i dont get why the fuck do some people dont get that no means no

anonymous asked:

Lmao what did Ariana do that means she needs to get booed at Manchester?

google is free and this article does a good job of explaining but because i dont want anyone to continue to give this girl money for being shit person, here we go.

besides being a cishet white woman HEADING a PRIDE EVENT (Which is something i shouldnt need to explain why its bad.. pride is by and for lgbt people and should not be HEADLINING a cishet.) 

Racism

image

this is her like 5 years ago vs her now. 
she is a white girl wearing blackface.  and before you go “thats not blackface! thats just a tan!!!” 

image

this is her on stage next to nicki minaj, a black woman. she is darker than nicki minaj. this is what a tan looks like

image

a tan is supposed to give you a more golden sun touched look, NOT MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE A DIFFERENT RACE! (also tan is a golden/yellow brown, not a deep brown… this is not an accident)

her hair, by the way, is in fact exensions. again, making her hair thicker and darker in order to pass as a poc… 
she steals from black musicians too… like its not news that white people steal culture from poc then market it as a new trend but… she really takes it to a whole new level and acts as if her new look is some fucking brand she made. 

remember shen she got a tattoo for 7 rings but didnt finish it and said “oh thats just fine :)” ? 

transmisogyny

in her video “thank you next” she has a man in a dress stereotype for a trans girl, then painted said person as desperate for a date.  this is a transmisogynist caracature. she is a cishet girl. this is transphobic. end of discussion.

homophobia

shouldnt have to explain why a het girl using sexualized lesbians that look like they came out of a porno for men in a music video for views isnt ok.

etc

she ignores when everyone first tried to tell her NICELY that what she was doing is wrong but as soon as people got less than kind about it, got all guilt trippy like a 3 yr old and went “why cant we just all get along its so sd to see people hating like this :(((((( be nice :(( “ 

she is friends with Pierce Morgan (known facist) and is QUITE PUBLIC ABOUT THIS, she constantly preaches the “we should just sit down and talk to people who are flaming bigots. their bigotry is just a difference of opinions ❤️❤️❤️” which is propaganda created by, surprise, the very bigots it refers to. if we dont fight or get upset then they can continue to be horrible people without consequence. 

she is now INSISTING on headlining pride, and i have seen more homophobic people than i can count say theyre going to buy tickets to pride just to see her. let me repeat that. homophobes are going to pride to see a homophobic artist. this is disgusting. this puts every gay and trans person there in danger. actually, it puts everyone there in danger because it is a pride event and any homophobes will see you there and assume youre gay anyhow so! 

tldr:  ariana grande is a racist, transphobic, homophobic white girl parading around in blackface and appropriates black, latino, and asian cultures for $$$ and uses lgbt people for views.

Larry songs timeline & what it tells us about the evolution of their relationship

**These are all just my interpretations but the more I listen to the music they wrote, the more it all fits together. ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THROUGHOUT THE YEARS THEY’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT WRITING “AUTOBIOGRAPHICALLY” AND “FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE”. H also describes hiatus as being necessary bc the songs were getting more and more personal, so keep that in mind while reading…. 

I missed some songs but these stood out to me:

2013

L-Strong: Love isn’t easy (waves trying to break it) but what we have means something and it’s worth fighting for. read: love is only for the brave (Think of how much love that’s been wasted…there’s nothing i’m running from…i don’t care, I’m not scared of love) And we bring out the best in each other so lets not throw this away (i’d do anything to save it…when i’m not with you i’m weaker). 

H-Happily: I want to fight for us too bc we’re on fire and our love is powerful af. ik we have to do stunts and stuff (and if (s)he feels my traces in your hair, sorry love but I don’t really care) but what we have is insane and fuck everyone else bc you’re MINE and i’m YOURS at the end of the day (i wanna be the one who holds you when you sleep). Together, we’re magic so just be with me so happily

H-Something Great: ****this song is very straightforward so i won’t explain it much***** (i want you here with me like how i pictured it so i dont have to keep imagining… We’re better off together here tonight). Written as a longing for what could be if they dont have to suppress the relationship. (script was written…want to rip it all to shreds) Louis’ response (you’re all I want so much it’s hurting) basically says “it’s not too much to ask babe, i want it too.” This has the kind of longing that ‘wouldn’t it be nice- beach boys’ which Harry has admitted is kind of a theme song. 

L-Through the Dark: I know all this bs we’re going through is taking a toll on you and hurts you and i hate seeing you upset (you tell me that your sad…you tell me that you’re hurt and youre in pain and i can see your head is held in shame…i just wanna see you smile again) but I will do everything physically possible to protect you from any pain bb (i’d never let you fall and break your heart, if u wanna cry or fall apart, i’ll be there to hold ya). We’re going through this together and I will take on any responsibility needed to keep you happy.  I’M WILLING TO GO THROUGH HELL TO FIGHT FOR US HARRY LOVE (entire chorus basically).

L-Better than Words: holy fuck our love is amazing can’t even describe it can i just sing to you foreva love u babycakes

L-Why don’t we go there: what if…we just forgot about the world and escaped and enjoyed each others love and rode the high??? Also sex

2014

L-Ready to Run: *Followup to Why Don’t We Go There* But this time let’s escape for real bc (there’s me inside a sinking boat running out of time). Like i’m ready to get out of here and it could just be us living happily ever after (this time i’m ready to run). Honestly nothing else makes sense (without you i’ll never make it out alive…wherever you are is the place i belong). I know what i want out of life and IT’S YOU HARREH (i want to be free and i wanna be yours, i will never look back). 

L-No Control: boy u fine, let’s do what lovers do IN THE MORNING. bc we can. also you own me and i am urs

L-Clouds: WE KNEW THIS WAS GONNA BE HARD SO WHY ARE YOU BEING A LITTLE BITCH (you dont like it complicated…but love is never ever simple…you are tired of all the changes, but love is always always changing). We could be great yo, just keep fighting (if we’re never coming back down, we’ll looking down on the clouds…we go and we go and we dont stop)

H-Where do Broken Hearts Go: IM SORRY LOU BABY YOURE EVERYTHING (rest of my crimes dont come close the look on your face when i let you go… the taste of your lips…is at the top of the list of things i want). H&L’s call and  response at the end is basically forgiveness and acknowledgment (come on baby come and get me out, come on baby cuz i need you now)

H-Two Ghosts: *****was written around this time according to Harry******. This is fucking hard yo. We’re drained and exhausted and idk how much more we can fight for this… (it’s not you and it’s not me…sounds like something that i used to feel). That infatuation and electricity and hope that fueled our younger selves isn’t really there anymore and i’m just tired man (we’re just two ghosts swimming in a glass half empty, trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat, we’re not who we used to be…this was all we used to need). We’re empty vessels going through the motions (same eyes blue, couple more tattoos). AND WE AREN’T FUCKING COMMUNICATING (we dont say what we really mean). 

