but i need them in my life

my first ever session, so I have no idea what to expect

pretty standard opening, you awaken in a dark room..

Lorian: roll a spot check

DM: you see that the room you are in is a cell

Steve (a mage): also roll a spot check

DM: you see that you are also in a cell

Me, Siv (a lazy mercenary): I roll to go back to sleep

DM: really.?. fine. you go back to sleep

Ian Cognito (a halfling): I pull up my pants *rolls a nat20*

DM: …you pull up your pants so far that they fuse to your body. you’ll never need to pull up your pants again nor will you be able to remove them. your life as a walking talking wedgie begins now

As a wheelchair user if I go to open a door on my own please let me do it. Please don’t tell me to stop or chide me for trying to open doors on my own. I’m already in a wheelchair, please let me practice what ever control I have left in my life. Besides I’ve gotten pretty good at opening doors in my chair.

I don’t mind and appreciate when people do it without me asking. It’s when people tell me no, stop, don’t do that, let me do that, etc. when people treat me in a way other than any other person needing the door opened for them. What frustrates me is being treated like a baby.

anonymous asked:

y'know, I never thought I could hate a character more than I hate Umbridge but then Wanda happened. I just... can't. fucking. stand. her. And then it's Clint... and even Natasha who betrayed Tony and I just need a life and friends and hobbies bc I spend all of my time obsessing over Tony and wanting him to be cared and loved and ok and I just... I HATE THEM!!!

Listen… before I get on to the Wonderfully Infuriating Subject of Wanda Maximoff, I’d like to say that I have 99 problems with Civil War, and the characterisations of my Good Boys Clint and Steve make up a good 95 of them. Just be warned, this rant is long and whiny as fuck.

I honestly really disliked Clint in Civil War, which sucks because he’s my Dumpster Son and he deserved better than just being reduced to The Guy With The Arrows, you know? What were his motives??? He was retired, he was spending time with his family, and then he just upped and left because ..what…Cap batted his eyelashes? Like… he had nothing to do with the accords. Nothing. He probably didn’t even read them; I mean Vision asked him to consider what he was doing and he did this Really Cool Eye Flicker™ before just saying ‘yeah lol okai considered bro’ and I mean?? You have children??? 

And then of course, the scene on the Raft. It’s kind of amusing in an infuriating sort of way, because I mean this is basically Clint summed up in a short piece:

Clint: *Breaks Law* For justice :))

Clint: *Is put in jail for breaking law*

Clint: :0 :0 This is UNJUST!!!!

And I mean, he appears to blame 100% of everything that happened on Tony, which I guess one could do when they’re angry and imprisoned and their other friend is standing on the other side of the bars. I can kind of get that from an objective point of view..? But? No? He’s an adult and he broke the law? That is… that’s what happens? 

Of course, when he makes that remark to Tony about Rhodey, all hope I had for his Civil War character immediately burst into an inferno and propelled itself out of the top story window. That was unnecessary and hurtful and untrue, and it made me want to slap the shit out of him.

Now. For Wanda.

If you like her character, then that is completely okay, but I don’t advise reading this.

Because I despise her. 

It’s not really her character, more as the way she was written. She had so much potential, to do so much good. But her origins are F U C K E D up, her attitude is childish (despite the fact that she is an adult guys!!) and her general character is quite frankly that of a whiny bitch.

We first see her in AoU, when she is working for HYDRA, after voluntarily (Voluntarily!! working for a terror organisation you guys!!!) Signing up for experimentation that had killed everyone else before her.
I mean, that alone tells you something about her character and her thought process.

Next, we discover that a missile with Tony’s last name on it tragically killed her parents. This is sad. This is horrible and no child should ever have to go through that.

But then she decides that Tony Stark Personally Aimed, Launched and Fired it, and decides to go on a ten-year murder plot in order to kill him for it, and that’s where the sympathy stops. Right there.

I know this is a common example, but Imma say it again because it’s important. If my parents were shot and killed by a gun that had the word ‘Beretta’ on it, I ain’t gonna go after the fuckin gun company. Why would anyone??? It makes literally no sense at all and just paints her as a villain who’s also lowkey stupid???

She had years to think these actions through, and yet still she did them. It literally does not matter about whether she helped for like the last hour of the Avengers film because the literal entire fucking world was going to be destroyed, and she didn’t want catastrophe on that scale.

