You can fall back into comfort and run back to people in the past but just know that nothing will grow there. You’ll be comfortable and you may feel safe but it’s not real, it’s an illusion. Or you can break the mould, put an end to your problems by focusing on improving yourself which will then open you up to more opportunities in life and a better lifestyle all together. It’s that simple. I know what you’re going to choose because you’re more into comfort than change, I just hope you can live with the realities of your decisions. Peace.
the pannels of sasusaku moments we try to show to antis are not to make the conclusion that sasuke loves or has a crush on sakura. they are there to be a demonstration that sasukecares about her and that she is someone dearing to him.
sasuke’s feelings did not come from nothing. they had a special friendship and it was only developed into love of both parts after a LONG LONG time and to be clear it was not even love from sasuke’s side in 699 when he taps her forehead, it was a signal of deeply care, but not really love maybe just the perspective of it.
their love story is between 699-700 in which they travelled together, married and had a child. the details we don’t have, such as how sakura got to travel with him (in gaiden it says she chases after him but after what consideration? how did sakura made this decision?), how they actually started to evolve from care to love and how sasuke asked her hand on marriage (if it even was like this or just a natural proposal) etc.
edit: so people didn’t understand what i was saying (sigh). in short words:
sasuke cared about sakura in part 1 but not in a romantic way, he was too focused on his revenge;
after the war he saw the potential to trully love sakura but needed to clear his head before and soon as they travelled together and got to know each other again after all the hardships, sasuke could finally be able to love her in a romantic way and the way she deserved;
if you want to think that he loved her before 699 it’s fine we can all live peacefully because that does not change what happened in the end.
hey dude why haven't you learned how to drive yet?? i know you're nervous but it wears off :)

The best leaders lead their people through example.
And that is exactly what Zuko did even before becoming Fire Lord.
● Because Zuko became the embodiment of sacrifice and redemption; because he became a living example that people can change despite what they’ve been taught to believe their entire lives.
● Because Zuko was brave. Because Zuko had always been brave, even when he thought he wasn’t. Because it takes a special kind of courage to face yourself and your demons; It takes courage to forgive yourself and ask for forgiveness of those you wronged.
● Because Zuko became a living example that one must always choose to do what is right, even if it means going against your very own family.
● And because Zuko became a shining beacon of hope and a chance for a new beginning (and perhaps even redemption too?) for many people, and I think that’s beautiful. I think Zuko is beautiful and too precious and I will defend him until my dying day.
“You have been told to follow your dreams, but what if it’s a stupid dream? For instance, Stephen Colbert of 25 years ago lived at 2015 North Ridge with two men and three women in what I now know was a brothel. He dreamed of living alone—well, alone with his beard—in a large barren loft apartment, with lots of blonde wood, wearing a kimono, with a futon on the floor and a Samovar of tea constantly bubbling in the background, doing Shakespeare in the street for homeless people. Today, I am a beardless suburban dad who lives in a house, wears no-iron khakis and makes Anthony Weiner jokes for a living, and I love it because, thankfully, dreams can change. If we’d all stuck with our first dream, the world would be overrun with cowboys and princesses”
-Stephen Tyrone Colbert.
Future AU where Kaz and Inej are actually known as the King of the Barrel and his Wraith queen and they rule with an iron fist and are the most feared people and you don’t want to cross them and have your business practices discovered to be wronging people. Because he only knows mercy when she advises it and she’s not very merciful to those who have none in their hearts.

Your rolls are not “glorious”
Sweat trapped under rolls is not good.
Stretch marks are natural, but when they are bold purple, and painful and tearing, its because your skin was not meant to expand so much, so quickly.
Neither are chafed thighs, red and raw just because of walking around too much, without coverings. Maybe because it’s summer and you got a new bathing suit. Maybe a dress or skirt. Its uncomfortable for a reason.
A bad diet very often will give you bad acne, which means that when you sweat, it stings badly.
Your knees hurting because you have trouble carrying the extra weight on your body, which was not meant to be there, is also for a reason.
Take time to notice that none of this is created by a “fat phobic” society.
This is your body telling you to STOP.
Stop eating so much .
To lose weight , you don’t need a gym or expensive foods.
Just think about what you put into your body.
Don’t treat your body like a trash bin.
Unhealthy foods aren’t “bad”, its just that they are treats, which you don’t need every day.
Drink water regularly, count the soda as a treat, because it’s not free of calories.
Lastly, stop pushing this shitty mentality that its OKAY TO GIVE UP ON YOURSELF TO CHILDREN.
A decent percentage of users on here are children!

They have enough to deal with without fucking ADULTS telling them to inflict this pain on themselves.
