on the may 15th fansign, mental health, darkness, and hope

on May 15, 2015, during 화양연화 Pt. 1 I went to BTS’ fansign at Sinchon and had a conversation with Namjoon that I, at the time, chose not to reveal for personal reasons. at that time, because of that decision, there were a lot of people who criticized me—people accused me of saying something mean to him, accused me of hiding some secret relationship between us, called me a slut, etc. I didn’t say anything about it at the time because it seemed pointless, but now that 화양연화 has come to an end for real, and following the release of YOU NEVER WALK ALONE—plus, the upcoming 2 year anniversary of this extremely fateful conversation (lol)—I have decided to write about it, if only to explain a little of why I feel such a connection to the concept and so people will understand why I kept it private for so long.

I just want to go ahead and give people some warning: it’s not only a post about BTS. it’s a post about my life, and it contains a lot of sensitive material, like self-harm, suicidal ideation, and drug use. please bear that in mind if you decide to read it, I don’t want anyone to be upset by that content.

anonymous asked:

hello why do u think lena luthor has bpd (i don't disagree)

bpd is most often (not sure if it can be caused by genetic influences though i remember reading something about it?) caused by environmental influences in childhood such as neglect, abuse, loss, bullying - all of those can lead to someone developing bpd. for lena, from what we know about her past and from her relationship with her adopted mother and brother, she experienced neglect (both emotional and… physical? because she was adopted, regardless of the reason as a 4yo she was raised for a while in the foster system, even if she doesn’t remember much of it now, because she was too young, it could still leave long lasting effects). everything we know about her family life is that she never felt Good Enough to be a luthor, never felt loved by lillian, only ever felt cared about by lex who later turned his back on her (loss, possible emotional abuse by lillian)

so what we know about her past in canon (i’m not even talking headcanons just taking from what was on the show) is already enough to cause her to develop bpd. now what else makes me headcanon her with bpd?

one of the symptoms of bpd is impulsive and self destructive behaviour and despite not having much screentime so far we’ve seen lena putting her own life in danger multiple times

another symptom? fear of abandonment and intense and highly changeable moods, that’s what i saw watching the “be your own hero” scene from medusa. first she’s smiling and so happy to see kara and then she lashes out at her thinking kara will betray/abandon her, it can also be seen as splitting and black and white thinking (which are also symptoms of bpd)

it’s very likely that she has unstable sense of self (another bpd symptom) especially considering her complicated relationship with her adopted family and being a luthor

lastly, people with bpd often idealise others (that’s basically a direct result of black and white thinking) and from the way lena was talking about lex it seems to me that she was idealising him for a good portion of her life. people with bpd also usually have a “favourite person” which i think lex used to be and now it’s kara. favourite person is someone who is usually being idealised and/or imprinted on. it’s someone the emotions of a person with bpd most rely on, who they care about the most.

Written for NurseyDex Week Day 2: Bedsharing and Room Sharing

Nursey/Dex Week: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7

(Read on AO3)

Nursey is standing in the middle of the room staring at the box that just came in from IKEA. When they had argued about furnishing their new shared room, he had told Dex a million times that he could be trusted with the simple task of ordering them bunk beds. Only an idiot could screw it up.

Derek Malik Nurse was that idiot.

Somehow the bunk beds he had ordered were transformed into a queen sized bed, that was flatpacked and staring Nursey right in the face. Dex was going to kill him.

Grabbing his phone, the D-man dials the customer care number he found online and begins the waiting process to speak to a human, pacing the room as he waits. He has one day before Dex comes - he can totally fix this. Right?

An hour later, Derek is finally on the line with a human, being informed that while he could return the queen bed today, he’d have to wait two months to have the model he wanted delivered - it was on backorder and the IKEA outside of Boston was all out of stock. Hanging up, he begins to bang his head against the wall, realizing he was screwed. Better to get this over with now.

“What do you need, Nurse, that can’t wait until tomorrow?” Dex asks as he answers the call.

