everything she had to give up

anonymous asked:

hi can you share some andreil/renison/foxes hc's about them studying? midterms are coming for me and i need motivation from the foxes ;-;;; thanks!!!

good luck for midterms!

  • allison studies best at her desk in the suite, and has to lock her phone in her drawer so she can’t be distracted by it. she takes renee out for ice cream as a treat for them (mostly allison tbh) once she’s got through what she needs to for the day
  • renee is the kinda girl who would have a studyblr if she had time for it. her notes are SO. GODDAMN. PRETTY. and she has little checklists and stuff for everything? that she actually uses? the whole time too, she doesn’t get halfway through the give up? fucking amazing. anyway she studies in their suite too, mostly so she’s ready at all times for allison’s study break sweets. also it means they can coordinate their makeouts for maximum study effectiveness
  • dan is like. the Queen of studying. she makes those notes and exercises her bitch. she goes to the library quite a bit but also quite likes hanging out in the foxhole court lounge when it’s empty (wymack sometimes sticks his head out and makes her coffee the way she likes, because they know each other pretty well after all these years). she isn’t the world’s best student but she smashes those tests into submission because no one is gonna stand in her way including a bad grade
  • matt is pretty chill about studying. he keeps up with his coursework really well during the term, so it’s just a matter of rereading and making study notes and answering practice questions to make sure he’ll be able to do okay. he knows that he’s going pro so he figures out exactly what he needs to do to pass and makes sure he can do exactly that and no more. dan bans him from the girl’s room beforehand, but she can’t ban him from the court so sometimes he shows up to annoy her there
  • aaron goes to the library and studies like the straight a student he is. he knows his shit already but he does get stressed enough over it all that he probably can’t sleep. katelyn is no help because she’s the same, but at least aaron has company while he’s awake at 3am squinting at a page of text. they crash in katelyn’s room once they’re done and sleep like the dead for hours
  • neil is a notoriously shitty student, so unsurprisingly he’s a disaster just before midterms or finals. he pretends to be really chill but he is Panicking. he’s terrible as asking for help, but he does so when andrew reminds him that he needs to pass or he’ll get kicked off the team (with his typical tact, ofc). that reminder also means he studies without breaks for hours, so andrew takes it on himself to distract him long enough to eat and probably kiss a little bit
  • andrew? study? yeah right lmfao. anything he hasn’t absorbed from the lecturers or his tutors talking he doesn’t know because he’s never done a reading in his life. his test papers are a mixture of perfectly answered questions and blank spaces. his eidetic memory isn’t common knowledge so most of the foxes assume he goes somewhere else to study. jokes on them he’s up on the roof sending neil one-to-three-word texts and smoking
  • kevin is such a nerd that he probably secretly likes studying. he goes over a lot of readings and delights in getting good grades. his highlighter is his best friend. he probably studies sat in the court because it’s combining his two true loves - history and exy. wymack probably makes him coffee too, but neither of them talk about it
  • nicky just. represses the fact that he needs to study until like a few days before, and then he spends every spare minute obsessively trying to learn everything for the course while crying. once he’s finished he sleeps for twenty-four hours. no one knows how he’s passing. no one knows how he’s still alive. not even him

So let’s imagine Keith and Lance mutually pining for each other all through their war against Zarkon and both being completely oblivious. The rest of the Voltron crew have long since been driven crazy by the sexual tension and the longing gazes.

They had tried everything. 

