and wesley right now

It’s still 08/31 in my time zone, so this is just a quick post to let everyone know that this blog will be participating in the tumblr boycott that’s happening on 09/01/17. More info on the boycott here. We’ll be back on the second !!


Mod Wesley

corvidcaron  asked:

Is there a Wil Wheaton figurine available to purchase? I like to decorate my computer desk with figures that inspire me. I have a little Wesley, because the character taught me to never be ashamed of being smart, but Wil Wheaton the person has been infinitely more inspiring to me. Also, my cat keeps stealing Wesley's phaser.

OMG you’re so sweet! 

Right now, there isn’t anything like that, I don’t think. But Joel Watson and I did some plushies a few years ago, and I’m seriously considering doing something on my own that’s like an action figure or a Funko-style thing … I just don’t know how I would make it happen, and what it would cost. 

I tell you what you could do, though: get one of those Wesleys from the TNG set, draw a beard on him, and then cut a T-shirt out of paper and dress him up. If you really wanted to get crazy go nuts, you could paint his arms to match his face, and do my tattoos, too.

Family Road trip

Wes Tucker x Reader 

Words: 938

Warnings: none

Prompt: You meet Wes at a hotel you’re both staying at before press play and his kisses you

I wasn’t sure if you meant before he went on the tour or if you meant before a show but I hope you like it either way.



This “Family road trip” as my parents called it, had to be about the worst idea they’ve ever had. It wasn’t enough to be stuck in a car with my family for hours, but now our car had broke down and we had to stay here until it was fixed. We were forced to get a hotel room because apparently it’s going to take days to fix the car.

As I carry my things to the room, I grumble to myself about how this trip couldn’t get any worse. I was now sharing a tiny hotel room with my whole family and a bed with my sister. It’s not like I didn’t love my family, I just enjoyed having some time and space to myself. Plus my parents argue a lot.

We had barely gotten all our stuff in our room when my parents started fighting. My sister locked herself in the bathroom to avoid it so I decided to explore the rest of the hotel. Anything was better than watching them scream at each other.

As soon as I walk out the door, I’m almost plowed over. Someone had been walking by right as I walked out the door.

“I’m so sorry.” They apologize as  they grab my elbow to help steady me.

“No, it’s okay. It was my….” I trail off as I look up at him. He was gorgeous. “Um. It was my fault too.”

He lets go of my elbow and takes a step back. “I’m Wesley.” He introduces himself as I close the door behind me.

“Uh. I’m Y\N.” I flinch as I hear my parents start yelling at each other through the door. I finally meet someone my age and my parents were going to scare him off without even meeting him. Typical.

“I’m assuming you’re trying to get away from that.” He nods his head towards the door.

“Yeah,” I wince. “They start fighting pretty much every time something goes wrong. I’m sorry if your room is nearby.”

“It’s fine. I’m down the hall a ways anyway.” he pauses and bites his lip. “Um. I was just about to go get something to eat.  Do you wanna come with me?”

“Uh, yeah. Just let me go grab some money. I don’t have any on me right now.” I start to turn around but Wesley stops me.

“No, I’ll pay. I don’t want you to go back in there if you’re trying to avoid it.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yeah. It’s no problem. Really, it isn’t.”

Damn, he was cute and he was nice. Too bad we probably wouldn’t see each other again after we left this hotel.

We walk down the street until we come to a small diner that Wesley swears is amazing.

“So, Y\N, how long are you in town for?” Wesley asks after we order.

“I’m not sure actually. We’re supposed to be on a “family road trip” but our car broke down. We’re staying here until it gets fixed I guess.” I shrug and take a sip from my cup of coffee.

Wesley and I talk about anything and everything as we eat. And even when we’re done we stay at the diner, talking and drinking unhealthy amounts of coffee. We left the hotel around five and by the time we leave it’s a little after midnight.

