i think the narrative should explore the fact that clary is valentine’s daughter.
by which i mean - clary is dangerously charismatic. even alec, who hated her and has been forced to pick up after her, becomes close to her in the end. clary has stomped on every tradition and rule he was raised with, endangered countless lives - but still in the end he forgives, thanks her for saving isabelle’s life when she’s the one who endangered it.
maybe it is jocelyn’s daughter that saves the little mage child. but it is valentines daughter that went marching to magnus’s in the first place. jocelyn went to magnus when she was ready to hide - clary went to him when she was ready to fight. and when she brings the vampires and werewolves together - that type of leadership and manipulation is valentine. jocelyn helped save the downworlders by running from valentine and stealing the cup - clary doesn’t run. from the beginning she doesn’t run.
she fights, but not alone. she draws people to her, like moths to a flame. even meliorn is impressed by her, grants her a favor he’s granted no other. she negotiates with vampires, with simon’s help yes, but on her own.
and speaking of simon - valentine turned his best friend into a werewolf, and clary turned hers into a vampire. granted he was trying to kill luke and clary was trying to save simon, but still. jocelyn left luke wounded in a barn to make his choice, but clary made simon’s choice for him.
valentine and clary act - jocelyn only ever reacts. jocelyn may be a fighter, but she’s not a leader. she’s a soldier. luke is a soldier. but valentine and clary are smart enough and charming enough and ruthless enough to be generals. clary is always convinced she’s doing the right thing - even when lives are in danger and people are getting hurt she thinks she’s making the best choice for everyone. and she can usually convince most of everyone that she’s right. this is dangerous.
she’s not the same kind of leader that valentine is now. valentine is hard and violent and makes you walk over coals for his approval. but once upon a time he did what clary did - was kind and charismatic and told people that he knew what was right, that by listening to him they would be saving the world. clary has been in this world a couple of months and already she draws her inner circle around her, already she has allies that no one else has ever had before.
people are right to be wary of clary for being valentine’s daughter, but not for the reasons they think. clary will die before she joins her father, but she has the potential to succeed where her father failed. clary doesn’t like the clave, doesn’t agree with the clave, and she is valentine’s daughter more than she is jocelyns. those who knew valentine must see all his best and most terrifying qualities shining out in her. she may succeed where her father failed, and if she decides the clave is doing more harm than good - what’s to stop her in leading her allies in tearing it to the ground?
she is joan of arc, she is julias caesar. people believe in her, are willing to fight and die with their worst enemies for her, break oaths to their queen for her.
the only way to get rid of people like her is to stab her 52 times in the senate or burn her in a holy fire. but then she becomes a martyr and then shes more dangerous dead than alive.
there is someone in the clave who’s seeing clary and is seething, panicking, because this little girl is her father’s daughter, and she has the potential to amass an army that will destroy them all.
clary is valentine’s daughter.
her enemies should fear her - including valentine himself.
This video has such a strong message. But really..imagine a world where being gay was the normal thing and being straight was the weird thing. Its the exact same now. I’m shamed to live in a society where being gay is banned in 13 states in the USA. You should be allowed to be the person you love regardless of their gender.
Here where I live, if you’re gay..we’ll you hug you & love you even more for coming out and being honest with the people around you.
Before Christmas, I was in religion class and we were talking about things we believe/not believe in& people said santa, tooth fairy etc. I turned around and said to my teacher gay marriage in beliefs. She said we’ll just put marriage for now, I asked why not gay marriage & and she came right up to my face & said these words exactly “God chose Adam & Eve for sex to be between a man and a woman not 2 men and 2 woman, i think its disgusting for 2 men or 2 woman to get married it should ’not be allowed at all”. The whole class was completely shocked at what she had just said. At this point I felt like screaming at her, I said to her “so if you daughter or son, cousins, brother or sister, aunt or uncle, came out saying they were gay, you’d disown them?”. She looked at me straight in the eyes and told me to get out of her classroom, I got up and said to her “You’re a horrible person, gay people should be allowed to get married and be with each other in every country of this world.”.That was the day I got detention for standing up for gay people, what she didn’t know was myself and 4 other girls in that class were bisexual/lesbian. I had told my principle what had happen and I got that teacher suspended from the school for 3 weeks for teaching us her beliefs, and not Gods.
