but this part is just great

okay but like

revolutionary concept:

instead of making musicals with great male friendships that end up being a better relationship than the one with the ‘female crush’ and get shipped by a big part of the fanbase

we start making musicals with

gay characters

to a lot of goths “nu goth” is like a bad word. But i think the style has come a long way since 2010, you can do a lot more with it now. To me goth is music and a state of mind, its a subculture and its a lot more than just fashion, fashion is just one great part of it. I dont think you need to dress goth to appreciate it so i dont like when other goths hate on nu goth. I think nu goth is the best addition to goth fashion that we’ve had in a long time and ive seen people mix it up and really make it their own. Nu goth can look cool but also be casual. It can be comfortable and a way for people to be able to express their love for goth in places that they cant always dress up, like the work place. i personally like to blend aspects of nu goth style with 80′s traditional goth style. i know plenty of goths who dress nu goth who appreciate the subculture and its music so i really hope that one day, nu goth wont be so looked down upon by other members of the goth community.

What's with the alcoholism post? You also don't seem to be enjoying reyes week between your posts today and the deleted ones last night.

LOL call me out why don’t you nonny.

Like, at the risk of getting unfollowed and possibly provoking ire from a general corner of the Reyes fandom: no, I am not enjoying this Appreciation Week. So get ready for this big word vomit of a vague post.

There are posts that are referring to alcoholism as cute and sexy, which imo is just really insensitive and romanticizing an addiction many struggle with. It’s one thing to portray him (whether by fanfiction or fanart) enjoying his favorite bottle of whiskey or relaxing with a drink. It’s wholly another to do that and THEN label it in the cutest terms possible as alcoholism. The last part is an entirely added step that didn’t have to be there.

I also don’t mean to generalize, because a lot of great fanart and fanficlets are being written for this week. However, I am just kind of done with Reyes as the scary Latino lover who lets their lily white Ryder enjoy what it’s like being “dark.” 

There’s a history of this trope being used; there’s a history of literary examples of Latino characters allowing for white protagonists to explore a darker side to them in completely romanticized terms. It’s a history of white people writing people of color as an intrinsically other and morally compromised without any exploration of systemic issues, of social strictures that place them in such positions, etc.

To clarify, I do think Reyes is a morally complicated character who sees contrivance and murder as necessary. Yes, even the collective has a torture chamber, but these are standard espionage practices done by any military or militarized faction. To ascribe these actions to one individual as a symptom of how inherently “dark” he is makes me wonder whether people have ever heard of Machiavellian politics, and whether they understand these political intrigues occur as part of the US capitalist imperialist machine to begin with (and NOT with sadistic spicy Latino lovers).

Don’t even get me started on the shipping wars with bierasure, in which one side makes really misogynistic statements using the pretext of criticizing bierasure (as if bisexuality means only ONE gender can fit the bill and receipts need to be pulled to prove one’s bisexuality). 

By the way, for all this talk about racism when people were being critical about Andromeda, I see none of you ever supporting Ryders of color or Ryders made by writers of color. There is even much fewer people respecting Latino culture that goes behind a character like Reyes. 

And it’s funny how selective some of my followers get. They have no problem liking and reblogging things I post that let them enjoy this vision of Reyes undisturbed, but the moment I call out problematic fandom participation, these posts get (WEIRDLY) ignored. 

So at the risk of being that blog that calls people out for problematic bullshit and getting unfollowed for it, here’s the fucking tea.