2015

H&L-Perfect: so what if… we get rid of the pressure of forever? What if we just have fun doing the stupid shit we love and makes us feel alive (trouble up in hotel rooms, secret little rendezvous, things you know that we shouldn’t do). Like we won’t be out of each others’ lives, I’m still around and we can find comfort in each other and even mess around here and there (I can be the one you love from time to time). Remember how we used to be young and EXCITED (when i first saw you from across the room, i could tell that you were curious) let’s get that energy back without the responsiblity of an adult relationship. And we can keep making art lmao (if youre looking for someone to write your breakup songs about). 

H-Olivia: I LIVE FOR YOU, I LONG FOR YOU, I LOVE YA. And i think i’ll always love ya. And I’m scared…of life without you (i get the feeling you’re walking out, time is irrelevant when i’ve not been seeing you, the consequences are falling now, there’s something i’m having nightmares about…dont let me go). But maybe just maybe thats okay, because you’re AIMH (you live in my imagination…i love you, it’s all i do). 

L-Love you Goodbye: I fucking love you and I’ll always fucking love you but i think this is the right thing to do even though it feels so wrong (i know there’s nothing i can do to change it, but is there something that can be negotiated?) We made some goddamn fireworks together though (unforgettable together held the whole world in our hands) and do ya maybe think…we can make them just once more? (if tomorrow you wont be mine, let me give it to you one last time, baby let me love you goodbye…one more taste of your lips just to bring me back to the places we’ve been and the nights we’ve had because if this is it, then at least we could end it riiiiight). ********in the interview with our FAVE Gwen Garcia, she asked if it’s better to say goodbye and end a relationship that’s not feeling right or keep trying even if your heart’s not in it. Harry responds with “I think it’s better to say goodbye…but sometimes if youre trying to protect..” Then Louis cuts him off and says “you’re going deep aren’t you”, brushing the question off as a joke but imho i think there was pain in that answer. Then Harry continues “if you’re not 100% in it, I think it’s better for both parties if you say goodbye”. And Louis adds a “yeah” at the end.********

H-Walking in the Wind: I know this is scary but i think we can do it, (you said to me do you believe i’ll be too far? if youre lost just look for me you’ll find me) I think because youre AIMH and i’m always in yours, it’ll be good for us. And look at us being mature, we’re killing it babe. We can live our separate lives and grow on our own. We dont need to make it messy and hurtful. We’re on the same page. (the fact that we can sit right here and say goodbye means we’ve already won. A necessity for apologies between you and me, baby there is none). At this point, we’re kinda part of each other right? So it’s healthy for us to be apart for a bit. (it’s not the end, i’ll see your face again… i know we’ll be alright…just close your eyes and see i’ll be by your side any time you need me). And you’ve helped me grow into the person I am, and I you, so that’s cool as hell, right? (you will find me in places that we’ve never been). We had a TON of fun (we had some good times didnt we) so i feel okay that we’re doing this (goodbyes are bittersweet) and starting the next adventure in our lives. 

H-If I could fly: I. am. yours. Louis. William. Tomlinson. (for your eyes only, i’ll show you my heart). Maybe this growth thing isn’t worth it, let me prove to you how much you mean to me (i think i might give up everything just ask me to). This is gonna be hard as shit because i’m so dependent on you (i’m missing half of me when we’re apart). I’m being honest and I’m being scared and I’m being vulnerable because I can’t lie to you and pretend I’m strong (i let my guard down, right now i’m completely defenseless). But we’re part of each other, right? (i could feel your heart inside of mine). I’ll always be here for you Lou (for when you’re lonely and forget who you are) even if for now we can’t physically be together. 

L-Home: I’ve tried, Harry. I’ve tried to play pretend (told myself i kind of like her but there was something missin in her eyes). But i was lost (i was stumblin, lookin in the dark with an empty heart) because none of it was enough, none of it was YOU (it was there i sawr it in your eyes). And then i met you and you felt the same and we’re both lost souls playing pretend who found magic in each other (but you say you feel the same, could we ever be enough?) Is our love enough to overcome everything? Maybe we can be enough. Maybe I can make this enough, let me try to make it enough for you. And if we go our separate ways, know that I’m here for you no matter what. I won’t let you be lost again. (When you’re lost I’ll find a way and I’ll be your light, you will never feel like you’re alone, I’ll make this feel like home). So go. wander. find yourself. Then when you’re ready, come home. 

 2016-2017

H- Sweet Creature: ***Harry admit that this was the first song he wrote for the album**** We aren’t in the best place rn. We’ve been fighting (had another talk about where it’s going wrong…it’s hard when we argue, we’re both stubborn). But it’s you Louis. It can’t be anyone else. (don’t know where we’re going but we know where we belong… wherever I go, you bring me home). That’s not even a question. I’m still trying to figure out who I am, but the one thing I know is that a large part of who I am is you (we started 2 hearts in one home). And aint no way I’m losing that part of myself (when i run out of road, you bring me home). It was always you. 

