Dean slides the cassette into the deck, grinning when the music starts. He’s got the itch under his skin and he needs to drive, needs to breathe fresh air and see some new trees.

“You ready, Baby?” he whispers, and he swears she purrs back a yes.

Sam comes out of the motel room, looking sleepy and relaxed, blinking into the early morning sunlight. “What are we doing up this early?”

If you haven’t seen Power Rangers you should! We should give this movie the support it deserves. If you’re sick of seeing brooding hetero white men struggle with their powers, this movie is a breath of fresh air. It’s not perfect or incredible by any means, as far as superhero movies go, but the diverse cast and believable performances by these unknown actors pull the whole thing together. Marvel, Disney, DC, etc take note because this stupid little franchise is putting your half ass attempts at being progressive to shame.

Having spent a large amount of time on the dark ground floor, coming upstairs was like a breath of fresh air - both figuratively and literally. The wasn’t even one window, that wasn’t broken and despite it being a cold but windless day outside, wind kept howling through the rooms drowning out all the other noise.

Primum Sanguis Sneek Peak

You’ve been waiting for it (I think?), and here it is! The first sneek peak of my DVD fanfiction. I don’t think the scene require much context. Also, it’s fluff.

Enjoy and let me know what you thought of it :) Also, big thanks to @meridianrose for the editing :)


Her ears were still beating like drums, but the fresh air helped her breathing and made her flushed cheeks cool down. There was always a time when she fled a party, desperate for some calm. The music was nothing more than a faint murmur now, and the chatter had almost entirely faded. She sat on the steps, ignoring their coldness.

The cold weather of the day had prevented anyone from strolling in the gardens. A pity; the bushes were covered in frost, shimmering like gems under the moonlight. But it was all for her eyes, and her eyes only. The thought made her smile.

“Here you are! Signora Fanucci was worried that you vanished on her.”

elitown with 40 in tlou au ?

40 prompts. /  “i’ll keep you safe.”

worrying is second nature. eli is hard pressed to remember when it was anything less. each day that the sun rises, panic begins to gnaw at the back of her mind – when her own life hangs in the balance along with those of her friends, it’s hard to imagine what peace feels like.

ian’s group is a breath of fresh air, to some extent. it’s all run so much more casually – with caddy, you had a cause, and you stuck to it. here, people could relax again. next to no one’s jaw was constantly clenched; no one was permanently white knuckled. it was nice.

“i don’t want to go back,” eli had told luke one night, when the air seemed too heavy for her lungs and she was tired of carrying the secret around. the words are each weights taken from anxious stomach and dragged through anxious teeth – they fall heavily in the tent around them like physical presences. luke hums in response, dispersing the tension and running a hand through her long, loose hair.

“no one’s saying you have to go back.” he kisses her head, sweetly, gently, as to not overwhelm her. he fears that one small part of her, the scared part, the part that can’t meet his eyes, will never trust him. “i don’t want you to go back.”

she rolls over, then, to face him, nose inches away from his chest. “i feel better here. feel better with you. it’s… easier, here. not that it’s ever easy. he could…”

“stop.” smoothly, he pulls her up to look him in the face; he knows she is staring somewhere above his eyes, but he doesn’t mind. she just needs to hear this. “stop that. he can’t do anything to you or any of us. i’ll keep you safe.”

he sounds so sure, and she’s so tired of fighting the feeling of fatigue, that she has no choice but to give in. after all, the world was so strange, now. the feeling of falling in love couldn’t be that different from the feeling of fear.

anonymous asked:

Oh, now that makes sense! Lol. I also wanted to find out if we're both the same age hahaha. For some reason, I'm keen on making a new friend 😅 you seem to be very friendly :)

I don’t know much people who also like yuri (the pains of living in a hetero-dominated realm) that’s why I like having friends here in Tumblr. I’m not really this friendly in real life (not that I don’t try). 😅 Most people say I’m too intimidating so it’s a breath of fresh air when some says I’m being friendly here. 😂 I am up for conversation about yuri so message me anytime. 😉

dalathin  asked:

Send a ❦ and my character will describe what they think it would be like to kiss yours.  If they’ve already kissed, they will describe the experience.

