because they bring happiness to my heart

This powerful image is from one of the memorials last night for 16-year-old Maren Sanchez.

Maren was stabbed to death in her high school stairwell on the morning of the prom. She was killed for allegedly turning down a young man’s invitation to be her prom date.

Her classmates paid tribute by dressing up, and bringing out the gown she would have worn to the prom. Even though this memorial was a sorrowful and traumatic event, the students smiled through their tears for the camera because… Maren would have wanted them to be happy on their prom night.

I grew up in Milford, CT, and I live about 15 minutes away from Jonathan Law High School. My partner attended JLHS and I have friends with family members who currently attend.

With the Sandy Hook shooting in December 2012, I can’t believe that here we are again, just a year later, with another tragedy in a Connecticut school.

My heart goes out to all of those affected.

Yall wanna know what keeps me up at night? The fact that Calum uses tumblr. And I’m not talking about the “OGIUDHGS I HOPE HE HASNT SEEN MY BLOG” stuff. I’m talking about all the positivity about him on here. I always see people defending him and editing whitewashed photos of him to bring back his brown skin, the way it should be, and just overall being so kind and wonderful toward him and it honestly warms my heart but what makes my heart jump into my throat is what if Calum sees it too? What if he sees these posts and genuinely smiles at each and every one of them because he sees how appreciated he is on this side of the fandom and he sees the photos giving him back his brown skin and he just gets so? Happy? And that smile comes onto his face, the one we all love, the one where he smiles so hard that he gets little crinkles around his eyes and his cheeks get all big and his eyes light up and his dimples get so deep? Oh my god I need a minute.

jaime_king: Dear Tay- Tomorrow is your birthday and I will be in the air. This picture I took of you brings back the fondest of memories. It captures all of your beauty that I know, that the world knows, in one photograph. You have the uncanny ability to just get straight into the Soul’s of us all in one shot. With your music, you grab the hearts of countless hearts & don’t let go. As my sister, with your irresistible enthusiasm, un-f*cking unbeatable passion and true honesty, feels like home. We have changed the perception of female friendships because somehow, in this crazy world where women want to hurt each other, we have a thoughtful group of friends where we have chosen to love each other through it all, and support our peers along the way & with open arms you bring this to life. Intimately and sincerely, I love you, I am profoundly proud of you, your Light is a rare and brilliant gift. Happy Birthday!!! (Your always sensitive, expository and teary eyed friend;) xo Jaime @taylorswift

The truth is all my poems are disturbing. The truth is I don’t write about happy because when I’m happy, I’m too busy singing. When I’m happy, I’m too busy laughing. When I’m happy, I don’t want to lock myself in my room and bleed onto my notebook. And anyway, no one wants to share their happy. We are greedy with our happy. We hold it to our chests and strangle it between our fingers. It can’t breathe but it is ours and this is enough. That’s why I write about sad. Because sad is 2 for 1 in the bargain bin. Sad is take all you want, there’s plenty to go around. Sad is sit with me and bleed because I’m dizzy from how much this hurts and I could really use a glass of water. Could you bring a glass of water? I’m writing about sad again and my tongue is turning to dust in my mouth. My heart is rotting to ruins in my chest. Think Coliseum. Think Pompeii. Think something much less dramatic and much less glamorous. Think garbage spilling out of a can into an abandoned street and the dawn light is weak and nothing is illuminated and there are no shadows. I’m writing about sad again and my fingers are tired.

“You were amazing up there.” (Avengers Prime #3)

This is my gift for iwritestony, who asked for the classic quote that we all know and love from Avengers Prime (and also not to break her heart XD). So, I bring you only fluff and rainbows, from every outlet of Steve/Tony that I could manage. I hope you like it! Happy SteveTonyFest :)

Happy 28th Birthday, AmazingPhil/Phil Lester!

I’ve been watching Phil’s videos since before or around 2009 and I can’t for the love of me express how much he and his videos mean to me.  I may not know him personally, I may not have even met him (unless you count seeing him across the signing hall at VidCon 2013 haha) but if it wasn’t for him I would’ve not been introduced to the incredible youtube community/family that has become what it is today, I probably wouldn’t be embracing a lot of qualities about myself that are a bit weird or random, and I most certainly would not have the support I have on Tumblr because hahaha I draw him (and Dan) a lot and a lot of people seem to enjoy it and share their love passionately - it brings joy to my lil doodlin’ heart seeing all these people happy.  He’s also shown me what friendship can bring you through his relationship with Dan (and other fellow YouTubers). I can honestly say I’ve experienced something very similar with various people I have grown to love so I really empathise with the two. Seeing them [Dan and Phil] work together or just dork about makes me really happy, even on really bad days. 
But yeah, anyway, Phil is a lovely youtuber who I am thankful for inspiring and motivating me in a number of different ways. I wish him the bestest super awesome amazing birthday. 

If you’re reading this Phil, Keep doing what you’re doing, you’ve impacted my life so I hope this impacts you/your day in some way - even if it just a lil smile or warm fuzzy feeling. Thank you for everything! <3

To one of my all time favorite Youtubers; Jacksepticeye!

I really love Jack. He’s funny, bombastic, cute, silly, and really open with just anyone in general. I love the community he’s built and I am so proud of him and everyone else, cause he’s almost at 5 Million Subs! WOW! 

I stumbled upon falling for Jack and for his channel thanks to my best friend about 5ish months ago. When I first watched his Happy Wheels vids, I couldn’t stop laughing. Later on, I’ve come to realize Jack really made my days when they were really low. Just pulling up a new vid and listening to him always brings a smile on my face, whether it be because of the jokes he’s making, the reactions he does, or just simply Jack being Jack.

Please never stop being you, Jack. Never stop doing what you love doing most. You really are a unique individual that has touched the hearts of literally millions.

It’s an honor to watch you and be a fan <3

Tadashi is here”

First post of the year!!!

I label myself as a traditional artist, digital is a real struggle for me, so I decided to make a quick practice with digital because I suck at it, and this is what came out from it….it’s also my very first time doing this kind of little comics…so, yeah…

Just drawing little Hamadas because they give me life and at the same time they broke my heart into tiny little pieces :)

BTW I know it looks odd, but I like to think that Tadashi brings comfort to his baby brother by rubbing his ear. That’s something I used to do when I was little when I was scared or worried so picturing Dashi doing that to calm down Hiro….I just… *gross sobbing*

Hope you like it, and (super later) Happy New Year everyone!

Someone Bring Out the Confetti and Party Hats and Those Little Whistles that Go FVROOOOOOO when You Blow Into Them.

Because “Horrortale Teaser” made the Front Page of Newgrounds, people. Woo woo woo.

Wooooooo.

Shall I take a moment to thank everyone from the bottom of my pitpat heart? I think I shall. Thank you for your comments, your support, your encouragement in making this happen. I really, really pushed for quality and content for you guys, and I’m happy not to have failed you. Horrortale would never have existed if it weren’t for you.

Now onto business.

I’ve received a plethora of questions, namely “when will the full game come out”. To celebrate I’ve put together a short FAQ together hopefully answering most of these questions. If you still have any do not hesitate to send me a message ^^

Woo woo woo, guys. Woo woo woo.

Today (August 23rd, 2014) I’ve reached 2000 followers here in Tumblr. I’ve never expected to have so many followers, meet so many interesting people and make such wonderful friends here. I really treasure each one of you that is here with me sharing the love for Satoshi, Nino, Ohmiya and Arashi since January 2013, when I created my blog. Our feelings for these awesome men united us and this is something very precious to my heart. All I want to say is THANK YOU, my dear followers, for multiplying the love and the happiness. And, of course, THANK YOU, Arashi (and especially Ohmiya), for being the beautiful bridge that connects all of us. All my love to you! ♥

Damn you, Peter and Gwen.

      
        Being a fan of Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy’s love story is like committing suicide. It’s like eating a buffet when you’re on a diet or eating tons of sweets when you have diabetes. You know you’ll regret doing it but you do it anyway because it brings you happiness, it makes you smile like an idiot while in the process of being in that moment, then get your heart broken in the end, and cry like wimp while asking yourself why the hell did you even fall for it. 


        I know what I was going into. I know how and when it ends. I know it was not a happy ending. But it didn’t matter to me, I couldn’t, I could not help it. Spiderman thought us about choices, and in that moment that was my choice. I chose to fall in love with Peter and Gwen’s love story and accepted the fact that I will be the one who’ll be left hurt in the end.


Damn you Spiderman, 
and your web, 
for not saving Gwen. 

And damn you Gwen Stacy, 
Damn you for dying. 

P.S. 
I’ll always be a fan of your tragic love story. 
No matter how much it made me sad. 


I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me.

Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more…
