Susan’s lips press into a firm line, soon to curl and rub the pads of her finger tips across the tops of her cheek bones to swipe, brush aside and dry the unsuspecting tear that built and dribbled from her left eye. It was so unexpected. It was an unpromoted rogue tear, unprovoked and quite so sudden it offended the Madam. Her eyes had not stung, a feeling of high emotion had not befell her to a point she was overwhelmed…
It was all to do with being so absorbed, thinking if how she looked so weak in the eyes of Venreena and Cedrick, and Ivosar, Ren, Kendari… She could only imagine hiw they must have seen her leaning her weight into a concerned tigress, dragging her feet and grimacing the longer she stayed atop her aching feet.
It was so humiliating to see their concern, for them to reach out and attempt to help her. It only made her feel weak and vulnerable. Because she was.
The suicide of men, now that it’s actually being talked about, has been attributed solely to mental illness. Treating the problem after the damage has been done rather than solving the problems that lead to it. A man who has lost his children, his livelihood, his purpose in life, is not usually mentally ill. A woman “attempting” suicide as a call for help knows that she will get that help. A man succeeding, using a vastly more accurate method, has no hope left.
1. Midnight Rendezvous: Invite him to a duel and then bond over shared rule-breaking. Didn’t work because Weasley insisted on coming along. Reported them to Filch instead.
2. Midnight Rendezvous, second attempt: Inspire gratitude by helping him deal with illegal dragon. Possible small talk about my name? Caught by McGonagall
3. Show off amazing Quidditch skills and really cool new broom. Nope. Granger said I bought my way onto the team (NOT TRUE) and I’m pretty sure Potter believed it.
4. Send carefully composed and endearing Valentine (the only good thing Lockhart has ever done). I don’t think he liked it very much, despite the brilliant lyrics I composed. Ended up shifting blame onto the Girl Weasel. Fairly certain he doesn’t suspect.
5. Become gravely injured in order to appeal to his Savior Complex and inspire feelings of protectiveness. DO NOT ATTEMPT AGAIN. Was nearly murdered when I insulted that giant filthy chicken, and yet Potter decided that IT was the victim?! Unacceptable. I will not rest until that beast is put down.
6. A fun prank! He seems to enjoy stuff like this when the Weasley Twins do it, so I’m sure he will laugh. Learn to sew. It turns out that Potter has no sense of humor as well as very poor vision, because he nearly killed me with that damn Patronus Charm. Although I must admit, it is kind of hot that he can already do a Patronus.
7. Support him with Triwizard Tournament badges! Okay, this one was probably my fault. Pansy saw me experimenting with them and I changed the messages at the last minute. Why can’t he just realize that I don’t mean it?
8. Report Potter’s tragic story to the Prophet to increase sympathy and support. Exaggerate if it will get him more attention. I realize now that Potter does not like attention. Also Skeeter made out like Potter is in some sort of love triangle involving Granger, which is not even remotely acceptable. This was a mistake.
9. Show respect for his friends by composing an encouraging song in Weasley’s honor. Apparently making the title sound complimentary isn’t enough to negate other more insulting lyrics. Honestly this was doomed from the start because there is literally nothing good about the Weasel except his best friend.
10. Impress him with your status and power by leading the Inquisitorial Squad. Umbridge is an absolute menace and I am an idiot.
11. Make him jealous: Flirt excessively with Pansy. I don’t think he even noticed.
12. Show him your sensitive side by crying in the girls’ loo. Fuck.
Sorry I haven’t written in a while.
13. Realize you’ve been a complete arse for your entire life. Regret everything. Do your best to become someone who does the right thing. Don’t identify Potter when asked. Stop cronies from killing him. Apologize sincerely after he gets you off at your trial. Invite him for dinner.