H-MMITH: Whenever you’re ready, I’m ready (just let me know i’ll be at the door,  hoping you’ll come around). I know I need to work on myself a little more (i gotta get better, and maybe we’ll work it out) but honestly i’m getting impatient and i want things to go back to how they were and i want to be yours again (once you go without it, nothing else would do). But I can’t communicate this to you clearly so let me just put this in a song and hope you get it (we dont talk about it, it’s something we dont do) ****Harry mentioned in an interview that he expresses himself through songwriting when he can’t say the words directly to a person because it’s easier to just write it in a song than have difficult conversations*****

H-ESNY: ****honestly no idea what this song is about but it’s something to do with them fighting and not communicating and being in a weird place before their relationship is rekindled*******

H-FTDT: I MISS YOU AND I’M TOO FULL OF PRIDE TO TELL YOU DIRECTLY JUST COME BACK INTO LIFE LOU I’M LONELY AND SAD AND EMPTY AND IM NOT FUCKING FINDING MYSELF LIKE YOU SAID I WOULD (woke up alone, played with myself where were you…we havent spoke since you went away, why wont you ever say what you wanna say) So until then I sit and wait for your sorry ass to make the first move (maybe one day you’ll call me and tell me that you’re sorry too…but you never do). Also like i have to hear from other people how you are?? (i saw your friend that you know from work, he said that you feel just fine) ANd you’re sharing OUR clothes with people?? wtf just swallow your pride and call me 

L-Miss You: OKAY BUT I CANT JUST CALL YOU BECAUSE I HAVE PRIDE TOO also my mates are trying to make me get over you (now i’m asking my friends how to say I’m sorry, they say lad give it ttime there’s no need to worry, and we can’t even be on the phone now). So i’m just numbing your absence with partying and drinks but CLEARLY ITS NOT WORKING (should be laughing but there’s something wrong…shit maybe i miss you…when i feel it coming up i just throw it all away, get another few shots cuz it doesn’t matter anyway…such a good time, i’ll believe it this time). This is weird bc like you were my everything but im trying to get used to this and it fucking sux (oh how shit changes, we were in love, now we’re strangers). And tbh, its scary af bc what if this is it (i’m asking myself, is it over?). BUT ALSO LIKE WTF U COULD REACH OUT FIRST YA KNOW (i’ve been checking my phone all evening).

H-Anna: wtf Louis how do you not see how much this is killing me. I miss you so much and seeing you on tv or in pics drives me wild bc you’re not mine. (I don’t want your sympathy but you don’t know what you do to me…everytime I see your face there’s only so much I can take…I guess it would be nice if I can touch your body). And idk if you’re replacing me (don’t know where you’re laying, just know it’s not with me) and we’re in SUCH a weird place rn how do I tell u you’re the loml (don’t know what I’d say if I passed you on the street…don’t know what I’d tell you if you asked me for the truth) so I refuse to put this song on the album and let you know this and give you satisfaction from knowing how gone I still am for you bc I have 0 idea how you feel (hope you never see this and know that it’s for you)

L-Always You: SO THIS IS ME SWALLOWING MY PRIDE STANDING IN FRONT OF YOU SAYING IM SORRY FOR THAT NIGHT… ok but fr i miss u i miss u i miss u i miss u and nothing else compares like i can travel the whole world and all i think about is how much more fun it was with you and the memories we shared and i wish i could just say thx fr th mmrs and move on but actually no thx actually fuck you for making me not able to enjoy my life without you. So like…come home? and wrap your legs around me? also lmao i took El to a gay bar in amsterdam for her bday lmao i miss u come cuddle me and i’ll tell you all about it

L-We Made It: looks like we made it, look how far we’ve come my baby. They saidd I bett they’ll never make it, but just look at us holding onn, we’re still togetherr, still going stronggg. Also to the fans, miss our single bed and the nights we talked about our dreams :-* also Andrew my man luv u

2018-2019

L-KMM: our love was youthful and exhilarating and fucking electric and i think it still can be. dont know what i’d do without you now

L-DLIBYH: We’re strong babe and we’ve grown and we aren’t gonna let life drag us down. I’m doing better, you’re doing better, this is what we wanted. And now any shit we go through, we’ll go through TOGETHER 

L-Too Young: Okay but looking back, that was a lot of shit we went through and we were just babies and i’m sorry for not fighting harder (i cant believe i gave in to the pressure when they said a love like this would never last so i cut you off cuz i didnt know no better) baby i tried, i tried to protect you but like it was just so much and i hate that you got hurt and i wont ever let that happen again. ALso go us for being mature and COMMUNICATING (face to face at the kitchen table, we can finally have a conversation that I wish we could’ve had before). ANd i know you’re an arrogant son of a bitch who can’t admit when he’s sorry so here let ME say i’m sorry that i hurt you darling. Like we were too young to know we had everything BUT now we’re old(er) and can realize that when we’re together, we DO have everything now and omg is this our happily ever after and we can have a daughter and name her Darcy 

L-Habit: do i need to spell it out for you iiiiii aaaaaaaaammmmmmm sssssssoooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyy. But tbh i let you go because it felt right because mentally you were already out the door and i needed to give you room to grow babe. And i needed the space too (you gave me the time and the space i was out of control and i’m sorry i let you down). but like also i’ve learned i can’t escape you Styles. You’re always in my fucking heart and my fucking mind and in every essence of my being and somehow I knew that 9 years ago and it took me this long to realize how powerful this really is (guess that that i know what i already knew, i was better with you and i miss you now). Ooooh also my favorite line i wrote (took some time cuz i ran out of energy of playing someone I heard I’m supposed to be and honestly i dont have to choose anymore) like who am i kidding, im done pretending i just wanna be yoursss now

L-Defenseless: I can’t help it okay theres something about you that doesn’t let me stay away. I need you and I know that rekindling this relationship isn’t going to be easy even though it feels so so right. It’s going to be hard work (sleeping on our problems but we’ll solved them in our dreams, wake up early morning and it’s still under the sheets) and we need to communicate and solve our problems but here I am, raw and unfiltered and emotionally naked in front of you ready to lay it all on the table (not sure how to say this right, got so much to lose. NEver been so defenseless). So like this branch I’m reach out to you and you be honest with me too babe (you dont have to keep on being strong for me and you. Acting like you feel no pain, you know i know you do…I can’t get inside, when you’re lost in your pride but you don’t have a thing to prove). Be open with me. Lets talk. Let’s solve problems. Lets have an adult relationship. I’m asking for a little vulnerabiltiy babe. It’s just me. Theres nothing to be scared of

L-Walls: And here you have me in my purest form. No lies, no secrets, no insecurities to hide behind. Losing you was fucking painful but i got through it. I’ve been through hell and back and I’ve fought. And without you, I grew into the person I am. And any further growing i’m doing is gonna be with you. bc it was all for you babe. and honestly i can take anything life throws at me now. I’m strong baby. I’m fucking strong and fucking brave and fucking resilient and…fucking yours. ***** wtf is the I just hope i see you one day and you’ll say to me oh oh********