“So you know how I told you only an idiot could screw up a bed order? I’m that idiot,” he starts, explaining to his fellow d-man the mix up.

“But I’ll totally get an air mattress and sleep in the living room until the bunks can come in,” he assures the redhead over the line, totally hearing the other man mentally counting to ten.

“We’ve shared a bed on roadies, we can share a bed for a few months. Just try to assemble the damn thing without killing yourself, alright?” Dex finally answers, sounding exasperated.

“Umm…I’ll get Chowder to help.”

“Brilliant idea, Nursey,” he mumbles, before hanging up the phone.

Zero Waste Hygiene Update

I have tried a bunch of new zero waste hygiene options and would like to share them with you:

Hair washing:

My #1 recommendation for this is to buy a shampoo bar from Lush. They are a little pricey ($9-$12), but last long, leave no residue, come in various scents and target different hair needs, and leave your hair soft. The only hair product I use is one of these bars. 

I used to use a shampoo & conditioner bar from Whole Foods (only $2), but I found it left a residue in my hair and doesn’t leave it feeling as nice as the Lush bar. 

The other option, for those of you who are brave, is to use baking soda and then an apple cider vinegar rinse. This is the “no poo” option. I haven’t tried this personally, but have heard good things. 

Hair spray: 

I used to make homemade hairspray out of lemon and vodka (the recipe can be found on my blog) but now find I don’t really need it (though I frequently curl my hair). 


The options are almost limitless here. I find rubbing a little bit of coconut oil on your underarms and then following with a 50/50 mix of baking soda and corn starch works very well. The coconut oil keeps the baking soda from causing irritation. 

Another option is to buy an all-natural spray on deodorant in a reusable glass bottle. This is good if you want a scented deodorant. 

Lush has many deodorant options like bar and liquid deodorant. They tend to be pricey, but might be worth a try if these other options don’t appeal to you. 

You could also buy a crystal deodorant rock, which I haven’t tried but have heard works well. 

Make-up removal:

Coconut oil on a cloth or reusable cotton pad works the best. 

Feminine Hygiene: 

Menstrual cups are an option that many women rave about once they try one. 

Cloth pads are another great option. I recently tried Party in my Pants and would definitely recommend them. 


Invest in a safety razor! They are a bit pricey (and seem a tiny bit scary) so I haven’t bought one yet. I’m working on it, though. 

Use a soap that really lathers. 

Hope these suggestions are helpful!

This speech was everything. Jackson freaking Wang. The man with deep words. So pure with so much love. He would make an excellent public speaker. Jackson is the type of person who leaves long lasting impressions on you whether you’re a kpop fan or not. He’s just that amazing. He is constantly worried about everyone else even though he should worry more for himself. I have never been such a proud fan in my life of anyone. But this group, this man, I will stick by them til the end and continue to support them. Thank you for everything you do Jackson. Thank you for coming to America to be with your international fans. We love you Jackson, we love you GOT7!

CR: To owner this video is not mine

I repost this every July 4th because I’m not sure there is anything that says U.S.A. better than a postcard of Wayne Newton punching an American eagle. This was acquired at a Newton concert in Pittsburgh circa 1990 that my roommate and I attended using tickets that were given away by Carnegie Mellon University’s radio station. We each won a pair and went downtown to sell them outside of the show. There were no takers, however, so we decided to simply attend.

We did not last very long. After leaving the show, we gave one of our extra tickets for a neighboring seat to an extremely enthusiastic homeless man with grease paint under his eyes, who appeared to be under the illusion that he played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was thrilled for the opportunity to see the concert. I hope he made it an unforgettable experience for the awful couple sitting two seats away from us that yelled at a young girl with Down Syndrome to sit down because, in her excitement, she was blocking a man’s view of the eagle-punching Vegas performer.

Prompt: “I might have had a few shots.” @kingarthurscat

It had been too long since your last shore leave, and somehow Jim knew exactly what his stir-crazy crew needed: a week on Risa. More than the parties that were promised, you were looking forward to shopping, and connecting with fiancé, who’d assured you she was just as excited to see you as you were to see her.

