being an actual girl for a change

Marco is a Trans Girl - The Megapost 2.0

So you’ve likely seen my big post on the theory that Marco Diaz from Star vs The Forces of Evil is a Trans Girl. It was made back in July of 2016 when Season 2 was just starting, and since then a lot of things have changed and we now know a lot more about what’s going on behind the scenes.

This post is meant to be an updated explanation of Trans Girl Marco theory, but now more in line with how things are actually happening. The gist of it being that Marco Diaz is coded as a closeted transgender girl.  Expect less theorizing and more meta talk. I’ll be going over all the clues that indicate Marco is trans, as well as how the starcrew came to the desicion as Marco developed as a character.

I can’t give enough thanks to the members of the crew such as @arythusa and @hug-bees​, whom have both done as much as they possibly can to communicate with the show’s growing LGBT fanbase, and given us so much insight into what’s going on

Full post below the cut.

y’know, I know that tumblr gets a lot of shit for being obsessed with a Persephone, how they make her into something that she’s not supposed to be and misinterpret the actual myth etc. etc, but honestly? The fact that the people who are changing Persephone into who she has become to tumblr– the young woman who claims agency over herself and isn’t half so helpless as men would make her out to be, the woman who licks her fingers after every pomegranate seed, the woman who walks into hell with sunlight in her eyes, flowers in her hair, and hard ambition in her heart, –the people who do that are most often teenage girls themselves. It’s an act of reclaiming a piece of what’s practically pop culture and adapting it to the times, just like myths have always meant to be. It’s taking the story of a victimized girl and making it the story of a queen.

@ lesbians who used to ID as bi: you’re good and you’re not reinforcing any biphobic ideologies about bi people “finally choosing a side” or “really just being gay”

@ bi girls who use to ID as lesbians: you’re good and you’re not reinforcing any lesbophobic stereotypes about lesbians “being closed-minded” or “actually being attracted to men”

Figuring yourself out is incredibly difficult and learning new things about yourself and your identity are never a bad thing. I’m proud of you for your journey and your self-discoveries, and I want you to know that you are a good person who deserves love, acceptance, and happiness

like, honestly, maybe i’m being so positive i’m delusional but, to me, that clip can also be interpreted as noora trying to ask sana if she likes yousef

like, this is sana’s pov, and sana is feeling ignored by her friends (for real reasons, i don’t blame her, i think the squad is being shitty too), and she caught noora and yousef talking and immediately felt that that meant they were romantically interested in each other (except that, plot twist: not every boys and girls talking to each other are crushing on each other, just saying).

and now you have noora who, for all we know, might be trying to be like “hey, sanasol, your brother’s friends seemed really nice and charming, do you fancy any one of them maybe? i want to know about you” but sana was hurt and on her guards and saw it as a sign that noora is actually interested in yousef and immediately goes “you don’t want to date him”

so noora is taken aback, obviously. what prompted this? “why not?” what’s happening?

and then sana goes on and on about how muslim boys are no good and don’t want non muslim girls and noora is still a bit taken aback by this sudden change in tone…but she has no chance to clear the misunderstanding sana had about her intentions because sana then changes the topic to willhelm

so yeah, like. idk maybe i’m being too optimistic? but i see everyone freaking out and, honestly, to me, the infos we’ve been given so far do not scream “love triangle”.
it’s sana’s biased view of everything that’s going on and, because this is her season, we’re sharing her bias.

Fanfic Request: You and Gaston happily married with children (all the romantic fluffiness!).

i told myself i needed to write a fic BUT I WAS LIKE “HEADCANONS INSTEAD”