You know,,, she just wanted to murder Tony. And obviously, the Avengers are his buddies, so lets try and kill them too for no reason at all!!!

She… I mean… God, she subjected Bruce to his worst nightmare and had him tear through a populated city,,, for the sake of destruction?? She literally just wanted to cause pain??? And you can’t tell me no-one died because of that because… it’s a fucking hulk? She purposely twisted all the team’s minds, and let Tony take the sceptre because she knew he could hurt people with it because of what she’d planted in his head? It’s… it’s disgusting?

You tell me ‘she’s changed’ and ‘she’s just like Tony, she used to be bad but now she’s good’ or whatever the fuck, but let me tell you this: Tony never, ever wreaked destruction for the sake of destruction. He never went out with the sole intention of killing specific innocents. He built weapons to p r o t e c t, which is why as soon as he sees they’re no longer doing that, he shuts that shit down. 

Wanda never seems to learn that lesson. Even when, For God Knows what fucked up reason, they appear to make her some sort of avenger for helping them stop the world ending (that, you know, she helped cause), she still doesn’t understand that her job is now to protect people? Her motives are still… idk selfish I guess?

“i can’t control their fear. Only my own.”

Well bitch u know what. Maybe if u stopped running off and trying to tell everyone that you, an incredibly powerful individual with a past involving terror organisations, are ‘above the law and don’t need the accords’, they’d… u know… stop being scared of u…

Don’t even get me started on what she said to Tony. I’m done with this shit. But yes anon I’m sorry this was so long but essentially, I very much agree. Good day sir.

Weekly Voltron Fic Recs #25

Rules: You can find past weekly rec lists here, and non-list recs in my general fic rec tag. This is stuff I like, and I have a huge bias toward Lance, hurt/comfort, and general fluff, in that order. Gen unless otherwise noted. Please comment on the fics if you read and enjoy them!

Happy quarter life to this ridiculous feature. I need to stop procastinating on these.

The Lion at the End of the Tunnel by Outworld
Words: 3,488
Author’s Summary: Pidge bites off more than she can chew in an act of grand space piracy gone wrong. Aboard a dying starship with few options, she’s starting to think this might be her last mistake until she discovers a certain idiot has done something very stupid.
My Comments: Tagged Lance/Pidge but reads platonic. This a great action fic with perfect character voices. I love these two together so very, very much.

Truce by kyanve
Words: 42,709 (WIP 7/?)
Author’s Summary: “EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IN EVERYONE ELSE’S HEADHOLES!” - because that feels like one of a few things that needs exploring.The new team can be a perfectly good one, but the odds of finding any five people who don’t know each other THAT well who’ll be thrilled with being mentally linked to giant sapient mechanical god-beasts and each other is basically nonexistent. It’s a recipe for whacking heads into it, avoiding it, trying to pretend it’s not there, and generally making an already awkward train wreck of a situation more awkward and confusing.Keith as main PoV because I would go insane doing this from more than one PoV and it would turn into more of a novel than it’s already looking like it’ll be, and who better to explore “sudden unasked for mental links to other beings” than someone with abandonment issues and trust issues everywhere *and* a few good big secrets?This starts around beginning of canon and I have parts to clean up and post going all the way through Season 2; it’s weaving through almost entirely off-camera things and side events. Spoilers bloody everywhere.
My Comments: REALLY fun missing scene-type fic with a great Keith perspective. It’s FUN and it does a great job of fleshing everyone out, and there are some truly fantastic ideas. I’m really enjoying this one.

Little Lions by MidnightCreator
Words: 5,111 (WIP 3/6)
Author’s Summary: Lance has a very bad day and his only upside is the comfort from the Blue Lion. The Blue Lion knows her Pilot needs her so she takes steps to be as close as she can be to him. Her actions set off a chain reaction amongst the other Lions as they all step up to be there for their Pilots.
My Comments: SO CUTE. I love lions-as-actual-lions, and this is especially good because the lions just want to make their pilots feel better. So it’s tiny lion shenanigans and oodles of H/C. MY FAVE COMBO.

