boy-you-have-grown

Itty Bitty Little Bit
  • Imagine you always had a problem with Luke's responsibility skills, and even now that you have grown up with the very boy that you're in love with, it hasn't improved.
  • You have to work, and on the days Luke is off, he comes home to see you and your two boys, five and ten years old.
  • Working keeps you busy, so when Luke is off you tend to take advantage of the situation and ask him to run the errands that you couldn't achieve that day.
  • Grocery stores are Luke's enemy, therefore, sending him with a shopping list is the best possible thing you can do for the blue eyed man child.
  • Upon arriving home, you see that Luke isn't yet home. Your husband gets home ten minutes after you, and starts to put the things away, when you notice the unusual silence while he asks about your day.
  • "Luke, where are the boys?" You ask, and your blonde husband goes wide eyed.
  • "Dammit. I'll be right back." And he leaves once again to get the children he forgot.
  • "You forgot the kids?"
  • "They're so small," he says before closing the door.

#Always

-Severus Snape: You’ve kept him alive so that he can die at the proper moment. You’ve been raising him like a pig for slaughter.

-Dumbledore: Don’t tell me now that. Have you grown to care for the boy, after all?

-Severus Snape: “For him?” shouted Snape “Expecto Patronum!”
From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe. She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.

-Dumbledore: Lily? After all this time?

-Severus Snape: Always (…)

What LGQBT+ books can you recommend? I have grown accustomed to boy/girl relationships and would like to read some good books about girl/girl relationships so I can feel like I relate a bit more to the characters because it sometimes makes me sad that I can't see myself in most book characters due to sexuality

That’s sad. :( This is why representation is so important! Rather than doing one of my normal lists, I’m just going to ramble about two of my personal favourites and then recommend some blogs to you. I think you’ll get more from them and they’re definitely worth having on your dash.

Two of my personal favourites that are painfully underrated are Pantomime by Laura Lam and Mangoverse by Shira Glassman. Both are YA and series, and awesome diverse fantasy reads. Pantomime is set in a circus and features a bisexual, intersex protagonist, and Mangoverse is cute and fun and about a Princess who likes girls. The former is perhaps more about gender, while the latter has lesbian, bisexual and ace/aro characters, as well as POC and feminism and Jewish culture. I love them both so much.

Follow blogs like thegayya, queerbookclub, lgbt-ya, thoselgbtbooks, bisexual-books, fuckyeahlesbianliterature, weneeddiversebooks, diversityinya and more! I love theboywhocriedbooks‘ recommendations - he’s doing a Queer Year so he’s reading lots of LGBTQ+ books and it’s so great to follow his progress.

Ok I understand where you all are coming from with the whole “sexualizing a minor is very wrong” thing and I completely agree with that but isn’t it a bit funny how all these heroic knights on white horses appear only when someone makes a dirty joke about their underage oppas? Like, where were all of you when minor girl idols were forced to do sexy concepts and were blatantly sexualized even by their own companies, let alone the fans? (for ex. Exid’s Jungwha, Rania’s Xia and many more. They were all underage when they had to do sexy concepts.) Where were you when they had to drag their almost bare asses on the stage in an excuse of a choreography? Where were you when the disgusting old men that call themselves ‘fans’ vocalized their fantasies about these girls? Ah yeah, that’s right- you were too busy tearing down other people (maybe even other minors) for making a slightly dirty joke about your underage biases.

The hypocrisy is strong with these social justice warriors.

“Welcome back, flower child. Boy have you grown. Feels like just yesterday you had braces and that cast on your arm – which you didn’t let me sign . Puberty did you well. Let the boisterous fun begin. If you need a kick start, there should be some bourbon or Hennessy in my bag – somewhere – fuck, where’d it go?”

so where are the zayn stans that live up naughty boy’s ass for weeks? have you really grown to like him or you only like him because zayn (or ‘zayn’) likes him?

by the way, don’t think i’ll ever forget how a lot of you tried and tried so hard to normalize the sexism i and chris were pointing out the whole day when the no type video leak. i am so angry because i expected this group to know better especially since i noticed that there seems to be a number who are POC. that you know and understand how it feels to be marginalized and be more perceptive perhaps to a poc/woc’s concern. but stan gonna stan, right?

do fuck off.

