i didn't know there was a better term for it i am sorry

A Word To The Sherlock Fandom

Over the past two weeks I have read some truly angry pieces by a very upset Sherlock fandom. Usually, I would counter this with lots of Moffat praise and wait for the wave of anger to subside. But this time, it has become a matter of showing respect to the LGBT+ community. So for once, I am going to address the issue before I move on with my usual blogging routine. 

For Those Who Don’t Know What The Anger Is About…

In a nutshell, what it boils down to is that the episode The Final Problem gave its viewers the impression that the show might be over for good. And if that really were the case, it would mean the relationship between Sherlock and John would never have become canon. And the hints that were planted throughout the show would have been all in our heads. 

Now let me start by making my position on the matter clear: I firmly believe in a romantic relationship between Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. I believe in it when watching the BBC series, I believe in it when reading the original books, I believe in it even after having watched The Final Problem. I believe.

I also strongly believe that Gatiss and Moffat have actually read the books and that they cannot possibly have overlooked all the subtext that hints towards a John-Sherlock relationship. And finally, I firmly believe that the writers have every intention to include this relationship in the show, if they get the chance…

I read your post about transphobia of Japan. I identify myself as genderqueer and MtF lesbian. I tried to join the event for lesbians in Tokyo, but they rejected me at the entrance. Because, I have my beautiful beard and my ID says I am biologically male. I was there with my classy black dress, but they didn't think me as woman! This is so transphobic! Also, I think the term lesbian itself is very transphobic. TERF lesbians should go to hell. We need safe space for queer and non-binary in Japan!

i’m really sorry to hear about the shitty experience that you had, anon. sadly, it’s not the first time that i’ve heard of someone having this experience and i suspect that i might even know the event that you tried to go to. it’s incredibly frustrating how a lot of LG(BT) spaces / events in Japan are gendered, binarist, cissexist and / or transphobic…

i respectfully disagree that the word “lesbian” itself is transphobic, however. it’s my personal opinion that people (such as TERFs) are transphobic and transphobic people can and do use words in transphobic ways, but the word “lesbian” in and of itself isn’t transphobic.

having said that, i totally agree with you that TERFs (by they lesbian or not) can and should fuck off.

speaking of safe places for queer and non-binary people in Japan, there’s actually a great event going right now as i type this. it’s called ジェンダーフリーパーティー X (Gender Free Party X). it’s an event specifically made for trans / non-binary people (although anyone is free to attend) that’s held a few times a year in Tokyo. i’ve gone to one of their events in the past and i can’t recommend it enough if you’re a trans / non-binary person in Japan who wants to meet other trans / non-binary people or just be in a non-gendered space where people are conscious and accepting of gender variance.

if by chance you see this in time, perhaps you could even check it out tonight? otherwise, i’m sure another party will be held again in a few months time and perhaps i’ll even see you there? ;) you can keep up on when the next event will be held by following or periodically checking the event’s Twitter, here.

that event aside, it can be really hard to find safe, inclusive spaces / events… there are a few “mix bars” (ミックスバー) in Ni Chome that anyone regardless of gender or sexuality are welcome in, but i can’t think of a particular one off the top of my head to recommend. there are also Xジェンダー (non-binary) / trans specific オフ会 (meetups), but you usually have to find out about them via word of mouth or Twitter. lastly, there are also LGBT cafes in Tokyo like CoCoLo Cafe and Café Lavandería, which are great places to grab a bite to eat, read a book or hangout with friends. Café Lavandería in particular sometimes has great live music with occasional spoken word and other artistic events, but i highly recommend them both if you just want a safe space without the goal of actually meeting new people.

anyway, i totally feel your pain, anon. it really, really pisses me off how gendered, transphobic, cissexist, etc things are here… i keep telling my cis lesbian Japanese friends why going to lesbian events with them makes me uncomfortable because i know i’m literally only allowed through the door based on being misgendered as female– that if i didn’t “”appear female”” to them, they totally would not even let me in– but they don’t seem to understand how upsetting that or the transphobia etc in general is…. there are, of course, lesbians in Japan who aren’t like that and who are accepting of trans / non-binary people, but general awareness of trans / non-binary anything is so poor in Japan to begin with, making finding such people hard… sigh.

hang in there, anon. things are slowly but surely getting better as Xジェンダー / trans people in Japan are slowly but surely creating spaces and events for ourselves to combat the current state of the LG(BT) community in Japan. it takes a lot of time, patience and effort, but i hope you can find safe spaces for yourself in the meantime.

all the best!

edit: ah, one more thing that i only just remembered. i recently found out that Gold Finger, a well-known lesbian bar in Ni Chome, has an “LGBT Karaoke Night” every Friday night where they open up the bar to everyone. i hesitate to mention Gold Finger at all, though, because they have been known to not allow trans women into their bar when it’s a “women only” night or into their monthly parties… chances are high that the event that you were turned away from may have been affiliated with them. that said, it’s an option that exists in a country with so few options at all, so i thought i’d throw it out there with that cautionary tidbit of information for people to decide for themself whether to go or not. there’s also an “FTM Night” on Mondays for those interested in that.

Hello! I'm struggling a little and maybe you can help? I didn't know who to ask. I really like Islam, but I'm Jewish and I've always been told that Islam preaches against Jewish people and there was a tribe of Jewish people that Muhammad

executed. I guess what I want to know is is Islam open to me? Will I be descriminated against? Did Muhammad hate Jewish people? I’m sorry if these are dumb questions. I literally don’t know a single Muslim irl. :( I’m sorry if I offended you at all.

Hello and Salam (Peace) ❤︎ 

I’m very happy you reached out to me! Feel free to always ask me any questions, there should be no worry if they’re ‘dumb’ or not! No need to apologize!

Islam is a mercy for all mankind, it doesn’t matter who or what you are, Islam is for you! I actually know a Jewish revert, if you wanna speak to her lemme know!

1. Islam DOES NOT preach against Jewish people

Islam tells Muslims to be tolerant of all religions and it is not permissible for a Muslim to mock other’s beliefs. We are all from Adam, and from that we must believe in respect of each other.

