because dear god that does things to me

taemin in college
  • double major in criminology and japanese, minor in latin 
  • whenever he tells anyone his minor they’ll always ask him to say something and he’s just like spouting random stuff like “water, vengeance, rock duck, veni vedi vici, amen” (”did you just say amen?? was that a prayer??” / taemin: *sweating* “yeah”) 
  • tbh saying amen is just a reflex from when he was an altar boy 
  • rides a longboard around campus
  • occasionally his cap will fly off while he’s cruising and he’ll have to backtrack and awkwardly trudge after it (”omg pls don’t roll away hat i’m coming back for you”) 
  • he spent a really long time practicing ollies in the quad and now he randomly kicks up his board on his way to class like nbd he’s just super cool
  • his backback is HUGE 
  • he just keeps EVERYTHING in there so he’ll never forget anything (jonghyun: omg just get yourself a planner or something and keep notes / taemin: no. never. it’s better this way) 
  • honestly getting things in that bag is like playing tetris and you never know what he’ll pull out of there??? onew’s homework (”omfg i was looking for that everywhere”), a bag of chocolate chips (onew: this is my compensation), multiple chargers, rolls of tape, ah there’s his syllabus, oh his rosary!!! 6v6
  • he’s that kid who ALWAYS loses his student id and people post in his class facebook page like “taemin i found your card again” 
  • works at the bookstore and when he sees minho coming in, immediately turns around and walks in the opposite direction bc he loves him and all but minho buys in like bulk and he does not get paid enough for this no siree 
  • does not own a single uni sweater/shirt himself despite the 15% discount his friends abuse 
  • until jong gave him a giant uni sweatshirt for christmas that he… rang up for him?? but it’s actually pretty comfy and he wears it on exam days bc the long sleeves are comforting and could absorb tears if it comes down to that 
  • whenever key walks into his dorm he’s always watching some anime (it’s usually one punch man lately) and he always insists it’s ~studying~
  • also his room always so messy omg like boy do you unpack by opening your suitcase and just chucking your clothes all around like a tornado??? 
  • hurricane taemin 
  • but seriously there’s no floor showing 
  • minho: where do you study in your room?? / taemin: i just kinda *motions at the mess in a vague manner* / minho: that gives me literally zero answers
  • he studies a lot with key at the cafe jonghyun works at (for the free coffee / jong: literally you guys only come here for my coffee and not for me / taekey: … well yeah / jong: you’re both banned forever bye) bc he likes the buzz of other people talking 
  • can’t really focus when it’s too quiet  
  • does really well in classes despite sometimes missing a few bc he just straight up forgot that it was during a certain timeslot (key: how / taemin: things just happen!!! it’s totally plausible that you’d forget sometime!!! / onew: we have 5 weeks of school left) 
  • people sometimes forget that he’s also a crim major also but he’s genuinely interested in forensic science and piecing together what happened and how 
  • almost always knows the answer when the prof ask a question but doesn’t really participate unless called on and he could talk for a WHILE once he gets past the initial stuttering start 
  • honestly every time he has to present in class considers taking a shot to loosen his nerves because dear god he hATES public speaking 
  • he can’t bc asian glow is so real 6///6
Dear Straight Girls,
Shut. Up.
It’s nothing personal, really, it’s just that us gay girls get fucking tired of your bullshit sometimes. I know that you’re not trying to be rude, really I do, but it’s been a long day, and you jokingly calling me an abomination because “you have gay friends who say it all the time” doesn’t make it any shorter.
Dear Straight Girls,
The last thing I want to hear about is how un-fucking-fortunate it is that you got the straight end of the stick. That you wish more than anything that you could’ve been gay, because god, that would just make your life so much easier.
This may shock you, but moaning about how hard it is to be a heterosexual, does not get you a gold star in my book. It tells me that you only think of being gay as a lifestyle: an edgy, hipster choice that all us cool kids are making that you feel left out of. Well, guess what? If me and my future girlfriend can get kicked out of bakeries, kicked out of our homes, kicked out of our jobs- then you can handle not being part of this.
Dear Straight Girls,
Fuck you. Fuck you for thinking I’m always looking at you, for thinking I always want you. You are not the center of my universe. You are not some irresistible vixen just because my attraction to girls like you exists. You’re a girl. And I like girls. But that doesn’t mean I like you. Get over it.
Dear Straight Girls,
If I have to hear about how amazing your gaydar is one more time, someone’s getting punched in the tit. Don’t look at me, I don’t make the rules. Besides, I already knew they were gay five minutes before you. You’re not special.
Dear Straight Girls,
I know you’re probably pouting at my letters this very moment because I’m just the angry motherfucking queer girl with too much to say, but if you want to be as accepting as you say you are, shut up and let the gays talk every once in awhile. Maybe then we wouldn’t have to have this conversation every other day.
Dear Straight Girls,
Having a gay best friend doesn’t make you a queer activist. It doesn’t give you permission to call people dykes or fags because you are now an “honorary gay.” It makes you a person. With a best friend. Like the rest of us. Who needs. To shut. The fuck. Up.
Dear Straight Girls,
I’m not.
—  Fuck you for thinking otherwise
Gryffindor!Mingyu & Slytherin!Minghao

