’ve sold my soul to the devil or something but honestly if that means i get to read all of her stuff about oak and also padmé gets to kiss his face i’ll take it ?? i care so much about miriam’s oc’s and i can’t wait to read more of them tbh.

Snape is neither unequivocally good nor bad, and that is what makes him interesting: an analysis


Fan conversations about Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series are very polarized. There are fans who are very sympathetic towards him and others fans who think he is the worst, to put it in simplified terms. I can’t help to think both of these stark sets of opinions are wrong and I really wish fans were more willing to analyze Snape’s role in the overall story (rather than just his individual actions) and what they mean thematically and symbolically. So here we go…

We’re supposed to draw specific parallels between Harry, Snape, and Voldemort. In Deathly Hallows, Harry specifically refers to the three of them as the lost boys of Hogwarts. They all are (1) half-blood wizards with (2) not-so-great home lives (3) who have some particular magical talents (4) who find a place and home at Hogwarts.

Now the connections and similarities between Harry and Tom Riddle have been pointed out explicitly since at least Chamber of Secrets. However, this is also the book where Dumbledore tells us that it is our choices, far more than our abilities, that determine who we are. Snape fitting into the comparison with Harry and Voldemort is only uncovered in the last book, when his full backstory is revealed. Because there is so much going on in that book, including just what’s going on with Snape, this nuance gets overlooked in the analysis of the Harry Potter saga.

this is for you. the one that feels permanently damaged. the one that doesn’t think things could or ever will get better. the one that doesn’t want to see the light of tomorrow because they think nothing’s going to change.

stay alive, it really does get better. life can’t always be as awful as it may be right now. you deserve to be happy and you will get there. i believe in you, even if no one else does, though i’m sure that at least one other person does.

and in case nobody ever bothered to tell you this, i will tell you it: i am proud of you. so fucking proud of you for getting out of bed every single day and carrying on, even when it feels like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. i am so proud of you for continuing to fight. you are so strong. please remember that.