Is there a part three to the Yen/Geralt head cannons? The first two are so great! ❤️

I COULD DO THIS ALL DAY

- Geralt cooks dinner for them in nothing but an apron
- Yen never tells anyone, but she sleeps in Geralt’s tunic when he is away (being a witcher and shit)
- Geralt loves giving hickies on the inside of her thighs while she just loves giving them on his neck
- Geralt has to lift Yen up by the waist to get things on the top shelves
- Yen and Geralt attended Dandelion and Priscilla’s wedding and they wore matching black outfits
- they love bathing each other
- they often have ~friendly~ competitions (in gwent and combat abilities) which often result in them not speaking to each other for hours
- Geralt likes to garden and planted a lot of lilacs
- Geralt has only seen Yen cry once and it was because of Ciri
- Geralt taught a reluctant Yen how to swim
- Yen hates Geralt with anything but long hair
- Yen has a pretty singing voice but Geralt only catches her when she’s lost in thought

——————————————————————————————-

Y/N hadn’t even wanted to go to Scott’s party. It wasn’t even on her radar until Peter had started pestering her about it. If only she hadn’t have caved to his relentless begging. Then, she wouldn’t be there surrounded by cheap beer and listening to stupid pop songs. Then, she wouldn’t have been locked in the Summers’ coat closet for seven minutes, nose to nose with her best friend. Stupid Jean, with her stupid mind-reading. Why couldn’t she just keep her little match-making games to herself?

Peter groaned, “Assholes.” Y/N smiled and rubbed her neck, nervously. She couldn’t tell if it was the close proximity or the fact that they were in a closet, but the air felt muggy and thick.

“I’m sorry I convinced you to come. Scott told me it would just be him, Kurt, and Jean. I know you don’t like things like this.”

Y/N shrugged and pushed some hair out of her eyes, only for it to fall back into her face again. Peter laughed and tucked the strand behind her ear.

“I don’t know", Y/N gave a little smirk. ”It wouldn’t be that bad if they actually played some decent music.” 

“Right? Scott’s got horrible taste. We need some classic rock in this joint. Anything harder than Madonna.”

Y/N laughed and looked down at her feet. Jean had definitely picked the right closet. Their chests were practically pressed together. He smelled good. Like, green apples. Or laundry detergent. or both. Y/N shook the idea out of her mind and looked back up at him.

“How much time do we have left?” She mumbled, trying to pull herself back to reality. Peter glanced at his watch, lightly bumping noses with Y/N as he met her eyes again. She inhaled and tried to take a little step back. “Thanks Jean”, she thought to herself.  “Surely, this is what you meant to accomplish. Dangling my best friend in front of me like a piece of meat.”

“We still have five minutes…” Peter mumbled, his eyes still not straying from hers. There was a silence. Y/N exhaled and looked up at the ceiling. She felt like if she didn’t look away now, she’d never stop staring at him. Peter sighed and pulled back a little bit.

“Look, I’m not trying to pull anything, or whatever. So if that’s what you’re so worried about-”

“Wait…What?” Y/N frowned.

“I just…I’m not stupid, Y/N. It’s not like you’re into me, or anything. You just seem nervous and I would never want to make you upset…”, Peter groaned, still fumbling for the right words.

Without warning, a fist pounded on the door, startling Peter. Faint, muffled giggles could be heard from the other side.

“Four minutes!” Scott called.

Peter exhaled and buried his face in his hands, disheartened.

“I just didn’t want to make you feel like you had to…kiss me. Because, I know you don’t want to. I know you don’t want…me.”

Y/N replayed every word in her head, trying time and time again to process what he had said. Gently, as if she was afraid she would break him, she wrapped her hand around his wrist and pulled his hands from his face.

“Peter, what are you talking about?”

Her voice was barely above a whisper. Peter’s warm eyes widened with confusion. Maybe, even just a little bit of hope.

“If you don’t think I want you…”, She brought her hands to his face. They were shaky with adrenaline and the fear of rejection.

“Peter, you have never been more wrong.”

She smiled widely as she spoke, letting out a breathy laugh. Peter mirrored her smile, cupping her hand with his as he pressed his forehead against hers. She pushed her hand through his hair as he brushed his fingers over her waist. He couldn’t find the words. 

He decided he didn’t need them.

He looked up into her eyes. They were so close, he almost went cross-eyed. Then, in an insane, spout of courage, he swallowed his fear and brought his lips to hers.