Gryffindor!Mingyu
•has a yearly tradition of buying one of every single snack when the lady with the cart of goodies passes him on the train
•he’s not wizard born, both his parents are muggles, so his first year he was like “weird looking/moving food? Sign me tf up”
•it’s been tradition ever since
•let’s be real it’s the main reason that Soonyoung and DK sit with him on the train rides
•once during the prank war between Gryffindors and Slytherins (see Hufflepuff!Joshua and Slytherin!Jihoon post to understand), Chan slipped him what he thought was a shrinking potion.
•But in actuality it was a growing potion.
•so 6 foot tall Mingyu became 9 foot tall Mingyu
•the effects of the potion latest a week and Mingyu had to be excused from quidditch practice because he couldn’t fit on the broom…
•was peer pressured by Seungcheol to join the quidditch team and is like “mehhh” about it until you get the the quidditch game
•then he’s competitive and determined af
•the reason Seungcheol wanted him on the team is because he saw Mingyu sprint across the castle from the dining hall to divination because he lost track of the time and was gonna be late, and Seungcheol was like “if he can run that fast for that long, how fast do you think he could fly??”
•the answer to that is pretty damn fast as they both found out at tryouts
•he ends up becoming one of the chasers for the Gryffindor team
•the only thing Mingyu had to practice a lot to get good at was catching the freaking quaffle because he’s a clumsy giant and kept dropping it accidentally
•Mingyu: *drops quaffle from 100ft in the air*
•Seungcheol: “gOd dAMn iT, go get it!!”
•is dorm roomies with Seungcheol and vry happy about it
•just came here to have a good time and learn magic n stuff but Seungcheol and Vernon are always dragging him into their messes
•Seungcheol and Vernon are always tryna prank the Slytherins but Mingyu just wants to live in peace and not be targeted for revenge
•it’s hard for him to stay inconspicuous when it comes to pranking because he’s really freaking tall (he literally stands out of a crowd) and has like the worst poker face. Precious tol bean
•Mingyu: *walks into the dining hall with a really awkward/uncomfortable smile*
•Chan: *blows whistle* “TAKE COVER”
•all the Slytherins duck under their tables and then the cakes that were on those tables explode
•Seungcheol and Vernon just look at Mingyu with the most disappointed look
•they learn to stop including Mingyu if they want to be successful
•anyway moving on
•every year, the new first years are kid of wary/cautious around him because he seems like a tall, intimidating guy
•but then he runs into a pillar or almost falls off the moving stairs and they’re like “oh. he’s fine”
•generally a tall innocent meme who just wants to live peacefully but… naw lol his clumsiness and friends liven up things
•he enjoys it and appreciates them but he won’t say it directly
•he’ll bake Seungcheol and Vernon cookies or some shit and they’re just so skeptical about it
•Vernon: “did you poison these? Have we personally wronged you somehow? Idk what it was but I’m sorry please don’t kill me with these”
•Seungcheol: “no no I don’t think that’s it, he would have nowhere to hide our bodies. I think he did something wrong and we’re gonna lose house points or something so he’s trying to get on our good side before it comes to light”
•Mingyu: “wow I literally just made you cookies and I’ve been personally attacked. I’m gonna eat all three dozen of these with the Hufflepuffs, they’re way nicer than you guys”
•Seungcheol: “Mingyu we’re sorry come bACK”
•and Mingyu does come back and the positive vibe is restored via eating cookies and goofing off, what these three do best