We believe simply,

“For you is your religion, and for me is mine.” [109:6]

Allah doesn’t not encourage the Prophet (pbuh) to compel people to be Muslims;

And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed - all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers? [10:99]

Islam says no to compulsion in religion;

There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion [2:256]

2. Jews are ‘People of the Book’, who have an honor in Islam

Jews and Christians are People of the Book, meaning that we are all monotheistic and share the same religious principles. The true definition of a Muslim is to submit to God (who is one), and so Jews do this! We honor this highly. In fact, we are allowed to marry Jews and Christians (Quran 5:5).

We are encouraged to recognize our similarities;

“Say O people of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you that we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, lords and patrons other than God. If then they turn back, say: “Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to God’s Will).” [3:64]

We make no distinction between us;

“Say: We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another.” [3:84]

We should not argue with you and only be kind (except with means better) (unless it is self-defense matters)

“And dispute not with People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong and injury.” [29:46]

3. The Prophet (pbuh) treated Jews extremely well

Muhammad (peace be upon him) worked hard to ensure Jews had freedom of religion in Medina, and they did. Jews and Christians and Muslims lived peacefully among each other.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Let it be known, if any one (Muslim) commits injustice, insults, aggravates, mistreats or abuses a person of the People of the Book (protected, by the state or an agreement), he will have to answer me (for his immoral action) on the Day of Judgment.” (Ahmad) 

The Prophet (pbuh) purchased and traded with Jews;

His wife Aisha said: The Prophet (ﷺ) purchased food grains from a Jew on credit and mortgaged his iron armor to him. (Bukhari)

The Prophet was respectful of Jews in many cases - here is another one:

The Prophet (pbuh) was with his companions and saw the funeral passing of a Jew. He stood and his companions asked why? They were like, he’s not a Muslim, why should we care? The Prophet remarked that we are all equal in death. He said, “was he not a human being or did he not have a soul?” (Bukhari)

The Prophet had a Jewish wife - Saffiyah. His other wife once made a rude-ish comment about her, and the Prophet did not like that;

Narrated Anas: said: “It reached Safiyyah that Hafsah said: ‘The daughter of a Jew’ so she wept. Then the Prophet entered upon her while she was crying, so he said: ‘What makes you cry?’ She said: ‘Hafsah said to me that I am the daughter of a Jew.’ So the Prophet said: ‘And you are the daughter of a Prophet, and your uncle is a Prophet, and you are married to a Prophet, so what is she boasting to you about?’ Then he said: ‘Fear Allah, O Hafsah.‘” (Tirmidhi)

The Prophet (pbuh) always said the greeting of Islam to Jews

Narrated Usamah bin Zaid: that the Prophet passed by a gathering in which the Muslims and the Jews were mixed, so he gave the Salam to them. (Tirmidhi)

We can work for Jews (why wouldn’t we, just an example of our good relations exhibited by the Prophet (pbuh))

“Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah: There was a Jew in Medina who used to lend me money up to the season of plucking dates. (Jabir had a piece of land which was on the way to Ruma). That year the land was not promising, so the payment of the debt was delayed one year. The Jew came to me at the time of plucking, but gathered nothing from my land. I asked him to give me one year respite, but he refused. This news reached the Prophet whereupon he said to his companions, “Let us go and ask the Jew for respite for Jabir.” All of them came to me in my garden, and the Prophet started speaking to the Jew, but he Jew said, “O Abu Qasim! I will not grant him respite.” When the Prophet saw the Jew’s attitude, he stood up and walked all around the garden and came again and talked to the Jew, but the Jew refused his request. I got up and brought some ripe fresh dates and put it in front of the Prophet. He ate and then said to me, “Where is your hut, O Jabir?” I informed him, and he said, “Spread out a bed for me in it.” I spread out a bed, and he entered and slept. When he woke up, I brought some dates to him again and he ate of it and then got up and talked to the Jew again, but the Jew again refused his request. Then the Prophet got up for the second time amidst the palm trees loaded with fresh dates, and said, “O Jabir! Pluck dates to repay your debt.” The Jew remained with me while I was plucking the dates, till I paid him all his right, yet there remained extra quantity of dates. So I went out and proceeded till I reached the Prophet and informed him of the good news, whereupon he said, “I testify that I am Allah’s Messenger.” (Bukhari)

This story is cool because the Prophet (pbuh) had the power at that time in Medina to take away his rights in the debt but he never would do that. He always respected all people. That is what Muslims should do as well.

Once a group of Jews were mean to the Prophet, but he didn’t respond mean and even told his wife to not be rude back;

“Narrated `Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) A group of Jews entered upon the Prophet and said, “As-Samu-Alaikum.” (i.e. death be upon you). I understood it and said, “Wa-Alaikum As-Samu wal-la’n. (death and the curse of Allah be Upon you).” Allah’s Messenger said “Be calm, O `Aisha! Allah loves that one should be kind and lenient in all matters.” I said, “O Allah’s Messenger! Haven’t you heard what they (the Jews) have said?” Allah’s Messenger said “I have already told them: Upon you” (Bukhari)

There’s a lot of examples, here’s one where a companion followed the Prophet’s examples and gave some meat as a gift to his neighbor, a Jew;

Abdullah ibn Amr slaughtered a sheep and said: Have you presented a gift from it to my neighbour, the Jew, for I heard the Messenger of Allah say: Gabriel kept on commending the neighbour to me so that I thought he would make an heir?  (Tirmidhi)

BEST STORY:

There was a Jewish woman who didn’t like the Prophet (pbuh) because of Islam, so to be rude she threw garbage at his house. One day, there was no trash and so the Prophet asked where the woman was. He found out she was sick and so he went to visit her and asked if she needed anything.

I could go on but yeah, the Prophet wasn’t antisemitic

4. Banu Qurayza, the tribe you heard of, weren’t executed because they were Jewish.

I prefer you read this to read the full story, but those who broke a pack that ended up hurting Muslims were the ones who were executed. They happened to be Jews, but it wasn’t because they were Jewish that they were killed. He granted many of them safety, but basically they fought back against the Muslims twice so then it was a battle.