  • Allura thought that a relationship between them would be amazing for Voltron so she supported them 100%. 
  • She let them both know that romantic relationships between paladins was actually very common and has never been discouraged, hoping that they wouldn’t let Voltron stop them from confessing.
    • Lance hit on her asking if she was trying to tell him something.
    • Keith left the room once he realized what she was talking about.
  • Then she got sneaky and would pair them up for missions hoping that being alone would give them the time to confess.
  • They were more focused on the mission then on each other. 
    • Missions were always successful though so A+
  • Coran thought that the reason they hadn’t confessed yet was poor communication (he was right) and tried to focus on ‘team bonding’ between the two. Had mixed results.
  • He tried getting them to complement the other
    • Lance would confess to thinking Keith was a great at combat.
    • Keith would get flustered, have no idea what to say, and tell Lance he was ‘almost kinda funny’ 
    • Lance would get offended and say Keith’s face was ‘almost kinda normal looking’
  • They had to be separated and he didn’t try again.
  • He tried giving them advice by telling them about traditional Altean courting and great love stories from all across the galaxies.
    • Altean traditions are so confusing and weird though.
    • ‘Wait, they had to eat a what?’ ‘A raw Blinzarri egg. It was about the size of your face and tasted horrendous. A suitor was suppose eat an entire egg to prove their dedication to the courtship, the more you ate without puking, the more in love you were. Why King Alfor ate three of the nightmares in order to court the queen. Had to spend a few days in a healing pod afterwards though…’
    • Lance is disturbed. Keith sneaked out while Coran was distracted.
  • Hunk was over the moon when Lance confessed to him that he liked Keith because he’s seen the way Keith looks at Lance.
    • ‘Can I be the best man?’ ‘Hunk!’
  • But even though Lance confessed that he liked Keith to Hunk, he wouldn’t confess to Keith.
  • Hunk doesn’t want to push, but he also wants his friends to be happy so he tried to leave subtle hints for them.
    • ‘Hey Keith, did you notice Lance hitting on that male alien at that last planet?’ ‘Don’t remind me…’
    • ‘Wow, it sure was nice of Keith to help you with your training today, huh Lance?’ ‘Hunk he almost broke my nose…’
    • ‘Hey Keith, would you mind talking for Lance for me? He seemed a little down today.’ ‘I think you would have better luck cheering him up then me.’
    • ‘Doesn’t Keith look like he’s struggling with that? Maybe you should help him, Lance.’ ‘Nah, this is way too entertaining.’
  • Shiro was thrilled when he realized that Keith and Lance were both crazy for each other
    • Was less thrilled when they kept dancing around each other after the first month. It stopped being cute after the sixth month and he realized they needed help.
  • Shiro’s horrible with romance. Someone would be hitting on him and he just freezes up. Has no idea what to do with himself. He’s so bad with romance.
  • So he tried to talk to the two of them and see if he could convince one to confess.
    • ‘Hey, Keith, I noticed you smiling at Lance today.’ 
      • ‘Shiro, I swear to god, no.’ 
      • ‘I just-’ ‘No.’ 
      • ‘You can-’ ‘No I can’t because he doesn’t like me and I don’t want to talk about it. I’m gonna go train.’
    • ‘Lance, I wanted to talk to you about you’re feelings for Keith.’ 
      • ‘What feelings? Loathing and the obvious jealousy he has for my amazing skills? Those feelings?’ 
      • ‘No Lance I’m talking about-’ 
      • ‘Oh hey, Shiro, hows your shoulder doing? You landed on it pretty hard during that battle.’ 
      • ‘It’s fine Lance, now about-’ 
      • ‘You’ve gotten it checked over? Good! If only Pidge would do that…’ 
      • ‘Pidge was injured? I’m gonna go talk to her, thanks for telling me Lance.’ ‘No prob!’
    • Five minutes later he realized what Lance had done and gone back to talk to him, but the sneaky little shit was gone.
  • Pidge did not sign up for this. These longing sighs and dreamy looks and so much sexual tension she’s almost choking on it.
    • She’s honestly happy for them but also thinks they are an embarrassment to the human race so…
  • Her? Help Lance and Keith get together? Not happening. She’s not butting her nose into their business and she would be quiet happy not knowing anything that those two do together.
  • But God their just getting sad now.
  • She got desperate and used the handcuffs from when they first began training to force them together.
    • They went to Coran to get them off and Pidge played it off as a prank.


They manage to defeat Zarkon and the Galra empire and save the universe before they manage to get Keith and Lance together.

Then after the final battle while everyones celebrating, Lance gets so happy and excited that he kisses Keith without even thinking and only realizes what he’s doing after like three seconds.

Keith had gone still in shock when Lance kissed him. He snapped out of it when Lance started panicking and apologizing and pulled him in for another kiss.

The rest of the team were screaming in the background while Lance and Keith kept kissing through laughter and big smiles, both ignorant to the hell they had put their teammates through for years.

baby just take aim

for @agrabitches, because she puts up with me


In four years with the Wellies, Jack had never had a nickname stick.

(It was two years before anyone even tried giving him one, because somehow the boys read ‘crippling anxiety’ as ‘completely boring’ and never bothered. Then a small blond with a penchant for pet names and pies came in with a Mr. Zimmermann and, like all other aspects of his life, everything changed.)

His first season with the Falconers is much the same.

Tater calls him Zimmboni for about two weeks before Thirdy drunkenly announces the name is ‘no good.’ “Jacky-boy doesn’t clean up the ice,” he tells the faces that haven’t asked. “He wrecks it.” They cheer and they drink and the subject is, Jack hopes, dropped.

It isn’t.

They try Zimmy next, and Zimms, and then just Zimmer; each lasts a game or two before the awkward shuffling in the locker room as whichever teammate (not friends, not yet, but at least he goes out with them once or twice when asked now) stutters out how it’s not right. It just doesn’t fit. “Sorry man,” Marty pats his shoulder. “You’re just a hard dude to nickname.”

