guardian of acceptance

Gamora/Peter wedding headcanons cause I can’t stop thinking of them: 

  • Groot growing tiny flowers and putting them in Gamora’s hair 
  • Groot is Gamora’s tree of honor, Rocket and Drax stand up with Peter
  • Instead of a dress, Gamora wears a light grey suit. No jacket but a vest.
  • Peter’s first instinct is to wear one of the powder blue 70’s tuxes with the huge ruffles but Drax and Rocket stop him. They compromise on letting him have the blue, but no ruffles. Rocket will burn the ruffles if he ever sees them again, Quill. 
  • Peter and Drax argue about whether or not Drax can be shirtless during the wedding. Rocket starts trying to convince Drax to be pantless as well. 
  • Nebula shows up last minute to give Gamora away. She doesn’t stay the whole reception, but enough to show she cares. 
  • The closest Peter comes to crying is during their vows, when Peter says his mom would have loved Gamora. (Although let’s be real Peter is trying not to cry the entire day). 
  • Mantis officiates, she’s about to announce them man and wife and puts her hands on their shoulders, expecting to feel some joy but just starts sobbing uncontrollably and cries “YOU…. ARE SO HAPPY”. She needs a minute to recover 
  • Instead of a cake they have a dessert from Gamora’s planet. The closest thing it can be compared to is a pie or a fruit tart. It was something her parents would only let her have on special occasions 
  • Groot gives a very sweet speech which Rocket translates, trying to stay macho. “I am Groot. I am Groot.” “I can’t say that.” “I am Groot.” “Okay okay. You two have shown us all what love means. Or whatever." 
  • Mantis and Groot have fun dancing together. Groot likes her dress. Groot wants her dress as a cape.
  • Peter surprises Gamora, he was able to track down a picture of her dad holding her as a baby. This is when Gamora finally sheds a few tears.
  • Rocket ends the night by setting off fireworks. They’re beautiful, and Peter has no idea that they’re made up of every ruffled shirt that Rocket could find.

Heian Shaman King-ish? AU 

Cloud was no-named and called after his sword Ame no Murakumo (Heaven’s Cloud) and Sephiroth is named Abe no Seimei (a famous onmyouji in Heian). Cloud’s soul was cursed and couldn’t reincarnate, sealed in an abandoned temple, while Sephiroth was seeking a guardian ghost. Cloud didn’t accept the offer at first, but Sephiroth managed to provoke him and they fought.

“When I was a child I met an incredible man! He was handsome and unique! This man was brave, earnest, powerful. I loved when he looked at me with his lavender hues. I always felt that everything would be alright. He was protective and never let me falter. Even today, centuries after, I can’t forget his visage, his perfume, his presence.

I’m going to get in shape and I’m never going to be fat again.

“I was impotent, fatigued, emotionally depressed,” he said. “I had real health issues that were affecting me in a major way. It’s bad for your heart, your skin, your system, your spirit.

I’m happy to see celebrities talking about this. Sometimes you don’t realize how badly your weight was messing with your body until that weight is gone. 

so about the natm 3 tv promos

as i was falling asleep i was thinking of tablet guardians (as one does) and i remembered the holiday tv promos (more specifically, this one

 and then i realized that lance and tilly were in them 

originally i was confused because “wait why are they in new york" 

but then i realized

its post natm 3 

larry daley is in his night guard uniform

he came back

I have this unwavering feeling that I was left to die on this earth.
If I had a guardian angel, then they have forsaken me.
They slept through alarms,
got me bruised and disarmed.
Losing my footing,
I stumble to a beginning when I was looking for endings.
It was not one of the reasons I planned to stay here,
but it’s a start.
It took me nine more years to realize what was in my heart.
That the blood pumping through my veins was thirty percent ice and the rest, rage.
I rest most days to keep it within.
I don’t want to be a tragedy,
or the ancient Greek Odyssey.
I wanted to be human.
I just wanted to exist without the bloodshed and tears;
wished my checking under the bed was just childhood fearing.
The demon in my head insists this -
that sharpening my teeth like knives is
necessity to growing up and teething.
I wasn’t blessed with the perspective to disagree.
I was born with this life.
And despite how bleeding it makes me internally,
at the end of the day - it’s me.

anonymous asked:

tsuna loses pieces of his memories sometimes

“It’s a product of having your Flames sealed when you were young,” Shamal says, the one time Tsuna can remember (sometimes) asking. “There’s a reason children aren’t supposed to be sealed, even temporarily. It messes with your body, your mind. There’s no cure for what you’re going through.”

