do you know how hard it was to make this

a garden of succulents by @pawspaintsnthings

Haylee drew Kent Parson for me for Fandom Loves Puerto Rico. I’m so happy and so emotional every time I look at this art.

The metaphor I ended up putting onto Kent is–growing up lonely and emotionally maltreated can kind of feel like being a plant in the desert. Parts of you wither up and die from lack of love and even if more rain comes, you’re so used to making do with very little that you honestly don’t know how to take more in. You’ve turned into a desert shrub. Your childhood set your level of emotional intake as an adult, and it’s hard to let people in or relate normally to them. And yet, and yet, there are small oases, people who are like sweet cool water. The hard part is not getting caught up on them, thinking that if you lose one, you’ll be thirsty for the rest of your life.

So a garden of succulents means, for me, accepting that I might never “recover” from my childhood, in the sense that I will probably never be a normal, neurotypical, traditionally social person. But I can find people I feel akin to, and work to surround myself with people who are social in a way that works for me. I can find other cactuses and slowly work our way together past each other’s defenses. Nothing can totally undo the damage, but I can find ways to be happy as the person I am now.

I hope my boy gets that too.

He has to stifle a laugh. And fails. Miserably.

So there’s -

Oh, man.

There’s a guy here. Shane has no clue if he works here or not, but, like, oh my god.

He’s scared. Of the animatronics.

“Now’s not a good time,” the guy snaps, but it’s hard to take him seriously when he flinches every time the motion-sensitive robots start to move.

“Just leave the corner,” Shane suggests, still chuckling at the sight.

“I don’t know how!” the man protests, yelping as one of the robots brushes against his shoulder. He immediately makes a beeline for Shane, staying at his side.

“What do you mean, you don’t know how?” Shane parrots incredulously.

The animatronic corner is designed to look like a mini haunted house. You walk in through the makeshift door and all of a sudden you’re in a little building. But, not really, because it’s literally just cardboard. The walls are cardboard. The animatronics aren’t real. It’s fake, it’s all fake.

“The door’s over there,” Shane continues, pointing towards the faint outline of a rectangle. Granted, it’s rather hard to see in the dark, so Shane supposes he can’t blame the other man.

“I don’t even know how I got in here,” the man mutters, shaking his head, his arm just brushing Shane’s. “I’m uh, I’m Ryan, by the way.” He holds his hand out for Shane to shake.

“I’m Shane. Nice to meet you,” Shane replies, shaking his hand amiably.

Happy (belated) birthday, @boys-and-ghouls!

I can’t believe even Iris fans are hating on her for not supporting Barry.

1. The team didn’t believe him either.

2. Iris noticed that Barry was acting off, which he was. Barry’s behavior was irrational and she was trying to calm him down. She knew Barry wasn’t acting right. I got annoyed y the constant wedding mentioning, but if your wedding was week away and your fiance was acting off, you would think he was cold feet too.

3. Yes, Iris will always support Barry on some things, but not when he’s doing stuff like breaking and entering. She and the TEAM wanted to make sure they got the right guy hence the backgrounds check. Barry was going on a gut feeling while they wanted some hard evidence. 

4. I see there some keep mentioning how Iris should have been the one to support him the whole time. That’s….unrealistic. Ya’ll do know that husband and wives don’t always support each other on everything right? (hence, my first sentence in #3) Also, teams don’t support each other all the time either?

5. Barry told Iris later on he didn’t want to lose everything that made him happy. She understood that, but she also explained that they will always have a lot more to lose and that Barry can’t lose himself in trying to take down the bad guy (just like he almost did in this episode).

Again, it’s just unrealistic that husband and wives will support each other on everything. They won’t.

I expected this from Iris haters, but not from her own fans.

anonymous asked:

Can you do "Don't touch me. We're fighting" with your Vegas au?

“Daveed Diggs, I swear to God-”

“Look, Y/N, I’m sorry, okay?” Daveed ran after you in the hall leading to your dressing room in the Richard Rogers’.

“No, you’re not sorry.” You stopped to turn around and face him, pointing a finger at him. “The first time this whole jealousy thing happened was at the Warriors game with Steph Curry - and, you know, I’m not gonna lie, it was hot as fuck - but god damn it, Daveed, you can’t get jealous every single time I talk to a guy I used to have or still have a celebrity crush on!”