5. The Muslims that discriminate against Jews are sinning!!

Islam is for you. Doesn’t matter if you’re Jewish or Hindu or Atheist. Anyone who says otherwise is committing a sin against you and their Lord.

There are many Jewish Muslims and many Muslims who loved Jews, marry Jews, have Jewish family and friends, and fight against antisemitism. They’re following what Islam taught them, those who do not are leaving the teachings of Islam.

If you have any other questions or need clarification, please ask me anything! I hope I made it clear a Jew can be a Muslim ~

xaandiir  asked:

I just listened to Assassins for the first time after your recommendation and it's wonderful!! I adore Sondheim's work. What are your opinions on his other shows?

Omg, this is what I live for! Sharing my love of Sondheim with people is one of my main hobbies. 

My opinions on his other shows boil down to: Sondheim is one of the greatest artistic geniuses of the world and all his shows are remarkable. That being said, I’m not super familiar with Saturday Night, Road Show, or Do I Hear a Waltz? 

Out of Sondheim’s 19 major shows, I have seen 10 live. But there are some shows I know very intimately, even though I’ve never seen a production. Assassins is one of those shows - I know it backwards and forwards but it isn’t done very often and I missed the 2004 revival (my dad thought I was too young for it and I’m still not over it). 

So, because I’m clearly a bit of a Sondheim wonk, I will give everyone a primer on what shows to dive into. Here we go. 

If you already love musical theater, but haven’t delved into Sondheim yet, start with: 

  • Into the Woods
  • Sweeney Todd
  • Gypsy
  • Company

If you love classical music and opera, but haven’t fallen in love with musicals, start with: 

  • A Little Night Music
  • Sweeney Todd
  • Passion

If you’re a huge fan of musicals/film, but the whole “linear storytelling” thing is kind of boring you, check out:  

  • Company
  • Follies
  • Pacific Overtures
  • Assassins

If you make literally any kind of art, start with the greatest reflection on making art:  

  • Sunday in the Park with George

And here are the ones you can watch on film: 

  • West Side Story
  • A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum 
  • Company 
    • (PBS recorded the revival with Raul Esparza - find it on streaming) 
  • A Little Night Music
  • Pacific Overtures 
    • (the original was filmed and broadcast in Japan in the 70s, so it’s still floating around on YouTube) 
  • Sweeney Todd 
    • (there are lots of filmed live versions floating around and I think a DVD of the original production. Please don’t watch the Tim Burton movie if it’s your first time hearing the musical because a) Johnny Depp is a garbage person and b) Helena Bonham Carter was the worst possible choice for Mrs. Lovett in terms of vocal ability) 
  • Sunday in the Park with George 
    • (the original production was filmed) 
  • Into the Woods 
    • (again, don’t watch the movie - Emily Blunt is incredible but the whole show sort of falls apart because of the direction. The original 1988 production was filmed and is so fucking wonderful) 
  • Assassins (JK YOU CAN’T FIND IT ANYWHERE AND IT DRIVES ME CRAZY) 
  • Passion 
    • (the original was filmed and OH MY GOD THIS MUSICAL IS SO GREAT) 

And if you want to watch/listen to MY personal favorites: 

  • Assassins
  • Pacific Overtures
  • Passion
  • Sunday in the Park with George
  • Company 
  • Into the Woods

If you just want to listen to some baller songs from the shows listed here: 

  • West Side Story
    • Something’s Coming” 
    • “Maria” 
    • “Somewhere”
  • Gypsy
    • Everything’s Coming Up Roses” 
    • “Rose’s Turn” 
  • Company
    • “Sorry-Grateful” (UGH. the feelings) 
    • “Another Hundred People” 
    • “Marry Me A Little” (here’s a video of John Barrowman singing it, bc I think you guys will be into that) 
    • “Ladies Who Lunch” (a martini song - as in, pour yourself a martini and put on a shawl and parade around singing this very loudly)
    • “Being Alive” (one of the greatest songs ever written) 
  • Follies
  • A Little Night Music
    • “The Glamorous Life” 
    • “Every Day a Little Death” 
    • “Send in the Clowns” 
    • “The Miller’s Son” 
  • Pacific Overtures
    • “Poems” 
    • “Someone in a Tree” 
    • “Pretty Lady”
  • Sweeney Todd
    • “Poor Thing” 
    • “Pretty Women”
    • “Epiphany”
    • “Johanna (Quartet)”
    • “Not While I’m Around”
  • Merrily We Roll Along
  • Sunday in the Park with George
    • “Sunday in the Park with George” 
    • “Color and Light”
    • “Finishing the Hat” 
    • “Move On”
  • Into the Woods
    • “Giants in the Sky”
    • “Moment in the Woods” 
    • “Your Fault/Last Midnight” 
    • “No More” (which they left out of the film version like IDIOTS) 
    • “No One Is Alone” 
  • Assassins
    • All of it. 
    • Jk, jk, it does work best when you listen to the whole thing though
    • “Gun Song” 
    • “Unworthy of Your Love” 
    • “Another National Anthem/Family/Something Just Broke” 
  • Passion
    • “I Read” 
    • “Is This What You Call Love” 
    • “Loving You” 

But honestly, Assassins and Passion are about as perfect as art ever gets. Each of his shows have their strengths and stand-out moments, but I think I would not be the first person to say that Stephen Sondheim sometimes falters in second acts (and Sondheim faltering is still better than 99% of everyone else’s best). Both Assassins and Passion are 90 minute one act shows that are tight and thorough and expertly constructed. The first act of Sunday in the Park with George is like that as well. 

So go listen and explore and fall in love with this incredible composer! And then pls come talk to me about it. And also @personalinsanitymoment, who I am dragging into this discussion because we have different favorite musicals (because they’re all amazing!!), so I could use his input. 

I would apologize for this extremely long post, but I regret nothing.

“ if you don’t mind me asking but, who are you?” your heart sank when Bucky said that. Bucky continued to look at you still having no clue about who you were.