“I have super exciting news, Y/N!” Alana had exclaimed over the comm link when you’d told her about leave.

“I can’t wait to see you.” You resisted touching the screen, but just barely. Maybe this would be the shore leave when you’d finally convince her to just elope already. You were practically floating through the last few days journey to Risa, you were so eager to start your leave.

Uhura was the first to comment on it. “You sure the gravity is working properly, Scotty?” She asked the engineer when you came bouncing into the commissary for lunch the day before docking. “Because it would seem Y/N is having an issue with the floats.” She winked in your direction and gestured to the seat beside her.

Now, we live in a society where an indoctrinated mob will actively endeavor to slander you, with the intent of destroying your livelihood, and by extension your life, and where the justice system has been recorded being abused to that end.

Yes, in our society, you’re expected to kill yourself for wrongthink.

See how deep and true their so called beliefs really are when tested with repercussions that will leave long lasting scars on their day to day life …….respond with the tools that the modern world provides us with. A fight is a fight and you gotta know when your back is up against a wall and when to strike first rather than make excuses to prolong inaction. By the time this agenda slowly encroaches upon people’s comfy little lives it will be too far gone and the chance to defend our views will have disappeared, even the uninterested bystanders will realize the folly of their willingness to fester in blissful ignorance. Do we really still think that talking and debating is still a worthwhile practice in these times? That period of discussion has been and gone, we know just by looking at everyday occurrences that there was only ever one intended direction for us and we are already well underway on our journey to hell while Zamyatin, Huxley and Orwell mutter of how we had been warned.

Also a society where Tommy Robinson gets hounded out of a Cambridgeshire pub by the police for political reasons, having committed no crime.   Fucking disgusting.

Canadian Star Chamber Extra Judicial HRC used by Islamists to silence all criticism of Islam in Canada. They have more powers than ordinary courts and there virtually is no defense or rule of law for the accused. Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant WERE put on trial and after that ordinary Canadians dare not raise a peep in public. They haven’t come after the anonymous youtube commenters … YET.

Don’t you have an RFID injected into your arm. Huh. Don’t worry they will get round to you. You know that the FBI is reading people’s facebook pages and going to their homes and arresting them if they criticize Obama. (and off to either jail of the loony bin on trumped up charges). And that the Dems release names, addresses , businesses of those who join political movements that oppose their agendas. resulting in firings,  and SJW  harassments at home and/or businesses. ad the 3 AM kick in your door and shoot you is still going on in many cities, and in one State  they did Stalinist home raids on opposition party movements threatening everyone with incarceration if they told about it. (They wouldn’t even let one kid phone his parents and threatened him if he told anyone at school about  it).

I can list about four or five instances off the top of my head in which the SJW members went after anti-SJW people’s jobs, accused them of criminal activity and at least one case in which they tried sending someone to prison. If you can list similar examples from the other side, by all means: I’m all ears.

Saying “[Person] is a misogynist racist neonazi” is slander. Not only does it impune your character in an absolutely baseless manner that is meant not to address any argument you make, but to simply make one into persona non grata… But it is also an accusation of things that are CRIMINAL in many places. Actual racism, sexism, and nazi support are criminal offenses in many countries. And this is the methods and tactics that progressive/regressive leftist, feminists, lgbtq mafia, sjws, political correct enforcers, speech and thought police, extremists use to silence any and all counter opinions. Basically they are anti-diversity of opinions, anti-equality of different beliefs. And are blatantly and completely authoritarian.

When you have to watch what political speech you say because someone will contact your company, calling you a racist, bigot, sexist, or the like in order to get you fired, you are living in a culture where an indoctrinated mob will slander you.

Dan loves autumn. He loves the grey sky hugging the London skyline and he loves sitting on a park bench in Kensington Gardens and watching the trees change colours. He goes there nearly every day for an hour or two, wrapped in a warm coat, and witnesses the leaves turn from soft and dark green to yellow, sprinkled with red. They are cosy colours and remind him of fire and warmth. When Dan looks at the leaves on the branches of trees, he doesn’t feel the chill in the air.

anonymous asked:

Here's a prompt: Sara Lance comes to Earth 38 to check everything out. She makes a plan with Lena to make Kara jealous and realize she wants Lena.

