family and religious holidays

Here, have some Jewish Holts (+ autistic Pidge) headcanons from the Voltron AU I’ve been writing (though most of these work on canon universe, too). I haven’t managed to explore these much in the actual narrative, yet, but I wanna talk about them so here they are:

  • The entire Holt family is Jewish, but they’re not a super religious family. They mostly just celebrate major holidays + Hanukkah.
  • Of the siblings, Matt is marginally more spiritual, but Pidge is way more into Jewish cultural traditions.
  • Matt makes a lot of jokes about “putting the ish in Jewish” and proudly refers to himself as a “lazy but sincere Jew.” But when the going gets tough, his faith is a big comfort to him.
  • Pidge is more-or-less agnostic, but you can pry her Jewish cultural traditions from her cold dead hands.
  • The family keeps Kosher during holidays (most notably Passover) but they don’t really bother the rest of the year.
  • Except Pidge. Pidge decided at some point that she’s going to keep Kosher all the time because it just doesn’t make sense to follow a rule only part of the time. (See also: Pidge is totally autistic.)
  • That being said, Pidge is never about blindly following rules, religious or otherwise. If there’s one thing her family’s faith has taught her, it’s “question everything.”
  • Although Matt doesn’t generally keep Kosher, a lifetime with his sister has led to him reflexively turning down blatantly non-Kosher food items on a pretty regular basis. I’m not sure Matt even knows why he doesn’t eat Jello, but he’ll probably turn you down if you offer it to him. (And then turn right around and eat chicken Parmesan without registering the irony of the situation.)
  • In addition to keeping Kosher. All the time. In the midst of a family that does not. Pidge also has a lot of food aversions (see: peanuts). A LOT. Of food aversions. Many of which are Oddly Specific.
  • She also has at least a couple food allergies/intolerances in the mix. Hey, at least it’s easy to avoid mixing meat and dairy if you don’t consume dairy at all?
  • Cooking for Pidge is a delicate endeavor. Everyone’s pretty sure Hunk has superpowers.

As someone with my own laundry list of religious/health/sensory dietary restrictions: Jewish Pidge with a million dietary restrictions brings me great joy.

Today is Bituun, the day before Tsaagan Sar (Mongolian New Year)! 

Bituun is a much lower-key holiday than the celebrations tomorrow. Religious families may burn candles to symbolize a wish for enlightenment for all people. To start the new year clean, it is good luck to clean out your house, settle debts, forgive enemies, and of course make huge quantities of delicious buuz dumplings to eat tomorrow. 

In the evening, the old year should be seen out in the company of your closest friends and family.

When Sebastian Stan comes out on Twitter, thanking Marvel and Chris Evans for making him realize he is gay, he has no idea what will follow. Between his tweet going viral, interviews, actually meeting Chris Evans and college, Sebastian finds his life turned upside down. It isn’t always a bad thing.

Holidays and Traditions

In Veda City, there are many classical holidays and a few new ones. Christmas is generally celebrated by the city, but with an emphasis on family and friendship rather than any sort of religious overtones. Likewise, traditional holiday time is given to students - Christmas, Easter, etc. - but students of who celebrate other faiths are allowed time off and time away from class as needed. In terms of traditions, that generally is up to the citizens of Veda, with a handful of old superstitions turning into traditions in the city streets. By and large, Veda’s differences in culture in terms of holidays and traditions come in the summer, when the Summer Student Festival and the Gauntlet take place.

The Summer Student Festival

The Summer Student Festival is a festival that takes place the last two weeks of every July. The month long festival is contained to Central, where students from all over partake in games, hang out on the festival grounds, and eat delicious festival food. The festival is meant to celebrate the unity and strength of the city, and is capped off by the Summer Tournament, which itself is capped by the Gauntlet. Students not in the Gauntlet, and non-meta students, can participate in the Games, excluding the Gauntlet. These games are much like Track and Field, and include races, hurdles, swimming, and feats of strength and valour. Medals are awarded for each event (gold, silver, bronze) and the school that takes the most medals is crowned the winner.

While the games are meant as a symbol of unity, there is obviously a sense of competition to them, especially seeing as students sign up under their schools. The school with the most medals is often considered to be the best school in the city, but the true mark of a good school is in the Gauntlet, and schools will spend months preparing their students for the competition in order to try and win.

