body insecure

Ask meme for Mara/Quinn :3 19. Is one of them self conscious about their body? If so how does the other comfort them?

Hmm. I really had to think about this. I generally consider the Star Wars universe to be a place where there’s no real Standard for “feminine” vs. “masculine”, and beauty standards vary so much from species to species that it’s really difficult to impose some universal standard onto everyone. The result is that body insecurity tends to be less of a thing overall. It still happens, but it’s a little more localized, for lack of a better word.

For example, Quinn’s anxiety doesn’t really include worries about his body; he takes meticulous care of it to make sure it’s capable of supporting the kind of soldier he wants to be, and to ensure that he presents outwardly as an ideal Imperial officer. It’s vanity, but a weirdly utilitarian flavor of it.

However, once he and Mara began sleeping together there was a certain amount of insecurity because she’s Pureblood, and there’s a lot of social pressure for Purebloods to mate with other Purebloods. As anyone who has read @fluffynexu‘s tomato biology posts will know, Pureblood penises are, shall we say, intense, both in girth and length, and as much as Quinn may have read translations of the Râzkaj Ladzleq, being compared with a member of the species that wrote it is sort of intimidating.

When she realized this, Mara decided to go full Quinn in addressing it: she made a chart. 

The X axis was a list of her past penis-wielding paramours in chronological order, and the Y axis was a variable she termed the Lust Quotient, a value derived from several factors of attraction and repulsion. Before showing the chart, Mara took her time explaining and demonstrating the many, many facets of her attraction to Quinn, and only after she felt he had been appropriately appreciated did she break out the chart to illustrate the obvious spike in Lust Quotient that he represents. No, he’s not a Pureblood, and she’s having the best sex of her life with him.

Quinn, for the rest of his life, will maintain that was the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for him. Her methodology was in no way mathematically sound, of course, and insecurity does still crop up, but the entire exercise demonstrated to him that she wants him for exactly who he is, which is something he’s experienced maybe a handful of times in his entire life.

That insecurity spikes again immediately after the Quinncident but settles as they repair their marriage, especially after they establish a Force bond and he can feel with his own mind exactly how much Mara loves and wants him.

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

I don’t hate my body, I love it. We all should love our bodies. Every insecurity we should embrace, it’s what makes us unique… We can change some, but we have to live with most. If learn to love yourself before you make change, it’ll make things a lot easier.
Recently, I had decided to stop doing heavy leg workouts due to varicose veins on my left calf and right inner thigh. I don’t hate my legs because of it. Sure, it looks unattractive at times, but I’ve learned to live with it. We all have live with something.
If you’ve read this, nice. If you haven’t, that’s fine. But if you want, put a ☑if you have an insecurity. Most likely no one will, but whatever.

can i request a Zach imagine where the reader is feeling insecure about their body and he comforts the reader by cuddling with her and letting her watch his sister with him?

Sure, first Zach request! Hooray! love the idea, say if it’s not to standard ~

487 words, Zach Dempsey/fem!reader

“I am so ugly.” you deadpanned as you flopped down on the couch next to Zach keeping your voice quiet enough so his sister couldn’t hear you. It was bad enough to feel this way, but the last thing you wanted to do was impression his little sister with it.

“What the hell are you talking about? You’re the prettiest girl on the planet! With everything to prove it, too,” rolling your eyes you let him take you into his arms and cuddle you, something he always did to try and take your mind off of your body, which he always spoke of highly. 

It’s the body of a goddess!
Seriously, what did God do differently to make you?
Zach, you don’t even believe in God.
Yeah, but if he was a thing, something he did went seriously well with you.

You never believed him, but you never declined his compliments or attempts at making you feel better, it was only polite - even if you deep down could never believe him. 

He had his strong arms draped around you, face buried into your hair while you leant your head against his muscular shoulder. Admittedly you felt tearful whenever you got into your insecure moods but you kept strong for Zach, and his sister. You’d promised to be a good role model for her, as a girl in her life closer to her age. 

She sat on the floor, ignoring the show playing on the TV, drawing random doodles on pieces of paper. You’d always loved his sister, as she was always either teasing you and Zach, or being super sweet about ‘her brother’s cute girlfriend’ 

She’s way too pretty for you Zach.
Yeah, she is.
Shut up, the two of you.

“Hey, sis, what you drawing?”

“Nothing,” she flashed a grin that said otherwise.

“Oh yeah? What does nothing look like in a drawing?” you joked, Zach grinning down at you, thinking about what it’d be like to be able to stay with a girl as perfect as yourself, in every way, what it’d be like to have a child of your own to raise. 

She relented, holding up a half colored drawing of what looked like a girl, a boy and a shorter girl. You immediately knew that she’d drawn the three of you, feeling your heart swell knowing that you were appreciated by her just as much as you were by Zach. 

“That’s not nothing! You’re an amazing artist, you know,” you’d smiled, still resting in the crook of Zach’s arm. 

“She speaks the truth, sis… Can y/n keep it? I’m sure she’d love it.” 

You nudged Zach playfully, the love from his family making you forget that you’d called yourself ugly only moments earlier - and seeing the ever widening grin on your face ensured Zach that you were, in fact, the prettiest girl on the planet with the everything to prove it.

Some men will make you believe that it is a sin if your wings are too strong and too wide. And you have to understand that it is not your fault that the wings you were born with are not meant to be confined inside cold metal bars. You are meant to soar high—to aviate the air and make the world see your golden feathers. You are meant to go with the winds—to be fearless and strong. You are meant to reach skyscrapers—whistling with all your might and screeching through every walls to let them know you’ve come. So I tell you this, love, never close your wings just because some man will not be able to catch up if you fly.
