Seeing Barry scold Wally and comfort Frankie (and then look over at Iris) made me realize how much I want to see Barry as a dad (to his and Iris' children ofc). I've loved seeing him get pepalks over the past two years, and learning etc, but I'm ready to see him grow beyond that.

I also would love to see him as a father to his kids. I think he would be very emotional and invested when it comes to his children, sometimes to a fault even. I’m not sure if we’ll ever see Barry as a parent on the show, but we do have his mentoring of Wally and Jesse to look forward to so far!


“For the past five years now I’ve been part of something so special I don’t think any of us really understand, something that can mean the world to people and put a smile on the face of our fans even in the darkest times. To a lot of people it’s just a bunch of silly kids in a band but to the people involved it means so much more.”

Can we please take one moment to realize that l i t e r a l l y since day 1 Liam’s been what’s kept this entire family together. This happened on live show 1 can you understand. Almost 5 years ago. And he’s still the same. He is the glue holding 1D and the entire fandom together. He is so important and as I’ve said a million times he’s not given enough credit. We’d be sooo fucked if he ever left. We should be talking all the time about how indispensable he is. I love Liam. I love Liam so much.

I never realized just how badly I’ve missed you until I knew I couldn’t tell you things anymore. Like how I couldn’t gloat to you when I passed that exam I always complained to you about, or when I did the things we planned to do together, or how I watched the new episode of our favorite show and how much I wanted to rant to you about it. I never realized how badly I’ve missed you until I saw you look down at the ground while I passed by you; you couldn’t even look at me, but I couldn’t look at anything or anyone but you. I realized I’ve missed you when Taylor Swift came on shuffle, and I couldn’t picture anything but you singing along, like you always used to. And I remember how much I rolled my eyes every time you did, but god, I miss it so much now. I miss your silliness, your excitement, and just how happy you made me feel. I’d do anything to have that back. I’d do anything to have you back. I’m not ready to let you go.

From me 2 u:

Fuck, It’s ironic how the older I get, the more I come to realize that I still have so much to learn. And what also blows my mind, is how the older I get I also become more compassionate, more loving, more kind. Growing up I felt I was more jaded, a bit negative, and definitely a brat full of angst. Most people do the opposite- start life with a sense of innocence, and hope, and then slowly become this tainted screwed up bitter being. So, to say the least, I’m grateful. And I’ve found that being able to be vulnerable at the right moments, is showing true strength, not weakness. It really takes a strong soul to be able to be open to feel so deeply.

I wish I could bottle this feeling I have and share it with y’all, but instead I’ll give you the best advice to (my idea of) happiness. It’s about being able to walk through fire and get to the other side, enlightened from the light of the flames.

If you sit in a cloud harboring your resentment you won’t have the clarity to see and appreciate what may be in front of you. You could end up missing the best opportunities with work, life, love, and friendships because you’re so wrapped up in the past and what HAS happened to you that you may forget you still have the rest of your life to have GREAT miracles take place. In my opinion, sometimes you have to go through hell in order to be able to appreciate heaven when you see it. My life now is more complete than ever before, and it wasn’t the easiest journey to get to this moment, and it’s still not fuckin over. Every lesson, every instance, negative and/or positive will bring you to a moment of happiness. It’s about your perspective.. Find the positivity in it. Whether it be a lesson learned or a time that shows growth or brings inspiration. There is always something to be gained with every experience we have.

Let yourself feel, let yourself have actions that speak louder than your words. Remember, what you think, you become. What you say, you manifest. So when you DO speak, make it count.
Spread love to others, and like my parents have always said, “If you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing at all.” Because the less negative shit you say about others, the less negative you’ll feel about yourself.

#hello friends #hello loved ones #have you been watching the best show on TV


another meme I won’t finish; 4/5 actresses
You’re watching us and you don’t realize how much makeup, how much lighting is involved when we look good. We have a lot of help where we are. I don’t think it’s healthy for young girls to be looking at these beauty magazines and watching TV and these shows and thinking that’s the standard. There’s more European attitude - you look at French film, Spanish film, they’re a little more open to quirks and human nature. We’re not all symmetrical, not all the same shape. We need more of that.  – Natalie Dormer


I finally finished my poster for 1989!!! It took me a total of 12 hours BUT IM REALLY HAPPY WITH HOW IT TURNED OUT.