H-Golden: You are the literal sun and I’m not ready. YOU’RE SUCH A GOOD PERSON (you were way too bright for me, i’m hopeless, broken, so you wait for me in the sky). I’m scared to go through this alone, I need your comfort and your guidance (i can feel you take control of who i am and all i’ve ever known). But you’re scared to go through this with me bc you dont wanna get hurt and i’m too open so where tf does that leave us. ******this could be about coming out especially with the London AND NY secret shows where Harry added the lyric I’m hoping someday you’ll open*******

H-Adore You: You dont have to say you love me, you dont have to say nothing, you dont have to say you’re mine. I’d walk through fire for you. Just let me adore Lou. Like its the only thing I’ll ever do. read: Louis is a great person to just admire what he’s like. ALso I dont need anything back. I just dont want to hide my love for you anymore. I don’t need answers or promises. Just let me adore you. ********the music video is also basically a Louis appreciation post. He was the boy with the smile that the world took away from him. He found Harry lost and loved him and nurtured him and made him confident and allowed him to be who he wanted to be. But in doing so, Harry became big and unsatisfied and wanted to explore the world and was clearly interested in Hollywood and Rockstardom especially evident in his behavior 2014-2015. And Louis wasn’t about that life and didn’t want to hold him back. So he let him free. But they realized that they don’t work apart. Wherever they’re going, they’re going together, as the boy sails into the unknown following the fish. I see it as Harry’s version of “this one is a thank you for what you did for me” ************* I see it, I appreciate it, and I love you for it

H-Lights Up: ****fight with Louis. (What do you mean I’m sorry by the way) About coming out? About fame? (Step into the light, so bright sometimes) Either way, L is the guy driving the motorcycle in the video who makes H feel comfortable and safe until they get pulled over because SOMEONE wont let them love*******

H-Falling: What if i’m out, what if i’m someone you won’t talk about? Okay maybe I lied I do want you to claim me. Would me coming out of the closet make that hard for you? I CAN’T GO THROUGH AN IDENTITY CRISIS WITHOUT YOU LOU. I picked someone supportive and now I’m spoiled and I dont know how to be with myself. You want back in my life but what if I dont deserve it? (you said you cared and you missed me too…what i’m someone i dont want around). What if you’re better off without me? (i get the feeling that you’ll never need me again). I know youve been through so much shit because of me, things you’ve never even told me about and im afraid…that I wasn’t worth it. Am I being selfish? because either way, i want YOU (what if you’re someone i just want around). Does that make me a bad person? 

H-TBSL: ****Probably when they starting talking again but it was v casual and they didn’t really discuss their relationship yet*****. I MISS U BUT I WONT TELL U THAT and its nice to talk to u again i missed your voice but if u call me baby i will kill u bc that word has weight OKAY. Like i know you just call everyone babe and darling and sweetheart but baby is FOR ME and only for me when you wake up with me and cuddle me and if you think you have any right calling me baby without giving the luxury of being in a relationship with you then piss off because that shit hurts dude. (i know that you’re trying to be friends, know that you mean it…it’s hard for me to go home to be so lonely). ALso it’s not my fault i’m like this, you literally captured my heart when i was 16 like wtf do u expect (dont blame me for falling, i was just a little boy)

H-Sunflower Vol. 6: we were babies and i was so enamored by you and you’re so bright and beautiful and i want to watch you all day and make you smile and i want you to touch my hair and call me curly and i hope im not making you uncomfortable with my heart eyes but like how are you so perfect. I hope you think i’m cool, i’m really trying but like you’re SO FUNNY and charming and everyone loves you i hope im not embarassing myself. And now it’s like 8 years later and i think i can have you again and i want you so bad but i dont wanna seem too eager and im trying to have dignity and not text you first but like also i want nothing more than to talk to you. Do you think i’m cool now? did you like my new hairstyle? Do you think i’m funny on tour? I want everything i want to be domestic again and kiss in the kitchen and i want to cook for you and as;ldfa;sdhaf i want to buy you flowers everyday and shower ur cute face with kiss. boopx28 

H-Canyon Moon: Hell yea i got ma man back and i have a girlfriend named Jennifer ;) and we are domestic and even though I HATE being away from him for work (so hard to leave it) we have the 2 week rule yall then i can wrap my legs around him and after so so so long I’ll be h.o.m.e. Also did i tell you his eyes are so so blue like sky who i dont know her

H-TPWK: So we’re really doing this. We don’t need to have it all figured out. We can just be us. and happy. and dance. The world loves us babe. (Giving second chances, I don’t need all the answers and if we’re here long enough we’ll see it’s all for us and we’ll belong)

H-Fine Line: You’ve got my devotion but man I can hate you sometimes….We’ll be a fine line. Between what? love and hate? public and private? out and in the closet? each others’ and ourselves? Idk. But i’m going to swallow my pride (my hands at risk I fold) because no matter what, the worst possible outcome is not having you. And I never wanna go through that again. I know we have work to do on our relationship (spreading you open is the only way I know you). And there’s lot of unknown here (there’s things that we’ll never know) but what i do know is that i cant resist you (you sunshine you temptress) and i cant be without you ever again. I think it’ll be hard as hell. But when have we known love as anything but hard? And when have we known our love as anything but worth it? We’ll be a fine line baby. But i know, i knowww with every part of me that we’ll be alright. Because these past 10 years, we’ve been through A LOT. ANd it could have ruined us and made us cynical and cold and closed off. And I think at one point it did. But you know what we did? We fought it. We fought it together. Then we fought it individually. And we became BRAVE. And a brilliant man once said, “love is only for the brave”. 

anonymous asked:

in an ideal world how would you want lena and kara to come back from the fallout of lena's confession/betrayal

ok i think i would ignore crisis happening lol but let’s say we pick up after all that shit and lena is still big mad and still plotting the mind control thing

only kara doesnt tell alex bc shes gay bc she doesnt want lena to get in trouble. i know what youre thinking, ‘sho thats dumb stop being so fucking stupid why wouldnt she try and save the world like she normally does she knows lena is doing something bad’ and i wanna say valid i am fucking stupid,,,, but maybe she doesnt think lena’s idea is evil? she doesn’t know what lena’s full plan is, not yet anyway. and she knows that lena will never try to inflict pain the way lex did. lena is angry, lena hates her, lena trapped her in the fortress of solitude.

but lena isn’t evil. 

kara knows that. she knows that on every level, every facet of being. lena is not evil. lena does things for the betterment of society. lena must have a plan for this, somehow. she waits to see what happens. 

jonns brother finally reveals lena’s plans for myriad and why she had kept him captive. the deo gears up immediately, ready to fight there way into l-corp, ready to arrest lena luthor. kara stands in front of them. tells them if they go after lena, then they’ll be facing kara and they all know kara will beat them, every time. alex asks her what the effword she thinks she’s doing. kara says ‘im doing the right thing’.

she flies to lcorp to warn lena and protect her. lena tells her to leave and kara says she wont. she sees the hope/eve hybrid and she just sort of sadly looks at lena. 