Thanks for the prompt, it was fun!

Kara watches with a scowl, her brows furrowed as Sara laughs at something Lena says, the blonde’s hands brushing along the taller woman’s neck before Sara leans in to whisper something into her ear.

How had this happened? She had introduced Lena to Sara a few hours ago before she was called away for a bank heist. They hadn’t been this…touchy when Kara had left them earlier, and, if she was being honest, she was kind of jealous that Sara was able to get Lena flustered so quickly - it had taken Kara six months. And it hadn’t been Kara - at least not in that moment - it had been Supergirl.

Kara was snapped out of her thoughts at the sound of the other two woman giggling, their shoulders brushing as they leaned against each other. Kara grumbled underneath her breath as she debated on whether or not she should use her super hearing to listen in on what they were saying.

“Kara!” Kara turns her head sharply, looking at her sister with wide eyes. Alex gives her an incredulous look while Maggie looked at her with a smirk playing on her face, her arms crossed against her chest. Kara looks away as a blush creeps up her neck and onto her cheeks. “What is wrong with you? Are you okay?”

“I’m fine.” Kara mumbles underneath her breath, earning her a small scoff from her sister, and a snicker from Maggie.

“You’re definitely not fine, little Danvers.” Maggie says, smoothing out the blue prints on the table - they had been in the middle of a briefing, trying to clue in Lena on what their plan was to trap a group of time pirates in a walk in freezer full of test tubes with weird chemicals in them when Lena had to step away to take a call. 

Kara looks back over her shoulder, the two other women now, somehow, closer. She turns back with a pout on her lips as she looks almost pleadingly at her sister. “It’s not fair.” Kara whines, remembering to keep her voice low enough so the other women don’t over hear her.

“I’m sorry, Kara,” Alex says, frowning as she looks over at Lena and Sara. 

“Really guys?” Maggie laughs, dropping her hands as she unconsciously moves closer to Alex, “they’re obviously trying to make you jealous.”

“What!?” Kara and Alex turn to look at her with wide eyes as they stare at her apprehensively.

Alex crosses her arms and looks at Maggie with an arched eyebrow, “how could you possibly know that?”

“I have really good gaydar.” Maggie says with a haughty look, wrapping her arm around Alex’s waist, chuckling as Alex looks at her with doubt written all over her face while Kara looks impressed. Maggie only waits a few seconds before she gives in and tells them the truth, lowering her voice, “and I might have overheard them say they wanted to make Kara jealous.”

“Maggie,” Alex berates, pushing her shoulder slightly as she rolls her eyes.

“What?” Maggie says with a shrug, “I thought it would be funny to see Kara jealous. God knows how long Lena’s been trying to get her to make a move.”

“What!?” Kara is the only one that turns to look at her again, her eyes wide before she turns back to stare over at Lena and Sara, the blonde still making conversation as Lena seems to be listening intently to what she was saying.

“Okay, even I noticed that,” Alex says with a scoff, “and I’m a baby gay or whatever.” Alex snickers, waving her hand in the air as if to wave the thought away before she turns to a beaming Maggie, dimples on full display.

“Are you eavesdropping on their conversation?” Maggie says, arching an eyebrow as Kara seems to blush, turning to face them again before she shakes her head slowly.

Kara sighs before she nods her head. “Yeah.”

“Well what are they saying?” Alex asked, an eager Maggie nodding beside her as they both look at Kara expectantly.

“I-” Kara opens her mouth, about to deny ever listening to someone else’s conversation, but her sister’s looking at her expectantly with an indignant look. “Okay!”

“If it ever doesn’t work out with Kara,” Sara says, inching closer to the taller woman, “I’m just a call away.”

Kara watches as Lena seems to blush again. How does Sara even do that?

