as for everyone else i'm sorry

Consider:

The vengeance narrative really only makes sense as a fictional construct where the idea of a Protagonist exists. 

If you reject the idea that you, as an individual, are inherently more important than anyone else - that you are the protagonist living in a world of NPCs - your concept of justice shifts dramatically. 

As soon as you consider the possibility that everyone else in the story - all of the people who aid and abet, all those who are hurt along the way - is as fully fleshed out and human as the main character, the revenge fantasy not only fails on moral grounds but also on the manner of logistics. 

After all: If every person who was wronged sought revenge, and every person who sustained collateral damage along the way also sought revenge, and so on and so forth, they would - to borrow a Gandhi quote - all end up blind. 

Considering that, the framework through which we consider justice should be shifted to focus on prevention rather than punishment. To be sure, those who do wrong should face consequences for their actions, but for a purely pragmatic purpose: one, two educate the offender so as to prevent future wrong-doing; two, to isolate the offender to mitigate possible harm. Moral arithmetic regarding “fairness” or “justice” is ultimately illogical and possibly actively harmful to the end goal of peace (or at least minimized harm). 

Got7 as types of princes

Mark: the hidden away prince. Had a curse placed on him when he was born. Sneaks out of the palace and uses a fake name to adventure around. Sounds really good when announcing royal proclamations.

JB: the cool prince. Appears to be scary and there’s rumors that he slayed a dragon when he was three. Is actually a sweetheart that bows to palace staff.

Jackson: the travelling prince. Speaks more languages than all their diplomats combined. Very involved in politics and often goes out to visit his citizens. Everyone has a crush on him.

Jinyoung: the scholarly prince. Has read everything in the royal library twice. Funny at royal balls and has the best manners. Doesn’t return babies he’s handed to kiss.

Youngjae: the soft prince. Really awkward about royal duties. Prefers to be in the gardens or music hall. Attracts woodland creatures.

BamBam: the pretty prince. Designers would kill to dress him. Has at least four closets. Throws great parties. If he pierces his ears, so does everyone else.

Yugyeom: the nice prince. Choreographed the latest ballroom dance. Sipped champagne once and got found in the dungeons. Cares a lot for his citizens and is honest in nation reports.

Truth or dare with the skating fam:
  • <p> <b>Yurio:</b> Hey Yuuri, I dare you to spend 1 hour with the person you hate the most in the closet.<p/><b>Yuuri:</b> *Stands up and leaves*<p/><b>Everyone Else:</b> Wait what-<p/><b>Yurio:</b> SHIT<p/></p>

i think a lot about how kaz brekker, this monster, this bastard of the barrel, this crook with dirtyhands…offered to give himself up to let everyone else go free. the odds would have been stacked against him yet he stubbornly stood by his choice and said, “i’m giving you a way out. take it.” i want to cry, this boy, he was e x p o s e d in crooked kingdom. coldhearted my ass.

-Coran will put the through the ringer and toss them into the open airlock
-mess with the space-father and you’ll be a victim of the space-slaughter

Kisses with meaning: Chest and Mitsunari

  • Mitsunari + Chest (possession)

He has ice in his veins.

So much of it bubbling beneath the surface it takes a moment for the bitterness to start flowing. It begins in his toes, undulating in waves across every crevice before splintering onto the road mapping his legs, cutting up and up until the cold freezes into a glacier, plonking down in his gut.

He needs it to happen a lot faster if he’s going to withstand the impact of your palm striking his cheek.

And there’s no doubt it’ll hurt. You’re frozen in that vast space between a second and a heartbeat, and Mitsunari doesn’t think he’s ever seen you so alive. Blazing. Torn between hell’s fury and the devil’s wrath. Arm jerked high and hand poised, ready to strike.

He’s prepared for it, despite the curdling in his pulse and the ice in his gut.

Don’t ever say that to me again.” And you tear away from him so fast, like a whip returning to its master, he feels the echo of a slap ringing out anyway. You can’t look at him, and the ice snaps and huffs as you stagger to his bookshelf, pitched forward, fingers etched too tight into the wood for purchase.

It’s all he hears, your breaths furious, rankling in his ears.

“Manju-girl—”

“Shut up. Don’t say a word.”

