  • rich person: I have no concept of classes outside of my own
  • rich person: so when I picture welfare my immediate reaction is to see someone from my class using it
  • rich person: because I never see any other socioeconomic classes.
  • rich person: which is why I'm furiously against welfare, because I have enough therefore everyone else must have enough too.

okay, so modern au enjolras who loves music, like completely adores it and he is super pretentious about music. he loves the way that music can affect people and change their ideas.
unfortunately his friends have an… interesting taste in music…

courfeyrac is an avid lady gaga fan - this enj struggles to deal with but at least she’s a good person, his taylor swift phase was so much worse
combeferre has a very eclectic taste and listens to like medieval lyre/jazz fusion - enj doesn’t understand it but at least it’s a break from pop
bahorel listens to one direction and then like, black sabbath… there is no in between - he struggles to understand ‘rel at the best of times and his taste in music is part of that
jehan… don’t even get him started on jehan

but it is grantaire that bothers him the most, grantaire is an incredibly intelligent man but he appears to be labouring under the impression that 90s britpop is an acceptable thing to listen to… he listens to wonderwall unironically and that is something that enjolras cannot accept

but taire keeps playing it just to be obnoxious, singing loudly and purposefully out of tune - enj knows it’s purposeful because taire is actually an excellent singer

he moves on from wonderwall to blur but enj still thinks that it’s too much

but apparently, enj doesn’t hate britpop as much when taire is quietly singing a song about how gorgeous he thinks enj is as he wraps him up in his arms and tucks him against his chest, pulling the covers over them and kissing his forehead softly

Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself. Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less me. Because I didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be cared for and valued. I wanted to be wanted. So for years, I sacrificed myself for the sake of making other people happy. And for years, I suffered. But I’m tired of suffering, and I’m done shrinking. It’s not my job to change who I am in order to become someone else’s idea of a worthwhile human being. I am worthwhile. Not because other people think I am, but because I exist, and therefore I matter. My thoughts matter. My feelings matter. My voice matters. And with or without anyone’s permission or approval, I will continue to be who I am and speak my truth. Even if it makes people angry. Even if it makes them uncomfortable. Even if they choose to leave. I refuse to shrink. I choose to take up space. I choose to honour my feelings. I choose to give myself permission to get my needs met. I choose to make self-care a priority. I choose me.

honestly…. I’ve been very patient this volume. I’ve given the m&k the benefit of the doubt so many times on multiple subjects and they have my unyielding support with just about anything they choose to do with their show.

But if Blake doesn’t talk about Yang next episode heads are going to ROLL

Alan Watts (INFJ) on Carl Jung (INFJ):

“I think this is the most important thing in Jung. He was able to point out that to the degree you condemn others and find evil in others, you are to that degree unconscious of the same thing in yourself, or at least of the potentiality of it.

There can be Eichmanns and Hitlers and Himmlers just because there are people who are unconscious of their own dark sides, and they project that darkness outward into, say, Jews or Communists or whatever the enemy may be.

They say: ‘There is the darkness, it is not in me.’ And therefore because the darkness is not in me, I am justified in annihilating the enemy whether it be with atom bombs or gas chambers or what not.

But to the degree that a person becomes conscious that the evil is as much in himself as in the other, to this same degree he is not likely to project it onto some scapegoat, and commit the most criminal acts of violence upon other people.

Now this is to my mind the primary thing that Jung saw. That in order to admit and really accept and understand the evil in oneself, one had to be able to do it without being an enemy to it. As he put it, you had to accept your own dark side. (…)

All conflict, Jung was saying, all opposition has its resolution in an underlying unity.

You cannot understand the meaning of ‘to be’ unless you understand the meaning of ‘not to be’. You cannot understand the meaning of ‘good’ unless your understand the meaning of ‘evil.’”

Alexander sat down next to her and they both remained silent for a few minutes. They had not talk for years now and none of them knew where to start. Mabel couldn’t help but blame him. He was the one who stopped sending her letters and not answering her calls. If she knew where he lived, she probably would’ve knock at his door but again, secrets.

The growth of terms like “mlm” (as in gay + bi men) and “Achillean” are interesting because it seems to mainly be from trans men who are imposing an artificial similarity from women’s gay/bi communities into gay male spaces when the histories and relationships between gay and bi men are like completely different because gender (and therefore gay communities) isn’t just two complimentary groups that Are just mirrors of each other

It’s like basically reinventing the wheel but like a wheel that doesn’t actually fit onto the car

This was gonna be digital but my pressure sensitivity was borked and I was too lazy to restart my computer. I ended up needing to restart it anyway to work on animations. Too lazy to redo the drawing digitally. :T

Also the reason I don’t do traditional art very much anymore is really obvious here, I’ve got shaky hands. The lineart on this is wonk. :T intensifies

You cannot tell me that if Anakin didn’t fuck everything up & the twins + Padme survived that there wouldn’t be a moment with the twins where their understanding of how babies are made is “two people love each other very much then poof baby” that they wouldn’t go to Obi Wan asking for a sibling because Padme said no.

Lilith aspects🌹💔

(This is a masterpost and will be updated as regularly as possible.)

When I first began studying astrology I was intensely curious about liliths and their power. Incidently, I recently found a strong lilith placement in my chart (I never noticed it, despite frequenting my chart) that validated the reason I was so curious about their mysterious nature. There is little information about Lilith aspects, because of its nature, therefore I am creating a masterpost about them to the extent of my knowledge.

➡Lilith conjuct ascendant (Lilith rising) Extremely strong placement, because it directly intercepts the 1st house and impacts the individual with the affects of Lilith, directly. People with this placement are powerfully magnetic, effortlessly exude raw sexual energy, and become the object of desire in other’s eyes immediately. This is due to Lilith’s volatile energy, hypnotic sensuality, and the air of mystery the individual presents.  It is known as one of the sexiest placements to possess.

➡Other aspects/positions that can significantly affect how this energy is represented:

✨Leo rising
✨Libra rising
✨Virgo rising
✨Aquarius rising
✨Aries rising/sun
✨All water ascendents (especially pisces)

✨Strong or afflicted Uranus/Neptune placements
✨Venus conjuct asc.
✨12th house/ significant pluto placements (i.e., venus, mars, moon……maybe mercury (art of seduction, persuasion, manipulation, charismatic)

THAT HANGE ZOE DIDN’T TRY TO DECEIVE HIM LIKE ERWIN DID.

THAT HANGE ZOE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO WORK WELL WITH LEVI DESPITE HIM HAVING A 2/10 SCORE ON TEAMWORK.

THAT HANGE ZOE SAID THAT LEVI HAS A ROUGH WAY OF SPEAKING, BUT IT DOESN’T REFLECT HIS TRUE FEELINGS.

THAT HANGE ZOE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO WEAR THE  “BLACK JACKET” OF WHICH ISAYAMA SAID “ Usually, the jacket that was left there, it was usually worn by someone else…”.

THAT HANGE ZOE HAS BEEN STATED TO HAVE GREASY MESSY HAIR, YET THE CLEAN FREAK GRABBED IT IN THE ANIME.