Originally posted by luuuuuke-evans

  • Living in the countryside away from the hustle bustle of village life. Probably a simple far, a place where Gaston can clear his head and be himself without having to worry or put up a facade for others. He loves it really, and he wouldn’t ask for anything else.
    • A place where he can literally put his feet up (You only rub them when you feel like it, he doesn’t actually pressure you to do it). A place where he can enjoy a beer in silence. A place where he can think and be with the things that matter to him.
      • The two of you are always up early enough to watch the sun rise. Imagine sitting beside Gaston, watching the sky change color in front of you. He wraps his arms around you and tugs you closer. A small kiss is placed to your forehead. A few more minutes before your children wake up, he thinks. That’s all he needed. Was a few more minutes alone with you in quiet and peace.
  • Imagine the two of you being lucky enough to have a boy and a girl. 
    • Gaston loves them so freaking much, and actually, they look a lot like him. Dark hair(thick hair), same skin tone and they both happen to have his stubbornness. (Which can cause problems sometimes.) Gaston actually fights you on this sometimes(Playfully) and tells you that they look a lot more like you, “I can see your smile in theirs when they laugh”. Rolling your eyes teasingly, you kiss his lips softly and whisper, “You old romantic.”
      • Imagine him tangling flowers into his daughters hair after she asks him to do it. He knows he’s not good at it but he still tries. She gives him a warm kiss to his cheek when he finishes and she scurries off to show you. “Momma, momma look what papa did!!” 
        You look down at her, smiling brightly, “It’s so pretty.” You brush a stray hair out of her face, “Your papa is so good at that, huh? He puts them in my hair too.”
        She nods happily and looks back at Gaston with an even wider smile. He feels his heart melt.
      • She probably convinces him to let her put flowers in his hair too. Just imagine that. She looks at him sternly, grasps the sides of his face and brings his head down enough so she can reach his hair. You’re standing off to the side, watching him with your son in your lap. Laughing quietly, you urge her to continue. Gaston gives you a playful glare. “I hope those are purple flowers. Purple is a good color for me.” He says to his daughter with a small laugh. Your son joins in eventually and he starts putting flowers in Gaston’s hair, coordinating with his sister as to what color he needed. 
        • Imagine Gaston taking his son hunting. But, while preparing, his daughter comes up and asks if she can come as well. After talking to you, and you agreeing, he takes both of them with him. Imagine his son holding onto the back of Gaston’s jacket and holding his sisters hand while they track. Both of them are super invested.
          • Imagine them coming back and your son is literally about to bounce off the walls because he actually managed to shoot a duck. Your daughter is resting on Gaston’s shoulders as she got tired on the way home.
            You take her carefully, rocking her back to sleep as she stirred with the movement as Gaston places a gentle kiss to your cheek before beaming proudly.
            “He’s going to be a good hunter, just like his father.” He looks at your son, still going on and on about what he had done. You see his father in his personality.
  • Gaston tells them about his time during the War before bedtime. Says it’s their bedtime story. You usually sit and listen.
    • “When I was younger,” He pauses and reflects, “much younger….”
      • Your son gets so excited hearing about it because wow, his father was a hero.
      • Your daughter on the other hand, likes the ending when Gaston explains how he met you and how he fell in love with you after the War and how you bring out the best in him and how much he really does love you and them.
        • “Your mother was so…” He has to think about his word choice, “Beautiful… Gorgeous… She swept me away and hasn’t let me life a day without her beauty ever since.”
  • Monitoring your PDA because your kids do not appreciate it when you kiss each other in front of them.
    • Your son pretends to gag and your daughter yelling at you to “STOP KISSING.”
      • Sufficing on gazes, small kisses to the cheek and Gaston wrapping his arm around your waist to pull you closer until the kids are put to bed.
  • I was about to say ‘don’t get me started on domestic Gaston’ but get me started please.
    • Absolutely a man who tries to cook you breakfast for your birthday but almost burns down the entire house. He just doesn’t cook often enough to know.  He ends up getting help from the kids, and things turn out okay. (He only burned it a little).
      • Probably tries to do the dishes here and there too(Especially when he’s sucking up to you). Always tells you, “That’s a really good workout for your arms. I’m surprised they’re not as big as mine.” You roll your eyes, flexing your arm teasingly. “Aren’t they?”
        • You asking him to help you with cleaning the house and doing the laundry, and for a second he looks at you like “who do you think you’re talking to?” but the glare you give him back gets him to agree and he ends up helping the kids take the laundry outside to dry. 
          • Gaston lifting up your daughter as she pins clothes to the line to dry. Your son tugs on his shirt, begging to be picked up too.
            • When you go out to check on them, the basket of laundry is still sitting there and Gaston is on his back, the two kids on top of him. They’re all laughing. Gaston catches eyes with you, “They’ve got me pinned, (Name). I can’t move!”
  • It’s late at night and the two of you had just put the kids to sleep after what seemed like hours of wrestling them into bed in the first place. You sigh softly, gazing at your love before making your way to the kitchen to clean and put away dishes before bed. Gaston looks at his children a few seconds longer before following you.
    Leaning against the doorway between the kitchen and living space, he smiles slightly, “I know I told you that two children were enough for me, but have you ever thought…?”
    “About having another one?” You asked, finishing his sentence. Tilting your head to the side, you could feel the heat hit your face. “I wouldn’t mind… three more even.”
    He smirks softly, making his way towards you. Kissing the back of your neck and then the shell of your ear, he murmurs to you, “Three? A bit too eager, are you?”

MMMM BOI I HOPE THOSE WERE OKAY. if you liked them, i can make more! Thank you for reading! Reblogs and likes are appreciated! 

When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn’t like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it’, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.

I remember there being a couple of posts for Stormpilot a while back saying that even when they don’t get together Poe can still be gay and we can still get that representation.

I agree with that whole heartedly and want to add on to that statement.

When Finnrey officially gets together, that doesn’t mean Finn has to suddenly be straight. Finn can still be bi, even when he’s with a woman. His sexuality doesn’t change depending on the gender of his partner.

I know I, as a bisexual black girl will definitely still write him as bi.

This has been on my mind for a while now, since Finn being bi is actually kinda important to me.

i.
it’s both inconvenient and incredible that I only know how to write about you in motion. suspended somewhere between the chicago and buffalo airports, I can’t guess where I was as the blue ink smeared itself all over my right hand and the pounding in my skull became more than an annoyance. I think that’s fitting.

ii.
you mentioned once that you dreamed of traveling, taking a plane not going to buffalo or chicago but to a place I can’t pronounce. I think that’s fitting too. I suppose I’m really only able to write about you in motion because when I close my eyes you are never in one place. you’re blurred. driving your white car down that dark road, speeding until I could see myself dying and not caring one bit. nudging a book across a table with scarred palms. eyes that would dart from my cheek to the floor, from my hands to the door.

iii.
if we’re being honest and sincere like I’m trying to be, I’ve yet to discover where in this endlessly rotating cycle I have the means to love you. right here, I don’t. not in the catastrophic way I know that I could. but, at the same time, too many of my atoms have invested themselves into waiting for you than to give up on sunflowers and being more than that girl from the spring before everything changed.

iv.
granted, I’m also positive that there’s more than simply empty space between point a and point b, but neither of us are naive enough to dive into something so hopelessly uncharted. actually, maybe I am. maybe I shouldn’t be.

v.
all I really know is that every night, around 3:30am, I wake up with my palm pressed gently into the area connecting my neck to my shoulder blade. this, this is where we exist. this is where I try to find you.

