okay so my sexuality's a complicated deal so let's just call me queer as hell
nono I wanna know can't you explain it
well ok mainly I am asexual which means I don't want to do the do nor do I long for it, so it has nothing to do with lack of confidence or anything like that, I simply don't find anyone sexually attractive
but I'm also bi romantic. The sexual and romantic attraction are different, and I still fall in love and want to have physical contact with my partner, I just don't need the hanky panky
right cause you have a girlfriend that's pansexual right
exactly and as long as we're both happy with not doing the rumba naked, that's a valid relationship
I get it, I get it... I didn't know the entire sexual and romantic orientations were different
yeah I know it was an eyeopener for me when I found ou-
Lady behind us in line:
excuse me so sorry but I couldn't help but overhear but I didn't know half of what you just said and I was just wondering what that thing your girlfriend was is, pansexual?
*awkward glance at friend* oh uh I'm not an expert or anything and uh ok so basically it's similar to being bisexual, but there's less value in what gender the one you're attracted to is, at least as I understood it. So a bisexual would be attracted to a person despite their gender, a pansexual wouldn't really care at all in a way uh I'm sorry I'm bad at explaining
Lady behind us in line:
that's alright I can look it up myself later you gave me a general idea! So where did you find out these things, you're pretty young?
well, Internet. Once you're a bit confused about what you might be you usually go looking for explanations...
Lady behind us in line:
so uh in theory... It's fine if you don't know, I just want to check with you... Is there a thing called aROMANTIC? like you're asexual, is there a equivalent to the romantic orientation you mentioned?
oh yeah, absolutely! You can be both asexual and aromantic, or aromantic and heterosexual, literally all combinations are possible!
Lady behind us in line:
*smiles LIKE REALLY GODDAMNED GENUINELY* thank you so much, I did not know that. *fishes up phone from pocket* now if you excuse me, I'm going to call my mother and tell her I'm not crazy for never having been married or stayed with one guy for long despite being 50+ but still has three children! *steps out of line and walks off while dialing*
wow that was... Amazing
see how happy she got? That's the power of right information.
And that's why I've been smiling since this happened.
Here's a thing I just re-watched civil war and when tony says "you're done stay down" peter starts to get up and then grabs the side of his chest the same way I do when I go a little overboard while binding. I bet before that fight he had never done so much physically and I also bet that the suit didn't have a binder in it yet because tony didn't know so he wore it without thinking about the exertion. Anyways just another trans peter thought I had thanks
peter doesn’t usually like binding bc his breasts are small enough that if he wears a oversized shirts and enough layers you can hardly tell he isn’t totally flat chested, but he still brings his binder with him to berlin just in case.
and he wasn’t going to bind during the fight bc his homemade suit is super baggy, but then tony makes him such an awesome suit…. but it’s skin tight. but it’s so COOL. and he knows it’s dumb, he KNOWS that, but he decides to bind. he reasons it’ll be okay because of his advanced healing factor, and besides — he’s spider-man!! he’s like 100 percent sure that he’s gonna kick captain america’s butt without even trying, let alone enough to feel the effects of his binder. 97 percent sure.
but hours later he’s laying on the tarmac of the airport, tony has just flown off effectively benching him from the fight, and he can’t move. everytime he tries to sit up his ribs feel like they’re gonna crack, if they haven’t already. and suddenly he’s aware of how lightheaded he is. he’s going to pass out. shit, how did he not notice this before?? it must have been all the adrenaline?? he didn’t know, didn’t have the energy to even think about it. he tried to sit up one more time, and that’s what caused his vision to spot up and go black.
he wakes up in his hotel room, momentarily confused about his surroundings. but then he remembers he’s in berlin and he relaxes back into the bed. but then he remembers the fight, that giant ant dude (hah, oxymoron), he remembers mr. stark flying off, he remembers not being able to breathe. but he can breathe now…
he tries to bolt upright but a sharp pain in his side makes him hiss and fall back to the bed.
“well, good morning, moron. or should i say good afternoon,” tony says, sitting in the chair on the other end of the room. he looks bored, scrolling through his phone. he also looks way more beaten up than he did when peter last saw him.
“how long have i been out?” peter says. he wants to cry. tony has to know. he has to. he wonders how many others know.