‘why did you do this to her?’

‘she betrayed me once. this way it wont happen again. now leave. before i mind control you, too. i wont hesitate.’ her voice shakes, though, giving her away.

‘dont you get it?’ kara says. ‘i’d already do anything for you.’

lena falters, just for a moment.

‘why aren’t you stopping me? this is the type of thing you usually wax poetically about.’

this time kara falters. 

‘maybe.’ she hesitates. ‘maybe i’m tired of expecting the best in people.’

lena laughs, but nothing about the situation is remotely funny. 

‘giving up on humanity already, supergirl?’

kara shakes her head. ‘i think i trust you more than i trust them, that’s all.’

‘that’s ridiculous. i trapped you in the fortress of solitude. i used kryptonite on you, knowing how painful it is. i hurt you.’

‘i hurt you first. you were angry. i betrayed you.’

‘so you’re just doing this to get back on my good side? dont be so transparent, supergirl.’

‘i’m doing this because i love you. and it might not be in the way you love me but–’

‘what do you mean in the way i love you?’ lena’s eyes narrow. her heartbeat speeds up, kara notices.she panics.

‘i. uh. nevermind. you dont love me, anymore. im just being stupid.’

‘what. do you mean.’

‘im doing this because i want humanity to be better–’

‘i dont believe you.’

‘- i need them to be better.’

‘do NOT lie to me, kara.’

kara’s shoulders droop. ‘im doing this because im in love with you.’ she pauses, and then repeats herself, this time just a fraction more confident. ‘im in love with you, lena.’

‘no youre not.’

kara laughs softly. lena isnt laughing. they both feel sick.

‘what youre doing. i know you, lena. if you think this is the right thing to do, i’ll protect you, i’ll support you doing it. but if you’re doing this because i was a fool and i hurt you–’

‘dont think so highly of yourself.’

‘if youre doing this because you think any other person would do what i did if they were in my shoes… they wouldn’t. people are braver than i am - humanity is braver than i am. i pretend to be some superhero and i run around all day in this ridiculous outfit and i think im helping people but what good is that if i hurt the person i care about most in the world? if im just a scared little girl who would rather lie to her best friend than be honest with her? people are better than that. they’re better than we give them credit for. 

‘but if you think - if you think deep down that this is the right thing to be doing, then you have my support, even if you don’t want it.’

silence settles between them.

‘youre right.’ lena finally says. ‘people are better than you. that outfit is stupid. and i dont want your support. but. youre also wrong. we loved each other in the same way. but not anymore.’

tears prick at kara’s eyes. ‘you loved me?’

‘more than anything. and then you broke my heart.’

‘i will never stop being sorry.’

‘i know.’

‘and i will never stop loving you.’

lena squares her shoulders. ‘i know,’ she says, as though she’s been in this exact situation before, as though once you’re in love with a luthor it’s impossible to stop.

they don’t fight the deo that day. lena finally agrees to stop her research and keep it all in the fortress of solitude - neutral ground - out of the hands of the government and out of her hands, as well. there is no dramatic showdown, no huge ‘i forgive you’ arc. kara saves lena’s life several times because such is the life of a luthor. slowly, lena realises that granting forgiveness is so much easier than holding onto hate. slowly, it ebbs away and she’s left with her feelings for kara - not exactly as they were before, but pretty damn near. 

and then one day kara arrives home and lena is on her couch. kara sits beside her.

‘that supersuit is ridiculous, but the pants are better than the skirt.’

‘i know,’ kara smiles.

‘and people are good,’ lena says. ‘but so are you.’

‘some days i’m not too sure about that.’

‘well i’ll be sure enough for the both of us,’ lena says with a small smile.

‘and what about the other thing?’ kara asks. ‘how we loved each other in the same way? because i didnt like. i still. have, uh. feelings. for you. big, very important feelings that i dont want to overwhelm you with but that would be pretty great if you felt as well. but i dont want to pressure you or—’

lena cuts her off, not with a kiss, but with a hand. a hand that threads carefully and intertwines their fingers together. she squeezes.

‘let’s talk about it over dinner?’

benrey and gman species headcanons!!!!

so i was thinking about benreys abilities and as i wrote out headcanons i decided u know what. i think benrey and gman are the same species. so here are some thoughts about their species:

- massive eldritch horrorterrory creatures, literally incomprehensible to the human brain. youd probably die if you saw their true forms, your brain would just overload and shut down

- so to exist in the science teams universe, they make themselves appear humanlike juzt so they dont accidentally kill people. also just for practicalities sake - way easier to walk through a door if youre human sized hsjfkhsdjk

- ofc they only LOOK human - theyre still all fucked up and monstery and can shapeshift. gman is older than benrey and has pretty much full control at all times over his form, benrey meanwhile struggles a bit to maintain it and forgets stuff about humans - like that their limbs dont bend that way, or their heads cant turn 180 degrees, or that they only have one row of teeth

- they are a mainly Predator Species and so a lot of their biology fits this!!!:

- bioluminescent eyes act as lure like anglerfish - and also sweet voice! ill go a bit more into sweetvoice in a moment but in hunting context, its used as pretty, hypnotic lure for prey and also to calm prey and induce docility and prevent fighting back (benrey doesnt rlly hunt so he just uses it to calm down gordon when he thinks hes too mad)

- benrey in particular’s “huh? whuh?” thing is cause natural predator instinct to hyperfocus on one thing coupled with Neurodivergency means he finds it really difficult to switch conversation topics or pay attention to multiple things at once.

- i thought a lot about communication as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:

- their species has 3 basic forms of communication, or at least those are the 3 ive thought about:

- 1 is nonverbal - thats a LOT of their communication. body language, certain types of blinking or finger movement etc communicates tons. just like a species like a cat or rabbit.

