Being a good friend is always important, and one of the most crucial things we can learn as a human being, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of your own wellbeing. Being friends with someone shouldn’t drain you. You’re allowed to cut unhealthy relationships from your life. You need it to grow

A Woman’s Wish

I wish I lived in a place where I never had to hear the words “bitch” or “cunt” or “whore” escape a man’s lips.

I wish I lived in a place where nobody understood what the phrase “man of the house” meant because nobody could even comprehend the concept of growing up in a patriarchal household.

I wish I lived in a place where women were encouraged to pursue their own interests since childhood, and not taught “you need to choose between makeup, fashion, and whatever has been painted in pink as your only options–if it isn’t pink, it isn’t for you”.

I wish I lived in a place where a man would never consider forcing or coercing a woman in to sex because men did not feel entitled to sex from women and respected women’s comfort and true consent.

I wish I lived in a place where nobody believed that women’s and men’s brains were somehow different and that women were naturally suited to an inferior role because of our “nurturing” brains that don’t understand manly science. I wish I lived in a place that recognized that men and women’s brains aren’t really that different.

I wish I lived in a place where young girls were not taught since childhood that the ultimate goal of their lives is to be a mommy and to marry a man. I wish young girls never had to hear the phrase, “what would your future husband think?” as if their decisions about their own lives should be shaped by some hypothetical male.

Friendlier reminder: You're Welcome vs. Maui's Backstory. In You're Welcome he refers to the humans as "you" when speaking to Moana. When he's talking to her about his backstory, he calls the humans "them". He sees her as more.

she believed in me; how can i stay, she taught me the way

Oh heck yeah, now this is a friendly reminder! Much as Maui needs the adoration of humanity, we know he resents them for it, a lot. One of the interesting changes in If I Were the Ocean between the movie and the novelization is that, instead of saying “No, we’re here because the ocean told you you’re special and you believed it,” Maui says “No, we’re here because I keep running when humans call for help.” (Or something along those lines, I don’t have the receipts on me right now.)

Anyway, so Maui doesn’t like humanity. As a whole, he’s just…not a fan. He doesn’t really want to help them and resents them for forgetting him so quickly but he keeps coming back anyway because that’s where he derives his self-confidence from, all those fickle sources of internal validation. Not healthy, Maui. 

But in that conversation, Maui separates them - there’s humanity, who he resents, and Moana, who he doesn’t. While humanity forgot him on that island, too afraid to come look for him, their purported hero, whom they’ve worshipped for  thousands of years, this girl, this tiny mortal girl, comes and finds him and rescues him.

And yeah, she rescues him physically. I mean, she gets him off that sandy rock. But even more than that, she saves him from humanity - she shows him that hey, deriving self-worth from heroic deeds and by extension the human race is a Bad Idea. She saves him physically and, even more important, emotionally.

That’s what makes the distinction. Humanity doesn’t care about him. Moana does. 

The Chemistry of Love

Pt 1

SummaryThere is a chemical formula for LOVE: C8H11NO2+C10H12N2O+C43H66N12O12S2 Dopamine, Serotonin, and Oxytocin, which can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity. 

You didn’t want to feel love, you hated it and you weren’t gonna overdose on it, because to love means to expose oneself, means to be weak. And you didn’t want to be weak; you didn’t want to be weak anymore.

Pairing: Jimin x Reader 

Genre: Angst/Smut/fluff 


A/N: Just right out of the oven, I don’t know If I will continue it but I wanted to give it a try, just tell me what you think about it :) 

Inspired by the picture below lol. 

Sorry if I have any grammar mistakes, English is not my first language 



It was a sunny Friday day of spring as you walked through campus to get to your first class, you loved spring; air turning warmer, nature starting to grow, days becoming longer… but what you hated about it was seeing the “lovely” couples making out in front of everyone, couldn’t they just do that inside closed doors? Losers, they don’t know is just chemicals in their brains you thought to yourself, one day or another one of them is gonna end up with a broken heart because of some shit the other did, telling the other that it didn’t feel the same anymore instead of telling that he/she was fucking someone else. Love didn’t exist.

Your father left your mother when you were just a baby; It destroyed her in ways you can’t even explain. When you are little people tell you that if a boy treats you wrong it because he likes you, so you grow up with this conception in your mind and when you are older you find yourself crying over some fuckboy who threw you in the trash the moment he got what he wanted. And this circle would repeat itself again and again.  You start to feel the need of physical and emotional affection so you run to the first man who will provide you that, the thing is that they only provide you the physical part, you have fun for a while until you start to feel empty again and when you began to ask for some emotional affection they guy runs away. And that is was what happened to your mother endless of times.

You didn’t have a romantic loving relationship you could look up to when you were younger so when you were just a kid you dreamed about finding someone to love and be loved back like it happened in the movies but with the years that dream began to vanish until the point you didn’t believe in love anymore. For you it were just chemicals in your brain, you didn’t want to admit it but you hated the idea of becoming someone like your mother, a clingy sad person who couldn’t live without a man by her side.

You felt bad for thinking that way but the moment you were able to take off from home you didn’t even though about it. You loved your mother but you despised seeing her fall for some man and then end up drunk, crying all over the floor. You tried to help her several times but it just didn’t work, what made her happy was being with a man, not being with you.

With time and experiences you formed the idea that certain people could never be loved. It just is not their destiny; they are not made for that. And you were one of those people.  You’ve always totally refused to believe that it was important, you always tried to convince yourself that it didn’t matter, that one can be happy being alone, that there are just people who are born for that and other people who are not and you were one of the latter. But at the same time, deep down, you hoped that someday it would change.  It’s like everything and everyone around us says that love is the greatest prize that someone can have in this life, as the most beautiful feeling that one can ever feel. But what if … there are people who are not destined for that? What if, you are a person who will never feel that? It annoyed you and terrified you to your bones to think that the only thing that makes us humans feel fully and purely happy is love.

concept: fitzsimmons grow old together, but they don’t explain very much about their past as secret agents which makes them adorable but a little eccentric. 

sometimes at reunions and holidays they’re so cute and in love that they get asked how they met and they start fitzsimmonsing about how they met in school when they were two young prodigies. and how they were clueless lab partners. and fitz will insist he was in love with her the whole time since they met. then Jemma will say it took him long enough to tell her. And he’ll say he had to figure it out first and then work up the courage to actually tell her. but she’ll say he was nothing but brave when he finally did. And then she’ll say it took her a while to realize she loved him back and by then she was scared she’d lost him. and they’re just talking about when they were young and falling in love… and they completely leave out the whole part about being shield agents. 

and whenever they directly reference something they don’t actually give any context. so their kid(s?) and grandkids are constantly confused and bemused at family reunions when Fitz will interrupt Jemma’s story about how “he would have waited around forever” to defend his slowness with, “Well darling, that was after you had just come back to earth, and I was just glad you were alive. I wasn’t gonna ruin that with all those pesky feelings when I had just gotten you back.” and everyone will think, “Wait is that a metaphor? what do you mean, she came back to earth?” and if someone asks Fitz simply says “Oh Jemma took a little trip to space to get out of going to dinner with me.” and Jemma, who doesn’t actually want to explain, just smiles and pats his shoulder or squeezes his hand as if that’s a perfectly acceptable answer and adds under her breath, “You know I would never want to get away from you, dear.”

Then later Fitz will sacrificially give her the last piece of pie “Take it, Jemma.” And Jemma will roll her eyes and say something like, “Oh, Fitz, don’t be so dramatic! It’s not like we’re trapped under the ocean and you’re giving me the last of the oxygen. We can split the pie.” and people will think she’s just a little creative with her expressions. 

Their past becomes an inside joke of sorts. Not really a joke, but something personal that they’ve embraced and learned to live with… but something they’ve almost fictionalized or turned into myth as a way of not flaunting the truth or glorifying the past… and as a way of keeping people from seeing them differently. People might wonder what on earth Fitzsimmons are talking about, but they always dismiss it. At the least they figure it’s all just teasing, at most they figure they had a little bit of a rocky past that they mask with embellishments so they don’t have to talk about it too much.

So people just think they have this made up way of talking to each other because they can’t actually believe any of it’s literal when Fitz says things like “Hey, if I jumped through a hole in the universe twice, I think I can handle this.” 

Also no one knows how Aunt Daisy came to be Aunt Daisy, but they don’t question it. She is mysterious Aunt Daisy who seems like she is always hiding a secret when pops up at gatherings. She gushes and teases and makes awkward jokes then disappears.

After they pass in their sleep together on their 70th anniversary, the truth comes out… they’re honored by shield and all the stories are told and it all makes sense and everyone has to pick their jaws up off the floor.

 LET’S TALK ABOUT THE COLOR MEANING, GUYS.

Yuri is wearing white suit. Meaning of white in Japanese culture: it represents purity and cleanliness in traditional Japanese society, and is seen as a blessed color. Because of the sacred nature of the color, white is the color of weddings and other joyful life events, and appears on the Japanese flag. (Shall I remind you, that women’s wedding dress is white? What’s more, I’ve read somewhere, that in Japan the groom also may wear white suit).

Victor is in black suit: black is a powerful and foreboding color in Japanese culture. Black has also traditionally been a color of formality, and has increasingly come to represent elegance, with the growing popularity of Western conceptions of black tie events. (Men wear black wedding suits).

FLOWERS:
Yuri bouquet reminds me of typical wedding bouquet. (See the photo above in reference). 
Victor is holding blue rose (I guess). Blue represents purity and cleanliness in traditional Japanese culture, largely because of the vast stretches of blue water that surrounds the Japanese islands. As such, blue also represents calmness and stability. It’s also the color of December (Victor’s birthday is December 25th).

IF IT’S NOT A WEDDING PICTURE THEN I DON’T KNOW WHAT THIS IS.

No Pain No Gain

Authors Note: I know these prompts are short and you guys have requsted they be longer, but I just keep going blank. Sorry!! Enjoy my lovelies. Xx


It’s in the hours that you label as ‘dreadful’ that you feel the covers being extracted off of your warm body, the encouragement of Harry’s voice drawing your eyes open while the first ray of sun peeks through the curtains.

“Go away,” you mumble into your pillow, drowsily yanking the covers over your body.
Not even a second later Harry extracts the covers back off you, dragging them to the floor, “I fucking hate you.” You choose a phrase of words that aren’t too pleasant, but you’re not too fond of early morning wake up calls so you feel as though your choice of words is justified. 

“Oi, that’s not nice.” He shakes his head, your hand shielding your eyes from the small ray of light forcing itself in the room, “c'mon my love, up and Adam. We have a workout to complete.” He advocates, benevolently pressing his hand to your exposed thigh, 

“What time is it?” Your tired voice questions, your eyes rubbing the sleep from your exceeding slumberous eyes. 

“Six-thirty, I’ve already been up for an hour. Come on, you can sleep after our workout. Now, up.” He kindly demands with a little hint of dominance to his voice, doing his best to keep in mind that you absolutely despise mornings and can be remarkably sullen when woken up.

Official FC Announcement! We’re ready!

Kasasagi Dojo


About our FC:

Kasasagi Dojo is a progressive, story-driven 18+ roleplaying FC on the Balmung Server of FFXIV. Our FC is centered around Othard RP, plausible lore and story, with a heavy focus on the Shinobi/Samurai culture. The FC will be an Othardian haven focused on revolting against the Garlean Empire, reclaiming Othard, preserving their culture, and hunting void corruptions, while welcoming those who wish to join the cause.

To the public eye, it will be a Traditional Dojo and Shrine. (This will grow to include other concepts once Othard and its lore is made available.)

The shrine will provide a place of respite, Doman food, storytelling, lessons in Othardian teachings, as well as traditional geisha and ritual performances.

The Dojo will be used for in-character training in martial combat, public displays of martial prowess, as well as weekly in-character tournaments that will have quarterly championships of previous victors. The FC will be a place for Shinobi/Samurai who are away from their clans, and masters to find work in Aldenard fit for their skills. This could range from hunting voidal corruption to more behind-closed-doors type of tasks.

