he's so hard on himself sometimes

so like I know we’re all super proud of Bitty!!! But I just think it’s amazing that he managed to make that call and I need to reiterate this!!

“You told me to call if I ever…needed you”

like, as someone who has trouble believing their friends care about them, i don’t know if i’d be able to take jack up on that. I’d always be thinking, they just said it to be nice, they don’t really want to hear about my problems, i should just deal with this alone i don’t need to bother anyone else.

Bitty is someone who canonically puts everyone else’s needs ahead of his own, sometimes at his own expense. He’s so used to giving and providing that letting himself believe that it goes both ways can be hard. I mean, he saw that the team got him a new oven (which honestly, was it so much of a surprise? seeing as how reliant that haus is on their oven? and the fact that it was broken like honestly i wouldn’t have been so surprised i think) he sobbed into Jack’s shirt he was so happy and grateful. Because he honestly wasn’t expecting it, he wasn’t at all expecting that the team cared and noticed enough to do something that nice. (i mean, he had no trouble believing Jack forgot his birthday earlier that day). So I bet when Jack said, “Call me whenever you need me,” Bitty’s probably secretly quietly believed he never would (even if he didn’t quite realize it). Or never for anything serious anyway, not about himself. Calling to comfort Jack? Sure. Calling to communicate his own frustrations and needs, while causing Jack inconvenience and possible putting stress on their fragile relationship, just so he can complain about something he could deal with himself? Not so much.

So basically I just am so!! Proud!! And astonished that this is something Bitty managed to do. Even if he didn’t let Jack listen to the message, he’s planning on talking through it with him, he’s not going to let himself be walked over. And this is a really big step. And it’s so great to see.

Did anyone stop to think that maybe Jongin crying has nothing to do with kaistal or kaisoo or anything involving scandals and shit- but maybe, just maybe, because of Jongin’s own inner turmoil and personal insecurities that we don’t know about??

There was something puzzling yet enchanting about admiring him from afar. He made people feel like they knew him, but still kept parts of him to himself. Sometimes, if you got lucky, he would strip himself of his being and parade himself completely to those he cared about the most, almost as if he was reserving those little parts of himself to thank them for being in his life. And of course, they all accepted it because he was a gem and knowing even the smallest detail about his day was something to treasure deeply.

Every single day for the past four years, I observed him closely and watched his every move the best that I could. I had been led to believe that he was perfect, but I also knew that was impossible, so I kept my eyes open to his flaws and neither held them against him nor did I brush them off. But mistakes were rather seldom when it came to him because he carried himself well, and although my heart ached at the thought of him, I also wished he would somehow mess up just to prove to me he was just as human as I was and everyone else.

There was something dangerous in falling in love with someone you know vaguely. No matter how much I wanted to love him completely for who he was, because I only saw parts of him, that was what I fell in love with. I didn’t want to admit it, but there was a tugging bit at the back of my head that sometimes told me I fell in love with the idea of him instead of him as a person. It was absurd to think about, because I was rightfully convinced that I knew him and I could read and understand him better than he could do so himself, but that was what my thoughts fed me.

I knew my intentions were genuine because I never demanded anything from him in return. All I wanted was to absorb every fiber of his being, may it be that he let me or not, and that he continue to be himself.

So now, four years later, I am still here hurting at the thought of him. It was ridiculous, wasn’t it, how someone who is your main source of happiness can have so much control over you that they can also make you feel sadness and pain with their mere existence.

But then it always goes back to one thought, and then everything would be okay again. I was just glad to know that someone like him existed in this world that never really deserved his presence in the first place.

sirius having a hard time with self-worth, which results in playing hard and fast with his own safety. 

sirius picks fights, sometimes loses on purpose. needlessly endangers himself. sleeps too little. drinks too much.

sirius doing these things fully expecting his best friend to throw in the towel eventually because he’s not worth the trouble. hoping james will sooner rather than later so it hurts less.

outsiders looking in on their relationship wondering why james bothers when sirius is just going to keep screwing up. 

james repeatedly proving sirius wrong. he worries. cleans him up. heals the scrapes and broken bones. tells sirius - sorry, but you’re stuck with me, no matter what you do. 

Give me Draco and Harry dancing in the kitchen for no reason as the wireless crackles with static in the background, laughing as their socks slide on the floor and they fall against the kitchen counter breathless from laughing.

Give me Harry and Draco splayed across the couch with Harry completely covering as much of Draco as possible just because he can and Draco pretending to be affronted “honestly potter could you be any heavier” as he buries his face in Harry’s hair to hide his smile.

Give me Draco complaining about everything as they move into their first flat together and Harry’s nerves are shot because God Draco can still be a prat sometimes and Harry had worked so hard to find a place he thought Draco would like but then he overhears Draco muttering to himself “none of this is good enough for Harry” and oh….oh.

Give me bumbling and awkwardness as Harry tries to teach Draco to cook and he wants to learn because damnit if Harry can do it how hard can it be but he also resists because he’s never had to and he doesn’t like to fail so he pretends to hate it. Harry pretends not to notice as ingredients continue to disappear from the pantry but there’s never anything to eat and they end up eating takeaway most nights.

