he worries about her like a father does

Yes, maybe Mai did open up a little more for Zuko, so she’s shocked and hurt when Zuko doesn’t return the favor since opening up is hard for her, but…

 Friendly reminder that Mai shut Zuko down every time he opened himself up to her 

 Friendly reminder that Mai mocked Zuko when he tried to confide in her about his emotional abuse

 Friendly reminder that Mai told Zuko that what he worried about didn’t matter and implied he was being ridiculous and that he’d just fuck up anyway

 Friendly reminder that even when Zuko tried to do little things for Mai like give her sweet gifts, she spat them back in his face in mockery 

 Friendly reminder that Mai doesn’t get why Zuko wanted to go against his father even though she knew everything that happened to Zuko and all the Fire Nation does

 Friendly reminder that Mai bosses Zuko around like he’s dog in “The Beach”

Friendly reminder that Zuko has to seek out Mai’s approval to please her in the same fashion that he did with his father because nothing was ever good enough 

Friendly reminder that Zuko and Mai don’t even know each other Friendly reminder that Azula hooked them up to manipulate Zuko

 Friendly reminder that while Mai does not realize she’s shutting down Zuko and invalidating his feelings, that she has been since day one, and that doesn’t excuse it; and despite the fact that Zuko isn’t perfect and fucks up, he NEVER intentionally tried to hurt Mai, in fact, quite the opposite, and Mai is intentionally trying to make Zuko hurt inside!!! 

 Friendly reminder that even though Mai feels comfortable opening up to Zuko, She has made Zuko (probably subconsciously) extremely uncomfortable to open up to Mai! Friendly reminder that Zuko opens up to all of his friends about his problems!!! which means there’s a reason he isn’t opening up to Mai!¡ That’s why it hurts her! She doesn’t know she shuts him down! But, she does!!

  Friendly reminder that this ship is a dysfunctional mess and sucks for all parties involved and maybe bryke actually realized this for once!!!!!!!

  • the most important thing to remember about jack: he thinks about hockey 90% of the time. he has a laser focus on what he needs to do
  • because of this, jack has historically been a terrible boyfriend. it would take a special person to help coax him out of the idea that he needs to live and breathe hockey all the time to prove himself
  • chowder is second generation chinese. his father immigrated when he was a teen and his mother was born in the us. they met at samwell. he has an older sister
  • ngozi has said before that jack is loosely based on sidney crosby, but he’s also based in part on jonathan toews and other intense hockey captains
  • people think lardo is totally cool and perfectly badass all the time, but she has weaknesses, things that she hides. she puts on a mask of being always chill, but she worries about things like looking cool, whether or not someone she likes likes her back. she does have some problems communicating so that’s why, like jack, she befriends outgoing people. she communicates with art
  • no one was managing the team when lardo was abroad in kenya
  • ngozi reminded us that we don’t really know anything about parse (but he will become more important in year four). there is a short storyline about jack’s time in juniors (so parse shows up in flashbacks) in bitty’s junior year
  • bitty has problems with agency and confrontation; he needs to learn to stand up for himself and other people. he is passive aggressive
  • bitty isn’t a good student and isn’t the most responsible person. he procrastinates and doesn’t study
  • being the son of a southern football coach meant bitty grew up as something of a minor celebrity child
  • when jack was born, everyone said ‘oh alicia is a model and bob is a hot hockey player, their child is going to be perfect’ and then jack “oozed” out and everyone was like ‘ooooh… that… did not go as expected’. but then puberty hit and he became a beautiful young man lolol
  • shitty has a huge amount of white guilt and/but will dominate a conversation
  • shitty does not know everything about jack (including, perhaps, his sexuality, whatever that may be…) and would not be that cliche character to orchestrate jack and bitty
  • the team probably has no idea about the thing with jack and bitty - if guys like that see two guys hanging out together a lot, they don’t automatically think “oh they like each other”. they might think bitty has a crush (and maaaaybe think jack is being a bit mean by indulging him with no intention of reciprocation?), but they don’t see where this is going
  • ransom and holster are the bro-trope: they really are the definition of a bromance, with all the implied making fun of two dudes being hetero life partners. humor and serious friend-love
  • chowder is infantilized by bitty, but is also the first person to have a girlfriend (n: “so take that”)
  • jack has dated people; he dated (?? even n says he was cagey about it and weaseled out of the question) camilla collins (who now is captain of the women’s tennis team). it was probably like him saying hi, her suggesting they go out, him saying okay, and her eventually saying “we’re both busy, we should focus on the things we have to do” and him saying “oh, you’re right” and not realizing she was breaking up with him. he might not have even known they were actually dating. he’d walk away going “oh, that was a nice person i knew” 
  • jack on a date: “what are you interested in? how’s your team doing? did they win their last game? what are the weaknesses you’re trying to address?”
  • he would have to date an athlete or someone involved in something consuming; he could, however, be in a successful relationship with someone not into hockey
  • shitty can be very chivalrous if the girl doesn’t mind, but not in a “milady” way, he just really likes taking care of people
ALS

Can you do one with Reid and the reader where the reader has been dating him for a while and is finally ready to tell him about her past. The Reader’s father died from ALS when she was 11. Reid just comforts her and all because she does not like letting people about her father

“Are you sure nothing’s wrong?”