The Gauntlet

The Gauntlet is a metahuman tournament and power showcase. Teams of three form up from the various schools to take each other on in a massive, tournament style competition in the Gauntlet Arena.  You must be at least a Level 2 to participate, and you must have at least one combative metahuman on your team. There is a maximum of 256 teams placed in the Gauntlet and each team that signs up is put through preliminary rounds before the tournament to determine the 256 teams in the Gauntlet.

Teams battle each other to move on through the bracket and eventually a winner is decided, with loser brackets happening as well between major rounds. The winning team is given medals and a monetary prize, and the school is awarded the Gauntlet Trophy for another year.

Urban Legends

Another major part of the culture of Veda City is the urban legends. There are many urban legends within the city, some rooted in truth and some completely ridiculous. The urban legends are mostly whispered by students, who often get creative and bored enough to do such things, and many online message boards exist to study and discuss some of these urban legends.

Some of the notable legends of the city include government conspiracies, rumoured metahumans, and technology that has no business existing.

The Man Who Can Touch the Universe is the most infamous of the true urban legends, and refers to a man who can see anything, past, present, or future, and while his reputation has built him up into something of a god in this urban legend, to the point where many believe him to actually be some sort of god, this urban legend does, in fact, refer to Nicholai Stavos, whom many do not know actually exists.

Other urban legends, true and false, include White Noise - a song that can shut down powers, Red Noise - a song that can make your powers more powerful, a group of mythological monsters stalking the dark sides of the city, whispers of powers that can’t reasonably exist, such as shapeshifting, true flight, the myth of the level six, the theory that Gertrude Grey isn’t dead, but is possessing someone, the belief that Silver Water Farming is poisoning the water to brainwash the citizens or stagnate the growth of metahumans, the whispers of a notebook with all the secrets of the universe, and the theory that Veda City is secretly building an army of level 5s beneath the research centres.

But most of these can possibly be true. After all, the city would have at least found out about some of them.

But which ones are true? Which ones are fiction? And which ones were blown up beyond their original details, like Nicki?

Just another secret to uncover in a city full of them.

Trying - MC // Ramadan Series

Originally posted by popecalum

Hi guys! I mentioned earlier this month that I would potentially write a series of pieces centered around the boy dating someone who observed the month of Ramadan. There’s a lot of blurbs and pieces floating around out there of the boys celebrating other religious holidays with your family, and I figured some inclusion would be a nice thing. 

Word Count: 1276

In which Michael tries to understand.

Ashton // Calum // Luke


You laugh at the utterly confused look on Michael’s face; eyebrows furrowed and lips pouted to the side. Until this point, you’d thought he was following your explanation pretty well. Guess not. “So you guys don’t eat at all?”

From the other room, you can hear the quiet snorts and giggles that come from the rest of your family, followed by the quiet reprimand from your mother. They’re finding his confusion as cute and as amusing as you do. You’re smothering yours pretty well though, but you can tell Michael’s kind of embarrassed he’s just not grasping the concept you’ve been trying to explain.

It’s not his fault though. Michael hadn’t been exposed–really exposed– to the inner workings of Islam until he met you. And even if you weren’t the picture perfect subscriber to the religion anymore, there were still some aspects ingrained in you, some traditions, some practices you’d always follow. It was a big part of your childhood.

In his defense, he is trying very hard to understand. And the furrow of his brow is pretty damn cute. “You’re going to have to explain it to me one more time.”

You turn fully to face him, pulling one leg up onto the seat of the chair and tucking it underneath you. With your free hand, you reach out to pat his thigh and give him a reassuring smile. “Don’t worry about it babe, it can be confusing if you didn’t grow up with it. It’s fine if you don’t understand.”

“But I want to understand. This is a part of you, so it matters to me.” Michael insists, looking utterly frustrated with himself now. He runs a hand through his mess of hair, “I’ve been reading about Ramadan since it started and I think I get it but, I also just….don’t get it?”

A part of you wants to coo at him, the sentiment warming your heart. Michael’s dedication to understand just reinforces how serious he is about this relationship. It’s something no one has ever bothered to do before. Your mom crosses back into the kitchen, heading towards the fridge to begin making a meal for Iftar. She sends the pair of you a soft smile, adjusting the knot that holds her headscarf in place.