thoughts on ursula, representation, and fat positivity

the other day i was thinking about how few positive fat characters exist in fiction, particularly fat female characters. as a young fat girl growing up in the late 90s/early 00s, the only fat women i can remember having as role models in media were roseanne barr, queen latifah (particularly her role in chicago), and ursula from the little mermaid.

it’s ursula in particular i wanna talk about here, and why she means to much to me.

it’s true that fat characters, particularly fat women, are always villains/antagonists/negative characters. in this, ursula unfortunately follows suit. she’s a villain, she’s a bad person, she’s evil.

but she’s not evil BECAUSE she’s fat. and there are none (that i can remember) of the usual negative fat stereotypes: eats constantly, lazy, greedy, stupid, dirty/messy, desexualised. on the contrary, she’s active, and ambitious, uses sexual innuendo and is aware of sexual appeal (ie, telling ariel to use ~body language~ while moving suggestively). she’s loud and unapologetic, and never tries to shrink herself, she has an Iconic Disney Villain Song.

it only just occurred to me the other day another level to her that i feel explains further why i was so attached to her (in addition to her being a villain; i have always been attached to fictional villains, esp female villains). there’s a line in “poor unfortunate souls”: “…this one longing to be thinner, that one wants to get the girl, and do i help them? yes indeed.” this shows that ursula has the power to make herself thinner, and she doesn’t. she could make herself thin if she wanted to, and she chooses to be fat anyway.

she does have a thin, stereotypically pretty alter ego, vanessa, but being vanessa isn’t her goal. being vanessa is just a means to an end. she uses the vanessa character just to fuck with ariel.

so we’re shown that ursula 1) has the power to actually make herself thinner, and 2) has the power to appear and live as a thin woman for her life. she doesn’t do either.

the idea that a fat woman can live her life as she is, and not have to change into a thin women even if she could, is really really powerful messaging, especially for a young fat girl being programmed to hate herself and change herself into a thin person at all costs.

fat positive representation matters.

anonymous asked:

Please, please go into the history of media closeting? I would love to open that can of worms, I'm so confused. Have there really been fake babies in the past??

Well, first off, Simon essentially tricked Steve Brookstein, X Factor’s first winner, into marrying someone prematurely because Cowell thought it’d be good publicity. It wasn’t enough, and Brookstein was abandoned. So no, a baby really wouldn’t be a big deal.

I need to go through my archive and find all the good posts, but in the meantime I’d look at these examples first:

“My management guessed that I was gay pretty early on even though I wasn’t out. One day they had a closed door meeting with the record execs and told me that I was coming off gay and that I had to change how I acted. They didn’t care if I actually WAS gay, it was more how I was being perceived. We were marketed towards teenaged girls so there couldn’t be a gay member. That’s when they started to style me and control what I said and did. They used to teach me how to walk “straight” up and down the aisles of a grocery store.”

“For all those who scoff that people who sign up to be controlled and used by record management in this way for the glory of fame and fortune, keep in mind Yee made barely $4,000 during his [three years] involved with the band and often had to cough up money for their own expenses.”

Make sure to read ALL the points under ‘The key differences with Harry and Louis’ situation’

This only scratches the surface, but never forget that these things are done because millions of dollars are at stake. When millions of dollars are at stake, ethics aren’t really a thing. The industry is absolutely ruthless, and there will always be enough proof of that.

AN: It’s so awkward when nearly the whole fandom is in love with the teenage boys on the show and I’m over here obsessing over the DILFs and the girls of the show. So I wrote this to see who else adores the daddies of Riverdale. This will be a series so stick around for more if you love this serpent as much as I. 

Summary: You’re Archie’s old sister and you have a thing for a certain serpent 

Pairing: Reader x FP Jones, Sister!Reader x Archie Andrews, Daughter!Reader x Fred Andrews

Word count: 1,967

Warnings: Well, FP is clearly older than the reader in this fic, none really

It all started when you were younger. Jughead’s Dad came over one night to talk to Jughead. Jughead was round for a sleepover with your younger brother Archie and FP came round because he had some news, about what, you didn’t know. But what you did know was in that moment you realised you were utterly attracted to your younger brother’s best friend’s Dad. That was the moment you knew you were screwed.

So like, even if you don’t ship Supercorp and believe that Kara is actually straight, I don’t understand how anyone can not see Lena thristing after Kara. Like okay, arguably you can say Kara’s feelings are platonic. But there is no way in hell that Lena’s feelings are just platonic. Girl is always throwing hearteyes, gazing longly at Kara, and somehow always seems to have enough time in her extremely busy CEO day to go out to lunch with her reporter friend, Kara Danvers. 

Like I flat out don’t understand how people think Lena is actually straight. 

Marauders Era Headcannons

Ok so no one asked but these are mine. It’s really long, so sorry about that. A lot are based on inspo I’ve seen on Tumblr, tweaked to my liking, which is probably wrong but I just have all these feelings that I’ve gotta get out so here goes. If you see an idea that’s originally yours/you know who’s it is, please message me and I’ll credit your genius.

