but i love it you can't choose who you love

i always see wholesome posts about loving your mom and giving her the world. those posts are fine and all, i’m glad you guys love your moms and have happy healthy relationships. but for some of us it just isn’t realistic, so this one goes out to everyone who’s stomach twists when they see those posts because their mom isn’t a good person and because they don’t have a good relationship with her. you don’t have to love your mom, you don’t have to love any of your family members. you choose to love who treats you right, don’t let posts like that make you feel bad for not liking your mom.

Without wanting to sound arrogant, I don’t particularly want to know what viewers think of me- and I don’t believe it does you any favours, knowing that people really like you or really hate you. I’m just happy to get on with doing what I do. I’m just doing my job, which is something I thoroughly enjoy.

if i remember correctly you once said that peter is allowed to choose whoever alpha he loves but they have to come from some higher ranks? oh god i just can't help wondering what if peter falls in love with a commoner? will steve & bucky be ok with that? D: i'm one of those few people who ships spideydevil, and i keep having these angsty thoughts about peter falling for a poor blind alpha matt murdock who's he accidentally bumps into when he sneaks out the castle, wandering around in disguise


What is



Oh my God can you imagine Harley “I THOUGHT I ONLY HAD TO SCARE OFF THE NOBLES NOW I HAVE TO SCARE ALL ALPHAS TOO” Rogers foaming at the mouth when he learns about it

Harley sneaking out after Peter because even though he’s older he’s still an omega so Harley has a Responsibility For Him, and seeing Peter meeting with some weird ass alpha who can’t see and he’s so upset that he doesn’t realize he’s acting on instinct until he is actively flying through the air to kick Matt in the face. Matt doesn’t even have time to defend himself, it’s just Foot: meet Face. Peter screams as both his little brother and Matt go tumbling across the ground. Matt tries to scramble up to protect Peter but Peter grabs Harley by the ear and he’s yelling at him “What are you doing here!!!! You’re supposed to be asleep!!!” And Harley’s yelling back “SO ARE YOU!!!!!” Matt didn’t sign up for any of this he just likes talking to the nice omega that buys him a meal whenever they cross paths why is this happening

(Peter and Harley are both yelling. Steve and Bucky can’t make heads or tails of it. Tony stares at both of his children for a long moment before saying, “No, not tonight, thank you,” and then turning to go back to bed. Steve and Bucky watch Peter and Harley storm to their rooms and follow after Tony, bewildered. “What was that all about?” “Peter’s been sneaking out to meet someone, Harley snuck out after him, I’m tired.” Tony patted the bed on either side. “Come sleep.” Steve and Bucky obey.)

((Steve jerks out of his doze with a snarl. “WAIT, WHAT.” Bucky jerks awake as well. “They’ve been sneaking out?!” “I’M TIRED,” Tony snaps. “We’ll deal with it tomorrow.” Well. Tony has always been kind of terrifying when he was tired and grumpy. Steve and Bucky both lie back down obediently.))

I understand what the last comic is going for but I find it very sad that people will always choose who they rub their genitals on over family. You can find lots of different people to love, you can't replace a parent.

I get what you’re saying and ideally, there doesn’t have to be a choice and differences can be resolved (like in this strip), but it’s not always as simple as that. One of the hardest lessons to learn sometimes is just how flawed your parents can be. Usually it’s all just fine and like any good relationship, you love them despite all the times they screwed up and continue to screw up. You have healthy boundaries and respect each other and work through the troubles. But sometimes, there’s a hard realization that a parent is an outright toxic person who actively tries to ruin your happiness. Sometimes, for your own sake, you have to dramatically distance yourself, even to the point of dropping all contact.

In fact, someone submitted their story of just this happening right after you. I’ll paste it here so the name isn’t attached.

… this latest comic really hits home. My own mother acted much the same way, and it even got physical at one point (such that I had to intervene to stop her physically harming my wife, which resulted in my punching my own mother in the face… yeah…).

She tried to make me choose… and I had to make it clear to her that there WAS no choice - I would side with my wife and walk out of my mothers life if she made it come to that.

As bad as that all sounds… thank you. Thank you for illustrating this. It is something people need to know happens.

  • Furihata: It's happening, isn't it?
  • Akashi: Sorry?
  • Furihata: You're getting taller
  • Akashi: Oh
  • Furihata: You used to be only slightly taller than me but now.. you're taller than me, you know, just.. taller.
  • Akashi: [chuckles]
  • Furihata: I'm going to need extra effort to kiss you now
  • Akashi: If it's any comfort, I'm going to always bend down every time we kiss, so you don't have to do anything.. other than kiss me back, that is
  • Furihata: [scoffs] Why, thank you
  • Furihata: ...
  • Akashi: What is it?
  • Furihata: Mm, I'm just, a bit jealous I think.. You're way cooler now that your height increased.. and compared to you, I'm.. well, I'm a mess
  • Akashi: Kouki..
  • Furihata: Oversize glasses, dark circles under my eyes, muscles.. nowhere in sight. Not in any way attractive if you asked me--not that I was attractive before but--
  • Akashi: It just shows you work hard on your studies
  • Furihata: Still..
  • Akashi: [sighs] Kou--
  • Furihata: [suddenly determined] No, you deserve a better shaped me. I think I'll start working out again once I graduated. It will be good for my health.. also, I can't have you falling out of love with an unattractive boyfriend [grins]
  • Akashi: It will never happen
  • Furihata: [smiles] You don't know the future, Sei
  • Akashi: Does it matter though? What matters, to me at least, is we live in the present and right now, I choose to never fall out of love with you
  • Akashi: ...
  • Akashi: [blushes]
  • Furihata: You do realize I'm the one who supposed to be blushing right now.. right?