“Alright,” you start, shifting again to get comfortable on the hard kitchen chair. You can tell your mom is simultaneously eavesdropping while trying to look like she isn’t. “What do you understand? What don’t you understand?” You figure it’ll be easier to on the both of you if you don’t have to reiterate the things he’s already managed to understand.

Michael holds up his hand, all the fingers folded towards the palm like he’s about to tick them off a list. His raises his index finger, “First, you guys-Muslims-don’t eat for an entire month?” It’s almost right, but he phrases it like a question so you assume he’s asking for clarification.

You nod. “Almost, babe. Ramadan lasts an entire month. But obviously we can’t go a straight month without eating or drinking. It’s a day-to-day thing, from sunrise to sunset.”

I would like to cordially remind everyone that September 11th is also Eid al-Adha. This is one of the two holiest days of the year for Muslims and is celebrated based on a lunar calendar. If you see Muslims celebrating, this has nothing whatsoever to do with the September 11, 2001 tragedies and everything to do with a beautiful religious holiday. Please share, especially with your Islamaphobic family members and neighbors, who are sure to be just dreadful about this.

Writing Women of Color as a Non-WoC

Anonymous said: Sorry dumb question… Is it ok if my main character is a WOC and I’m not? I like drawing from my own life experience etc… but the lack of diversity in today’s media is disgusting so I was thinking maybe to help bridge the two I could have her family have some of my family’s traditions (i.e. religious holidays we celebrate for our ancestors/tradition but we’re not religious or something) Am I just being way too weird? The last thing I want to do is offend anyone. please help…

It’s very much okay. Just do your research on the Woman of Color at hand, meaning the experiences that might affect her as a Woman of Color in x region. There’s common experiences she might have with women who are also her race, but note everyone is an individual and WOC of any race are not monoliths of their people with the same thoughts or opinions, even if there’s some common experiences and issues they might deal with (such as the stereotypes, colorism and fetishizing aimed at them).

There are some differences from yourself you might write in, such as how she handles her hair, how people might react to her race depending on who she encounters, and so on; just avoid becoming hyper-focused on her race as opposed to her. Learn who she is first and foremost, then how her being x in x society affects her.

And she can definitely have had life experiences like you. WoC/PoC deal with breakups, annoying parents, goofy friends and all that just like, well, people do. So don’t get caught up on your differences. There’s research for that. Focus on how she might be like you.

Now, onto your religious holidays and traditions; what are these traditions? Note there are PoC of many different religions so it’s likely not strange if your heroine’s family takes part of traditions that you do. I’d need more details on that to touch on it further there, so provide more if you wish!

anonymous asked:

im kind of new here so i dont know if youve recieved this question in the past but i was wondering if youre religious and if so what religion? this is just my curiosity asking feel free not to answer this. i know to some this is very personal information.