Jack tries to smile but isn’t sure he succeeds. “So I’ve been told,” he manages dryly, but really he just wants to go - not home. His apartment, sure. To bed, yeah. But he hasn’t once called or even thought of his place in Providence as home. 

Instead he goes out with the team to celebrate the win, half because his parents and his therapist have been urging him to start setting down a root or two and half because an earlier text said that Bitty was going to a movie with the Frogs and wouldn’t be home until later.

Maybe it’s because that’s already the direction his mind was taking, but he gets to the bar and can’t help thinking about Bitty. Maybe it’s because that’s already the direction his mind was taking - or maybe it’s the song blasting over the speakers that he can’t help but recognize. “Beyoncé,” he says mostly to himself, because it’s a lesson that he’s had drilled into his brain over the years.

Snowy laughs when he overhears. “Of fucking course,” and he slaps Tater’s arm to get his attention. “Of course this Canadian motherfucker doesn’t get a single fucking one of our references, but fucking recognizes Beyoncé in under ten seconds.”

Tater laughs his sweet, infectious laugh and slings an arm across Jack’s shoulders. “Of course he know,” and the sentence trails off into a rather enthusiastic, if off-key, rendition of the chorus. “Everyone know Beyoncé, even Jacky Z.”

The table shakes from the force of Guy pounding his fist onto it; it startles Tater and Jack, and gets the attention of the other players (and the surrounding tables). “Holy mother of hockey,” and Guy turns his too sharp, too serious gaze on Jack. “Jack Zimmermann.” When blank stares and a few confused nods are all the words earn him, the knuckles around his glass go white. “Jack Zimmermann,” he tells them again, voice gruff. “J.Z.

There’s a stunned, almost reverent silence around the table as six of the seven men accept the words like a sudden lightening bolt of truth, and the seventh wishes desperately that he had never come tonight. “Jay-Z,” they whisper among themselves, and Jack knows without knowing how that this will be the one that sticks.


Later, when he’s laying in bed in the apartment that still isn’t home, Jack rubs the back of his neck and admits over Skype “So they gave me a nickname today.”

Bittle is, predictably, thrilled for him. “Honey, that’s great news! I’m so proud of you for getting out with the team mor-”

“It’s my initials.”

There’s a moment where Jack watches his face fall and knows that Bitty is concerned that maybe the initials is a sign he’s not being welcomed, followed by a moment where his eyebrows shoot up in surprise as he says the letters to himself. The resulting pause is broken by a stuttering start-stop of Bitty’s mouth opening and closing wordlessly, and finally a cut-off shriek. “Oh my - I never - all this time and - I can’t believe I - of course - oh my-” He gropes weakly at the screen of his laptop, voice gone progressively squeakier. “Jay-Z.”

For a moment the under-decorated bedroom feels a little bit more comfortable, a little bit more like a place he could be happy, and Jack laughs. “I think I’m a little bit ashamed for you that someone else realized first.”

“Don’t you chirp me over this,” his glare is rendered ineffective by the way his face splits into a beaming smile. “I just found out I’m dating Jay-Z.”

Jack hums a few bars of a familiar tune. “Hey, Ms. Carter.”

I miss my girl Lucy Lane so much. I wanna see her at the new DEO sparring with Alex and Kara, and bonding with Winn, and getting to know Mon-El and giving him that little “Hey, I know you’re into my friend Kara but if you make her sad I’ll seriously mess you up” talk. I want her to be that one person who’s smart enough to figure out that James is Guardian on her own - just some intuition she has from knowing him so well - and be like “Hey, I know we’re not together anymore and everything we had is behind us, but if you get hurt I don’t know what I’d do. Be careful, please”.

She’s such a badass, powerful character and, like Cat Grant, I really miss her presence.

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

My Timeline of Top Surgery & Recovery with Dr. Raphael in Plano, Texas.

This is just a master post of my top surgery experience & recovery. I had double incision mastectomy with nipple grafts in Feb of 2016. I also had lipo. The total was $6,750 ($6,000 for the masc and $750 for the lipo on the sides.)
Pictures will be made available at request.

Pre-Op:

  • Because I do not live in the Plano area I drove 5 hours to Plano the day before my surgery and had my pre-op apt that same day.
  • At pre-op I met with one of the nurses and with Dr. Raphael. This is your opportunity to talk to him about your chest, incisions, to bring up concerns and so on. In my case, my mom asked all the questions because she wasn’t as versed as I was on what was going on. 
  • At pre-op they give you a lot of things to sign, they take before photos, and just go over the basic run down of everything you need to do before surgery.
  • Try to plan your pre-op apt as early as possible that day. You will have to go get your prescriptions the day before your surgery and you don’t want to run into the pharmacy closing on you or any issues with the pharmacy not accepting the scripts. I went to Walgreens to get mine filled and they gave me a hard time which led to an hour run around between Walgreens and the doctors office.
  • I was prescribed extra medicines because I had issues with nausea in previous surgeries. If you have concerns about nausea tell the nurse at your pre op and they will get you what you need to prevent you from getting sick. They will walk you through possible medicines you may need based on your medical history and/or allergies you have.
  • The anesthesiologist will call you the night before your surgery. They will tell you not to eat anything too heavy for dinner and to make sure it is pretty bland. I couldn’t eat any dairy either. Also, clear liquids for the most part. Of course they advised me not to eat after 10pm for safety. 
  • Make sure you have a support system with you. First of, you can not have surgery without someone to be with you but I took my mom, my best friend and his brother with me. The surgery center also will not let you have surgery without people to care for you afterwards.
  • Pack or get yourself some button up shirts. You will not be able to get into t-shirt well if at all that first week or so. If you are trying to get into t-shirts that first week you will more than likely pull something as you are not supposed to be lifting your arms at all. (Think about the arm range of a T-Rex. That will be you.)
  • I am a pretty hairy individual so I shaved my chest a couple days prior to surgery. About a week before surgery you should start prepping your body for surgery. You will wash your chest with Betadine Skin Cleanser. You should get this information when you set your surgery date. If you don’t get it, email the office.
  • You will take 500mg of Vitamin C daily in addition to any multi vitamin you may be taking. DO NOT take any extra Vitamin E because it may cause some bleeding.
  • Do NOT take any aspirin or ibuprofen one week prior to surgery and up to two weeks after surgery. (i.e. Bufferin, Anacin, Advil, Motrin, Datril, Excedrin, Anacin-free, etc.)
  • NO SMOKING. Especially 1 week prior and two weeks after surgery.
  • Also, you will have to stop testosterone 2 weeks prior to surgery.

Surgery:

  • My surgery was at 7am and lasted about 3 hours according to my best friend.
  • When you get there you will check in at surgery check in desk on your right after you go through the doors.
  • When they call you back you will change out of your clothes into the hospital gown and socks. (I took this opportunity to take my last selfie in my binder.)
  • You then will be escorted to your surgery bed. The nurses will get you all cozy and warm (I personally overheat easily so I had to have them cool me down a little bit) and start your IV. The anesthesiologist will make an appearance to just walk you through some things. Dr. Raphael will also come in and draw the incision marks and other surgery related things on you.
  • After everything they will use your IV to put you to sleep and start wheeling you to the surgery room. I remember being wheeled to the back and everyone being all smiles. I knocked out right when then they put me on the surgery table.


Post-Op:

  • I woke up and I only remember them asking me if I wanted something to drink (sprite? ginger ale?). I also remember being wheeled out to the car and my best friend and his brother getting me in the car. I remember being placed in the bed in the room. I remember taking a post op selfie and being able to use the restroom by myself.
  • Wearing sweat pants and/or athletic shorts are a must after surgery.
  • My first meal after surgery was mashed potatoes and gravy. Something pretty light is always best.
  • You can only sleep on your back and you have to sleep elevated.
  • I personally had a problem staying awake the first 3 days after surgery or so. I would fall asleep in the middle of doing things. 
  • You will have a post op the day after surgery. Here they will teach you and whoever taking care of you how to care for your dressings for the next week.
  • Your chest is dressed with pads to soak any blood from your incisions. If you had lipo you will have a half pad on those entry points below incisions. Over that is 2 ace bandages that are wrapped tight to deal with swelling. (They are meant to be tight but if you have trouble breathing then loosen them. They are there for support.) The ace bandages will be wrapped over your chest and your lipo points. The ace bandages stay on majority of the time unless you are changing the pads. DO NOT MESS WITH YOUR TAPES OR ANY OTHER BANDAGES! Only change the pads once a day.
  • Dr. Raphael does not use drains.
  • I developed a minor rash around my lipo points because I had to much moisture there from the neosporin. If that happens to you stop putting the neosporin there.
  • At your one week appointment they will remove the dressings and you will see your chest for the first time.
  • Reveal day is very emotional for most people and I knew that I would forget everything that the nurses told me in terms of my continued aftercare. My tip is to have someone record the entire exchange so you can re-listen to the aftercare instructions later.
  • At one week I was told I could drive again, I could sleep on my sides, I could shower again, and that I could wear t-shirts again. (I personally waited to drive longer than that though because I did not feel comfortable at all.)
  • You will continue to wear the ace bandages for a month. It’s hard to think about binding after surgery but its to contain swelling, so don’t cheat your recovery.
  • For your nipple care, you will be given Adaptic (non-adhering dressing) that is meant to keep your nips moist. you will apply some vasoline to the Adaptic. Then you cover that with a gauze pad and medical tape or fabric tape. (All things you can find in the first aid aisle at the store. The nurses will give you some to get started.) You will do this until you run out of the Adaptic they give you. Which should be about a month to 6 weeks.
  • The tapes on your incisions will fall off on their own. Don’t pull them off. They should all fall off on their own around 4 weeks to 6 weeks.
  • After they fall off you will place provided silicone strips for your scars for a while.
  • At the time of surgery, I was delivering pizzas for a living. I will admit that I jumped the gun on returning to work too early. I ended up going back after 3 or 4 weeks. When you can go back is determined by what kind of work you can do.
  • At 6 weeks, my left nipple looked to have healed wonderfully. I pulled the last of my visible sutures, as instructed, that day. My right nipple still had a little spot to heal but seemed to be healing just fine.