“several hours. oxygen deprivation and two cracked ribs can sometimes have that effect. but don’t worry, your healing factor is off the charts, almost on par with caps. you’ll be all healed by morning, if not sooner.” he sounds kinda of interested, and in any other situation peter would be tripping over himself to talk science about all the mutations he got from the spider bite, but right now all he can think about is his chest.
“who found me?”
tony chuckles. “i forget that’s what she calls herself. how pretentious.”
peter laughs humorlessly and ends up coughing because it hurts. “she’s pretentious? have you met yourself?”
tony looks up from his phone then mumbles, “you and pepper would get along.”
“where is it?” peter says, looking up to the ceiling. he feels himself starting to cry, he hates it.
“where’s what? oh you mean that thing that was on your chest? that had to be cut off.”
and peter feels himself choke on a sob before he can stop himself, it sends a shooting pain up his side. “that was my only binder.”
tony whistles and peter looks to him blearily through the tears welling up in his eyes. once they make eye contact tony gestures to the table next to peter’s bed. confused, peter moves his head only to have his eyes widen. some tears overflow against his will.
on the table are four high quality binders, each a different color, two of them are short binders and the other two are modeled more like tank tops.
tony stands up and walks over to the end of peter’s bed. “natasha knows, just natasha and i. sorry about that, but it couldn’t really be helped. but if it makes you feel any better natasha couldn’t care less, and even if she did she wouldn’t tell anyone.” he rolls his eyes and scowls. “she’s good at keeping information to herself.”
peter’s kind of dazed. he didn’t expect this.
“do you care?”
tony shrugs. “i don’t care that you’re trans, what i do care about is your health. you can’t wear your binders when you fight, peter. c'mon you’re a smart kid, you have to know that.”
peter sighs, kind of relieved, kind of stunned, kind of happy, kind of sad, and very tired. “i don’t fight in binders, i only did it this time because of the new suit. it’s so tight… they would have seen.”
tony makes a “hmmm” noise as he thinks, then he abruptly claps his hands together and moves towards the door. “i’ll sort that out. but right now i have places to be. happy is right next door if you need anything, and even though your healing factor is incredible i still wouldn’t over exert yourself. good job out there, kid.”
peter says thanks, but tony is already making his way out the door. everything feels kind of surreal. he looks at the binders and smiles.
People were interested in me doing a thing like this, so here we go! I figured I’d do a short little blurb about each writer, including one or two of my favorite works by them. So, in no real order (like, I literally randomized the list) here are some of the most talented people* whose art I’ve had the pleasure of reading:
*Please note that some of these people haven’t written for bellarke in a while! That doesn’t mean you should pester them about it! Appreciate the heck out of what they have written instead. Cool? Cool.
Maria’s written a good variety of longer and shorter fics, and each of them is excellent. (She’s also an amazing human/friend, but that’s more of a side perk.) She’s currently writing Things We Shouldn’t Do which is what everyone wants out of a multi-chap, fake-dating, actors AU. Or for something shorter, check out T.O.P. S.E.C.R.E.T. for some friends-with-benefits/feelings-reveal goodness. And maybe if she loves me she’ll finish Let’s Go to the Mall but it’s nbd.
I read The Squire (multi-chap, medieval AU) when I was pretty new to the fandom, and I’m still completely in awe of it. Steph’s also written a million other amazing bellarke fics, like this fluffy-af youtubers AU (and, recently, some fucking amazing Jyn/Cassian stuff, if you’re into that) so make sure to check out all of her incredible writing.
Chash has written a million and one amazing fics, so obvs read everything she’s written, but one of my particular faves is Some Cheese With That Whine. It gives me all the best-friends-to-lovers feelings. Amazing. Plus she likes all my posts when I’m flailing about ffx <3
Lana’s another one of those writers where I know I’ll like everything she publishes. She’s like, the queen a soulmate AU’s. Her most recent one is here–a cool iteration where you feel whatever pain your soulmate feels. As with all the other authors here, don’t forget to check out all her other stories!
I discovered Kacka this summer, and her stories saved me from boredom on the countless train rides I was taking across Europe. By which I mean you should just read through everything on her AO3 page, like I did. Everyone loves a good coffee-shop AU, right? Check out Got to Find Those Extra Cups to Fill. She’s a fantastic, inspiring writer and an even lovelier human being.
Bri’s another one of the authors I first read when I joined the fandom! She doesn’t write much bellarke anymore, but it’s all still up on her AO3 along with a ton of quality Jyn/Cassian fics, if that’s your jam!
Kayla’s the first person I ever considered my “favorite fanfic author” and the title still fits, even if I do have about a million “favorite” authors now. Full Circle is an older, post s2, fic of hers, but it’s undeniably still one of my faves. A more recent fave is: this is your heart (can you feel it). These are both canonverse, but she writes amazing modern AUs as well. <3
Is it getting old for me to keep saying I like everything insert-name-here writes?? I’d stop, except that it’s TRUE. Mel is fantastic. Her last installment in Good Times Gonna Come is so cute I can’t actually stand it. Something In The Air (That Night) is also super good. (She also writes Sethkate and Jyn/Cassian!)
(Okay I’m running out of time for these last few–gotta get to class–so I’ll just do one fic rec from each writer, BUT they’re all such fucking talented authors. Everything they write is amazing.)
OKAY PHEW. I think that’s everything. As a last note, don’t forget to appreciate your favorite authors! A comment or reblog here and there goes a long way. Kudos and likes are lovely, but not quite as tangible as comments and tags.
Uncle ben was trans too but peter didn't find out until after he died
when peter was a kid he would ask ben what the scars under his pectorals were from, and ben would always laugh and say “i just had to get something off my chest” while may rolled her eyes and punched his shoulder. and when he saw ben injecting some medicine into his thigh one night, ben just said it was to keep him nice and healthy, while may told peter to never play with ben’s syringes now that he knew where they were stored. ben still hid them anyway, even though he trusted peter not to play with them.
okay but the only marichat i can genuinely see is the kind where it’s not 2am balcony visits but just two people trying to find out what the other is like (in a non-romantic way more like who the hell is this person and what makes them them)
like marinette saying an off hand comment about chat being looked over all the time in favour of ladybug saying things along the lines of “they’re a team ladybug cant fight without chat” and adrien just being touched that his awkward school friend sticks up for chat??
like he wants to thank her but knows if he turned around and told her in class it wouldnt quite work out so well. but he’s curious as to what she’s like since she rarely gets a full sentence out around him when he tries to have a conversation
when chat knocks on the bakery door one day whilst her parents are out she’s curious about her partner. (don’t try to tell me people would talk because I present you the evillustrator ep where he just stood outside her door talking and no one saw) so she invites him in for some croissants or something.
at first its just like “a cat told me that you talked highly of me today i just wanted to extend my purrsonal thanks, princess.” and she just brushes it off like it’s no big deal but she’s also curious about what her partner is like. when hes not trying to show off for her or impress “his lady”.
at first it starts off as casual visits to the bakery timed when her parents are gone but when that proves hard they progress to afternoon/afterschool balcony visits. the visits are just two friends hanging out, laughing about any mutual interests they have (chat confessed he liked anime and mari confessed she liked cheesy tv shows and they each watch the other’s suggestion to get to know each other better).
their interactions start to ooze into their other personas. adrien casually referencing a tv show she had suggested to chat and she barely even notices. ladybug mentioning to chat that she agreed that sunsets were the best time of day, even though he had only told that to marinette as chat.
slowly things start to trickle in about each other and only then do they put the pieces together. cue suspicion of identities on both sides. their visits becoming flustering messes because “the coincidences are too similar this definitely might be their crush it might be adrien/ladybug” but also hesitant because what if theyre wrong?
it all comes out of the bag when marinette and adrien are working on a school project together (they were paired up by ms bustier) and marinette casually goes “chat can you pass me that book over there?” adrien complies, not noticing for one moment she used the wrong name.
five minutes pass before both realise what they had done. adrien is freaking because he’s like “oh no i let the cat out of the bag” punning even in the face of disaster when tikki lets him off the hook and reveals mari after she becomes too flustered with the words to say
they then are red in the face and bursting with happiness when they go to school as boyfriend/girlfriend
i have just the thing for to wake your fluff muse up: cs + You just woke up from surgery and you don’t remember me or that we’re married or have a kid because you’re so high but you flirt with me anyway au
okay, so, wanna hear something hilarious? sophie sent this prompt to me A G E S ago, and i started writing it, and then it got lost in the abyss. i’m so glad you sent it to me again. so…take two! i hope you like it!
also, to @killiansdevotedheart! surprise! i’m your CSSV! consider this your pre-gift because i’m still working on your actual gift but i want you to still have something. enjoy for now!
TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME SO
Emma knows she shouldn’t be so worried. It’s a simple appendectomy, after all—the removal of an organ human biology deemed no longer very useful years ago. She shouldn’t be so worried, especially after the doctors assured her she brought him in just in time.
(“A few more days and we would have had a mess on our hands. You did good, Emma, even if it meant dragging him here against his will.”)
Doctors assurances don’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, because it’s Killian, after all—
Killian, who spent two weeks in pain because he didn’t want to trouble her.
Killian, who sat through Henry’s ceremony in utter pain because he didn’t want to miss it.
Killian, who let his appendix almost burst because he didn’t want to be a burden.
— And yet she’d murder him herself if he didn’t make it out of this, adding a whole new meaning to the whole “til death do us part” portion of their vows.
Hello, Aga from Poland. :D I really love your fics. If you have time I have a prompt: It’s Derek birthday after he leaves town and Stiles drunk dialing. Bonus if Sheriff walks in and take his phone and wishes Derek happy birthday.
Oh, thank you!! <3
Since the fandom’s pretty much agreed that Derek’s birthday is on Christmas, I decided to use that here. Hope you enjoy!!
He’s had entirely too much eggnog to be left alone with his phone. His dad should know that. His friends should definitely know that.
But Scott’s busy, caught up in some kind of mating dance with Allison that involves hanging out awkwardly in doorways under the mistletoe and sending her sad eyes, and Lydia’s keeping Allison company at the other side of the room while she sends covert, longing glances back. His dad’s laughing with Melissa with that love-struck sort of look that’s been building up in his eyes for years long now, and probably hadn’t even noticed Stiles swiping the bottle, adding way too much rum after he’d ducked back into the kitchen with it. It’s a holiday, after all, and he’s allowed to have a drink to celebrate.
His dad just didn’t specify how much drink the drink was allowed to have.
So when Stiles ends up in his bedroom, staring at his phone, it’s everyone’s fault, really, and no one’s. Honestly it feels kind of inevitable. Him lying in his room, on the outskirts of the mating dances, scrolling idly through his contact list until he pauses on a familiar number. He has it memorized even though he probably shouldn’t, but this might not be the first time he’s opened up his contact list to stare at it these past few weeks. To look at the name typed out over the digits, to wonder at the way so few letters can leave his chest writhing with so many unresolved feelings.
He lifts his thumb, brushes across the short word fondly, and jumps as the phone registers an attempt to call and starts dialing.
Stiles seriously shouldn’t be surprised that it happened. He’s a clumsy, melancholy drunk, and it’s about time he accepts it.
The phone continues to ring while he stares, transfixed, at the tiny image of a phone blinking on his screen. Connecting… connecting…
It’s the phone’s fault, he decides. That stupid, sensitive touch screen, stirring up trouble by calling people it has no business in calling, just because Stiles had been maybe brushing his thumb across that name, thinking about hearing that stupid grumpy voice. And so maybe he’d been imagining the smooth screen was a rough, stubble-covered jaw, been half lost in imagining what it might feel like under his fingers… but that’s no reason for his phone to go ahead and call him.
And Derek’s surprised too, it seems like, because while Stiles is busy scowling at the stupid device, he answers, and there’s a startled lilt in his voice when he says Stiles’ name.
Stiles should probably just say he’d dialed the wrong number, or shoot out a quick, cheerful “Merry Christmas” and let that be that.
“You’re not here,” is what slips out instead, his hands clenching a little, his lips twisting into a pout that probably carries into his tone.
There’s a short silence from Derek’s end, and then an amused huff of air.

Hey guys!! So like 2 weeks ago I finally hit 10k followers! I finally got around to making this since I finally had some free time. I haven’t been as active as a gif maker in the last year or two so the climb to 10k was slow but I finally got there! I hope to start doing more gifs and stuff soon again.The last follow forever I made was almost two years ago in 2015 so this is long overdue I think.
