get lessons

tim drake’s snapchat is 90% him making bruce wayne do normal middle-class american things and filming the results. popular youtube compilations include the one where they’re at denny’s at two in the morning and tim keeps trying to get bruce to order a moon over my hammy just so he’ll have to say it, the one where they’re at disneyworld and bruce gets increasingly frazzled culminating in him actually physically picking up gaston for reasons no one can entirely recall, and everyone’s favorite series “bruce wayne doesn’t understand walmart”

“I need someone… to show me my place in all this…”

Reasons why I love Static

A good hero works well with others

Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was

And it’s not the last time either. You see it here

and here

he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.

He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help

I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.

and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…

Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.

And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.

Static knows when to fight

but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand

and sure, he jokes around

but he also knows how important the work he does is

and he also knows what happens if he messes up

His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.

and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues

they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.

They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.

Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.

Gandalf did you realise that the transition from ranger to King of Gondor was a PRETTY FREAKING BIG ONE

EDIT: guys please stop leaving snide comments trying to educate me on whether or not he was ready, this was just a bit of fun, sheesh. Can’t believe I actually had to say that)

Sometimes you lose people, and there’s just nothing that you can do about it. Sometimes you lose something that you love. Sometimes you’re replaced by someone else and shifted to a not-so-important place in that one confidant’s heart. Sometimes relationships change and you end up feeling a little bit lonely. Sometimes you just aren’t the right fit, you just aren’t the soul that that other person needs.

Ideas that most people derided as ridiculous have produced the best outcomes. Don’t do the obvious thing.

Max does pay attention!

On multiple occasions, David comments on Max actually paying attention to lessons, which means the angry small is probably just feigning disinterest. Most likely because he was forced to go to the camp so he doesn’t want to enjoy it, but overall it is better than being at home with two parents who don’t care. 

 He even made friends and has a place he can relax and just be himself, but the overly optimistic and enthusiastic counselor is making him reflect back on his own life and question how anyone could ever be as happy as him. if anything, it is probably just a tad bit of envy that leads him to trying so hard to break David down. He doesn’t know how to take positivity, so he lashes out. 

Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.

What I’ve learned in 2017:

1. Vibes don’t lie. Trust the energy you’ve been receiving from the people you’re surrounded with.

2. I am an eternal and infinite source. As long as I’m alive there’s always love to give and things to learn.

3. There’s power in speaking words. If you want something say it out loud. Tell yourself and tell the universe.

4. Love exists but only if you speak highly of it in full belief. Love exists because I exist.

5. Sharing a couple of laughs with people doesn’t turn them into friends. Friends just happen.

6. Staying in the same places keeps you limited. There are pieces of you lying in different corners of the world. Home is home but sometimes you need to get out.
