but i love everyone okay

          I have made mistakes. Everyone has – that’s not something anyone can deny. I want to apologize for my mistakes, and I want to grow from them. I own up that I’m skeptical, I’ve always been because I’ve been hurt from jumping headfirst without thinking things through. I’ve grown up being hurt like this, and I know a lot of the hurt wasn’t always my fault – I grew up in an abusive household. My father was an evil man – he still is and he still tries to control me, an adult, someone who has moved on and left that place of harm, just because he feels entitled to my life. Had I never broke under his control, had I never stopped and thought about what he was doing, I would be a heartless individual. I grew up to react harshly towards others, because I expected others to hurt me, to attack me constantly and without warning. To this day, I have moments where I fight fire with fire – but that’s not who I want to be. That’s not who I aim to be.

          I want to be someone people can trust, someone people feel safe around, someone people want to be around as a friend. I try every day to be a loving individual and to spread this love to as many people as I can because I know what it feels like to hurt, to be at that precipice of ending it all. I’ve tried, oh god I’ve tried so many times, and my attempts alone have hurt so many and pushed others away. I needed to realize that there were things to live for, things to aim for, and that there would always ALWAYS be people there who needed me, whether they were in my life yet or would soon be. There is always a reason and there is always someone who needs you, even if you don’t believe it.

          You don’t have to have a religion, you don’t have to believe in anything; whether there are pearly gates or an empty void that awaits us after our limited time on earth doesn’t matter. What matters is what we do with our lives on this singular orb in the vast cosmos. You may think that we’re going to destroy ourselves as a species, that a goal of endless love for others is an empty, worthless goal. You may be right, but I believe that we need to care for each other, that we need to come together and love each other, even if we have disagreements. Especially after this recent loss, please spread love and kindness to your fellow writer, even if they seem okay, they may be hurting the most. A simple anonymous letter that they’re a blessing on your dash, or that they’re a skilled writer, or whatever you deem as uplifting. Please don’t spread hate, as hate only breeds more hate – spreading love and appreciation breeds love and that’s what we need more of in the world.

          And remember, always always remember to be careful. There are people who can and will hurt you without a second thought – these people can be manipulative, they can be conniving, and they can abuse you. If you think for a moment that someone is hurting you or manipulating you, if you feel unsafe, PLEASE take measures to ensure your safety and get away from any dangerous relationship, irl or otherwise. If you can, then try and talk with and communicate with your fellow writers, if there is a disagreement or otherwise. Calm conversation can solve so much; a violent vague post or callout over something that can be talked out will only cause unneeded misery on everyone. I could say so much, but I don’t want this to drag on and on; just… be careful. Be safe.

          And please. Spread as much love as you can, in these times especially, because so many people need it. So many people are hurting, so many people need a helping hand. Be that helping hand. Be that light for someone, and if you can’t, please don’t darken that light.

“I respect you, Will. I always have.”

And Wilford believes every word because hey, it was all a joke! And Damien turned out okay and they laughed it off together and now they’re back. And everything is okay because Damien’s fine and they’re still friends! So, Damien tells him that he still and has always respected him and Wilford is hardly surprised. They’re best friends, of course Damien respects him!

happy birthday to my special boy !!!!
it’s a hamster plush party

Can we please talk about the faces Keith makes in s1e4 when Lance gets injured?? He arrives behind Allura and is like-

-and then he catches sight of Lance and it’s just-

he is so shocked. He’s reaching out, he wants to do something, he wants to help, but then Shiro is already there so he just-

-he just comes as close as possible and he does that thing where he crunches his right eye up a little-

-and then that Arusian guy comes and complains about the sentries in his village and Keith just-

-he’s looking back at Lance, he really doesn’t want to leave Lance, but he knows he has to and just. Fuck. All the others share these expressions too. But then these frames happen-

-and you know that he is so very upset. So incredibly worried about Lance. You can see him shoving his emotions aside to do what he has to do. I’m a m es s,, ,

lance is constantly touching people. leaning on hunk, ruffling pidge’s hair, bumping shoulders with allura, throwing his arm around coran. he grew up in a place where that’s just how people interact, and if he goes a while without touching someone he feels weird and uncomfortable. keith, on the other hand, is so used to being alone that he still jumps every time lance walks up behind him and puts a hand on his shoulder, but you know?? it’s… kinda nice. to be reminded that there are people around, close enough to touch

Q: What do you think was going through Flint’s mind when Madi & Silver reunited in 4x3? Your face expresses so much. 

Toby Stephens: A bittersweet happiness for Silver, mixed [with] a sense of his own isolation.

Can you believe I stopped in the middle of a serious thing just to draw this bullshit because honestly I can’t
