conceiving-a-girl

Date the girl who is affected by the moon. Date the girl who is antithesis of the moon. You rarely see her at night, lest the night sky is dark and obscured. Date the girl who is only seen in the daytime. The girl who can never moongaze with you on a chill autumn evening. “I miss the Sun” she always says, while in its very presence. Date the girl who is conceivably the moon. The girl who shines with an earthly glow, and smiles at you with a haunting smile. She is always looking up with sorrow, and saying she must go. Date the girl who is the moon.

You don’t see a lot of bisexual characters in movies and TV shows, you don’t hear about bisexuality a lot or when you do hear about it, it can obviously oftentimes be sort of negatively conceived as like a girl who’s foolin’ around and is a little promiscuous and hooks up with girls, or it’s like through the male gaze and it’s like, oh yeah it’s really hot when girls hook up with other girls once in a while, just for fun.

The Wild Crown

FFnet | AO3

Queen Astrid has given birth to a child—the last child she will be able to conceive, and it’s a girl. Will the princess grow up to become a queen? Or will King Hiccup of the Wilderwest take a mistress to beget a male heir?

And can this arranged marriage between Queen Astrid and King Hiccup, formed for the future and survival of the Wilderwest, possibly result in love? [Arranged Marriage AU | Fantasy AU]

My new fic (I swore I wouldn’t write anymore until I finished/rewrote some old ones lol I think I have a problem).

Read the prelude on AO3 | Read the prelude on FFnet

bc this quote just popped up on my dashboard and im laughing at it all over again:

A few days past, he had taken Ned aside to show him an exquisite rose gold locket. Inside was a miniature painted in the vivid Myrish style, of a lovely young girl with doe’s eyes and a cascade of soft brown hair. Renly had seemed anxious to know if the girl reminded him of anyone, and when Ned had no answer but a shrug, he had seemed disappointed. The maid was Loras Tyrell’s sister Margaery, he’d confessed, but there were those who said she looked like Lyanna. “No,” Ned had told him, bemused. Could it be that Lord Renly, who looked so like a young Robert, had conceived a passion for a girl he fancied to be a young Lyanna? That struck him as more than passing queer. -Ned, AGOT

Later we learn that Renly and the Tyrells had been plotting to have Cersei put aside and Margaery married to Robert, so the reason why Renly ever showed Ned her portrait becomes clear because Robert was in love with Lyanna, so he might love Margaery if she looked like her.

But this: “there were those who said she looked like Lyanna”. who??? who are those??? like it’s such a blatant lie and it’s so hilarious to imagine renly being like “so, ned….. she remind you of anyone?”, for ned to be like “¯\_(ツ)_/¯”, and renly becomes *visibly disappointed* and has to scramble to put his intended point across like “OH WELL…. there are people who say she looks like your sister! funny that you don’t know what your sister looked like when these OTHER PEOPLE totally did!” 

and ned, still forgetting to give a shit, just goes “no”

anonymous asked:

Someone please make a list of the stuff that Penders considered "progressive" in the comics. There's so much wrong with it.

Oh boy, that would be a long list. Off the top of my head though…

-Julie-Su entirely. Conceived her as an Action Girl and desired her to be seen as a ‘girl power’ type of character. Her entire existence ultimately revolves around her love interest, including her reason for leaving her old life behind, and all of her development is about him. To say nothing of the fact that her destiny is to be a doddering housewife straight out of the 1950s despite having been a career soldier and part of a techno militia/cult.

-His treatment of Sally in general- a strong female character in all meaningful uses of the term in the show, Penders slowly chipped away at this, diminishing her character and focusing upon all the wrong aspects of her as a character, turning her into a domineering harpy who was under the thumb of her controlling father. He tried to kill her off under a myriad of excuses, from her mini-series not selling well (despite never mentioning a need to kill off any of HIS character who appeared in that book), to not grasping how she could be a leader along with Sonic (field leadership just doesn’t exist), to even claiming she ‘cramped Sonic’s style’ and needed to go, committing a very blatant act of ‘fridging’ by trying to kill her off solely as a means of motivating Sonic despite the fact she was a lead character. Adding insult to injury was his creation of Elias, a gender inverted clone of his sister (right down to his name being a phonetic reversal) whom rumor has it was being groomed to take over as leader of the Freedom Fighters, and whose introduction was simply another means for her father to spite her. 