He had always been so cocky and wild. She would have never imagined him to be like this. His lips were slow and shy and warm. God, he was so warm. Y/N just wanted to melt. Everything was soft, and Peter’s skin was intoxicating. She felt like she could lose herself in it. She wanted to kiss every inch.

He pressed her back gently into the wall behind them, her hands running through his hair again. He took in a little sharp breath at this, running his thumb over her jaw, lightly. He wanted to stay there forever. Lost in her. He hoped Jean lost track of time and no one ever bothered to open the door. Y/N smiled into the kiss pausing to take in a breath.

“What time is it?” she mumbled breathlessly, his lips still brushing against hers.

“I’ve lost track.” He smiled stealing one more, chaste kiss.

As if on cue, Scott banged on the door, “Thirty seconds! Make yourselves decent!”

Peter rolled his eyes. Y/N grinned and tucked a loose strand of hair behind his ear. He blushed and looked down at his shoes. Suddenly, the door flew back to reveal them standing innocently inside the closet.

Scott groaned, “Why do you guys have to be so boring?” 

Peter smirked knowingly and Y/N elbowed him lightly in the ribs. 

Boring Indeed.

😭Just Friends [Part 4] (Grayson x Reader)

Summary: Imagine being best friends with Ethan while you’re hooking up with his brother Grayson. What’s worse? Keeping it from him. You’re 22 while Gray is 18. You guys randomly met while you were hanging out with Ethan and well, things happened. But neither one of you wanted to be in a relationship, so instead you guys decided to just be friends…with benefits.

Warnings: 

A/N: Part 4 was written by the always lovely and beautiful @cassmoreiraxo aka @4odolans! Make sure to check out the parts before hand!

Part 3

Originally posted by painfulblisss

The entire drive home I was happy. I was happy that I didn’t end things with Grayson, and I did just have some pretty great sex, but deep down, knowing I was seeing Ethan soon was making me feel guilty. He was my best friend and I was keeping this huge secret from him. I got home and immediately took a shower because all I could smell was sex and Grayson’s cologne. I walked into my apartment and jumped into the shower. Once I got out, I saw I had a text from Ethan.

Ethan: Don’t worry about meeting me there for pancakes tonight. I’ll come and pick you up. See you soon

With that being said I started to get ready. I put on distressed light washed high waisted jean shorts, a baggy camo shirt which I tied a knot in the middle of it so it hugged my curves better, I left my curly hair down and started on my makeup. Ethan texted me saying he was downstairs waiting for me and for me to hurry because “he was so hungry that he was withering away into nothing.” No wonder he’s the Drama King of the Dolan Twins. I put on my white converse and headed downstairs. The ride there we jammed out to music and laughed. I loved Ethan he was my best friend and I felt like such a shitty person for hiding this from him.

We pulled into the Pancake House and got seated. We both ordered what we wanted and started talking.

“Is everything okay Y/N? You’ve been acting kind of strange the past couple of weeks.” Ethan asked me looking concerned.

“I’m okay Ethan. Just stressed with work. You know not all of us can be successful YouTubers” I smirked at him. He lightly kicked me under the table, which caused both of us to laugh. But then I noticed his face fell.

“Why didn’t you tell me?” Ethan asked not looking up from his place mat. I didn’t say anything, but I knew what he was talking about. “I know what’s been going on Y/N. I’m not stupid.” Ethan looked at me for a second then looked away from me. He couldn’t have known about Grayson and I. We’ve been so careful.

“What are you talking abou—“ Ethan cut me off before I could finish my sentence.

“I know about you and Gray. I know you guys have been having sex. A couple of days after you and I made that video of us baking for YouTube, I found panties under the couch. Gray is always coming home late and usually on the nights Gray is too “busy” to hang out with me and I text you to see if you want to hang out, your phone never works, or you’re busy, or you’re napping. I warned you about him Y/N. What you guys have going on, being fuck buddies isn’t right.” Ethan let out a frustrated sigh. “How could you do this to me?” Ethan clutched his fist.

