anyway can we just talk about the way

so no we can’t talk and I know that I know that I know that but my hands still shake when I think of you with her and my heart still aches when I think of you touching her.
so maybe I should block you so I can’t reach out because if I reached out you’d only push me back down because every card I’ve ever fuckin owned was in your hands and you still picked her so
now you’ve got her.
and it can’t be both ways, anyway. we can be civil and
act like we never talked way too extensively about fucking but
it’s not like we’re gonna be friends, you know?
it’s not like we can talk like we talked and maybe next time I’m drunk I’ll give you a call and I can talk and you can listen and act like you’re mad but maybe just this once you won’t be because
you miss how it was but then you’ll whisper that you have to go and when you hang up you’ll roll over and put your arm around her and
i’ll probably throw up on the side of the road again and
try to forget all about you when I sober up in a bed that never had you in it but still felt empty when you left.

Ruby Rose’s Letter

“Hey, sis.

I hope my letters have been reaching you and Dad. I know written stuff has never been super reliable, but… I guess it’s all we’ve got these days. Anyways, in case you haven’t been getting them, I want to say… I’m sorry for leaving the way I did. I know you told me it was a reckless idea, and after everything I’ve been through, I can definitely say you were right.

“It’s been hard, hard on all of us, and I’m not just talking about the monsters we’ve fought out here. Every step we made took us further and further away from the things we knew, and every morning, we woke up wondering if just over the next hill would be something good… or something terrible. It’s scary, not knowing what’s going to happen next. And the things we do know now - just how bad it can get - almost makes it all worse.

“You told me once that bad things just happen. You were angry when you said it, and I didn’t want to listen. But you were right; bad things do happen. They happen all the time… every day. Which is why I’m out here. To do whatever I can, wherever I can, and hopefully, do some good.

“We’ve all lost something. I’ve seen what loss can do to people. But if we gave up every time we lost, then we’d never be able to move forward. We’d never have a chance to see whatever beautiful things the future might have waiting for us. We’d never have the strength to change, whether it’s ourselves, or the world around us. And we’d never be there for other people, who one day, might be lost without us. This is what we were training for, Yang - to become Huntresses. To be the ones stand up, and do something about all the bad in the world… because there are plenty of people out there who are still lost, and even more who will try to gain everything they can from their sorrow.

“Believe me when I say I know it can feel impossible. Like every single day is a struggle against some unstoppable monster we can never hope to beat. But we have to try… if not for us, then for the people we’ve already… for the people we haven’t lost yet. 

“I miss you so much. I miss Weiss and Blake, too. But I think you’d all be proud to know I made it to Mistral. All of us did. And we even ran into Uncle Qrow along the way. He’s going to take us to see Professor Lionheart, the headmaster of Haven Academy. And he told us some things you’re going to want to hear - things I can’t trust will make it to you in this letter. But maybe if you joined us, he could tell you himself. With Beacon gone, they’ll need Dad at Signal more than ever. I know you need to focus on yourself before I can expect you to come out with me, but it sure would be great to get Team RWBY back together again.

“Until next time, your loving sister.” 

So, the Ghoul School gang is in a volleyball tournament against the boys from the other school.

This results in a lot of interesting things, such as forced perspective shots that makes Shaggy look tiny…

…bats hitting volleyballs so hard that they teleport straight through the net…

…and plenty of other fun frames.

However, mid-way through the game, we learn the boys are going to cheat to win! Oh noes!

They also talk about their cheating loudly, right by the net… so, wait, can all the people around not hear what they’re saying? I mean, they were talking to people all the way across the court at that volume before….

Whatever. Anyway, they decide to do said cheating via a physics-defying remote-controlled ball, which you’d think would raise some immediate eyebrows from the spectators.

Even without that, though… is it just me, or does this scheme seem way too easy to catch? 

He’s suspiciously holding the remote openly, on the court, in broad daylight, while talking loudly about how he’s cheating. Can no one see or hear him while he does this?

Or here, when he does it again?

Or here, when he does it yet again?

Or here, when he does it yet another time?!

I mean, sure, there’s willing suspension of disbelief and all, but this just seems a little silly. How can no one s–

…wait… is that a….



Now you’re just messing with me, aren’t you, Hanna-Barbera?