Masks by TiedyedTrickster
Words: 9,588
Author’s Summary: Everyone has a mask, one that tells the world what character you’re destined to play in life, that tells people who you are. Except Lance’s mask doesn’t match him at all, and it’s driving Keith nuts.
My Comments: This is SUCH a creative and original concept. I’ve never seen anything like it, and it’s so, so cool. Starts out Lance-centric, but there’s lots of other stuff in there too, like fantastic Shiro and Keith and also REBEL MATT. Check it out!

An Unexpected Hero by nerdiekatie
Words: 2,102
Author’s Summary: “You tapped my knife to a Roomba? Where did you even get a Roomba?” Keith starts to peel his knife from the Roomba while Pidge is speaking. “She’s an old cleaning droid I found- Keith, no!” Pidge lunges forward to stop him. Keith just lifts the Roomba above his head, watching Pidge try to jump high enough to get her. “She needs to be able to defend herself!”
My Comments: This fandom has only the HIGHEST quality crack.

our native land draws all of us by SerenePanic
Words: 1,037
Author’s Summary: Coran is many things: advisor, mechanic, historian.Once, he was a father.
My Comments: My heart hurts. I love Coran so much.

De-Stressing by The_Sickfic_Sideblog for pinstripedJackalope
Words: 1,642
Author’s Summary: Keith is very stressed out. Pidge knows how to handle this. Set relatively close after The Blade of Marmora.
My Comments: This is really sweet, and I love how cool and competent is while Keith is falling apart. She really knows how to get past his defenses, and it’s lovely to see.

Qualifications by The_Sickfic_Sideblog
Words: 1,340
Author’s Summary: Pidge gets dehydrated, and the effects bring up sour memories.
My Comments: I would say “protect her,” but I think her team has that well in hand.

Ice Ice (Baby) by shishiswordsman
Words: 12,707 (WIP 2/?)
Author’s Summary: The Blue Pilot’s shoes become too big for Lance to fill. Literally. (Yes, it’s a kidfic. Sue me.)
My Comments: LOVE. De-aged Lance is quite realistic, and there’s beautiful, amazing art for every chapter, too! I am STOKED for more.

Skirt, Dirt, Worth by ardett
Words: 6,354
Author’s Summary: Lance wants to see Pidge wear skirts and makeup. (But really he doesn’t.)
My Comments: This made me ache, but there’s a lot of loveliness and courage in here, too. Lance needs love and acceptance so much, and it takes some work, but his team is able to give him that.

It Takes a Village by Zemmiphobia
Words: 18,010
Author’s Summary: One decision by an injured soldier changes not only the fate of the universe, but the fate of her young son.
My Comments: Thace/Ulaz. I adore this characterization of the Blade, especially Ulaz as a scientist who is very smart and methodical, but also has almost too much heart and compassion. Baby Keith is perfect, and I was very satisfied with the ending, though I’m happy there are more stories in the series, too.

Lost in the Stars by WingedChickadee
Words: 3,440 (WIP 3/?)
Author’s Summary: They didn’t see him. They didn’t see the lion falling quickly towards the planet’s surface through the debris of broken Galra ships. They heard his shout of pain and shock, but not what happened. Six people all assumed he made it back to the castle, they didn’t notice the missing paladin. No one noticed. Not a batted eye or turn of a head.When the paladin wakes up, he is injured and alone. Now, he has to try and survive until he can find a way home.
My Comments: Oh no, LANCE. This is very well-written and scary, and I really need more.

lost & found by luoup (ravenic)
Words: 7,006
Author’s Summary: The wormhole has been rent apart by Haggar’s magic, and the Paladins are lost.
My Comments: Really lovely little fic. A well-done take on the post-season 1 scenario, with an excellent conclusion that made me happy-sigh.

Under Pressure, I Break by Emerald_Ashes
Words: 2,728
Author’s Summary: Lance was more hurt than he let on after their visit to the water planet where the wormhole spat them out. His injuries are aggravated further during their fight with Ulaz, and then the Robeast. When it finally becomes apparent just how injured he is, Hunk can only blame himself.
My Comments: Hance. I love love LOVE the focus on Hunk in this fic. Though Lance is the one physically hurt, Hunk is the one who needs to be loved and reassured. Lovely little fic.