I’m seeing Taylor in Montreal on July 7th, and I seriously CANNOT WAIT. Over the last few months I’ve been freaking out because it felt like I had no ideas for a cute costume or clever lyrical pun to write on a poster.. It took me awhile, but I finally realized that I might as well draw something!! It’s not really creative, clever, or funny… But I combined my love for drawing and Taylor and I don’t think I could express how much she means to me in any other way.

I know it’s really really small, especially for a “poster”… but I’m going to be in the pit and I don’t know what the poster policies are, so I’m basically going to attempt to sneak it in! I don’t think Taylor will have a chance to see it at the show because she’ll be so busy performing and it really is tiny, so I’m hoping she’ll see it here. It would really truly be a dream if she does see it (OR SIGNS IT but that’s another story and asking for luck I seriously don’t have)

SO taylorswift I hope you like it, and thank you for the past 8 years, they’ve been the best of my life. See you soon 😊💓

Yooooo this has helped me so much.
I realized my love language (what makes me feel loved the most by my partner) is words of affirmation and physical touch so that’s how I show love as well but that’s not my girls love language. So honestly I haven’t been loving her right this whole damn time in her terms of love. Her love language is acts of service so instead of always being so mushy I’ve got to do more shit and help out to show here I love her a lot cuz that speaks more to her heart then me saying some shit where as me idc if I come home and u cleaned the house like I’d appreciate it but I’d melt if you just grab my face and shower me with love and tell me u missed me and kiss me all over like a puppy Lmbo. So figure out ur partners love language trust me it pays off.👌🏾

And when I first met you, I never would have imagined that I would develop such strong feelings for you.
You blew my mind.
And suddenly you were not just my Saturday night.
You became my Sunday and every other day of the week.
And suddenly you were my everything. The scariest thing was realizing just how much you really mean to me.
You showed me another side.
And suddenly you, a once stranger, are the only person I know better than I even know myself. How every whisper, every laugh, every smile brings me closer and closer.
You drove me insane.
And suddenly I realized I had never known what it was like to have my heart flutter.
And when I first met you, I never would have imaged that I would love you.


this is the monologue of youth 




Without even realizing, time moves really fast, and 22nd of October 2014 is finally here. Counting the days since B.A.P debuted on 26th January 2012 it’s finally 1000 days since the debut date, and it’s amazing how B.A.P has come this far. I am so proud of you boys who have reached this far, and achieved so many things you aimed for in life. On 12 of February this year, you boys finally made to the top three in a music show and finally won for the first time. Though it’s a little late, but i believe you guys did a great job, and you guys always did good in everything. It’s incredible how two years changed you guys’ life so much, but definitely did’nt change the six of you, the same Yongguk, Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jongup and Zelo. Thank you so much for existing. I could not show how am i so thankful towards the six of you. Therefore, the only thing i could do is keep on supporting all of you forever, no matter what, even if something tries to break this feeling, to cut off my world from the six of you, no matter if it’s going to be a rough life one day, with lots of problems, with lots of unexpected tragedies, i won’t stop cherishing every one of you, inside and out. My only wish is that you guys will forever be as ‘6’ but even if something happened, keep the ‘6’ in heart. I love you guys so much. 마지막이 아니야 이것은 시작에 불과해요.영원히 난 사랑합니다.


Why didn’t you tell me who Chae Young Shin is? Why did you say she was dead? What the hell have you done to us?!

Sailor Moon did not enter my life so much as consume it. I was eight, and in the space of a few weeks I learned all the attack names, bought the first two issues of the manga, went through three different understandings of how to pronounce “Takeuchi”, and developed a tiered list of my favorite characters.

I spent hours spelunking the MIDI-laden cave that was Geocities, learning the language of dub-versus-sub wars, exploring webrings, indulging in awful pidgin Japanese, and realizing that I was not actually the only person in the world that loved this show. I filled the drawer of my nightstand with printouts of art book pages (I never did anything with them, but they were the most beautiful things I had ever seen and I needed to possess them somehow). I scraped up a special outfit — a white turtleneck and blue pleated skirt, with my hair in pigtails — just to wear while watching the show.

Opinions crowded my head, the first ones I’d ever really developed on my own: on translation choices, best and worst story arcs, ideal romantic pairings. I didn’t just write Sailor Moon fanfiction — I wrote Sailor Moon poetry. It was, by far, the most vivid and vital part of those last few playground years.

Today, Sailor Moon is inescapable. There’s the new anime of course, and the new musicals, the merchandise, and the retranslation of the manga. But it’s the emblem of a wider renaissance as well, a resurgence of love for mahou shoujo, or magical girl anime and manga — a movement led by women well out of their childhood years.

A quick stroll through Tumblr reveals Sailor Moon cupcakes, punky Sailor Moon jackets, heartfelt essays about what the portrayal of lesbianism in Sailor Moon meant to the reader, dozens of artists working together to reanimate an episode of the anime, Sailor Moon nail art tutorials, cats named Luna, Beryl, Haruka and everything in between, hand-sculpted figurines, ornate embroidery projects, and an endless avalanche of fanart. Sailor Moon as an Adventure Time character. Sailor Moon cheekily clutching a Hitachi Magic Wand. Sailor Moon as a vicious biker chick. Sailor Moon protesting the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling.

Sailor Moon fans have not so much rediscovered their love for Naoko Takeuchi’s sword-and-sparkle epic as they have elected her queen mother of their imaginations and ultimate aspirational self. She is, simultaneously, symbol, cause, and leader.



every westallen scene ever (38/?)

i learnt a lot about myself when i was alone, that i didn’t really need anyone and i think losing you taught me that maybe i need to be strong enough for myself. maybe you were a lesson; to teach me that even if i lost the love of a man i could never really replace i gained the love of myself in the process. in the end i learnt that you could have thousands of friends that you go out on friday and saturday nights with but its about those friends who check up on you on those sunday mornings to make sure you didn’t drink too much and got home safe and those people who make sure you did good on that test you wrote last week. i took a look at my life and the people around me and realized i had no one like that so i dropped people who didn’t show me love in the way i wanted to be shown love. this is how i learnt about self love. firstly i lost you and lord does everyone know i grieved your loss in ways that no one would ever understand from crying, screaming and those 8 shots of vodka once a night at least twice a week but it was those smaller times where i’d be on the bus and our song would come on and id flinch just to change and grabbed my iPod to change the song as fast as i could or those times i went to pick up bread from the grocery store and i couldn’t have myself decide which one i wanted that made me think of how indecisive i always am but fuck i was so sure about you. i also lost friends and that taught me how it was okay to drop people when they make me feel less of who i am. i don’t need friends just for the sake of saying i have friends. i learnt that there is no use calling someone a friend if they only text you when they need someone or something. i learnt about self love when i dropped everyone who made me feel less of person and that made me grow and id rather stand proud of myself and be alone than stand with others hidden behind their shadows of what i am supposed to be just to i guess fit in.

you put me through hell but it taught me self love


A Message to Women:

you deserve better than to be called “pretty”
you deserve better than to get upset and go online to act petty.
you deserve better than to be on “hold”.
you deserve better than to hold onto someone who’s already let go.
you deserve better than to be held in convenience.

you deserve better than to keep your relationship “lowkey” because..
“someone might see”
someone “might ask questions”
and someone might wonder why someone like you would rather hang around a boy who wont commit when someone like them is ready to love you.
is ready to learn you.

ready to show you -
who you are.
paint you a picture of you through his eyes and convince you that you are indeed art.

show you the way he’s mesmerized the way your broken heart still beats
the way it flutters when whole eyes and yours meet
the way it silences to express its beat.
show you how much he realizes you need healing from this hurting.
i know you.
i know something about what you’ve been through.
i know some days feel like heavy weights and hearts with protection that you’ve failed to break through and i know what it’s like to put heart break on hold for the love of your life who forgot relationships take two.
i know he forgot to say “i love you, too”
i know he forgot to stay faithful.
i know you forgot about the time you promised yourself you’d do better but every time you try to leave something keeps pulling you back - telling you
this is the best you’ll ever have in life.
so you stay the night. - - - every night he misses you after remembering your head and how good it works.
and how good it feels to know no matter how bad it gets - you’ll always come back.
I know you.
and he does too.
we know the way your stomach drops at the thought of him loving someone better.
so he knows you wont search for better
and I know you deserve better.
I know you deserve better than to have your spirit bruised.
I know you deserve someone who empowers you.
I know just how beautiful you could be if only you could see your own value.
I know you.
you’re a collection of paradox’s
you’re a compilation of food for thought
you’re a woman - before all things.
you’re more a lover than a fighter - after all it seems..
you’re special.
and I know you know you deserve better than to settle.