“I’m so sorry Ethan. I didn’t mean for all of this to start but, when it did, I thought it was a one-time thing. Than that one time thing lead to another, which lead to another and now we are here. I never wanted to lie to you Eth, but Gray and I just didn’t want to hurt your feelings.” I looked at Ethan and I saw the hurt in his eyes.

“I told Gray that you guys couldn’t date when you guys first met. I’ve known he had feelings for you Y/N. But even if you guys do decide to date or whatever, do you really think it’s going to work out? You can’t date. You know the age difference between you guys. That’s weird.” Ethan looked at me and waited for me to say something.

“That’s what you’re concerned about? You know your brother has feelings for me and you’re concerned about our age? He’s a big boy Ethan. He can make his own decisions. I know that’s not it Eth. You use to joke about me and you getting together or you hooking me up with your brother. What’s really wrong?” I stared at my best friend, trying to read his face for an answer, until he finally spoke up.

“He doesn’t do relationships Y/N. But if he did, let’s say and you guys broke up, that’s going to make things change between us. Not only is he my brother, but also he’s my twin brother. You and I wouldn’t be able to hang around as much because he wouldn’t want to run into you and you wouldn’t want to run into him. You probably wouldn’t want to be around me as much because him and I look so much alike. I can’t lose you as my best friend.” Ethan looked back up at me and we just stared at each other. He ran his fingers through his hair as though he is frustrated with this conversation as much as I am.

“Ethan, we aren’t dating and even if we did and broke up, no one and I mean NO ONE is ever going to come between us, I promise.” I grabbed Ethan’s hand from across the table and gave it a squeeze. We both just smiled at each other and our pancakes finally came. We ate and talked about anything to break the awkward tension between us. We finished up, paid our check and left.

“Let’s have a best friend night. I think Grayson went to hang out with Jack so let’s go back to our place and watch a movie. Just us. No Grayson and no more talking about him.” Ethan threw his arm around my shoulder as we started to walk over to his car.

I felt like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders because Ethan knew. I knew I had to end things with Grayson because it could ruin my relationship with Ethan and I valued that more than having a good time with Grayson. Ethan wanted this to be best friends night, but the entire drive back to their apartment, he made it very clear that he didn’t approve of what was going on. We parked at their apartment complex and started to head upstairs. Ethan had just told a really bad joke in the elevator so I was making fun of him as he opened the front door to Grayson looking absolutely amazing and putting on his shoes. We made eye contact and I let out an airy breath.

“You’re going to Jacks now?” Ethan asked Grayson as he shut the door and put his keys on the table. I walked over to the fridge to grab Ethan and I a water bottle when I stopped dead in my tracks.

“Nah, I’m actually just leaving now because I’m going on a date. Don’t wait up Ethan, goodnight and see you Y/N.” With that he shut the door, which left Ethan and I alone in a very quiet apartment.

“I told you Y/N, he doesn’t do relationships.” Ethan looked over at me standing there.

“I’m okay Ethan. It’s not like we’re dating. He can date whoever he likes. I can’t do anything about it. We made a deal, no strings attached.” I looked down at my feet and biting the inside of my cheek.

“Okay, ew gross. I don’t want to hear about some sex deal you made with my brother, which I don’t approve of. He’s going to hurt you Y/N. Get out while you still can.” Ethan walked over and hugged me.

“I’m fine Ethan. I don’t like your brother. Now common, let’s watch a movie. I’ll get it started while you go get the candy.” I walked over to the couch and sat down with my legs crossed under me.

I can’t believe he is actually on a date with someone. I can’t believe I’m starting to fall for him.

Oh, fuck.

anonymous asked:

For the anon with a crush on their best friend: 1. figure out if you two have compatible sexualities. If the answer is no, focus on the fun part of that feeling and/or try to move on. 2. If yes, decide whether or not you want to act on it. Some crushes are just fun! Some crushes are more serious and you want them to be a relationship. 3. Drop hints. Don't be subtle. Say, "that almost felt like a date" when you hang out. 4. If it doesn't work, ask them out. Be direct. It'll be scary. Good luck.