14. Invite him for drinks.
15. Buy him a birthday present.
16. Kiss him.
17. Go back to his flat.
18. Refuse to leave his bed. This only works for so long.

fandom: jason todd grew up poor and so he’s a strong advocate of the way the system works, recognizes the merits of social work, ultimately didn’t want to pursue a higher education because of how much he wanted to be actively involved in helping kids that grew up under the same circumstances he did!! uwu
actual jason todd: grew up to despise the system and its failed attempts to help people on such a level he doesn’t believe even batman’s attempts to help others are enough, has literally spent absurd amounts of money to help him further his agenda in his early red hood days, always chose school and education over his robin gig despite loving the latter a monumental amount, would have actually gone to college if he, i don’t know, hadn’t fucking died. probably flips off people with a “money isn’t everything!!!” attitude. slathers his naked body w/ benjamins

I love that Lena is Kara’s Lois Lane. She’s the one who keeps putting herself into dangerous situations in an attempt to help, Supergirl has to keep saving her, and Lena is intrigued by and possibly in love with both Kara and Supergirl but hasn’t put the pieces together yet despite being an incredibly intelligent woman.
Why Midoriya Izuku is the Best Shounen Main Character
Alright so I’m pretty guilty right now. I have a lot of
things to sort out and I still unanswered asks and oh boy do I got a lot of
fanfic writing to do before summer ends and I’m opening requests soon but JESUS
Y’ALL. Im a huge fan of this series and I’ll be damned if I miss writing
something for this boy’s birthday. I already missed writing my Inko
appreciation on her birthday but I won’t let her down!
So…HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MIDORIYA IZUKU AKA BEST SHOUNEN MC
Woah, broad statement to say huh? Well, my friends, I’ve
read a lot of manga, particularly shounens since that’s my more favorite genre,
and I have to say that Midoriya Izuku has been the best main character I’ve
ever read and I only hope he continues to grow into his beautiful character.
I mean even from the beginning of the manga, the way he was
written was so completely relatable and realistic. In the very beginning of the
manga, he was written to be this lonely boy who suffered through bullying and
suicide comments and continuously kept going because of his obsession with
heroes. From the very beginning, Horikoshi gave us this character that wasn’t
perfect (rather was filled with psychological issues) and really at the bottom
of the totem pole. I know a lot of people have compared Izuku with Naruto but
at least Naruto was born with an incredibly gifted ability from the start.
Izuku was literally born with nothing. In a society where there are heroes
running rampant and where Izuku dreams about being a hero, he was literally
born with all odds against him in that regard. Yet, through all the loneliness,
through all the bullying, Izuku still stayed strong through all of that and continued
to dream on his goal, only truly wavering once when All Might told him he
should find a new dream (and even then, he still got himself almost killed but
I’ll get to that in a bit).
And to add on to his realistic demeanor, I know a lot of
people call Izuku a cry baby and make fun of his constant amount of crying but
honestly? Imagine this: you were born a black sheep in society, everyone looks
down on you, you dream of being something great but you weren’t born with the
skills for it, someone you consider to be a friend looks down on you and
literally tells you to go jump off a building and destroys a piece of you that
you hold memorable, then you almost get killed but someone saves you, then you
finally get to meet your idol, the person keeping you alive essentially and
they tell you straight up that you should give up on your dream, then you’re devastated
but you see that friend in a life threatening position so you literally
sacrifice yourself to go save them even though you can’t do anything, and then
instead of praise, you get all the blame and beaten down again while your
friend gets all the praise, but then you end that EMOTIONAL DAY (keep in mind
it happened within a DAY) with your idol telling you that you can be that person
and he will help you achieve your dream. I won’t even go onto the other times
he’s cried but honestly? I know if I was in his position, I wouldn’t have even
stomached half of what happened and I’m sure most of you reading this wouldn’t
be able to have a DAY like that without crying. I’m sure with 99% of you, at
least once tears will shed. Izuku during his time has been through emotionally
exhausting feats and I think it’s absolutely INCREDIBLE that Horikoshi gives us
this raw character with RAW emotions. Through Izuku being this emotional, not
only does it help us relate to him much more but it helps shows that, hey you
can still be strong AND be emotional too. Emotions doesn’t equal weakness and
Horikoshi really shows that tremendously, especially when the audience are a
group of young ones-adults that are taught daily showing emotions is weak and
you have to be strong and not show weakness because apparently crying shows
weakness. With Izuku, all of that is stomped on the ground and it’s truly
And oh boy, my favorite part of Izuku! So most shounen
protagonists I have seen and come across are usually born or given this great
ability suddenly and yes, while they have to train, they normally get the hang
of it pretty quickly and are pretty op with it (I’m looking at you Natsu). Most
of the time nakama power is enough to win the battle even though the power
difference is crazy different. Yet with Izuku, it’s not like that at all. We
are 145 chapters in and Izuku can only still use a small portion of One for All
still and he’s gotten to the point where, because of his continuous idiotic use
of One for All, he has the major consequence that if he uses it too much at
100%, he could lose FUNCTION IN HIS ARMS. OH YEA, PRETTY BIG DEAL AND
CONSEQUENCE FOR THAT.