Some of y’all astound me & don’t take that as a compliment. It is completely crazy how many non-PoC I know who 1.) have no problem secretly, or even openly, dating Black boys/men (I’m well aware that some of you have grown out of your “phase”) or 2.) love having Black friends so they feel secure in calling people niggas or 3.) are savior complex having families who are so quick to call these Black boys “son” or “brother”, but then are all just as quick to take part in vilifying brothas who are discriminated against, brutalized, denigrated, and/or killed (in that case y’all try to justify their death), and post/share things that turn these very real & apparent problems into a joke. God forbid something happens to the Black guys & girls you fall all over yourselves to claim. Y’all would be torn, huh?😒✌🏾️

“I continue to talk about race because race continues to impact my life & the lives of those who look like me. I’m not the enemy, racism is.”

Hope you had an amazing weekend baby and you were surprised 💕 so blessed to have u in my life. I met u when u were just starting your 20s and now you’ve hit ur dirty 30ths 😜 boy have we both grown so much in 10 years and can’t with to grow with you more 😘 #bday #30 #babe #love #couple

“But this is touching, Severus,” said Dumbledore seriously. “Have you grown to care for the boy, after all?”

“For him?” shouted Snape. “Expecto Patronum!”

From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe: She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.

“After all this time?”

“Always,” said Snape. (at Steeplechase at Shiloh Apartments)

A letter to the boy I love,

I cannot tell you these things because the months have grown between us and the walls that have come up are just too high to climb, so instead I’ll write this here, and maybe one day you’ll stumble across it and realize just how deeply you are cared for. 

Thank you. Thank you for saving my life, in the very literal sense. The road I was going down would have left me terrified, miserable, and ultimately alone. I would have never had the strength to leave the place I was in if you had not come along with your beautiful brown eyes and killer smile and lifted me out yourself.

Thank you for the late nights of endless conversation about a boy who did not love me. Not only did not love me, but did almost the exact opposite. Thank you for sitting by and watching me return to him over and over again only to have my morale torn down and heart broken to come crawling back to you.

Thank you for smiling at me like I was the best part of your day every time you saw me and praying for me more diligently than any other person I’ve ever met.

Thank you for introducing me to God in that little coffee shop in small town Alabama. Thank you for letting Jesus shine through you at all times. 

Thank you for taking me in, holding my hand, taking me out on real actual dates. Thank you for being so excited to introduce me to everyone you’ve ever known and letting me talk to your mama on  the phone because you had already been telling her for weeks how beautiful I was.

Thank you for driving me to the beach on a January night, handing me your jacket, and sitting with me on the sand, letting the cold ocean spray chill us to the bone while I talked about the things I loved and the things I feared and everything in between.

Thank you for taking me out on the pier at 9:00 on that frigid Valentine’s  night and letting our feet dangle over the edge while we stared at the skyline glistening over the dark water and talked about our future. This was the night I knew I was in love with you.

Thank you for aimlessly driving all over the city every night with me, music on, eating food that was no good for us and laughing about anything and everything. Thank you for making me feel at ease with you and for having a never ending conversation. Thank you for holding me close the night I cried to you in your car and asked you to please never be mean to me. Thank you for upholding that promise to me even when you were no longer mine. 

Thank you for kissing me that night on that old worn out couch in that empty cottage and looking at me with tears in your eyes afterwards. Thank you for showing me that someone can, and will love me that much. 

Thank you for leaving when you knew it was time to go. Thank you for being strong enough to do what needed to be done because we both knew I’d never be. Thank you for crying with me at 1 am alone in that parking lot and telling me that it was the hardest thing you’d ever had to do. Thank you for showing me that it was not easy to let go of me. Thank you for breaking my heart. Thank you for bringing me down as low as I could possibly go so that I could learn to climb by myself. Thank you for giving me the strength to be on my own that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I love you, I love you, I love you, and a piece of my heart will always be yours. I am so very thankful for you even though I no longer get to be a part of your life. A part of me will always be with you that night on that couch, curled comfortably in your arms, the safest I’ve ever felt. Thank you for giving me this. 

Baby Boy,

We made it to the halfway point!  Now you have grown to the size of a banana - how crazy!  My headaches and nausea are gone.  Lately I’ve had some ligament and tailbone pains from my body making room for you but its ok with me because I know it’s so worth it!  Its summertime now and I’m on vacation spending a lot of time planning for your arrival in November!  I love my two boys.

Love,
Mommy

Happy 21st Birthday to this little cutie @libk315 !!! Finally 21!!! Growing up you were the sweetest little boy, except for the biting. Now you have grown into such an amazing man with such big goals and dreams! Watching you grow up and having you as a little brother has been one of the highlights of my life!! Enjoy your day today and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do! (But that isn’t saying much….) 🎁🎈🎂