“you don’t remember me?” you said with teary eyes.

You looked at Steve trying to figure out what had happened to bucky while you were unconscious. 

“ I don't think we have ever met before,” Bucky said “if we did I am sure that I wouldn’t forget someone as beautiful as you,” he said winking at you. 

Bucky was shocked at what he just did. He knew that this wasn't him. He was usually quieter and definitely less flirty. Especially to people he just met but for some reason, he couldn't control himself. It’s like his mouth that a mind of his own. 

When you first walked in the room he couldn’t help but think that he knew you, that you shared some kind of bound, like you were meant for each other. Sure he didn't know who you were but he was desperate to find out.

You couldn’t hold back your tears anymore.

You ran out of the small room Bucky was staying in. You heard your name being called out by Steve, but you paid no attention to it. 

You were running so fast, you didn’t see Tony walking in front you. 

You were knocked out your senses when you bumped into to the man himself with a loud ‘thud’. “Woah Kid you alright? why are you running?”  Tony asked you. 

You lifted your head and looked at Tony with your red puffy eyes and hugged him. He wasn’t much of a hugger but knowing the state that you were in right now he didn’t care. 

“shhh Y/n” he cooed "it will be alright. I know it will" he was your cupping face in his hands. “What happened to him” you managed to say between sniffles. 

Tony sighed “Y/n you need to rest you’ve been injured" 

“N-Nooo,” you said trying to control your sobs. “ I need to know what happened to Bucky and why he doesn't remember me, Tony. I want to know, I deserve to know.” you were now screaming “What happened after the explosion Tony? I remember a wall falling on bucky and then I got hit in the back of my head and everything went black, and now my own boyfriend doesn't even recognize me.” tears were falling from your eyes once again as you remembered the scene that happened earlier with Bucky. 


Tony sighed and wiped the tears from your cheek. “Y/n… I know you deserve to know and you will” Tony looked at you “ but right now you need to rest.” “but Tony I-” you tried to compromise ” No but’s I want you to go take a shower and sleep and then I promise I will tell you what happened to Barnes" You nodded and left. 


Tony was your best friend, he was always there for you whenever you needed him and you were always there for him. Even though he didn’t like Bucky he tried to get along with him for your sake. 


You didn’t know when you fell asleep. 

After you woke up you ran out of your room eager to find Tony.

You looked for Tony around the base but he was nowhere to be seen. So you went to the one place where you were sure that Tony Stark would be. His Lab. 

“Tony” you screamed,  "I  want explanations now". He took off his glasses off and turned towards you. “ come with me” Tony asked as he walked out of the lab and entered the infirmary.  

You were standing behind a glass wall. Through the wall, you could see Bucky talking to Steve and laughing at something he said. 

You couldn’t help but smile at your boyfriend’s cuteness. You loved seeing him smile, you love the way his nose would scrunch up and he how he would have crinkles around his eyes. You loved everything about him. 

“Y/n?” Tony spoke gaining your attention" after we saved both of you and brought you to the infirmary we found out that Bucky got hit on the head “ he explained “how did he hit in the head? A wall fell on him?” you asked him “well we’re guessing that when the wall fell on him it must have hit the back of his head which is why he got diagnosed with a short term memory loss” The black haired man told you. 

“That’s why he doesn’t remember me?” he nodded “ I did some test on him to see if he, you know will go all winter soldier again, and found out that he won’t, but he doesn’t remember the fight between Steve and I but he knows that something happened between us” and  now he  said looking through the glass wall.

“so he remembers everything but me?” you said letting a tear slip not because Bucky doesn’t remember you or your relationship. No, because Bucky went through a lot in the past and now when his life started to get a bit better it just got worse. 

Tony put his arms around your shoulders.

 " it will be alright Y/n,“  he said in a reassuring tone “you need to help him remember stuff that he forgot. Doctor Cho did say that he would regain his memory faster if we help him remember  all the stuff he forgot.”

“you think so?” you said looking at him

“ I know so” you looked at him and smiled. 

“thank you, Tony, for everything” he raised an eyebrow “ I know you don’t really like Bucky, but you’re still helping him. That means a lot to me” Tony kissed your temple “no problem kid, what are friends for” he said against your temple.  

You got out of the room and saw Wanda coming towards you. She gave you a big hug “ hey Y/n, I heard what happened with Bucky and I’m sorry but, I will help you help him remember” she said giving you a warm smile.

“ me too,” said a voice that came from back of you. 

It was Steve, you smiled at both them. 

“C-can I see h-him” you stuttered a bit, your voice hoarse for crying. 

Steve nodded and you went to  Bucky’s room, he was sleeping. He looked so peaceful and innocent while he slept. 

You couldn’t help but place a soft kiss on his forehead. 

As you retreated from the kiss bucky opened his eyes. 

Part 3 nay or yay?
Something about Sappy Nicknames (Bumbleby)

Blake had heard, somewhere, about people sometimes waking up with a sudden start.

On Saturdays, she tended to wake up with a sudden stop.

At least the solution was simple, if prolonged. All Blake had to do to fix things was groan at the indistinct blurs that made up the world until they decided to coalesce into something solid.

Uuuuuuuuurgh.” Like that.

“Woah.” The particularly golden blur at the corner of Blake’s eye spoke up. “You’re not even up and at ‘em and it already sounds like today’s kicking your butt.”

“I hope that’s Yang I’m hearing.” Usually Blake punctuated her sentences with raised eyebrows. Today, sniffles would have to do. “I’d really hate to have get bloodstains on the school’s bedsheets.”

“Aw, I knew our Blake was somewhere beneath all that fluff and grumbles!”

“Sorry, sorry.” Blake sat up as best as she could. She imagined it looked something like a drunken attempt at pitching a tent made of gelatin, but it was what she had to offer. “Hrm. What’s up?”

Yang giggled. Blake didn’t blame her. “Oh, nothing much. Just a little something to turn you from 'mourning’ to 'morning’!”

“… what?”