I can’t even begin to thank you all so much, all of you guys are so amazing and I can’t believe so many people have followed me on this website over the years. I have made some amazing friends and love you guys so much, even if we don’t talk, if we’re mutuals you mean the world to me and all my followers too.
I honestly don’t follow that many people just around 150 blogs and probably 50 or more of those are inactive, so I really should follow some more people… maybe one day. If you have any suggestions just shoot them my way! But I want to appreciate all of the people that I actually will follow forever until the day that I will leave this site. All my mutuals are bolded which is a lot of them oops, but if I forgot anyone please let me know! If I did forget anyone check out my blogroll for everyone else I follow since they are all great! Again thank you guys SO MUCH! I know 10k followers really isn’t a lot compared to some people but it means the world to me ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Now go and follow all these amazing blogs!!
hi, could you please explain the exchange dan had with that guy on twitter yesterday because i didn't get it at all. i didn't understand the tween comment this guy made and i wasn't sure whether that was due to me not being a native speaker of English or just not understanding some reference / inside joke. it did seem mean and offensive to me but ??? also the watermelon gif?
Can you elaborate on the music reviewer twitter thing
what happened with the music reviewer?
Can you plz explain Dan’s whole twitter thing about ARCA cause I didn’t really understand theneedledr*p’s response thanks:)
why are you making such a big deal of the Anthony/theneedledr*p exchange??? it was just a joke. and like i get it humor is subjective you’re allowed to criticize free speech and all that but it’s kind of a silly thing to get mad over don’t you think?
sure. dan likes an artist called arca, a venezuelan producer who makes incredible music tbh and who pushes the envelope a lot w innovative electronic production and who’s also openly queer and incorporates queer themes into his music. he works a lot w fka twigs and has gained a strong following through those collaborations. arca has recently put out a few tracks from his upcoming solo album. dan liked one of those songs, called reverie, and tweeted anthony (theneedledr*p) to include that song in his weekly roundup of best songs of the week (and that if anthony didn’t, he, dan, would unsubscribe). ha ha ha all in good fun, just some nerdy bants between two pretentious music fans. cool. anthony responded, however, by saying that dan should show how much he actually likes arca and his music by getting “all the tween girls” that watch him to go listen to reverie and watch the music video. in that statement he makes many frankly insulting assumptions: first, that all of dan’s viewers are tween girls. second, that dan can’t talk about his actual interests with tween girls and that he represents himself disingenuously to his audience. third, that tween girls wouldn’t be into or understand arca’s new song/mv. it’s just a lovely reiteration of the oldest fucking stereotype in the book which is that young girls are stupid and shallow and, crucially, monolithic–they can’t have diverse or complex interests. they are all the same. they only fangirl over simple entertainment, and their opinions, as a result, are less valid and deserve less respect. pretty fucked all-around. then dan responded with a gif of the watermelon which even i don’t entirely understand but generally anthony is called ‘melon’ by his followers and i suppose the gif suggests that dan is fighting back in some way by showing a watermelon being sliced up. it’s a bit vague.
to the last anon: i’m not sure how i made a “big deal” about this. i wrote about my distaste for this exchange in a tag on a post i reblogged. my critique was like less than 10 words. but you’ve sort of inspired me to make a bigger deal out of it than i did then bc to be frank, this whole shitty attitude that men have towards young girls and their interests DESERVE to be called out, DESERVE to be described for what they are. they’re prejudiced and reductive and misogynistic. and they place pressure on insecure dudes like dan to cater his content to a mythical (partially imagined) audience of straight boys whose opinions he inadvertently values more because of the fact he hears this shit from other straight men around him–people whom he respects and considers peers. he hears people demonizing the stereotype of a “fangirl” and looks at his audience and takes those fangirls less seriously as a result. i mean, i think dan does a good job NOT invalidating fangirls or lumping them all together and stereotyping them actively, for the most part, but he himself has talked about these straight male viewers who expect certain quality from his dinof content and that that is the reason he couldn’t upload a vid of pastel edits onto dinof or a video of him and phil painting each others’ nails. he feels that straight male gaze even if he doesn’t directly talk shit about fangirls on the flip side, and he allows the pressure of their expectations to dictate the videos he makes–i don’t think it’s reaching to guess that those expectations are even a large part of why it takes him so long to make videos. he says in his diss track himself that he procrastinates videos because he’s afraid of being judged. but he knows “fangirls” love him, so who is he afraid of being judged by? the edgy straight guys. i’m angry bc all of this latent sexism is dumb and harmful as fuck and to reiterate:
not all of dan’s audience is female
not all of dan’s audience is young
not all of dan’s young, female audience blindly loves him and everything he makes
there are for sure young females who like “good” “artistic” musicians like arca
even the ones who don’t like arca don’t deserve to be made fun of and stereotyped for liking what they like
or to be the target of assumptions that they are less intelligent and less interesting/complex bc theY DONT LIKE WEIRD ALT ELECTRO MUSIC
literally FUCK STRAIGHT DUDES AND TOXIC MASCULINITY OK IMAGINE BEING SO FUCKING FAR UP UR OWN ASS THAT U NEED TO SHIT ON YOUNG GIRLS JUST BC U THINK UR MUSIC TASTE IS SUPERIOR TO EVERYONE ELSES LIEK
i can’t deal. that shit is fucked up and not funny at all, i don’t see how it’s grounds for a “joke” so like ya. i’m mad. idgaf
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…
Follow up to your Alex post, I think it is also essential for people to remember who Alex Danvers is. She's not just a sister & a daughter, she's a highly trained military agent, at the top of her abilities, second only to J'onn(a powerful alien). Alongside her high intellect, she is trained to kill, torture, lie, and read patterns in body language. At one time she says "I know a lot about people, I wish I didn't". She's aware of what she can do, and how that gradually shifts her personality.1/
We saw Alex “reacting” because it’s what she was trained to do, and killed Astra without a second thought. We saw her losing her shit and torturing that CADMUS guard. She had no issue to lock up Max even without hard evidence. She went rogue, even though she has taken an oath. Every single one of those was to protect someone she loves, not for the greater good. 2/
If Alex was to sacrifice someone she loves to save the planet, she is not the noble hero who would save the planet, she would save her loved ones first. She would sacrifice herself to save others though(because she is a blob of jelly inside). DEO is sketchy and Alex is aware of that, and she still participates willingly, because it provides her the power she needs to protects those she loves, and of course having the power she does busts her ego too. That says a lot about her character. 3/
She enjoys the power, way more than we get to see. Especially the power that is not revolving around Kara. Like when she went after Mon-el in 2x03 and Kara called her dummy for going alone, and Alex was not pleased with that, telling her she would have done her job, mocking a “yes ma'am”. She is annoyed that Kara bosses over her, but she doesn’t really care at the same time.4/4
Heh. So I’ve said before that I will not reblog certain Alex gifsets (the torture scene from 2x15 in particular) because I do not like how fans have glorified her violent behavior. I know people who work in these kind of professions in real life, and wanton extrajudicial torture is not cool. It’s not sexy. It’s not admirable. It’s inhumane and it’s wrong, end of story. And the fact that it’s been turned it into some kind of ~fun joke disgusts me. So does the hot new trend of writing “punch me/step on me/choke me” in your tags on a post where the character is being physically abusive. We’ll be having none of that over here in this corner of tumblr dot com!
IN ANY CASE, you are correct. Alex possesses a whole lot of skills that are, in fact, scary when you stop and think about them. This is one of the most interesting things about her, actually: she draws in and holds her own with some of the most powerful beings in the universe and is completely unassuming about it. It’s kinda like how Harry Potter was able to get the philosopher’s stone because he wasn’t actively trying to plot world domination.
Alex is very much heroic in that she is a self-sacrificing idiot when it comes to the people she loves, but she can also be ruthless and tunnel-visioned in a way that does not a good hero make, and this is where the fascinating gap lies between her and Kara.
Kara looks up to Alex in the adorable way that many a younger sibling does, but this also means Kara has a gaping blind spot when it comes to understanding Alex’s motivations for doing what she does. Kara has a nasty tendency copy/paste her own values onto everyone else unless forced to do otherwise, and the show has set up this conflict in both S1 and S2 but failed to execute it properly. Alex tends to come off looking heroic because her personal goals and her professional goals usually match up. But if they don’t? She will pick her personal interests every time, usually with the rationale that doing things her way will ultimately benefit her professional interests down the line. (And this is almost always the case within canon. See: Black Mercy, Astra, arresting Max, going after Kara in the fight club, Cadmus explodey times.)