-Making Rotor gay under arbitray and offensive reasoning, and then doing such a poor job of hinting towards it that nobody figured it out until he said something years and years after the fact, while treating this shoddy and lackluster act of inclusion as if it were some daring act of progressive subversion. 

-Trying to display a ‘nontraditional’ marriage for Knuckles and Julie-Su that none the less operates as a completely, stereotypically traditional marriage that renders the decision arbitrary and diminishing towards Julie-Su.

-Refusing to really examine or acknowledge some of the more fucked up things that Locke did and even encouraging these actions. 

-Claiming to be heavily pro-democracy while making his Perfect Pet Civilization ultimately controlled behind the scenes by a single family, not unlike a monarchy, all the while claiming he WANTED to undo the monarchy show in the Kingdom of Acorn yet took absolutely no steps to even suggest that abolishing it or reforming it was a good idea. 

-In fact, a lot of the stuff about the Echidna becomes cringey given that he explicitly views them as a stand-in for the USA, and then concocting a scenario where grimey criminals are mostly non-Echidna, while the Echidna-only terrorist group he explicitly compares to Nazis are suddenly allowed to be regarded as more of a ‘shade of grey’ and having ‘complexity’ behind their actions. 

-In another one for feminism, the fact that the entire line of Guardians has only a single girl, one who goes on to be outlived by her father, son and most of her male descendants while dying under vague circumstances. This would be less notable if it was established that the Brotherhood was sexist and simply passed over potential female Guardians in favor of male ones, but nothing of the sort is at at any point hinted at or established, so we are forced to accept that throughout a family line going back two centuries there was only ever one girl. What makes it all so glaring is that Penders screams about being a feminist and a progressive, and yet couldn’t even commit to a simple no-brainer scenario like making the Guardian lineage comprised of men AND women in favor of a sausage-fest council of cryptic grandpas. 

-Trying to demonstrate the strength of women by having Lupe sacrifice herself for her family, only to say it was to show that EVEN a female could do so, and in saying such completely twisting the intended message and sabotaging of it of meaning. 

On and on and on it goes, and where it stops, nobody knows…

I ended up going less specific with this one so that it can be relatable, but your OC sounds cool! :)


GIF Request: Finding the Daughter They Never Knew Existed with Hellsing

She would be SO confused because, being a woman, she would have HAD to have given birth to the girl, but has no memory of the event. She is suspicious at first and investigates in length whether or not her story was true,especially since Miss Hellsing is positive she is a virgin.

Seras

Again, would be very confused seeing as she is the woman and does not remember ever having a child and the fact that Alucard was able to turn her confuses her. She wants to be supportive as much as possible, especially if the girl is young, but can’t help but feel something is off.

He even tries to stay in friendly contact with her mother, wanting to be sure that his daughter does not grow up without parents as he did.

Walter would be surprised; though he is not a virgin, he never thought he had ever “sewn his seed” into any of his liaisons as a young man and tends to stay pretty celibate as an older man. He gets to know the child, and tries, but is never incredibly fatherly and tends to be almost awkward from his lack of knowledge, but is nonetheless protective.

Mommy’s First Night Out

A/N: Requested by anonymous: Can you write a story where Reid and his wife/fiancé/girlfriend are new parents and she needs a day out with the girls which leaves Reid alone for the first time taking care of their infant daughter? All of your stories are so amazing btw!

Woohoo! I had to start over four times, but I finally finished it. To the anon who requested this, I really hope you enjoy it and it is what you expected – it was such an adorable prompt!!! :-)

—————————-

You sat with your three month old baby, Elise, in the middle of your living room. Stuffed animals, fluffy blankets, and binkies covered your floor as you kneeled above her, playing peek-a-boo.

“Where’s mommy…” you hid behind a blanket, waiting a few moments before you sprung out. “There she is!” you exclaimed as you uncovered your face from the blanket, making Elise squeal with delight. You loved nothing more than her sweet laugh.