His breath shakes out of him too, once, twice, before you turn to look at him, red and puffy lining poison-black eyes. It’s the only part still savage when your entire face withers. He has but a beat to summon the ice again before you’ve stalked back, hands fisting into his sleeve.

“Listen to me, Lord Mitsunari. You can’t— you can’t say something like that without realising what it does to the people around you. It’s too cruel. We love you… Lord Hideyoshi loves you. I— I love you.” You gasp against the choke, swallowing, and every word has to be dragged out. “If I don’t see you barreling down the hallway with a book in your hand, my day doesn’t feel right.

“You are important and valuable and a part of this family. We would crumble without you. You don’t know how significant you are to all of us.” Your breath hitches, voice too shaky to go on. He wants to howl because he’s hurt you. “I need you to know that if you suddenly disappeared from this earth it would— it would—” Tears gather again though they don’t fall because girls like you don’t cry; strong girls, fierce girls, “—it would break my heart.”

In a broken rush of air you drop the world into his lap.

He doesn’t know what to do because he has ice in his veins.

So much of it bubbling beneath the surface it takes a moment for his heart to cry out a rhythm to the corners of his flesh. It starts in his feet, shooting out and pulsating so furiously it doesn’t see how his toes curl, cutting off the path and sending the ice hurtling head long into its first barrier and smashing little fractures all over. It back tracks in revulsion because the sensation is so foreign, crashing through the chambers of his veins up into his legs. The ascent is a rocky one, and along the way shards crack and hurl about, whittling the cold down before it reaches his gut.

Mitsunari can’t breathe.

His gut swallows the torrent and a glacier starts to form, a feeling so familiar to his bones it takes a moment longer before the cry reaches it and everything starts to spit and hiss and decompress, and his gut, wound so tight already, spits the ice back out because it no longer wants to be the sanctuary of so much fear. The ice weaves back into his veins and spindles out and out and, bypassing the heart altogether, funnels into his arms and down through his fingers, where it thinks it can make a mockery of how coiled his fists shake.

But Mitsunari can’t breathe.

And the ice shrieks against a blaze so thunderous it jerks back through the sensory paths and twists around his neck. Freezing and freezing.

He can’t breathe, he can’t breathe.

His mind steps in, his breath, short and stiff, steps in, his gut steps in, his toes and feet and arms and fingers step in, you step in, straight into his chest and they all clip and chip away at the stranglehold around his neck. The ice screams and chokes, spittles furiously, and it won’t let go because he is ice, he is nothing without the ice, he needs this ice.

It’s too much. He can’t breathe. It’s all too much.

Suddenly everything bursts. 

He can breathe.

Because he feels it, so soft and sweet, against his chest and it makes him want to crumple to the ground and cry because your lips flutter through the fabric to his heart, hushing and cooing the storm.

It starts in his toes then.

Seeping out in lazy flicks, burning and lighting the path and sizzling the blood in his veins. It caresses every nook and cranny, each dip in his muscles, until the aching pool of warmth settles into his gut, and he feels the holding and whispering tendrils of heat fanning out and out. It’s fire. Hot and bright, gentle and misunderstood. And it’s you as well, breathing a fever through his heart, melting the winter and roasting the shards, making it blaze forever and ever until his whole body thaws into you.

Your hands cradle him, and he sees red.

Everywhere. 

He has fire in his veins. 

It’s alive. He’s alive. It burns him.


‘Kisses with Meaning’ [Masterpost]

  • @frywen-babbles @dreamsinparadise Forgive me for not tagging you when I first posted, friends! Once I realised real life had called. Can I make up for it with some Mitsunari? 
  • Simon: *becomes a vampire*
  • Simon: nope nope nope nopenopenopenopenope lmao nope fuck this NOPE I'm cancelled it's over everyone pack up go home that's a no from me absolutely not bye bitches hasta la vista I'm exiting this dimension adios fuckers
  • Simon: *meets Raphael*
  • Simon: cool cool cool tight tight tight sign me the FUCK up yup I'm in I'm hip vamps for life fam yup yup yup I'm good crisis averted my depression is cured I'm reborn I'm on board with this now