From what I just wrote, this was my favorite thing that was
Yes, folks, he not only says that once, not twice, but
multiple times throughout the series. I think the most recent time he said it
was during Episode 27 when he was climbing the walls, though I’m sure he’s said
it in the future arcs and I forgot about it. Due to this new given status he
was given, Izuku acknowledges that he is completely far behind from everyone
else, he understands that he is at the bottom of the totem pole and that he has
to work 10x harder than everyone else since he lost about 10-11 years to get
used to his quirk. And throughout the series, Horikoshi doesn’t pull back on
that, in fact he really drives it in that, while Izuku does become the greatest
hero of all time, it doesn’t happen overnight, it takes a lot of time, training
and consequences to get to that point. Even from the beginning, we were given a
small glimpse of his incredible training regime and that alone just shows how
much effort he has to put in and even that wasn’t enough. I won’t lie, it feels
so refreshing that the Main Character isn’t some overpowered person who always
gets away with his ridiculous moves, rather it’s nice that he does have
consequences and that he see him actually develop into that role while he is
being surrounded by others who could take that title from him.
Also, not only is he an intelligent and incredibly hard
worker like holy hell, but can we talk about his personality as well? See, here
is another perk about Izuku, we weren’t given some either suave person or an
annoying character that makes you want to rip out your hair because they’re
either too happy or too sad or too emo cringey mess. Rather, Horikoshi gave him
a realist personality who thinks through, is incredibly modest and respectful,
and holy fuck the most selfless character in the entire show.
I mean, we already know
his intelligence and craftiness as he analyzes heroes and their moves as seen
through the constant muttering he does as he watches them and his writings in
Which might I add right
now that I’m really happy Horikoshi gave him this type of analytic behavior as
it makes his earlier actions have a bit more sense involved in them, like due
to his constant observation he was able to use moves in combat that at least
got him by in the beginning
To also tie in with that,
can I say that it is so refreshing to have a main character be a complete DORK
about girls and such like that?? Like for someone who was lonely and only had
much of the internet to interact with, it makes complete sense that in the
beginning he’s really nervous around females or even touching them or talking
Like look at how he talks
Or even how he reacted
when Tsuyu said to put her down
Or even how he reacted
towards Mei when she had her chest all up in his grill.
Not only does having this
personality trait make him a total dork and cutie but it really shows that we
won’t see anything super perverted on Deku’s side. Like if he’s too nervous to
talk or even touch a girl in a different manner, than it really shows how respectful
he is and how modest he is and how we won’t see any pervy side of Deku anytime
soon, which is refreshing for an MC to be that way since most MCs have to
either touch or acknowledge their love interest’s chest before they can be established
as a good character.
Though, I will say that
even though those are amazing points of our birthday boy, the one personality
trait of his that truly makes him a much more fitting hero than Bakugou or even
Todoroki or even my baby Ochako is how incredibly SELFLESS he is. Ok ok I know
that’s a common personality trait but Izuku really takes it to the max
throughout the manga.
