doesn't this just make you smile

Houses During Pride Month
  • I am a shit who never posts and I'm only posting now because I signed up for a summer class at my new school that starts on Tuesday and I have 40 pages of homework problems. Yes.
  • Gryffindor: They are into everything happening, they're showing up at every fricking event. Would totally punch a punk in the face for making a homophobic comment. Just like a giant party. Pride colors all the way.
  • Ravenclaw: Has made so many signs. Why so many signs? You don't know. They don't know either. Signs everywhere. And stickers, but mostly signs.
  • Slythein: Wearing the most obnoxiously overdone clothing possible just to piss people off. If not, literally doesn't talk about it at all until someone makes a comment to their face that's homophobic and they just smile and stare into their eyes while they reveal their sexual/gender preferences.
  • Hufflepuff: Is hosting all the best house parties, has stickers all over their car. Might do something really cute like make pride cupcakes or wear a custom shirt.

Everyone is smiling except Keith, because he’s got better things to do than smile at you.  

Right! So I made y’all a few icons you never asked for! If anyone wants one with a different flag behind it, feel free to PM me, I’ll fix you up.

Fixed version: And by this, I mean I’ll 100% make this post about pride, and not about my headcanons for the characters :)

What it's like falling for the sign
  • <p> <b><p></b> <b><p></b> <b></b> (Check the persons sun or Venus you are falling for. If you check your own, that shows how the person who's falling for you feels like.)<p/><b>Aries:</b> You crave for closeness with them. You beg for them not to leave. It's hard to tell them tho, cause whenever you are with them, you forget what you were planning to say. Their presence makes you live in the moment. Falling for an Aries is like spending New Year's eve every day.<p/><b>Taurus:</b> "Oh shit I like them." Falling for a Taurus messes you up. You find yourself defending them. Having eye contact with them makes you calm and gives you hope. It would seem so easy to just make them be with you, but because they are so sweet you just do anything to make them happy. It really feels like Valentine's day to crush on them.<p/><b>Gemini:</b> You know they are a little shit and you like it. They make you feel a little spark every time you see them. Their smirk is your daydream. Seeing them walk away hurts your heart so bad. Surprisingly seeing them somewhere lights your happiness and excites you. Falling for a Gemini feels like the last week of school.<p/><b>Cancer:</b> You always find yourself wondering how come didn't you fall for them earlier. How could you not notice all these cute things in them. Every day you find something new to love in them. You wanna take care of them and share your live with them. You'd give them the moon. Falling for a Cancer is comforting. A good night's rest after a long day.<p/><b>Leo:</b> You knew they were beautiful, but when you fall, oh how can they shine so bright. You find yourself looking at them the way you've never looked at anyone else. You'd give them anything if they asked. Making them sad is your biggest fear. You want to be the wall they can lean on. You want their approval. The feeling you have when falling for a Leo is the same when having a romantic dinner.<p/><b>Virgo:</b> You would be the happiest person on earth, if you could just spend time with them. Being somewhere with them and getting to watch them live feels like an ultimate prize. Their laugh is your lullaby. Their touch would make you fel so accepted. You wanna be the thing for them to study and make them let you learn about them. Falling for a Virgo feels like a privilege.<p/><b>Libra:</b> It feels so sweet falling for them. You want to drown yourself in false hope. You do everything to brighten their days, but they don't notice. It's frustarating, but they give you the most to daydream about. If they looked you in the eye, your heart would stop. Your days feel like Christmas parties.<p/><b>Scorpio:</b> Falling for a Scorpio is so intense. You would throw yourself out there for them any time. Their touch makes you feel so wanted. You could just stand there and admire them for days. Kissing those lips is what you dream every time. The way they look at you makes you wanna do crazy things. It feels like being a voodoo doll when you fall for a Scorpio.<p/><b>Sagittarius:</b> It feels like they put a spell on you and are now acting all innocent about it. Their charm caught you and now you are trying to understand what should you do. It's frustarating, not knowing how they react to anything. You try to show them how much you care, but you don't know if they understand. Falling for a Sagittarius is like talking to someone behind a wall.<p/><b>Capricorn:</b> They seem so cute. Too cute. You can't handle their cuteness anymore. All their feelings are hidden and you are trying to find them. It feels like they are calling for you and running away from you at the same time. You try to let them know, but they seem to ignore or misunderstand everything you say. It's like playing hide and seek with someone who's so much better at it than you.<p/><b>Aquarius:</b> They seemed like so much trouble and still you fell. You let them take you. It feels pretty lonely to like an Aquarius. World makes less sense. Falling for an Aquarius feels like following them into a labyrinth and being left behind. Aquarius' happiness is the thing you crave for, so it doesn't matter to you.<p/><b>Pisces:</b> When you fall for a Pisces, you don't care about the flaws you are seeing when you get to know them. Even with their flaws they seem so flawless. Making a Pisces smile feels like such an achievement, even if it's not that hard. You just wanna sit there and watch them be happy. Falling for a Pisces feels like watching a child learn.<p/></p><p/></p><p/></p>