As Spencer’s worried words ricochet in the caverns of your mind, you close your eyes as you draw a deep breath through your nose, setting your spoon back in your soup as you slowly pan your gaze to his.

He immediately dropped his fork before thrusting his hand out to hold yours.

“Y/N,” he breathes, his eyes dancing along your face as you feel your eyes water.

20 years.

It had been 20 years since he had passed, and yet the anniversary of his death is never easier.  It always hurts…it always burns…and it always haunts.

But you couldn’t keep it from Spencer anymore.  He had been so gracious and trusting in letting you in on his mother’s problems, on his fears for his own mind and his own physical conditions as he got older.

It was only right that you returned the favor.

“I should get our check,” he mumbles as his head darts around to find the waitress.

“No no no,” you finally breathe, catching his attention as his eyes dart all along your form.

“Just…just listen,” you ask as you sigh, sinking back into the booth as you close your eyes and bring your fingers to your temple.

“Of course,” he says as he leans forward, hanging onto your every word, “whatever you need.”

Drawing in a deep breath through your nose as your hands drop to your lap, you close your eyes as you feel the words slip from your lips.

“My father died of ALS when I was 11,” you begin.

Spencer ached to hold you…any part of you…during what he would assume would be a painful story.  But he mustered all of the strength he could to stay rooted to his spot as he continued to listen.

“It was awful to watch…a-a-and-”

Swallowing harshly as you close your eyes and let out a hard sigh, you hear a scrambling before the seat dips beside you.

Without a word, you feel his arm slip behind your back, pulling you close to his warm, strong side as you lean your head onto his shoulder.

“Every year around this time is hard.  It’s been 20 years and-…and it never gets any easier, you know?”

Spencer assumed that the anniversary of his death was looming around somewhere close.

“Would you like me to take some time off of work?” he asks lowly before kissing the top of your head.

“No no no, it’s fine,” you breathe.

“I will if you want me to,” he murmurs into your hair.

“Really, it’s alright, I just-”

Spencer felt there was more you were holding back.

“I went and finally had some genetic testing done…” you trail off.

Spencer’s arm automatically tightened around you as he braces for impact.

“Did you know that only about uh, 10% of ALS cases are familial?” you ask.

“No,” Spencer lies, “I didn’t.”

“And did you know that, i-i-if a parent is diagnosed, there’s a 50% chance that they pass on that dominant gene mutation to their children equally?” you breathe as your hands tremble in your lap.

“No,” Spencer lies again as he tries to hold back his own tears, knowing what’s coming, “I didn’t.”

Your silence was an ache in his soul.

“They say the-…the trigger could uh,…be anything,” you breathe as tears finally rise to your eyes.

“Oh, Y/N,” Spencer breathes, wrapping his other arm around you and pulling you into his chest as you begin to lightly cry.

Your body betraying you in your older years was like Spencer’s mind betraying him.  Just like Spencer utilized his mind for his job, your body was yours.  You were a part-time nutritionist at a clinic, as well as a part-time gym teacher at the local elementary school.  And on the days that you had off from the school, during breaks or long weekends, you coached classes at the gym across the street from Spencer’s work.

And he knew how much this revelation had broken you.

“Ssshhh sh sh sh,” he coos as he runs his fingers through your soft, beautiful hair, “it’s alright.”

“What if my body fails me?” you whisper desperately.

“Then you’ll still have me,” he says lowly as he holds you close, blocking everyone’s view of you as you continue to cry into his chest.

“I can’t put something like that on you,” you breathe as you shake your head.

“And just like you told me,” he coos as he takes his hand and lifts your face to meet his, “you don’t get to make that choice.”

And in unison, remembering the first conversation you ever had with Spencer on his mother’s conditions, the two of you weakly smile at each other as the restaurant fades into the background.

“Because we love who we love,” you both say together.

Terajima-sensei tweeted about the reason characters started playing baseball (and others) since yesterday’s afternoon but that time I was helping my major’s event since 8 a.m. till 9 p.m. so I didn’t have much energy left, sorry. orzll

I will write it as summary though.

Why Ryou-san started playing baseball

- Because his father is Yakult-Swallows fan.

Why Eijun started playing baseball

- Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu.

Why Furuya started playing baseball

- He thought because of his grandfather.

Does Kominato brothers’ mother also likes baseball? I think because her husband and sons like baseball so she is likely to say “Nee! don’t think about baseball only and spend time with me too!”…

- He thought she is likely to worry that they will get hurt or not too.

Why Miyuki started playing baseball

- He thought because the children near his home invited him so he decided to go. Later he added that maybe some young man invited him. And because he always did his best so he might get along well with someone who is older.

Why Zono decided to come to Seidou

- Maybe because he followed Azuma-senpai’s route.

Why Tetsu-san decided to come to Seidou

- Because he always watched Seidou baseball club’s practice since he was young.