I stop myself from letting out a sigh when we reach my door. I really like Wes and I’m not sure I’ll ever see him again. He’s about to start the press play tour and I’m going home soon.

“I really liked hanging out with you, Wes. I wish we were both here longer.” I say quietly. I’m sure everyone in my room was sleeping and I didn’t want to wake anyone up.

“Yeah, me too.” He whispers. “I don’t want this to be the last time we see each other.”

“Me either.” Without realizing it, Wes and I had drifted closer to each other as we spoke. Now there was only about an inch of space between us that I was dying to get rid of.

My breath gets stuck in my throat when wes brings his hand up to my face and cups my cheek.

“Can I kiss you?” he asks as he runs his thumb across my bottom lip.

I’m scared that my voice will crack if I speak, so I only nod. My eyes flutter shut as Wesley starts to lean in.

I’ve been waiting for this kiss since I laid eyes on him and it’s even better than I imagined. I feel like there’s electric sparks running through me, starting where Wesley’s lips met mine.

The kiss stays short and gentle, which only leaves me wanting more. His thumb moves back to my lips as he pulls away.

“I promise that I’ll text and call you all the time. Pretty soon you’ll be getting sick of me.” he says softly.

I smile. “I don’t think I’ll ever be getting sick of you.”

His smile pretty much takes up his whole face. We just stand there for a few minutes, smiling at each other like idiots.

“Okay. I should let you get back to your room. It’s late.” He leans down and kisses me one last time.

“Goodnight, Y\N.” He starts to back up as he speaks.

“Goodnight Wesley.”

I grab the key to the room from my back pocket once he’s out of my sight. Gently closing the door behind me, I lean against it and let out a happy sigh. Maybe this whole “family road trip” wasn’t the worst idea after all.

Yay my first Wesley fic! Thanks for the request, Anon. :)

James Wesley x Reader

 

Y/N was sprawled out on her couch watching Netflix when she heard a knock at her door.  She reluctantly tore herself from the warmth of her nest of blankets on the couch and padded over to her door, swinging it open to reveal her best friend, James Wesley.  “Hey, Wes.  What brings you to my humble abode?” She asked dramatically.  Usually Wesley would chuckle at her theatrics, but today she could see that he was stressed out.  His usually bright blue eyes were hooded with exhaustion and his shoulders were slumped as if he were carrying the weight of the world on them.  She closed the door behind him and led him to the couch.

Aubree: “I don’t think you should feel bad, Den. Wesley is in an awful place right now. He’ll figure out what he needs eventually and come to someone when he needs help.”

Denise: “But the more he’s left on his own, the more self destructive his thoughts get. I don’t know what we can do to help him…”

Aubree: “I guess you’re right. He doesn’t like talking to anyone in the family though. He’s only just sort of made amends with Dad. I’ll try and call him and see if he wants to meet up sometime.”

Denise: “Thank you, Aubree. Someone needs to speak to him and I think it’s best if I avoid him for a while after everything that’s happened…”

Wesley:

Well, since apparently I’m the expert on breaking things off- I guess you really need to take into account a couple different things. One of the more obvious being, just how often will you be seeing them at school? Since that seems to be one of your biggest concerns. If it’s a big school, and you generally don’t take the same classes, then those few awkward instances seem trivial in comparison to feeling like you’re trapped in an unsatisfying relationship.

Sam:

Well how do you think I feel? I have to see you all the fucking time when you pull this shit!

Wesley:

…We go to a small school…literally everyone knows each other.. A-anyway, another thing to consider is duration. How much longer will you be in school? If it’s your last year you hardly have anything to worry about, and if it’s your first it gives you at least three years for the other person to come to terms with what happened. How they react to it is out of your hands, and you have to realize that you can’t blame them if they react negatively. Which brings me to a touchier subject with most breaking couples: How great was the friendship prior to becoming involved with the other person? If in fact there was a friendship there? This aspect is different for everyone, and it’s something that ultimately only you can make a decision on. If you were great friends prior then you have to take into account that the friendship will be damaged, but it’s not always unfixable, because yes sometimes you can remain friends with your exes, and no it doesn’t always mean that “one of you still has feelings” or “didn’t really love” the other.