Random Tips:

  • If you have a hard time taking pills like I do. You can try taking them with apple sauce.
  • Make sure you have Miralax and Fiber. Pooping after surgery is really important because the pain meds will stop you up.
  • Don’t over do it. Sit down and rest. I am the type of person that will do everything but I can not stress how important it is to sit down and rest and not try to be Superman. Watch your range of motion, even if it feels, “just fine”. It will have effects on your healing.
  • Netflix. Netflix. Netflix.
  • I don’t hear this referenced too much but for those of you who play instruments, I play violin among others, I would suggest waiting the entire 6 weeks before playing again. 

The nurses will honestly give you everything that you need for recovery. There is no need to worry about recovery supplies. They really give you everything. Make sure you read all of the paperwork they give you in terms of pre op and post op. I did have surgery in Feb of 2016 so things make have slightly changed. This is also MY experience and MY experience alone. My health is different than yours so please listen to the nurses and doctors. I shared my experience to help others have an idea on what to roughly expect.

If you have any questions, feel free to message me or send me asks!

another thing I noticed yesterday

lots of body-shaming Melania and criticizing her fashion choices.  don’t fucking do that? I don’t give a shit if she has had a nose job or wears bad dresses or not, that 1) is her business 2) has zero bearing on her political or social standing and 3) is completely irrelevant to everything wrong with the Trump administration  

also don’t pick on Barron or armchair diagnose him or make memes out of him, he’s a fucking ten year old and completely under the control of his parents.  He might grow up to be awful but he is currently still a child and we don’t know him and we shouldn’t know him because He Is A Child.

if you are truly against this human dumpster fire and what he stands for, you will not resort to the same bullying and misdirecting tactics of which he’s so fond

Request:  Could you do one where the reader is pregnant with newts baby and going into labor in the chest and not being able to climb back up? I love your blog by the way!

An imagine where the reader and Newt are married and she goes into labor, she has complications while she’s giving birth to the twins, one boy and one girl but at the end everything turns out fine and a happy ending. Please make it fluffy.

You were wandering around the case, heavily pregnant with twins. All the beasts had become very protective of you and the unborn babies, which you loved. It was nearing the due date and Newt had told you to stay in your bedroom out of the case, in case (lol) something happened. You sort of blew him off, said everything was going to be okay. This was going to be your last day down with the creatures and who knows when you’d see them again. Your worst fear was that you’d die in child birth and never get to say goodbye to them so that was what today was for. You were currently with the Bowtruckles. Pickett was with Newt, who was feeding Frank and you were just talking to the Bowtruckles. “So, as you guys know, I’m going to have my own babies and today is the last day I get to see you before I have them. I just want to say that in case, in case I die in childbirth then I want to say good bye to you lot, I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t.” You said tears dripping down your cheeks. You always had a soft spot for the Bowtruckles and you had your little friend Greg who was one of them. You walked away but you heard a splash. You looked down to see that your water had broken. “Newt?” You called. He dashed towards you and immediately carried a worried expression.

“What? What’s wrong? What’s happened?” He asked frantically.

“My water broke.” You said awkwardly.

“Oh. Oh! Well we have to get you upstairs, to St Mungo’s!” Newt panicked. He started pacing. You felt a contraction and had to sit down.

“Newt! We don’t have time to get upstairs. I can’t get upstairs now that I’ve started having contractions.” You said, wiping a bit of sweat off your forehead. “We have to apparate.”

“No! I’m not letting you apparate! What if you splinch?!” Newt thundered.

“I don’t know, I can’t just have the babies here Newt! Come on!” You reasoned.

“I’ll set up a blanket and you can just, I can help you-”

“No! You aren’t going to birth our children, I’m apparating.” You said finally. Newt sighed but held your hand while you apparated to St Mungo’s. You were immediately rushed to a hospital bed where the nurses put your legs in the things. (You know the thingies lol) After a long four hours in labour you finally had your twins in your arms. Rose and Hugo. After a couple of days you were allowed to appparate home, something you didn’t really want to do with two babies. You were successful though.