Peter

  •  Shortest marauder. like hella short. 
  • He wasn’t visibly muscled bc he liked food so damn much, but he wasn’t a creampuff either
  • preferred coffee over tea, and was the person who introduced coffee to Marlene
  • Funniest marauder. Could spin a tale/tell jokes like no one’s business. 
  • Towhead, tanned up nicely, brown eyes
  • was actually very particular about how his hair was combed/parted, but didn’t fuss about it openly *cough cough Sirius*
  • just didn’t get the hype behind Quidditch. sure, he liked it, but he couldn’t imagine letting a sport take over your life like James always did and even Sirius did during season
  • was actually hella perceptive and good at figuring things out about other people
  • like for real I think he was the first one to notice a lot; Remus’ condition, Sirius’ abusive home situation, when Lily’s feelings for James started to change, how James himself started to change
  • Was also the swiftest/sneakiest of all the marauders (rat!) and collected all of their intel
  • didn’t much care about school, and wanted to open a cafe in Diagon Alley after school
  • Had something of a talent for Divinations. Like, wasn’t a seer or anything, but he understood the theory and appreciated the art
  • fell in love with Marlene McKinnon in their 6th year, and her death in the first wizarding war (Mentioned in Lily’s letter to Sirius) is what pushed him over the edge and away from the Order. he was already struggling before then, but she grounded him and gave him something to fight for, and without her he just couldn’t handle anything. grew angry, bitter, resentful, flipped on the order and tore apart his friends. yuck.

  Remus

  • V tall. Tallest Marauder. Tallest student. certified tallboy.
  • Tea and chocolate and jumpers
  • smoker, but only right before and right after the full moon. it helps him cope
  • only swears when he’s well and truly angry
  • Brown hair with hints of copper that grows into a kind of mop. He manages it, somehow, even though it’s way out of style, and it just works
  • pale, brown eyes with gold in them
  • Messy to a fault, but somehow always has what he needs in the moment
  • LOVES quidditch, and attends every match especially because Sirius is a beater and damn just look at his arms
  • is the strategic brains behind the marauders operation. as much of a strategist as Ron is, Remus was too, and he was very good at planning things, especially things like breaking into filches office or putting potions in the Slytherin’s morning pumpkin juice that makes them all turn red and roar spontaneously  
  • Always studied, because if he didn’t put in the work he wouldn’t pull good grades
  • Forms a very close relationship with Lily in their 5th year when they’re both prefect
  • realized he was bi (and totally in love with Sirius) in his 4th year
  • Refuses to come out to his parents because they already have a broken son, and he didn’t want to expand on those feelings
  • tutors kids for chocolate bars or spare change whenever he has the time
  • was terrified of being made head boy, because he just knew he couldn’t handle it, and was relieved when it was James (bc he just knew Lily was a shoe-in for Head Girl)
  • Is the first person Lily actually admits her confused feelings about James to

Sirius

  • Second-shortest Marauder (much to his chagrin)
  • has excellent posture as a result (because if he slouches he’s the same height as Peter)
  • Long black hair, grey eyes, regal/sharp features. 
  • has a leather jacket that he picked up at a muggle consignment store when he was 14. it’s worn & covered in patches, and when his mother finds it in his closet his father uses the cruciatus on him
  • speaks excellent french. a side effect of Toujours Pur
  • Always paints his nails black or grey. When they chip, he paints over them, so it’s just layers and layers of paint
  • Starts to grow his hair out in the summer before his third year. Keeps it roughly shoulder length, and trims it himself after he had Emily Tefty teach him how
  • Incidentally, the summer before third year is when he stopped believing he could ever make amends with his parents. The only reason he went home after that was for Reg
  • Wants to live in London and work in a muggle garage
  • Is very smart, but doesn’t try. can ace every test though
  • is particularly gifted at CoMC
  • Smokes way more than he should
  • gets his first tattoo (a lion, what else) in Knockturn alley when he was 15. it paces and roars depending on his mood, and is on his ribcage, protecting his heart because he’s so afraid that one day he wont be able to protect his heart from his parents ideology 
  • realized he was Gay (and in love with Remus) in the start of their 5th year
  • was so terrified of that fact that he went on a year-long dating extravaganza, in which he dated and snogged every girl he could get to agree to go out with him (which was, of course, almost all of them) in an attempt to find someone he liked better than Remus. It failed.
  • Ran away from home for good after a particularly brutal beating between 5th and 6th year
  • cried for days when he heard about Reg getting marked
  • hates Snape because snape doesn’t have the shackles of a pureblood fundamentalist family, but actively seeks that lifestyle, while he would give anything to be free of it

James

  • Gets up every morning and goes for a run around the grounds, no matter how cold it is
  • eats healthy, but he’s a growing boy so a second helping of pudding isn’t going to kill him
  • Lives, breathes, eats, and sleeps quidditch. Wants to be a professional player someday and probably could have
  • half-hindu, so dark complexion, dark eyes and dark hair
  • keeps said hair wildly messy in a lighthearted rebellion against his family
  • has a massive soft spot for the house elves, and sneaks into the kitchen more often to visit with them than he does to get remus and himself a cuppa
  • is the literal life of the party
  • Has loved Lily since 2nd year
  • doesn’t understand why she doesn’t like him for a long time, but eventually he gets it   
  • is naturally smart/gifted, and doesn’t understand why Remus has to study all the time
  • Disliked Severus for a multitude of reasons; his closeness with Lily, his inclination towards the Pureblood agenda, the fact that he was a Slytherin and was proud of it. This made him an easy bullying target for James, but he only started to truly hate Severus after the mudblood incident 
  • is very careful with his belongings
  • Dated a cute Ravenclaw for the first 6 months of his 6th year, but eventually broke it off because Lily was single again because they just didn’t have that spark 
  • Was terrified when he was made head boy, just like he was terrified when he was made Quidditch captain the year before
  • Is literal Mr. Oblivious. Doesn’t realize the wolfstar situation, doesn’t realize that what he says has an impact on people, doesn’t realize how many girls are interested in him, doesn’t realize that not everyone is as smart as he is, doesn’t realize when Lily’s feelings change.
  • literally peter has to spell out the wolfstar thing to him 
  • Is terrified of the mermaids in the Black Lake