/Fond smile/

Kissing you, ma’len, as cliche as it might sound, is like a breath of fresh air. It is clarity through noise. It is passionate and never without even a subtle meaning. In those moments when we kiss, we are not flesh, but air and color, and light. There is not a day goes by that I do not feel some stab of hunger for your lips, and yet I seem to find nourishment in the very sight of you. At times, chaste and sweet, and reassuring; I know you are with me, and find comfort in being so. And other times, heady and fervent, with a pressure and heat that demands to be felt. You do not know the power you have. I will melt at your every touch, I fear. 

Stop what you are doing. Go outside and breathe. The world will not end if you take ten minutes for yourself.

mp100’s animation was truly unique & iconic and inspired a lot of artists/animators for its appropriate combination of traditional animation + paint-on-glass animation and erratic, wacky shapes and brilliant colors to accentuate the supernatural scenes. it was a breath of fresh air for the genre/medium and i don’t see any other anime deserving of ‘best animation’ in crunchyroll’s anime awards imho

friend: whats so good about jojo lol

me, thinking: jojo’s bizarre adventure is a breath of fresh air. it has an amazing set of characters for each part, and all the characters are believable. the characters are deep and meaningful, and all go through real, human struggles. lots of characters go through some sort of trauma; and lots of them get through it and overcome it. the trauma of these characters isnt used as a plot point, rather a way to show how strong the character is, and how these traumas dont reduce these characters or weaken them. take a look at nearly half of the protagonists of part 5; most of them have dealt with abusive parents. and yet they overcome that, making them strong, independent characters. and they care. they care about eachother and have healthy relationships with one another. they showcase that despite being victims, despite being hurt, they can still be happy, they can still do fantastic things. they arent broken. secondly, none of the characters in any part are shota/lolicon. it is so very common to see some sort of young character in a series to be seen as “moe,” and they often get sexualized, despite being minors. in jojo’s bizarre adventure, however, there is not one minor that is overtly sexualized. i feel that this is important; pedophilia shouldn’t be normalized, and shows in which loli/shotacon is present is harmful. jojo steers clear from that toxic trope. there are scenes where a character who is a minor is in a situation that could be seen as sexual (ie, valentine advancing on lucy,) but that, instead of being portrayed as “hot,” is instead portrayed as creepy and wrong. oh, and the diversity!! there is a character for everyone in jojo. there are so many significant characters of color (muhammad avdol, enrico pucci, sandman, to name a few) and none are stereotyped. there are also openly lgbtq+ characters. in fact, probably the most recognizable character in all of jojo, dio brando, is canonly bisexual. two more characters, gelato and sorbet, are gay!! this is groundbreaking, not only because this wasn’t very common for a manga series in the 80’s-90’s, but because jojo is such a huge thing in japan. to have a series this big have multiple lgbtq+ characters is extraordinary. and the lgbtq+ characters aren’t even there just for fanservice! they are all well-written, thought out characters. there are no tropes for these characters. lastly, jojo has something for everyone. whether you’re into hardcore action animes with a dark mystery surrounding them, or a slice-of-life fan who likes more light-hearted plots, jojo fits everything. even if you arent a fan of really intense action animes, part 2 still brings you in with joseph joestar’s jokester attitude. and if you despise the slice-of-life genre, part 4 has enough mystery and action to make up for it. with spectacular diverse characters who are well thought out, the avoidance of toxic tropes, and the fantastic plot that reels you right in, i feel that jojo might just be one of the best series out there !!

“Everyone who works on this show loves Alex Danvers and wants good things for her and Maggie, so we decided to go for it.”

- Andrew Kreisberg [x]

This. 

This right here is why Supergirl feels like a fresh of breath air in a swamp full of brutally killed beloved characters and constant unearned angst.

They love their characters, and they act like it.

Any writer knows that your favorite characters sometimes have the worst things happen to them, as a result of more attention being paid to them and a storytelling need for obstacles and emotionality in order for the narrative to keep going on. Your favorite character’s psyche is the one you want to explore the most, and you do that by testing their limits and seeing how they respond to obstacles. In general, there needs to be a lot of conflict for the story to stay dramatic and interesting.

However, what many storytellers are forgetting about is ever having any resolutions.