I feel like magnus and alec encourage each other when one of them is being difficult or just a pain in the ass for other people. like I can imagine them sitting in a meeting and a clave member tries talking to magnus but is being extremely rude so magnus is like “alexander, did you hear something?” and alec barely hides his smirk and is just like “no babe, maybe it’s something from outside” “hmm maybe, it was certainly not the sound of a clave member being rude to the high warlock of brooklyn” “it couldn’t be, they wouldn’t dare. not after everything you do for them” and all the clave members are sitting there shook and unsure what to do or how to get magnus to cooperate with them.

or there’s times when jace is being super annoying and magnus and alec have just had enough and are like “darling would you mind if I turned your dear brother into a frog?” “no not at all, in fact make him a mouse. it’ll be funny to watch him run from the cats” “ooo I know, I’ll turn him into a stand for your weapons, you know how much I hate when you leave them lying around” “nah, jace would enjoy that too much. he’s always had a hard on for weapons” and jace is just like “tf alec, you’d really do that to your brother?” and alec just shrugs and smiles which cause jace to smile too.

the worst is when the whole squad goes out and both magnus and alec end up drunk and alec becomes outraged when clary says she’s the gayest one there like “how dare you? I am the gayest. magnus tell her” and magnus is like “I can confirm he is so gay. the best gay” “aw magnus, you’re the best bi” and they both go on about how “iconic” they are and everyone else is just like “chill, it was a joke” but they’re both too drunk and too wound up to care until they notice there’s a karaoke night going on and magnus turns to alec with wide eyes and alec’s just like “do it” and everyone’s like please no because they’ve heard magnus sing “don’t stop me now” by queen everytime he’s drunk but it’s too late, magnus is up there and alec’s drunkenly telling everyone “that’s my boyfriend” while cheering an equally drunk magnus on.

Every Bit of It: Part One

Soulmate AU: Everyone has a line that starts from their ring finger that goes to their heart, and in the line is spells out the very frst thoughts you have about your soulmate.


Tyrannus Basilton Pitch hates his line. It’s just like everyone else, but there is only one word repeated over and over and over again. “Wow.” Am I really not more creative than that? Whoever my soulmate is better be “wow” worthy otherwise I will be pissed off. Then again, I’m pissed off a lot.

I wonder what other people’s lines say. Some just say “They’re beautiful,” where others say “Those shoes are ugly as hell.” I think it’s funny, the variety of thoughts that people can have about someone they are truly destined for. Not that I believe all this shit. My friend Agatha doesn’t have a line. When she was younger she wanted to get a tattoo of one, just to make her look normal, but since then the tattooing of the lines have become illegal. I guess there have been too many people in Agatha’s position where they get lines and steal soulmates from other people. Agatha isn’t like that though. She just wanted a line, no words, to make her look normal.

Work today is slow as a bitch. Why does no one want coffee? Coffee is great. I am debating getting some when the door dings open. Two people walk in, but the sun from outside blocks my view of them.

“Honesty, Simon, do you really need to go to every single store in London to find these bloody scones? I want to go home,” a girl’s voice said.

“Yes, Penny. You know I am addicted to them.”

I rolled my eyes. Wow, I thought. Scones? Then I froze. I thought wow. Is that..?

Simon and Penny walked up to the counter. “Hi! Do you have scones?”

“Um, yeah, what kind do you want?” I asked him, movements slow in case he realized that maybe I was his soulmate.

“Sour cherry,” he said. And then he froze. “Give us a minute will you?”

He dragged the girl away and whispered to her. His hands were moved everywhere, he gestured to where his line is, and he blushed when he realized I was staring at him. I got the sour cherry scones for him, I didn’t know how much he wanted so I just gave him five since they are sold in bundles of five. I waited for them at the counter. Penny went and sat down and he walked back to the counter. Holy shit. He’s really cute.

He has bronze curls and blue eyes. His face is covered in freckles and little moles and it’s the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while.

“I have five scones for you, do you want more?” I ask him.

“Five is good, but I would like your number,” he replies. Damn, he’s good.

“Let me get that for you..?”

“Simon. My name is Simon “Your Soulmate” Snow.“ He actually used finger quotes around "Your Soulmate.” He smirked like hell when he did that. Why did I feel like he should never smirk?

“That’s smooth, Snow. That’s smooth,” I whispered as I was writing my number on his receipt. “Now, just because you are my soulmate doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay for these scones and my number. That’ll be 3.49.”

“Does that include or not include your phone number?” He asked, handing me the money.