Lily

  • the most feminist feminist who ever feministed 
  • Kept a muggle record player from her father that Remus helped her charm to work in Hogwarts during 4th year
  • Was definitely very close to being in love with Severus before the mudblood incident. He was her first kiss
  • she and Severus both made up their own spells, and correct their potions books with better instructions. Muffiato was her creation
  • Smart, but studies very hard nonetheless, Bc in the back of her mind she was terrified that someone someday will take away her wand
  • Actual queen of sarcasm
  • knitted in her spare time (the muggle way)
  • Long (like, can tuck it in her waistband) red hair, creamy skin (burns like a lobster in direct sunlight)
  • Cuts her hair after the mudblood incident because Severus always loved to play with it
    • this is 100% someone else’s idea, but i cant for the life of me find the post. If it’s your’s, or you know who’s it is, PLEASE message me and let me know and I’ll give them all the credit 
  • Ends up with a bob and scraggily bangs. Keeps it for a month, then magically grows it back out until it’s below her shoulder blades. Keeps the bangs, because she likes them
  • Figures out Remus’ secret after 3 months of prefect duty in 5th year. Tells him, just to make sure he doesn’t feel like he has to lie or hide from her.
  •  can banter back and forth with Peter so well that they leave the others in stitches every time
  • Loved her parents, but never had much of a relationship with her mother
  • Officially gave up on trying with Petunia in the summer before 4th year, when she threw a scarf Lily had knitted her for her birthday in the bin immediately upon opening it, because she was convinced Lily had knitted it with magic
  • fell in love with James somewhere in the middle of 6th year, and was terrified of it, because they had managed a truce/friendship and she was so afraid to mess that up
  • legitimately doesn’t believe she’s good enough to be Head Girl
  • Fierce protector of all the muggleborn students 
  • Retreated into a shell of a person early in 6th year when her dad died of cancer. the marauders and Marlene took 2 months to try and get back to being herself
  • Dated Amos Diggory for the first 3 months of 6th year, but ultimately broke it off because of James because they just didn’t have that feeling
  • when Severus started sending her letters threatening to harm himself if she wouldn’t talk to him, she stopped opening them, and reported him to Slughorn as a suicide risk
  • Wanted to become a healer and totally could have

Marlene

  • Best friends with Lily since the first night of first year
  • Sucker for a funny guy
  • Talented artist, terrible in all of her courses (she only passes because of Lily)
  • dyslexic as hell
  • hated tea with a passion, but fell in love with coffee after Peter introduced it to her during their 2nd year
  • now she buys it from columbia (that and art supplies are the only things she shamelessly splurges/spends her family’s vast wealth on)
  • Is a pureblood, but her whole family rejects the doctrines, and she’s very proud of that. Especially after seeing what its like for Sirius to fight his family.
  • wants to become a wizard tattoo artist and totally could have
  • has a floral ½ sleeve she designed herself
  • short stature, wavy blonde hair, blue eyes
  • does commission work for students and faculty 
  • By 7th year, starts giving illegal frowned upon tattoos to students in her dorm (but only those of age). Lily turns a blind eye to this because she knows Marlene is clean and safe and damn good at what she does, and she feels the need to support her best friend’s dreams
  • Started to fall for Peter in 6th year, because he made her laugh
  •  See’s the good in (almost) everyone

You laid in lips bed, which at this point had kinda felt like yours as well, you had spent so much time here it felt like you lived with him. Which honestly neither of you minded. Lip never wanted to be without you and you didnt want to leave him so it worked out.

You and Lip had spent the day watching Liam, which honestly you loved. Besides the obvious fact that you got to play with toys and watch disney movies lip knows you secretly love but the fact that he was so amazing with Liam and it made you fall for the boy even harder. 

Seeing him with Liam made you think about the future, with him in it. You had grown up wanting a family, with a big house and a loving husband, most importantly raising amazing kids and loving them with everything you had, to be anything and everything but your parents and that was your goal, to be everything to your kids, to be an amazing mom and nothing like your own.

“Hes all tucked in and sleeping. He told me to say thanks for an amazing day with his favourite girl and that I better watch out because he could take you. My 3 year old brother is gonna take my girl” Lip says taking off his shirt and lighting a smoke. A huge smile spreads across your face as you scoot down to the end of the bed, criss cross apple sauce next to your extremely hot boyfriend and take his smoke.

“Today was a pretty great day” You smiled passing the smoke back and leaning your head on his shoulder.

“This is why I love you, other girls would expect dates and flowers and things I cant afford or don’t have time for with everything in my family going on. But not you, you offer to help me. You are more than happy to sit and babysit with me all day, and laying in bed cuddling is so much better than going out” He saig bringing his lips to your forehead.

“I would babysit with you anyday everyday for the rest of my life. I don’t need expensive things that makes you have to work your ass off to afford, I don’t mind helping out your family because I love you and Im not going to let you suffer in doing it all by yourself, we are a team lip” You said. Out of the corner of your eyes you could see a smile on his face. 

When you and lip first started dating you were so fucking scared that it would just be a hook up, that he still had feelings for Karen and that in the end you’d be left heart broken. That was over a year ago and after lip telling you many times “This is so much fucking more to me than sex Y/n, I want this, I want you” and him staying for so long you allowed yourself to open up to him, allowed yourself to love him.