Sam:

…I mean he’s right, I found that the whole list escapade was a good example of reconciling our friendship.. we didn’t even get together right away after that which was nice because I got to see what it was like to be your just your friend.

Wesley:

Also if you’re worried about specifically when school starts up, I’m assuming you’re limiting your interactions this summer, so maybe the other person senses that this might be coming to an end? But whatever you do, even after taking all this into consideration, don’t force yourself to stay in a relationship you aren’t feeling. Even if it’s not bad, or making you terribly sad. If you feel the need to break it off then just do it, because you deserve to live as you choose, whether it be as part of a couple or not.

Sam:

Yea, but I mean at least follow some break up etiquette? Do it in person, and don’t send your friends to do it for you. Also be respectful, I’m not saying you have to be gentle because if the other person isn’t backing off then feel free to be as firm as you feel you need to be, but just- you know be civil about it? Relationships are for mature people, so break ups should be handled maturely.

Wesley:

We had to learn that the hard way didn’t we?

Sam:

Yeah, guess we did…

Wesley:

But we’re cool now right?

Sam:

We’re magnificent.

Response to a white woman who believes black men want then cud they are better

It seems that an article was written to Sister 2 Sister magazine by a Caucasian woman who requested a response from black men. I’m so glad she got what she asked for (and more) !!!

Dear Jamie: I’m sorry but I would like to challenge some of your Black male readers. I am a White female who is engaged to a Black male-good-looking, educated and loving. I just don’t understand a lot of Black female’s attitudes about our relationship. My man decided he wanted me because the pickings amongst Black women were slim to none. As he said they were either too fat, too loud, too mean, too argumentative, too needy, too materialistic or carrying too much excess baggage. Before I became engaged, whenever I went out I was constantly approached by Black men, willing to wine and dine me and give me the world. If Black women are so up in arms about us being with their men, why don’t they look at themselves and make some changes. I am tired of the dirty looks I get and snide remarks when we’re out in public. I would like to hear from some Black men about why we are so appealing and coveted by them. Bryant Gumbel just left his wife of 26 years for one of us Charles Barkley, Scottie Pippen, the model Tyson Beckford, Montell Williams, Quincy Jones, James Earl Jones, Harry Belafonte, Sydney Poitier, Kofi Anan, Cuba Gooding Jr., Don Cornelius, Berry Gordy, Billy Blanks, Larry Fishburne, Wesley Snipes… I could go on and on. But, right now, I’m a little angry and that is why I wrote this so hurriedly. Don’t be mad with us White women because so many of your men want us. Get your acts together and learn from us and we may lead you to treat your men better. If I’m wrong, Black men, let me know. Disgusted White Girl, Somewhere in VA

RESPONSE:

Dear Jamie: I would like to respond to the letter written by A Disgusted White Girl. Let me start by saying that I am a 28-year old black man. I graduated from one of the most prestigious universities in Atlanta, Georgia with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management. I have a good job at a major corporation and have recently purchased a house. So, I consider myself to be among the ranks of successful black men. I will not use my precious time to slander white people. I just want to set the record straight of why black men date white women. Back in the day, one of the biggest reasons why black men dated white women was because they were considered easy. The black girls in my neighborhood were raised in the church. They were very strict about when they lost their virginity and who they lost it to. Because of our impatience to wait, brothers would look for someone who would give it up easy without too much hassle. So, they turned to the white girls. Nowadays, in my opinion, a lot of brothers date white women because they are docile and easy to control. A lot of black men, because of insecurities, fears, and overall weaknesses, have become intimidated by the strength of our black women. We are afraid that our woman will be more successful than us, make more money than us, drive nicer cars and own bigger houses. Because of this fear, many black men look for a more docile woman. Someone we can control. I have talked to numerous black men and they continuously comment on how easy it is to control and walk over their white women. I just want to set the record straight. I want A Disgusted White Girl to know that not all successful black men date white women. Brothers like Ahmad Rashad, Denzel Washington, Michael Jordan, Morris Chestnut, Will Smith, Blair Underwood, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Chris Rock all married strong black women And, to flip the script, there are numerous white men, in and out of the spot light, who openly or secretly desire black women over white women. Ted Danson, Robert DeNiro, and David Bowie to name a few. I just don’t want a disgusted white girl to be misinformed Stop thinking that because you are white that you are some type of goddess. Remember, when black Egyptian Queens like Hatsepshut and Nitorcris were ruling Dynasties and armies of men in Egypt, you were over in the caves of Europe eating raw meat and beating each other over the head with clubs. Read your history! It was the black woman that taught you how to cook and season your food. It was the black woman that taught you how to raise your children. It was black women who were breast feeding and raising your babies during slavery. It is the black woman that had to endure watching their fathers, husbands, and children beaten, killed, and thrown in jail. Black women were born with two strikes against them: being black and being a woman. And, through all this, Still They Rise!

It is because of the black women’s strength, elegance, power, love and beauty that I could> never> date anyone except my black Queen. It is not just the outer beauty that captivates and draws me to them. It is not the fact that they come in all shapes, sizes, colors and shades that I love them. Their inner beauty is what I find most appealing about black women. Their strong spirit, loving and nurturing souls, their integrity, their ability to overcome great obstacles, their willingness to stand for what they believe in, and their determination to succeed and reach their highest potential while enduring great pain and suffering is why I have fallen in love with black women. I honestly believe that your anger is geared more toward jealousy and envy more so than snotty looks. If this were not so, then why do you continuously go to tanning salons to darken your skin? If you are so proud to be white, then why don’t you just be happy with your pale skin? Why do you continue to inject your lips, hips, and breasts with unnatural and dangerous substances so you can look fuller and more voluptuous? I think that your anger is really a result of you wanting to have what the black woman has.

BOTTOM LINE: If I were looking for a docile woman, someone I can walk over and control, I would give you a call. But, unfortunately, I am looking for a Virtuous Woman. Someone that can be a good wife and mother to my children. Someone who can be my best friend and understands my struggles. I am looking for a soul mate. I am looking for a sister and; unfortunately, you do not and CANNOT fit the bill. No offense taken, none given. Signed, Black Royalty.

Can I just say how much I love Wesley right now?

I mean seriously - I love this route. I’m not far along in it yet, but it is absolutely light years away from how the first couple of routes started out. I’ve played all but Leonardo’s at this point. Wesley’s route is what I was expecting when Oz’s route arrived, but Oz turned out to be weird too (I dunno, his route was boring and he never seemed to click for me).

But dang. Wesley’s is good. He’s confident without being a jerk to Dorothy, seems to care for her well-being, & for the first time in any of this game’s routes, believably behaves like he is actually attracted to her - romantically & sexually.

Crowlie seemed more in love with the idea of Dorothy than Dorothy herself, likening her to an angel and all this romantic notion stuff, but he never really seemed to be very open to Dorothy in his route (apart from the Our Secret Lesson - woah, I was not expecting stuff that hot from him). Heartmann was similar, but much, much whinier/more insecure. A good portion of the story, he’s completely cut off from her emotionally thanks to Norton’s shenanigans.

I mean, those sort of work with their characters - Crowlie’s seems more like he learned about love from books in the actual way he goes about relationships, because he really does learn all of this stuff from books, but it doesn’t make for a very satisfying story. He seemed very immature for his role as King of Oz, especially as he’s been at this job for some years now - I would have expected that to get him up to speed a lot quicker, but instead he’s still very teenager-y about a lot of things.