Kara, however, hasn’t quite realized that Alex does not actually share her principles, because 99% of the time when Alex is tossing her professional code of ethics to the side it’s for Kara’s benefit.
I’m not sure I agree about 2x03 being a demonstration of ego/power trip, because that scene can also be read as Kara being kind of arrogant for assuming she needs to be there to do the day-saving. Alex is annoyed because she was perfectly capable of doing her job back when Kara didn’t know she was doing it, but now all of the sudden she should wait around for the superhero? Plus, factor in the sibling dynamic here. Telling your big sister what to do when she hasn’t asked for your opinion is a no-no.
Also, your point here is countered by all the fight training scenes in S1. Alex says flat out that she hated it when J’onn forced her to show up Kara and kick her butt.
Alex likes being recognized for her competence by people whose opinions she values. That’s not the same thing as feeling superior.
#8 (this is the best prompt list I've ever seen btw)
“why are you so jealous?”
“you ready to go shawn?” you called from the front door as you waiting for shawn to meet you.
you were going to a club tonight with some old friends you hadn’t seen in a while, you were excited.
you decided to wear your favourite black dress that came a little bit past your butt, along with black heels to match. you always found yourself wearing black and black, it was natural to you.
“i’m coming, i’m coming,” shawn chuckled, meeting you at the front door.
“we match,” you commented as you waited for shawn to put his shoes on. he was wearing black skinny jeans and a black dress shirt that was almost too tight. if you looked close enough, you could make out the defined muscles on his chest and arms.
“if you wear that, we’re gonna be late to the party.” shawn said, wrapping his arms around your waist.
you pulled away, laughing slightly. “come on, we’ve got people waiting for us.”
shawn pouted as you patted his chest, “maybe later babe.”
the ride to the club was spent in comfortable silence, shawn’s hand rested on your thigh the entire time and he was occasionally humming along to whatever was playing on the radio.
getting into the club was easy, but finding your friends was the hardest part. there were many, many, people in the club tonight and trying to make your way through the crowd was tough.
shawn rested his hand on the small of your back, guiding you through the crowd. you knew he was also showing everyone around that you were his.
“y/n! shawn!“your best friend called from the bar, she got up from her seat and practically ran to you.
"long time no see!” you yelled, due to the music being loud. “i missed you.”
she pulled you in for a quick hug, before leading you to the bar. shawn followed, taking a seat between you and your best friends’ boyfriend, jack.
shawn and jack excused themselves after a bit, leaving you two at the bar by yourself.
after about 15 minutes, someone took the seat next to you. you assumed it was shawn so you said nothing.
“can we have some tequila shots?” you best friend called, throwing some money on the bar.
the waiter returned with the shots, and as we went to take the money the man you assumed to be shawn spoke up.
“i’ve got it.”
he handed him money before you or your friend could protest.
“you really didn’t have to do that.” you said, handing him the drink. “here, you can have it.”
“a pretty thing like you shouldn’t have to pay for her own drink.”
you blushed at the compliment, “thank you,”
he kept talking to you, and it was starting to make you and your best friend rather uncomfortable.
he was cut off by shawn coming behind you and wrapping his arms around your waist.
“sorry babe, i’m back. is he bothering you?”
the unknown man’s confidence faded in an instant. “u-uh, no sorry. i was just going.”
as we walked away, shawn continued his death stare on him until he was out of sight.
shawn harshly grabbed your hand, pulling you outside the club before you could even say bye to your friend.
“what’s your problem shawn?” you asked as soon as you walked outside, pulling your hand away.
“you should already know y/n.”
he slammed the door to his jeep after he got in, you following before he could drive away.
“what do you mean? i should know?”
“you were flirting with him back there, and you were letting him flirt with you y/n! what the hell?”
“why are you so jealous?” you asked, “i don’t get it?”
he slammed his hands on the wheel, causing you to jump slightly.
neither of you talked the entire ride home, but you knew that as soon as you walked through the front doors to his apartment you were going to start yelling.
as soon as shawn parked the car you got out as fast as you could, reaching the door to the apartment and slamming it shut.
“would you like to answer my question?” you asked, crossing your arms over your chest.