Like when right after he was told to jump by Bakugou, his initial thoughts were based on Kacchan not wanting to get severely punished by the law
Or when he risks his
life to save Bakugou from the sludge monster even though he has no quirk
Or when he risks his life
once again to save Ochako even though he can’t control his quirk
Or when he risks his life
AGAIN to save All Might
Or when he attempts to
help Ochako before her fight with Bakugou
Or when he puts his spot
in the tournament on the line to help Todoroki reconcile his fire side
Or when he helps Iida with
the Stain fight and notifies the entire class to come and help
Or when he even goes well
over his power limit to save Kota and show him that heroes are good people that
can hold on their own
Or when, even though he
could lose function in his GOD DAMN ARMS, he still helps the others get Bakugou
back from the villains
And note guys, I didn’t
even list everything. I just listed the things I could remember but there is so
much more that I could have listed as well. And legit, the things I mentioned,
there was no benefit in him doing that, like during the time he did them, all
there were were cons for him, there was nothing positive in any of those
situations for him. And yet? He still did it. He still put himself and his
wishes behind to help those around him and make sure they were successful or
safe, even if it meant his own life on the line. I’ve never seen other shounen
protagonists push themselves this much in only 145 chapters and I think that’s
Alright so this post is
reaching to be about 2k and while I can say more about this wonderful boy, I
also want to make sure that I not only post this on time but that I don’t find
myself repeating the same thing over and over again. While Izuku is not my
favorite character of all time, I am so happy and blessed that he is the main
character of this amazing manga series. He’s grown so much since the first
chapter and Horikoshi is only setting up the series more to have him grow much
more and I’m excited to see how much more he grows as the series progresses. He
is such a good character that is well balanced and realistic and such and I
know for myself personally that I really relate to him in a lot of ways. Truth
be told, it makes me actually really incredibly sad when people dismiss his
reasoning for being a hero or when people just write him off as a cry baby
because there’s so much more to him than just that. His reasoning to be a hero
is realistic and deep enough, his emotions are realistic, his psychological
issues that he faced with in the beginning shows his strength tremendously.
Izuku is one of the best
main characters and I’m so happy all of us were blessed with him on this
wonderful day! Yay!!! Happy Birthday Deku!!!
Tldr; Izuku’s face appears
when you look up the definition of what a friend and a hero is.
I need to comment rq on bughead things I noticed and now are my aesthetic.
Jughead not knowing what to do with his hand’s. He attempted to help Betty take of her shirt, but failed because he never once actually grasped the shirt. Then his hands shakily just ended up grabbing her face and kissing her. He is kinda sloppy but passionate, ya feel? → Aesthetic.
Hand on throat. Awkward moment when we thought Jughead would be a soft and shy lover. NAH FAM. Puppy with the beanie on, kinky mother fucker with the beanie off.
Betty pushing closer to his mouth.
The chemistry in this scene was wild, I was flustered as fuck and completely forgot Archie and Veronica were doing anything when it cut away from them TBH. (sorry, I’m really not into V//rchie)
!!!A E S T H E T I C!!!
P.S. I love Bughead, alot. This scene is the only thing I can think about at the moment.
ALSO: Jughead saying he loves Betty twice.
Summary: It had endured centuries on earth, indulging selfishly in Its desires, never once blinking at Its monstrous ways. Your arrival into Its existence warped the both of you into an emotional chaos of white-hot lust and desire, throwing the both of you into never a ending poignant rollarcoaster of longing and unattainable sensual tranquility.
The clock was ticking. It couldn’t bring Itself to leave you, yet It couldn’t bring Itself to stay either. It hated this love, It hated this lust, It hated this desire, and most of all, It hated that It didn’t hate you.
Author’s Note: Critique is welcomed. This is the first fic I’ve written in ages. Apologize for any typos or grammar mistakes, I swear I proofread this three hundred times. Typos will be the death of me. I tried. The next two chapters will be posted within a couple of hours. I may or may not have accidentally written 20K+ words of this fic before posting. Whoops. Enjoy!
Words: 5.1K +
Warnings: Very gory. NSFW content. Very sexual. Lots of clown sex. You know, the usual.
The first time It had tasted you was where it began. It had sunk Its teeth into your skin, every intention of getting a quick, juicy meal out of your body. Its eyes rolled to the back of Its head, the endless row of gums and fangs spilling out from Its deformed excuse for a mouth, becoming more monstrous by the second. Your ears were ringing rapidly in your head and you were convinced your heart would burst from fear sooner than you would die from this grotesque being; the organ pounded against your chest like it was a cage, a desperate animal fleeting to escape, your breathing impossibly quick. It had you cornered, there was nowhere to run, and even if there was, the monster had made it clear that It was more than capable of using Its strength to stop you.