“Ta-da!” Yang didn’t do things with a flourish. Yang did flourishes with things attached. Pressing the object from behind her back into Blake’s waiting hands was one of those things. “One steaming hot cup of tea – with a spoonful of honey – for all your caffeine-addict needs! Just the thing to get you rising, shining and, dare I say, radiant! Back to your normal Blakey self.”

It was an interesting experience, thinking in ellipses. But Blake didn’t know what else to, for lack of a better term, say.

The cup was lifted to her lips. The heat spread throughout Blake’s body. She sighed, to vent the excess.

This girl was a saint. What else did you call someone who handed you salvation?

“Thank you, angel.”

At that point in time, somewhere in the wide, wide world of Remnant, someone dropped an expensive plate, which shattered into several pieces. Blake could be certain, because the room was suddenly quiet enough for her to hear it.

Apparently, you called them … your platonic friend … angel.

 Frick.

There wasn’t much time to think anything more than that, because Yang was giggling, and it was turning Blake’s heartbeat into a very nervous rollercoaster. “It’s no problem, sweetie-pie!” Blake didn’t even need to look at her to see the smile. “Anything else I can do for you, honeybun?”

Oh. Oh, a challenge.

Well, then.

“If you’re offering, shnookums, I could use an extra pillow.” Blake took another sip of tea. “Maybe a shoulder massage, if my sweetheart is so inclined.”

“Your wish is my command, dearheart!” The pillow appeared behind Blake’s head as if by magic, and the hands appeared on her shoulders as if by divinity. “Anything else you want me to do for you, sugar lump?”

“Mmm.” That was a lower pitch than Blake had intended. Onwards and upwards. “Just keep being yourself, apple of my eye, and we’ll have no problems whatsoever.”

If Yang’s laughter was the sun, her voice was a dainty handkerchief trying to blot out the sky. “Only if you’ll return the favor, darling.”

“Hardly a fair trade, heart’s desire.” Blake wasn’t doing much better disguising her own giggles – they bubbled up even through the sip of tea. “Up against you - bright eyes, shining star, angel in disguise - however am I to compare?”

“Are you kidding me, baby doll?” Yang’s hand ran through Blake’s bedhead without, apparently, much difficulty. “Between this gorgeous hair, that killer bod and your razor-sharp wit, you, temptress, are just about perfect!”

Blake had to stop herself from leaning back into the sensations. And from giggling some more. “You’re too kind, my one and only.”

“Only because you deserve it, buttercup!” Yang grasped Blake’s chin between thumb and forefinger, and turned her head so that they might see eye to eye, and rubbed their noses together, and oh, Dust. “I’m gonna do everything I can to make sure that from now on, your time here is as amazing as you are. Love of my life.”

Much later on, when her thoughts weren’t otherwise occupied, Blake would blame a combination of sleepyheadedness and amethyst eyes for the way her errant lips found their way to Yang’s own.

And then, after that, she’d remember. Like living through it all again.

She’d remember the way her breath and Yang’s own crashed into each other, and then ceased entirely. She’d remember her heart seeming to stop and accelerate at the same time. She’d remember lips that didn’t need to form words to make poetry. She’d remember a taste like honey in the teapot of life.

But most of all, she’d remember what it felt like when Yang kissed her back. In that blessed moment, all the indistinct blurs of the world coalesced into something solid - particularly that golden one in the corner of Blake’s mind.

She was more than awake. She was more than alive. Blake was aware.

Separation, inevitable, happened in gradations – Blake was so desperate to take the moment back with her – and when she opened her eyes, Yang was there and blushing and bright. “So, uh. Wow. Okay.” And smiling. “You win this round, kitten.”

Maybe all Blake really needed was something worth waking up for.

Mother

I always thought it really stupid that the twins apparently only learn who their mother was years after ROTJ, so I fixed it. Shortly after ROTJ (like three days after ROTJ), twinsy stuff, supportive Han, droid shenigans. Leia POV


The celebration is still going on, three days after the battle of Endor, and Leia feels pleasantly buzzed on happiness, victory, relief and the company of the two men with her, her lover and her brother. There’s still a part of her that explodes in giddyness whenever she thinks about it. Luke is her brother, not just her best friend but her actual twin brother. She smiles, and feels Luke smile, too.

They are sitting in the little hut the Ewoks had offered them. It’s not much, and most definitively only temporary, but it has a roof and a door and a couple matts that make for a somewhat comfortable bed. Not that they care all that much, especially in the first two day they’d spend a huge amount of time just sleeping and recovering from everything, as well as telling each other all that had happened.

“Yeah, it’s me.”

He walks in and closes the door. He sees me looking at him by the cabinet.

“Are you okay? You seem quite scared.”

“O-of course I am. I just got kidnapped by you guys.”

He comes closer and bends down on one knee.

“I’m sorry.”

“Huh?” I tilted my head in confusion.

“I’m sorry you’re caught up in this mess. We didn’t want this to happen in the first place. I begged Namjoon to keep you alive. So you should be happy you’re still breathing.” He sits down in front of you, looks down then back to you.

“Taehyung is right, you do get attached easily.” I mumbled.

“What? Taehyung told you that? He’s lying. I’m not weak.”

“Liar.”

“Do you really think I’m desperate over you? Don’t think that way. I just didn’t want to see another girl die from Namjoon’s hands.”

“Namjoon? I’m guessing he’s the leader of your group?”

He nods, “Yeah, he seems like the bad guy here. But, he’s not. He’s just trying to protect us. He’s like a big brother to me. He doesn’t want us to break apart.”

“I see. Jungkook right? C-Can you tell me what’s your group about? Who’s in it? What do you guys do?”

“That’s something you don’t want to know. But since you’re here in our territory, I’ll tell you who’s in it.”

I look at him in which brought me closer to him. My curiosity caught him off guard.

“You really want to know huh?” he asks. I nodded, bringing me right in front of him.