Slytherin!Minghao
•was really psyched to go to a wizarding school because he didn’t have any wizard/witch friends growing up
•until he got on the train and saw Vernon try to snort smarties because Soonyoung told him “it’s a thing the muggle kids do”
•Minghao was freaking out on the inside like “dear god… They’re idiots… I thought wizards would be more mindful people like me…”
•so he decided to keep observing the people on the train before actually initiating a conversation with anyone
•he sat down in an empty seat and started ‘reading’, but he was actually listening to everyone interact and figuring out who he might be able to tolerate for the next seven years
•the thing that got him to finally decide someone was okay to talk to was when Seungcheol accidentally elbowed Jun in the face as they were passing each other in the narrow hall of the train, and Jun started swearing in Chinese because ow
•Minghao looked up from his book so fast he got whiplash but was like “HIM. IT HAS TO BE HIM”
•Minghao’s thinking “we can talk shit about people right in front of them and they won’t know what we’re saying” (honestly, friendship goals)
•and he’s also thinking “if I have a friend that speaks my native language, maybe I won’t feel so homesick” but he doesn’t acknowledge that feeling bc he’s tryna be tough
•so Minghao walks over to Jun and is like “you okay?” in Chinese and Jun is just like !!! New Chinese buddy??
•they sit together and by the end of this train ride they’re close friends and have talked a lot of shit. About eVeRyOnE except that one kid Joshua because like they tried to find something bad to say about him and literally couldn’t?? Like why is an angel on this train??
•they gossip lightheartedly, obviously they’re not really hating on everyone
•they’re just being like “how many times do you thing Vernon will silently stare at Seungkwan until he stops talking and pays attention to him”
•casually blunt observers
•turns out Jun and Minghao both planned to try out for the quidditch team even before they got to Hogwarts
•the Slytherins captain at the time was like “listen all you people wanting to try out, it’s not gonna be easy”
•the people who really wanted a position on the team were the ones who stuck through all the tough drills and training
•and the only two left in the end for the two open spots were Jun and Minghao
•Minghao earned the position of beater (not even a little surprised) and Jun was made a Chaser
•the literal definition of resting bitch face. He does not look approachable by any means if he’s by himself
•he also looks really stylish in his robes by adding accessories and doing his make up real nice, etc. But to some people that can be a little off-putting because wow?? This person has their shit together enough to accessorize?? I sure don’t.
•so that adds to the 'unapproachable’ vibe.
•but when Minghao is talking to one of his friends, he has the cutest happy expression on his face
•the kind of loving look that everyone wants someone to look at them like that
•at first everyone thought that Minghao and Jun were dating because they spent so much time together
•when someone nosy *COUGH CouGH s e u n g k w a n* asked them about it, it ended up a lil something like this
•Jun: “you think I’m dating Minghao? I have this thing called standards, don’t kid yourself”
•Minghao: “why would I date the moron who’s probably backhugged every other boy in this school. Do I look like the kind of person to settle for an idiot like that”
•Jun & Minghao: *shrug at each other, fist bump, and walk away together*
•Seungkwan: “????? the fuck”
•so yeah they’re not dating, just besties that enjoy roasting not only other people, but each other
•because let’s be real if you can’t roast your friends, are you really even friends???
•When it comes to the prank war… You do nOT want to go up against Jun and Minghao
•because they only prank together and they have no mercy
•like you thought Monsta X’s No Mercy would make you cry?? Jun and Minghao’s wrath is worse
•y'all thought getting hexed by Jihoon was bad… At least that only lasts like 15 minutes, max. (Except for that one time… rip DK… but that’s a whole other story)
•these assholes will prank you until you break and beg them to stop
•they will not stop until you admit that they win
•if you tell them they’ve won, they’ll never bother you again.
•they don’t do any really harsh pranks, they just keep bothering you incessantly until you give up
•Jun is mainly the execution of these pranks, and Minghao is the brains behind it
•moral of the story, don’t try to fuck with them lmao
•Minghao’s favorite class is Care of Magical creatures and I will fight anyone who disagrees with me
•he tries to be cool, like “hmm I’m a Slytherin, I don’t care too much for this” but homeboy skips his classes sometimes just to go pet and feed Buckbeak (catch me sobbing, what a soft cutie)
•if you ask him nonchalantly a question about a creature he’ll pull up a projector and show you a PowerPoint full of fun facts about whatever creature you asked about, full of adorable pictures of said creature
•even if it’s a visually… challenged… (deadass ugly) creature, Minghao will describe it like it is the most precious thing and will convince you that it is precious. Because no one has the heart to disagree with this boy who’s so excited about these creatures??
•he is accidentally very cute
•just wants to be seen as independent and manly but is a spacey and cute boy

anonymous asked:

serious question: does God still love me even if im gay? it's kind of really important to me and the thought of Him hating me because i am makes me really bummed :(