Steve and Natasha's son is having trouble with bullies. He's half Natasha, so he's got fiery red hair, and he's half Steve so of course he wants to fight the bullies who tease him about said hair. Natasha's away on a mission, so it's up to papa Steve to advise their son on what to do.

Natasha’s on assignment for at least another week, if not two. Which isn’t the problem, really. He’s confident in his skills as a father and a caretaker in general.  But.

But he is absolute shit when it comes to bullies.  Especially when it’s bullies and his son.  He’s not exactly surprised by his own reaction, granted, but he could do with a dose of Nat’s calm approach to these sorts of situations. 

Mark is picking at his dinner and studying the grain of the table far more intensely than it really warrants.  Steve thinks he understands now what he means when he hears other parents gripe about how hypocritical they feel telling their kids not to smoke when they’re sneaking a butt when they need one.   

“I’m not going to pretend I didn’t start a lot of fights, and I’m not going to pretend that you shouldn’t stand up to bullies.”   

Mark startles out of his thoughts, looking up to his father at Steve’s sudden outburst.

“They think it’s weird.” Mark screws his face up, light smattering if freckles across his nose shifting.  “Orange and just.”  He huffs.

“Your mother is way better at this than I am.  I don’t think you should get into a fight.”  Steve holds up a hand seeing Mark open his mouth.  “I know I did it.  Ask your Uncle where it landed me, more often than not.”

Mark cracks a smile at that.  “Bucky says you were black and blue as often as you were blond.”

Steve smirks.  “Every day.” He schools his features. “Listen.  You got no reason to be ashamed of what you look like.  Only 2% of people in the world have hair like you and Mum.”  He pauses.  “Look. I know it doesn’t seem like it now, but sometimes, sometimes envy looks like other things.”

Mark shrugs, spearing a carrot with his fork.  “Doesn’t change nothin’ about the jerks at school.”

Steve reaches across the table to smooth his thumb over the spot just above Mark’s shiner.  “I need you to stop fighting.  Just because you can win doesn’t mean you should fight.”

Mark huffs, exasperated, and sets his fork down to pin his father with a look he inherited from Natasha.  “What should I do, then?”

Steve sighed.  “You know, my Ma –your grandma- always told me to tell the truth.  I always did, and I’m not about to stop now.  I don’t know.  It wasn’t a lesson I ever learned, not fighting.”

Mark smirked.  “So I’ve heard.”

“Sass. –What I mean is, I know I’m supposed to tell you something about compassion and ignoring it or rising above it or that they’re taking their unhappiness out on you and that might all be true but,” Steve lowered his voice as if Natasha could hear him from wherever she was, “I’d still like to Have Words with those kids myself, even though I know the principal already did.”

“Dad.”

“Your old man only has so many good speeches in him.  Let’s work on this one together.”

Mark studied him for several long seconds before snatching Steve’s phone from the counter behind him.  

“What’re you doing?”

“Texting Uncle Bucky.”  Mark didn’t bother looking up.  “He wanted to know if the day ever came you admitted you didn’t know everything.”

Hello! I have an idea for the ficlet (feel better btw!). Okay: HS AU with popular!Dean and popular!Cas, they're those two annoying guys who make funny (but also obnoxious) comments in every single class, and make stupid, flirtatious remarks to each other like "Cas looks pretty hot today guys" or "I'm totally dating Dean, everyone" etc. Only thing is, they're secretly in love, but neither will admit it. I've had this idea for a while and I'd LOVE for a talented author to execute it.

Aaaahhh it’s been too long since I’ve done a High School AU and I’ve missed it. Thanks for this one and thanks so much for asking me to fufill the prompt! I hope I do it justice :)

“Please take your seats quickly. I want to discuss your quiz scores so we can go over any questions you may have before the final test.” Ms. Mills said with a stack of papers clutched against her chest.