I don’t mind talking about this at all, I enjoy it. I’m on my own weird sort of journey with it but I really love it. I love religion, I love spirituality, I love what humans have found for themselves collectively. I love that so many of us believe in something. It’s beautiful. And maybe I like studying that more than I myself believe in something. My dad isn’t religious, and my mom is Jewish but we don’t celebrate most of the holidays. So our family isn’t actively religious. I’ve never gone to church with them. I’ve gone a couple times when I was younger with some childhood friends and a few times with my last boyfriend. When I was a sophomore in high school I dated this older guy and and he asked my dad if he could borrow a book on zen buddhism. I don’t know if he ever read it, but when we broke up he gave me a box of all of my stuff. A bunch of my dad’s books were in it on buddhism. So I started reading them. Then my dad gave me Be Here Now by Ram Dass, then the Lazy Man’s Guide to Enlightenment by Thaddeus Golas. They started to change me, still do whenever I read them. I called myself a Buddhist for a while in high school. I didn’t mean it though. I was just learning. And once I graduated, I started exploring it all a bit more. I took a class on the history of dreams within cultures, I took a class on religion. I bought more and more books. I have so many spiritual and religious books I have yet to read. I think I took the religion class because I wanted to find something I believed in. I remember writing a paper comparing paganism and christianity in spite of my boyfriend. I wanted to open his mind, he wouldn’t read it. I really wanted to belong to something. I wanted to believe in God. I wanted to learn how to pray. I wanted to see the brighter sides of religions, not the distorted ones. But I loved every religion I learned about. It was all about love, all about each other, all about being better for the whole world and for yourself, for a higher something. I couldn’t pick just one, so I didn’t. Since then I’ve been reading more and more books and studying different cultures and ideas. Ram Dass really sparked something in me with everything he had to say. I read a lot of different things out of interest for years and more recently I’ve been reading things, once again, to search for something. I wanted to find God. I wanted to meditate and understand mantras. I wanted to pray and believe that prayer worked. So a few months ago I was reading Grist for the Mill by Ram Dass and it was amazing. I read it so fast and it was just so interesting and he said everything so matter-of-factly and then it pissed me off. I was like “Woah everything is actually bullshit. Everything is made up. We created it all for ourselves. How could he possibly know all of this? How could he say that these are the rules? That this is how I get there?” And then I just got depressed and was like “What the fuck is the point of anything?” I started reading the Tibetan Book of the Dead and it pissed me off too so I stopped. I didn’t read anything spiritual for a month or so. I was just angry about it all. Which is silly. There’s a reason we’re all searching for something. There’s a reason groups of people collectively believe in one thing. I think I was just mad that I wasn’t buying it. I was mad I couldn’t find God. I was never one to pray, hands pressed together in a church. I didn’t understand it. I prayed for a few months because I had lost something. I selfishly prayed. I’d fall asleep holding this stone that a shaman gave me and I’d wake up with it still in my hand. I’d walk outside at night and pray. I was full of anxiety and I was so depressed and I just wanted God to exist and to save me from it, to fix me. I wanted him to bring somebody back to me because I felt so weak without them. And then I stopped praying for a long time. I’m not mad anymore, but I still don’t know what I believe in. I’ve started to pray but now it’s not for myself at all, and I think that’s becoming a problem. I pray for people who aren’t around. I pray for strangers. I pray by writing. In my journal, for my book.. I write on the back of receipts or loose papers and fold them up. Put them in a prayer box at a local shop or send them down the river. I have a couple malas. One is rosewood and I wear it around my wrist everyday. I went on a spiritual retreat back in February and it was on the altar during an important part of it and I know it has all of the blessings in it. I have a rose quartz mala that I hold and move the beads when I want to. But mediation is far from me. I can’t sit. I’m finding different forms. Balancing rocks. Walking. Drawing. I don’t know if I believe in anything still. I don’t want to try to understand it. I don’t want to pretend God is real. Maybe he is but it’s not the way I’ve been told to think for most of my life by the people around me. I’m still fighting against that image. And there’s a lot of things that I don’t understand and I don’t want to blindly say yes to any of it. My faith is in something that I can’t pinpoint. God is not a god. God is something else. Something smaller and everywhere. Something soft that doesn’t speak. I’m taking the same religion class again, 3 years later. Maybe it’ll spark something, but maybe I’m just interested in people and I want to learn again. My religion, my faith, is in my writing and in nature and in interactions with people. I believe in myself more than I believe in anything else. I don’t know anything. If you ask me this question again in 3 months I will most likely have a different answer.

anonymous asked:

what makes you think zerrie is fake??

here is all the evidence that its fake 

My Proof That Zerrie Is Fake

Before you read this, let’s all give a round of applause for Zayn because without Zayn, Little Mix wouldn’t be where they are now. *Clap clap*

*I’m not hating on Perrie or Little Mix! If you don’t like what I say, don’t read it!!!* READ ON YOUR OWN RISK!!!

When Little Mix were on X Factor, Zayn said that he fancied Perrie in an interview and he constantly tweeted about them on Twitter: (X/X/X/X/X) Plus, he mention them a couple of times in some interviews. Perrie knew that Zayn liked her. She refused to go on a date with him or just talk to him in general.

Little Mix won X Factor and One Direction did a charity single with them. Rumours gone out that Zayn and Perrie kissed backstage. (X/X/X/X) When Perrie was on Sugarscape, she completely denied the whole thing and said she doesn’t want to be in a relationship because she’s wants to focus on her career. (X)

My whole point with that is that Zayn basically helped Little Mix through X Factor. I’m not a Mixer and I didn’t follow Little Mix on X Factor but it doesn’t change the fact that Zayn boosted Little Mix votes at the final.

Few months later, we randomly got these:

When Perrie tweeted Zayn and he replied back to it, everyone was buzzing, trying to figure out who Perrie is and fans being fans, they followed her and send hate to her. Then, randomly, Perrie, Jesy, Leigh-Anne, and Jade deleted their personal account and moved to the LittleMixOfficial one. Modest! saw that Perrie were getting more followers and more attention than the other girls. Modest! made them delete their account and moved to the official account so people can follow and know more about Little Mix for the fame of the band.