Give me middle of the night when Harry can’t sleep and he tosses and turns relentlessly until Draco huffs and pretends to be annoyed for old times sake but the way his fingers find Harry’s show him otherwise as Draco wraps his arms around him pressing a kiss to the scar on his forehead that still hurts in his heart

Just give me Harry and Draco finally free from Voldemort; free from others expectations and guilt and fear as they find themselves and find each other.

i’m just so proud of dan because he’s so open about some of his problems sometimes and he likes to bash himself a lot all in good spirit i know but he actually does pull through struggles and he works hard and he’s so unintentionally truly inspirational and he’s just a really good human being you know

All done?

Cecil makes those little Self-Care reminder type announcements you see all over tumblr on the Radio.

Sometimes they’re reminders to the town in the face of disaster. “Did you remember to tie down your garbage cans? Remember, it’s garbage CAN fly away, not garbage can’t!”

Sometimes it’s a reminder to himself for things. “Did you remember to lock the door this morning? Yes. Yes? Yes definitely yes.”

Most of the times though, they’re subtly aimed Carlos’s way, because since Cecil found out how sometimes he forgets to eat and drink water and take breaks when at work or even at home, the host was determined to help. So he slips little reminders and prompts into the show. “Have you had a break today? You work so hard. Take a ten minute break to recharge.”

Or “have you had eight cups of water today? Remember, it’s not just a good idea, it’s the law!”

Or even reminders like “have you considered the fact you are incredibly loved by a lot of people today? Not a person, not even just two or three persons, a lot of people. A lot of people care about you and love you immensely, even when they aren’t right there at this moment, even if they don’t say it outright. You are incredibly loved, dear listener. Even you, Steeeeeve Carlsberrrrrg.”

Lance is actually not that oblivious to change if it’s subtle. Pidge’s gender reveal was a surprise because it was so abrupt, but with everything else he takes it in stride and goes with the flow. He comes from a big family so obvious things are changing all the time so he’s used to it.

Which is why when Keith’s skin starts getting purple spots he’s a bit nervous at first because “Is that supposed to happen?” But as the days go on and with no change in Keith besides the slight color change in his appearance he just shrugs it off, accepting it since no one else has said anything, granted the spots are on places like his arms and just under his collar, so it’d be hard to see them.

Sometimes Keith’s eyes will flash yellow, but Lance noticed it’s only during periods of high stress or anger. Which may or may not mostly had to do with Lance himself.

Sometimes Lance will see purple ear tips poke out  from Keith’s hair and he may or may not have thought about how soft they would be.

There was one time where Keith fell asleep sitting, his skin purple and ears poking out (Luckily no one else but Lance was there) so Lance snuck in a few ear rubs and almost woke up Keith laughing when he started purring in his sleep.

Sometimes Keith will start keening if he’s having a nightmare and LAnce will rub his ears to help him settle.

So it’s kind of a shock for everyone when everyone else finds out during training (The sparring bot landed a pretty hard hit so Keith pretty much tore it apart with his bare claws) and they’re all just surrounding him looking at him with a fear of “What the hell?”

And Lance walks in, takes one look and he’s just like “Huh…the claws are new, when’d you get those.”

Everyone’s looks at him like, “What?!?!?!”

“You knew???”

“I thought everyone did to be honest.”

And during all the commotion Keith is on his knees digging claws into his scalp keening because he doesn’t know what to do this is too much.

And Lance just tells everyone to shut up(excuse my language princess) and walks over and hugs him to his chest rubbing at his ears and Keith calms down because it’s familiar and helps and he’ll never admit it but it feels nice to have Lance’s scent around him, the idiot whispering reassurances in his ear in Spanish and just holding him.

Lance motions for everyone to leave, that they’ll talk about it later but not now and they just leave the two be.

you know what, luke gives a lot and he tries really hard and i think sometimes people forget he’s not always in a position to come to his own defence, he can’t always explain himself or his life to us and he shouldn’t always be expected to. but he tries and i know a lot of us know what it feels like to try and have that not be enough, to not be able to explain ourselves. imagine that on the scale he deals with shit.

i was thinking (as one does) about law having night terrors and afterward locking himself in the bathroom for hours, both to keep from facing luffy (because he’s ashamed of making luffy’s life so difficult whenever he’s around, of being a burden, of being a wreck) and for the safety of having a locked door between himself and everything else

and luffy gives him space for a while, because luffy’s learned the hard way that sometimes the thing he has to do is Not Act, for all that it’s so hard for him to keep from doing something when someone he cares about is in distress, and then comes to check on him at last

(they spend another hour sitting on either side of the door, after, before law gets himself to get up and unlock it; luffy talks about nothing just so law can know that he’s still there)

HYYH on Stage: Epilogue - Press Conference in Nanjing~[TRANS]

Starting from Rap Monster, can you say what you think about the member to your right? Can you assess him?