Ah, dear anon, I’ve been there.
God does love you. The first thing I learned about God was that He loves all of His children, and I stand strongly behind that belief.
There is one verse in the Bible that says “man shall not lie with man”, but it’s in a section of the Bible with other statements such as ones that say you cannot eat shrimp, you cannot wear clothes of mixed fabric, etc., so if you’re gonna tell me that being gay is a sin, I better not see you eating some shrimp in a 50% polyester and 50% cotton shirt. Plus, some translations have interpreted this verse to be speaking against pedophilia, not homosexuality. As well as this other wonderful interpretation: http://hoperemains.m.webs.com/site/mobile?dm_path=%2F&fw_sig_is_admin=0&fw_sig_partner=webs&fw_sig_social=0&fw_sig_potential_abuse=1&fw_sig_session_key=80f1639d0c92cfae77cf2206c1df681775b5d24a9c125471b0cb27a218632e4a-40298085&fw_sig_permissions=none&fw_sig_url=http://hoperemains.webs.com/&fw_sig_locale=en-US&fw_sig_site=40298085&fw_sig_tier=1&fw_sig_time=1479614718119&fw_sig_permission_level=0&fw_sig_access_token=cf5f78059085b55dcb55b7c0971433ccc3f11054&fw_sig_premium=1&fw_sig_api_key=522b0eedffc137c934fc7268582d53a1&fw_sig=49b2620380bb0908eb76144089afd677&fb_sig_network=fw#1033
In summary, when a book written thousands if years ago in Hebrew is translated to English, things easily get lost in translation.
It’s one verse in a Bible filled with other verses such as:
“Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore, love is fulfillment of the law.” [Romans 13:10]
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” [1 John 4:7]
“Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.” [Proverbs 10:12]
“And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” [Colossians 3:14]
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” [1 Peter 4:8]
“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” [1 John 4:12]
I could add so many more verses that stress the importance that you must love, truly and deeply.
God made you gay. He put every bit of you together, and He made someone beautiful.
There are going to people who will tell you you’re wrong, I’m not gonna lie. There are plenty of people who will tell you that being LGBT+ is a sin, but, as hard as it is, you must learn to tune them out. They’re not preaching God’s word by spreading hate. You are just loving, and that is not wrong.
Feel free to message me again if you ever need to talk about this. Sending love! God bless!

Cold day (Colossus x Reader)

Tons of things to say: Sorry for not bringing any request, and sorry for making this even though I said my brain was not working. First Colossus one, shortie but well, it’s not even that good. Whoopsie.

  • Words:  696
  • Pairing: Colossus x Mutant!Reader
  • Warnings: Little fluff.
  • Author notes: (Y/N) is your name

You sat on the cold wooden floor right in front of the stove. It had some chopped logs inside but you couldn’t find the matches to light the fire. The Charles Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters didn’t have some freaking matches anywhere. The convenient thing though, was that you could actually light the fire with only the flick of your fingers.
 
Earlier that day you were had been training the physical part until some of the younger students went to you for some help trying to turn on that stupid thing. The day was extremely cold indeed and you thought you might catch a cold for going into such a cold place being all sweaty and hot.
 
“Having all the contacts around the globe, neither Charles Xavier nor Jean Grey could get radiators or something to warm this thing up, right?” You said while crossing your legs and arranging again the logs “Because let’s make students use their powers to burn stuff and have them making fire for the rest of the school, institution, loony bin that they will eventually call home, right?” You flicked your fingers and set some fire just to see it die a few seconds later “Come one, why won’t you cooperate with me?” You whined and complained “Everyone in this place does and you, and immobile and completely dead thing won’t help me? Why dear god, why?” You raise your hand asking for heaven’s help.
 
Some heavy steps came your way and it was only one person in the whole school that walked like that. Professor Piotr Rasputin, also known as Colossus by the ones who feared him the most. Well, to the others he was “professor”, to you he was “darling”, “honey” and sometimes “baby”. He tried to hold back his laughter halfway of you because he heard you saying things out loud but with no one to hear them.        
 
“Have you already gone crazy, my love?” He asked, crossing his arms over his chest and giving you a ‘good god help me, this girl is nuts’         “Vat are you trying to do (Y/N)?” His thick accent spilled out and you loved how everything sounded with his voice.
“I’m not crazy” You roll your eyes, still very focused in the stove “I’m just trying to get this lighted up”
“Vy is that?” He asks, holding a chuckle “Are you feeling cold?”
“Yes I am, look at my attire please”
 
The students that came to you never gave you time to get changed or at least showered, so you were in your shorts and a loose top that wasn’t very warming or covering. Piotr checked you out and decided to sit next to you. He placed an arm behind you and made you lean closer to his body. For some reason he was always warm and you always felt very comfortable in there.
 
“You should go and get changed, don’t you think?” He asked, patting your hair.
“This school should get some central heating, don’t you think?” You complained.
“I asked first”
“I need to get this, if not I’m gonna catch a cold” You pouted “Then, I promise to get a shower”
“You’ll get a cold anyvay; being half-naked and sitting on the cold floor is definitely contributing” He smiled and giving you a fatherly look.
 
You arranged the logs one last time and silently prayed for it to work. You set different parts on fire, hoping that this would finally work. Piotr was really enjoying the scene of you, placing your hands together and pleading to any source of religion for this to work out.
 