Some more Philinda thoughts

Because my brain won’t stop:

I think Melinda fell in love with Phil after Bahrain. The foundation for it was already set - the chemistry between them was apparent and even acknowledged by them on some level (aka the conversation about getting a drink all those years ago), so the attraction and draw was already there. But I think that on Phil’s part the attraction morphed into something deeper quicker than it did for May. 

Bahrain cemented that burgeoning attraction into something stronger and much more permanent. May didn’t know that, though, until much later. 

The moment that May breaks down, she’s in Coulson’s arms. After listening to the comment he makes in season one when they’re arguing about her betrayal (”how could you do that to me? after all the time I spent sifting through the ashes with you in Bahrain?” or something to that effect) leads me to believe that Phil was the only real support that May would accept. In the flashbacks we can see that she can’t - or won’t - lean on Andrew, but that’s not the case with Phil. So here Melinda is completely destroyed after Bahrain and she’s put up all these walls, but for whatever reason Phil is allowed inside them. The fact that he stays inside that circle (as much as she can bear to have anyone that close at that point) speaks volumes, IMO. 

So by the time May starts to regain a sense of herself and some kind of balance, Coulson is firmly ensconced in her heart. And trauma is sharply divisive: it’ll either tear you apart, or tie you tightly together. Andrew and Melinda were torn apart, but Phil and Melinda … well, that decided it, I think. It’s part of the reason they are so fiercely loyal to and protective of one another, especially May.

Perks of Being a Wallflower for the Signs
  • Aries: "And there are people who forget what it's like to be 16 when they turn 17. I know these will all be stories someday. And our pictures will become old photographs. We'll all become somebody's mom or dad. But right now these moments are not stories. This is happening."
  • Taurus: "I know I'm quiet... and, and I know I should speak more. But if you knew the things that were in my head most of the time, you'd know what it really meant. How, how much we're alike, and how we've been through the same things... and you're not small. You're beautiful."
  • Gemini: "This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you're listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite."
  • Cancer: “She wasn't bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time. ”
  • Leo: "You can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love."
  • Virgo: "You see things and you understand. You're a wallflower."
  • Libra: - "Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we're nothing?"
  • - "We accept the love we think we deserve."
  • Scorpio: - "Sam, do you think if people knew how crazy you really were, no one would ever talk to you?"
  • - "All the time."
  • Sagittarius: "My doctor said we can't choose where we come from but we can choose where we go from there. I know it's not all the answers but it was enough to start putting these pieces together."
  • Capricorn: “Standing on the fringes of life... offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.”
  • Aquarius: "If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am."
  • Pisces: “So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.”

Favorite one of the tres horny boys (and what you like about them or if you can't choose what you like about each of them)?

Taako’s my fave to draw because his color scheme is basically ALL my favorites, but I think I’m gonna have to go with Magnus.  I really love characters who see bad stuff and stay good.  (well, I mean, given value of good. Chaotic good for sure)



i’ve told you my stories for years now. some have been about coming of age. some have been about coming undone. this is a story about coming into your own, and as a result…coming alive.i hope you know that you’ve given me the courage to change. i hope you know that who you are is who you choose to be, and that whispers behind your back don’t define you. you are the only one who gets to decide what you will be remembered for. from the girl who said she would never cut her hair or move to new york or find happiness in a world where she is not in love…

love, taylor

I don't know if this is something you'd post but I don't see a lot of positivity around ace/aros who still want kids and a family but don't want to date or be in a relationship like that. It would be cool to see some love for aros who want to be parents but not partners (it feels like its only acceptable to choose to be a single parent if you're a woman pushing 40 who's tried her best to settle down and just been unlucky in love. and it sometimes feels like to be a good aro you can't want kids)

You can absolutely want kids if you’re aro! Being aro does not mean that you can’t have a family. If you don’t feel romantic love, that doesn’t mean you can’t feel familial love. While I don’t personally want kids, I think people who do are great. Especially people that will raise the future generation to be accepting and supportive of people who are lgbtqa+. I wish you luck in the future and hope you have a wonderful life.

Hey! I love your page. I am 21 and dating someone who is 49. I never thought I would date someone older than my dad lol but what we have is seriously amazing. We've been together almost two years. At first I didn't have any support besides my mom and looking back I would have loved to have seen this page! My advice for anyone struggling with an age difference- if you're happy don't worry about anything else. You can't always choose who you fall in love with and that's the beauty of it I think :)

anonymous asked:

I love someone who doesn't love me back but I can't move on. I'm stuck. What should I do?

It’ll take time. Remember that you shouldn’t confine yourself to the idea of being with a person who doesn’t want to be with you. Free yourself and remember that you have so so so many other beautiful souls to meet and one that will choose you over and over again. Don’t settle for one that doesn’t choose you.