EQUAL RIGHTS SHOULD BE ALLOWED, NOT MATTER RACE, RELIGION OR BELIEFS.
thanks for reading. x
Don’t let anyone get in your way and say ‘you can’t do it, you’re not smart enough, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not talented enough’. Because those people are just jaded shadows. Stay away from them.
There’s a lot of hate in the world right now. There always has been, but it seems to be running rampant right now, and I can’t tell if that’s because more people are paying attention to the news and more things are being reported or if it’s just a really terrible time for a lot of people right now. But either way, there are a lot of people that have to live with and are affected by this hate, and to you I want to say that I’m sorry and I love you.
Sorry’s don’t help, I know. “Keeping you in my thoughts” won’t help you deal with the loss of a loved one or the fear of being targeted because of your appearance. I’m not the easiest person to talk to, and I doubt there’s anything I’d be able to say to make you feel better if you did try to talk to me, but I’m here for you if you need me.
You’re strong. You’re beautiful/handsome/amazing. You matter. You can’t stop terrible people from doing terrible things, you may fear for your life based on decisions your government makes, and you may even have to fear celebrating with friends/family/your country because one person could decide to ruin it. But you can’t let that fear control you; you deserve all the happiness in the world and you shouldn’t let anyone keep you from achieving that. But please, stay safe, protect the people you love, and don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t worthy of the things you deserve, whether that be happiness, compassion, love, or respect.
Do you think Ouma would be the jealous type that whenever someone steals Saihara's attention from him or smth he gets child mode on?
Haha, I definitely think so, considering most of Chapter 4′s comic relief before everything hits the fan involves Ouma being undeniably jealous of how close Momota and Saihara are, as well as the fact that they’re able to trust each other implicitly.
Ouma tries to fudge the reasons for why he keeps getting in Momota’s way or saying things like “you should ditch Momota-chan and team up with me instead” by then saying things like “I won’t let anyone get in your way.”
And to some degree, it is true that the narrative has very intentionally been showing Momota and the entire rest of the group sort of getting more and more complacent in each investigation up through Chapter 4, because they just sort of expect Saihara to figure it out for them as their SHSL Detective. Ouma calling the rest of them a hindrance and telling Saihara that they’re getting in the way is, to some degree, actually well-intentioned, because it’s true that the rest of them aren’t even trying to think anymore, and it’s supposed to make Saihara and the player very uncomfortable.
…But it’s also just Ouma being a little shit, and extremely jealous and childish. In wanting all of Saihara’s attention he’s definitely not pleased when Saihara would rather go spend his time with other friends rather than trying to solve the Great Enigmatic Mystery that is Kokichi Ouma. And that’s essentially one of the things he gets called out on by Saihara at the end of Chapter 4′s trial, because this kind of behavior is only excusable for so long, and it’s true that as long as Ouma isn’t really trying to let anyone in, he’s just going to be alone in the end.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can and can’t be. You be yourself, become yourself. Don’t let anyone get in the way. This is your life and you cannot be confined by other people’s perception. Take control and love yourself.
I want to cosplay yoonbum really badly, but I don't really have the body type for it.
Anon, you should never have to feel that way. If you want to cosplay Yoon Bum, then you go for it, regardless of your body type or how you look. If anyone gives you shit for cosplaying a character you don’t look similar to, then fuck them. No one’s going to perfectly look like a 2D character.
This goes out to anyone: don’t let your physical appearance get in the way of having a good time and cosplaying.
I’ve been thinking about my life and all of
the mistakes that I’ve made – the ones that stay with me or the ones that I
regret are the ones that I made because of fear. For a long time I was afraid to be who I am
because I was taught by my parents that there’s something wrong with someone
like me – something offensive, something you will avoid, maybe even pity.
Something that you could never love.
My mom – she’s a fan of St. Thomas Aquinas
and she calls Pride a sin. And of all
the venal and moral sins St. Thomas saw pride as the queen of the seven deadly
sins. He saw it as the ultimate gateway
sin that would turn you quickly into a sinaholic. But hating isn’t a sin on that list. Neither is shame.
I was afraid of this parade because I
wanted so badly to be a part of it. So
today I’m marching for that part of me that was once too afraid to march and
for all the people who can’t march: the
people living lives like I did. Today I
march to remember that I’m not just a me. I’m also a we and we march with
Anonymous said to imagine-unicornys: Could you do a Hunter Clarington x reader one, where the reader is on the New Directions and so they have to sneak around in order to be together?
