Eleanor Guthrie Memorial Week
┕ Favourite Quote

I had put so much of myself into this place, in that moment, I honestly didn’t know where I ended and it began. There may be ways of severing oneself in that way… sacrificing one part to save the other. But… in that moment… I honestly couldn’t find something sharp enough to make the cut.

you can fall in love with
many things, with her.

the way that she smiles
when she sees me come in
or how her hair smells like
honey when she uses her
favourite shampoo.

the way that the stress falls
from her shoulders when she
hears the rain tapping on the
window; or how she sings so
beautifully and honestly in the
shower - convinced that no-one
can hear her.

the way that she dances
just for me - or how she kisses
my head as she pulls me closer
and closer to her chest.

and despite all of these,
my favourite thing to love
is the way that she carried
on moving mountains when
others didn’t dare to climb.

i dont actually follow overwatch but sometimes i think about symmetra having a hard time befriending people her own age because of her autism (like me) and she ends up great at connecting with kids

Oh my gosh, yarra, that’s such a friggin cute idea??

I can see one of things she’s really likes about children is how straight forward they are. Especially in the very competitive, corporate circles she tends to move in, interactions are very high stakes, tightly controlled, and nuanced. Satya has studied the communication for a long time – she probably spent more time memorizing facial expressions and tonal shifts than she ever did reading, which came easily to her. She’d get in trouble by the professors at the Academy for reading comics, thinking she was slacking, but the assigned classwork was too easy for her and she was actually using the stylized expressions in the comics to help her learn. So much is left unsaid during “grown up” conversations and she’s constantly on edge for that, so even when she’s not in a business sort of meeting she can find herself getting exhausted very easily. Making friends can be hard for a number of reasons, but definitely a prominent one is the fact that she feels like she can never let her guard down, can never fully trust them not to be secretly mocking or challenging her without her knowing. Even just being able to tell that someone wants to be her friend is baffling – more than once she has walked away from an interaction feeling mournful because she’d thought that person was quite enjoyable but sure that they weren’t interested in pursuing a friendship or relationship, while the other person is also feeling disappointed because apparently this charming intelligent woman wasn’t interested in them after all. Miscommunications are a bitch, and it’s a bitch Satya lives with all the time.

Children are so easy in comparison.  Satya never spent a lot of time with children growing up – she was taken from her family at a young age, and though she did see younger children in the Academy as she climbed through the ranks, she had little to do with them since they were in different classes and dorms than her and her more advanced classes. So the first time she was really forced to interact with a child she was very nervous – how are you supposed to take care of a child?? what if it cries?? do they talk the same, what if it wants to “play” with her?? she had no idea.

So she was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to understand this small human.  They were so emotive, and so honest about what they were thinking.  Satya found it unspeakably refreshing and enjoyable. (And she grows rather offended when people act like their child is inscrutable and bizarre, like an incomprehensible alien rather than a human with their own agency and thoughts – all you have to do is listen.)

And the children really adore her as well!  Satya treats them differently than a lot of adults – she treats them very seriously and honestly, she’s keen to share what she knows and is always happy to learn more – “I will correct my mistakes” is one of my favourite quotes of hers, she is willing to acknowledge when she’s wrong about something and improve. So often I see adults that refuse to admit they’re wrong and that the child who corrected them is right, like it’s somehow a hit on their pride for a ~kid~ to know something better than them, and it’s a really gross way to teach kids who are still excited about learning, it should be encouraged and Satya definitely does that. If the child knows more about a certain subject than her, you can bet your ass she will be interested and accepting of this new information.  And if the child wants to learn things from her?  She can engage them in the “but why” game for ages and honestly quite enjoy herself.  She’ll also sit and listen with absolutely sincerity when the children are talking about whatever they’re interested in… even if she doesn’t get it at all.  She so completely understands being so passionately and wholly in love with something and not being able to talk about it (even in Vishkar, people get glassy eyed and annoyed if she starts trying to talk too excitedly about the complex mechanics and theories of hard-light manipulation) that she will happily sit and let their words wash over her as they tell her about a game, a show, a friend, a toy, a school subject. (Children, she has discovered, tend to be remarkably well-versed in subjects like dinosaurs, space, locomotion, and horses. Fascinating. She had never known so much about construction vehicles before meeting children.)

She might not always understand when someone is subtly trying to signal that they’d like to get drinks with her, but she absolutely understands when a child walks up, takes her hand, and tells her that they want to draw with her.

She’ll draw intricate pictures of castles and pirate ships and towers and cities, with the sort of effortlessness that comes from years and years of training, and then give them to the children she’s with and let them populate the buildings with princesses and heroes and dragons and monsters and heroes and omnics and familes all drawn in crayon over her sharp, neatly inked lines.

Plus, how would a child not be amazed by a lady who can create toys with a wave of her hand?? And she loves seeing children exercising their creative abilities – if they can draw her a “blueprint” (she’ll explain how professionals draw pictures of what things should look like before they’re made) and describe it to her, she’ll make it for them. And if it doesn’t work, if it’s not strong enough to support itself, or won’t move properly, she shows them why it doesn’t work and lets the child try again.  Adults so often underestimate the joy children get by being confronted by puzzles and challenges when they aren’t being graded but Satya understands.

I can imagine one Vishkar dinner.  I sort of feel like Vishkar (the bastards) are always leery about bringing Satya to social functions because they never quite know what sort of impression she’ll make and Vishkar is not the sort of business that likes things to behave with anything less than strict regularity.  But Satya is their prodigy and the head architect of many projects, and it would seem unprofessional of them for her not to be present.  As it happens, Satya isn’t overly fond of these functions either because of the strain that level of noise and bustle put on her as well as the stress from so much socializing, but Vishkar doesn’t give a damn about that, so she learns to cope.

So this one dinner is meant to be a big one hosted by Vishkar during one of the holidays for all sorts of clients and potential clients. It was encouraged to bring family – wives, husbands, and children – because they’re trying to emphasize a sense of warmth and love and community – a sort of yeah we’re totally the good guys, big old wholesome family values sort of corporation, let us bring this into your city with our beautiful designs.  All bullshit, but pretty bullshit.  A beautiful lie.

Anyways, most of the children are mingling in a specific room, “out of the grown-ups’ way” and Satya ends up wandering that way when she feels like she’s about to drown in a sea of mixing, conflicting voices and the increasingly sharp clatter of crystal and silverware. There she finds the children, some interacting with each other, but mostly bored out of their minds, stuffed in tight, fancy clothes and deprived of all forms of entertainment. Their parents brought them for the “look” of things, but they know its all business and has nothing to do with them, they could be in a hotel room watching tv right now.  Satya gravitates into their room, feeling the former tension gradually slide off and the need to stim fade until it was only a background longing rather than a crushing need that must be suppressed before her supervisors and superiors see her.

At the end of the evening, a considerable time after her superiors began to realize it had been a while since they’d seen her around the cocktails, she was found with the children, the room in disarray. All the children are shrieking, laughing – playing.  All of them have little blue hard-light toys.  Satya is there in the middle of it all, finally looking at peace, showing a small group of particularly building-oriented children how to use a projected wire frame to create three-dimensional designs. (Which is everything she wants from an evening – childhood curiosity and ingenuity, her special interest, and the ability to subtly stim with hard-light without being caught out.)

The Vishkar executives are mortified.  To see one of their top agents acting in such a way is unspeakable. Never have they been so embarrassed.

And yet – and yet – Vishkar receives several rather hefty offers of work in the following days.  It seems a number of important executives were impressed by how happy the children were at the end of a long business evening, and were even more impressed by the intricacy of the toys they brought home.  If this level of craft can be achieved on the fly, we look forward to seeing more work done by you in the future, Vishkar is told.  Satya isn’t punished, and she remembers it as being one of the most enjoyable evenings she had had in a very long time.

(She’s still in contact with one of the little girls who had been so intrigued by the wireframe – Satya might recommend her as a candidate for the Academy if her interest holds, and it seems very likely it will.)

Yeah, I dunno, I’m having a lot of feelings about this now. Imagine once she joins Overwatch and after a mission they end up with a bunch of distressed, traumatized children while they try to relocate parents. Everyone’s scrambling, trying to figure out how to calm them down, look for Ana because, hey, she’s a mom, how do you child???? Only to find a moment later that Symmetra of all people has gotten right into the centre of the children’s cluster and they’re all… surprising… calmer. (Everyone on the team is Baffled because they’ve know Symmetra mostly as a very rigid, professional, and cold sort of person, and yet her she seems to be all gentleness and sweetness – they start to realize maybe there’s more to the Vishkar retainer than meets the eye.)  Or heck, even just let her meet Törbjorn’s mob of kids! Give Satya kids!!

and while we’re on the subject, let her meet this child again, give me that angst I need it

ashryvergalanthynius  asked:

Hi! I love your blog, I got Tumblr in hope I would find others who also have an unhealthy obsession with these books. I was wondering if you could recommend any blogs like yours? Thank you!

Thank you so much beautiful!

My favourite book gal friends who have such beautiful souls and I’m so glad I met them and you should follow them because they’re awesome sauce:

@dorianthekinkymf — Bridge and Krish are amazing girls who make the most amazing edits! I talk to them all the time, they are so beautiful and funny and they post the best memes for the fandom!

@readinglikewildfire — Helena is my Elain and loves smut just as much as me! She writes fanfics, makes edits and the best posts that make you laugh. She’s also really active on writing “read along” threads and when she does, it makes you want to read the book she’s reading ASAP.

@lu-cien — If Helena is my Elain, Luna is my Nesta. She’s sassy, fierce and so damn sexy. She also makes AMAZING edits and funny as hell memes for the fandom.

@aqueenpromised — Ines is hands down the cutest girl you will ever meet!! She’ll always have your back against random rude ass anons and is so loyal and squishy and so lovable!!! She posts the best edits and memes for the fandom too!! (even though she’ll probably deny it, don’t listen to her because they are GREAT)

@cassianandfenrysaremyboyos — my girl Lisa is the most beautiful, supportive gal pal ever. She makes the funniest gif posts and memes ever. We always message each other every time we make funny posts just to say what a great post it is!!!! Her content is so original as well ugh they make me like and reblog super quick.

@rowan-buzzard-whitethorn — Sam is a beautiful girl (with the most dirtiest mind.) I want to say she loves to read erotica but she’ll probably bash me for saying that! She also makes the best edits and memes for the fandom, and one of my favourite one from her was her own take on the ACOWAR quote teaser. It’s probably one of the best things made from this fandom.

@highlady-casandra — Casandra makes some of the best fanfic this fandom has ever read. She is a blessing for this fandom! Before I started my blog, I used to just scroll on the ACOTAR tags and I found her fics and LOVED them. When I created my blog a couple months ago, I followed her and she followed me back??? Now we talk??? It’s honestly amazing, and she’s so humble and gorgeous, you must follow her!

@azrielsiphons — And Moe! Back when I only had 20 followers, I was obsessed with Moe’s blog and was so elated when she followed me back! I totally look up to her and think she’s so clever and humble and I love all the posts she makes. She also created the best thing in this fandom: Sin Night™ (and makes the best gif memes and posts!)

Honestly, this whole fandom is a blessing. Everyone here is genuinely so nice and are worth following!!

Little Fox Girls

So I have been hesitant for a while to post this, but a friend’s urging has convinced me I should. A while back, June 19th one of my favourite tumblr poets, Raquel posted this in reply to somebody getting one of her quotes tattooed: i love how this came out and i love you for getting through what you did. honestly every time i hear a story like this, like yours, of a little fox girl who learned her teeth and tail and how to own the night with eyes of fire: it makes my heart sing.
keep shining.

So, I wrote a poem.

We are more than just pretty bodies
We are more than just decorations to be set upon a mantlepiece

We are little fox girls
Who earned the right of their tails
And learned the might of their teeth
And how to own the night with eyes of fire.

We are more than just somebody to throw pet names at
We are more than the countless terms of “babygirl”, “sweet thang” and “hot stuff”

Oh, we’re hot alright
Because we’re burning
Burning this box you have built around us
Sending flames into the sky.

We are not your toys
We are much more than that.
We are not stories,
But We are legends in our own right.

I have always been a lioness,
A wolf with fangs bared,
Cat with claws unsheathed.
I am a dragon with beating wings and pounding heart,
Ready to destroy you with one swing of my tail.

I am a little fox girl,
Trained in the ways of cunning,
Of deception,
And the swift, cruel jaws of death.

I have never been too gentle,
Never soft enough
Or proper enough
To be considered a princess.

Instead,
I am queen.
Fierce ruler of my own kingdom
That I have grown within myself.

And us little fox girls
All over the world
Shall rule on,
Forever strong.

We are little fox girls,
Who learned our teeth and tail,
And how to own the night with eyes of fire,
And our hearts,
they sing.

“I was very well educated. My dad paid me to go to a very good school but, you know, when my parents divorced, we didn’t have any money for a while. My birthday present was my school uniform and my pencil cases. I think that’s one of the reasons why my education means so much to me. It’s because my dad really couldn’t afford to send me to this schoolat the time we just didn’t have the money. And so I worked hard every single day that I was at that school to make him proud of me and for him to know that I appreciated it. And I do, and I still do." — Emma Watson, official Brown University graduate

Honestly my favourite part of Dragon Age Inquisition is still that at one point you have to judge a literal dead duchess stuffed into a box, and one of the options is to sentence her to community service.
And the fact that you can then send the ‘duchess in a box’ on a tour to strike fear into the hearts of those who oppose you.

4/100 days of productivity

Celebrating the end of “the end of semester” exams with my bestie.. It was a really tough session. I was feeling so exhausted and relieved at the same time that it was impossible for me to realise that it’s finally over! It think that everyone has experienced it at least once. 

Honestly, having a cup of coffee with her was so much relaxing. To say how crazy we are, let me tell you we’ve been to 2 different coffee shops ^_^ today. The first one was the “Café des Arts” and the second one “Get Your Mug” which was so cosy and so nicely decorated in a vintage way that it made me feel that I was finally in my world ! 

I think I’ve just found my favourite coffee shop !

Quote of the day : “ ‘Be strong’ I say to my coffee” 

To my BFF : Because of you, I laugh a little harder, cry a little less and smile a lot more. Thank you for always being there.

“Romance is not the sole province of dithering ladies in frilly dresses. It is passion. It is being swept away by the pursuit of an ideal. What is not to like about that?” 
This is one of my favourite quotes from Cassandra tbh. I love how when the Inquisitor teases her about having a romantic heart, she just replies, “Why must that be an accusation?” and honestly I respect her for that. It’s just really nice to have this badass, determined warrior woman who takes no bullshit, who also happens to enjoy cheesy, “terrible and magnificent” smutty literature and wants someone to read silly love poetry to her. 

You and I both know there’s got to be some greater storyline for you than ‘girl gets heart broken, was sad forever’. I think a nice one would be ‘girl gets heart broken, was sad for a while, but in her heartbreak she found freedom, friends, and the ability to look back and laugh at all she’d learned. She now lives her life on her own terms, and still has fantastic hair’

If you think it’s natural for people to sacrifice their own lives to save others, surely you understand that sometimes a single death can save many lives.