A month later, before Little Mix’s album came out. We get these lovely pictures:

That’s when Zayn said his favourite vegetable is a Avacado. (X) Articles came out saying that Perrie stayed the night at Zayn’s flat, basically giving more fame to Perrie saying that Perrie and Zayn are together. (X) Now that Perrie’s personal twitter is deleted, fans that actually likes Perrie would have no choice but to follow the official Little Mix one, giving the twitter account more followers, so that means, more fans for Little Mix before DNA comes out.

Before Zayn went back to tour in the US for the UAN tour. We got some pictures of Perrie and Zayn together again. But this time, we had them on scooters and them kissing:

Including some articles: (X/X/X/X/X)

Those kissing pictures honestly gave Little Mix alot of fame. With these pictures, everyone now knew that Perrie is officially dating Zayn. A lot of people disliked her and gave her alot of attention. Majority of fans followed Little Mix on Twitter. Now that Modest! was satisfied with the followers, now it was time to promote the DNA album.

Now that I explained you how Zayn gave Little Mix fame, now it’s time for me to prove that Zerrie is fake. *I’m not hating on Perrie. If you don’t like what I said, I highly recommend you not to continue on.*Scooter pictures: Zayn lived in a complex with the boys. The complex that they lived in had a gate around it, so no fans or paps can come through and taking pictures of when the boys come out or come in their homes. The scooters pictures that were leaked on the internet were crystal clear and HQ. So that means someone let the Pap through the gate and actually snap the pictures. Now that pictures are out, Perrie is getting loads of fame because she’s dating Zayn Malik from One Direction. Knowing the Media, they’ll interview her to know more about Zayn Malik’s girlfriend and ask her loads of questions.

You see how Zayn is looking straight into the camera? Someone is there, snapping pictures of Zayn being ‘cute’ with Perrie while they ride the scooters.

Not only did we get HQ pictures, we got some fan pictures (from a distance).

Do you notice that the pap is gone, so they didn’t have to ride the scooter around the complex being ‘cute’. Do you also notice Jonnie next to Perrie?

Remember that article that Zayn said he went to Perrie’s house and met her family and was completely terrorfied to meet Perrie’s brother Jonnie? Remember that? (X) And that article was posted in October. Zayn met Jonnie’s brother before that…in his complex, not Perrie’s home.

Kissing pictures:

Do you see how neither of them has their arms around each other? A real couple would’ve been all over each other, trying to get them closer to each other than possible. While Zayn is doing all the kissing and Perrie is just there, touching lips with him. She could’ve at least wrapped her arms around his neck to show a little more affection than that. Yeah, Zayn did say that he hated PDA, but he didn’t mind to make out with Perrie in front of the Paparazzi.

When Louis was at the airport with Eleanor before he left for tour. They kissed:

When they kissed, she had her hands on his face:

When Liam and Danielle pictures were leaked out of them being together and them kissing:

She has her arm around Liam to pull him closer. As a normal couple would do.

We all know that Perrie doesn’t like Zayn and she wanted to focus on her music career. Perrie made a joke saying that they were all going to be nuns and stay out of relationships. Now that her career is on the line, she decided to take Zayn back and help her with her career.

(I’m not going to get into Zayn hooking up with girls while touring because someone else got into that. [X])

Perrie Talking About The Kissing Pictures and Zayn:


Do you see how the title of the article says, ‘Zayn treats me like a princess.’ Then she says: “I like to be treated like a princess and I like thoughtful gifts." Switching Perrie’s words I see.

"They’re so cute together. Zayn worships the ground she walks on." 
"I can definitely see them lasting. He loves her to pieces.”
Perrie: “I’m blushing!”


Perrie meeting Zayn’s family on Eid:

We all know that when couples meet each other families then it’s a serious thing. So, we get pictures of Perrie meeting Zayn’s family on a religious holiday.

We gotten a lot of pictures of Perrie meeting Zayn’s family. Normally, when people meet each other’s family, you’re talking with the parents to let them get to know you, so theres really no time for pictures. Also, Zayn is a very private person. We all know this, I’m pretty sure these pictures being released would effect him a little. Also, his family members were the one to post it on Instagram, then quickly deleted it.

I don’t know how this picture got into the public, it just randomly popped up on Twitter. Now pictures are released, a lot of people that doesn’t know anything about Perrie or forgotten that Zayn is dating Perrie are saying that they’re legit about the relationship and all of that. So more people are shipping them together. (I doubt that Zayn family knows that he’s with Perrie for publicity.)

What’s weird about this, when Louis met Eleanor’s family we didn’t get crap load of pictures of them being together with each other family members. But then, we have a lot of pictures of Perrie with his family members. I know his sister Safaa and his cousin like Little Mix and they’re cited that Perrie is at their home so they take pictures and post them. I understand 1 picture, but this much? Expectually when Little Mix is working on their album and trying to get them more followers on Twitter. Things like this aren’t coincidental. 

Perrie posting a picture of her doll on Zayn’s chair:


We don’t have pictures of inside of Zayn’s flat. But we know that’s Zayn’s chair. But beyond the chair, do you see Zayn’s picture with his parents? And pictures with his family in the back? That gives us a clue that Perrie is in Zayn’s house. So now the Media thinks that Perrie and Zayn lives together, but Perrie said that she lives with one of her band mates. (X) With articles saying that Perrie is moving with Zayn, everyone is thinking that they’re serious with the relationship, so more people are following Little Mix on Twitter for Zayn’s ‘girlfriend’ Perrie.

But we have a picture of Zayn’s sister, Waliyha sitting on the chair:

Do I have to explain anymore of this? Perrie pretty much turn the chair around, so we can see Zayn’s picture of his family in the background so we can know that she’s chilling at Zayn’s house. Even if she didn’t turn the chair around. We really didn’t need to see the background of where the chair is.

Hatchi:

Look at Zayn’s hand. Do we really need to see Zayn’s hands? But without Zayn’s hands, we would’ve thought that Perrie bought Hatchi on her own. Plus, when she tweeted P+Z to cause more attention and for more people to follow the official account for more fans and more followers on Twitter. No only did it catch attention on Twitter, the Media jumped onto it, saying that Zayn bought the dog for Perrie and they’re ready for a family since there testing the waters to see if they could start a family. (X)

Zayn tweeting about ‘DNA’:


Modest! saw that ‘DNA’ wasn’t getting much buyers, so Modest! brought Zayn back to this again for him to tweet about it. (X/X/X) And of course, people are going to listen to Zayn and download the album.

I’m not going to say anything about this, because it’s self explanatory.

Perrie and Zayn spending Christmas Together:






This tweet actually got so much attention because Zayn doesn’t celebrate Christmas and people were attacking him for it. I honestly think this picture is fake. 

(I would get more into it, but someone already did. So they’re no point of going over it again. [X])

The boys barely have anytime off just only on holidays. I’m glad that Zayn spend time with his family during Christmas, but I think it was just a little odd that there’s pictures of their families spending Christmas together while we didn’t have picture of the other boys? Not even last year we have pictures of Zayn spending Christmas with his family, why do we suddenly have them when Perrie’s around? Oh, that’s right…publicity. Honestly, I think it wouldn’t hurt for Zayn just to tweet ‘Happy New Years’, but he RT’ed Little Mix’s tweet. (X)

Olympics:

People have been freaking out about Zayn wearing Perrie hat that she wore in ‘Wings’ since he was nervous. Now, we have no proof that Perrie gave it to Zayn because he was nervous, but it did cause attention to Perrie and the video, so of course, people are going to watch the video to see if she’s really wearing the hat.

(Not going to get much into this because someone already covered this topic. [X])

Arriving in New York:

Perrie arriving New York caused a lot of attention because she’s being a ‘supportive girlfriend’. But instead of looking for Zayn and actually spending time with him. She takes a few pictures with fans:

(We all know Perrie was loving the attention she gotten while being in front of the hotel.)

(If you haven’t seen the video for this, I reckon you should. [video])

0:50: “Zayn, what’s going on man?” 

Alright, Zayn completely ignored the guy and continued to open the door so him and Perrie can get inside the store.

0:51: “Hey, Perrie.”

Now, about this. In the background, it has a lot of bickering. If Zayn didn’t reply to the guy, that means Zayn barely heard the guy but Perrie managed to hear the guy say, “Hey Perrie." (But Zayn is such a gentlemen because he held the door open for her.)

