follow her mom

.

but yeah the one thing that is still irking me about this revival is like

the theme of the entire show, now, is “you can’t escape your parents’ fate.”

i mean, obviously Rory is following in her mom’s path (unmarried and pregnant with little to no job prospects), Christopher finally joined the family business like they always said he would, Logan is engaged to someone his parents set him up with, Paris lets her kids be raised by a nanny, Jess is in unrequited love with a Gilmore woman. They are literally all following the exact same path their parental figures took and??? That’s really….bleak. None of these kids forged their own life path, they’re all doomed to repeat their parents’ mistakes, and that’s the most despairing, hopeless future you can put on anyone. it’s NOT nostalgic and cute, it’s pessimistic and horrifying.

i draw serious things….i promise…

@hubris-but-no-writing wrote a short fic and i just… *sigh

So, it’s safe to say that I’ve.. had a day.

I’ve had to get used to paparazzi my whole life. This is different. This is like.. everywhere I go. All I want to do is be able to get from my job to my classes, and even now that’s a feat. Those of you who are used to something like this, can you please give me some pointers? I’m going a little bit insane here.

i wanted to draw the hair

So at work today I was assigned to fitting rooms. A customer and her little boy made their way to me and asked to try on some things, and he was so curious about me. I could hear him in the fitting room with mom asking her questions like “mommy is that a boy or girl?” and “Why are his nails painted?” #AbsolutelyPrecious.

Here is what followed as mom and her son left the fitting room…

Cutie pie: Why are your nails painted?
Me: They’re purple, my fav color!
Cutie pie: But you’re a boy?
*Mom* “Son, It’s about personality.”
Me: Exactly! Now you know, purple is my fav color! Whats your fav color?
Cutie Pie: RED! Points down to his red sneakers.

Book review: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

“I didn’t lose three hundred pounds and give up pizza and Oreos just to be shamed in my school cafeteria by this jackass.”

Blurb: Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed “America’s Fattest Teen.” But no one’s taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Following her mom’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby’s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for EVERY POSSIBILITY LIFE HAS TO OFFER. In that moment, I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything.
Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. He’s the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything in new and bad-ass ways, but he can’t understand what’s going on with the inner workings of his brain. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don’t get too close to anyone.
Until he meets Libby. When the two get tangled up in a cruel high school game—which lands them in group counseling and community service—Libby and Jack are both pissed, and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel… . Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours.
[Goodreads]

Review: Everyone can see Libby is overweight. A few years ago they had to break her out of her house. She was Americas fattest teen. Now she’s seventeen and back at high school. Everyone can see popular Jack but they don’t know, because you can’t see, that Jack can’t see them. He isn’t blind, but he is face-blind. Every face is a stranger to him, even his own face. When his friends want to pull a prank on Libby Jack thinks it’s best if he does it himself, because he means her no harm. Instead, he makes a target of her.

Told in dual POVs Jennifer Niven tells the story of two outcasts. Two teens whose struggles run so much deeper than seen on the surface. Libby has an eating disorder. She’s obese. Food became her comfort after her mother’s sudden death. I am recovering from anorexia, another form of an eating disorder, and it surprised me how much I could relate to Libby. Her story was so inspiring, the way she deals with all the hate she got for her weight and how she accepts herself and demands other people to do the same because this is who she is. Jack’s story made me learn something new. I didn’t know about face-blindness and I think I have a pretty good idea now what it means. 

The chapters are very short and not numbered so I just kept reading and reading, forgetting time. Apart from Libby’s weight and Jack’s face-blindless the book also discusses bullying, the importance of friendship, self-acceptance and of course, love. I adored Jack and Libby’s love story. At a certain point there was a little bit too much drama going on, but overall I really enjoyed this book.

SPOILER WARNING



how about an alternate ending where lucy follow her mom footstep ?

what if the gate needed to be opened again? what if they cant get all 12 keys?

what if after the war ended, she only had a few years left to live?

tho i believe the canon lucy will be ok :’D i hope



i had thought of this AU for awhile and i think now is a perfect time to draw it ;)

totally didnt had this idea after watching clannad the after story-cough-

anonymous asked:

Whys the statement about Abel from December? Before he got with S? I doubt she still respect him now but that's just my opinion.

It’s from December because that’s when the shoot/interview took place. While I didn’t post the bts photos of it (they were really lq) we do have photos of them. Things have certainly evolved since then and we don’t know how she feels now so I’m just noting that this shoot is from December 16th so it’s not post-S/A situation feelings. 

I think things have changed though I don’t think Bella is aggressive as I (and probably you and probably a good amount of us) am feeling about it. Not only the S thing, which is sign of something on its own, but her family and him were still following one another and her mom was still leaving supportive comments but in the past couple weeks but followed him after and almost everyone of her friends and fam (certainly most of the closest) have, too. So, I do think things are different but I hope she is staying as zen as that “I don’t wanna burn bridges” quote seems. 

I should put this under a read more, but I won’t… also, I’m not trying to tell anyone what to do or how to thing, but I’m getting angry, and it’s not good for me, and I’m telling you why.

I’m so annoyed by these people claiming that the baby gils is only Robin’s and not Regina’s.

I’m so annoyed with all of you… this fandom was crying for a baby one year ago. Now, just because Regina didn’t carry her, she’s not qualified to be the so desired OQ baby? Give me a break! Of course the birth mother is a despicable human being, but the baby should not be seen as some sort of walking-sin or terrible-reminder of what Zelena did to Robin. If anything, she’s the only good thing coming out of this horrible storyline so far, and I’m sure more goodness will come in the future. And just to let it very clear being a birth mother does not equal to being a mom who wakes up in the dead of the night to change diapers and sooth fevers.

I cannot stand the idea going around that blood family tops the family people choose to have. Many will say that this is not what they are saying, but the message I get is that blood relations are what matter. Fuck that!

And there’s also the bloody idea that Regina is raising someone else’s child… let me get graphic with my wording here: Fuck you if you think a child isn’t worth of love just because she wasn’t born out of her mother’s womb.

And in case any of you forgot it, Henry isn’t related to Regina by blood and I see no one crying indignantly because she should have a son of her own.