“Well, I think she’s literally traveled through time, so I’m guessing practice?” Maggie answers and Kara realizes that she had spoken her thoughts.

“I think she has more game than you do, Mags.” Alex lets out, her voice holding a certain twinge of admiration.

“Shove it, Danvers.” Maggie says with a half-hearted glare. Alex leans against Maggie as she chuckles, the other woman’s arm tugging her closer.

“Guys, I’m trying to listen, stop being gross.” Kara grumbles.

“Thank you, Sara,” Lena says, taking a seat in her chair, a warm small smile on her face as she watches blue eyes light up. “If I’m right, I do believe Kara is listening in right now.”

Kara jumps as both Lena and Sara turn to look at her, arched eyebrows and expectant blue eyes. Kara gulps as she hears Alex and Maggie snicker behind her. She waves and lets a small chuckle escape from her lips as Sara walks closer.

Sara smiles at her as she gets closer, stopping a few feet away. “You’re one lucky girl, Kara.”

Kara ducks her head as she feels the heat rise from her chest. Kara’s left speechless, only nodding her head in gratitude over at Sara before the other blonde woman goes to join her sister and Maggie while she walks over to Lena.

“I’m sorry for listening - I know I shouldn’t have - it’s a clear violation of someone’s pri-” 

Kara gets stopped when Lena stands and connects their lips in a firm kiss, her hands coming to sit gingerly on Kara’s hips. The kiss doesn’t last long, but it leave Kara breathless, a blush on her cheeks, her heart beating wildly against her chest as her stomach curls with joy and relief.

“Go on a date with me?” Kara asks when she finds her words, starring into blue eyes as red lips curl and silky black strands bounce when Lena nods her head, a small chuckle escaping her lips. They both flush as they hear the three other woman in the room make catcalls, laughing as they tease them. Kara just shakes her head before she turns back towards Lena, melding their lips together, her fingers tangling in black strands, tugging her closer.

“Gross.” Kara hears Alex say and she can’t help but laugh against Lena’s lips. She’ll need to thanks Sara later and remind her Lena’s taken.

anonymous asked:

Can you analyze the Astrid/Heather relationship. Some fans like it, others hate it.

Yes! I would absolutely love to talk about the relationship between Astrid and Heather! It is one thing that I personally really enjoy. I hope that even those who are not huge platonic Heatstrid fans can at least appreciate the depth of this interaction. It is short - shown only in two episodes - but there is so very much to talk about and enjoy.

So here comes another long analysis from Race to the Edge. :)

Where They Left Off

Astrid and Heather had about the exact opposite of bonding time the last time they were together. In fact, this last time they saw one another was when they met, and first time meetings are known to leave long lasting impressions. The fact Heather and Astrid last interacted when Heather chose to double cross the Hooligans means that they could have parted ways and had negative impressions of one another cement in their minds - especially for Astrid. Astrid could have remembered Heather for years as that one irritating girl who hogged Hiccup, snatched Stormfly, and tried to betray them to the Outcasts.

Their parting, however, factors into how Heather and Astrid remember one another. They left on a very good note. Astrid willingly saved the lives of Heather’s foster parents. Heather responded by apologizing for her prior wayward actions, thanking the Hooligans for their kindness, and giving Astrid a big hug. Therefore, Heather parts ways with Astrid thinking gratefully about how that girl saved her family. And Astrid parts ways with Heather thinking that this girl is not so bad after all.

I still did wonder - before watching “Have Dragons Will Travel” - how Astrid would respond to Heather’s return. i could see it go well or poorly. It all just depended on how Heather showed herself again and how Astrid’s memories solidified and morphed over the years.

Instant Connection

The way in which Heather reappears actually helps form a bond. Astrid is angry along with the others that Heather essentially captured them to “protect” them from her enemies. At the same time, though, it builds respect within Astrid. She mentions that Heather using chicken to lure in Stormfly “brings back memories;” Astrid is impressed despite herself that this young woman so resourcefully outmaneuvers Astrid. Not everyone can do that, after all, especially not by using dragon expertise.