“Hopefully one day we won’t be babysitting, they will be our little ones running around” He said standing up going to change into shorts before coming back to lay down with his babygirl.

“You think about those things? Like the future?” You asked, kinda shocked if you were being honest. You thought about it all the time, you just didn’t think lip did.

“All the time actually. Before you I wasn’t like this, girls didn’t stay over, I sure as hell didn’t tell them I loved them and cuddling wasn’t something we would be doing. But now you staying over is almost an everyday thing and when you aren’t here I don’t sleep. I love you and Ill tell the whole world and I don’t feel complete without you in my arms so, looks like Im a changed man” He laughed at the end causing you to laugh, lip wasn’t the the boy who sat with you and blurted out his feelings, he only did it sometimes which you were okay with but when he did it made you feel like you were on cloud nine.

“Tell me what you think about” You said placing your head on his chest as his arms were wrapped around you.

“Well, as college is next year Im hoping to make it through and get an amazing job, You living with me of course. Im hoping I impress some rich people and get a really good paying job. Once we save enough money I will buy a huge piece of land and me and your brothers (Milkovich brothers) we will build you the house you’ve always dreamed about, adding as many rooms as we can and filling a few of them with the beautiful babies we make” Lip had described a future you had wanted so bad.

“I want that more than anything.. Seeing the way you are with Liam makes me want that with you so bad one day. I want my children-” You were cut off by lip.

“Our, you said mine but if you even think for a second that we won’t have that future together you are wrong.. You are my end game y/n. You are my first and last love and we will have adorable babies” He said, kissing the top of your head after, you had millions of butterflies and it was so amazing to hear him say those things.

“I want our adorable Gallagher-Milkovich babies to have the life we didn’t. No hitting, no yelling, no sadness and no brokenness, just love. Just us” You told him telling the truth. That right there, was all you ever fucking wanted.

“If someone ever hits my child I will get Svetlana on their ass faster then I can get Mickey on their ass. Our kids will never grow up having the lives we did and you will spend the rest of your life remembering that we aren’t our parents” He told you moving your head to be able to kiss you, he needed too. He needed to feel the love he felt once your lips connected to his.

“We are a team Lip, you and me and one day little ones” 

“We are a family Y?n” He said before you closed your eyes and fell asleep with the biggest smile on your face.

Kremlin Annihilation Week: Day 3 - Take 2

Okay, with less bitterness this time.

I know everyone’s gonna say 2x13 because it is legitimately the worst. So I’ll just start with 2x12 and explain why I think they are all The Literal Worst.

2x12: Kremlins like to point at this episode and say that it’s a really good representation of how good Man-Hell is because he doesn’t force Kara to return his feelings after he rejects her. Well, I reject that notion. Here’s my reasons why.
- Comes back to CatCo to ask out her co-workers, the same one he was so easily able to manipulate before and makes sure Kara sees him and knows why he’s there (”Well, you rejected me so I’m moving on”). This is what? A day after he confessed his feelings? Yeah, no, he’s not trying to move on. He’s trying to make Kara jealous, it’s a pretty classic move on the part of every fuckboy everywhere.
- Proceeds to spend the entire date he takes Eve on talking about Kara, ensuring that Kara hears about that the next day and thus has to hear yet again how he feels about her and that he’s CONSTANTLY thinking about her. That’s not stalker-ish at all.
- The club soda thing? Same idea. He never drinks club soda before or after this episode (that they show us) and if he does, it’s certainly not exclusively club soda and not for a week straight. So he intentionally does it to get Kara’s attention. Why would he be doing that after he seems to say it’s okay that she doesn’t like him back? Well, to remind her that he’s there and CONSTANTLY THINKING ABOUT HER AGAIN! And, again, the information is passed to her through a third party, so the emotional manipulation is subtle and can’t really be traced back to him as intentional.

2x14: Skipping 2x13 cuz the things there are obvious and everyone else will say them (has said them). This is supposed to be the beginning of their “star-crossed” relationship and it isn’t off to a good start.
- When she brings him flowers and coffee in the morning, he just sort-of stares at them and says it was “gentlemanly” of her to do so (rigid gender roles much?) and then dumps the flowers in a lamp shade (DO NOT TELL ME IT WAS A STUPID CULTURAL ERROR KREMLINS, HE KNOWS THAT’S NOT WHERE FLOWERS GO, THERE IS A 100000% CHANCE THEY HAD FUCKING VASES ON DAXAM) with zero consideration. Very kind and gracious.
- He tells Kara he wished he had been able to wake up with her even though he knows that she was out doing superhero stuff and getting him flowers and coffee and literally shows up like within a minute of him waking up. He needs to stop trying to get her to be ashamed of being a superhero, I swear to god. Being a hero is not about being selfish.
- There’s the obvious breaking his promise to her to keep their relationship quiet and then announcing it to the ENTIRE DEO and then never apologizing for it.
- Pulling her aside while she is happy to tell her his suspicions about Jeremiah being a traitor. Dude, let her be happy. This is her dad. Don’t try to spoil this reunion, it’s literally something they’ve been working toward for almost a year now. If you have suspicions, take them to someone else, someone like Winn who doesn’t have an emotional connection to Jeremiah. But honestly? Don’t say anything at all until you have valid proof, demon boy. It’s literally just you being paranoid and trying to isolate Kara from her family with your “suspicions.” 
- Again, the breaking of the promise to give Jeremiah the benefit of the doubt and then confronting him at the family dinner. Intentionally. Out of… jealousy? Again? Since he was getting all weird about Jeremiah being allowed back to the DEO so quickly even though they kept a much closer watch on him? Was that seriously his motivation in this scene? Fuckwad.
- That half-assed apology after Kara calls him out on him not listening to her (for the second episode in a row). Also, asking for her forgiveness for it immediately, despite having done literally nothing to earn it yet.
- Getting Winn to help him FIND evidence against Jeremiah and spy on him. Without telling anyone else, including J’onn, the head of the DEO. Granted, that sort-of helped since they were able to catch him doing the download thing, but like… why didn’t they LOOK at the download thing before they decided to bring it to Kara AGAIN? They’re able to do so in just the next scene, so why force Kara onto their side before they have any ACTUAL evidence from the data Jeremiah downloaded? Jesus Fucking Christ, these people are idiots.
- Having to go to Winn to ask what he should do to be a better boyfriend (no, he does not get brownie points for recognizing he’s been a bad boyfriend, kremlins). Needing the only other straight white guy on the show to tell him what Kara’s been telling him since 2x13 that she needs. Literally needing to be told that he should be listening to his girlfriend.
- ONLY being kind and attentive to Kara after he has been proven RIGHT and she is in an extremely vulnerable state, emotionally. She is in a more “submissive” position now and he can be in the more traditionally “dominant” role that he is clearly more comfortable with. Rigid gender roles again anyone?