“I want to show our babies to the babies down in my case.” Newt said excitedly. You smiled and nodded.

“Me too.” You said smiling like an idiot.

“Just apparate down.” Newt said, and then was gone. You apparated and were greeted with Frank nuzzling the babies with his head. You smiled and gave him a pat. You went and showed all the weird and wonderful creatures you babies, which they all took to be new members of their family. It was a lovely moment for all four of you. You and Newt had a wonderful family.

taylor york: the glue that keeps paramore together. i’ve been saying it since the day josh and zac left and i said it when jeremy left and i’m gonna say it till the day i die.

like we all know hayley would never give up on paramore, she’s expressed that many times, but taylor, he doesnt talk about it much, and to know that each time he’s literally been like “fuck everyone else i still love being in the band I’m gonna stay” just makes me really appreciate him so much. he should be more appreciated and it makes me mad when he doesnt get that

he really is a true friend, and really is just as passionate about paramore as hayley is. i’ve seen ppl say they probs won’t last many more years but they will cause hayley has taylor and they are literally so fucking talented they’re unstoppable.

conclusion: thank you taylor york for never giving up on paramore, for never giving up on hayley, for pretty much just never giving up on it all. you’re passionate af about all this and it’s the best thing

okay but do you know what angers me. Jason and Reyna were best friends for years. Like, parallel to Percabeth best friends probably. Before Hera, they probably had movie nights and sparred together and she probably won at everything and when one had the flu the other would make them stay in bed all day and run up and give them soup every few hours. They’d take turns buying each other hot chocolate and Reyna would experiment with cooking Spanish food for them and Jason would feel like he had to give something back so he’d cook for her and set the kitchen on fire and they’d end up ordering pizza. Jason and Reyna knew each other for years and when he was missing, Reyna would have been out of her mind with stress. Not only was she running this entire camp on her own, but her best friend was missing. And then, he comes back, and she probably hadn’t slept that night and she’d left that bit out of her braid because she knew he liked it and Jason ignored her. She watched Percy and Annabeth run to each other like this was all they’d been waiting for for two thirds of a year - which it was - and she watched them kiss and hold hands and Jason ignored her. Reyna probably accepted that he had a girlfriend. She’s not an unreasonable or jealous person and I 100% think that she went “okay, we’re still friends like always”. But Jason ignored her and showed Piper around the city and barely acknowledged the years of friendship they’d had and it angers me a lot okok

OK BUT LIKE

What if one day Pidge finds out about how homesick Lance is when he let’s slip that he used to fall asleep to the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach by his house and how hard falling asleep is some nights without it. Pidge totally understands because she misses her glow in the dark star stickers and her stuffed animals that used to help her sleep, and she wants to help so she cobbles together a noise maker that sounds like ocean waves and gives it to him. And she apologizes that it’s not perfect and rambles about it but he just grabs her and hugs her super tight and tears up while thanking her for giving him back even the smallest piece of his home. And she blushes and tells him that she understands missing home a lot, and they stay up and talk about all of the things they used to have in their rooms and life and everything.

And hey, what if Pidge had a stuffed elephant that she got at a build a bear type place that she dressed up like an astronaut and named (Dr.)Penelope Peanut. (She was 7 when she got her.) And even when she hit her teens she still slept with it, and when she missed her dad and brother or worried about things she would hold it close and it would help her sleep. But she had to leave it at the garrison and she tells lance how much she misses it, so to return the favor he uses his sewing/knitting skills and stuff he finds around the castle to make her a replica of it. And it’s not perfect and the cloth doesn’t really match but it’s cute and dressed as a paladin and Pidge pretty much cries when he gives it to her. He tells her that he knows it’s not her elephant but maybe she can be like its little sister or something and Pidge instantly dubs her penelope jr. and even though she’s kinda embarrassed she hugs Lance and tears up and thanks him. 

Even after they are grown up and back on earth and everything is better Lance still listens to his noise maker when he’s away from home and Pidge still holds tight to her elephants, and both are forever grateful to the other for what they did to make the hards times a little bit better. 