“you want to know why i’m so jealous y/n? because when you do shit like that it makes me feel like i’m not good enough for you! why should you feel the need to flirt with other guys in front of me? or at all? am i not good enough, do you not want me anymore?”
he ran his hands through his hair and you felt a piece of your heart break with his words.
“oh shawn, that’s not how i feel at all. i love you and only you! you know-” you began, walking closer to him.
“i know, i know. you’re a natural flirty person, but still i can’t help it.”
“i’m sorry, i didn’t know.”
he shook his head, “it’s okay, i’m sorry too.”
you had an idea on how to make this situation a little better. you stood on your tip-toes and brought your lips to his ear.
“come with me and i’ll show you how much i love you.”
All in black, he was a shadow among shadows, dark of hair, long of face, grey of eye.
this happened because @dreamofspring poked me and because i have no self control.
“He has an ally,” Lady Selyse said. “R'hllor, the Lord of Light, the Heart of Fire, the God of Flame and Shadow.” (Prologue, ACOK)
one of martin’s build-ups over the course of a clash of kings through a dance with dragons is the confusion surrounding who azor ahai reborn is on the part of the players within the series. from the moment that stannis’ entourage is introduced in the begninning of a clash of kings, it’s made clear both that selyse and melisandre believe that he is indeed the lord of light reborn, but also that there’s no proof beyond melisandre’s visions that he is. when melisandre is at the wall in a dance with dragons, she is shown a different vision, one that lines up much more with what the reader knows to be true:
Yet now she could not even seem to find her king. I pray for a glimpse of Azor Ahai, and R'hllor shows me only Snow.(Melisandre, ADWD)
that jon snow is likely that great hero that she envisioned, and that he, not stannis, will be the one to save the world from whatever apocalypse the winds of winter and a dream of spring have in store is hardly a surprising turn for the reader, however shocking it may be to the red priestess. jon snow, whose narrative traces the rise of a hero, has taken vows to wear the black for the remainder of his life, and to be “the watcher on the walls…the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men.” he has all the makeup of a shining hero, and yet one whose very birth is shrouded in mystery, in shadows.
shadows comprise one of the strongest visual themes in a song of ice and fire. they visually encapsulate those “shades of grey” that martin so enjoys examining in his thematic and character work. the imagery conflicts itself. do the shadows represent the light or the dark? r’hllor or the old gods of the north? jon’s bastardy or the potential for him to wield intense political power? or, perhaps, it is all of this, mixed together, for lines get blurred in the shadows.
One year ago, when DiU was airing and I was starting to get more into Jojo’s, I happened across some blogs with cute JJBA art. And then some more. And then some more. Dailies, Badlydrawns, askblogs… a whole fun little community, tucked away in a corner I hadn’t noticed. And I thought: Hey, I’vebeen drawing a fair bit of JJBA lately. Why not give a blog a go? It’ll be good art practice, right?
One year, 1200+ posts(!), 6.9gb of art(!!), and over 1260 followers(!!!) later… Yeah, it’s been good practice, past-self. Thanks for taking the leap, and keeping it up all this way. We’ve come pretty far.
And none of it would have happened without all of you. I’m gonna have some specific shout-outs under the cut, but first, let me just say thank you. To everyone who’s sent asks, added notes, or even reached out to my awkward little self with friendship and messages… You’ve definitely made this past year more special. Wherever the future may lead, I’m incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for accompanying me this far.
You and Dean appear on running man and end with an announcement
Dean x Reader - Fluff
“Y/N L/N” Jaesuk called for you to come out from behind the door, you grinned and bowed as you moved closer to the running man members.
“Who?” Asked Seokjin
Jaesuk frowned at Seokjin and Jungkook ridiculed him “Who?! Yah, Sukjin hyung is getting really old now!”
You covered your mouth as you chuckled at the bickering men. Jaesuk returned his attention to you “Y/n, please introduce yourself”
You delivered him a smile and stepped forward “Hello, I'm Y/n! I've just released an album with Dean, please listen to it well and give us lots of love! Thank you” You bowed and waved at the cameras as the running man members exploded into cheers
“Are you and Dean quite close?” Jaesuk asked as he glanced at you and then at Dean
“Yes, we’re close friends” Dean answered.
Your smile dropped as you listened to Dean, however, you had to quickly smile again as Jaesuk turned to look at you again.