Heartmann just plain didn’t grow about relationships at all. I remember being frequently annoyed by him in his route, thought it’s been a while now since I played it. I’m still plain annoyed by all three of them – all Heartmann, Crowlie, and Leonardo ever seem to do is bog down the story with whole tickets’ worth of arguing over who should/shouldn’t be Dorothy’s boyfriend. Who ate someone else’s food (it’s either Toto Jr. or Leo, spoiler alert). Yada yada yada. I completely zoned out for Oz’s route as they went for Oz & Wesley arguing instead. Just hit the fast forward till something changes, please.

But so far, the whinging has been minimal compared to earlier routes: it seems like people acquiesced to Dorothy’s choice quicker & with less fuss than previously - which is ironic, since they should be arguing more here, as she chose the Wicked Wizard of the West this time - and the banquet seemed to go over a lot speedier (and may I say YES on that dress? I seriously disliked the Quadlings dress for the first four routes).

I like Wesley’s lines. I like Wesley’s cute little Chibi. I like how he interacts with Dorothy. I loved the cute little scene where she promises to say “Good Night” to him every night until her birthday. I love how he jumps right in and plays with her hair and shows that he wants to kiss her. I love how Dorothy in return shows real interest in him, wanting to know what his eye under the patch looks like and wanting to be a friend to him - not out of a seeming debt that she melted him last time round, but because she realises how lonely this guy has been. I’m really liking him right now.

Though am I the only one who thought of Lay when he does the whole blow in her ear thing?

anonymous asked:

what would u recommend for womyn who want to lift weights and get stronger? i have always wanted to do this (and seeing you and the look you have achieved has really inspired me) but i have no idea how to break into it. i have some friends who do things like crossfit but im way too broke for something like that...

Hey friend! Happy to hear from you.

Starting up with weights can be really intimidating! It really took me a year or two until I could say I had any sort of confidence in the gym - I’ve found that the trick is to just keep showing up. I can understand why so many folks like crossfit, it’s kind of a way to get your hand held through the beginning process and then it’s help with motivation if you’re the type to be motivated by group classes and that sort of accountability. I’ve been much more interested in directing my own strength journey, and like you obviously know, crossfit boxes can really be super prohibitively expensive. 

My suggestion is to find a relatively basic beginners program, and stick to the program to the letter for at least a few months (3 months bare minimum). I really like Stronglifts 5x5 for absolute beginners, because you only have to learn 5 highly effective compound movements (squat, bench, deadlift, overhead press, and row) and there is a clear weekly progression for how to move up weights on those movements. All of these movements can be practiced at home with a PVC pipe to gain some comfort with your form before you go into the gym, which can go a long ways towards alleviating the anxiety a lot of us feel going into a gym for the first time. Once you’ve gained a little comfort and proficiency in the basic movements (which could be 3 months, but might be as long as 6 months or a year - take your time, you will almost certainly be able to keep progressing on stronglifts for an entire year if you are a beginner and follow the program to the letter), you might want to move on to a program that has more variation in movement. My favorite “intermediate beginner” program right now is Chad Wesley Smith’s Juggernaut Beginner program, which introduces many more movements (most of which can still be practiced at home with a PVC pipe) and is more of a bodybuilding-style volume (less sets, more reps).
I’d recommend bringing your phone in to the gym with you, and don’t be afraid to look up videos of the movements or to take videos of yourself to look at your own form. I know the idea of the gym can be intimidating, but in my experience, most everyone has their heads down worrying about their own lifts and programming, and almost everyone has had the same gym anxieties - but the only folks getting stronger are the ones that fight through that and keep showing up. We were all new once, we were all small once - but we kept showing up. There’s no reason for you not to start now.

Good luck, and feel free to write again any time!

We’re just here to keep pushing music foreward and breaking stereotypes and boundaries and creating an environment where everybody can be free free to create and express who they are, so… Thank you guys so much for being there. And, I just wanna say there’s so much negative stuff happening in the world right now, so, it’s up to us to be as positive as we can right now.
