reasons why my grandpa is the best:

  • he made my wife and i (i’m a woman) a giant banner for our one year anniversary 
  • when i was pregnant, the baby was kicking and when he touched my belly, the baby stopped and he called him a little shit
  • he once called and left a voicemail asking how to spell styrofoam
  • he flipped a table bc he saw someone hit a dog
  • he beat skrim in 4 days
  • he served in the korean war and when he came home, he learned korean so if he ever ran into a korean vet, he could “give them the same respect he’d give an american vet”
  • my son has two moms and there was a “special guy in your life” day at his school for father’s day so my grandpa went and showed up in dress pants and a pressed shirt bc he “didn’t want to embarrass him”. also, there was a little boy who didn’t have anyone there and grandpa asked if he could be his “special guy” and the little boy beamed
  • he knows all of the secrets to the zelda games
  • he’s had 4 open heart surgeries and can still kick your ass

ON COMPULSORY HETEROSEXUALITY AND HOW IT MAKES MY INSIDES BLEED // Darshana Suresh

grandmother said that one day i would grow up
and marry a nice boy, and i said okay.
i used to daydream about this nice boy,
about a nice family, about nice kids 
and a nice house. i never asked myself
whether that was what i wanted, because
that never mattered. it was what i should want.

the first time i noticed a girl, i sat down
and questioned it for years. i thought
‘this can’t be right,’ i thought ‘this is
not what i should be,’ i thought
‘this is not possible.’

i thought of boys touching me and i
felt sick. grandmother said that one day
she would find me a nice boy to marry
and i smiled and then went and threw
up in the bathroom when no one was looking.

i thought ‘maybe this will go away,’
and when it didn’t i thought ‘maybe everyone
feels this way at first.’ 

this is the story of how i put my love for
girls under the microscope. did everything
i could to convince myself it wasn’t real.
this is the story of how i swallowed my
lack of love for boys like a pill,
as though if i never questioned it i could
will it to become a reality.

years later and again, grandmother
says she’ll find me a nice boy. i can’t
say anything to her face but in my mind
i amend the sentence. think ‘one day
there’ll be a girl, and one day, i’ll find
her myself.’ think ‘there is a freedom
in knowing i do not have to love boys,
and i have found it at last.’

i think ‘this is enough,’ and then, at last,
‘i am enough.’

okay so everybody always talks about how amazing sam vimes is, and i love sam vimes to the bottom of my heart, but i do not see enough sybil appreciation on my dashboard.

sybil is a zarking goddess okay, and i will not hear a word against her

  • she calls the PATRICIAN of Ankh-Morpork ‘havelock’.
  • she actually just calls pretty much everybody by their first names
  • people who are not scared of vimes will listen to sybil any day
  • she’s perfectly level headed, until vimes calls her a duchess, when she will become the most overbearing, duchessy duchess the disc has ever known
  • her haggling for fat with the low king.
  • her being brought up to act small, so as to make everybody feel bigger. then using that to her advantage because i’m pretty sure she knows how amazing she is.
  • being so compassionate she can see the good in anybody without even trying, even nobby nobbs
  • being the first person in forever to actually see the potential in perpetually drunk, undernourished, broken sam vimes and taking away his alcohol and giving him food and being there so he can actually grow to be the sam vimes that we love.
  • being sybil ramkin, the dragon obsessed, charitable spinster who is pretty much the only person left in ankh-morpork who actually respects the night watch in guards guards, and seeing exploding swamp dragons as lovable pets.
  • singing opera so well she becomes an honorary dwarf
tsukishima kei
  • tsukki once lost his glasses for an entire three days
  • when asked where they went he said he was “being a teenager” and “going through a phase” and told his parents not to bother him
  • everyone wondered why he was so angry those three days
  • he was actually just squinting really hard because he literally could not see
  • akiteru does not let him live this down, ever

[x]

yeah that happened once. luckily noone saw since i’m usually stuck in the back

I don’t know how she managed to hide in my hair undetected but i’ve been more careful since. she did behave herself though, but got upset because she didn’t understand why I didn’t let her come back the next day

she even used the same hair-hiding tactic

the lapeeps do some weird stuff but once they do … at least they’re predictable

“When Pretty Emily woke one day

She saw the world a different way

Her eyes now looked with a stranger’s guile

Her dainty mouth smiled a stranger’s smile

Her hands now worked the stranger’s wrath

Her feet now walked a stranger’s path

Emily fed, another grew stronger

The stranger’s cravings drove her onward,

And no one who looked on Emily’s face

Ever guessed who ruled in Emily’s place.”

When I read this in game I was just like this: :OOO

look guys if Derek Nurse is anything like me he has a favourite art gallery back home that he goes to on bad days

he is there so often that he doesn’t really need to look closely at any of the exhibits because he has seen them all

but he just sits down for a bit in every room with a bench and takes in the atmosphere

there’s this one exhibit that’s more closed off than the rest. the walls are painted a deep blue and the light is so warm and soft. he spends a lot of time there, just drifting from piece to piece

when he goes to Samwell he feels lost because he doesn’t have this escape anymore

Lardo kidnaps him one day and takes him a couple of towns over. the gallery is small and quiet. he loves it. she never says anything but her smile is gentle.