“Well, you know our group leader, Namjoon. He basically controls everything here. He finds out who’s against us and who’s with us. Right now that’s what he’s trying to figure out about you. We have Jin, which is the oldest one in the group, he’s really parent like. Better than what most of us had. Yoongi, he’s a really cold guy. He really wasn’t that type of person that smiles. Once in awhile he does when we’re doing something stupid. Hoseok, he’s the one that figures out where to go to find our targets. He always the happy person in our group. Cheering us up and making us forget what we’re supposed to do sometimes. But he can be a cold person once in awhile, to the point where he can kill someone other than our target. Jimin, I know you just met Jimin a while ago. He’s not a bad guy, he only does that to scare people. But, other than that it’s best for you to stay away from him. He always out drinking, playing around with girls, and getting into fights. He only does that to get rid of the bad times he has had in the past. Most of us had bad pasts, it’s just what it is.”

“How about Taehyung?” I asked.

He scoffs, “What about him?”

“You were going to tell me all the members, but you didn’t tell me about Taehyung.”

“Ah, Taehyung. He’s older than me, but he’s something.”

“What do you mean something?” I ask.

He leans closer to me, less than an inch away from my face. I was getting flustered, not knowing what he was going to do.

“He’s not who you think he is.”

There was a moment of silence, then he leans back.

“He’s only doing this because you remind him of his dead girlfriend.”

“What? D-Dead girlfriend?” I stuttered.

He nods, “She died because of something that happened to her.”

“What happened to her?”

“She…”

Curiosity hits me. I wanted know who she was and what happened to her. Taehyung didn't’ seem like a bad guy. But from what Jungkook said, it may be something different of Taehyung.

“She was raped and murdered.”

My eyes widen as I heard those two terms. Raped. Murdered.

“Before he was in group, he lived with his girlfriend in an apartment. They weren’t really a happy couple. They had fights multiple of times. One day, they had a fight, a huge one. He was very violent towards her. She was as well. They never really had a fight with physical contact, but it was one. The fight got worse, to the point where he actually hit her.”

There was a moment of silence once again. I gripped the bottom of my shirt, enduring what he was saying.

“Do you want me to continue?” he asks.

I nodded.

“Well, after what he did, she left the apartment. Taehyung felt regretful on what he did to her. After what he did and finding out what happened to her, he felt miserable. The police found her body in an alleyway, but they never found out who did it to her.”

He looks at his hand then at me.

“That’s why he saved you that night.”

“Oh. So that’s why, if I didn’t remind him of his girlfriend-”

“He would’ve let you die there. From Namjoon’s hands.”

“But you begged him to keep me alive. Why?” I asked in a questionable tone.

He chuckles, “Like I said, I didn’t want Namjoon to kill another girl.”

“Another girl? So he had killed one before.”

“Yeah.”

“Who was she? Was she someone different? Or was she just a girl that saw you kill-”

“I can’t tell you that. But I’ll tell you one thing.”

I lean in, trying to listen what he was going to say.

“She did exactly what you did in the alleyway.”

“Oh, and I’m guessing she didn’t get out of that alleyway.”

“Correct, you’re smart.” He smiled.

“And guess what Taehyung did to her before she died?”

“W-What?”

He looks at me in the eyes and my body hits and lays onto the ground. Pinning my arms above my head.

“Just like what happened to his dead girlfriend.”

“Jungkook, what are you doing?!” A voice was heard behind him.

He lets go of me and I crawled back behind the cabinet. He looks behind him and smirks. I can see that grin on the side of his face.

“Ah, sorry. I guess I got carried away with her. I was just demonstrating to her something-”

he pauses and looks at me.

“Taehyung.”

He gets up and heads towards Taehyung, “Don’t worry, I didn’t do anything stupid.”

He walks out the room, I see Taehyung with a bag in his hands and walking towards me.

“Are you okay? Did Jungkook hurt you anywhere? I’ll do something about hi-”

“I-I’m fine T-Taehyung.” I stuttered.

“You don’t look too well. Maybe you just didn’t eat yet.”

He opens the bag to see a bunch of food in styrofoam cups and plates. He takes the food out the places onto the ground. You look at the food, stomach growling, you crawled closer to Taehyung. He smiles at you, he takes your hand and puts a fork in it.

“Eat, you’re probably starving.”

I look at the food and places my fork the the cup of ddeokbokki. I places one in my mouth and chewed. The savoring taste made wanting more. I rushed and grabbed the cup and start placing more in my mouth. Chewing fast, adding more and more into my mouth. The heat was burning my tongue a bit, but I didn’t care. I took my spoon and put it in the bowl of plain white rice. I took a spoonful and put it into my mouth.

“Hey, slow down. You’re going to get sick if you eat that fast.”

He was right, it’s only been one day and I’m eating like I haven’t been for months. I hated the fact that I’m looking like a homeless person. I felt so scared. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t eating right now as well. My eyes started to water as I continued on eating. Eating faster, drinking the water faster to get the food faster down to my stomach. I sniffled as I continued on eating. Placing my head buried in my knees once more. Sobbing, scared, figuring out what was going to happen to me.

“Don’t cry. It’s making me feel bad for you.”

He heads closer to me and pulls me by his side. I shiver from his touch, afraid on what he was going to do.

“It’s okay. Just eat.”

I nodded and continued on eating. I forgot who Taehyung was, what Jungkook told me, and why I should fear Taehyung. Taehyung’s hand was gripping on my arm pulling me into his chest. Of course I ignored it. I was too busy with my starving self than focusing on what he was doing. I wiped my tears and continued on. As I was eating I heard the door slam open. I looked to see a tall man with pale pink hair. It wasn’t bright pink, but it wasn’t dark pink as well. It was the same man that had the sharp object to my neck that night.

He storms towards me and grabs a fistful of my hair. Pulling me away from Taehyung, I scream in pain.

I was pulled into a big place. It looked like an abandoned workplace. I was pushed into a chair in the middle of the place. I attempted to get off the chair until he pulls a pocket knife in front of me.

“If you run, this knife will slice your throat and you will slowly yet painfully bleed to death.”

I quieted myself, my eyes started to water.

“Namjoon hyung! What are you doi-”

“Not now Taehyung. She’s going to help us with something.”

I look down to the ground, as I was doing so the man so called Namjoon grabs my chin and examines my face left to right.

“Something very important.”

He smirks and lets go of me.