Your husband, Spencer, walked in with a smile on his face upon hearing Elise’s laughter. He kneeled down beside you and gave Elise a kiss on the forehead, then turned towards you.

“Hey, so… Penelope just called and was wondering if you were going out with the girls tonight?” Spencer asked quietly.

You sighed. The girls had been badgering you to go out with them for weeks now, but you just hadn’t wanted to leave Elise yet. You were a new mom, and you hadn’t left her yet – plus, you just loved to be around her and squeeze her cute little cheeks.

You knew you wouldn’t be able to get out of a girls night out this time, so you decided to give in. “I know… do you think you’ll be okay with just the two of you? This will be the first time you would be left alone with her, honey…” you trailed off.

It wasn’t that you didn’t trust Spencer – in fact, with him being an FBI agent (and an incredible father), she was probably in the best hands with him. You just weren’t ready to leave your baby yet.

Spencer grabbed your hand. “Of course we’ll be okay, sweetie. The girls have wanted you to go out with them for weeks now, plus you deserve it. You haven’t left Elise’s side from the moment she was conceived… Go out with the girls. Go have fun” he gave you an encouraging smile.

You nodded at his comforting words – Spencer always knew exactly what to say. “I’m going to go get washed up and changed… do you mind putting her down for a nap?” You smiled and gave both of them a kiss on the cheek and headed into your bedroom after getting a confirming nod from Spencer.

You took a shower, applied your make up, and did your hair, but you were having a hard time finding something to wear. You fell back on your bed and made a loud groan – Spencer heard your frustrated groan and walked into the bedroom.

“What’s wrong, sweetheart?” he asked as he sat down on the bed next to you and rubbed your leg.

You stood up and started pacing around. “Nothing fits right! I could usually wear something like this” you gestured to your favorite fitted dress. “And not have a problem, but now my body is just… not the same” you said as you continued to pace around your room, getting upset.

Spencer met you in the middle of the floor, stopping you by placing both of his hands on your arms. “Of course your body has changed – you grew a person for nine months honey, but it doesn’t mean that you’re any less beautiful or perfect as you’ve always been. Here–” he grabbed one of your favorite sweater dresses that you had thrown off to the side. “Put this on; I’m sure it will look lovely” he gave you a light kiss on the lips.

That man sure had a way with his words.

You put on the dress he suggested and twirled around dramatically as he whooped and hollered with affection. You both giggled as he pulled you into a hug and a long, sweet kiss. You finished getting ready and Spencer picked up Elise when she woke up from her nap.

You put on some finishing touches, then grabbed your purse to get ready to leave.

“Goodbye, my love” you rubbed noses with Elise then gave her a kiss on the cheek, then gave Spencer a kiss too.

“Send me updates?” you said as you were halfway out the door.

“Of course Y/N. We’ll be okay – go have fun” he said with a smile as you walked outside and got into your car.

——————————-

You didn’t realize how much you needed a girl’s night until you got to dinner. You had a great night full of wine, good food, and laughter with Penelope, J.J., and Emily. You even took a few shots – it was so refreshing to be with your girls again.

It was getting late, so you took a cab home. In the cab, you scrolled through the photos Spencer took while you were away. Elise giggling while Spencer gave her a bath. Elise eating (and wearing) a bowl of spaghetti. Elise propped up on the couch watching her favorite movie. The pictures made you smile, and also made you eager to get home.

You opened the door to a dark house, but saw a dim light coming from inside your bedroom. You threw your purse down and took your coat off as you walked into your bedroom to see a picturesque moment.

Spencer and Elise had fallen asleep on your bed, Spencer’s arm wrapped around Elise – she looked so small on your king size bed.

You pulled out your phone to take a picture of this serene sight, then slipped into some pajamas and wiped off your makeup. When you slid into bed, Spencer woke up.

“How was your night?” he said with a sleepy smile as you kissed his forehead.

You laid down facing him with Elise in the middle of the two of you. “It was very fun, and… much needed” you smiled as you stroked your baby’s soft, thin hair. “I loved all of the pictures” you said with a chuckle.

“I’m glad you had fun; we also had a lot of fun. Elise is such a happy baby” he said as he looked down at Elise.