This is some great advice, thanks nonny!

anonymous asked:

ok I know we love the tassel but can we talk about The Look when malec were on the phone. The grey streak and light eye shadow and the fact that Magnus was literally wearing the night time sky as a shirt

PLEASE I KNOW he looked so good!! the smokey taupe eyeshadow was back which i love; it’s kind of his signature look and i adore it. i loved seeing him get ready while casually on the phone with alec. i wish we could have seen a little more of it, with him selecting a piece of jewelry or a necklace, but this was great, too.

that shirt looks amazing on him. my favorite part is  always how much you can’t quite place him in a specific period of time by his clothes. like the stuff he wears isn’t altogether vintage, but nor is it entirely modern. it’s just kind of…a step outside of time entirely, which i think suits him perfectly.

I just finished the Great Comet part of W&P, and the main thing that struck me was how sad I felt for Andrei? In Great Comet we really don’t know him and then he’s like “lmao I’m not taking Natasha back”. But in W&P, we know him so well and we’ve seen him struggle so hard to find something he loves, and seeing him lose Natasha, the one person who made him happy, was so tragic.

Eleteo part 4! With half of it devoted to just the hand-holding scene.

4. There’s a vase of red roses behind them you can’t tell me that doesn’t mean something.

8. Not exactly Eleteo but her smirk when he says “I’m not changing any diapers” is great.

I’m going to tag this under Fantastic Prompts, even though it only loosely follows the prompt, but it still works? I worked in books and anniversaries, so it kinda works, right? 

I’ve had this little vision of Newt & Tina reuniting like this for awhile now, and the prompt inspired me to actually get it down and out of my head. Hope you enjoy.

Feedback is amazing!

I’m also going to go ahead a fill the first part of the prompt, and include a little blurb here about how I got into Harry Potter. My great-grandmother gifted me with the first book when I was young. She really was the first person to inspire me to love reading, not just Harry Potter, but reading in general. There’s a lot of books in my collection that were gifts from her, and that I will always cherish. 

anonymous asked:

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your opinions on soriku. supportive soriku blogs are really what i am looking for. i've seen a lot of negativity and shaming from the casual kh fandom about soriku. people on tumblr and twitter are mostly supportive or just don't ship it and that's fine,but comment sections on youtube videos,reddit posts etc are very hateful and toxic and i really don't need this toxicity in my life. your art is great and also you are great. i hope you have a nice day

I don’t participate a lot in the fandoms, like really. The only thing that I do is drawing fan art, I am not part of a lot of communities and I don’t say my opinion much because most of the communities are really toxic and I prefer to stay out of it… But I am happy that you felt support of my part, it’s better to stay away of all that toxicity and hope that you find comfort in this little art blog. You are welcome.

My 13yo sisters writes another chapter: Evan x Reader feat: fidget spinner The first date.

The things in parentheses are things she said while writing this.

The setting: history class.

You’ve been waiting all day nervously for your first date. (Actually just just say date. Not t first date. No) finally the bell rang that was the last class of the day, as you were heading to your locker to get your stuff you heard a familiar voice call

“Y/n”

“Evan!” You turn around with a great big smile on your face (mumbles* fuck* bc she dropped her spinner*) as soon as he gets close enough YOU give him a great big hug and smile at him (she is currently trying to spin her spinner on my Les Mis vocal book)

“Hi Catherine! Are you excited for our date tonight?” (I mean- I mean Y/n)

“I sure am! What do you have planned anyway?”

“It’s a suprise” he said (I actually have no clue what their gonna do. Like, no fucking clue.)