“Alright boys, grab your weapons.” Namjoon said outloud.

“What are we doing?” Jungkook said with confused face.

“We’re going to take back what’s rightfully ours.”

At least I didn't bring the gun?

“You hang out with however is around the tower. And you write to me, and call me. And read lots of books.” He says as he reaches over you and takes his socks.

“Ugh how come you have to be there the whole time? Nobody else does.” You throw yourself back onto the bed. Steve lays down next to you propping himself up in his elbows and kissing you gently.

                  Oikawa Tooru & Alexander The Great 

So, I wanted to take a moment to talk about this topic for a bit. I know there are several other posts that already analyze the symbolic nature to these two figures but I’m not here to necessarily to do that. There is another wavelength I would like to cover that has recently came to my attention. 

For readers, it is clearly evident to why Furudate would make a reference to Alexander the Great in regards to Oikawa. In terms of leadership and his position of command, Tooru holds great qualities that help him lead his team to victory. When I really took the time to think about it and do a bit of research, I found that you could argue that the reference goes a bit deeper than expected.  

A little history lesson here ( and please correct me if I’m wrong on any of this, I’m no expert really ) but Alexander the Great believed in Greek Polytheism. While this form of religion is very broad and has many different complexities to it, the Greek culture holds values a bit different for their time period. In famous literature, as seen in classics such as The Iliad and The Odyssey, a common theme, and quite heavily enforced, presented throughout was man’s downfall because of pride. 

The Iliad depicts this lesson well, explaining how Achilleas wouldn’t have lost his lover if it had not been for his stubborn pride. Though, in this time period strength and brute force was considered essential in war. Later though, as referenced in The Odyssey, cleverness and the intelligence of outsmarting your enemy is valued more than just physical strength in itself. Odysseus is an intelligent man, coming up with witty ways to escape his enemies but like anything else, his pride puts him in dangerous situations, ones that could have been avoided at best. 

I like to believe Furudate was inspired by the philosophy of the Greek and there was a significance to choosing Alexander the Great from this time period. The way I kind of see it is Oikawa’s rival, Ushiwaka-chan, can be referenced to the old school mentality of “brawns over brains.” This is not saying that Ushiwaka is unintelligent. In this time period, the greatest and strongest warriors were always sent out to fight the main battles, taking the role of leadership. This basically reminded me of the chapter where Waka’s coach talks about his style of game play, where players are chosen solely to help Waka. Oikawa represents the evolved belief, that being tactical is more useful, drawing out the most from his teammates and multiplying their talents. 

What spurred this thought on was Oikawa’s famous line, “This insignificant pride of mine, you had better damn well remember it.” I find it so ironic and interesting that this topic/theme is brought up here. Is it pure coincidence or is there really significance to this whole ordeal?

hatchibomitar  asked:

hi! sorry, im a bit confused - you answered an ask saying louis was closeted, but didn't he say he was straight in an interview? was there another thing that said he's actulaly not straight? im just confused. thanks

Hello,

I am terribly sorry this took this long to answer. Life was very much getting in the way, but here I am now. I am not sure how much you know, but here is the thing. I am not going to tip toe around the topic, I’d rather pull the band aid off and tell you the story.

Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are a couple (Harry named their relationship back in the X factor era Larry Stylinson). Have been dating for 4 years and are very much in love. Since they are members of the biggest boyband in the world, with a lot of screaming teenage fans, they cannot go around holding hands and kissing each other or even just claim they love each other. Their Management has been using a very old method: they closet them. Closeting means that they have to hide their sexuality. Remove anything queer, stop the flamboyancy, control the body language, the reactions, the fond.  Louis got a beard, (aka a female claimed as his girlfriend to hide his homosexuality). Her name is Eleanor and she is not dating Louis in real life. She is faking it and that is her job. She has a contract and they are parading her and Louis when there are cameras around and when promo requires. Harry has taken part in several PR stunts. The most famous is with Taylor Swift, I am sure you have heard about that.

Their team built this horrible destructive narrative that Harry is a womanizer, sleeping with every person with a vagina, and Louis is a homophobe, who is in fact very much in love with his girlfriend and LEFT Harry, his best friend because he was sick of gay rumors.

When you look into their personalities, their quotes that are actually coming from their mouth, not from magazines, what they claim with their clotheing and tattoos, these narratives just don’t add up. 

Every day there is/was a new article that Harry is dating x. The next day it was y. Then z. Then again with x. However their team’s interest changed in promoting certain models. If one was close to re-sign a Victoria Secret contract, let’s parade her around Harry and that will raise so much attention and give the person’s name such a boost, that they will re-sign with them immediately.

And we have Louis Tomlinson, who has claimed several times that he welcomes any fans, no matter their sexuality. He has worn rainbows many many times this year and has never showed any sign of not supporting LGBT rights.

Harry and Louis have been showing signs of discomfort with the closet, tried to undermine it as much as they could, since they cannot openly speak up against it, some sarcastic comments or snarky remarks, an eyebrow raise were thrown and even their bandmates made fun of beards, which is a constant running “joke”.

Both Harry and Louis are affected by Eleanor’s presence, Harry used to tweet song lyrics to warn us when she would come. And it worked like clockwork. Song lyrics on twitter, then in 2-3 days she showed up. Louis is affected and was well affected when Harry had the PRship with Taylor. I have never seen that boy so dead in the inside. Same for Harry. They were both miserable.

This year has been so much better than 2013, and although the closet is still up, during August Harry has shown many signs of wanting to leave the closet and come out. There was a week in August when the guy rebelled so much, that there were masterposts how he lost his chill (or never found it.)

Closeting also involves a narrative that Harry and Louis are no longer on speaking terms, not sharing friends anymore, not hanging out if the other one is there. The last time the 2 have been papped together was before the Earth was round. This whole narrative has been debunked so many times by fan reports, their body language and fond toward each other. How they mirror each other, how they are always aware on the stage where the other is, we called it orbiting. They are sharing at least 6 complementary tattoos. Not a little heart or a music note. I am talking about tattoos that are unmistakably showing the deepest commitment a 20 and 23 year old is capable of.