“Yay!” You squealed when you saw the fire taking over the logs and finally heating the place. You clapped your hands like a little child and a huge grin drew across your face.
“Now, bathroom and getting into some varmer clothing” Piotr ordered “I can walk with you so you don’t get lost in the vay”
“I’m already feeling a little sick, professor” You faked two coughs and he lifted you so he could give you a piggyback ride “Thank you, honey” You whispered to his ear and kissed his always perfectly shaved cheek.

imagine joanna mccoy comming her dad one night and carol answers it because bones is working a late shift, and when she awkwardly introduces herself as his girlfriend jo is immediately on the defensive and prickly because her dad hasn’t really done actual romantic relationships since the divorce so this is the first time she’s having to deal with it

but carol went through literally the exact same thing - parents divorcing at a young age, living with her mum and barely seeing her dad because of his work - so she knows just what jo needs to hear and is generally just her charming lovely self to the point where when bones does return and tries to jump into the conversation jo is like “wait a sec daddy carol is telling me about torpedoes can you come back in like five minutes" 

bones stands there in silence for a few seconds like dear god I have been usurped 

“Because maybe it’s dumb to look for signs from the universe, maybe the universe has better things to do and dear god I hope it does. Do you know how many signs I’ve gotten that I should or I shouldn’t be with someone and where has it gotten me? Maybe there aren’t any signs, maybe a locket is just a locket, a chairs just a chair, maybe we don’t have to give meaning to every little thing, you know maybe we don’t need the universe to tell us what we really want maybe we already know that, deep down.” - Ted Mosby, HIMYM,S8 EP23.

My dear Christians and Muslims, I love you, but let’s get one thing straight, just because I understand, respect, and appreciate your religious beliefs it does not mean I need to believe in them. Please stop asking me to look into “this” or “that”. I get it, I respect it and even appreciate it, I just don’t believe it, and life is incredibly wonderful for me this way.

How Vikings Wore Their Hair

Thrall men, of course, kept their hair cropped short, the length never passing the ears. Think awkward bowl cut above the top of the ear. Like that.

Free men may have worn their hair longer. Usually just past the tops of the ears, sometimes down to the shoulders, rarely past the shoulder blades (because of practicality). They let their hair grow as long as they wanted it to be or as long as it was safe to be (long hair is actually sort of annoying in a Viking fight.  You opponent can grab it and use it against you). If a man wanted to shave part of his head to help prevent lice, he shaved part of his head. If a man wanted to wear a braid, he wore a braid. If he wanted a beard, he grew a beard. If he didn’t want a beard, he shaved it off. If he wanted to braid said beard, he did (A long enough beard to do so was actually not common.  The long hair argument in battle applies to beards as well).  There is no functional or structural purpose for hairstyles beyond vanity. With the exception of the distinctive Thrall cuts, there is absolutely no evidence of hairstyle being linked to status.

What it's like dating Klaus Mikaelson

-You have to deal with a lot of crap.

 -Like here you are having a normal conversation and somewhere along the lines you find out he just murdered like 5 people yesterday. 

-You’re basically his conscious.  

-People always come to you when they want to get things across to him because you’re the only person he listens to.

-It takes a lot to convince him okay.

-But he’s also super sweet when he wants to be.

-He likes to get you a lot of presents like expensive jewelry even though you’re always telling him not to.

-Despite appearances he’s a huge cuddler like he loves to come home from whatever he was doing and just cuddle with you in bed and talk.

-He’s very possessive mainly because he has a lot of enemies and he’s afraid they’ll hurt you to get to him.

-You get along really well with his family specially Rebekah and sometimes you take their side in matters which really upsets him.

-He gets over it eventually.

-He takes you to see the world ( my klaroline heart).

-He is low-key pretty stalkerish like he gets you a really pretty dress and you’re all

-“Not sure that’s gonna fit me just right “ 

-“Love don’t worry, I know it will.”

-When it actaully does you’re all ????¿??

-Klaus gives the best kisses that leave you breathless.

-I kinda think he really really likes making out.

-He loves taking you places showing you things (not the dirty way).

-He’s pretty old so he knows a lot of stuff about history which you love hearing.

-Klaus has had a tough life and has a habit of pushing people away and even though he doesn’t mean to he ends up doing the same to you.

-But he gets really happy that you don’t take any of his “1000 year old original hybrid crap” and force him to let you in.

-Because you know someone is there for him someone genuinely cares for him despite everything he has done. 

-When he’s not handling some serious stuff he’s just a really adorable boyfriend like he buys you flowers and takes you on surprise dates.

-Super protective. You’re the best thing that happened to him and he wants to keep it that way.

-Sometimes it’s a little too much like you’re made a new friend or something and he already thinks they want to murder you.

-Very jealous. Like if someone even looks at you for TOO long he’ll just put his arms around you and glare at them.

-May the Lord help the person who actually tries flirting with you.

-Like you’re at a bar or something and someone is flirting with you he’ll come over, put his arm around your waist and introduce himself as your boyfriend (which sounds kinda funny coming from him but flattering nonetheless) and if that won’t work he’ll very politely give them a death threat (with that smile dear Lord).

