here's a good reason to

She lost all track of time, as she was want to do while in the ocean. By the time she dropped her board off at a pier to be picked up later, she was exhausted and it was already sunset.

In the distance, she could see a lit up beach-side bar. It seemed like a good place for a rest, besides her first day here was a good reason for a drink.

- One strawberita please.

- Sure thing, hon. 

The woman behind the bar smiled at her and began mixing the drink.

- So, are you new around here? I have a pretty good memory for faces and I haven’t seen yours around before.

Therese nodded.

- Yes. I literally just moved here this morning. This place is gorgeous.

- That it is, that it is. I’m Deidra, by the way. And you?

- Therese. Have you lived here long?

Deidra: Oh, yes. My whole life. I’m an islander born and raised. What about you?

Therese: I’m from Bridgeport. But I’ve just bought a house here, so I doubt I’ll be moving elsewhere anytime soon. You guys must be living the dream here.

Deidra chuckles.

- Well, it depends on what you would consider a dream. I love this island, yes, but I admit, I entertained thoughts of moving when I was younger. Although, I’m glad I didn’t - I never would’ve met my hubby then, or had our daughters.

Therese: Oh! That’s lovely. How old are they?

Deidra: They were only born 8 months ago. In fact, I only came back to work last week, but I’m thinking of leaving this job soon. No amount of tips is worth the time with my loves, you know.

Therese: Of course.

About Self-shipping.

     I know this has been said many a time, but I find self-shipping as a harmless thing to do, y’know? I mean, it’s not hurting anybody, physically or mentally (I say nay to cringe culture. I’ll admit, I was a part of cringe culture waaaaay back in 2012, but I grew out of it in 2014-15, said culture is bad for my health, anyway.)

I mean, I can list a dozen of reasons why self-shipping is good, but here’s two:

-It doesn’t affect canon whatsoever (this applies to AUs as well.)

-No ship wars on what ship is canon and which one is not.

     Self-ships are like junk food: we love both of them, and it can’t be helped. Self-shipping is self-shipping, if you love doing it, *breathes in* DO IT. Express your love for your fictional crush, draw some fluff, or maybe write something NSFW (but don’t be a dipwad about your self-ship, like for example, do not put any form of entitlement)! Talk to others about your self-ships, y’all might find common interests! (truth be told, I’m low-key when it comes to actually making self-ship content lol, but I highly support peoples’ self ships!)

((I-I’m sorry, I just wanted to spread some self-insert positivityyyy ; 7 ; ))

Just a reminder that I’m an Adult™ and if that makes you feel uncomfortable feel free to:

  • unfollow me
  • ask me to unfollow you
  • block me

I won’t get mad or anything. It’s important to make sure you feel comfortable and secure.

Not wasting any time, she changed into her swimsuit and headed to the beach. The day was hot and perfect for a swim, although, around here, that was likely the norm. This was, technically, a tropical island and weather was supposed to stay nice and warm year-round. Another good reason to move here.

Also, with so much water around she could swim and surf all she wanted.

She has never felt so free in her life.

anonymous asked:

your Keith post gives me life !!! do you think you could do one for lance too ?

Sure can do! :D I could probably do one for every paladin tbh, I love them all so much. Anyway, here, have some of the reasons why I adore Lance:

  • is flirty
  • it’s a good flirty though??? he only ever compliments people, makes finger guns or talks himself up. nothing gross about it
  • used to sneak out of the garrison regularly
  • the most innocent laughter
  • does the eyebrow thing
  • is a good strategist and confident in his abilities!!
  • befriends people super fast
  • presumably can knit
  • feels insecure about what he contributes to the team despite being confident in his abilities
  • calls Blue “Beautiful” and is very happy with her
  • has the worst jokes
  • and even worser comebacks
  • loves his friends!!!!! so much!!!!!!! he brags about them to other people!!!
  • long limbs,,,,
  • always tries to diffuse tension
  • the more tense the situation, the more annoying he gets (probably in an attempt to distract people)
  • instantly becomes serious when the mission starts
  • is afraid of ghosts
  • can do A+ impressions of other people
  • moves his entire body while handling the controls for the fighting drones
  • he :3
  • knows the altean time measuring units and what they translate to
  • has absolutely no control over the volume and/or pitch of his voice
  • presumably has an exceptionally good relationship with his mom
  • s h a r p s h o o t e r
  • always gives new people the benefit of doubt
  • knows how to thread the needle
  • is bilingual
  • drapes himself across anything
  • is ambidextrous
  • has no understanding or interest in fancy words or math stuff
  • his first reaction to becoming a paladin and ‘protecting the universe’ was shock and fear
  • overlooks the most obvious things and is #shook when he finds out about them
  • is surprisingly analytical and knows how to read people
  • actively uses these skills on his friends - never against them of course, just to get to know them, calm them down or push them to overcome their fears
  • is the biggest dork
  • is afraid of dying
  • but did not hesitate even a second to save Coran from the bomb
  • he’s self-sacrificing that’s what he is
  • and homesick
  • is competitive to the point that he started a rivalry with Keith who barely even knew/remembered him
  • usually becomes useless around pretty girls until they open his eyes and screw him over
  • is so honest about his feelings in a private setting??? but only then
  • makes use of altean clothes
  • missed 10 days for a stomachache in 3rd grade that he never really had
  • is probably really good with kids and animals!!!!!
  • freaks out easily
  • randomly dances sometimes when he’s happy
  • was fully on board with collecting coins from a fountain because Pidge wanted that one video game that he couldn’t care less about
  • loves water!! and the ocean!!! is probably a really amazing swimmer!!!!
  • is the quickest to call shotgun
  • arguably has the best fashion sense
  • puns are good if he makes them,,, but only if he makes them
  • exaggerates most of his movements
  • food goo,,, face masks,,,,,
  • always wrecked the garrison simulator back on earth
  • confronts anyone - no matter how much he looks up to them or wants to impress them - if he thinks that irrational decisions are being made

CONCLUSION: Lance is a good kid!! I love him!!

[lance continuation] [keith] [keith now with additional meta improvement

my hand is officially dead but here is more altean prince iwaizumi + designs :’D

Levi Ackerman: The Abuse Claim

Alright, so here I am with another long ass meta post. Only this time, this one is directed solely at the legend, Levi Ackerman himself. Yet again, I am seeing the “Levi is Abusive” mumbo jumbo and I have spent my two years in this fandom quiet about my opinions on this for the most part because I do not enjoy drama. However, after this last batch of Discourse™ that I have seen, I have been pushed beyond my ability to bite my tongue. 

This is Part One to a two part meta, and this is me basically trying to shine light on Levi’s actions a bit and why he behaves the way he does. In no way do I try to justify all of the shit he carries out so don’t think this is just a fangirl squeal post. I’m simply trying to better explain his character for the people who seem to think he is some kind of rage beast who beats kids for fun in his spare time. 

I will be putting this under a Read More because it is extremely long and also contains spoilers. I’d also like to state that this would be best read from a computer or the mobile website as it contains a metric fuckton of manga panels used for reference (seriously use any other means outside of the mobile app to read this because the app will butcher this post and cut out a majority of the images). If you are sitting down to read this, please make sure you are comfy, cozy, and drinking a nice warm beverage. Now then, 

DISCLAIMER: This is my personal opinion. In no way am I stating what I say here is completely accurate. if you disagree with my opinion, good for you! That’s your prerogative. However, If you are going to send me messages trying to argue points of view with me or send me hate messages because my opinion differs from your own; do us both a favor and just don’t even bother. WARNING: Major spoilers ahead.

First and foremost, this is the scene I see brought up the absolute most so I’d like to go ahead and address it first:
