and they're so serious about it

Reasons why I love Static

A good hero works well with others

Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was

And it’s not the last time either. You see it here

and here

he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.

He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help

I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.

and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…

Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.

And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.

Static knows when to fight

but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand

and sure, he jokes around

but he also knows how important the work he does is

and he also knows what happens if he messes up

His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.

and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues

they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.

They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.

Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.

let’s talk about malec being protective boyfriends

we have alec who kept defending magnus to his family (especially maryse) and demanding that they show him respect and finally realise how serious he is about magnus and that their relationship is valid and important

we have magnus who literally saved alec’s life because he ran to the roof just after hearing ‘alec, no.’ he’s so powerful and alec means so much to him and he told jace just that and jace finally understood that magnus is extremely serious about alec

can you believe how much they’re in love

Casual players who are 'intimidated' by competitive play are players that don't spend much money on the game because it's not a game they care enough about to learn to play better, yet it seems they're the ones WOTC wants to alienate serious players (the money spenders) in favor of? TCGs are competitive by nature. The very point of them is to continuously spend money to get better cards so that you can win games. Discouraging players who follow that golden rule is discouraging money spending.

You are perpetuating all sorts of false stereotypes here. There are many different types of Magic players that play for different reasons. High-end Competition is one aspect but it is actually a tiny piece of the overall web of Magic players.

Been receiving messages about my OC Cin/Sin (still contemplating on how I want to call them… Cin is a closer nickname to their actual name, but “Sin” is something that’s always stuck for years lmao) but god– yeah I need to show more love to them, I’m currently restructuring their personality a bit. I refer to Cin as “they/them” btw. ^^ 

Jack meeting Bitty's parents as Bitty's boyfriend

Okay, so I was watching a soccer game earlier and I thought- ‘Jack Zimmerman, he’s Canadian, he loves hockey but what if he loves soccer too’ but like, he doesn’t call it soccer, he calls it football.

So for years, Bitty had to put up with more football talk, always kinda tuning it out because he had to listen to it ALL THE TIME at home and now he had to hear his boyfriend ramble on and on about whoever when he just - doesn’t DO football, and he never once realized that Jack is talking about soccer.

When Jack and Coach finally meet face to face, Bitty introducing him to his parent as his boyfriend (even though they’ve been friends for a while) he automatically shoves him towards Coach while he talks shop with his Ma and is just like “As a conversation starter, you both like football.” and he leaves them alone for a while to talk.

But things get hilariously bad.

All of a sudden there’s yelling, and Jack is slipping back into French and Coach is becoming incoherent because they’re arguing and yelling so loud that Suzanne had to escort Coach out of the house to cool off while Bitty drags Jack off to his room to do the same.

And when Bitty, an hour later when everyone is calmed down, asks Jack what’s wrong in the most adorably confused voice he can muster, Jack just scowls and makes this face of pure disbelief/shock/disgust and says in the most serious voice-

“He thought I was talking about American Football.

And bitty, he just laughs so hard, and when Jack asks what’s wrong he kisses the dickens out of him because “this boy…”

I can basically recognize another gemini by whether or not I see them trying repeatedly to add something to the discussion and getting talked over by everyone else, followed by everyone else accusing them of monopolizing the conversation

BATB Characters' Views on Selfies
  • Belle: takes them occasionally to show off particularly happy moments.
  • Adam: does not take them frequently at all. when he does he crowds himself out by pulling in every available person to join him in a group selfie
  • Maurice: takes them from an angle somewhere below his face and always gets distracted halfway through, so they're all blurry and terrible and perfect representations of him
  • Lumiere: takes about 200 every single day. they are all lovingly lit and posed, except for the ones he snapped by accident because he got distracted smiling at Plumette
  • Cogsworth: is very serious about them and very conscientious about angles and lighting. Still somehow always takes them way too close to his face
  • Plumette: plumette's selfies could punch me in the face and i wouldn't care
  • Mrs. Potts: somehow the selfie queen?? everyone is surprised
  • Chip: we all know chip is a meme lord
  • Chapeau: never shows his selfies to anyone but takes really good ones
  • Gaston: ugh
  • LeFou: takes them with Stanley
  • Stanley: takes them with LeFou
  • Cadenza: who needs selfies when Garderobe is taking your picture all the time
  • Garderobe: why take a selfie when your beloved is posting constant videos of you all the time like you're a goddess
  • Frou-Frou: got his paws on Garderobe's phone and filled it with 10,000 terrible pictures of himself
  • The Enchantress: doesn't get this 'selfie' thing and writes angry rants about it for magazines