-May the Lord further help someone who actually had the guts to make you uncomfortable because you have to stop him from murder.

-Or the one time where you got yourself in that mess with a vampire clan where they tried to hurt you except Klaus came along at the right time.

-You made him promise not to kill them all.

 -He lied.

-Sometimes you get upset with him when he does such stuff but you eventually come around.

-There are several advantages of him having a thousand years of experience ;)

-Even though he’s not the easiest person to deal with you have gotten use to it and accepted him for all his flaws which he loves you for.

-He thinks he doesn’t deserve you because you’re so kind and pure but you always tell him off for that.

-He really does think you’re the best thing that ever happened to him and the light of his life.(Plus , like the nicknames like “love in his accent , dear God *__* get me a Klaus ) ~Circe

anonymous asked:

Hiya!! I love your headcanons for the riarkle kids (I love all your headcanons lbr here) and as a fellow theatre geek, wondered which kid is the most theatre geek-y? I know you said that they're all pretty involved, but there's a chill drama kid and then there's a Minkus-Matthews kid 😂 xxx

WHY WITH THE OC’S omfg okay

  • Penny cannot fucking sing
  • No one has the heart to tell her
  • Basically every year she goes out for shows and has an experience close to Farkle’s at the end of GM Truth
  • They do not tell her the truth lmao they just all let her believe that for some reason the drama teacher has already picked favorites and she’s just not one of them
  • She eventually just quits altogether like junior year because at this point it’s ‘disrespectful’ lmao but she still listens to/sees shows whenever she can.
  • Everyone keeps trying to get Cassie into theater professionally bc she’s A+ at dancing/singing/acting but the fact alone that everyone wants her to do it stops her from doing it lol
  • But she still really likes them
  • But to anyone outside her family, theater is like…a closeted passion lmao
  • Her daughter Tabitha gets super involved with it at school too
  • And then when they move to New York, they move in with Auggie and Ava and Ava’s a fucking Broadway actress so obviously the four of them geek out all the time
  • BUT SHE NEVER TOLD HER GIRLFRIEND KATIE ABOUT THE CLOSETED PASSION
  • And one day Katie tries to sneak into the apartment when she thinks everyone’s out to set up for a surprise romantic dinner
  • BUT THEY ARENT OUT
  • CASSIE, TABBY, AUGGIE AND AVA ARE HAVING A SHOWTUNES SING OFF
  • She enters as Cassie is doing Mein Herr from Cabaret
  • And when Cassie finally notices she’s there she’s FREAKING OUT because she’s been exposed but Katie is about to achieve an Anime-Nosebleed over this omfg
  • Needless to say she starts looking into musicals more and they just become trash together it’s v cute
  • Cleo does not fucking care
  • At all
  • You all need to stop singing
  • She just wants to play lacrosse STOP TAP DANCING DAD
  • SINGING RANDOMLY DOES NOT MAKE S E N S E
  • WHY ARE YOU ALL LIKE THIS
  • UGH
  • One day she caught her son Riley on Broadway.com and acted as though she had walked in on him watching porn omfg
  • She just. Needs everyone to stop with the theater thank you and goodnight lol
  • Tessa only admits to liking the ‘darker’ shows because she’s 9Edgy5You
  • You know like Sweeny Todd, American Psycho, Heathers, Jekyll and Hide, shows like that
  • Get this Mama Mia shit away from her, she yells, as Riley feels her heart collapse
  • Although Tessa will never admit it for obvious reasons, but she REALLY fucking loves Legally Blonde the musical omfg
  • The only time she ever did a show was her senior year when the school did Jekyll and Hide and she got the role of Lucy and she RUINED EVERYONE’S LIVES WHAT THE FUCK TESSA WHERE DID THESE EMOTIONS COME FROM
  • Also she literally didn’t mention to anyone she was in the show, Nova and Leo brought it up bc they were in it too lol
  • NOVA
  • TAKES MUSICALS
  • THE WAY SHE TAKES EVERYTHING ELSE IN LIFE
  • V E R Y  S E R I O U S L Y
  • Life is a competition and there is literally nothing more competitive than auditions holy shit
  • She signed herself up for voice lessons when she was five
  • Like Riley and Farkle had no idea until they were billed for like 3 months of her lessons at a theater school and they were like WTF
  • THEY THOUGHT SHE WAS AT THE CHURCH DOWN THE STREET AT A YOUTH GROUP
  • Okay and Nova is also 900% the kind that when her best friend doesn’t get the role she wants, she’s just like “Don’t worry I can get you rat poison!!!”
  • She’s like Sharpay but nicer, do you feel me
  • If Sharpay and Gabriella had a love child, it’d be this girl
  • She’s that bitch at dance rehearsal that is like “Ugh warm up stretches are the worst!!!!” and then very easily just pulls her leg over her fucking head as you struggle to breathe without falling over and pulling something
  • She can rap Guns and Ships perfectly it’s the funniest fucking thing