Anchor and Rope. (positioned on the same place)
Ship and Compass. (compass pointing to the ship)
Quote and Quotation mark (positioned on the same place)
Empty birdcage and Birds
Rose and Dagger (positioned on the same place)
Hi and OOPS
Heart and Arrow. (positioned on the same place)

We went through a very intense couple of months in the end of 2014 where for the first time the media (who is so clearly in the know about Harry and Louis and their closet) started a whole lot of Larry Stylinson love. Articles questioning Harry’s sexuality, articles making fun of the PRship and beardship, articles where finally Harry Styles’ and Louis Tomlinson’s name are in the same headline. They started to interact during interviews, they were singing some songs next to each other, then they were stood next to each other on HQ pictures, red carpets, even entire shows. They touched, they serenaded to each other on national TV and people started to pick it up. From one look and fond they were able to see through the web of lies and realize that these 2 boys love each other deeply.

I am sorry for giving you a who lot of history lesson here, but it was needed to answer your question.

The boys’ twitters are not only accessible by them, Themselves admitted their team uses it for “promo”, and if you need proof: tweeting in the middle of the concert is maybe not the most believable when the band member is jumping on stage in front of you and is clearly not pushing the buttons of their phone. There are times when their team uses their twitter to somethiing else, like denying rumors.

There was a twitter rant we call Bullshit 2.0 on November 10th, RIGHT AFTER the infamous Four Hangout livestream, and during this livestream Louis Tomlinson, the real Louis Tomlinson was given plenty of opportunity to address the articles written about him, they were asked at least THREE times what the rumor was that bothered them the most. Louis did not bring anything up, clearly did not want to answer and that way give a denial of the whole rainbow Apple logo T-shirt topic, because he DID weear the t-shirt on purpose. So after this fatal fail of a livestream their team went and lashed out on his account and that was when it was claimed that Louis Tomlinson is in fact straight. Problem here? No one accused himself of being anything but straight. The articles were claiming he wore the rainbow shirt in support of the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook who recently came out as gay.

Louis had NO REASON to say such thing, since he never showed any signes of being unfomfortable with LGBT fans or queerness in general.

You have Louis Tomlinson not denying anything when he had several opportunities VS @Louis_Tomlinson who lashes out in the sickest and most damaging way possible, alienating LGBT fans, making them feel shit about being who they are, or maybe they don’t even know that yet, maybe they are just discovering their sexuality. This message is clearly not helping them and there has not been an official apology made towards the fans. No apology since Nov 10th. 

If he was accused of not being straight, then his lashing out would make much more sense, but he wasn’t. He denied something he was not accused of.

It’s the same: I ask my daughter if she wanted to play with the puzzle and then she answers that she has not broken the flower pot.

Well, not like I asked but thanks my dear girl for admitting that you DID in fact brake the flower pot.

And maybe playing up the loved up with his girlfriend with a little more enthusiasm and forgetting to look at Harry with the biggest fond, not having his voice crack when talking about him, not getting complementary tattoos and not mirror each other as if they were married for 2 000 years would DEFINITELY make it more believable that Louis Tomlinson is in fact straight.

Until then, it was a disgusting and very very unnecessary step that again just caused alienation, bullying, homophobia and confusion in the fandom. That person who tweeted thos horrible things was not Louis. Louis is his actions and own words, not his twitter.

anonymous asked:

Can you do a headcanon for Kara and Astra?

I am so sorry for being behind on answering my headcanon asks. I know you said headcanon and not headcanons but it is impossible for me to do only one.

  • Kara discovering Astra has never had a potsticker before. Chaos ensues involving ordering food that would feed a small army
  • Alex calls Kara a dork and Astra immediately gets angry until Kara explains that being called a dork is not necessarily an insult
  • Kara will talk with Astra in Kryptonian as often as possible. She taught both Clark and Alex some Kryptonian, but never enough to hold a conversation with such ease, and it brings her a lot of comfort and allows her to feel more connected to her Kryptonian origins. *This is one of my biggest headcanons for these two*
  • First time Cat meets Astra she makes a snide remark about the white stripe and Kara ends up having to quickly referee
  • Kara teaching Astra lingo and idioms and Astra constantly using them wrong or combining them.
  • Astra: You’re barking around the bush
    Kara: Umm it’s barking up the wrong tree or beating around the bush
    Astra: *Death glare*
    Kara: OR that works too
  • superpowered sports. Just saying. Imagine them throwing a frisbee while in midflight. Or tennis. For some reason I think they both would really enjoy tennis. That might be @kara-lesbihonest‘s new fic influencing me. 
  • Astra is brought to tears when Kara shows her the paintings she did of Krypton. She didn’t want to admit how much she missed her home planet, but seeing the paintings Kara did helped her admit it and feel a bit closer to Krypton. Kara ends up giving some of them to Astra.
  • Before Astra and Kara get on better terms, CUZ IT’S GONNA HAPPEN, Kara goes head to head with some big bad alien and ends up getting the shit beat out of her, and as she is losing consciousness Astra shows up and flies her away. Even though they have their differences, Kara is her family and Astra isn’t going to let her die like that. But Kara, in her concussive state, is not thinking straight and before passing out imagines Astra to be her mother coming to take her away. Cue angst.

So I wrote most of these during the day, but finished them up at 3 in the morning. You can tell by that last bit that is angsty.

Girls On Film

Summary: Rumbelle AU.  Tempted by the thought of making some quick money, Belle answers an ad for a model.  She finds a very attractive photographer waiting for her.  This is my first attempt at writing a Gold who isn’t Rumpelstiltskin, and I suspect it will be my last, although I might revisit this verse for some future PWP.  Rated T



The half-column ad caught Belle’s eye.

She was between jobs, the library she had worked at having closed as a cost-cutting measure. The branch on the other side of the city had no current openings, and while she had put out inquiries and hoped to find another position in her field within a month or two at most, she had thought it best to find something temporary to pay the bills so she didn’t have to dip into her savings too much. To that end, she had been perusing the classified ads in the morning paper.