(not my gif)
Oh Hunter Clarington, where do you even begin…
It started out when the New Directions’ Nationals Trophy was stolen by The Warblers. Everyone thought that Sebastian was being an ass yet again and sent Blaine along with Sam on a mission to retrieve the trophy.
When they returned with the trophy in their hands, Blaine had informed everyone that Sebastian was no longer the captain of the Warblers and proceeded to show the glee members a photo of Hunter.
“He tried to entice me to join back the Warblers,” said Blaine.
“He looks straight up evil,” remarked Kitty.
“Screw that perfect jawline and dreamy eyes,” you thought. He was your type.
To hell with Glee Politics. You weren’t going to allow anyone to get in your way of hooking up with your ideal guys. High school period was when you were supposed to be young, wild and free.
When Blaine was busy gawking at Kurt who had returned from New York for a small visit, you took the opportunity to ‘borrow’ his cellphone and searched for Hunter’s number. Just as you expected, he indeed had it.
You took the liberty of texting Hunter, and to your surprise, he wasn’t an ass as he made himself to be in front of the New Directions. You went out with him for frequent coffee dates, of course without the knowledge of the New Directions members. You clicked, and you began casually dating.
“Remember, rehearsals on Sunday,” Mr Schue announced before the start of our Glee practice.
“I can’t make it,” you raised your arms and informed everyone. Sunday was when you were meeting Hunter. Everyone gave you skeptical looks.
“Why not?” Sam asked.
“I have church,” you lied.
“It’s uh, urgent. Tina could fill me in,” you added, hoping that your lie would work.
Mr Schue took a moment to consider before he finally agreed to excuse you from rehearsals.
Thank god your lies weren’t exposed.
“Y/N , you crazy girl,” Hunter smirked.
He lifted you up and pinned your body against the wall. He started planting soft kisses on your neck, making his way up to your cheeks. As he released his grips on your arms, you wrapped them around his neck and kissed him back.
Hunter, the first to pull away, wiped your lip gloss off his lips as both of you attempted to catch your breaths. He had been wanting to do that for a while now, and was glad that he did, until-
“I’m actually part of the New Directions,” you admitted.
“Sorry love, can you repeat that again? It sounded like you were saying that you were part of the New-”
“I’m part of the New Directions,” you repeated it again. Only this time, slower. To be honest, you felt tired of lying to Hunter. Sneaking around the Glee members was fine, but trying to pretend to be someone that you’re not, bad move.
“So you’re not home-schooled, you’re not in Hockey, and you certainly didn’t get my number from the newspaper,” Hunter let out a grunt as he plopped himself on the couch, trying to digest whatever that was happening.
“Nope, I got your number from Blaine, but none of the glee members know that I’m seeing you,” you clarified and bit your lip, not knowing what Hunter’s reaction was going to be.
He remained silent.
“Uh, I’m just gonna go now,” you could sense that he wasn’t happy, but hey, at least you got to kiss him.
“Wait,” he grabbed your arm firmly, preventing you from moving a step further.
“I want you on the winning side,” said Hunter as he stared intently into your eyes.
“I’m a girl, I can’t transfer to Dalton,” you replied.
“You could help me spy on them,” suggested Hunter. He would be even more confident of winning the New Directions once he had a spy.
“No. They are my friends,” you rejected.
“Maybe you should have thought of that when you came to me, love,” retorted Hunter. Who were you to enter his life and entertain him with full of lies?
“Which is why I’m leaving now. Good luck Hunter,” you said.
“I didn’t say you could go!” exclaimed Hunter as he pulled you towards him and pressed his lips on yours again, only this time it was more intense. You struggled to break free, but with those soft lips, you could only give in to him.
When he broke away from you, he sighed.
“I have a suggestion,” said Hunter.
“If it involves me trying to stab my friends in the back, answer’s still no,” you replied, crossing your arms.
“Why not you continue doing what you’re doing, sneak behind your friends, and I’ll treat as if your confession to being in New Directions never happened,” suggested Hunter.
“You- you’re willing to do that?” You covered my mouth, not believing Hunter’s words.
“Decide now before I change my mind,” Hunter closed his eyes and clenched his fist, unable to believe his decision.
“Answer’s yes,” you nodded and in the back of your mind, you were starting to think of every excuses you could make just so that you could see Hunter behind your friends.