  • Always running for drama club president and stuff
  • Ends up marrying a Broadway actor that she toootally hadn’t been fangirling over for years lol
  • L e o
  • Is such a mess of a human being
  • Because he really doesn’t actually care at all about theater but he feels like he needs to bc his family is so crazy about it
  • And it’s so funny like he’s sleep through shows and movies and miss important plot details and have to bullshit scenes that he liked most when his fam asks lol
  • And he SHOULD NOT DANCE
  • HE IS FAR TOO KLUTZY
  • He’ll be in his usual attire of backwards baseball cap, vintage welding googles or some shit, and he’ll be carrying like a three books and a fucking knife collection
  • And someone will be like “LEO I BET YOU CANT DO A BACK FLIP INTO A PIROUETTE” and he’s immediately like “YOU WANNA FUCKIN BET” and tries to do it without dropping anything so Farkle’s in the back yelling “sON NO” and it never ends well okay
  • Anyway so his freshman year of high school, Nova, Tessa, and his best friend/girlfriend Skyler literally fucking bully him into joining the drama club
  • Because 1) It’s always funny seeing him trying to dance but also 2) SHIT he’s actually a great singer and actor what the fuck they NEED you LEo
  • But like. They literally bully him into this omfg
  • Tessa’s decided since she’s a junior she’s allowed to make her freshman sibling’s life hell lol but she doesn’t actually do anything that will actually hurt him or upset him you know what I mean
  • But like he’ll be minding his own business and then Tessa is jokingly slamming him into a locker telling him that he’ll never stop being a dork unless he does theater
  • Or she’ll be like ‘You have to listen to me you’re freshman scum and I am the Upperclass Overlord JOIN THE DAMN DRAMA CLUB”
  • Nova will fill his locker with passive aggressive notes insulting/challenging him like ‘you must be a wuss’ or ‘I bet you won’t try out because you have no talent’ and stuff like that
  • And he mentioned them to her and she’s like ‘Oh my God who would ever say such horrible things to my dear, precious brother’ and he’s just like ‘NOVA I CAN RECOGNIZE YOUR HAND WRITING CUT IT OUT” lmao
  • “Skyler please listen to me I really don’t want to try out for the drama club!”
  • “Well Leo I really don’t want to make out with you right now! Should I take one for the team or go home?”
  • “WhAT thE FuCK”
  • So eventually after like 2 months of this he gives up and decides to audition
  • And he’s like “Maybe…I’ll just sabotage my own audition so they don’t cast me as anything”
  • And he got really excited about that plan
  • But then
  • Since he is his father’s son
  • None of his plans can ever work out for him
  • So everything he did to sabotage himself, something else happened that prevented him from looking bad
  • It was so fucking funny to the girls bc they knew he was trying so hard to suck and it just wasn’t working lmao
  • They cast him as Moritz in Spring Awakening lmao
  • And after that, everyone in school wouldn’t stop talking about how great a performer he was, so he was like…fuck I’m stuck with this until I graduate aren’t I
  • He was
  • On his last day of high school, Riley and Farkle go into his room to have an emotional ‘Oh my God our baby’s graduating” talk after they had one with Nova
  • But they open the door and
  • Leo’s got a fucking sacrificial alter or some shit set up, and a metal trashcan with a fire blazing in it right in front of it
  • And he’s throwing into it all his scripts, costume pieces, makeup and tap shoes he’s gathered up over the years, laughing manically
  • When he notices his parents he freezes and they just stare at each other for like five whole minutes
  • But that took his concentration away from the fire, which then got too big and catches his fucking sleeve on fire
  • So he’s now jumping around trying to put it out and that causes him to bang into the fucking alter, knocking it down and putting a fucking hole in his floor.
  • Riley’s just like “why couldn’t we have just walked in on you watching porn” at the same time Farkle  goes “why are you like this” lmao
  • They never speak of that again
  • He still gets dragged along on family musical trips tho lmao
  • riarkle kids why are you doing this to me

OKAY SO IT’S 4:30 AM AND I JUST HAD A HEART ATTACK AND LET ME TELL YOU WHY

You know how tumblr mobile does this thing now if you scroll past a video it will start the audio? Well I’m scrolling through old posts on this blog because I can’t sleep and I scroll past a video without noticing so I’m zoned out when I hear bill say “DID YA MISS ME?” AND I SCREAMED SO HARD I THINK I WOKE MY BROTHER UP LIKE OH MY GOD I THOUGHT I WAS ABOUT TO DIE

Haha, I use to be so in love|

I plugged my camera into my Macbook for the first time in over a year because I needed to import some clips that I just recorded. The only things that popped up were old selfies and pictures of my past relationship. Haha, I use to be so in love.