- 2 is how they talk to their young. again, like cats, eldritches have a reserved form of communication (like meowing) for their babies. this is telepathy - they use it to talk directly and comfortingly to their kids and to immediately figure out what they need. this has also evolved into how they talk to humans - like cats meow at humans cause they see them as big babies.

- and eldritches dont actually speak english, they telepathically convert their language to whatever the humans mother tongue is, projecting the language straight into their head. annoying comparison, but like the tardis’ telepathic field in dr who.

- added onto this, this is why benreys english gets worse when hes emotional. e.g: “im a great cool, so now i gonna be bad”. he struggles more to keep up the telepathy when hes upset or ecstatic, so his english sounds more distorted.

- and ALSO benrey forgets as well that humans cant communicate telepathically. hell respond to something someone thought or read their emotions and react accordingly/get them what they need and he’ll be SO confused when theyre like “wtf how did you do that”

- 3 is SWEETVOICE!!! this is a big part of all assets of their language - its a simple ingrained way to communicate simple emotions and greetings etc, like “nice to meet you” “i like you” “i am feeling angry, dont talk to me” etc.

- gman doesnt use it as much because its generally considered a more simplistic and childish way to talk, as its the first way children learn to communicate outside of telepathy to express their basic emotions. benrey uses it a lot because he Likes It!!!!!!!! it easily expresses what hes trying to say.

- this is also why tommy knows how to read sweetvoice - personally i believe hez human and was adopted by gman but gman still taught him how to read sweetvoice. as hes adopted he cant do it himself, but hes the one who understands benreys communication the best cause he was raised by an eldritch

- the skeletons!! eldritches can create entities to assist them, theyre not living creatures they only exist while the species wants them to. benreys are the skeletons - they help him in the final battle and everything.

- benreys also a younger, weaker eldritch than gman is, and uses his skeletons in a slightly different way. the skeleton that asks gordon for his passport isnt ACTUALLY benrey, its an entity benrey has created while hes temporarily dead to project himself out of while his actual form is rebuilding itself in Limbo.

- i believe the whole thing gman was saying about benrey needing to be contained and everything after he was “killed” is just cause hes an abnormally immature/emotional eldritch, and is pretty outcasted and chaotic as far as things go. like usually these creatures are out being Space Diplomats or apex predators or smth meanwhile benrey just likes Being Around Humans And Playing Video Games :] hes looked down upon a bit

anonymous asked:

So since pretty much everyone agrees that Tim needs a name change, and I think most people dislike the first two RR costumes (I dislike the pretty much Robin one too, because it seems like he hasn’t accept losing Robin, when I feel a lot of his comics right after Bruce W died was about that?) which leads me to: What do you think Tim’s costume would look like if he got a good outfit, and what name?

o yeah i was not a fan of the cowl. and the n52 design is just… so busy and excessively accessorised (excessorised???) - i drew it a couple times for this project im workin on and the whole process was me squinting at reference panels and whispering softly but passionately “what the fuck” - and i agree on the rebirth RR design, it looks more derivative of dick and jasons retconned robin costumes than inspired by tims og 80s design (however. the unternet costume - its simple and appealing and clearly nightwing-inspired and i am a fan, also the giant scythe/halberd/mace thing was so ridiculous i loved it)

which is why i thank pat gleason for my life bc tims new outfit is such a good modernisation of his original robin design. so i mean to answer ur question i think tim has a p good design right now (although not for long i guess since they announced hed get a new look/codename soon) BUT if i were in charge of debuting a new design and name… hm……….

whatever his new name is, it’d preferably have something to do with wherever his personal storyline is headed, which i dont know, and for all my complaining abt how red robin is a shit name i dont actually have great alternatives lol. i did see somewhere the suggestion for the name “Cardinal” which i dont hate, so ill use that as a placeholder for now (although “Halcyon” is an interesting option)

tangentially, my personal preference for his robin graduation would be a miniseries featuring tim and damian both as robin, begrudgingly having to work together to fight some greater enemy and becoming true brothers along the way. ending with tim giving damian his blessing to be robin (a post-mantle blessing but still) with the first amicable passing on of the robin title literally ever

as for Look: his new design should a) accurately reflect his character b) mesh well with whatever tone his personal storyline is going for c) be a natural progression of gleasons newest iteration while still d) able to stand as its own iconic look

i always thought tim would do really well in a more grounded noir-style detective story, both using and especially subverting the tropes of the genre (for instance tim befriends every femme fatale and romances absolutely zero of them. theyre pals and have weekly movie nights or smthn) obvs using some of the mystery elements to springboard into classic comic wild times etc etc. theres also a great opportunity to include some more cyberpunk aesthetics to the look and feel of the story

i.e. tim is part of the waynetech r&d teams, working with them to develop new technologies, and proceeding to test out some of the prototypes while doing vigilante work (bc terry had to get his rocket boots from somewhere ok). gotham is still gotham, but its starting to see some of that neo-futuristic/blade runner flavour from batman beyond.

so. cyberpunk detective story starring cha boy tim drake. im not gonna draw it rn but lemme just gather some ref elements here in case i ever do

time for my messy unwanted unpopular opinion (again..!)

  • im sorry to say this but the reason half of you are so angry and disappointed all the time is that you take things so…personally. you think you are louis and what you believe his team is doing to him is actually happening to you? like, yall act like louis’ team is purposefully doing “bad” things just to spite YOU personally. i read shit like “i wanna stop supporting/promoting because whats the point his team doesnt want it blah blah blah”. all im gonna say is no need to be so dramatic no one is forcing you to stream in the first place but also stop being obsessed with his team…? you claim to love louis but then wanna ‘punish him’ because of his team lmao…makes no sense.
  • ppl complaining the promo is bad have literally not been there for niall’s promo but im not surprised because yall only pretend to like him anyway but if you paid attention you would realize louis had better promo than him and the reason why niall is so high now is because most songs take time to build up in the charts. SH debuted at #52 in the US. now its #19.
  • you have literally no consideration for what louis wants. you automatically assume that if what is happening is not what YOU want, then louis also doesn’t want it. you think he wastes his time in small radio stations? well maybe louis just likes meeting his fans from all over the country instead of always staying in london and seeing the same goddamn stalkers. newsflash: you are not louis. you dont get to decide whats good for him and what isnt, you also can’t get in his head to figure out what he wants.
  • you constantly project your stereotypes and bias on louis to shit on his own style. getting mad at his haircut - do you even hear yourself? being mad that what he wears looks “cheap” or “chavy” when all of his clothes are totally unaffordable (at least for me) and he fucking likes it. hes also being paid for promoting these designers so i really dont think hes crying at home. 
  • some of you dont wanna admit it but you hate it because you dont think he looks “stereotypically gay” the way harry does with his bright clothes. you think his clothes makes him look too “straight” and “masculine” and for you its incompatible with your belief that hes gay because gay people cant be masculine apparently. there’s also the fact that not liking a style personally (it’s ok we all have tastes) doesn’t make it objectively bad. you not liking it doesnt mean no one can like it.
  • another portion of you are just deadass angry because he’s (still) closeted and it appears some of you have inherent disgust for that and im not gonna elaborate on how that’s fucked up and none of your business.
  • i hate when he mentions his gf and his kid as much as everyone else but to act like its bad promo is just wrong. everyone else loves it and it makes him relatable even if its lies 80% of the time. just look at liam. so stop projecting, again, your own feelings into the state of his promo. 
  • again its just the FIRST WEEK of promo its not a disaster if he hasnt been on any TV appearance or done any performance. on the contrary, when all appearances are in the same week, the song DROPS after that because there is no more promo. that’s what all of 1d’s songs ever were: best charts the first week (first 2 days, really) then significant drop.