Can we talk for a sec about how Alex said it:

“The one part of my life that I’ve never been able to make perfect was dating. I just never really liked it. I don’t know, I mean, I tried, you know, I got asked out. I just, I never liked… being intimate. I don’t know, I thought maybe that’s just not the way that I was built. Just not my thing.”

My favorite thing about this is the word “intimate” bc it doesn’t mean just sex or making out. She was talking about dating. That requires emotional intimacy. I can’t talk for everyone in the community, but when I struggled with compulsory heterosexuality that’s what happened to me. I could never be close to guys, I could never ‘let them in’, and I most certainly couldn’t love them. And the more they showed their emotions the more uncomfortable I felt. And I think that’s what Alex talked about, not being able to feel that kind of emotional intimacy with men, and dating being an inconvenience instead of something that makes you happy. And then you think “I guess I just don’t like emotions and all that b.s.” But then you meet a girl and it’s like HOLY SHIT I want her to be my everything.

“Cause I know I don’t understand just how your love can do what no one else can. Got me lookn’ so crazy right now, your love got me lookin’ so crazy right now.”

Can we talk about the fact that this song define so much their relationship? Anyway, I really tried to draw bum in my art style but Koogi way to draw him is way much better than anything in this world <3 

ye chapter 19 had some effect on me

Please, do not repost my art. Ask first, I don’t bite

Ok but can we talk about how hardcore Maggie Sawyer is, like instead of a soft little ‘I’ll always be there for you’ she’s all “RIDE OR DIE” like woah slow down girl. She definitely used to rip her sleeves off and wear fingerless gloves. She totally had a heavy metal phase. I’m calling it now.

Anyway I love my hardcore daughter

So I heard...

That some of you fake fans have been out here, giving Kihyun crap about line distribution (as if he isn’t the main vocal, as if he doesn’t have the most well rounded voice in MX) and some of you called him a devil and or demon while on VLive?? Way to take a joke too far??

We all know I struggle™ with Kihyun, because he’s literally such a beautiful person and i don’t know the way he dances just, and can we talk about his visuals because I- aHEM- anyway, what I’m saying is just because Kihyun is really out here snatching lives doesn’t mean you take a joke between friends and shove it at him like that.

Learn your place. Learn your status. If I catch one of you uglies acting like this I will straight up report you. No joke. I’m not tolerating uglies in the fandom.

ive been seeing a lot of arafef on my dash lately so i’d just like to say: black arafef

consider: aradia’s always had a real disdain for highbloods. her entire moral alignment while she was alive is “bitch i do what i want.” meanwhile feferi is really just as arrogant as any of the other highbloods. we saw how she talks about lowbloods - she just sort of pities them (and not in the weird troll pity=love way that i don’t necessarily buy anyway). we saw thru the alpha trolls and how coddling she can get. they’d be at each others’ throats.

“[Joel] and I were just discussing this. We were having some drinks last night and we were talking about this exact notion. Ideally, really ideally, you want to get to a place where you can have creative control over the material you do, choices at least, anyway. And you want your choice of script and role. But do you really want your life to revolve around trying to maintain your privacy?”

“He and I were drinking at a bar and chatting about [his] experience [working with Johnny Depp on ‘Black Mass’]. And he was like - there is no way in hell he could sit with Johnny at a bar and have a drink. It would be a circus! I mean that’s a fucking nightmare. You’re in a bubble at that point. Would I want Johnny Depp’s career? Sure! But do I want all the trappings and all the stuff that comes with that? I don’t know. It’s a pretty serious trade off.”

Hey everyone! I want to do a photo project about weight. I feel like there’s this myth that all girls/women should weigh between 110-130 pounds to be “healthy” or “pretty” or “skinny” which i don’t think is true at all. i used to believe that because of what i hear from celebrities, but once me & my friends started talking about our weights i realized that some of my tiny skinny friends weighed 140/150 etc and as i’ve said before i weigh 200 which from the media you would think is HUGE but it’s really not.

anyways tl;dr i want to show that the way you look often has nothing to do with how much you weigh and we can be all different sizes and “skinny” or “healthy” or “fit” or “thick” at all different weights.