God I really need to know how the conversation about moving in together went. Who brought it up first? How? Did Eskild jokingly say, "if Even is going to be basically living here, he should pay rent too so at least one of you is on time." And then they were just like, huh, you right. They're too much.

hehehe, i love this 💝  

eskild would totally tease them like that, these darlings he actually cares about so much. but when isak tells him he’s moving out, eskild grows serious, and he puts his hand on isak’s shoulder, and tells him “you know i was kidding about even paying rent, right? he knows he’s always welcome here, right?” and isak leans his head to the side, a little smile on his face. and he seems happy, genuinely happy, and he tells eskild “he knows, he knows. but we’re just…ready for this? it’s something we both really want” and eskild sighs, and there’s this understanding look in his eyes as he nods 

and the next morning, isak and eskild find themselves alone in the kitchen, and eskild is about to make some tea when he tells isak “you guys let me know if you need any help with moving out, okay? i’m not working a lot this week so i have a lot of free time” and isak smiles at him, tells him “thank you, eskild.” and there’s a short moment of silence and then isak’s brows furrow a little before he starts saying “thank you, really. for…everything?” he looks up and his eyes meet eskild’s and he continues “i’ll always remember that night at the…gay club. when you came to see me and you brought me here because i didn’t want to go home. you didn’t have to do that, but you did and it helped me and”. he takes a deep breath, and eskild remains silent, lets him say what he wants and needs to say. “you were there for me a lot and i know i wasn’t always the best roommate and i know i said some things that hurt you at some point, but i’m so fucking thankful? i don’t know where i’d be right now if it weren’t for you” 

there’s so much sincerity in his tone, and eskild is speechless for a while. but then he’s quickly wrapping his arms around isak, and squeezing him, and he tells him “why are you talking to me like this is the last time you’re seeing me? i’m not going anywhere, kid. i’ll still be here, and you better come and see me, you and even, diner here at least once a month, okay? at least” and isak lets out a sigh as he hugs eskild back, replies “i’m just really thankful for everything, and i know i haven’t said thank you enough and i know sometimes i’m just bad with, like, words, but i just wanted you to know” and so eskild lets go of him, his hands still on isak’s shoulders, so he could look at him, this boy he had seen grow, this boy he is so incredibly proud of, and a smile spreads across his face as he says “i know, isak, i know”

The gender reveal
  • (The year is 2017; Harry and Draco, aged 37, find themselves at a gender reveal party.)
  • Draco: I don't understand this at all, Potter.
  • Harry, sighing: It's George's newest bestseller. St Mungo's sends WWW the fetus's sex and they magic fireworks to reveal the news. Blue fireworks for boy, pink for girl.
  • Draco: I know that. What I don't understand is why.
  • Harry: It's insane. That's why you don't understand. And another thing! It's not a "gender" reveal. It's a "sex" reveal.
  • Draco, raising an eyebrow: You and Hermione need to stop reading those Witch and Gender Studies books.
  • Harry: I'm serious! All they know is whether the baby will come out with a penis!
  • Draco: Admittedly, an important factor. Oh Salazar, look. We are not playing this game, Harry.
  • Harry: What are they doing?!
  • Draco: I think they're Charming one team blue and one team pink and having them race? This is so undignified. Quick, Disillusion me. Did you bring your Cloak?
  • Harry: Shut up. What I don't understand is, who cares if they have a boy or a girl?
  • Draco: Say what you want about Pureblood traditions, Potter. Call us regressive. Call us bigoted. We would never tolerate this nonsense. Only you barmy progressives could come up with something so preposterous.
  • Harry: Oh bloody hell. Now they have pink and blue cakes and we're supposed to guess the sex by way of eating cake.
  • Draco: Can I demand a blue cake with pink frosting?
  • Harry, laughing: Yes! Let's do it! Let's sneak up and Transfigure them! You make the blue frosting pink on yours. I'm going to make my whole cake rainbow. Can I write "Queer AF" on top? That's what the kids say these days, right?
  • Draco, smirking: Oh, I dare you. If you actually do that, I will do the dishes for a month.
  • ....... Five minutes later......
  • Harry, grimacing: I've never seen a grandmother so angry.
  • Draco, scowling: I've never been accused of brainwashing a fetus before.
  • Harry: Do you think we can leave yet?
  • Draco: Potter, you are the most conspicuous guest at any gathering. No, I don't think we can sneak out before the penis-status announcement.
  • Harry: Have I mentioned how stupid I think this is.
  • Draco: A few hundred times. And though you know I agree with you, you need to stop whining about it.
  • Harry, smirking: Make me, Malfoy.
  • *Heated snogging*
  • Draco: Oh good, here comes the announcement about the presence or absence of the fetus vagina.
  • Harry, snickering: I don't think I've ever heard you say the word 'vagina' before.
  • Draco: Well, it's not in my general vocabulary.
  • Harry: Thank Merlin for that. ... Oh God, here it comes.
  • *Fireworks*
  • Draco: Annnnnnnnnd the fetus has a penis.
  • Harry: I don't understand how I'm supposed to be feeling right now. Am I supposed to be happy?
  • Draco: I don't know. Salazar. I am NOT wearing one of those "It's a Wizard!" hats.
  • Harry: Can we leave yet?
  • Draco: Yes, thank Merlin.
  • Harry: Do we have to say goodbye?
  • Draco: You have absolutely no manners.
  • Harry: Well what the fuck am I supposed to say? Glad to hear your fetus has a cock?
  • Draco: Just shut your mouth and I will do the pleasantries for both of us, then we can go home and I'll show you what else has a cock.
  • Harry, leering: Can we do a reveal with fireworks?