Go the Fuck to Sleep by nerdiekatie
Words: 1,745
Author’s Summary: He’s glad the paladins only have a low-level telepathic connection. Shiro is one hundred percent sure that if he could everything Pidge is feeling, he would be on his ass. As it is, Shiro has the distinction impression that Pidge can see time and taste shapes right now.
My Comments: I take back what I said earlier. They really REALLY need to protect her. Mostly from herself.

You’re Our Sharpshooter by safety_dancer for spacekidwrites
Words: 1,302
Author’s Summary: My take on how Shiro reacts to hearing Lance call himself Voltron’s seventh wheel.
My Comments: Very sweet little fic. I want something like this to happen so bad.

Out of Phase by LittleWhiteTie
Words: 6,571 (WIP 2/4)
Author’s Summary: Shiro is lost, only able to contact the paladins during their dreams. He helps them through their nightmares when they need him the most, but it’s getting harder and harder to find them as he starts to lose track of what’s real and what’s imagined. He’s losing his grip on this reality, and his sense of self is beginning to fall apart. He’s going to need their help to get back before he disappears entirely.
My Comments: FANTASTIC Post-S2 concept, just amazing. GAH, it makes me hurt, but it’s so lovely. Really, really want some more.

Audio/Visual Quest by Dynared21
Words: 15,298
Author’s Summary: Pidge and Lance have journeyed to a mysterious planet in order to find the technical details to Zarkon’s fortress…as well as a TV that they can hook up their Gamestation to! But who owns the mysterious collection they run across, and will the pair be able to escape with their gains? Or will they end up the newest exhibits of this collector?
My Comments: Really fun, action-packed, episode-like fic. I’m super happy that S2 has seemed to encourage more fics with Pidge and Lance interacting. They’re such a fantastic combo.

Feeling Blue by spitfire00
Words: 2,962
Author’s Summary: Lance is feeling worthless. Pidge reminds him just how important he is.
My Comments: Have I mentioned lately how much I love Lance and Pidge? Anyway, I love the way she just shoves her way in there and refuses to leave. Lance needs a stubborn little sister to love him.

The Long Walk Home by nerdiekatie
Words: 5,488
Author’s Summary: What happens when you get your unexpected and unwanted period in space? What happens when your armor doesn’t have pockets for your inhaler? On a stealth mission, Pidge and Hunk are stranded and forced to walk to the Green Lion. They’re racing against time and their own bodies. Will they make it back?
My Comments: This fic is GRUELING, but I love seeing the two geniuses of Team Voltron being badass and strong despite their unique difficulties.

Weekend Guests by TheBeckster
Words: 6,906 (WIP 1/?)
Author’s Summary: Voltron had been too late. They hadn’t been able to stop the Galra this time. As the Paladins pick their way through a leveled city, they come across a group of survivors and find themselves way out of their element. Everyone except Lance, that is.
My Comments: Fantastic start! I love Lance with kids, and he’s particularly competent and wise and adorable here. The kids all feel like kids with their own personalities, which can be tricky. Waiting patiently for more. (Not that patiently.)

Big Stick Diplomacy by windscryer
Words: 3,496
Author’s Summary: Keith is bad at diplomacy, but he is trying. Pidge… not so much.
My Comments: Protective Pidge! Savage on Keith’s behalf! Everyone is extremely protective, too, but Pidge takes the cake. She will take you down if you even THINK about looking at her family funny, and Keith is her boy.

today did end up being very good. we drove in the empty farmer’s market lot and long boarded after … i don’t have much experience with either but my friend helped me & then let me eat the brownies she made … a keeper. i cried on the phone with my nana, we talked about a lot of feelings and moving forward with what i need to do and i’m just so thankful to have her in my life. there were some uncomfortable things today but i’m learning to brush them off and focus on better thoughts. i also think that sol’s eyebrows look like black caterpillars. goodnight







Hey y’all. if you guys would kindly consider supporting my patreon, buying prints, commissioning me, or buying future art books, that’d be really neat. I have a bunch of future expenses i need to pay (rent, food, gas, etc.) but it’s also important that I start saving. 

In about 2 years, my parents are selling the house and moving, probably to another state very far away. I can’t and won’t be going with them. I’ve talked to them, and they’d be open to letting me rent our house, the house my dad built and i’ve lived in my entire life. But theyre only considering it if i can prove im a Real Person TM (read as: person with reliable income)

Further more, the real reason I want a more steady income is that my sister yelled at me and told me i wasn’t allowed to have an opinion on anything until i was a Real Person TM so i 100% am being a spiteful bitch and i want to rub this shit in her face so yeah internet help me be a spiteful bitch and support my art thanks :) 

Dear Mr. McCracken, 

Thank you so much for the incredible cartoons you have made! I love every single one of them and they have brought me incredible amounts of joy throughout my life. Especially Wander Over Yonder. When I am feeling sad, this show never fails to cheer me up. Whenever things turn bleak, I remind myself that the darkest of times call for the sunniest of smiles. Whenever someone is in need, I tell myself that it never hurts to help. Whenever I am faced with a challenge, a message from the show is always there to help me get through it. Wander has taught me so many valuable lessons and I strive to become a better person every single day. 

My sister and I laugh so much whenever we watch the show. Even episodes that we have seen over and over again, make us smile just as much as they did when we first watched them. Thank you so much for being a constant source of happiness in our lives. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  • Me before tumblr: I don't have friends and I dont care cuz I dont need them I hate everyone.
I went to see Power Rangers today and I’m crying (no spoilers)

I don’t know what I expected from this film, but being moved to the brink of crying by the representation in it was definitely not it. 

Some of you might already have heard that there is a black autistic character in the film, but may be a little wary of him. And of course you are, we all know how autistic people are portrayed in films. We’ve all seen autism used as a plot point and the characters treated as a burden, or as emotionless droids that need people to take care of them and teach them how to love. 

So I hope you can being to imagine my overwhelming joy at having seen us represented so beautifully today. To find an autistic character who isn’t just portrayed as having a developed personality and inner personal life, but who is the heart of the entire team. Jason might be their leader, but Billy is without question their emotional center. The one who is excited to be a hero. The one who treats virtual strangers as his closest friends. The one who loves them so deeply that it hurts him to see them fight. He even stims when he’s excited, which was something that was so great to see. 

Okay, so the film itself has a lot of story issues, and I know a bunch of fuck boys are going to be ripping into for mangling the story or whatever, but please, please go see this film. If not because of how highly enjoyable it is - because it really is amazing fun to watch - then to see an autistic character who is treated like a human being. A black male character no less, who is the most emotional and friendly and open person on the team. 

I’m so, so happy that kids are going to get to see Billy Cranston. I’m so, so happy that autistic kids are going to be able to see themselves on screen portrayed in such a positive light. 

Thank you Power Rangers, for being the representation that we deserved

ayahina headcanon & flowers🌸

*elevator music playing in the background*

I thought about writing this but I’m not sure if I will, so for now, I will write a small headcanon because I need to share this or it will die in my throat. 

so, we all know that Hinami is now the mischevious fairy, and she likes flowers. She likes flowers a lot. She’s also the light of Goat, bringing coffee to everyone when they are tired from work, or just offering them encouraging words to cheer them up when hope seems lost. She’s that spark of life inside a place that sometimes gets darker than death, and everyone’s faces brighten a bit more every time she’s near. So whilst everybody are working hard and making plans and being busy, Hinami likes to buy flowers and give them to everyone while no one’s looking. She would buy different types of flowers depending on each person—hydrangeas for Touka, roses for Tsukiyama, etc etc—she would place a couple flowers inside Touka’s empty cups so she would find them inside at the time of making coffee. She likes to place random flowers on Tsukiyama’s head when he’s sleeping. She gives Naki and Miza the same kind of flowers (wink wink) and hides white flowers inside Kaneki’s mask/books—which is super cool because then the mask and books smell delicious. So, one day, Ayato was kinda bored.

“Ugh, what a shitty day, there’s nothing to do.”

but Touka looks at him with that bitchy-sassy Kirishima expression. 

“There’s nothing to do, huh? then be useful for once and go buy me some coffee beans.”

“Huh? No way. Ask the four-eyes idiot to do it.”

then beautiful Hinami magically appears, hearing the conversation, and she’s like “oh! are you going out? let’s go together! I ran out of flowers, I have to buy more.”

And Ayato is like, “w-what? but—”

Hinami grabs him by the arm, dragging him out of the store and Touka huffs, staring at the way Ayato follows Hinami with no objections. She sighs, resuming her work, while Ayato follows an eager Hinami way to the flower shop. Once they arrive, Ayato blurts out a sigh and says “ugh, Hinami… what are we even doing here…”

but Hinami keeps walking and taking a closer look at each flower.