Looking back it’s so silly, how did I ever skype anyone until the wee hours of night, or wake up and the first thing I do is text them good morning. As many hours as I work now, sleep is a gift! Lol the first thing I do when I wake up is check my farm and collect my bonus coins for the day. Can never miss a day of bonus coins. I can’t buy myself a 40 dollar shirt let alone get someone a 600 dollar wallet just because they like the brand. 

I’m so silly. Lol, if that’s what being in love does to me, dear god help, that it doesn’t ever happen again xD Good times though, looking back on it now, I was so naive. There were so many obvious signs but I guess you really do get blinded by love. 

Because maybe it’s dumb to look for the signs from the universe! Maybe the universe has better things to do. I mean, dear God, I hope it does. You know how many signs I’ve gotten, that I should or shouldn’t be with someone? And where has it gotten me? Maybe there aren’t any signs. Maybe… maybe a locket’s just a locket, and… a chair’s just a chair. Maybe we don’t have to give meaning to every little thing. And maybe we don’t… Maybe we don’t need the universe to tell us what we really want. Maybe we already know that. Deep down.

imagine the smithsonian finding letters to bucky from steve:

they’re one sided and steves copies from bucky were lost so they contain fragmented replies that news sites speculate upon and fics are written about:

*no I didn’t lick the stamps so you can calm down but if it’s any consolation I did carry them in my pocket for half a day
*if you keep using socks for that they’ll stay stiff
*why would I wear your jacket? it’s not the right size & I won’t melt in the rain, bucky
*in response to the question about sleeping problems, yes & thinking about that only makes them worse
*I do remember that day, mainly because of a black eye and what happened after we went to your place. your ma still hasn’t forgotten by the way. I can tell by the looks she gives me.
*that was the night we spent on couch cushions on the floor, woke up all stiff
*I can’t breathe very well since you’ve been gone, you know how much it kills me to admit that so don’t rub it in 
*I didn’t mean to say that your handwriting is messy, your letters are just late is all. blame the postman
*heard someone humming that song you used to sing in the bath, it’s stuck in my head now so thanks for that
*can’t believe you messed the lyric up. it’s “I’d work and toil all day just to come home to you” or something along those lines, not foil

after steve comes out of the ice he tries to get them back because dear god they’re embarrassing and he can remember exactly what each one was about. some were innocent, most were not and he knew back then that bucky could fill in the blanks on his own. 

years later the winter soldier visits the smithsonian and tries his damnest to read between the lines, maybe he’s imagining things. maybe they were actually innocent. he takes six brochures with steve’s face on the front, one of which has a photocopy of a skinnier shorter steve. that one is his favorite.

So there it is
The end of the world
God’s riding down from on high with the four horsemen in his wake
He’s draped in the light of holy armor and surrounded by a whole host of seraphim
He’s the got fire of justice in one hand and the lightning of retribution in the other
And just as God’s about to shake this metaphysical etch-a-sketch we call creation
St.Brigid of Ireland,patron saint of poets and blacksmiths,puts a hand on his shoulder and says, “Holy Father,I know you think it’s time for everything to end. I know that I should be back with the rest of the heavenly host welcoming the saved home to their rest. But,Father…you gotta see something.”
See,the Lord knows you don’t disobey your father unless it’s all you got left
So he follows St. Brigid and they go to a poetry slam
Somewhere in Georgia or Texas
Some small town no one remembers
A place where the people believe that

A poet walks up to the stage
He says,“New shit,” and God laughs because what the fuck does that even mean?

The poet says,

Man builds a house
Calls it a church
Says,“God lives here,”
Say,“you better come visit,”
As if God gets lonely
But the poets
They build a church
Call it a stage
Say, “it’s the only place I ever felt holy,”
Say, “God doesn’t live here…but he visits sometimes.Sits in the back and he never judges but when he does he always gives tens.”

And then he bows his head and says

Dear God,
Forgive me and my friends the poets
I know we haven’t been to church in a while
But it’s not that we don’t believe
You gotta trust me on that
We’re just worried the blood on our hands looks too much like your sons.
We don’t want to put you through that again
Probably don’t seem like we’re praying as much as we used to but that’s because we realized that poetry and prayer
Are the same thing
It’s all people who aren’t looking for answers
Just hoping someone is asking the same questions
The poets
Their holy don’t work the same way as the rest of us humble sinners
They don’t know how to hold on it,can never seem to keep it
They just want everyone else to be bright
And you gotta see ‘em pray,God
All out loud
Sometimes with their voices
Always with their bodies
Playing survival songs on hearts stretched like too taut violin strings
It’s not always pretty
But it’s the bravest thing I’ve ever seen
And ya gotta admit,Dear Lord
That it’s some kind of miracle
The way they can fit all the light behind a microphone