SO if you can, pleaseeeeee message me a picture of yourself (it could just be your face or your body, w.e. you want) holding a paper/sign that says your weight and/or your size. if you want to be anonymous you can blur out your face or w.e. you feel comfortable with.

thank you!!! xoxoxo

anonymous asked:

anyway, can we discuss how good melissa looked in last night's episode?!

she looked amazing, anon, and i’m not just talking about her attire (which was on point btw) or how easy on the eyes she is.

you know, melissa is a… rare talent. i think that’s the best way to put it. she’s so good that everytime she’s on screen it doesn’t feel like i’m watching an actor deliver a performance, it doesn’t even feel like she’s an actor at all – it feels like she is carol. carol, a woman who endured years of abuse and much like the proverbial phoenix rose from her own ashes. a woman who has discovered and embraced her strenghts but still can’t accept her own weaknesses. a woman who’s incredibly vulnerable yet a warrior through and through. a woman who doesn’t want any more blood on her hands but knows that, in the world they live in, no one’s hands are clean.

if you watch melissa closely in this last episode, her facial expressions, her whole demeanor are so revealing of the inner struggle carol is facing. her acting is just raw and effortless and it’s a pleasure to watch really.

I know we all love the “Chuuya had unrequited feelings for Dazai when they were partners” trope but also I would love to talk about the “Dazai was in love with Chuuya but Chuuya didn’t notice and wouldn’t have given a shit, mostly bc he was in love with Kajii, who treated him way better anyways” trope that I just invented right now

Dazai bragging about knowing Chuuya inside and out, better than anyone else does, but only really knowing the things that he needs to. He can read Chuuya’s expressions and can predict his attacks and knows what his footsteps and his heartbeat and his breathing sounds like, but he doesn’t know all of the little things that make Chuuya more than a mafioso.

Kajii, on the other hand, knows what Chuuya’s favorite color is and what his favorite brands of wine are and what gives him anxiety and what makes him happy. It’s not even because Chuuya tells him these things, either. It’s because he pays attention to Chuuya and the things that he does, his mannerisms and his actions and his tone of voice and his body language. And Dazai is incapable of noticing those things.

Why I Want an Even Season

Okay so like I don’t need to explain to you all why an Even season would be flipping awesome. But i’m gonna get super close and personal anyway, and tell you all why an Even season isn’t just something we should want, but something we need.

Mental illness is something super common. Most of us will go through a form of it sometime in our lives. it’s normal and it is something we can all get through. But unfortunately when we suffer through these dark times we feel like we are all alone in our feelings, that no one could possibly understand (it’s hard to understand it yourself) and that because you feel this way and nobody talks about it, it makes you feel strange and ashamed for not being ‘normal’ ‘happy’ and less difficult. In fact you begin to accept that there is no way you will ever not feel like this and that it’s impossible to feel good again. 

Especially as a teenager, dealing with a mental illness is the most terrifying, isolating and hardest thing to go through. 

I was 13 when I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. It consumed me to the point where I left school in year 7 and was homeschooled until I was brave, strong and hopeful enough to return to school in year 11. It was the scariest thing I had ever done and the worst part is that for 4 years I believed I wasn’t strong enough to live and fight. 

I would have given anything to have a character like Even on tv to show me that I wasn’t alone. To be in his head and feel and see the things that I also felt and know that if he could go to school while suffering like this, than maybe I could too. Maybe I could fight, and smile and love despite the dark times. Maybe I too deserved to live and you know what? Maybe I could. 

Season 3 has already begun introducing us to the fact that no one should be alone. We shouldn’t isolate ourselves and we should tell each other how we feel so we can try to understand the parts of us we thought could never be understood. 

Now it’s season 4′s turn to show us how we can still love ourselves despite the illness that makes us feel worthless. That with the right support from people you love, and treatment and hope and determination from yourself, you can still live a good hopeful life and achieve all of your dreams while showing your illness whose boss. 

I would really love to see Even showing us all that you can still live your life and fight everything that is telling you, you don’t deserve to. I want to see his journey, his thoughts, his dreams and his fears. 

Because I believe we will all see a bit of ourselves in them and be able to learn so much from Even and about the importance of hope and knowing we all deserve to live, love and be happy, despite everything that makes us feel like we don’t. 

We all matter. We all feel. and knowing that doesn’t make us weak. 

It makes us strong.

IZ Issue #17 Discussion - Part 2: “Selfish Human!”

