IDENTITY PORN STEVETONY IS SO GOOD????? any particular reason why it appeals to you? I love the 'Iron Man learning how Steve feels about Tony' part which becomes IM putting down Tony, which Steve doesn't like, then ~drama, but then ~the reveal :D

[in reference to this post]

I’m 1000000000% here for pining and like……….the whole “they love the IDEA of each other but aren’t actually that compatible” sort of tragic love thing? Ultimately, I ship them in the sense that I think they love each other deeply, intensely, eternally, but…….not unconditionally, because there’s so much history and so many complicating factors between them. So like. Tony has always had a complex love/resentment relationship with Captain America, and Steve loves the parts of Tony that manifest as Iron Man, but when it comes down to the two of them as people, they both sort of burn too hot for the other’s safety and comfort, if that makes sense.

Okay but when it comes to fic I am a HUGE SUCKER for those EXACT “secret vs. superhero identity” shenanigans, ahhhhHHHHHHH

Thoughts on a Future Legend

I read them all: the conversation with Sir Paul, the interview with Chelsea, and Gemma’s point of view. Here’s what I have to say: it’s too much and not enough all at the same time. I know so much more, and yet I still have so much more I want to know. I want to know more about why he chose to get tattoos in the first place. I want to know more about what made him audition for X Factor. I want to know how he perceives his charisma. I want to know what he wants from his future career and what he feels he’s already achieved. I want to know his struggles. I want to read Anne’s point of view. I want to know so much more. I want to verify for myself whether he’s an introvert, an extrovert, or ambivert. I’ve read arguments for all three in these articles. And still…I’m so fucking proud to know who he has been publicly and who he has been privately. Because he’s one of the “good guys” – one of those people who makes life worth living for others. And I cannot wait to see who he becomes. We are at the beginning stages of the life of a legend, my friends, and who he emerges as next is going to be explosive and better than anything we have ever imagined. The pictures alone tell part of his transformation from long-haired boybander to intermediate geek to movie star and solo artist. I am honestly blown away, and I have to catch my breath whenever I think of what comes next for Harry Edward Styles.

Can we just talk about chubby Alex and how Burr and Bell love his body despite Alex's body image?

This is my shit.

In my mind, Aaron and Bell are both taller than Alex, more broad shouldered with a little more muscle. So when Alex borrows their clothes, they don’t really think anything of it, figuring that Alex just likes to be comfy and they think he looks cute in their clothes; the sleeves long and the material hanging off of him.

But the main reason Alex wears Bell and Aaron’s clothes is cause they make him feel small. When he finally tells them this, that he’s never been 100% comfortable with his body, Bell and Aaron are shocked; Alex always seems so confident. But then they realize how dumb //they’ve// been, remembering times Alex has started to voice his concerns. Small moments where Alex has skipped dessert or not wanted to join Bell and Aaron on their morning jogs, saying he’d just slow them down. Bell and Aaron never thought much about those moments before, never thought Alex was struggling with self image.

So they all sit down together, and Bell and Aaron let Alex voice his insecurities about how he has never been skinny, about how somehow he just feels awkward in his skin or uncomfortable and worries that Bell and Aaron don’t find him attractive. 

Then Bell and Aaron immediately tell Alex that no, of course they find him attractive, they love him, and would love him in any form. But Alex still isn’t convinced, says that he knows they love him, but that doesn’t just magically make his insecurities or doubts disappear. And he tells them that he honestly hates intense work outs, that he doesn’t want to do more than his weekly gym visits, and that he doesn’t want to diet because it’s difficult and to be honest not satisfying at all. He just worries what other people think about him.

Then Bell stands up quickly, grabbing three pieces of paper and three pens. He tells them all to write down what they’re insecure about. Once they’re done, they read them all out loud. Bell doesn’t like his hips and is insecure about the stretch marks on his inner thighs; Aaron doesn’t like his stomach. When Alex hears these, he blurts out that he loves those aspects of Bell and Aaron and then Bell smiles at him, saying that they love all aspects of Alex too.

Alex reads his list, and with each insecurity mentioned, Bell and Aaron lean over to kiss those parts of his body, making all of them laugh when Aaron pulls Alex over so he can kiss the back of his calves. Pretty soon it just turns into a big cuddle pile, and Alex feels a little better about himself.

Over the next few weeks, Bell and Aaron make sure that they tell Alex that he’s beautiful, and even though Alex scrunches up his nose, knowing what they’re doing, he also starts to accept that they mean it. He knows that they’ve //always// found him beautiful, but it’s nice to hear it.

Bell even drags Alex out shopping, saying that new clothes always help him feel better. The first trip doesn’t go well, Alex worrying that clothes don’t fit him right and getting upset when a certain size is too small. The next time they go out, Aaron comes as well, and he brings Herc too, who understands how sizes work and what clothes will hit Alex in the right places. He even offers to tailor things for Alex, explaining to him that a lot of clothing isn’t made to fit most body types, and that certain alterations are usually necessary for anyone who doesn’t fit the “norm” of idealized body types. 

It takes time, but Alex slowly starts to get more comfortable in his skin. He doesn’t feel a need to hide anymore, or a need to change his body. It’s something that he’s come to love, and he’s proud of himself. And of course Bell and Aaron have been there to support him the whole time, and Alex loves them for it. He loves that he has two people who love him for him, no matter what. And they prove that to him all the time, whether it’s by showering his body with kisses or by telling him with words. 

And sometimes telling him with words makes Alex blush more than the kisses. They’ll all be lying in bed wrapped around each other when Aaron will rest his hand on Alex’s stomach, murmuring in his ear how much he loves how soft Alex is. And Bellamy will run his hands up Alex’s thighs, whispering that they drive him crazy when Alex wraps them around him, that he loves being able to grab Alex’s hips and squeeze them.

All of the words make Alex dizzy, but it also lifts him up so much, and even though he still has bad days, he knows that Aaron and Bell will always have words to make him feel better. 

This is your casual reminder that my theory that Nell and Eric have been at it like bunnies the entire time length of the hiatus has not yet been disproved in any way by the first two episodes.

Drunken UConn mac and cheese student arrested for hitting an officer while trying to escape rehab
Luke Gatti, 20, who went on a drunken tirade about jalapeno bacon macaroni and cheese has been arrested for allegedly hitting a female police officer while trying to escape rehab. Gatti was ordered to undergo rehab after the bizarre drunken rant last October, but it does not appear to be going well. He fled the Wellness Resource Center in Boca Raton, Florida, barefoot on May 27, just hours after arriving from a detox center in Fort Lauderdale.