“My number costs one date with you.” I answered, handing him the scones and my number. “I’m off in an hour.”

“I’ll wait for you here,” he winked and walked back to Penny, who was silently recording the entire encounter.

“Did you get it?” Snow whispered just a little too loud.

Penny smiled. “Every bit of it.”

I don’t think I hate my line anymore.

Your You neso is adorable, i love the >:) face that it she has o(≧▽≦)o. I was inspired to get one as well after your You birthday trip and I was wondering what size yours was? Sorry about the scrub question, I'm fairly new to nesos ( ̄▽ ̄*)ゞ

Aaah, don’t worry! I’m fairly new to nesos as well! You-chan is my first nesoberi and I’ve had her for less than a month :)

You-chan is flattered that you think she’s adorable (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)

She’s from the HJNN Summer Uniform set! HJNN stands for Hyper Jumbo Nesoberi Nuigurumi and refers to a specific size of neso — about 40cm in length and 20cm in height aka big enough to hug. Her head is even bigger than mine (:D)| ̄|_ They’ve been releasing one neso for this set every month for the past few months. All the first years and second years have already been released, I think… Dia? just came out, and Kanan and Mari haven’t been released yet.

As for buying a neso, I’m not sure where you’re located, but your best deal would be getting a neso from a UFO machine in Japan (bring someone who’s good with UFO machines to a game center with you and you can get one for real cheap! (•̀ ∀ •́)ﻭ✧). If you’re not in Japan, you’ll pretty much have to pay at least USD$40 to get one. There’s one left on Amazon for about USD$44 (shipping included) and two left on Amazon JP for ¥2950 (without shipping). Mandarake usually stocks nesos as well, but I’m pretty sure You is sold out by now (she came out waaaay back in December). Major cons usually have at least a few dealers who sell nesoberi, though You will sell out faster, and usually for a more expensive price because of her popularity. Yahoo! Auctions is also an option for buying nesos secondhand.

Nesoberi sizes can range from keychain-size to a whopping 50cm in length. There’s a nice guide to neso size here, if you’re curious!

I really want an OVA or a spinoff of Yuri!!! On Ice that focuses on Minami

and his progression as a skater and interactions with his idol - Katuski Yuuri. Can we talk about how under appreciated it is that Yuuri is basically Minami’s Viktor

then yuuri skates and Minami watches from the sidelines

^^LOOK AT VIKTOR’S FUCKING FACE HE’S SO DUMBFOUNDED ^^

and then he fanboys about the performance, and he’s supposed to be getting ready for his own performance and he can’t stop thinking about Yuuri

and then second he’s done his performance he goes to find Yuuri

and becomes the saddest pinecone ever because yuuri didn’t watch him skate

HE SKATED TO A SONG THAT YUURI ONCE PERFORMED AND MADE A MATCHING COSTUME IN HONOR OF IT

AND THEN HE YELLS AT YUURI AND TEARS UP BECAUSE YUURI SPEAKS POORLY ABOUT HIMSELF

LOOK AT HIS REACTION WHEN YUURI YELLS MOTIVATION TO HIM BEFORE HIS FREESKATE

FINALLY here we have Minami in Yuuri’s home with Yuuri’s family being the One True Leader of the Katsuki Yuuri Fan Club

Bonus: Minami refusing to cheer for Yuuri’s rival

Bonus Bonus: Minami seeing his OTP in person

People on twitter are already going "congrats to everyone involved in the show, all cast and crew". Emeraude tweeted about the win and some people are actually replying to her saying stuff like "congrats I'm so proud of you you're the perfect Izzy". When will they realize that this has nothing to do with the straight characters or the overall plot? This is about an interracial lgbt+ couple that's making history, no one else. Sorry I'm petty

PLEASE I KNOW I’ve seen those people lmao. esp @ emeraude of all people ?? pls. anyway i’m tired of people treating this like shadowhunters is winning against all odds of being a little freeform show like no this is about malec winning despite being an interracial couple featuring an actual actor of color (unlike some OTHER ships no names mentioned) because interracial lgbt+ couples are 1) rarely ever on tv 2) rarely ever BOTH the main characters and 3) rarely ever get any recognition or a fanbase.

this is really important for qpoc everywhere and it really shouldn’t be so casually erased. the only other person you should be congratulating aside from harry and matt is michael reisz.