O.K,  let’s start off with the fact that this issue begins with Zim dressed as a Girly Ranger, cute dress and all. Why isn’t this part one? How dare you question my arbitrary way of doing things!

I just love how good Zim is at fitting into certain circles. He’s such a good Girly Ranger that he already knows the “Girly Ranger 73 Rules of Conduct.” What a dedicated noodle.

Anyway, let’s talk about the reason Zim’s there in the first place:

This is in response to Dib saying: “To think I was just moments away from exposing you for the evil space-horror you really are!”

Can we take a moment to appreciate the irony of Zim calling Dib out for being selfish? If you’ve followed me long enough, you might recall what I’ve said in my Abducted Review about Zim being quick to call others out on faults he himself may have (the pot calls the kettle black). This is called  psychological projection, and Zim does it a lot. It’s part of his character, he tends to defend himself against his “not very good” qualities by denying that they exist, and attributing them to others. Denial is one of this fascinating little snot’s way of coping with the fact that he’s… not as great as he’d like to be

Anyway, Zim is actually right… kinda. It depends on how much Dib actually cares about his fellow humans in contrast to the glory he’d get if he actually succeeds in exposing Zim (the comic hints that his child-like mind is still simple enough to want to shower in that glory and be what every kid dreams of being: a hero). But that doesn’t change the fact that Zim was actually being self-less in this case. Let me remind you that this isn’t the first time Zim has been masquerading as a Girly Ranger. He was so close to stealing another box FOR GIR. He just called DIB out on being selfish for whining about not getting to bust his cover to the Girly Rangers, while he dressed up as a little girl, integrated himself into the group, and memorized their 73 rules of conduct, all to spoil Gir with a box of cookies so that he could keep him clean. What was that about Zim being unable to care about others beside himself? To say that Zim is completely self-absorbed would be a flanderization of his complex character.

So let’s end this with the fact that Zim’s method of getting his robot servant to obey him is by spoiling him. He’s like a frustrated parent, trying to bribe his kid with their favorite cookies so he can finally wash their clothes. Ain’t that sweet?

Always feel bad whenever I take a quiz or read an article online targeted at women cause I pass as a woman and am afab so that kind of stuff is still relevant to me, but I always feel like I'm invalidating my gender ://///

articles about women tend to be written in a cissexist way without regard for trans people anyway, like all those articles that are like “take care of yourselves girls!!” and then proceed to talk about vaginas for 5 pages. so i get what you mean and it kinda sucks that society still very much pushes trans people to the boundaries so they can pretend we don’t exist. so i get where you’re coming from - just be careful about associating yourself with women (like women’s spaces) if you are not a woman i guess?

Okay super fucking embarrassing but I don’t care ✋🏻 anyways; can we just talk about how miserable that girl in the first picture is? Like, I hated myself and everyone around me. Now? Shit, hello world! 👋🏻 People say that looks don’t matter and weight doesn’t matter. That’s all bullshit. People treat you differently. I mean maybe it’s the weight and maybe it’s the fact that no one wanted to approach me because I looked so damn miserable. 💁🏻 but either way, life is totally different. I’m happy, I’m healthy and I have a great out look on life. Fuck whoever still has a problem with the way I look, because I feel fabulous now 💁🏻 almost one year and 123 pounds later. Who would’ve known? 😁

Look guys I don’t care what you ship, but if you actually think Beth and Carol hated each other, there is clearly a problem.
Now I know there are ship wars so both of these beautiful women get a lot of hate and unfortunately there’s not much I can do about that, but you can’t tell me they didn’t love each other. Can we just talk about the way Carol smiled everytime she heard Beth sing or Beth standing up to the cops in Grady Memorial Hospital to save her friend?
You need another proof? Look at Carol’s face when she saw Beth getting killed. That’s not the face you make when your “enemy” dies, that’s the face you make when you lose a friend.
Anyway I loved their friendship very much and I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to see more of them.

reminder that there is a way to participate in trans activism at least without erasing homosexuality, lying about biology and confusing people (like saying a penis can be female), talking over women, shaming the female body, hijacking lesbianism from female homosexuals, redefining words/terms for your own personal gain, prioritizing males over females, etc. but i’m sure you all know that anyways. maybe, just maybe, this wouldn’t happen if it were actually about advocating for dysphoric people, but we all know it’s not.