tl;dr relax a bit, and remind yourself at the end of the day this isnt your life its not happening to YOU and the world isnt ending. bye.

  • we’re starting off rather rough skbsksb
  • alright, so right off the bat, im just gonna come out and say that hes really into body worship
  • like,,, he’s quite insecure himself
  • but tell him you’re not feeling yourself one day, and he’d show you why you should be
  • his partner is like… a deity to him, and all he really wants to do is make you feel good
  • also, he craves passion, so one night stands aren’t really his thing
  • like i said, he wants to worship you and literally make you puddy in his hands, but you can’t really do that if you dont know what your partner likes, ya know
  • don’t get me wrong though, just because he wants to prove himself to you doesn’t mean he’s letting you take the lead
  • he’s a dom for sure, as he really wants control
  • and uhhh,,, his virgo mars would probably love a good strip tease
  • he’d probably be into praising you too
  • “you’re so beautiful like this, baby”
  • “everything about you is so fucking hot”
  • you gotta praise him back too
  • tell him how good he’s doing and how fucking amazing he’s making you feel
  • his gem moon would go crazy, and he’d for sure take mental notes on how you like what he does so he knows what to do in the future
  • he’d probably be open to try anything as he is very curious
  • though, he’d only really mention it if you do first
  • so yeah,,, we got a dom boy who wants to prove himself to someone he loves (litERALLY ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS BREATHE AND YOU’VE ALREADY PROVED YOUR WORTH JOONG QKSBSIAU)

  • ….yeah sorry that’s not gonna happen
  • let’s just take a look, shall we??
  • his sun is in aries, his moon is in cancer, his venus is in aquarius and his mars is in aries
  • that… is the ultimate dom (ajdbkd maybe not the ultimate tho bc there are DOUBLE SCORPIO MARS/VENUS PEOPLE OUT THERE AND THAT’S TERRIFYING)
  • so,,,, he just really wants a big ol sub (lmao christian grey who?)
  • he’ll find innocence arousing (another confirmed reason why seongsang is real)
  • probably the only slight sub thing about him is hair tugging
  • he gets turned on pretty easily, and he’s not very good at taking it slow,,,,, he just wants to have you right then and there
  • he’s also open to anything….. and doing so anywhere
  • sexing is probably huge too
  • he loves when you send him a picture of yourself all dolled up for him
  • like in cute, light colored lingerie
  • will probably leave his phone unlocked too because he’d love the thrill of someone else seeing how fucking filthy yall are
  • like imagine sending that to him while they’re practicing and he sees that while they’re on a break and he’s surrounded by the other members
  • he’d probably let out a low, long groan and send something like, “you’re so beautiful, kitten back
  • or maybe yall are at the dorm with everyone else watching a movie and all of a sudden your hand grazes against his random ass boner
  • now yall are in the bathroom with the door unlocked as he’s pounding into you against the wall
  • whew… now that’s,,,,, wow
  • also,,,, just because he’s quick to cave, doesn’t mean that’s the end
  • his stamina is pretty wild, sooooo good luck to whoever is his partner

  • when he does top, it’s passionate and sweet and he just wants to show you how much he loves you
  • but,,,,, he really just wants to be shown how much you love him too
  • you gotta take your time with him
  • tell him how beautiful he is
  • how well he’s doing
  • he has his gem moon in the 8th house,
  • so i really think he likes hearing dirty talk
  • his sex drive is pretty high
  • like he could probably go at least once a day
  • he just gets lost in those fantasies and i oup-
  • boner alert!
  • lmao, anyway, he gets jealous easily, so if you notice, pls show him how much he means to you okay, like that’s all he wants
  • because he’s possessive and he has his sun in the 5th house,,,,,
  • he might just have a breeding kink
  • just the thought of impregnating you would make him flip as he loves kids, so having them with his partner and oof 😩✊🏼
  • like imagine yall are making love and you’re praising him like you’re supposed to (because you ARE supposed to 😠)
  • and he just hits you with one of these:
  • “baby, p-please let me fill you up? i really want to make you mine”
  • and yall know what he means by that sjsbdjdn
  • but yeah,,,, that’s our bby yunho 😳

  • so… now you see why i ship seongsang??
  • anyway, im not saying he likes getting embarrassed
  • though that’s also exactly what im saying lmao
  • like maybe sexually tease him in public
  • run your hand up his thigh at the dinner table
  • call him babyboy in front of the members or something
  • he’d be fucking shook sjdbdj
  • now… he really likes foreplay
  • that’s because of his gem sun and leo venus
  • his cancer moon furthers that
  • he just wants a lot of passion
  • though, he probably wont last long (liKE SEONGHWA YALL IT’S FUCKING REAL OKAY SJSBKF)
  • he also wants to be worshipped
  • like he just wants your utmost attention
  • he wants to be the only thing you’re focused on,,,,, so giVE HIM ATTENTION

things i’ve learned in my sophomore year

intro

hey guys!! today i am going to be telling you about things i’ve learned throughout my sophomore year. i am still in my sophomore year, but i only have less than 2 weeks, so i can say ive learned a lot. so these are going to be tips and tricks :)

nobody cares

i feel like a common fear in school is that people are going to judge you. trust me, i’ve always felt like everyone cares about what i say when i’m called on in class, or i always felt like people were always paying attention to me in school, you know? but truth is, they don’t care. i’ve started to notice that my classmates just don’t care about what i say in terms of if i screw up or something. knowing this definitely makes me feel better about speaking in class. once you accept the fact that nobody gives a fuck, you’ll feel so much more comfortable, trust me :)

flashcards > quizlet

i know this is a really unpopular opinion, but when studying for tests i really prefer handwriting my flash cards. quizlet is great and you should use it, but i would also recommend making real flash cards too! for all of my mandarin memorization quizzes i hand wrote my flash cards and got 100% on every single one. the reason why i like using flash cards hand written is because it is actually a way of studying to just write them! writing your flash cards helps you memorize the content because when you write things you just remember them more. 