“I want to buy the same flowers for onee-chan and onii-chan this time, but I’m not sure which ones should I choose.”

Ayato kinda giggles like pffff, good luck with that, and he follows her super bored because he thinks the flower shop is stupid until Hinami screams, making him jump in his place, and she grabs a flower and shows it to him super excited.

“Look! It looks like a rabbit!”

Ayato frowns, looking at the flower. It kinda looks like a rabbit, the petals imitating the large and fluffy ears, but he shrugs still. He doesn’t get it.

“So what?”

She gasps, overwhelmed.

“What do you mean by so what? It means that it’s your flower! Come on, let’s buy these instead.”

“Hina, what the hell, don’t—”

She obviously doesn’t listen, she pays for the flowers and once they leave the shop, she starts taking some flowers out of the bouquet and tells Ayato to hold the bag for a second.

“What are you doing?”

“Stay still,” she responds, and Ayato paralyzes when her hands travel to his mussed hair. “I’m gonna make you a crown.”

Ayato’s body quivers and stares at her like crazy.

“What the fuck—”

“Ayato, behave!” she scolds. She doesn’t like when he cusses. “It’s just a crown.”

He tries to pull away, snorting.

“Hinami—f-fuck… stop it, everyone’s watching us!” the boy is in pain. “I’m gonna look like an idiot!”

And people was already staring at them. 

“Okay, okay!” she gives up, sighing in frustration. “No crown. Just rabbit ears.”

“Are you fucking kidd—”

“Ayato,” she warns, looking serious as hell. “Rabbit ears.” 

After an intense gaze that lasts for almost twelve seconds, Ayato sighs, cheeks dyeing red, and murmurs a sheepish and stilled “okay.”

Hinami smiles brightly and she’s like YAAAAAAY and Ayato’s heart stops and she turns the flowers into beautiful bunny ears that decorate Ayato’s head. “You look so cute,” she finishes, proud of herself, and Ayato can’t find the courage to answer, he’s way too embarrassed to even look at her in the eyes.

They leave to buy the coffee beans and once he has forgotten that he has rabbit ears on top of his head, he looks at her.

“What about your flowers?”

“What do you mean?”

“You are picking up different flowers for everyone like a psycho. But which ones are your flowers?”

She smiles, and her fingers travel to the pretty hairband decorating her hair.

“Clovers,” she answers, like sharing a powerful secret. “I like the white four-leaf clovers, but those are hard to find, I haven’t seen them in that store.”

Ayato doesn’t reply, and once they arrive at :re again, Ayato has to deal with Touka and Nishiki mocking at his rabbit ears. 



two days later, after staying up till late helping Miza with some stuff, Hinami went to sleep and stood in bed all day until afternoon, feeling the sunlight caressing her cheeks through the window. She blinked a couple times, sighing, and when she opened her eyes, she found a small bouquet of white clovers with four leafs on top of the pillow, right in front of her face. With drowsy eyes, her fingers grabbed the flowers, suddenly remembering her previous confession to Ayato days ago. Her heart fluttered a little, and placed the flowers against nose, smelling the sweet fragrance. 

Her lips curve into a beautiful smile as her eyes fall shut again.

TMNT fans who like to critique and love the show

FYI, if you want to rant and vent and complain without being judged for being confrontational, or yelled at to stop watching, @lightningrooks came up with the tag #tmntcritical. Anyone who applies the tag can vent about what bothers and annoys them, but if you start getting too judgemental about other fans’ opinions, we reserve the right to yell at you.
This references back to my post about being able watch, love, and criticize the show without people grumping “just stop watching” because that is not how fandom, or life, works.

Romance Headcanons for Dazai

Romantic/Sexual Life - He has absolutely none.