anonymous asked:

lmao but who cares about polls that are just a way to hype, get visits and create ship wars? Bob is right there telling us that he thinks they're pushing the audience to think that way about Bellamy's feelings but he can't talk bc he knows where they're going!!! defending gina from blecho shippers!! saying that bellamy will find some happiness!!! This is a victory. We're being fed so well.

lol i know that’s what i said last night???


so i feel like we don’t talk enough about adam parrish being so all-consumingly attracted to ronan lynch that it becomes an actual Problem 

  • like, he stares at ronan so much. all the time. just his general existence is distracting. 
  • he’s pretty much given up on trying to pay attention to movies when ronan’s sitting so close next to him and he can look at him for as long as he pleases. his eyelashes and sharp cheekbones are way more interesting that any dumb action flick anyway, right.
  • he definitely watches him sleep a lot. because he looks so soft and peaceful and lovely in the morning light. and he tries to be ~sneaky about it but ronan always catches him somehow. he always denies it even though he knows it’s completely useless.
  • ronan doing mundane, domestic things around the house or sweet, adorable things like petting baby animals or playing with opal probably shouldn’t be so hot but he usually ends up pressed against a hard surface while adam kisses every part of him he can reach anyway.
  • he pretty much Combusts every time he comes to the barns and ronan’s all shirtless and sweaty and muscley and lifting heavy objects or actually operating some kind of power tool and he tries to act cool but it’s pretty much impossible to hide his heavy breathing and the lust in his eyes and the itch to touch.
  • except it happens around other people too. like, he gets lost in staring across the booth at ronan’s face and eyes and smile and totally spaces on whatever gansey’s trying to talk to him about and he says his name like three times before adam snaps out of it and just blinks at him and says “what” stupidly and everyone laughs because it’s super obvious what was occupying his thoughts and he goes pink all the way to the tips of his ears and ronan smirks but when the awkward moment passes he gives him a sympathetic look and squeezes his hand under the table.
  • and then it starts affecting his actual life. 
  • so adam’s good at compartmentalizing and it works for a while – he can usually turn off everything else in his brain and concentrate on school or work even when dire things are happening – but sometimes it just fails spectacularly. like that one time he gets called on in class and for the first time in his life, he doesn’t know the answer much less what the hell they were actually discussing in the first place because he was daydreaming about ronan’s lips and shoulders and tattoo and remembering touching him and kissing him and he’s pretty sure he was just staring blankly into space with a dopey smile on his face. and the class is honestly too surprised to even make fun of him (some of them are legitimately Concerned – damn, what’s wrong with parrish) but it’s still extremely embarrassing because he’s not one of those lovestruck teenagers who can’t focus in class because he can’t stop thinking about a boy, dammit (except he totally is, oops).
  • and then there are the nights when he just tosses and turns for a long time just out of sexual frustration because ronan’s not there and even if he were, he needs to sleep so they couldn’t do anything anyway and it’s just all-around frustrating and he probably ends up calling him at like 3am and telling him it’s all his fault and ronan just laughs at him and then gives him his best version of a genuine apology for being too hot to handle and adam starts laughing too because it’s ridiculous, his life is ridiculous, but he wouldn’t change anything about it right now.
  • so basically once adam starts touching him, he just doesn’t stop. and it probably gets them into some awkward situations. ronan jokes about him being handsy but he’s pretty much ascending to heaven. because adam’s hands. all over him. all the time. under his tank and tracing his tattoo and on his thighs and tucked into the back pockets of his jeans. always possessively holding his hand or whispering in his ear. playing footsie under the table at nino’s. basically sitting in his lap when they’re all at monmouth. falling asleep sprawled all over him in the backseat of the pig. making out whenever they can find a spare moment and a semi-secluded corner. gansey takes to covering his eyes whenever he walks into a room with the two of them in it.
  • college takes all the discipline and self-control he has and they have skype sex every so often and that helps release some of the tension but he still pretty much ends up jumping him in the car/before they get through the front door every time he comes back to the barns. ronan teases him about his uncontrollable thirst but he obviously loves it and adam doesn’t actually care one bit. because his boyfriend is ridiculously gorgeous and amazing and he’s all adam’s and he’s never going to stop wanting him so completely or intensely.
