I’m watching an older season of Hell’s Kitchen and there’s a bit with a guy who had a shitty abusive childhood getting triggered (and like, nobody uses the word “trigger” but it’s pretty obvious: his eyes glaze over, he becomes spacey and disoriented, he bursts into tears at inopportune moments) by Gordon Ramsey calling him by a nickname he associates with his abusive father, and like, he explains this to Ramsey, and Ramsey is like “I totally understand and I’m sorry, I only wish you had told me about this sooner so we could have avoided this issue compromising your performance in the kitchen” and it’s like… there’s all these ridiculous anti-sj types who are like “TRIGGERS R DUM, NO TRIGGER WARNINGS IN REAL LIFE!!!!!!!!” and meanwhile Gordon fucking Ramsey, the guy whose JOB it is to berate people until they break down on television, understands the validity of trauma-based triggers and is willing to work around them? like come on
No amount of canceled shoots or miscommunication with potential subjects is going to make me give up on this. I’m on the cusp of living my dream. My dream doesn’t involve cheap tactics like getting half naked women in compromising situations and making them do ridiculous poses for a few likes on the gram. I’m in this for the art. I’m in this to express my genuine admiration for the human body and the individuality each and everyone possesses. Again, thank you to @jadasabrina for a day much needed.
hermione never expects anything for valentine’s day as she isn’t one for grand gestures of affection; she knows draco loves her and she loves him, and doesn’t need presents to confirm that
they do however buy each other one small item as a compromise
hermione buys draco practical items, like ties, cufflinks, a new wallet, or new boxers and socks
draco prefers to buy things he knows hermione will appreciate due to the way he picks them out for her
one year he bought her a keychain of an elephant with the trunk pointing upwards, because he knows she thinks they’re lucky
and on every valentines day morning, hermione wakes up and after giving draco a good morning kiss, goes to the kitchen and finds a bouquet of her favourite flowers sitting on the table and a card besides it
and she’d buy him a card too, with a small message inside, and they’d read each other’s as they sit on the bed eating breakfast
but the both of them always ensure that every day for the rest of the year, they don’t skimp on the romance because they don’t need valentines day to be an excuse to show their love for each other
Companions react to SS tripping and falling on top of them in a somewhat "compromising" position?
Cait: “Get off o’ me, ya weirdo!” Cait snaps, blushing furiously as she shoves Sole off. She didn’t bring it up, even though she admitted to herself that she sure wouldn’t mind being in that position again, only under different circumstances.
Piper: “Uhh, Blue? You mind?” Piper stutters, her cheeks burning. She squirms away from Sole, excusing herself quickly. The thought of Sole on top of her like that doesn’t leave her mind for a while.
Curie: “Oh! Madame/Monsieur, are you alright?” Curie says in a concerned tone. When Sole doesn’t reply, leaving them both in silence, she feels a fluttery feeling, and her cheeks begin to warm. Sole finally helps her up, and Curie graciously thanked them, though she still felt odd and confused, and decided she would ask Sole or someone else about that strange feeling later.
Danse: “S-soldier, I’d appreciate it if you could watch where you’re going,” Danse says, trying to keep his composure as he gets up, despite the fact that he was far from composed inside. He quickly mutters an excuse to leave, as he was feeling hotter by the second.
Deacon: “Hey- oh, hey boss. So, you come here often?” Deacon grins, getting into a ‘draw me like one of your french girls’ position. “Whew, is it hot in here, or is it just me?” He continues with more ridiculous pick up lines, lightening the mood and saving them both from an potentially awkward situation. Behind his jokingly flirty grin and his sunglasses, he knew that he wouldn’t forget that sight anytime soon.
Hancock: “Hey there, gorgeous,” Hancock grins flirtaciously. “You need help up, or are you happy down here? I know I am.” He chuckles about it and teases Sole about it from time to time, and makes sure to remember, and possibly ’re-enact’ that sweet little moment.
Valentine: Nick is relatively mature about it, helping Sole up in a gentlemanly fashion, earning a chuckle and an eye roll from Sole. He does joke about it occasionally though.
Preston: “Oh! General, sorry,” he apologizes quickly, despite Sole being the one who tripped, helping them up with a few more apologies, until Sole chuckles and politely hushes him. “General,” he nods, doing his best to regain his composure, grateful that his dark skin mainly hid his blush.
X6: “I suggest you watch your feet, ma'am/sir,” is all X6 says, pulling them to their feet and walking off, feeling the slightest something from that little moment, though he’d never admit it.
Do non-Australians know the story of how Canberra, our nation’s glorious capital, was founded? If not, gather round.
Most folks think Sydney or Melbourne is the capital of Australia, but no, that would actually make sense, and Canberra is not here to make sense. Canberra is here because Mum and Dad didn’t want to play favourites with the bickering children.
Basically, after Federation in 1901 when Australia became a country in its own right instead of just a bunch of Britain’s convict colonies, people couldn’t decide whether Sydney or Melbourne should be the capital. There was a huge rivalry between the cities (one that still exists today. Melbourne is better btw) and they squabbled and fought for YEARS over who would get it, until finally in 1908 they decided, “right. NEITHER of you get to be the capital.” They compromised by building a city entirely from scratch halfway between Melbourne and Sydney, smack-dab in the middle of the bush. Observe:
(Look at that tiny void of despair.)