  • He’s not interested in having a romantic relationship, and doesn’t think much about sex, but that doesn’t mean he won’t appeal to people's’ sexual weaknesses if it benefits him. There always needs to be an advantage.
  • Despite being emotionally manipulative, he practically prefers his significant other to understand he needs them to be independent of him. He’s a very social person, and actually doesn’t like to be tied down because there are many things he has to do - there are many things he’s up to. This makes finding a significant other particularly difficult for Dazai, so it will never be a long relationship - unless that person is different from a regular human being.
  • Since he will never be in a long relationship, everything for him is on and off. He’ll let you use him if he sees something good for both parties. 
  • Dazai can be affectionate- it’s the trade to being a convincing lover.
  • Dazai can’t fully love someone. Having grown up in a live-or-die environment, the idea of romantic love saving his black mafia soul is pretty laughable. He’s not hard on himself per say, but his upbringing has definitely put too many walls on him for anyone to crack and for him to let his barrier down. Even if he tries to, it’s instinctual for him to be wary and never let anyone know his deepest thoughts - because no one needs to know, and they will never understand his process of thinking.
  •  If anything it’s platonic love that makes him to feel a little less lonely. If his friends can’t understand him, then his romantic partner won’t be able to either.

ugh. fuck life sometime.

my friend just called. my goofy amazing hilarious loving friend. and told me his mom has pancreatic cancer. and I hate it because I’m awful at comforting people and I don’t know what to do or say that doesn’t sound like a cliche and it just sucks. I feel so bad and I have no idea why I’m typing this all out but I just felt like I needed to reiterate how badly life can suck sometimes and how much I need to remember to tell people I love them and live life while I’m still here.

so I love you guys. <3 I mean that whole-heartedly. and you can always come talk to me about serious stuff or funny stuff or things about our characters or about your life or whatever floats your boat. I’m here.

#thankyoubones week: day 12 - 1 bones cast final thank you

Wow, what can I say that could possibly give you an idea of how much this cast means to me?

Bones changed me. It taught me so much about life, love and friendship. About moving forward, about taking risks, about not living your life with regrets. It taught me there’s nothing wrong with taking a step back if you need perspective. That you can change your mind about stuff you swore you would never do, and still be yourself. That life takes many turns and sometimes the only thing you can do is sit back and enjoy the ride.

If it hadn’t been for the amazing cast, I doubt I would have loved Bones as much as I do. Because they portrayed these characters in a way that I was able to connect with them, even though they aren’t “real”. Why quotation marks? Well, because they are real in my mind, and in the minds of those who have loved Bones for years. Only great actos manage to give you characters that stay with you forever, long after the movie/show is over.

And I know Temperance Brennan, Seeley Booth, Angela Montenegro, Jack Hodgins, and Camile Saroyan will stay with me forever.

Emily, David, Michaela, TJ, and Tamara, thanks for everything.

I will miss you, guys.

I know you're an activist in terms of ethics, but I've always found using the health aspect of veganism much more inviting to the general population. People don't care, a lot of them honestly don't care about suffering; human or animal. But when their own life comes under risk, they seem to perk up a bit. When talking with my friends and family, I always use health as the starting point, and find them more receptive to ethics. Do you have trouble starting out straight with/just with ethics?

I only ever approach health in a side-benefits sort of way, and as a way to establish the ethical principle. You can discuss the ethics of meat eating because we don’t need to eat meat, because doing so is a free choice, so you need to know about health in order to put that view forward. The issue is, there is no health reason to go vegan. There are health reasons to eat vegan, but there is no health reason to not wear fur, for example. If you make someone vegan because of health, as soon as the next fad study about how fish is “brain food” comes out they’ll be straight off the bandwagon. Besides, you can be healthy while consuming animal products, and I think as a movement I think we need to stop pretending that isn’t true. 

 Veganism is fundamentally not about health, it requires the adoption of an ethical principle and the acknowledgement of speciesism. I’ve never met a “health” vegan who was a real, actual vegan, but I’ve met plenty of people with plant based diets but “flexible” with everything else, and I’ve met people who initially went vegan for health, but later adopted the ethical side. If health is your way in with someone then absolutely explore that, but at its heart it has to be about ethics. If you get someone to adopt a vegan diet because you tell them it’ll reduce their chances of cancers you haven’t made them vegan; you haven’t shifted their ethical perspective, all you have done is make them eat vegetables. 

Personally I’ve never found it difficult to start out with ethics. It’s something humans are comfortable talking about and are used to doing so; we all discuss rights and wrongs on a daily basis and most of us have strong moral principles, even if they’re all very different. The thing the majority of people can agree on is that we shouldn’t hurt animals unnecessarily and that we should try to avoid causing harm, and that is exactly what veganism is all about.