After school you and Evan get in your car and he shows you the way to where your date is at (*drops fidget spinner on her face and whispers “I am. The master spinner”)

Your first destination was the movie theaters. He knows how much you wanted to see Everything Everything so he surprised you by taking you to see it. (Balances fidget spinner on thumb and says “Luke I am Your Father”*)

You did notice something though Evan stared at you more than the movie with cheeks as red as roses ( laughs then sighs* I’m so fucking white)

When the timing was just right during the movie you lean over and give Evan a little kiss on the cheek (hurry the FUCK up ellie you’re taking so long) after the movie was over he took you to one of the nicest restaurants you could thing of, Cicis Pizza. (I love Mac and Cheese Pizza, FUCK YEAH)

(Fuck my braces hurt)

He kept complimenting your dress you have and hair and what beautiful eyes you have. ( me: Is Evan little red riding hood? 13yo: I don’t - *sighs* shut up.)

Once you were done eating you decided to go play in the arcade, Evan even won you a stuffed animal out of the Claw machine. After cicis pizza he said he had one more place planned. (SpInNeR! *pronouce pinair*) surprisingly he took you to the beach and you looked at the sunset together (me: how did they get to the coastline? 13yo: use your fucking imagination.)

After that you dropped Evan off at his house.


“Do you wanna stay for a while I mean my mom doesn’t come home till late from work?” (Shut up Ellie don’t make this gross)

You nodded your head YOU and Evan sat silently on the couch and then he started singing to you because you thought it was the most beautiful thing you’ve ever heard. It eventually got really late and Evan said “my mom will be home soon”

“I should be heading home anyway”

As Evan walked you out to your car, you slightly gave him a little peck on the lips. You both said bye and as you pulled out of the driveway You waved goodbye and he watched until he couldn’t see your car anymore.

A/n 13yo: thank you for reading my fanfic, I’m sorry if it was very cheesy I’m sorry that you just wasted like five minutes of your life

my kpop mom!!! i hope you're doing well. please get enough sleep and food. take care of yourself. love you~

Hi sweetheart,

Actually, I’m not so great today. I am very sad, as I lost a dear family member today. My cousin’s wife of 40 years lost her long battle with cancer this morning. She has been a vital part of family gatherings and get-togethers since I was a teenager. She will be sorely missed. I think I’m just gonna watch sad kdramas and cry for a while. 

Sorry guys, don’t think I’ll be posting much today. I hope you understand.

Thanks for thinking about me! Love you too sweetie, take care!

A speech that embodies all that we have lost

“Friends, perhaps once in a generation, perhaps not so often, there comes a chance for the people of a country to play their part wisely and fearlessly in some great battle of the age-long warfare for human rights… We do not set greed against greed or hatred against hatred… Our creed is one that bids us to be just to all, to feel sympathy for all, and to strive for an understanding of the needs of all. Out purpose is to smite down wrong.” -Theodore Roosevelt, Madison Square Garden, October 30th, 1912.

This is not the whole speech but I will try to research more of it.

anonymous asked:

Sorry to bother you but could you please explain harry hating zayn the most after he left the band. I'm new to the fandom and a bit lost. Wasn't it because zayn hurt louis or something like that. I also wanted to know you pov. I'd be really grateful if you could explain that to me. Thanks in advance and hope you're having a great day

Hi darling! Not a bother at all, please don’t apologise. Please keep in mind that this is just speculation and that none of the boys have ever said anything about this, and actually they act quite diplomatically and have never mentioned they are fighting/they have had a fight with Zayn. However, Harry clearly shows he is still very bitter towards him (‘zebra, where?’ and ‘the paperwork [was the worst part about Zayn leaving]’ are just a few examples).

If you go and look at the concert videos during OTRA even prior to Zayn’s departure from the band you can notice that the interactions between Harry and Zayn were at a minimum. Actually, there is also this one time when Harry called all of the boys’ names out loud… but Zayn’s. This suggests that whatever happened between the two of them was before Zayn officially left the band.

There could be multiple reasons for that, honestly. A theory I keep coming back to, though, is that things were supposed to change in 2015 and there was a lot of chatter in the fandom that Harry and Louis would come out in 2015 (things started to change in November 2014) but I wouldn’t be surprised if Zayn’s decision to leave changed the plans and that’s at least partly the reason why Harry is still so angry at him. Again, this is just speculation. I have no way of knowing what actually went down between the two of them.