Dean stretched his arms above his head as he flopped into his usual seat on the third row, next to the wall so he could lean up against it in times of extreme laziness. He sprawled out accordingly, dropping his backpack to the floor and draping his letterman jacket over his seat until the air conditioning kicked in during the middle of class like it usually did.

“Hey, hot stuff.” Dean said with a nod as Castiel sat down in the seat next to him.

“Good morning, Dean.” Castiel said, barely looking up as he aligned his binder and world history book neatly on the small desk in front of him.

“How was that student council thingy yesterday?” Dean asked, popping a piece of gum into his mouth.

“Absolutely dreary without your shining personality to brighten all of our days,” Castiel murmured, completely straight-faced.

Dean winked as Ms. Mills began talking again.

“Some of you need to look at your notes from the beginning of the year again,” she said as she began passing back the quizzes. “And some of you need to remember that - if you want full credit on the final test - the answer to ‘What are the seven wonders of the ancient world’ is not ‘Castiel Novak’s Ass’ written seven times.”

She frowned when she got to Dean’s desk, dropping the paper on his desk as the rest of the class laughed.

Dean clicked his tongue and made a finger gun at Castiel with another wink.

“Really, Dean? Don’t be childish.” Castiel said, just loud enough for everyone to hear. “We all know that’s not true. I haven’t done any squats in at least a month.”

Okay but Trini and the other Rangers all having an unspoken agreement to not talk about her scars from Rita’s attack.

They all want to ask Trini about it but they’re scared that she’ll just shrug it off and say it’s not a big deal, that it doesn’t bother her and that if they’re going to be Power Rangers, there’s going to be things that hurt them.

Until one day, they’re all just chilling at school during lunch and one of Trini’s teachers sees her and for some reason makes a big deal about her doing well on some sort of test and patting her shoulder before she walks away and Trini shifts uncomfortably. None of them say anything, they all just watch Trini carefully.

She’s still not used to the attention, so the stares she gets from them confuse her until she realizes that they’ve been waiting for her reaction.

Trini doesn’t feel pressured to talk about it, but as all five of them are leaving school that day she just blurts, “Some nights I can’t sleep. It’s gotten to the point where my mom got me some pills to help, but I don’t take them.”

Billy is quiet and nods, because after his dad died, there were some nights when he couldn’t sleep, too. Zack, Jason, and Kim, however don’t really know what to do with the new information. They’re not sure if they should mention that they’re okay with Trini needing help to fall asleep, or if they should ask if she has nightmares or if they should assure her that everything is going to be okay.


Trini goes on and says something along the lines of, “Sometimes I’m scared she’s going to come back, you know? Like, we got rid of her once and I don’t have nightmares or anything but it’s scary thinking one of you guys could get hurt, too. I think it would be worse for me if I didn’t have you guys. It helps knowing that you’d be here if I needed anything.”


They’re all just so taken aback by how honest Trini sounds and Billy tells her that since they’re Power Rangers, they’ll always there for her and that they’re like a family.

“Oh come on, you can’t stay stoic forever,” Roman pouted, sitting on the couch next to Logan, leaning in dangerously close.  “Honey, I love you, won’t you give me a smiiiile~?”

Logan stared forward at the wall, not breaking in the slightest.  This competition had begun as a frivolous way to pass the time, but now they were in it deep.  At this point, it was a matter of pride and spite that he win.  

“Honey, I love you, but I just can’t smile.”

Roman pouted at his loss and turned to Patton.  “Honey, I–”  

Patton burst into a fit of giggles and quickly slapped a hand over his mouth, tears welling in his eyes.  “Oh drat!”  He said after he was able to compose himself a little.

Hey kids qu**r is still used as an insult (gasp). Last week in band another drummer and I were getting instruments (if you're not quick to grab a part you get stuck with a slide whistle or smth since the school doesn't have enough actual drums) A kid was looking at the parts and the only one left was the tambourine or another cymbal. He announced that "I'm not playing the tambourine, that's qu**r." He later decided to give the part to another kid who was absent because "he's super qu**r."

hey this is a useful story but can i just say i completely lost my shit when you started complaining about getting stuck with a fucking slide whistle i’m sorry but that’s the fucking funniest thing i’ve seen all day, thank you for making me smile

anonymous asked:

There are a million things I love about Jikook but one of my favorite things is how JK clearly treats JM differently from the other members. And I don't mean that he loves them any less, I just mean that he doesn't act the way he does around them with JM. JK lets the others baby him and play around with him bc he's the maknae, but with JM, he always tries to be more reliable, mature and self-assured. He still does let JM baby him but they're so much more equal now and he loves that <3