“Conflict, conflict, resolution, conflict” is the method I prefer as a writer. There must always be more conflicts than resolutions, but if you leave out resolutions all together it leaves your characters suicidal and your consumers dread-filled. 

Most shows right now look like “conflict, conflict, conflict, conflict.”

When this style first started happening, viewers latched on. It was new and edgy and exciting because you just had to know what happens next. But viewers are catching on.

What will happen next is simply the worst thing that can happen without destroying the show.

And this formula has made prejudice terribly obvious. When you destroy everything that surrounds your favorite character for the purpose of affecting them psychologically, you reveal who matters to you. You reveal who matters to your story.

And who doesn’t. 

Straight characters matter. White characters matter. Male characters matter. Cis, able bodied, and neurotypical characters, all only going outside the norm enough to be quirky versions of the same thing, matter.

So everyone else is screwed. And the writers don’t even seem to realize that this is what’s happening.

“No one is safe” is a lie. 

No writer kills off the characters that the story is really about.


And then there is Supergirl.

A show that is positive whenever it can be, and in a way that doesn’t sacrifice the real grief at the center of it, but rather creates goodness on behalf of it.

Do you think that other television show writers would have been able to resist killing off Jimmy Olsen when they decided against a Kara x James endgame? Think of the emotional damage it would have done to Kara, the shock of the fans, the headlines: 

“Supergirl Kills Beloved Comic Book Character Jimmy Olsen”

But they didn’t kill him or write him off. They put pen to paper and came up with a new storyline because he is one of the show’s core characters. He matters.

J’onn matters.

He serves as Space Dad to Kara and Alex and helps them out with their storylines, but he also has his own storylines that are driven by his own agency. Most notably, a storyline with a woman of color. Two poc filling the screen in scenes that are about them and only about them.

Alex matters.

It’s no secret that the Danvers sisters are the heart of the show. But what I think the writers realized last season was that Alex’s storylines were too focused on Kara. They wanted to give her her own agency (her own apartment), because, as they said, they love Alex.

And the craziest thing about this is that they showed that Alex matters by making her gay. (What kind of opposite world is this? Important gay characters? A female president? Pretty much everything that we don’t have right now?)

This wasn’t “We need to meet our representation quota, bring one in.” 

This was “Hmmm, how do we make this character we love more important in the story? Alright, get the Gay Gun™, let’s Lesbify this shit.”

I can’t believe I just used ‘gay’ and ‘gun’ together in a positive context

And then, my god, she gets the girl.

It’s not handed to her, but the conflicts are purposefully reflections of real conflicts, rather than convoluted plot points. But- and this is the important part- they have happy endings

Alex’s coming out process is a little awkward and messy, and then she couldn’t be with the girl because of real issues that real lesbians understand. But then then Maggie says ‘screw it, I want to be happy’.

That’s what all of these characters constantly strive for. That’s why the center of the show, Kara, is so bright despite her grief. She chooses to see the best in people, she chooses to fix the problems she encounters. She chooses to be happy. They all do.

And this isn’t happening on some light comedy show that doesn’t need drama. Supergirl is plenty dramatic. Anyone who has had to watch Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh cry on their tv knows how it feels to break your heart over this show.

And they aren’t dealing with easy topics. Incomprehensible grief and racism and heteronormativity and genocide are just some of the topics Supergirl touches on. And they don’t always hit the topics exactly right.

But underneath it all is the message that people are good, everyone matters, and goddammit, good things will happen.

I just feel like… they care. Like Leslie Knope level caring. Like ‘little kids are watching this and we’re going to use this to send them important messages in a positive way while staying true to the characters we’ve written.’

I’m not saying this is exceptional, really. I’m not saying that everything else is like okay but this is wonderful. I’m saying that everything else is terrible and that this is simply… positive. That somehow, because of this mess, it has become comparatively a beacon of hope.

I’m saying that this is what the norm should be. 

I’m telling writers out there to take note, because this isn’t something only Supergirl is capable of.

it really bothers me that people think that once you’re away from the abuse, you’ll instantly start recovering. in the times i had spent away from abuse, i had more panic attacks than i’d ever had before. that was because i was in a safer place to experience the feelings i’d repressed my entire childhood. it, unfortunately, really really doesn’t just stop or get better when you’re out.