For some reason the city planners also decided that grids and sensible
symmetrical roads weren’t desirable for the capital, so the city layout is a mess of circles and hexagons and triangles and weird geometrical shapes. Roundabouts. Roundabouts everywhere. And since it’s literally just Parliament House dumped in the middle of nowhere, the city is entirely surrounded by dense bush and there are real problems with kangaroos invading the suburbs, and every summer there’s a good chance it could burn down because of bushfires. It’s so far away from anything that no-one lives there unless they have to, and the people who have to live there are the ones who need to work there, and the ones who need to work there are all politicians. It’s a city full of Tony Abbotts, tbh. Truly a dismal, dismal place.
tl;dr Canberra is a tiny custom-built nightmare of roundabouts, kangaroos, fires and politicians that exists solely to punish us because Sydney and Melbourne were like bickering siblings who couldn’t get their shit together.
In the case of people who neither identify as primarily male nor female or don’t feel any sexual or romantic attraction, Mars merely shows the archetypal YANG energy of conquering, competetion, fight, aggression, drive and desire while Venus merely shows the archetypal YIN energy of love, pleasure, beauty, harmony, relating and compromising.
This does not really take into account bisexuals or homosexuals and I don’t want to claim that there is a “man” and a “woman” in homosexual relationships… I think it can vary which of those planets you identify with or which one you are attracted to, depending on, for example, whether you are doing the conquering (mars) or whether you’re the one being conquered (venus), whether it is romantic attraction (venus) or sexual attraction (mars) - it will most likely be a rather complex interplay.
has anyone else read laura amy schlitz’s work? i read splendors and glooms and a drowned maiden’s hair a few years ago and loved them so much and felt that, as a reader, i have found a kindred spirit writer who understands basically everything i want in a story
anyway, now i am reading the hired girl which i just found out about and i am only 20% in but have spent every page emotionally compromised and utterly enchanted
(like, the heroine keeps looking to jane eyre in times of trouble. girl, YESSSSSSSSS.)
Antis really loves Sam, I mean loser, peasant, cheater, womanizer, fame clinger, egoistic, vain, such bastard capable to flirt with a compromised woman and the list goes on...
Yep that they do! They say he follows half naked IG models so he has someone in his “ spank bank” . Don’t forget that they also like to claim he’s gay, when they have trouble connecting him to anyone on the wheel of Sam. Ain’t monkey love grand?
I adore your page! Honestly, its the first page I check out when I get on tumblr! It's completely intriguing! I wanted to ask, how do you feel about about an Aries and a Sagittarius in a relationship? Like the compatibility, the connection, the odds of it working out?
Aww, thanks so much! Aries and Sagittarius is a duo filled with very strong personalities and strong personalities often clash. I think it will be fun and exciting but the romance or “connection” may need time to develop. It can and it will if both learn to HEAR the other person and make compromises where it matters most.
so this is my weird compromise! i call it the “thotty rave ootd selfie tag” lmao (i am a lowkey thot i embrace it :’–]). just good concert days i had even though neither do they have my face nor are selfies. but i always considered the purpose of the selfie tag to be making the person behind the tumblr seem more real than some rando tumblr bot & i hope this manages to accomplish the same thing maybe maybe not lmao
tagging mutuals @penguinwoozi@svnteenish@vernonsama@dearjisoo, but it doesn’t have to be a selfie! just any picture (with your face or not) of anything you like :) nor do y’all have to do this too lmao my first tag was a month ago
back to your regularly scheduled programming of seventeen bye
this is the best article i’ve read IN.MY.LIFE.. It fucking gave me chills and seriously made me re-evaluate my life.
We’re not prepared. We’re not prepared for the sacrifices, for the compromises, for the unconditional love. We’re not ready to invest all that it takes to make a relationship work. We want everything easy. We’re quitters. All it takes is a single hurdle to make us crumble to our feet. We don’t let our love grow, we let go before time.
We’re a scared generation – scared to fall in love, scared to commit, scared to fall, scared to get hurt, scared to get our hearts broken. We don’t allow anyone in, nor do we step out and love anyone unconditionally. We lurk from behind walls we’ve created ourselves, looking for love and running away the moment we really find it. We suddenly ‘cannot handle it’. We don’t want to be vulnerable. We don’t want to bare our soul to anyone. We’re too guarded.
One day these kids are going to grow up and look back on how awful they treated others. How they hurt people and compromised someone’s mental health just because they were on a power high over false morality.
Apologizes are nice but the best I could hope for is that they use their experience to help people who are being victimized by the kind of bully they used to be.
What sucks is then they will face our challenges and see what it was like to be us, to say “stop hurting people over this stuff, this isn’t saving victims—it’s creating them” and get called an oppressor, abuser, the enemy, evil, to have our races or identity erased for actually standing up for people.
And they’ll think, “Those were the people we all needed most. And I spat in their face.”
Once the Soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency or partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment –John O'Donahue