“Do you know how hard it is to just stand by and watch you ogle at another dude as he talks to you. Or to watch him make heart eyes at you? How am I just supposed to let it slide, Y/N?” Daveed asked, throwing his arms out to the side.

“You just do, D.” You sighed, exasperated. “I’m your girlfriend. I’m in love with you. Not Stephen Curry. Not OBJ. Not Zac Efron. You are the one I’m in love with, Daveed Diggs. I just…why can’t you trust me?”

Daveed’s composure softened dramatically. “I do trust you, Y/N. More than anyone else. You know that.” He said softly.

“Then stop the jealousy every time another celebrity visits Hamilton. I swear, you’ve given the cold shoulder to at least one guy I’ve talked to after each show in the past couple weeks.” You said, crossing your arms over your chest. “It needs to stop, Diggs. Today, okay? You know I only want you, so why is this a problem, anyway?”

Daveed sighed and took a step towards you, his arms dropping to gently grab your wrists which were still crossed over your chest.

“Don’t touch me. Not until you say sorry.” You said, looking up at him. “We’re fighting.”

He disobeyed you as he still held your wrists in his hands and pressed a kiss to each one. “But I did say sorry,” he mumbled against your skin, his eyes flitting up to hold your gaze.

“Say it again, then.” You said stubbornly.

Daveed sighed once more, letting your wrists drop to your sides only to let his hands grab onto your waist. He rested his forehead on yours as he murmured his apology once more. “I’m sorry, baby. It won’t happen again. I’ll be cool from now on, I promise.”

You looked up at your boyfriend, knowing his apology was sincere. Gently, you brought up your hand to caress his cheek as you gave him a soft chaste kiss. “Good.” You whispered against him.

“I love you.” Daveed said genuinely, kissing you once more.

“I love you.” You replied with a hint of a smile on your lips.

It goes especially for submissions!

fullmetalswife  asked:

Aaaaaaa it's so hard just to pick a few questions!! You guys are just too cute! But if all of them are too much... 1-4, then? :Dc

Aaaaaa, thank you~!! You’re very nice!
..You know what? I like you. You’re nice. I’m gonna do all of them, just for you. (Minus the ones I’ve already done.)

1. How did you two meet?

- I’ve written a whole thing on how they’ve met in canon! In my modern AU, they met on a train. Hinata tried to make small talk but Mana fell asleep the moment he sat down. So he literally waited for hours for her to wake up just so he could talk to her.

2. Was it love at first sight, or did it take awhile for you to warm up to each other?

- I think Mana died and went to heaven when she first saw Hinata. It was practically instantaneous. It took a while for Hinata to even realize she was crushing on him, because he’s a lovable idiot, and for him to like her back.

3. What do the people around you think of your relationship?

- Everyone @ Mana: TELL HINATA YOU LIKE HIM YOU DUMMY
Everyone @ Hinata: MANA LIKES YOU YOU DUMMY
It was like watching a soap opera. Will they? Won’t they? And then when they finally got together everybody in the army had a collective “it’s about damn time” moment.

4. Do you have pet names for each other?

- Mana has at least a million nicknames for him, but he only has a few for her.

5. Have you given your ship a name?

- Yeah, it’s Himana!

6. Who is the more dominant one in the relationship?

- Dominant how? Like sexually? Uhhh… I guess it depends on the situation?

8. What do you two find to be the most attractive about one another?

- Mana @ Hinata: Have you SEEN him? He’s adorable!
Hinata @ Mana: Have you SEEN her? She’s adorable!

9. What do you two do to get each other “in the mood”?

- In the mood for what? To train? Hinata’s always in that mood.

10. What was your worst fight?

- I think it was when Mana told him that she has to leave at the end of the war. But that wasn’t much of a fight, it was just…depressing.

11. Best gifts you two have exchanged?

- Ehhh…honestly neither of them are the best with gifts. As in, they don’t go very extravagant. So the best gifts they’ve gotten each other are flowers and cool swords.

12. Do you want/have kids?

- Yeah! They have three sons. Mana is the only girl in the house. Even their cat is a boy.

13. Have you ever broken up?

- I mean…I saved over my first Fates file so I could marry Takumi, but then I really missed Hinata so I saved over the Takumi file to remarry Hinata. I dunno if that counts though.

