do's and don's

and here i bring you yet another kara/lena au that nobody asked for but that i’m sharing with y’all anyways because what else do i have to do with my life at 12:00 am.

  • james wins two tickets for the upcoming lakers game in national city but comes to find out that he can’t go because he has another important thing to do that night (i don’t know what thing exactly but the point is he can’t go), so he’s left with two tickets for the lakers and he’s not sure who to give them to, so of course he goes to kara: “i know you don’t like basketball, but seeing it live is such a different experience, you’ll enjoy it!”
  • problem is that kara doesn’t know who to ask to go with her, alex has a date night, winn is not going anywhere near a basketball stadium (highschool trauma), j’onn says he has no time for games. lena is one of her first options, but main reason she doesn’t want to ask her is fear of rejection. she’s a ceo! she probably has no interest in spending a friday night with her.
  • alex tells her she’s being ridiculous, lena’s her friend and she’ll enjoy spending time with her regardless of the activity, she pratically drives kara to l-corp so she can ask lena to go with her.
  • lena knows nothing about basketball, for a second she actually confuses it with beisball, but kara looks so cute and how can she say not to that face? so she agrees and kara pulls her into the biggest hug.
  • because lena has never, ever gone to a basketball game she shows up to kara’s apartment with a tight dress and high heels, her makeup on point as always and a big ass valentino black bag, meanwhile kara’s wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, maybe even a snapback if you want the complete Gay™ look.
  • lena is so confused the entire time, she watches as the players pass the ball to each other and hears the crowd roar when they make a triple. kara is no better, but she at least knows the basics because james explained them to her prior, so she gets into it after the first ten minutes, she claps with the audience, screams in chorus with the other people. she asks lena if she’s having fun, if she wants to leave but lena says no and kara probably buys her popcorn or something, popcorn that by the way kara ends up eating. 
  • halftime rolls in and lena takes the opportunity to answer all the messages that are unread on her phone, “i’m so sorry i swear i’ll only take a minute,” kara smiles and tells her to go ahead. 
  • lena is answering to one of her business partners when she hears kara choke on the popcorn and everyone around them whistling and clapping, so she turns to see what is wrong to find kara looking at the enormous screen in the middle of the stadium with a pink blush on her cheeks and wide eyes. the camera is focusing both of them with a heart around their silhouettes and “kiss cam!” written on pink letters just above their heads. 
  • everyone in the stadium starts cheering for them, “kiss! kiss! kiss!” over and over again, the damn camera doesn’t seem to find anybody else as interesting and though kara wants to laugh and write an enormous sign that reads that hey, they’re just friends! she catches the way lena’s heartbeat speeds up and how her breathing becomes uneven and okay, maybe a little kiss won’t hurt, after all they’ve become close after the recent events and what’s wrong with maybe platonically kissing your friend on the lips? a little peck and that’s it. 
  • however, once they turn around to look at each other kara notices just how green lena’s eyes are and how pale her skin looks and also how her red lips part to meet hers and when they finally kiss the screaming and whistling, all the noise around them disappears and kara can only focus on how soft lena’s is and how her lipstick tastes like strawberry and oh, god, when she feels her tongue caressing her bottom lip kara is sure she’s going to pass out. 
  • they’re both a little breathless when they break apart, a young lady sitting next to them gives kara a high five and then the second half of the game starts but kara can’t focus on anything anymore because she still tastes lena on her tongue and she realizes that shit, she wants to kiss her again. and again. and again. 
  • the lakers win by three points and lena’s driver is already waiting for them outside the stadium when the game ends, but the crowd is huge and she fears she’ll lose lena in the sea of people so she interwines their fingers together and walks them towards the exit ignoring the warmness that goes through her entire body at the feeling of lena’s hand against her own.
  • the car ride is kind of awkward, neither of them speak, they’re on each side of the car struggling on how to break the silence. lena sometimes catches kara looking and her and viceversa until it’s too much and kara blurts out: “i really liked it, the game. and also kissing you” and lena laughs before sheepishly nodding and saying “me too. i mean i liked kissing you, i didn’t understand the game at all.”
  • they make out until they get to kara’s apartmet. (。♥‿♥。)
  • before kara falls asleep she receives a message from lena that says “thank you, i had a great time.” with maybe a smiley face and two hearts and kara hides her face on her pillow.
  • the next morning when she wakes up and goes to work, everyone’s looking at her and whispering behind her back and kara’s afraid she might have a mustard stain on her white cardigan (it wouldn’t be the first time that happened). and then james sees her and before she can even say hello and ask what the hell is going on with everyone, he motions to the screens where a video of her and lena kissing is projecting, the entire internet has gone wild about it. the video that was originally uploaded to youtube has for title “lena luthor kisses cute stranger @ bball game.” kara wants to die on the spot.

Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film Statement by all Nominated Directors, 2017

On behalf of all nominees, we would like to express our unanimous and emphatic disapproval of the climate of fanaticism and nationalism we see today in the U.S. and in so many other countries, in parts of the population and, most unfortunately of all, among leading politicians.

The fear generated by dividing us into genders, colors, religions and sexualities as a means to justify violence destroys the things that we depend on – not only as artists but as humans: the diversity of cultures, the chance to be enriched by something seemingly “foreign” and the belief that human encounters can change us for the better. These divisive walls prevent people from experiencing something simple but fundamental: from discovering that we are all not so different.

So we’ve asked ourselves: What can cinema do? Although we don`t want to overestimate the power of movies, we do believe that no other medium can offer such deep insight into other people’s circumstances and transform feelings of unfamiliarity into curiosity, empathy and compassion – even for those we have been told are our enemies.

Regardless of who wins the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film on Sunday, we refuse to think in terms of borders. We believe there is no best country, best gender, best religion or best color. We want this award to stand as a symbol of the unity between nations and the freedom of the arts.

Human rights are not something you have to apply for. They simply exist – for everybody. For this reason, we dedicate this award to all the people, artists, journalists and activists who are working to foster unity and understanding, and who uphold freedom of expression and human dignity – values whose protection is now more important than ever. By dedicating the Oscar to them, we wish to express to them our deep respect and solidarity.

There’s so much useless shit that get’s perceived as productive under a capitalist society, the best example is the wealthy elite of the world who do fuck all and allocate all their work to someone else to allocate all that work to everyone else. 

They literally do nothing, they are literally more “useless” than us disabled people that they want dead so bad, because they do LESS than what we do.

The wealthy elite don’t have to fucking worry about if they can eat one day, or have a home another day, they don’t have to work to get out of bed, they don’t have to struggle through existence, they don’t have to file all their own paperwork for survival … lmao which is even less than nothing. 

Only difference is they got born in wealth so they can be useless and perceived as important and productive.

Usefulness is an illusion, and under our capitalist system, the useful [food workers, garbage people, maids, etc.] are seen as trash, and the useless/parasitic [wealthy elite] are seen as gods.

Hey, can I ask you something? KEEP EVERYONE DEAD. Thanks. I know you'll do this anyway, but Don't let the haters get to you.

Whatever I do is already decided, seriously it’s fine xD I always get messages with “suggestions” about the plot and I’m like “bruh this has been ready since august last year”

Unpopular opinion: I really don’t want Lotor to be manipulative towards Lance

I want a Lotor who falls for Lance and recognises Lance’s abilities as a pilot and a sharp shooter. I want Lotor to help Lance with his insecurities, and in return I want Lance to open Lotor’s eyes. I want the two of them supporting each other, I don’t want any of that “manipulating the weakest link” stuff. No, I want them to be as healthy as possible in any situation even if theoretical.

I want Lotor and Lance to get along despite differences. Seeing their personalities clash or connect would be amazing to me but only if it’s healthy.

Do I think this will ever be cannon? No. But if Lancelot ever IS cannon I kinda hope this is how it plays out.