RFA+V and Unknown who are and aren’t virgins and why? love your blog!
-anon

Yoosung:

  • Precious bean baby is definitely a virgin
  • He’s probably has had a past girlfriend or two (they weren’t really serious relationships either), but he’s never given himself to any of them
  • He’s such a nervous guy and he’d really want to make sure he truly was ready and was in love with the person for his first time

Jaehee:

  • She isn’t a virgin
  • She’s regrettably mentioned before that she is not innocent
  • I can see Jaehee having a past, serious partner who she gave her first to
  • Plus she’s probably had more than one serious partner too

Zen:

  • He used to be a bad boy, remember?
  • Though he stated that he never fooled around with girls willy-nilly, he did do the frick frack quite a few times (but only with his girlfriends, not one night stands)
  • Zen does somewhat regret giving himself up so easily though

Jumin:

  • Virgin
  • Despite with the whole 50 Shades of Jumin Han thing, before his route in the game he really disliked women
  • Jumin tends to be really uptight with these sort of things (canonically not believing in moving in before marriage, for example)

707:

  • He’s had to seduce women for his agency work handfuls of times, so he’s not a virgin
  • It always made him feel dirty and guilty, but he never thought he’d actually fall in love so what did it matter
  • It wasn’t until MC that he changed his perspective

V:

  • Maybe a virgin, maybe not
  • Rika probably never got that intimate with V, and he respected her wishes 
  • But V most likely has had past girlfriends, and he is a very trusting person
  • So who knows? He is the ultimate enigma of the RFA after all

Unknown:

  • With being trapped in Mint Eye almost all his life following some cult, I think it’s safe to say that he’s a virgin
  • And if anybody in the cult tried to come onto him I don’t think he’d care about them either way

Did anyone else find it strange how Regina didn’t even put up a fight when Henry was about to kill her? We all know she loves him and would never cause him harm, but we also know that she has magic. She could have done exactly what we saw Emma do in this scene and froze his sword or poofed it out of his hand… so why didn’t she? Is her self-destructive streak really that problematic? We all know how many times she has put herself in harm’s way or has challenged people to kill her. Did she decide in that moment to just give up? Did she think that she had failed Emma and was therefore worthy of death? In this case, I really don’t think so. So this is my reading…

We all saw how far Regina was willing to go to wake Emma up. She challenged her. Really challenged her- to the point of even threatening and then killing her parents. At this point, it seems she has done everything in her power to encourage Emma to find her strength and fight her- to be the saviour. And it doesn’t work. But this- this is her last-ditch effort. She takes it one step further and puts her own life on the line. “Why,” you ask? Good question! I have two possible theories:

1) Because deep down, Regina knows. She knows her feelings toward Emma and the strength it carries. And she believes in its power- that maybe Emma’s love for her, in whatever form it possesses, is just as strong. Strong enough to wake Emma up. Strong enough to save her life. So when Henry walks into the room and threatens to kill her, she doesn’t put up a fight, nor does she suddenly forget her magical abilities and cower, or even give up. No. Without a hint of hesitancy, she closes her eyes and extends her hands. She is ready. 

But does she know for sure that it will work? Probably not. Who could? But she believes in Emma- so much that she’s willing to risk everything to bring her back. I guess you could call it an act of true love. So despite the writers’ efforts to throw us off the track and make us think this was entirely about Henry… well, they failed!

2) If you take a look at this meta, Emma starts to ‘wake up’ the very moment Regina tells Henry she won’t hurt him. You can see an instant switch in Emma’s expression as she starts to contemplate (she barely even notices when Henry tells Regina that he will hurt her). It’s because of Regina’s words that Emma begins to wake up. It’s because of Regina’s love for Henry. That is the strongest emotional tie between these women- the love they both share for their son. And it is clear that Emma doesn’t have a single doubt in her mind that Regina’s love for Henry is just as strong as her own. So I guess you could say that the same applies for Regina. She believes that, by completely lowering her defenses and telling Henry that she won’t harm him, Emma will recognize this act as genuine- that she’d recognize that Regina does indeed love Henry as much as she claimed she did. That she is his mother, too. And Emma does notice. If you look back at the actual scene, Emma is not looking at Henry before he tries to execute Regina- she is looking at Regina. A clear confirmation. And when Regina asks how Emma remembered, this is what she tells her:

          When you couldn’t hurt Henry… he was about to actually kill and become everything I never wanted him to be. That’s when I knew.

When you couldn’t hurt Henry. Emma changes the focus after this line to the thought of Henry darkening his heart- she basically elaborates by expressing her fears as a mother. That is what throws most people off. But in Emma’s immediate response to Regina’s words and threat of danger, it is clear that it is Emma’s recognition of Regina’s love for their son that brings her back to her own.

          When you couldn’t hurt Henry.


So taking both theories into perspective… which is the truth? Was it Emma’s love for Regina that brought her back? Was it the recognition of the love that they both share for their son? Or… was it a combination of both? We all know that True Love is the one thing that can break any curse. We’ve seen both Emma and Regina break curses though sharing True Love’s Kiss with their son. But what else have we seen? Emma and Regina’s combined magic doing the impossible and destroying an indestructible trigger, breaking open doors sealed by a literal God (True Love… the most powerful magic of all). Emma and Regina time and time again sacrificing themselves for one another (True sacrifice is about saving the ones that you love). Endless parallels between Swan Queen and canon True Love couples (Snowing, Jaladdin, Rumbelle etc). 