14. Scariest moment together?

- Conquest. Just…in general. Not cool.

15. Happiest moment together?

- I think I’ve talked about this before, but in the modern AU Mana confessed to him while he was asleep, and it was probably the best moment of her life. I love that trope so much.

16. Are you or will you ever get married?

- Been married almost 2 years fam~

17. Ideal way to spend time with one another?

- Since getting married, Hinata tries to train with Mana as much as possible.

18. Who has the higher sex drive?

- I dunno. Mana I guess?

19. What areas do the two of you like to be kissed on?

- Hinata loves neck kisses. 👍

20. What are the biggest relationship flaws the two of you have?

- Sometimes they hurt themselves trying to protect each other. Plus Mana can be super secretive about her emotions and her reasons for doing certain things.

23. Who is the most affectionate?

- They’re both really really affectionate.

24. If the two of you are apart for a long time, who takes it the hardest?

- Definitely Mana. She feels lost when he’s not around for five minutes.

25. Who said “I love you” first?

- Mana did! Finally, am I right?

26. What was your first kiss like?

- It was probably the most romantic thing Hinata has ever done.

27. Who asks to be sent dirty selfies?

- Nah, they don’t ask for it. Besides, it’s much better when it’s a surprise~

28. Who’s more likely to send unsolicited dirty selfies?

- Now that’s what I’m talking about. And probably Mana.

29. What do the two of you wear for couples Halloween costumes?

- Okay but would they not be the perfect knight/princess pair? Or knight/dragon~

31. Who is better at dirty talk? What sorts of things do they say?

- Let’s all just assume Hinata is awful at anything romantic or sexy. Maybe not awful, but…uncomfortable. Mana has to pick up the slack often with a lot of giggles and “you’re so cute”s

32. Is jealousy a problem at all?

- You’d think it would be with Hinata’s track record, but it’s really not. Mana knows she can trust him.

33. What’s your favorite place to have sex?

- The bedroom, like normal people.

34. Who confessed first?

- Reluctantly, Mana.

35. Who is more likely to surprise the other by joining them in the shower?

- I wanna say Hinata, but…eh, yeah, Hinata.

36. Who apologizes the most?

- They both apologize a lot, for different things.

37. Has anyone ever walked in on you two? What happened?

- No, it’s never happened. They don’t do it enough for it to happen.

38. How do you comfort one another during difficult times?

- Hinata is the type who drops everything and rushes to her side immediately, and Mana is really good at listening and talking problems out.

39. How would both of you react to find someone hitting on the other?

- Mana just gives them the death stare. Hinata would literally Fight somebody.

40. A question not on the list?

- Do I love these two with every fiber of my being? Why, yes. Yes I do.

Submission changes

So recently I have received a few submissions on my main blog here that made me decide to change how that works. 

You can only submit links now.

This is because I have gotten a number of image submissions and in the past fic submissions that really should be posted on the person’s main blog. I know posting to your own blog can be scary, but you deserve proper credit for the hard work you’ve put in!

It also makes me feel like you are using me, and that may not be what you meant to do, but it looks like that from my point of view. 

The best way to make sure I see something is to tag me with @themarginalartist and it has to be underlined like it is in this post or otherwise it didn’t work. I have my email notifications for stuff like this on. 

I really do love y’all, I just wanna make sure that you get credit for your work!

voltron writers: lance sometimes says things like ‘ten thousand is one thousand plus ten’ because he’s the airhead comic relief character :)

me, an intellectual: english isn’t lance’s first language. and although he’s now fluent (presumably due to his enrollment at the garrison), the occasional mistranslation can still occur. however, these slip-ups are in no way a measure of his intelligence.

He gotta give him that air you know

I’m afraid to tell you that I miss you because I know you won’t say it back.

I’m still working on it. to be honest, I can’t for sure say when it’s going to come out. it will when the results are good”. He is treating his mixtape with care like an album “my tracks haven’t been organized yet. it’s hard. I don’t know what songs to add and what kind of style to make the mixtape. you create a mixtape like you’re an album. I want to count this as an album. it’s hard to select as the quality has to be good” he will add later “I do worry about my mixtape. I didn’t know what kind of message to show.