Your heart overflowed with love as you watched Spencer doze off again and heard a light snore escape Elise’s lips; you loved your sweet little family.

You don’t see a lot of bisexual characters in movies and TV shows, you don’t hear about bisexuality a lot or when you do hear about it, it can obviously oftentimes be sort of negatively conceived as like a girl who’s foolin’ around and is a little promiscuous and hooks up with girls, or it’s like through the male gaze and it’s like, oh yeah it’s really hot when girls hook up with other girls once in a while, just for fun.
 

like im honestly still taken aback at how little like - shame? apology? there ever was for that whole “john green is a creep” thing

and i KNOW it was months ago but like. you have a teenage girl, talking about how she, as a teenage girl feels creeped out by the way this adult man interacts with / talks about / conceives of / obsesses over teenage girls, 

and you, as an adult freaking man, feel like it’s totally acceptable to (1) accuse her of slander (2) allow a bunch of famous adults to jump on this thing to defend ur poor self and (3) paint yourself as this poor victim of online bullying? and then NEVER apologize or reevaluate yourself

to the point where its months later and hank is still talking about the Mean People In This Wretched Earth who are just mean for no good reason, the nerve of some people to dislike this wealthy dude who wedges himself into everything

steamboatclusie  asked:

I've been waiting for the next book in ASOIAF to come out and have been going over "what ifs" out of boredom. In one of Ned's chapters, Renly mentions something about Margery looking like Lyanna and it had something to do with Renly attempting to sway Robert somehow? And I think he brings it up again when he's talking to Stannis in the second book. I was hoping you could shed some light on Renly's plot. I was confused as to his endgame with that plan. Opinions?

I could have sworn I’ve answered this already, but it’s not in my posts at all. (edit: oh right, it was on someone else’s blog.) Anyway, the text you’re referring to:

Ned was not sure what to make of Renly, with all his friendly ways and easy smiles. A few days past, he had taken Ned aside to show him an exquisite rose gold locket. Inside was a miniature painted in the vivid Myrish style, of a lovely young girl with doe’s eyes and a cascade of soft brown hair. Renly had seemed anxious to know if the girl reminded him of anyone, and when Ned had no answer but a shrug, he had seemed disappointed. The maid was Loras Tyrell’s sister Margaery, he’d confessed, but there were those who said she looked like Lyanna. “No,” Ned had told him, bemused. Could it be that Lord Renly, who looked so like a young Robert, had conceived a passion for a girl he fancied to be a young Lyanna? That struck him as more than passing queer.

—AGOT, Eddard VI

“Have you seen Mace Tyrell’s boy? The Knight of Flowers, they call him. Now there’s a son any man would be proud to own to. Last tourney, he dumped the Kingslayer on his golden rump, you ought to have seen the look on Cersei’s face. I laughed till my sides hurt. Renly says he has this sister, a maid of fourteen, lovely as a dawn…”

—Robert Baratheon, AGOT, Eddard VII

Sighing, Renly half turned in the saddle. “What am I to do with this brother of mine, Brienne? He refuses my peach, he refuses my castle, he even shunned my wedding…”
“We both know your wedding was a mummer’s farce. A year ago you were scheming to make the girl one of Robert’s whores.”
“A year ago I was scheming to make the girl Robert’s queen,” Renly said, “but what does it matter? The boar got Robert and I got Margaery.”

—ACOK, Catelyn III

It’s pretty straightforward. Renly didn’t care for the stranglehold the Lannisters had on his brother and the kingdom, what with Tywin being owed millions of gold, Cersei as queen, and Lannister appointees everywhere (including two of Robert’s squires). Renly was also aware of how Robert and Cersei didn’t get along, and it’s also very likely that he suspected the truth about the parentage of Cersei’s children. At the very least he probably guessed their father was not Robert.

So when Renly met his lover Loras’s younger sister, and saw how pretty she was… and he knew that the Tyrells were one of the few families rich and powerful enough to stand up to the Lannisters… well, he planned to bring Margaery to King’s Landing so that she would become Robert’s mistress. With all probability he could even convince Robert to set aside Cersei and take Margaery as queen instead. (Basically an Anne Boleyn plot.) So Renly had this portrait of Margaery painted, and told Robert about her beauty, and even said that she might look like Lyanna, to further appeal to Robert. (Note “a maid of fourteen” is what Lyanna was when Robert last saw her.)