So what caused Emma to wake up? I’ll leave it up to you to decide. But this I will confirm- Emma’s curse was broken without a True Love’s Kiss. In fact, it was broken without even a single touch or magical intervention. And it was through BOTH Regina and Henry. Is that confirmation that Swan-Mills family is a three-way True Love? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. But I’m quite certain that we can all agree on one thing- that the unique bond these three individuals share is, without a doubt… tight as fuck!

Imagine Steve adopting twins after a few visits to an orphanage, but not telling anyone - he just decides to surprise everyone with the the news, even setting up a room for them and everything else, but maneges to keep it a secret somehow!

Giving a quick rap at the door, she wasn’t surprised when no one answered. It was too quiet. After a quick glance around, she opened the door.

She braced herself for what she would find. Hoping Steve had found himself a hobby, she anticipated a sad apartment dedicated to a life lived decades ago. The rift in the Avengers still hadn’t fully healed. Then one day, Steve found himself someplace to call home and promptly dropped off the radar.

Closing the door behind her back, she thought this is the wrong home. There were big legos on the living room floor. Not the tiny kind, but colorful fist sized building blocks scattered on the carpet. A half formed tower sat at their epicenter. From the door, she could see two kitchen chairs with booster seats and more than a few cheerios crushed underneath.

Turning in place, she took in the room, nothing of Captain America or Steve Rogers was in here. The wall was lined with framed photos of happy kids on swings, running in the park, or at the zoo. Curious George, and Scooby Doo dominated the pile of DVD’s. A bent copy of Tiny Titans was left under a lamp next to a worn stuffed dog. By the front door one pair of big blue Nike sneakers lie under a half dozen tiny shoes.

Stepping back out into the hall, she froze when she saw a family on the stairs. It took a second for her to recognize Steve with his dark beard, and a sleeping toddler draped over his shoulder. Another toddler holding Steve’s hand looked up at her with wide brown eyes. Steve released his hand and ruffled his curly hair.

Natasha realized it wasn’t the beard that made Steve look different. When he smiled at her his whole face lit up. She had never seen him smile like that.

“I was going to surprise everyone.” Steve says moving closer to the door.

The boy on the ground hides behind Steve’s legs. Tugging on Steve’s jeans, he whispers loudly “That’s an Avenger, Daddy.”

Steve smiles “She sure is, big guy. She sure is.”

Riley Matthews had never felt more fire burning beneath her skin then she did after her phone argument with Lucas. Riley is pacing around the room when her mother enters. Riley jumps in fright. 

“You’re up early,” Topanga says as she sets her briefcase down on the table, opens the fridge and takes out the juice. 

Riley mumbles an excuse and sits herself on the sofa not wanting to arouse suspicion. 

“Did Finn get off to soccer okay?” Topanga asks as she pours herself a glass of OJ. 

“Yep,” Riley says bluntly. 

“Is everything okay, honey?” Topanga gives her daughter a quizzical look. 

Riley contemplates venting to her mother but before she can fully think it through Riley’s muttering, “Boys stink.”

First day in my English class, our teacher gives us a speech about how intelligence doesn’t = success. She told us a story about one of her old classmates who failed everything, dropped out at 16, and had the nickname “cheerio” because of some ‘questionable’ things she did at a party when she was 14. She then told us to look up her classmate and a picture of a scantily clad woman came up. Us being 15/16, we immediately assumed porn star/stripper. Turns out that “cheerio” became a model after she left school, moved to america, got LOTS (LOTS) of money, invested that money VERY WISELY, married a rich property developer, and happily retired at 25. The lesson here is don’t give up on yourself, and if your teacher makes you look up “Rachel Deadman” on the first lesson, assume that you are in for a very interesting year.

Just had a woman come into the shop and came straight to the counter and asked about a goldfish bowl. I explained that we do not sell bowls because of their various downfalls that make them unsuitable for fish. She told me she needed a cheap tank immediately because she’d been given a goldfish for Christmas. Since it’s still a few days before I assumed she meant she was getting a fish but no. She had gotten one from her works secret Santa and it was currently sat in her car in a jar.
They also gave her a castle ornament because obviously that’s all they need.

She was more than happy to give the fish what he needs but by the time we got her everything she’d need she ended up spending £100+ because someone didn’t think their gift through.

If they had the choice (and the choice was obviously theirs to make) why would they choose to redeem Mary? That is literally the least interesting path for her character, and even Mary didn’t buy it completely. Let her be evil. She could have been better (worse) than Moriarty. Hell, she could have actually been Moriarty. She could have been smart. She didn’t want to be a housewife and mother.. she didn’t want to give up everything for the man she loved! The writers wanted those things for her, but I refuse to believe that she did.