(Notice how she’s the only one smiling.)


Madison Square Garden:

(I’m not going to get into this, because someone already got into this. [X])

But let’s talk about this picture shall we? Perrie is on her phone while Zayn is performing on stage. Perrie is on her phone while Zayn is performing on stage. Perrie is on her phone while Zayn is performing on stage. Perrie is on her phone while Zayn is performing on stage. Do you get my point? Or do I have to repeat it once more? 

Zayn at a Little Mix concert:

We all know that Zayn went to Little Mix’s concert because of the rumours of him cheating on her with CJ Webb. So, to show that he’s a supportive and perfect boyfriend, he had visit his ‘girlfriend’ while she’s on Tour:

Which comes with a few articles. (X/X/X)

One Twitter user wrote: ‘Zayn just screamed “Love you Perrie! Love you Little Mix!’ at the LM concert.


Honestly, I doubt that Zayn was screaming ‘Love you Perrie! Love you Little Mix!’ for many reasons.

  1. Do you see how far Zayn is? He’s very far from the crowd, so how can someone possibly hear him scream that?
  2. When you’re at a concert, the music is loud! How can someone hear him screaming on top of the music?
  3. By the looks of pictures, he’s just chilling. Just standing by himself, just standing there.

Perrie at One Direction concerts:

We have seen plenty of pictures of Perrie at the boys concert. She sits in the same spot, just sitting there looking bored. But when she was at the KCA’s she said that she was dancing at the side, with the music. [video] But we once seen her with ear plugs. Why would you want to bring ear plugs to a concert? The whole point of going to a concert is to enjoy the music of the band. She also brought Hatchi with her. (X)

The whole point of this post is to show you that Zerrie is fake and only for publicity of Little Mix. In front of people and cameras, they may look like a perfect couple, but they really aren’t. We can tell that they don’t want to be next to each other or hold each other hands, but they have to. Without Zayn, Little Mix would be no where. In every interview, Perrie is constantly asked about Zayn. We all know that Jesy, Jade, and Leigh-Anne are tired of talking about Zayn.

In front of cameras:

Away from cameras:

Do you see how upset they look? I’m pretty sure if they were really together, they wouldn’t be that far apart and standing with just a big distance. Even if they were caught off guard, they would still hold hands and actually be affectionate. 

For example, Louis and Eleanor:

Danielle and Liam:

Not only aren’t they affectionate with each other. They also show that Zayn doesn’t want to continue on with this stunt. He ignored her at the Brits and haven’t been answering his phone. I can’t prove to you anymore of how Zerrie is fake. Zerrie are only together for the fame of Little Mix.

*This is my opinion, if you don’t like it, well you shouldn’t have read it. If you don’t like what I said, then that’s not my problem. Reblog it as much you but don’t reblog it and comment.*

anonymous asked:

I've grown up in a family that celebrates the Christian holidays, but is very non-religious with them. We never go to church and my family members make religious jokes a lot. But I've found that I have a really strong faith and belief in God and all He does. Do you have any advice for how I can find more ways to incorporate this into my life when I can't yet go to church? Also, do you think He will still accept me when I finally can?

You can go to church. If there’s a will, there’s a way. Choose Him, pursue Him. He’s already pursuing you. He accepts you right this moment and He longs for you. Isn’t that mindblowing? He not only loves you, He longs for you.

Pray. Prayer is a conversation, so pray in the morning, at night, while you drive, while you walk, while you cry, while you smile. Read the scriptures. Seek Him out in all things. Notice the ways in which His love is present in your life and thank Him for it.

it’s kind of crazy how many people unfollow me on social media when i post something indicating that i’m jewish.

i’m not religious at all (i’m actually atheist) but i was raised jewish, and even though i don’t identify as jewish in terms of religion, i still very much consider myself culturally jewish. judaism is a huge part of my family’s culture and heritage. therefore, i celebrate and go to temple on jewish holidays with my family despite not being religious myself. 

i don’t feel like i should even have to explain that to anyone. i feel like i’m going on an annoying rant, but this has been bothering me and i wanted to say something about it because i notice it every time i post something about a jewish holiday. 

i really don’t care about the number of followers i have on any account and i couldn’t care less about people unfollowing me, it just makes me sad that in this case it kind of seems like the reason for it is because of my supposed religion.

sorry for the rant.