Behind Closed Doors: Some tasks require discretion.  Everything from information gathering, assassinations, acquisitions, security, infiltration, and more. While this provides work for our people, their focus will be building knowledge of the Empire. Aldenard has become the training grounds as we prepare to reclaim Othard and destroy the Empire in doing so. (There may also be an underground gambling ring set up for the Dojo’s tournaments. Perhaps more RPC functions to be added in the future.)  

Though there may be tasks and/or jobs that are not necessarily “legal,“ Kasasagi Dojo is not affiliated with any syndicate, and it is not inherently considered to be a criminal organization.

Non-Othardians: Others who seek refuge and work are also welcome to the FC. Healers, storytellers, teachers, academics - there is a place for them as well!

Current Housing: The dojo is current in the Goblet Ward 5 main apartments, apartment 90. We are hoping to obtain FC housing in the near feature.



What we value as an FC:

Respect, Communication, Consideration, and Fun are our core values. We expect a very harsh division between OOC and IC. We will not stand for drama or disrespect of others in any platform, of any degree. Also due to the genre of RP we focus on, we expect that our OOC Rules of Engagement, will be followed by our members, so that everyone who roleplays with us, will have a fun time and fulfilled story.   

It is our hope that we will provide a safe place for those who enjoy writing a good story through RP while allowing for creativity and expression. We also strive to become part of the ever-growing roleplay community, by contributing to stories with other FCs, providing interactive public events, and being walk-up friendly. We are also more than happy to provide players and other FCs with conflict or resolution RP story arcs.

We as an FC also value and respect the player behind the pixels. As adults, we have real life responsibilities and obligations. It is important that anyone looking to join our FC understand that while we are providing a place to RP and story arcs, we expect our members to engage in their own RP stories and encourage them to share their stories with one another. The FC is meant to be a backbone to your character’s story, not consume it.

Let’s write something epic together!

Contact: Mishi Mizuchi, Baien Yatsurugi, or Saya Igarashi

For those who are already in an FC but still want to be apart of the fun! Contact us to be added to our ooc Linkshell! IC linkshell access is opened through RP :D

@the-nerdy-curvy-feminist Honestly I’m pretty mentally exhausted so idk if I’m gonna make much sense lol but. This is something I care a lot about bc it affected me deeply growing up

The concept of intelligence as defined by the education system (which obviously varies from country to country but is pretty similar in general) is even more specific and damaging than the general societal concept of it. It barely measures actual knowledge but instead heavily focuses on judging someone’s intelligence by how many facts they can memorise, how well they can obey the system and the testing format. Things that WILL exclude and harm many disabled and neurodivergent people.

Grades are basically equated with intelligence by default in this system. But basically the entire criteria set up to decide this is created for neurotypical allistic people. Which means neurodivergent behaviours necessarily end up classified as signs of low intelligence when they have zero correlation with someone’s cognitive ability - Things like sensory processing interfering with learning, not being able to pay attention for an entire hour without any other stimulation or sensory input, not being able to learn by repetition, etc.

And when you’re neurodivergent and considered intelligent by teachers and adults, like I was, it will push you to fit a NT standard of intelligence reflected in good grades no matter how harmful it is to pursue it.

I struggled terribly with the education system, but this was dismissed because ‘you’re so smart, you just need to put some effort into it!’ when in reality I could never fit what was expected of me because I was “smart”. I can barely do basic math bc my brain will always struggle with numbers, I can’t sit down and not do anything but pay attention for hours, I just cannot be what the education system defines as being intelligent.

And being taught to put so much value into that one quality, being pushed to chase it and define myself by it, basically ended up with me having a terrible mental breakdown and heavy burn out for an entire year after dropping out of university. What we are taught to value as intelligence and the way we measure it definitely harms disabled and neurodivergent people so much. It’s a fucked up system and a fucked up concept and I hate it tbh

My birthday is in a little less than a month - May 11th - and I have strictly no idea on how to celebrate, except treating myself to nice food and possibly a haircut… I’d like to mark the occasion, but I don’t have much money and absolutely nobody to do anything with offline. Any idea, tumblr?