Lost memories. Sometimes he forgets people - his Guardians, his mother, his father, his mentor. He’ll know them one minute - could even be talking with them - and the next instant they’re gone from his mind, and he’s confused. Who are these people? What are they talking about?

His Guardians have tried so hard to find a solution. Reborn knows the cost of sealed Flames, knows what Tsuna is dealing with. He doesn’t bother searching for a solution that doesn’t exist. When Tsuna hits one of his patches of forgetfulness, he merely reintroduces himself as Tsuna’s advisor and friend, and patiently guides him back until he recalls enough to suddenly be back.

“I’m sorry,” Tsuna’s whispered, more than once. “I’m so sorry you have to deal with this.”

His Guardians accept no apologies. It’s not his fault. He didn’t want to be sealed. He didn’t ask for it. He didn’t do it to himself. This is him coping with someone else’s stupid decision, and he’s coping well. 

Even Shamal says so. “I’ve seen cases where people completely lose their memories, or they slide so far back they forget everything. Don’t think that this is you doing badly, Tsunayoshi. You’re the best case I’ve seen yet. You might slide back some day, but today you’re fighting. Keep fighting, okay?”

So he slips down and climbs back up, always struggling to keep track of days and weeks and months and names, so many names. He begins to write himself a journal, and stick a bright yellow post-it note on it that says For when I forget myself. Always, when he forgets, his eye is drawn to it. Inevitably, he reads, and is horrified. And inevitably, he wakes again, himself once more.

One day, he will slip. This he knows. But today is not that day. There is work to be done, and the stranger in black is back in front of him again.

“Good morning, Boss,” he greets, and Tsuna reaches for the journal, and flips to the page labeled Reborn.

My Autism isn’t a Tragedy! series.
Fandom: Guardians of the Galaxy

An autistic headcanon written by me, an autistic fanfic author.
You’re welcome to say hi to autistic!Groot on Tumblr. He’s nonverbaltree.


TITLE: Being ~*~* FF.net and AO3 *~*~
SUMMARY: “…different is not less.” What most species call autism is normal neurology for Flora Colossi. Therefore, Groot does not see himself as disabled and thinks the way everyone else experiences the world is weird!
RATING: T due to some violence and Rocket’s potty mouth.
GENRE: Friendship, hurt/comfort, introspective
* * * TRIGGER WARNING: There is mention of abusive ABA-like therapy.

TITLE: Always, Really and Forever ~*~* FF.net and AO3 *~*~
SUMMARY: “Friendship is the most understated form of love.” Groot’s quest to understand love goes awry when Rocket ends up in the hospital because of his out-of-control drinking. Without his social crutch around, Groot suddenly finds himself having to prove his competence again and again.
RATING: M due to descriptions of nudity and Rocket’s potty mouth.
GENRE: Friendship, hurt/comfort, introspective.
* * * TRIGGER WARNING: Emetophobes might be bothered by this. There is mention of abusive ABA-like therapy. Also, Groot has an encounter that might be triggery to sexual assault survivors.

TITLE: Inner Gardens ~*~* FF.net and AO3 *~*~
SUMMARY: “We become what we plant within ourselves.” Something triggers Groot’s memories of Halfworld, which in turn results in uncontrollable self-injurious meltdowns. The side of himself he never wanted anyone other than Rocket to see is about to be laid bare.
RATING: M due to graphic violence and sexual content.
GENRE: Friendship, hurt/comfort, introspective
* * * TRIGGER WARNING: Emetophobes might be bothered by this. Also, there are graphic flashbacks involving ABA-like therapy given by behavior therapists who are physically, emotionally and sexually abusive.

TITLE: Disclosure ~*~* FF.net and AO3 *~*~
SUMMARY: “Limits are not shameful.” Groot sees Quill experience frightening symptoms related to an undisclosed medical condition. Quill asks Groot not to tell anyone about what he saw. Groot, being the selfless sweetheart that he is, goes on a solo journey into the city to retrieve Quill’s medicine because he doesn’t want to spill the secret. In doing so, he comes face to face with his mental and physical limits.
RATING: T due to some swearing.
GENRE: Friendship, hurt/comfort, introspective
* * * TRIGGER WARNING: Vague mention of past ABA-like therapy.


My hope is reading these helps people realize four things:

  • Functioning labels(high functioning/low functioning/mild/severe) are useless
  • It’s important to presume competence
  • Autistic people aren’t tragic burdens
  • Autistic voices matter

I’ll be periodically reposting/reblogging this. Autism acceptance is a thing that needs to happen every day, not just in April. #WalkInRed

StarkQuill Fic: Acceptance

It’s not 100k, but I hope this is what you wanted, Noha. <3

*******

Peter makes it his mission to make Tony smile. 