But before the plan could really get moving and Margaery could come to King’s Landing, Cersei’s own plan went into action, and Robert was killed by the boar. So after fruitlessly trying to convince Ned to side with him, Renly got the hell out of King’s Landing before the Lannister coup, went to Highgarden where he married Margaery, and then declared himself king, with all the wealth and armies of the Reach supporting him.

I hope that helps!

Date a girl who is an all-destroying force of nature that even gods will eventually kneel before. Date a girl who is time personified, death incarnate, and the end of all things conceivable. Date a girl who will spare only you from destruction mandated by reality itself. Date a girl who, not through action but inaction, has gifted you with an undying, indestructable, and ageless body, that will take you beyond the end of all things to see the birth of something new. Date a girl who will tenderly hold your hand and kiss your lips through incarnation after incarnation of reality until you both forget you were mortal once.

anonymous asked:

Hi Freda, do you think there's any merit in tricks to conceive a boy/girl? I've heard of people waiting until ovulation to have a boy/prior to ovulation for a girl. What do you think? Would you prefer your next baby to be a boy or a girl?

It’s called the Shettles Method I believe? The theory is that if you want to conceive a boy you should sleep with your partner as close as possible to the day of ovulation because male sperm are fast but tire quickly. If you want to have a girl then you should have sex a few days before ovulation because while female sperm are slower, they’re much sturdier than male sperm and survive longer in adverse conditions!

Just anecdotally the theory holds up in my case 👍 we weren’t trying to have a boy over a girl but I had a strong feeling I was pregnant with a boy because I was tracking my cycle and knew when Leo was conceived. For next time I won’t try and manipulate it one way or the other because I don’t care if we have a boy or a girl. I think if you’re fixated on the performative aspects of gender and really truly believe certain things are restricted to only girls or only boys then you’re going to feel strongly about having children of a particular sex. But we don’t look at it that way.

padmea  asked:

im sorry but... who is visenya and why should rhaegar cry out her name??

I don’t know how much you know, so I’ll just give you the complete rundown. Visenya was the older sister and wife of Aegon the Conqueror, who it was said he married out of duty. Rhaenys was his younger sister-wife, who it was said he married for love.  So, Visenya –> Aegon –> Rhaenys

Fast-forward a couple hundred years and you have Rhaegar, obsessed with prophecies about saving the world. “The dragon must have three heads.” Elia gave Rhaegar two children: Rhaenys –> Aegon

So Rhaegar says when his baby son is born (after the Tourney at Harrenhal), “There must be one more.” With the return of winter (and imo what Rhaegar believes is the onset of the Long Night), Rhaegar leaves Elia on Dragonstone, and some time later, he and Lyanna are babymaking in the Tower of Joy to get that “one more”. 

(In my opinion, Rhaegar and Lyanna were in Dorne not because of anything about Elia, but because that was where the Others stopped their advance last time. Rhaegar thinks everything north of Dorne will soon be behind enemy lines as the Others advance, and he needs time for this child to be born and grow up, idk, like the child of Sarah Connor or something. (Rhaegar’s a little crazy; it runs in the family.))

So, the theory goes that Rhaegar believes he and Lyanna have conceived a baby girl to complete the trio and fulfill the prophecy. (Except it’s the opposite birth order this time, Rhaenys –> Aegon –> Visenya, and my take on that is because Rhaegar’s goal is not to conquer, but to defend.) 

Rhaegar leaves Lyanna at the ToJ after she’s pregnant, but well before the baby’s born. Maybe he says to Lyanna, “Let’s call her Visenya.” Maybe he doesn’t. But on the trident, with his dying breath, Rhaegar screams, “Visenya!” because this infant child is his last hope to save the world, that was why he started a war, that was why thousands had to die. Of course, the baby is born a boy instead, and Ned names him after Jon Arryn. 

tbh, I think it’s really bad if Rhaegar really did cry out “Lyanna,” because it continues to pit Elia and Lyanna against each other (but idk why I’m surprised by GRRM’s choices at this point). I think Rhaegar’s love and concern for humanity should be given more narrative importance than his love for any one woman (either woman, Elia or Lyanna), and screaming “VIsenya” would have symbolized that. But nah, we get a tired love story instead, according to the app. 