And when Heather is brought to the youths’ fort on Dragon’s Edge, one of the first things she does is shove Snotlout away. He begins hitting on her, she does not tolerate that, so she pushes him out of her way, allowing Astrid to trip him. This is something Astrid absolutely can get behind - a woman who does not let Snotlout get away with his annoying flirtations! While Snotlout mopes on the floor, the two women fist bump, celebrating how they spontaneously worked together to literally bring this cocky man down.

Heather then begins a long dialogue. She is seen to be edgier, more intense, than her childhood self. Hiccup finds this change in Heather alarming and unexpected. Astrid adores it. Heather, by demonstrating herself as a far more aggressive individual, captures Astrid’s interest wholeheartedly. Her stark difference from her old self disturbs Hiccup, but it is one key manner which helps Astrid form a bond with her.

The fact she again knocks Snotlout down by having Windshear demonstrate her power on him also doesn’t hurt.

So here Astrid is not seeing a Heather who acts without spine, fulfilling the demands of the Outcasts desperately to survive. Astrid is seeing a woman with spine who can stand up for herself! This helps her push old unpleasant memories of Heather out of her mind and embrace this new awesome warrioress anew. Astrid is ecstatic to encounter another lady who shares her love for axes and female power. Exuberantly, Astrid pulls out her sword and charges Heather for a fun spar; she wants to see what Heather is capable of immediately.

The circumstances in which Heather appear, then, are conducive to forming an instant connection between her and Astrid. Heather pushes aside Snotlout’s flirtations in a way to which Astrid can both relate and respect. Heather proves herself to be a competent fighter and emblem of how powerful women can be. No wonder Astrid jumps on the opportunity to lead Heather away for one-on-one “girl time”. She sympathetically knows it would relieve Heather to leave Ruffnut and Snotlout’s pressing interest in her and her dragon… and it also allows her to have some enjoyable solo time with this awesome woman.

Building Bonds

The scene between Heather and Astrid practicing axe-throwing is one I adore and talk about elsewhere, too. Here is a perfect moment for these two women to be themselves. It’s girl time. Frankly, we viewers have never seen Astrid enjoy herself with “girl time,” being as almost all her interactions exclusively have been with Hiccup or the gang as a whole.

This is possibly something Astrid does not get a lot of, considering she is not someone who shares much of interest with Ruffnut, her other main female peer. And Heather most certainly has not gotten girl time - or friendship bonding time with anyone! - recently. Her life has been one of solitude lately. Consequently, this moment between Heather and Astrid feels incredibly refreshing for them both, allowing them some socialization time of a type they have been lacking.

This is really fun girl time for them - they get to show off their fighting moves to one another! This sits right at the core of Astrid’s being. She is a warrioress through and through, the top of her class, and possibly a bit of a one-of-a-kind in her peer group. Now she has met someone else who is just as bold and butt kicking as she is, who can relate to her on the topic of being a powerful, talented Viking woman. It is something she never knew she needed until now.

They learn from one another here. They aren’t just swinging sharp blades. They’re thinking of fighting from a whole new perspective, talking about whether it is better to fight close quarters staring the enemy down, or if the element of surprise springs a better advantage. Heather shows off her unique weapon with the two axe heads. This sort of activity is beautiful for building bonds. They get to see what the other loves, build off one another, and learn how the other thinks fighting.

And at the same time they can chat about other subjects, too. They can converse about anything and everything while throwing around their weapons.

Based upon my personal experience growing up, the topic of “boys” is one that happens pretty frequently when young women are by themselves, especially if everyone is straight. But it is also a type of conversation that delves into one’s heart. Astrid and Heather are talking about something that is very personal and exposing. Yet the conversation goes well, especially when Heather admits she finds Fishlegs cute and funny. Heather is comfortable enough to open herself and her deep feelings up to Astrid… and Astrid responds to the gesture well. She lightly teases Heather about it but does not smack her down for her crush.

Consequently, the activities and the conversations allow them to really become personal with each other. They become close friends fast because of how they relate and what Heather entrusts to Astrid. Trust is formed by showing Astrid where she is vulnerable.

