i see your ‘rose and kanaya going out on romantic candlelit gourment dinners’ date and raise you ‘rose dragging kanaya out to a graveyard to summon the spirits of the undead, eating cold lunchmeat on a tomb with paper plates, and making out behind a tombstone’ date
the woman, busy. shuffling hands passing dishes like magicians from cabinet to table. the muffled laughter of a shared joke that doesn’t pass outside the kitchen door. inside here is equal footing and slippery slopes both, grandmother clucks and takes the bowl because you’re stirring wrong and there should be more salt don’t you know; in-law pinches lips about full-fat milk pour. but here, land untouched by men, there is a warmth of kin. the woman dance, around toys on the floor, the art of raising house quietly, of asking nicely for help, of expecting refusal. the young girls who are already learning to whisk in and out, hands full of food, tight smile at lewd. the moment where young girls become young women, where they are handed salad or bread to serve, where they get the joke, where a door softly opens and they are home. something deep and secret and magic. unwork, unhard, unlabor. the keeping of beasts, who roughhouse and kick up heels, who drink beers and belch at televisions. the quieting of red-cheeked shouters, whose women know to duck, to insert crackers to calm hunger, to approach with gentle hands and speak in gentle words and gentle shushing of a loud soul. inside the kitchen she straightens, she eye-rolls, she whispers men and we all, women, we know.
You know what, Booth and Brennan will always be my #1 otp because they gave me so much as a couple. I mean, I’m not talking about sex or smut because that’s fanfiction material (like you go girl, want to see your fave ship bang on a piano? go and read that !!!! that’s what that website is for) but everything else. The ‘platonic’ aspect of their relationship has always been the best part of their dynamic to me, but they were still able to overcome that phase and be a family. This being said, that original dynamic has never been compromized, not to me at least, because when it comes to the important stuff, Booth and Brennan are still partners first, they are still the people they would give up their life for, they would fight for each other. While the majority of other ships kinda change once they get together. Booth and Brennan never completely changed, so much that people complain because they’d rather have them being romantic the 100% of the time. I don’t. Also, it’s the little things that matter to me, like it might sound stupid, but I find it extremely adorable and precious that Brennan knows Booth by knowing his injuries. Every time something happens, she’s able to compare factures and other stuff to Booth’s. And that’s so IC, that’s something I really want to see because it’s them. And it’s been this way since she first found out about his past in 1x15 and it never changed. She imagined him on that autopsy table in 11x01 by looking at the bones, just like it happened on 12x04 with Aldo and in other many occasions. Brennan saying like I know that because of your brain tumor. She knows his brain scans. YAAAS. Give me this stuff. Give me Booth and Brennan that can’t sleep without each other at night when one of them is struggling with something, give me them talking about taking someone’s life and carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Give me them hurting each other to save each other. They would never cheat on each other or hurt each other because they want to. They only do it because it’s the only way. Yaas. Screw sex, just give me this stuff.
are you excited about the soukoku movie akutagawaprize-senpai
I’m excited about the movie, yes, but despite the first poster revealed showing only Dazai and Chuuya, I am still convinced it is not a “soukoku movie”. Since the Dazai featured here is post-Dark Era Dazai, there is no good reason why Atsushi and the rest of the Agency members won’t be featured. Even though it’s a production that will make use of an original story, I want to believe Asagiri will supervise the staff so that the plot won’t stray too far from the original one.
By the way, I’ve always thought 55 minutes would have made fine movie material, though I can’t claim to not know the reason why they didn’t go with it.
[A/N] Gabrielle Aplin’s “Start of Time” is the song I think of when I think of Min Yoongi. A Pisces had the most tender heart, I believed. They love hard, fall hard, protect harder. Love a Pisces, they’re amazing.
“Loving him was the most beautiful mistake I’ve ever done, in my entire life. He was secure in his insecurities, he was perfect in his imperfections and is flawless in his flaws. He was just like me, in so many ways. Maybe that’s why, it couldn’t work.” Min Yoongi woke up with reading your articles. See, he had read many (if not all) of your writings, but this one felt very close to home.
“His dark orbs tend to pull me in more than I intend to delve in, and his smile makes me believe in fairy tales, and I don’t know if he knew that it hurts me, not able to tell him, how beautiful he is, like how he told me everyday, sun up and sun down.” It continued on. Your words flow seamlessly, as it was arranged, fore thought and clear. Everything was put metaphorically but Yoongi? Yoongi understood everything. It was written in a narrative mode, and it was painfully more honest than, what you have been writing–they often come off as half-hearted and pieces of bits of your life that you shared with your followers. But this one, this one was: Everything. Everything of that little part of your life.
Can we stop pretending we don’t know the reason that lesbian culture is in decline? (hint: it’s non-lesbians in our spaces, the queer, fluid, ‘you’re a close-minded fetishist’ soup). Like, nothing’s ever going to be done unless we step up and say “yeah, when we mean lesbian spaces, we means LESBIAN, not any other label, we mean homosexual women, and you’re not welcome bye”. Like, labelling us all as queer and not even so much as recognising that lgbt women are not a monolith is part of the problem.