Why Kuramochi started playing baseball

- He once gave a helping hand and everyone praised him a lot.

Why Chris-senpai started playing baseball

- Because of his father.

Why Jun-san started playing baseball

- He likes baseball pro very much.

I was surprised when I knew Kuramochi-senpai didn’t start playing baseball because of Kazuo. So that means the reason he decided to continue playing baseball is because he knew about Kazuo, right?

- He thought when Kuramochi decided to play seriously, Kazuo’s existence was important to him in that time.

———————————————————————————–

I think that’s all.

If I made a mistake, please tell me like ever. (- -)(_ _)

So I’ve seen a few posts about this scene and the telescope line and here are my thoughts:

Phryne is seriously at a loss in this moment.  She’s overwhelmed by her Father’s return, and she doesn’t really want to care about him, because he has been a terrible Father but she does, and that is what is overwhelming her.

Jack can see that, and just like Phryne (in season two) brought him out of the darkness caused by his past, and returned him to the present, he does that for her here.

He says “Well if it’s all expanding, England will move further away”.  He says this after she expresses her worry over her Father, and he is telling her, in his own little way, that when her Father does go back to England, there he will stay, away from her and away from them, together.  He’s helping her to see that the universe is a huge expanse of things they will never touch, helping her to see that in the scheme of things this situation with her Father won’t matter.

With her reply “But it all looks very still to me.”  She’s telling him, that she can’t separate her past from her present, i.e her childhood and her Father now, it’s too hard for her because it still affects her as a woman.

The telescope line is his weird and cute way of telling her that she can’t control anyone’s actions but her own.  The night sky looks still to her, to anyone standing on the ground but when looking at it through a telescope it is moving and expanding.  Things will always change and she cannot control that.  All she can do is be present in the moment. 

And the great thing about this episode, is the last scene returns us to this conversation.  Phryne tells Jack, “There’s a whole world out there, he’s the least of your worries”, she repeats back to him what he told her when they were looking at the night sky, but in her own way.  Both Phryne and Jack see life in the same way, they just articulate it differently, yet they don’t let those differences interfere with what they have, they let it bind them together in a complicated but equal way.

And now I’m done…too many feels for one post.

Good for You

Around 5 years old, Grace was abducted by Logan and taken out to a farm in the middle of nowhere. No one ever found her and she never managed to run away. Slowly, the he has manipulated her enough and gets her to a point where he doesn’t really have to worry about her running off.

Logan makes her call him Daddy and pretty much makes her servile to him (She helps clean, cooks, and does anything Daddy says). For years Logan just acts like a father but a little too touchy feely (i.e. kisses on the lips instead of the cheek, really long touchy hugs). He keeps her isolated, without any connection to the outside world, home schools her. She stays completely oblivious to everything about sex or body parts.

It is around her fourteenth birthday when Logan decides to make their relationship a bit more sexual. Its only a week after her birthday when he slips into her room one morning completely naked, and gets under the covers with her. his hands reach for her baby hips, her body not quite developed yet “Wake up Gracie, Daddy needs you” he slipped her nightie over her head, leaving the girl in only her pink cotton panties

Kaguya-hime

The adopted daughter of Tsukuyomi, often called Kaguya.

After finding out that he honestly didn’t want a relationship, Tsukuyomi prepared himself to become a hermit, but after visiting a festival, Tsukuyomi found an interesting sight – a girl, bathed in moonlight with pure white hair and red eyes. She looked lost and alone, and while he had no clear idea what to do with her, after talking with her for a bit, he decided to take her back to Takamagahara being he couldn’t very well leave her alone. She was named Kaguya-hime in a court preceding by Amaterasu, and she became a godling over time.

Kaguya is a starry-eyed dreamer of a child. She loves to read, and loves to dream about fantastic adventures that she, herself, could one day have. She isn’t really that sensitive like her father, but she does show signs of internalizing anyone making bad comments about her. This has led to worry on Tsukuyomi’s part, but he hopes she’ll be able to vent her frustrations as time goes on.

Her sacred animal is the Nightingale, and her familiar is Chihiro.

Her birthday is October 10th.

Tainted Red

Around 5-7, Jaimie was abducted by Logan and taken out to a farm in the middle of nowhere. No one ever found her and she never managed to run away. Slowly, the he manipulated her enough and gets her to a point where he doesn’t really have to worry about her running off.

Logan makes her call him Daddy and pretty much makes her servile to him (She helps clean, cooks, and does anything Daddy says). For years he just acts like a father but a little too touchy feely (i.e. kisses on the lips instead of the cheek, really long touchy hugs). He keeps her isolated, without any connection to the outside world, home schools her. She stays completely oblivious to everything about sex or body parts.

Logan had been sexually attracted to younger girls for as long as he could remember, but the kisses and light touches were not enough anymore. He needed more from Jaimie. Her mouth, her hands, her everything.

Its her fourteenth birthday, when Logan creeps into her baby pink bedroom and sits on the edge of her bed. her face so peaceful and serene as she slept. it nealry made his cock hard in his pants. Carressing her face, Logan starts to hum ‘happy birthday.’