Hello, Anonie! ♥ You made me smile so much with this what-you-like-about-Jikook confession! :))) I, too, love many different things about them, I probably couldn’t pick one. But I know exactly what you mean! We all make sometimes fun of him, insisting on that he’s not a child/immature. While it’s cute and funny sometimes it’s also real and it shows in his relationship to Jimin-hyung. And I think it’s beautiful, that against the maybe usual scenario of members, taking care of maknae and protecting him, Jungkook takes special care of Jimin and protects him (and thinks he’s cute and… …) <3 He’s doing it so naturally in last years my heart screams over him sometimes. Does your, too, Anonie? ^^ :D 

Anyway just few of my favorite moments showing mature Jungkook/Jungkook taking care of Jimin/protecting him came into my mind. There’s lot more, but…

His effort to protect Jimin showed on numerous occasions while walking at the airport. Even now he just won’t leave Jimin’s side and keeps him on the reach of the hand. Some time back he protected Jimin fully, not letting just the staff or managers to take care of it. When Jimin had an accident on the airport, while he almost fell/was pushed to the ground, Jungkook was his guardian for next travel. Or the time after Jimin fainted and Jungkook, once again, fully protected him in the best way he could, walking with him, protecting him from cameras slightly. 

I love the way he almost always waits for Jimin, whether it’s when they’re walking somewhere in MV shooting, or photoshoot, or on the awards, or after the concert/fansign, or just at rehearsals. He complains that Jimin is slow, but then he just waits anyway, because he won’t let him just walk around alone.

My heart exploded when I saw that on multiple occasions, while members were doing the “sandwich” thing, he lay on top of Jimin and as soon as others joined them, he stretched his arms around Jimin/supported his weight, so Jimin (and in this case TaeTae) won’t get hurt or suffocated. Like in 3rd Muster sadwich.

Also he cares for Jimin’s health and comfort, proving it, for instance, with giving him his jacket/hoodie (it happened more than once, I’m just using pictures of the most known one ^^)

It’s just the sweet things he does, because he cares about Jimin and his comfort and safety. I know this doesn’t explain even half of the things/vibes he gives about Jimin nowadays, but I (as you all know) love throwbacks and these are just sweet examples of Jungkook caring for Jimin very, very much.

It was maybe random, but still. Thank you Anon for this message, please, write me more often! Also anyone, feel free to tell me what’s your favorite thing about Jikook! Or if you’re torn, because you love *everything* about them just as much as I do. ♥

Bye & everyone have beautiful day/night/morning.

Well nothing else makes sense anyway so why not? Hope you like nonnie!

“Fortunately, love does too.”

The end of the speech is met with enthusiastic cheers and applause. Sana has tears in her eyes and is hugging everyone around her. Just as they all calm down, her phone starts ringing. She looks down and a huge smile appears on her face.

Yousef is trying to FaceTime her.

She presses the green button and his beautiful face fills up her screen. Too much of her screen actually.

Sana laughs. “Why are you so close to the camera? Back up a little bit so I can see Turkey.”

“Turkey?” he says in a mischievous tone. “You’d rather see Turkey and not me?”

She rolls her eyes. “How about both?”

“See the problem is, showing both would be a problem because geographically it’s not possible.”

“What?”

“If I moved, you wouldn’t see Turkey.”

The last word rings in her ears and it’s a little too loud. She turns around and there he is, standing a few feet away, wearing a white and golden kurta. Looking as handsome as ever.

She’s too shocked to talk, to move, to even blink. Because if she does, he might disappear.

The girls surround her and say, “You didn’t think the speech was the only surprise we had for you right?”

She’s too dumbfounded to even understand how and when and where they came up with this idea or did this, all she knows is that Yousef is slowly walking towards her and she’s having a hard time breathing.

“Eid Mubarak Sana. You look……stunning.” He says, with a little difficulty, apparently just as breathless as she was.

“What are you….I mean….” All her thoughts are jumbled and all she wants to do is wrap her arms around him and hug him for an eternity.

“I got a ticket in the mail three days ago, convinced my family for another two days, got on a plane this morning, and here I am now.”

She looks at the girls in disbelief and Noora winks at her and subtlety tells her to check her phone.

A new text from her reads, “Julian Dahl owed me a favor.”

Sana shakes with laughter and disbelief and happiness all at once. Then she looks up at Yousef, grinning from ear to ear.

“I can’t believe you came.”

“Don’t you remember? Alt for deg girl.”