The relationship just expands out from there. Astrid and Heather go off doing amazing stunts together, jumping off cliffs one another in some crazy thrill seeking adventures. They are creating distinct memories… yet another way to build closer bonds.

When Friends Let You Down

Astrid and Heather are in the perfect time of their lives to build a rapid but deep friendship. Astrid finds immediate connection with another axe-wielding lady, while Heather has been lonesome. You can see in her eyes an excited glow when they are running beside one another toward the cliff side. She is feeling amazed and fulfilled, receiving companionship for the first time in years.

So Heather becomes extremely emotionally attached to Astrid fast. She is unstable and lonely; Astrid is a fulfillment of a big hole in her heart.

Heather then hears from Johann about an opportunity to attack Dagur and bring him down. Taking revenge against Dagur is her number one priority in life. The thing is, Heather’s idea is far from wise. It is reckless, dangerous, and foolish. All the Hairy Hooligans on Dragon’s Edge recognize that instantly and warn Heather against going after Dagur. Astrid herself voices concern that Heather should not go out. 

Heather feels incredibly hurt and betrayed that Astrid shoots down her plan of action. She accuses Astrid of lying about “having her back” as a friend. She had hoped that, now that she had someone by her side, she would not have to go after Dagur alone. 

But the point of the matter is… Astrid does the right thing as a friend. She protects her companion by warning her the idea is dangerous and foolhardy. Heather, though, at this unstable and lonely moment of her life, finds anyone countering her ideas antagonistic. Heather cannot understand that part of a friendship involves blocking each other from making stupid choices. She is so passionate about killing Dagur that, in the middle of her emotions, she becomes angry at Astrid. The fact they have not been together long also means that Heather does not yet know how to respond when Astrid tries to shoot her ideas now.

Unfortunately Astrid bends under the pressure of Heather’s indignation. She feels sorry and guilty for how Heather feels betrayed. She and her friends compromise and decide to go on a capture mission. Not the wisest choice, but she’s doing it sympathetically for a friend.

Premature Departure

Astrid is someone who frequently helps the people she loves by letting them go forward with their own decisions. She supports them and stands beside them even if she thinks they are not going the right way. The final fight with Heather and Astrid against the Berserkers shows them at great morale, saying, “two axes are better than one.”

Then Heather changes her mind about it being a capture mission. It is somewhat hypocritical. She gets upset when Astrid goes against her wishes before, thinking Astrid is breaking a promise about having her back… but now Heather is going against her promises by attempting to kill Dagur. Astrid warns Heather against killing Dagur, but she is beyond listening to her friend now, revenge the very center of her mind. Only Hiccup’s intervention prevents Heather from ending Dagur then and there.

Hiccup’s news rocks Heather’s world. She is shocked and pained to learn she and Dagur are related. She probably also realizes she disregarded Astrid’s warnings during the “capture” mission; Heather is starting to cognize how recklessly bloodthirsty she has been. She knows she needs to step back and reevaluate her life.

Astrid encourages Heather to stay with the others at Dragon’s Edge. She will still help Heather with her problems even after the failed capture mission and Heather yet again going against others’ desires. Heather realizes Astrid’s sincerity and commendable loyalty, making it only worse that she feels the need to part. She says she feels sick of being lonely… but she nevertheless needs time alone to sort situations out.

The time together was brief, which makes it more painful for them to part.

It will be interesting to see if Heather manages to sort things out and what that will mean for their relationship. She still has a far ways to go, and being apart from Astrid has just as great a chance of hurting as helping her.

Astrid, on her end, is saddened to see Heather go, but she parts with better appreciation for what she already has. With a bit more grateful and recognition, she tells Hiccup she is thankful she still has him.