RM → JM: Well, can I say that his height is 3 points and weight is 5 points? Jiminie works very hard. We have similar personalities. Many people can’t tell but  We think a lot when we’re alone and have similar thoughts despite having the biggest height difference in the group.

JM → JK: Jungkookie…I still don’t know what kind of person he is. Everyday, he shows a different side of himself. I think he’s a sincere person, but sometimes, I feel that he’s an idiot. He’s still young, so I think he’s the most innocent member. 

JK → JH: Hobi hyung is a hyung that I can learn a lot from. He’s always positive and has a bright personality. Usually, he asks to check and practice the choreography, Since we all have our own things to do, we get tired. So, he’d gather us together and encourage us to keep practicing. 

JH → J: Jin hyung is a member that nags a lot. He has a great personality. Really. He thinks about the members and takes care of us, so I want to say ‘thank you.’ I’d give hyung 100/100. 

J → SG: Suga is…firstly, he has a remarkable passion for music. We share a room together, and he doesn’t usually come home. If you go to the studio, he’s always in his room with the light on. As a member of the same group, I think he’s amazing. He also takes care of the members. When someone is hungry, he tells them to eat bread or something. He really takes care of us. 

SG → V: Taehyungie is always earnest with everything that he does. He takes things seriously and does his best. He has the ability to do well in everything, so I think that he has a promising future. 

V → RM: Firstly, Namjoonie hyung thinks about us the most in the group. For example, if a member is worried about something, he’d contact them to talk about the problem and solve it. Even when I’m tired, I could keep up because we encourage each other. 

(HYYH On Stage: Epilogue - Press Conference in Nanjing)

do u ever just listen to born singer and cry? idk, i think about namjoon’s death threats and how he hasnt let that stop him from doing what he loves to do. i think about how jin is regarded as the untalented, pretty face of the group when in fact he can actually sing. i think about how suga barely gets any sleep bc he’s constantly producing songs that he sometimes doesnt even think are good or good enough. i think about how jhope always tries to make us smile but disregards his own feelings at times even though they’re just as important,and how he tried so hard to learn how to rap so he could fit in with the (at that time) all rap group. i think about all of the body issues jimin has and how he’s starved himself to fit this mold people want him to be, and how much he has practiced singing and dancing for hours upon hours to try to improve even though he’s already amazing. i think about how v almost didn’t even get into bangtan but is so so so grateful that he did and never fails to mention his love and appreciation for the members and armys. i think about how jungkook was only 15 years old (he was, and still is just a kid) when all of this started and how stressful this is for him, to try to live up to this “golden maknae” standard of being good at everything. i think about how much they’ve given up, things as simple as spending time with their family and friends, and getting a good night’s rest. and then i think about how despite all of this, they try so hard to make us happy all the time, no matter what. their music, bangtan bombs, livestreams, tweets, etc. make me so happy and i just really really appreciate everything they do. i hope they’re happy for the rest of their lives and continue to do what they love because they really deserve it

Shaking your head, you waited until Dean was in front of you before grabbing his hand for a handshake, saying, “You are really something, you know that?”

The officer beside you asked, “So, you two really know each other, huh?”

You shot the officer the easy-going smile that had been given to many officers before him. You had been in this situation enough to know it worked on them all. “Who, this joker? I wish I didn’t sometimes.”

Dean slapped you on the shoulder, hard enough to tell you to stop talking in double meanings. He replied, “C’mon, we both know you don’t know what you would do without me.”

The officer eyed you both, but after a moment, said goodbye and excused himself as he walked back to the crime scene.

Once the officer was out of earshot, Dean grinned at you. “A handshake? Really?”

You winked as you began walking back to your car. “I don’t think he would have believed my story if I had given you a wedgie.”

Dean followed, chuckling as he shoved you with his shoulder. “Y/N, it’s been too long.”

i worry a lot that people constantly jumping on gerard for everything he does will cause him to stop being vocal with his support and we will lose like one of the best allies we have,,,i respect and understand trans ppls anger, cause like im trans, but the way ppl went at him for this small mistake was gross. he used a gender neutral pronoun and later corrected himself there are so so many worse things one can do , and its obvious he is constantly trying to educate and improve himself, he even asked laura herself if they pronouns were okay. like he is just human, he will probably slip up sometimes in some area but he clearly tries so hard to be aware of important issues please do not put him on a pedestal that makes it impossible for him to learn,,

Percy Headcannon

• Whenever Percy writes with a pen he breaks it in half
• It’s only because with his dyslexia he has to concentrate on getting the letters in order and sometimes his arm tenses while he focuses and he’s squeezing the pen so hard it pops…
• Annabeth doesn’t let him use her pens anymore because she claims them to be the best pens and he can’t touch them
• When he was in school the teachers knew never to give him a pen because it was always such a mess and hard to clean up
• Though he has been able to clean most of the ink up with his powers because it’s liquid
• The teachers do start to wonder how he never gets any on himself
• Percy always feels bad about breaking the pen, especially if it’s someone else’s
• He tries really hard and sometimes he can use them without splattering ink
• Honestly he just prefers pencils, they can be erased and they suit him