How's your animation going?? :) is it doing well? Are taking rest after hours of work on it? Because I hope you do! I don't want you to overwork yourself! Please, take your time. Haters are just gonna have to wait a little longer. Besides that, I hope you have a great day/night! ^^

It’s going well ^^~
And yea, I definitely take my time :) I’m sorry that it takes sooo long, but I don’t have the same energy as with ECHO where I was sitting daily 3 hours after work on it :V….

I need to do some normal illustrations or just chill a bit for a change haha
Also the quality has gone quite up I think, so this takes even Qualitywise more time then ECHO :’D ….

anonymous asked:

I really don't want to do this, but I don't have anyone to talk to? My parents have a friend over and I feel so unsafe with him around, he really creeps me out. He's a grown man and I'm sixteen. He tried to hold my hand and he keeps coming into my room and moving my things around. He wants to take me out on a walk. To the forest. I'm honestly so freaked out even though it's kinda irrational, isn't it? I'm really sorry to bother you, I just needed to get it off my chest.

I don’t think that’s irrational whatsoever. I’d mention it to your parents.

anonymous asked:

I hate when a customer calls and as I'm listening to them my boss starts talking to me & telling me what to say?? like I know what I'm doing and you don't know what the customer is saying? I can't listen to two people at once and I don't want to ask the customer to repeat themselves after every sentence...

People that do that(talk to me when I’m on the phone) irritate me so bad it’s in my top three pet peeves. I will swat at you if you do it to get you to shoo. -Abby

League players have such funny answers sometimes that it makes me both laugh and cry at the same time. Today a very fed Warwick came to 1v3 my team (I was Soraka, my ADC Varus and my mid Viktor). Me and Varus die and Viktor stays next to us doing nothing. “Why don’t you attack him?” “I’m not a noob like you who focuses the tank.” Warwick was alone, there were three of us, yet he didn’t want to focus Warwick when he was alone in our base. I really don’t know if I should laugh or cry because of this.

whatever you do, don’t forget about how good raphael santiago was before he turned. don’t forget about how pure that boy was. don’t forget about how he wanted to get rid of vampires, probably thinking about his little brothers safety. don’t forget about how a fifteen-year-old boy wanted to fight against the beast, believing that god will help him because he was always a good catholic and he went to church every sunday so dios should be by his side, right?

whatever you do, don’t forget about how raphael was turned into this monster (or at least raphael thought so about himself). don’t forget about how he was left alone and killed his friends. don’t forget about how he wanted to kill himself because he hated what he became. he hated what he had done. 

whatever you do, don’t froget about how guadalupe santiago loved her son. don’t forget about how she was ready to do anything, just to get her rafa back. how she believed he’s out there, missing his home. missing his mamá. don’t forget about how she was ready to give magnus all she had (even though she didn’t have much and she was barely holding on as it was), just so he would find her little boy.

but most importantly, whatever you do, don’t froget about how raphael loved his mother. don’t forget about how he decided to live just for her. don’t forget about how he pushed his self-hate aside just for her. how he hurt himself and burned himself by holding the cross his mamá gave him or walking through the sacred land, just so one day he could come back to her and show her his love and respect. don’t forget about how he would sacrifice literally anything to make his mother happy because she raised him and he loved her more than anything. don’t forget about how he would swear that he won’t ever drink human blood because that’s not something guadalupe would approve of. 

whatever you do, don’t forget about how he craved blood, crying into magnus’s arms and saying that he can’t do this. that he’s not good enough, he’s not that strong. he’s doomed. don’t forget how magnus would hold him, stroking his back and whispering that raphael was even more than enough. “maybe you can’t see the sunlight anymore, rafa, but you have sunlight inside of you. you’re better than this. your mamá made you better than his, pequeño” magnus would say. 

whatever you do, don’t forget that raphael went through SO much just so casserole clare would have sebastian kill him. just because. without any reason at all. don’t forget that the sh writers decided that he would bite izzy not once, but twice, after he swore he won’t do this. again, without any reason at all. just because.

whatever you do, you can’t forget that even though raphael had his mother and magnus, he saved himself. 

raphael santiago saved himself. and he deserved so much better.
