heroes & inspirations

anonymous asked:

Honestly tadashi is such a good brother and friend and son and just an overall human being. If I actually had an tadashi in my life I would actually be productive lol. But since he inspires me so much I just think "what would tadashi do?" Generally, and things seems to work out😌 what about you? Have you got inspired/ motivated by tadashi sometimes? Have a great day btw! xx 😘

I’ve definitely been inspired and motivated by Tadashi before (countless times!) He’s the kind of person who doesn’t give up on something no matter how hard it can be or how long it’ll take to accomplish, so that’s definitely inspired me before. I’ve often thought about the things he’s said like “Look for a new angle” and “You don’t understand this yet, but people need you” and quotes like that can be really motivating. Even his ‘less’ memorable lines such as “You got this” and something as simple as “Breathe” has personally gotten me through rough patches. I know I’ll be continuing to look to him for motivation when I need it :)

“Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone believes in the goodness in people.”

Amajiki is so important. Having a heroic character with anxiety is so important. Having a heroic character who voices his concerns and gets overwhelmingly anxious during hero activity is so important. Having a heroic character who is terrified of dying is so important. Having a heroic character cope with all of this and then show their immense bravery by putting themselves first to take the brunt of an attack is so important. 

Kudos to Rick Riordan

who gave his LGBTQ+ readers a voice through his writing by giving us many different amazing, strong, inspiring characters with different sexual orientations. Bless you Rick!! ♡ ♡ ♡

You do not need to be born a certain way to be able to show strength. You do not need to be a specific person to be able to conquer challenges. You have everything that you need with in you, right at this very moment, regardless of who you are.

“Go on,” the antagonist rasped. Their eyes were intent upon the protagonist’s, their lips startlingly red with blood. Breath panting. “Finish it.”

The protagonist’s hand wavered, head spinning, adrenaline coursing nauseously through their body. 

Some distance away, their allies were starting to approach. 

The antagonist’s expression softened. “Finish it.” They reached up a hand to steady the protagonist on their weapon. “You’ll be a hero, everyone will love you, the world will be yours for the taking. You’ve come so far and grown so much, you’ve fought so hard. You can do it. It’s alright.”

“You want to die?”

“Don’t ask me that. I’d rather it be by your hand than theirs.”

“Plus Ultra!!!!”

Please let my sunshine kid Midoriya brighten up your dash and your day!!!

You’ll never know what you’re capable of until you give yourself the time and the space to get started. Take a step back. Breathe. Start when you’re ready, and be amazed at your abilities.

i love how much jim respects women and deconstructs gender stereotypes and the hyper-masculine hero trope in general

  • he loves cooking and cleaning and taking care of his household, a typically feminine role, not because his mom made him do it–she in fact sucks at cooking and rarely has time to clean–but because Jim just genuinely enjoys doing it.
  • he’s nurturing and compassionate. he enjoys taking care of his mom and best friend. he enjoys getting up early to pack his mom and best friend lunches. jim is shamelessly the Mom FriendTM.
  • his hardworking, single mother is literally his hero and he would do anything for her
  • “i am james lake, son of barbara”
  • the only time he’s ever willingly gotten into a fight with the school bully was when said bully insulted his mom. jim literally knocked him out and delivered the most iconic line: “she’s a doctor actually.”
  • he calls his best friend, toby, out when he mistakenly thinks toby’s insulting another woman, “okay so she’s not your type, you don’t have to be rude about it”
  • also gets fed up with toby when toby tries using ‘winning older girls’ as a reason jim should run for spring fling king
  • the gender roles are reversed between him and his crush, claire
  • she’s bold and confident. she takes the initiative, she asks him out, and its not until he’s sure she’s comfortable that he makes any real advances toward her.
  • claire’s also “the popular girl” but jim doesn’t care about her status. he doesn’t care about popularity. she’s not a prize to be won. he admires her as a person, and an equal.
  • claire’s also sorta “the smart girl” but she’s never just “the info dump” and jim doesn’t view her as such either. he doesn’t depend on her to tell him whats going on, like a lot of other male heroes i can think of.
  • between the two of them claire is more likely to be charging headfirst into the fray while jim is losing hair watching her. claire and toby both probably give jim gray hair by the time he’s 20.
  • jim is not brash and bold. he values safety. he’s constantly thinking about the danger around him. he’s patient. he works hard in training to be prepared for fights ahead of time. he takes his job seriously.
  • he actually reads the book. a lot of male heroes dismiss what the book has to offer, preferring to rely solely on their brawn (or, again, a “smart girl” to tell him what’s up), but jim doesn’t. he actually uses the book along with his combat training.
  • jim’s sensitive too. he literally cries.
  • he’s just really well-balanced?? he doesn’t lean extremely traditionally masculine or traditionally feminine. he likes cooking and taking care of his home, but he’s also into bikes and scooters and baseball. he’s an actual, well rounded person.
  • i can’t think of any one label you could pin him under except maybe “stressed”
  • he is a beautiful boy feminist i love him

feel free to add anything i missed

thehalcyoncalamity  asked:

a villain flirting with the hero 😏

1) “Oh, you’re so golden,” the villain purred. “All I can think is how good you’d look utterly wrecked. Dirtied up.”
The hero swallowed, eyes wide. 


2) “Are you going to put me in handcuffs? Tell me how bad I’ve been? Punish me to the full extent of the law?”
“Stop it.”
“Make me.”


3) “Look at you, all cute and righteous. I love this aesthetic you have going on.”
“I’m not righteous, I’m just right!”
“Of course, I’m still going to have to stop you. A pity really. The way you handled my men was exquisite, but all good things must end as they say. En garde then, hero?”


4) “You don’t have to do this, please,” the hero said. 
“Ah, but when would we ever spend time with each otherwise? I think I’d miss you too much.”
“You can’t be serious.” 
“You’ll never know.” 


5) “All this saving the world, you’re going to make me jealous.” 
“Maybe you should help me then so we can back to our regularly scheduled feuding.”
“Well, only because you’re pretty.” 

... Somehow, Still Talking About This Captain America Shit (Now With Bonus Spider-Man and Agents of SHIELD)

So now Secret Empire has revealed its Shyamalan Twist and given the readers a Good Guy Steve Rogers as well as Hydra Cap, and the kinds of dickbags who, when this whole bullshit began were dismissing people’s complaints with “oh come on, don’t you know how comics works, it’s all going to be put back at the end, blah blah blah…” are crowing I-Told-You-So’s.

But here’s the thing:

Yeah, fucknuts.  We always knew this.