I overheard a a young man speaking outside of my apartment window today,
“They expect us to just get dressed and go to work and live life as if it was any other day. 50 people were just murdered in cold blood and another 200+ injured. Yet, we all just carry on because we’re still alive. That isn’t a normal thing, but somehow we’ve normalized it ‘Oh, just another mass shooting, what were the stipulations this time?’ When are people going to finally realize that something needs to be done, that something needs to be changed. Because, we can just keep living like this. I don’t want my future kids and their kids to live in fear like I have to. Can’t go to the movies, can’t go to a concert, can’t go to school, without the thought looming in the back of your head. All around, this world is fucked up right now and I know we weren’t put here to act like fools and put up with all this bullshit. We were put here to love, respect, and encourage one another to do good and I just can’t stand when people can’t even do those simple things.”
I couldn’t agree more, which is why I wanted to share this with all of you.
Just a question: we've seen you answer how the Zutara relationship would've worked for both Zuko and Katara. So how, in your opinion, would that relationship have affected the world? Since Katara would've married Zuko at some point, she would've become wife of the Fire Lord, as well as the first member of Fire Nation royalty to be of another nationality, let alone a different bender. I've never seen ANYTHING relating this aspect of their relationship, so I was curious what you thought.
Hello my dearest anon! Disquieted here!
Thank you SO much for this question; it’s one of the very best we’ve gotten! I’ll try my best to do it justice. Be warned though, I’ve written something similar to an essay as reply, so read ahead at your own peril! 🙈 Dalz will be answering your ask separately later
on as well giving you her own pov on the matter.
Also, please keep in mind that I always pretend LoK never happened, that these are merely personal ramblings and should not be taken to heart, and that there are some things we
must discuss before getting to the center of your question. So, without further ado….!
Part I: War is war.
I’ve never doubted that the reconstruction of a
nation, (let alone the entire world!), wouldn’t come with opposition and various
difficulties for all parties involved.
I saw this in an episode of Transparent and it inspired me to write a little blurb about it.
General cis/queer public. We as women of trans experience are fully aware that we are unable to become pregnant, and if you are aware that we are trans, you should know this too. What this does not mean is that we are, for lack of better terms, a walking cum dump with breasts. Granted, I’m speaking for myself because I’m sure there are girls who are neither phased nor bothered by this inability, but there are so many that are.
When I go through my gender confirmation procedure, I in no capacity am doing so for sex. I shouldn’t have to say that, but some people need to read it. I’m not spending over twenty thousand dollars and a year of intense recovery so that someone can feel like they’re having sex with a ciswoman with no need to worry about “knocking me up”.
“When you’re sleeping with other girls in the back of your head, you have that worry but with you….it’s great you don’t have to worry about that and you can go all out”
To make such a statement to a woman of trans experience is very cruel, inconsiderate and void of any concern for our inherent value as people and what more we are beyond our procedures. Some of us are elated that we don’t have to “worry” about not having menustral cycles and not being able to carry children, but for so many others we ache and mourn of what we never had….because those are parts of our lives that nothing can ever, ever change and that we must painfully swallow, accept and move passed.
When you hold a thought as such, you take our transition and turn it into something based in your own desire and pleasure, removing the most crucial element of self care for our own Good and stability…when really many of our transisitins have never been about you. They’ve been unapologetically, about us and becoming our steering selves, all others bring diregarded.
Don’t be so selfish, so foolish, so ignorant. Please.
Hiya!! It's me again and I passed the freaking math test :D sooooo... What would the batboy's reaction to Bruce bringing in a new little sister??
Congratulations! I knew you could do it!
-They would all be at least a little excited to meet her because it’s a change and everyone can use a little excitement in their lives
-if it were a little kid, they would be a bit more wary because bit all of them are great with kids (Jason is surprisingly good with babies for some reason) but they would all begrudgingly admit that she was adorable
-if she could talk/was somewhat older, they would try to get more familiar with her so they could maybe have a somewhat normal sibling relationship with at least one person
-Damian is a bit bitter because now he’s not the youngest, not the most “interesting”. This would be emphasised if the girl was Bruce’s biological daughter and then he would definitely butt heads with her over who is the “true heir”
-the girls are all relieved and try to steer the new girl away from the boys because “they suck and you should avoid them at all costs. We’re cooler anyways.“ The boys pretend to be offended by this
Hello there ! My name’s Maria. I was born in Amiens, France a lovely
town in the north of Paris. I’m currently living in Sofia , Bulgaria as a
psychology major. Why ? I’m doing it because you can change people’s
lives with it, it can help you understand so much about treating
different kinds of behavior . It explains how I feel and how I act and I
love applying it. But that is the point of Psychology… to discover
why people do things and I want to be part of that! I currently work as
barista … good tips.