2x15: Thankfully he wasn’t in this much, but what was in it was still bad. Here’s why.
- Not listening to why Kara is hesitating over posting the blog article and thus losing her job. Didn’t we just have two episodes about him listening to Kara and what she needs? No? Oh, well, must’ve just been my imagination.
- Pushing Kara to make a decision that will lose her her job, the one place where she can go without him following her. Intentionally pushing her to isolate herself more so she has to spend more time with him and pretending it’s support.
- Showing up to presumably cheer her up with food he has already started eating.
- Not being sympathetic at all when he comes back and she’s upset over losing her job. Telling her that she can just get another job. Not apologizing for his part in pushing her into the decision that led to her losing her job. Not apologizing for not listening to why she loves her job and didn’t want to lose it BEFORE he pushed her into doing something that would cost her her job.
- Kara saying that Supergirl is not part of “who she is” but only “what she can do.” “What she can do” as Supergirl is only doable because she’s a Kryptonian. Those powers, and her identity as Supergirl, are one of her last links to her Kryptonian heritage, a link she will always have with her, unlike Clark or her mother’s hologram or even the Fortress of Solitude. Her powers are A PART OF HER and thus, so is Supergirl. Supergirl is Kara Zor-El. Reporter at CatCo is Kara Danvers.
- Kara saying that being Supergirl and having Wonder Bread would be enough for her. If we go by what the narrative says, that Supergirl ISN’T truly who she is, and she’s lost the one thing that she pinned her real identity to (her job), then she has now just declared that her entire identity is as HIS girlfriend. She no longer exists without Man-Ew because without him, she has nothing, if we go by the narrative.

2x16: Some pretty obvious stuff here, so I’ll keep this one brief.
- I don’t believe for a second he didn’t recognize Rhea’s voice or the ship which means he allowed Kara to go into battle against that ship likely knowing she wouldn’t win because he didn’t tell her pertinent information (this is a pattern, isn’t it? It’s the same shit he pulled in 2x13 when giving her all of the information didn’t get him what he wanted). 
- Refusing to tell Kara the truth about his identity and why the Daxamites were here. Clearly intending to go to his parents and tell them off and come back without anyone being the wiser and coming up with some sort of lie as to why they wanted him.
- Calling himself a “hero of Earth” as if he gives a shit about Earth and humanity in general. As if he has in any way earned the right to call himself a hero at all. Period.
- Not actually speaking out against slavery and leaving that to Kara. Oh, yeah. He’s changed just because he said “Daxam was never great.” I totally believe it.
- “This is the point in the movie where the girl forgives the guy for whatever dumb stuff he’s done.” This is his first scene since Kara sort-of broke up with him, so he obviously has done nothing to EARN forgiveness yet.
- Trespassing into Kara’s home without breaking anything after she asks for space.
- Telling her that he has to tell her some things before he loses her forever even though he has no plans of leaving for Daxam which is the only way this entire scene could have been even remotely acceptable. 
- Claiming that he wants to be a hero so he can spend every day by her side (newsflash: that’s not herosim, that’s just selfish and the opposite of what being a hero is about).
- Choosing not to go back to Daxam when he has the opportunity to amend some of the mistakes he made while he was the Prince.

Crossover Musical: Again, mostly obvious stuff.
- Why is he there instead of Alex? Makes no sense.
- Lying about his relationship status with Kara while she is unconscious. Shushing J’onn when he tries to correct Musty-Eh, even though J’onn is his superior officer. Total lack of respect for authority? Still check. But he’s totally changed for Kara.
- Kissing Kara while she is unconscious and cannot consent.
- Not sounding even slightly worried about Kara when he sees she is dying in the musical world.
- Somehow this kiss WORKS? I know he SAID he loves her and all, but I’m not sure he knows HOW to love. Clearly he didn’t get good examples from his parents and he certainly doesn’t treat Kara like he loves her, so the kiss absolutely should have failed and J’onn should have pushed him out of the way and done it himself, kissing Kara on the forehead just seconds before she passes away. Or Alex should have been there. Hell, I’d have even accepted Barry asking Cisco to send him back in after he comes to and realizes it didn’t work and giving Kara a forehead kiss of friendship (or on the hand or something).
- Somehow Kara forgives him despite him literally STILL doing nothing to earn it despite kissing her while she is unconscious because some lunatic told him he should.
- Kermil being paralleled to WestAllen, a healthy interracial relationship, despite the only reason karahell even existing is because the show BROKE UP a healthy interracial relationship for racism.