According to the app, Tyrion can’t be a Secret Targaryen, but everyone says I can’t use that as definitive proof, so idk why we’re all treating “Rhaegar cried out Lyanna’s name” as definitive. I would still like to hope GRRM will write that Rhaegar screamed Visenya with his last breath.

bell-flower  asked:

In your post about Cersei and Renly, you said you thought Renly was trying to set Robert up with Margaery. You're the only person I've ever heard espouse that idea. I always assumed he was clearly looking at Margaery for himself, and had always planned to set himself up as a mirror of Robert's younger, better days. What makes you think he was looking at her for Robert?

[post about Cersei and Renly]

I am definitely not the first person to think this (click the link). From AGOT:

Ned was not sure what to make of Renly, with all his friendly ways and easy smiles. A few days past, he had taken Ned aside to show him an exquisite rose gold locket. Inside was a miniature painted in the vivid Myrish style, of a lovely young girl with doe’s eyes and a cascade of soft brown hair. Renly had seemed anxious to know if the girl reminded him of anyone, and when Ned had no answer but a shrug, he had seemed disappointed. The maid was Loras Tyrell’s sister Margaery, he’d confessed, but there were those who said she looked like Lyanna. “No,” Ned had told him, bemused. Could it be that Lord Renly, who looked so like a young Robert, had conceived a passion for a girl he fancied to be a young Lyanna? That struck him as more than passing queer.

What makes me think Renly was looking at her for Robert?

  • No one knows Robert is going to die anytime soon. At this point, everyone thinks he is going to be king for many years.
  • Stannis, Littlefinger, etc know that Cersei’s children are bastards and that Cersei has technically committed treason. 
  • Queens who commit treason usually don’t remain queen for long. 
  • I can’t remember if Renly specifically knew about Cersei’s treason before Robert dies, but even if he was unaware, he was displeased by the Lannister influence at court. He wanted Cersei removed.
  • Note how Renly wants to know if Marg resembles Lyanna. Renly knows that Robert is still pining for Lyanna over a decade later. If Renly could wave a Lyanna v2.0 in front of him, Robert would presumably set Cersei aside, or at least that’s Renly’s plan. Renly is a shrewd politician.
  • Renly is gay; he is deeply in love with Loras Tyrell. He has no interest in setting himself up with Margaery.
  • Margaery could look like Shiera Seastar or Visenya Targaryen and Renly still would not care because he’s not attracted to women. 
  • Seriously, there is literally no other reason for Renly to hope that Marg looks like Lyanna than to try to attract Robert’s interest.

Part of this is the POV problem. Ned assumes that Renly wants to set himself up as the image of young Robert, but it takes Ned 75% of AGOT to figure out that Joffrey “Blonde of Hair” Baratheon is really a Lannister bastard. Ned isn’t exactly the sharpest person around. 

I think there is something to be said about Renly being a younger version of Robert in his better days:

Renly was a lot like Robert. Handsome, friendly, charismatic, attractive to women, a fine warrior, generous… the major difference (besides his perceptiveness, as said above) is because of Renly’s preference for men (and devotion to one man), he wasn’t prone to the same gross excesses and corruption the way Robert was. […]

If Renly had lived and won the throne, but Loras had died along the way, I would not have been surprised to see him go the same way as Robert… dissolute, disaffected, hedonistic, wildly generous to the point of putting the crown hugely in debt (to the Tyrells this time instead of the Lannisters)… and in the end, no better than his brother.

So, there are potential Renly-Robert parallels to be made, but Renly/Lyanna v2.0 is not one of them. 

nobodysuspectsthebutterfly replied to your post:

Renly’s plans for Robert and Marg are right in the text (ACOK):

“We both know your wedding was a mummer’s farce. A year ago you were scheming to make the girl one of Robert’s whores.”
“A year ago I was scheming to make the girl Robert’s queen,” Renly said

There you go.