anonymous asked:

Why did Robert dislike Stannis? I can't think of a reason that wouldn't also apply to Ned. The pros would be that they're both obedient and dutiful. The cons would be that Robert would find them too boring/serious. They're not the same character but I can't see what he loves about Ned that he hates about Stannis.

You’ve just put your finger on the main reason why Stannis resents Ned so much. Because yes, Stannis and Ned are not really that different which is exactly why Robert’s close friendship with Ned hurts Stannis tremendously. Ned is the brother Robert chose above Stannis which is something Stannis does not understand, he is just like me Robert, can’t you see? Why did you pick him and not me?

We don’t get an outright explanation to why Robert dislikes Stannis but considering all the talk about Stannis’ grim personality and how Stannis himself ruminates on how different he and Robert are, and how different they are viewed by others, it seems like a classic case of different personalities and temperament that created a rift between the brothers as the reserved and serious Stannis made for a disappointing prospect in companion to the lively and wild Robert. I believe it’s Robert’s fosterage at a young age that played a huge part in the chasm between the two Baratheons though. The two brothers never really built a relationship because while it’s possible for fostered children to still have a good relationship with their siblings (hence Ned’s strong attachment to his own siblings), I don’t see Robert going out of his way to stay in touch and build a relationship with Stannis, and Stannis…. well, Stannis had trouble reaching out and showing vulnerability, and the one time we hear about him doing so as a youth with Proudwing, he abruptly got smacked down by both Robert and their great uncle. So with distance, and no interest in forging a relationship, their disconnection grew.

Comparatively, while Ned shares an introverted and reserved nature with Stannis, he was Robert’s childhood and teenage companion. It was Ned that shared Robert’s new exciting life in the Eyrie, Ned that he trained with in the yard and squired alongside, Ned that he built a brotherly bond with. It’s a given that Jon Arryn took great care in fostering friendship and kinship between his two wards, and Ned’s strong family values and good relationship with his siblings surely also appealed greatly to Robert whose relationship with his own brother was aloof and distant. Ned also had experience with a Robert-like character in his brother Brandon, and so probably was quite used to dealing with (and somewhat indulging) a wild and boisterous character like Robert. And when you take into consideration Robert’s knack for romanticizing things, I’m sure the Vale felt like a grand new adventure that he got to experience, and Ned was the person he got to experience it with which built a brotherly bond between them.

With how fosterage relationships is regarded as being equivalent to blood relationships, and with Robert building relationships there that he did not have back home, Robert all but replaced his blood family with his foster one, something he displayed repeatedly and made no secret of. Once Robert found a new family in Ned and Jon Arryn, and later zeroed in on the Starks as his chosen prospective family, his relationship with Stannis was doomed. He simply couldn’t be bothered. Robert is notoriously lazy, and he had a brother he liked in Ned, one that came with a family that actually likes each other and that Robert can be a member of, so why should he exert himself to build a relationship with a brother he did not like, especially since all of Stannis’ good qualities existed in Ned anyway?