2x17: I am so tired of this, but it’s the last one, so it’s almost over.
- Butting in with his opinion when Alex and J’onn are trying to convince Kara to stand down as if he is offended no one asked him for an opinion even though he literally has nothing to add to the conversation except, “Yeah, what they said.”
- BONUS: He is not included in the shot when J’onn says, “Those of us who care about you.”
- Suggesting running away to another planet as a viable solution, despite that meaning that Kara would be leaving behind her family and friends, her job, and her home. Not even suggesting that they take Alex with them or any of her family and friends. Or that just Kara go by herself until the situation can be handled. He wants it to be just the two of them. And we’re back to the isolation.
- When that doesn’t work, he calls her heroism annoying. Back to thinking herosim is about being selfish, not selfLESS. Also, insults towards Kara’s passions. That line typically goes, “That’s what I LOVE MOST about you.” But he doesn’t love her. So. 

Anyway, that’s my worst episodes list. 

anonymous asked:

ok so sorry if this is super annoying but i saw you going off about the sjm books and i was wondering if you could explain why they're problematic? i only ever read the 1st ToG book and then had to stop because i did n o t like it, but aside from a lack of representation (which let's face it, is in a ton of YA lit and which i'm sadly kinda used to), i don't remember anything super offensive in that book despite my dislike of it. it was a while ago tho so i could be mistaken?

everything wrong with throne of glass:

  • toxic & hyper masculinity
  • shitty writing
  • white feminism
  • no consistency
  • literally zero poc
  • shitty world building
  • makes the characters “tan” even tho they are literally white as fuck
  • bare minimum of LGBTQ+ rep
  • slut shames aedion & compares him being bi to being a prostitue
  • thinly veiled misogyny
  • justifies the fae culture even though it’s blatantly sexist & racist & homophobic
  • celaena is special. she isnt like other girls. she’s better than the other girls.
  • every girl has to be lesser than celaena except for manon (but she doesnt show up until book 3)
  • ableist as fuck (see: chaol westfall)
  • every character has to be in a straight, white, het relationship
  • killed off/sidelined all the woc
  • forces women who hate men to be in het relationships (see: manorian)
  • excuses actual physical and emotional abuse because rowboat is so hot!!!
  • changes characters’ personalities halfway through the series/inconsistent character development (see: aelin, chaol, dorian)
  • pits two characters against each other just to make the audience hate one of them (see: chaol in qos)
  • doesnt know what character growth/development looks like
  • changes the genre from ya to na 5 books into the series (see: the motherfucking beach scene)
  • does a poor job of showing not telling
  • has no regard for her younger audience and instead writes horrible sex scenes for her own pleasure (that arent even realistic)
  • drops characters when she gets bored of them (see: chaol in eos oh wait you can’t because she wrote him out of it)
  • in sum: please don’t read throne of garbage & a court of whites and racism :)))))

“I was in a hotel room with Mark Gatiss actually - oh that’s how rumours start- and I started writing the audition scene for her and I started writing about her talking about a boy and it just felt wrong. I couldn’t say why exactly I didn’t like it but then I changed it to a girl and then it was just right - she’s gay.”

- Steven Moffat explaining how they decided to make Bill gay

they didn’t decide they needed an LGBT character, they simply wrote a character and discovered that being gay was part of her in the process

Circle of Life

Characters – Sam x Reader

Summary – Sam’s a civilian now, working as a handyman for a local motel and thinking he’s out of the hunting life forever.  When the owner of the motel asks him to make some repairs on a house he rents out for some extra money, Sam agrees, not knowing that the job will have him questioning his new life.

Word Count – 2,687

Warnings – None; mostly fluff, with a little bit of angst right in the middle.

A/N – Part one! Takes place between Seasons 7 and 8, when Sam became a handyman after Dean disappeared – canon divergent in that he meets Y/N rather than Amelia.  This was written for both a request and a challenge.  This request came in from @winchesters-princess: “Can you pretty please write a handyman!sam x reader based off 8.05 “blood brother” fluffy of course ❤️ that was Sam’s actual job and he was on a house call to fix something rather than the motel like in the ep.”   Here you go, Ro!  I hope you enjoy it!  

This was also written for @buckysmetallicstump’s Disney Quote Challenge.  I chose quote #1: “The past can hurt.  But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.” Rafiki, the lion king AND #19. “Ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.” Lilo, Lilo and Stitch.  Thanks Bailey!

BTW – Al and Belle are based off of two of my cats, Rylee and Chloe – and if you’re wondering if the cord story is real, let’s just say that I had to buy a new pair of earbuds just last weekend!  Her full name is Chloe Elizabeth “Lucky” Cleveland!  LMAO!


Your name: submit What is this?


Sam pulled up in front of an older white house and looked down, checking the address on the paper Mr. Davidson had given him.  After ensuring he was at the right address, he got out of his truck and leaned over the back, grabbing his banged up toolbox.  He made his way to the front of the house, pausing for a moment to look at it. Though it was on the older side, the paint was fresh, with hunter green shutters framing the windows.  A flowerbed lined the front walk, and looked to be well designed and maintained – not a weed in sight.  Smiling, Sam walked up the front steps and used the key Mr. Davidson had given him to enter the house.