I like pets a lot , mainly cats. I watch a lot of TV series , anime ,
YouTube ecc… so from there comes my tendency to fangirl and rant
(sorry ,trying to minimize it ). My music taste changes but right now I
mostly listen MCR (even though they broke my heart ): ) , Guns and roses
and No Resolve. Writing , art and photography are my current passions
with swimming close behind. Anything you want to know ? Just contact me !
Anyone is free to contact me but preferably between 16 and 20 years old . Don’t be shy ! Hope to hear from you soon <3 !
Hey Con! Hope you are doing well :) could i ask your advice? Im trying to move from michigan to LA super soon but im getting push back from my parents and friends to stay for a year before going to save up but I know i'll just get stuck and not go. I had 4 friends going with me originally but their money fell through so im all alone now. Its been awhile since you moved out there but do you have advice for a hopeful new californian?
Listen to your family and take your time and save up. Do absolutely everything you can do where you are so that when you go, it’s not a leap, just a step. You wanna make this as easy as possible for yourself. Patience, because you have time. There’s a romantic feel to packing up your shit and just going, but life isn’t a movie, and LA is fucking expensive my dude. Give yourself flexibility and the most important tool you can have: time. You don’t want to be in LA anon the verge of homelessness just scraping by. That’s not a life you want and will actually be a step back rather than forward.
Be prepared. Be honest with yourself. Set goals. Save money. Prepare your plan, like visualize it as much as possible. Do your research about neighborhoods, jobs, and cost of living beforehand. I spent 3 years prepping and honestly I would’ve done way more in hindsight. I still feel like I’m catching up 2 years later, and that’s not always fun.
I think moving for yourself is preferable to moving with friends, although that may just be a me thing. Friends are great but you don’t want to be tied to the lives of others because things can and will change a whole lot when you move.
But your parents have the right idea with the saving of the money. Learn to be independent in baby steps, rather than 1 terrifying leap. Practice being independent at home, not only for your confidence, but for your family’s as well. You don’t want to leave without their full support, trust, and confidence. Parental reassurance is so nice to have. It’s nice to have a family that respected my hustle because they saw it happen in front of them for years before I was out doing it on my own.
You obviously can’t prepare for everything, but you can do so much now that’ll set you up nicely later. I did so much and in hindsight I still wish I did more. Time may not feel like it’s on your side, but it always is, my friend.
Last tidbit. Learn to get away from the idea of “I’ll be happy when…” That’s a lie you tell yourself when you’re not happy now to numb you. No city, place, or person can make your life better. No city can “make” you, and especially with LA, if you’re moving wanting to “make it” in the big city, that big city will most likely eat you up and spit you back out. You have to write your own script and know who you are so you can tune out all the noise. Every place has noise and distractions, but LA distractions are a very specific kind.
Know yourself. Get to know yourself. Practice being yourself. By the time you’re truly ready, it won’t be scary. You won’t feel like you need permission. You’ll be focused.
75 years ago on this very day, one of the four mysterious Liverpool legends was born. A lad called by his middle name, not his first to avoid family confusion, a quirk that showed everyone from the beginning that he was to be no ordinary boy. A love of music sparked his heart from early on, a passion that would forever change not only his life, but the life of his future bandmates and the world as we know it. One summer afternoon in 1957, he met his best friend, his partner in crime, another teenage Liverpool hooligan named John Lennon, and together, the two of them would write songs that would cement them in history as the best songwriters who ever lived. This boy and his band would go on to rock the world a million times over and will never cease to steal the hearts of his fans everywhere. He is everything the perfect man is to be: handsome, charming, intelligent, caring, sweet, and incredibly loving among many of his other admirable qualities. He is an amazing husband and father, and the coolest grandfather ever to live! Animal rights activist, nature activist, charitable humanist, beliefs that make him an inspiration to us to make our earth a better place. His music picks us up, strengthens us, and gives us will to live when we come upon our hardest times. He is loved by so very many of us and he continues to make my every day happy and whole. Who is this very man we speak of? It is none other than the one, the only, the fabulous PAUL McCARTNEY!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL!!! On your birthday last year, I wished that I would get tickets to your one and only show in Ontario and literally 2 days later, my wish came true! One of my only dreams in life was to see you in concert at least once and my dream came true last July 21st. You’ll never know how much it made my soul fly to see you on that stage. You make me so happy to be alive and breathing on this earth just for the sake of knowing that you’re on it too! Your music inspires me each and everyday to keep practicing my skills because maybe one day, I can change the lives of others with my music just as you did to me. As my wish came true last year, I’ll make another one for old time’s sake: this year, I’m going to wish that you come back to Canada again so I can see you once more! Happs my man, I hope your birthday is the best yet with many more to come. xxx 💗 💖 💘 💗 💖 💘 💗 💖 💘