You knew one thing on this night; you were sure you were going to die.
Authors Note: Hey guys! Just to let you know, the boys’ dialogue is written in italics, I’m sorry for any confusion and I hope you enjoy :)
To you Justin Foley was the new boy next door. He was cheeky and incredibly flirtatious with you, even when he caught your eye at school he still managed to make you smile. Your parents initially had their personal reservations about Justin because of his troublesome background but they soon came around to loving him, as did you. Justin would always catch you on your way to school so you two could walk in together “Morning, beautiful” “Sup, Foley”
Being a new transfer student to Liberty High, you were surprised to have received an invite to the upcoming weekend house party. Despite parties not being your favourite social setting you figured it would be the best way to meet new people and make friends. Here, you met Alex. The boy with the impeccable fashion taste and sarcastic tongue. “Hey, it’s Y/N right?” “Yeah, Alex? I think you’re in my music class?” “ That’s me, it’s nice to see someone with some social depth at one of these things” “Thanks, I’m guessing you’re having copious amounts of fun then?” “It’s a party, so I’m pretending to have fun. (see gif) Now that you’re here though I might not have to pretend”
Over the summer your parents had practically forced you to take a job at the towns local theatre, in an attempt to help grow your independence as well as simply getting you out of the house; a decision you honestly didn’t feel too fondly about. The only positive to your first day at work was meeting Clay. Clay Jenson. He was adorably awkward and sweet, making you physically unable to stop smiling whenever you were around him. Somehow this one guy made the rest of your working summer seem exciting. “Hey Clay, maybe I was wrong. Maybe this summer won’t suck that much after all.” “It won’t, well… not if I can help it, Y/N.”
Your best friend Clay Jenson had lost yet another bet with his older friend, Jeff Atkins. Thus resulting in the both of you attending a generic and seemingly underwhelming high school party. Personally, you had never had the pleasure of meeting Jeff until that unexpectedly amazing night. Clay had always admired the guy, which made Jeff’s perfect first impression to you even more genuine. The two of you instantly hit it off. “I’m sorry Jenson but where on earth have you been hiding Y/N? She’s crazy beautiful.”
Despite seeing Zach around the corridors of Liberty High and catching his more than impressive performance in the odd couple of basketball games, the two of you had never really been given the opportunity to speak. That was until Mrs Bradley decided to pair you two up for a class project. Zach was a lot sweeter than you had imagined and the two of you ended up getting along really well. “Not going to lie, Y/N, I’m kinda sad this little project is over.” “Really?” “Yeah, now I need to find another good excuse to hang out with you everyday.”
Snape: is a terrorist, verbally abuses kids, abuses his position as a teacher, led to the death of two if not more people, ruined someone’s career by outing them as a werewolf, physically threw a child out of the room, was a kids biggest fear (the same kid whose parents were tortured into insanity), called his only friend a racial slur after she attempted to help him, literally didn’t find anything wrong with voldemort’s political position and only the fact that he wanted to kill his obsession, was fine with dumbledore saving lily but not james or harry suggesting snape didn’t give two craps about lily’s happiness and only cared for him being the rebound.
james: a fifteen year old who bullied (let this be clear that i highly doubt snape didn’t retaliate) who grew up from that and stopped, saved his enemies life, became animagi with two others to help his other best friend each month, was unapologetically a blood traitor, helped sirius escape from his family, fostered sirius, offered all his friends money if they needed it, joined an anti-terrorist organisation at the peak of the war when voldemort looked like he might win (and james was 17/18 when he did this), gave up everything he had known to go into hiding and protect his son and wife, LITERALLY DIED WANDLESS KNOWING HE WOULDNT SURVIVE BUT HOPING HE WOULD BE ABLE TO STALL ENOUGH TIME SO HIS WIFE AND SON COULD ESCAPE !!! AND THE FANDOM WORSHIPS SNAPE OVER JAMES??????? ALL BECAUSE SNAPE WAS FRIENDZONED ARE YOU KIDDING ME THIS SPEAKS VOLUMES ABOUT OUR SOCIETY