I made a post last year about how SU is brilliant at showing how communication is essential for any kind of relationship, and how it’s key to solving conflict. But the element they add in Kevin Party is that sometimes, you need time apart first. To calm down, to realize things, to gain perspective. In the heat of the moment, emotion can really blur your judgment, and that just makes things worse.

There are times you aren’t ready to talk, and that’s okay. Communication is two-way, and if one person isn’t ready to accept or hear what the other wants to say, then that’s not communication, regardless of how many hours you spend “talking”. And the scary thing about it is this pseudocommunication can happen without you realizing it. You can feel “calm” and “open”, but it turns out you’re only hearing the other out to shut them down and invalidate them with what you think. And that’s what drags out conflicts.

Relationships involve people, and people have feelings. Hard logic and a self-centered perspective aren’t the best tools for issues like these. What’s key to resolving conflict is communication, true, but that only works if you have your head, you’re truly open to understanding the other person’s side, and you’re humble enough to accept and take responsibility for your contribution to the conflict. 

God, this show.

#meetjsecommunity

Let’s promise each other something: because darling, oh darling. I know you want to press pause on the movie that is your life, because I do, I do. And I know you sometimes get so tired of carrying the weight of the world on those slim shoulders. I know you look into the mirror and see plain features and feel roaring waves of inadequacy, I know, I know.

I know you’ve got a little voice whispering inside of you you’ll never be good enough. I know you try to protect yourself, to shield yourself to not care because you fear the heartbreak that comes with caring to much but doing this makes you put yourself on the sidelines, makes people stop inviting you and I know, God, I know how much this hurts.

So let’s promise each other something: whenever this happens, this little voice trying so hard to protect us and only winding up hurting us: let’s promise each other to cry a little, to cry a lot. To take a shower, to listen to music and really, truly listen, think about nothing else. To write about wanting to give up but to keep on going, to eat something healthy too, even if we eat up a whole pack of potato chips or chocolate cookies, to grant ourselves this small reprieve instead of hating ourselves afterwards for the way we can pinch our belly between skinny fingers.

Listen to me, please, let’s promise each other to take a walk, to walk past a bridge or a body of water, to admire the darkness but remember the coldness and to keep on going. Remember that stranger that smiled, the one that helped you reach a high shelve, that picked up some change and gave it back, to remember the bus driver that waited on that busy intersection to let you get on, to remember all those little kindnesses from strangers you’ll never forget and to remember that we, too, have got so many little kindnesses to give and that there must be a stranger out there somewhere that remembers these plain features, these brown eyes and not so white teeth.

Let’s promise each other, that, please, please, but let’s also promise each other to sometimes let go and cry and to look after ourselves. Let’s remember that being kind and nice and good does not mean letting people walk over ourselves. And let’s define ourselves: if we like to be alone, sometimes, if we like to close the curtains against the world and drown in music and song, why be jealous of that one friend that is always talking to someone if the mere idea of holding more than three conversations is exhausting. If you love that girl everyone else seems to find annoying, hold steady to it, say “I like her and I like you and is there a problem?” because nothing will feel worse, and of this I am so absolutely certain, nothing will feel worse than betraying yourself.
Darling please, let’s promise each other, that on those lowest moments, on those darkest nights, when we feel like no one will love us ever, we’ll think of our achievements, even if they were something that feels so small and insignificant, like eating one cookie less or getting out of bed, if we were proud of them they matter and so do we. So do we.

And let’s promise each other we’ll think of our families, or about the friends we’ve had and that even though it always felt like we were the second choice, we were a choice, so they wanted us in their lives. Let’s think of the stranger we once helped, and think that maybe they remember us. Let’s think of the things that we love, and let’s think about the fact that the CO2 we expel from our lungs feed plants and bacteria and that we matter. That we have done some good in this world and that hopefully we’ll be able to do some more. That everything will be all right someday as long as we keep going.
Darling, let’s promise each other, that though we are strangers that may have never met, I’ll love you and you’ll love me, and we’ll think about each other sometimes, because we understand each other so perfectly, because I know that voice in your head as well as you know the ache in my bones and the tiredness of my eyelids, and we’ll keep on existing and breathing and loving and not giving up no matter how many times our heart breaks because we know they are not alone in breaking and so maybe, just maybe, they will not be alone in healing either because we will have each other to think of, to remember and to smile through the tears together.
