but somehow they persist

Why CS will never work for me:

among other reasons…

This is how Hook was written into the show. 
Getting emma for him was like some kind of conquest.
As soon as he saw her he had the hots for her while she was like: 
“dude get off it -it aint gonna happen”
Only then it DID.  So it’s literally as if belle had married Gaston. 
Him getting her was never about her or what she wanted
it was always about 
“i never thought i could love again so you WILL love me back” 

Once upon a time, not very long ago, white people commorated lynchings and attended them as cheery social outings, sometimes turning the occasion into family picnics. But all of a sudden, now even with police routinely caught on camera executing unarmed black people, courts still have trouble convicting killer cops? And somehow white people persist in asking for irrefutable proof of systemic anti-blackness, because even when murder is caught on film, it’s still not good enough since we can’t “prove” what’s in someone’s heart?

Please. If we let proving “what’s in someone’s heart” become the impossibly high standard of guilt, then the police will never be convicted for murdering black people.

An unarmed man getting shot in the back as he was running away, not presenting a threat, should be the most open and shut case of police brutality ever. And the fact that Michael Slager was filmed planting evidence on Walter Scott’s dead body should be proof enough as to what was in Slager’s alleged heart.

Anyone who doesn’t see racism is being willfully ignorant. They aren’t seeing it because they don’t want to see, because it it’s always been right there in front of all our faces.

I’ve noticed it long ago.
That no matter
how much
I extend my hand,
there are just
some things that
I’ll never be
able to reach.
And yet stubbornly,
I still extend this hand,
hoping that somehow,
I could reach you.
—  Mae, to reach you

“To admit that you love him. And I know that you do. Despite all your efforts to never let another heart touch yours. That’s assuming, of course you have one. That little persistent kid has somehow gotten in under the wire. And that’s what’s happened huh? Admit the truth. You love him, don’t you? I thought so. Then tell him..”

anonymous asked:

Not wanting to exist yet still somehow needing to persist in existing days are the worst. I too have days like that. I'm sorry you go through that as well. I don't have any cheery words, or platitudes, or plaudits, but I guess only a vague elucidation of a filamentous connection to you, your struggles and current state of mind.

I appreciate your message and consider it actually better that you don’t have any cheery words (etc.) since they never really help. 

Thank you for taking your time to write me.

Papa

Smoke filled the silence
That could have been your words.

Dark skin, darker than hers,
Thick digits, rising out of
A tick wrist, wrapped around
A thick magic stick that you’d
Suck and puff.

Everything was big with you.
A booming voice that shook
The trees you were so
Unfamiliar with, having
Always belonging to
The pavement.

A presence that demanded,
A jovial aggression,
A primal, Dionysian
Madness that made
Me want to test the flames too.
To close my eyes, while
Caution begged your ear,
And somehow enjoy the ride.

The biggest thing about you
Was your persistent mystery.
Pouring white lies like red wine
Into my bottle and my mind.
I swallowed and craved more
Hoping that through
The gallons I could
Form some distillate of truth.
Take earnest sips of you
And spit out the residue.

The smoke I’d twist like chains
Around my fingers were
Infinity more tangible
Than my knowledge
Of the great man who’s lap
I sat on.

But you smiled at me
And I was yours.
I wanted to prove it,
To be like you, never knowing
What that meant.

I found an old 11x14 sketchbook from a college art class and decided to give in to doodle fever.

Short version: Aged up the kids to adulthood, and refused to color anything. 

Details:


  • Wataru and Hayate have dark brown hair, while Miyako and Kei have black hair.
  • Miyako and Hayate have fluffy, un-spiked hair, while Wataru and Kei have hair that develops cowlicks.
  • Miyako did not have much in the way of eyelashes, but her eyes were very angular. Wataru’s were not.
  • Wataru did not own a single shirt that was not singed somehow, despite his and Miyako’s best efforts. He also had a persistent five o’clock shadow.

Bonus:

Blushy Miyako with a bun.

Good evening ✨✨

I’m sorry that it’s late at night 😭

Just now the final episode of Hakuouki SSL ended on MX2.
There will be 2 episodes on KBS Kyoto later.

(note: KBS Kyoto started airing them later on, hence why there’s still two left on there.)

And tomorrow there’s the distribution of the final episode on the Cinemart channel from 12 ‘o clock on 😊

I’m glad for all the people who were able to watch ☺️✨✨
Please treat me well.

After finishing the last episode,

Like I’ve said before in the past,

When I first heard of the live-action adaption of the very popular Hakuouki series, I was very nervous and felt a lot of pressure,
Moreover, when I heard I was allowed to play Hijikata Toshizou-sama
I got more and more nervous, and I wondered if I would be able to do well,

While I was studying Hakuouki, I really grew to like Hakuouki very much, above all I really came to like Hijikata Toshizou-sama, so I thought I had to somehow persist and do the best I could do.

I tried to do the best I could in my own way. I studied as well as I could.

And I’m really glad I was able to bring this work to everyone until the last episode.

So I was very happy I was able to be involved with the work called Hakuouki SSL and that I was allowed to play Hijikata Toshizou-sama.

Thank you very much for watching until the last episode m(_ _)m