Sorry for the late response, hope you like it  


stressed out AF, he’s supporting you all the way, but he can’t help but think about all the skinship the guy is contracted to do. he’s not worried about your mind being swayed but rather, everything that comes with WGM, skinship, shipping, the couple outings and outfits


he’s actually super supportive but in a less stressful way compared to jb. mark focuses more on the fun and cute side, rather than the distracting skinship. but more so that he can tease you about calling the other guy oppa in a really ‘cute’ way.


just a friendly txt a few hundred times a day, to remind you who really cares about you. he’s not worried, just better safe than sorry


everyday before you leave for filming he’d do something super sweet to help you through the day, a packed lunch, a little post-it note in your fave book, a text essay, a long last hug as you leave the house. just like jackson he reminds you that your his and he is yours, but more gentle


Mr nice guy, is supporting you throughout the whole thing, he doesn’t do much out of the ordinary, but he does welcome you back more sweetly as the ‘wedding’ approaches, and you find more snacks as it comes to the ‘break-up’


he ‘doesn’t care’ in the sense that he doesn’t show he’s worries, but his watching every episode and behind the scenes with jackson and yugyeom to see if they can spot the guy trying to make a move


like bambam he doesn’t try to show much displeasure, but he talks to you everyday to see the progress and give you ‘tips’ to what a man mitt do to sway your heart, and that you should stay away from these moves

Gifs are not my own

Hetalia Character Hugging Styles

America: He’s a bear hug type of guy. He hugs you and hugs you tight enough it’s a bit hard to breath but his hugs always feel so comforting and protective you don’t mind.

N. Italy: His hugs usually have a running start and leave the breath knocked out of you! His hugs are strong and long lasting leaving you feeling loved.

France: His hugs are close and intimate. They’re usually accompanied by a kiss on the head and whispered words of love and praise. You can’t help but to want more.

Germany: His hugs are always a bit stiff and awkward at first. Eventually he relaxes though and they end up warm and comforting. They always leave you with a smile on your face.

Russia: His hugs are totally consuming. He hugs you tight and long swallowing you up with his large frame. It seems like he’ll never let go but you don’t mind because you never want him too.

Do you have any Jewish Harry Potter verse headcanons?

I have so many. First of all: Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, and all other Jewish languages producing their own spells that cause some different effects. Jewish Hogwarts students secretly replacing Christmas decorations with Chanukah ones, and none of them ever getting caught.

The Hogwarts house elves make sure to prepare kosher food if there are any students that keep kosher (and any dietary restriction, religious or otherwise), there is always a massive feast for the Jewish students before and after Yom Kippur. Hogwarts doesn’t let students go home for Jewish holidays (unless they coincide with Christian ones), so the Jewish students from every House celebrate together. It’s not perfect because they all have different traditions, but they need to stick together.

Magical seders are the most amazing thing, charms are used to illustrate the story of passover, finding the afikomen is an adventure, especially at Hogwarts.

Jewish Hogwarts students standing up for each other and forming strong interhouse friendships, many of which last long after they leave Hogwarts.

Basic Information; Aoife Bedivere

Full Name: Aoife Bedivere (ee-fa bed-uh-veer)
None! (unless we’re including all of the fun ways myself and other muns like to butcher/spell her name ha ha ha….)
Midlander | Hyur
31st Sun of the 3rd Astral Moon
Dark ash brown fading into a lighter brown. The light brown slowly consumes her natural hair color with every aether outburst she has.
120 lbs
Main Job:
White Mage
Off-hand Job(s):
Dragoon/Monk. Aoife would never set out with anything but her staff, but she has picked up tricks and self defense skills from her mother, Rozlyn (dragoon) and older brother, Callum (monk) because she knows she can’t always rely on having the advantage of range in battle. In close combat, she’ll resort to using her staff as an improvised spear/polearm/etc, or if stripped of that, Callum has taught her enough to fend for herself. Aoife is of course not nearly as skilled in those areas as she is a white mage and could probably not hold out for as long.
Aoife likes to consider herself a fairly decent chef! She learned everything she knows from her father, who is a well known culinarian in Limsa. Very few things make her happier than cooking for friends, family or even strangers. She may often times be seen giving meals she prepared to those who are less fortunate, especially close to Starlight.