He’s pretty sure that they were never meant to find Tony, drifting alone in the black of space, no light gleaming behind that golden mask. It was the ship that found him, picking up on the suit’s unique energy signature, perpetuating endlessly through space even though the suit itself had long gone dark and cold. 

Tony only talked about it once. He shrugged and said that he miscalculated how much power he would need to reach his destination. Peter knows that Tony Stark making such a simple math error is about as likely as adding one and one and getting four – but he lets it go. 

For now. 

Instead he focuses on little things like exotic space menus and planets with interesting magnetospheres and atmospheric conditions that put the Earth’s aurorae to shame. He enlists Tony’s help in the never-ending battle against mechanical breakdown and neglect on such a large ship. He orders, teases, cajoles, and stops short of downright begging the other Guardians to make Tony feel accepted; they may never know what happened back on Earth to send Tony fleeing into space again, but he’s here now, and that’s what matters. 

Tony doesn’t say anything, or indicate that he knows what Peter is up to. He doesn’t talk about staying – but he doesn’t talk about going back home, either. And when he modifies the appearance of the repulsor tech in the suit’s chest, making it less of a sun and more like the flame sigil on Peter’s uniform, no one says a word. But later that night, as they lie together in the dark, Peter spreads his fingers over the RT, creating the same shape out of light and shadow.

“I’m glad you’re here,” he says. 

“So am I,” Tony says, and kisses him. 

anonymous asked:

Wait why is in the broom closet controversial? Im not who you just answered, but I saw, and I'm just confused...?

Many LGBT people including me feels like saying “in the broom closet” if you’re not a LGBT+ witch is making it comparable to “coming out of the closet” as gay, trans, pan, bi, etc. which can have way more damage than saying to your parents/guardians that you’re a witch because being a witch is a choice for most, maybe not for everyone but for most of us it is a choice. I’m a witch by choice.

Most parents/guardians would not give a shit about you being a witch and think it’s just a phase and I know more parents/guardians are more accepting of their kids being LGBT+ but there are still those kinds of people who bully and abuse their children, maybe even have them go to conversion therapy if they’re children came out as gay, trans, bi, etc. to them.

And yes, I’m aware witches face discrimination but not as much as LGBT+ in Bible Belts. People there treat LGBT+ way worse than they do witches there.

It’s like Bronies using “coming out as a brony”, it’s just not comparable unless you’re LGBT+. “So In the Woods” is a better analogy for being a witch who has not told their guardians/parents and is straight if that makes sense.

However if my answer didn’t make sense here’s a post that explains it better than I can.

I am an autistic fanfic author, and I’m tired of autism being stigmatized and misrepresented. So here you have a genuine autistic POV via my fanfiction.

Whouffaldi Triad (Doctor Who)  A short trilogy where the Doctor and Clara stop running away from their feelings.

Autism isn’t a Tragedy! (Guardians of the Galaxy)  You won’t see Groot overcoming autism. Nope, you’ll see him overcoming neurotypical/allistic ideals that he has to fit in to be accepted.


What you have here are two very different presentations of the same autism. Yes, the same autism. There are no “different” types of autism that are more “severe” or “mild” than the other. People are not “low functioning” or “high functioning”. Functioning labels are useless, harmful and dehumanizing. Autism is autism, all that is different is some people’s symptoms are more obvious and disabling than others.

What are these stories saying?

Dear allistics: 

Stop comparing us to you.
Stop saying we fall short because we don’t meet your standards of average.
Stop calling us burdens, epidemics and tragedies.
Stop dehumanizing us.
Stop speaking over us.
Stop presuming you know more about autism than autistic people.
Stop abusing us until we look, sound and act like you. 
Stop ignoring our voices.

Everything is awful and I just learned the word “hugcanons” so here we go

Eriana gives the best hugs because she is earnest and enthusiastic and warm

Wei Ning has killed several Guardians who have accepted her offer of orbital hugs. They died happy

Zavala usually wears armor which is not good for hugging but one day he appears in fluffy knit pajamas and hugs each of the Vanguard, gingerly, and presents them with scarves

Toland is awkward and has long arms. He does not know what to do with them. He looks down on people he hugs with a sort of confused scorn

Eris hugs neatly, orderly, she is very small, she is used to burying herself against walls and holding knives. She hisses, not unhappily. She could get used to it