Hello!<3 I wanted you to know that your blog is amazing, thank you for your hard work :-) I'd love to know Mikoto and Munakata (K project) + Kougami ( Psycho Pass) 's reaction if their s/o is kidnapped and how are they gonna save her? Please :-)
thank you so much ヽ(^◇^*)/ this made me smile a lot x
Mikoto would be pissed and when I say pissed, I mean really pissed. Just from one glance, it was obvious to everyone within a 200 metre radius of him, that he was pissed. The moment he has heard the news of your kidnapping and had had Anna find your location, he had been up and out of the doors of the bar, HOMRA following close behind. He’d arrive at your location and wouldn’t let anyone get in his way as he went to release you from your ties. He’d carry you out and leave HOMRA with the order to leave nothing behind.
As soon as the news of your kidnapping reached Munakata, he’d gather all the members of Scepter 4 in and begin to get all the information he could about the situation. While he would try to act calm about it, it was obvious to everyone that he was annoyed and even worried. After gathering the information that was needed, he’d set off with Scepter 4 to save, a dark look on his face. While he wasn’t one to act like the red clan, perhaps just this once he’d make sure there wasn’t anything left.
Kougami would set out to find you as soon as he was informed of your kidnapping. He’d set out with no real plan, choosing to ride around the city until he eventually gathered information on your kidnappers. Once he had found that information, he’d storm the place with no backup, taking down anyone who got in his way. When he’d finally found you, he’d take you into his arms and get you out of there and away from harms reach, not before making sure that everyone knew not to mess with you ever again of course.
Irene: puts shades on so she can scope out her competition. jk, she’s a goddess. she has no competition & therefore, no reason to be jealous
Wendy: starts to feel small & insignificant, watching that other, prettier girl talk to you
Seulgi: doesn’t like feeling this way, especially since you weren’t actually doing anything wrong. you were just being polite & talking to a pretty girl. so to ignore her feelings of jealousy, she starts dancing, which unintentionally or maybe intentionally ;) gets your attention 100% on her
Joy: watches that girl all over you & realizes she can’t just sit back and watch this. so she finds an excuse to come up to you, “jagi, are you ready to go? ~” she asks, smiling pointedly at the unwelcome guest
Yeri: finds it’s funny that anyone thinks they could possibly get in the way of your secure relationship
So to avoid confusion and to make things a bit more organized these are the prompts that have already been taken. Some have been requested and some I’ve decided to pair up because I think it’ll work better for that particular character, and because I already had an idea for that prompt + character.
These are the first round set of prompts, I might do another depending on how this goes.
Mac x Reader: 42. Care to explain why I got a phone call, which wasn’t from you by the way, saying you were in the hospital? (requested)
Barry x Reader:1. I’m so sorry, I should of knocked
Klaus x Reader:60.You don’t care who you hurt, 62. As long as you get your way, anyone else be damned
Mac x Reader: 24. So about last night? (this prompt is going to be used as a part 2 to Long Lost Daughter)
Brett x Reader: 27. If your done checking me out, we still have work to do (requested)
Kai x Reader:3. Son of a bitch!
Stefan x Reader: 57. I hear drinking alone isn’t always a great idea
Elijah x Reader:
72. Here let me help
Stiles x Reader:21. Don’t try and blame me for what you did, 49.
I waited and waited for you to realize that no-one is going to love you
like me. Imagine my disappointment when you never did (requested)
Kol x Reader: 26. You think I’m cute?, 52. You want to kiss me, I can see it
Isaac x Reader:22. I’m making you nervous aren’t I?
Theo x Reader:7. You’re so damn selfish, 12. Wipe that smirk off your face (requested)
My closest friend knows somethings up. I'm a trans boy and I haven't told her because I dont know how to say it. It's hard for me to open up because when I was younger I was told to keep my mouth shut and I've down that. My family is not going to be supportive. I'm scared that shell treat me different she's the only person I have. Help?
I would write a letter, you can get all your thoughts down on that paper without anyone interrupting you. This way your friend can read the letter, process it and have emotions then come back to you and talk.
There is always the risk she will treat you different but she probably knows something is up–like you said so this is going to come out eventually and better you tell her then her to find out from someone else or another way.
You can do it!! You got this! You will feel so much better after coming out and hopefully it will only bring you two closer.