do what you love, love what you do

what i mean is dont commit to something you dont like. if you know you dont like it, stop doing it. i had a huge problem with a sport i was doing and honestly this sport made me happy but it also caused me so much anxiety and tears every single day. if something truly makes you unhappy, drop it. your mental health is more important than any sport or club you may be doing. keep that in mind.

be liked by the teachers

now this one is something i’m extremely bad at and still have not done, but i’ve realized this could potentially help your grades. in my chemistry class, my teacher usually gravitates to her favorite students more for questions and if they need help. also, they will probably be more lenient on late assignments, etc. i just think being a favorite or at least being on the teachers good side is very important. i’m not saying be a teacher’s pet who makes your teacher brownies for fun, that’s very annoying, just make sure not to get on your teachers bad side, that’s all. if you want to be liked by the teachers, showing effort is a great way to do it! participate in class and ask questions, also show that you care about the class!

pay attention in class

this one is really big. a lot of times during the year i would take out my book and start reading during class or just zone out because i was bored, but it really hurt me in the end. you definitely will lose so much important content and don’t rely on yourself to teach it to yourself, because chances are it wont work. pay attention in class and you’ll probably have less to do at home. also, this girl in my chem class said that she only studies for 20 minutes for her tests / quizzes yet she still gets straight A’s. this is because she said she pays attention in class. trust me, it helps. some classes that are very important to pay attention in are algebra II (trig, stats, etc), calculus, physics, chemistry. 

drop the fakes

this is something i was successful in! (shocker) you should rethink your friends and friend groups and if one of them is making you unhappy or there’s something happening there, just drop them. don’t feel bad, you should never feel bad about getting rid of negativity from your life. trust me you will feel so much better when you drop the people who make you unhappy.

extra credit

now for those people who think they don’t need extra credit, here’s why you do need extra credit. when your grade is already super high in the class and you get a grade in the low 90% or 80% your grade will most likely drop, so having extra credit will bring it back up. it also gives you wiggle room for mistakes. if your grade is low already, y'all already know why you need extra credit. i know i’ve gotten extra credit assignments and haven’t done them and then i regretted it in the future. do. the. extra. credit. especially if you have the time!!

have a motivation

something i’ve realized is that through out this year i had a motivation to go to school. not to learn, because who actually wants to learn, but i was motivated to go to school so i could see my crush. as cheesy as it sounds, it’s true. and as stupid as it seems, i still got up at 6:30 every day so i could leave my house at 8:00 so i could go to library where he usually is, before class starts. while this may seem stupid, it works! and i’m not saying you have to have a crush or anything, but you should find something that really excites you and motivates you to go to school. some people get motivated by looking through tumblr, or reading books, or thinking about their friends. just find a reason that gets you hyped for school and going to school won’t be such a pain in the ass :)

every marking period matters

okay i’m one of those people who do really well one marking period and then the next one i do bad, i’m very unstable, but THAT IS NOT GOOD. every marking period gets averaged, so even if you get a 90% in a class one marking period but the next you get a 70%, you aren’t going to get a 90%. i personally hate this because my grades really inconsistent. but never think that one marking period matters less, or you can just slack off for one marking period and it’ll be okay. try your hardest always!!!!

make up work

being a competitive fencer, i do have a lot of absences to travel and compete, and a lot of the time i wouldn’t make up the work. make. up. the. work. not making up the work will drag your grade down so much. if you have an opportunity to do the work while you’re absent, just do it. don’t wait until you get back, only if you have to.

eat!!!

i feel like this is really stupid, but a lot of times this year i would skip breakfast and sometimes even skip lunch because i just didn’t feel like eating. i would skip lunch to go to the library because i didn’t have friends in my lunch period and i didn’t want to sit alone. guys, eat your breakfast and eat your fucking lunch. breakfast is sooooo important. It’s what gives you energy for school! and lunch will also give you lunch. it is super unhealthy to do what i did, don’t do what i did. going without breakfast is bad for your health, and going without breakfast and lunch is super bad. doing this could lead to low energy and dizziness, and even worse. and no, coffee does not count as breakfast. 

nobody is perfect

i am a really big perfectionist. that’s not a good thing because i literally will freak out if i’m writing in pen and i make a mistake and have to cross it out. i think i have tried to learn from this? a lot of the people in the study community just white things out, but maybe try accepting the mistake and just cross it out. you made a mistake and mistakes are apart of life. i’m trying to not be as much as a perfectionist and ya’ll should too :) 

SATS

okay, so something i’ve realized is that i should have started studying for the SAT’s back in, like, march, or even earlier. the thing is, now i have to study over summer, and nobody wants to fucking do that. so, if you have time, start early!! also, if you can take it in 10th grade, take it! there are so many pros to taking the SAT’s early. if you start studying in 9th grade and learn everything you need, there’s no point in waiting until 11th. the thing is, 11th grade is one of the hardest years of high school, no doubt. applying to colleges, and for me IB courses start, and so much more, and SAT’s are a huge part too. if you have the chance to take it in 11th grade, it’ll be so great. you get it out of the way, and if you get a good score, you’re done. no more studying, so while everyone is freaking out over summer, you will be chilling :)

you don’t need to know your future

something i really thought about this year was, “holy shit, what the fuck am i gonna do after high school?” i know it’s super early to think about that stuff, but not really! i’ve realized it’s totally normal and okay to not know what you want to major in or what college you want to go to. honestly, don’t think about any of that stuff in 10th grade. i like to think of 9th and 10th grade as the fun years, because starting 11th grade that’s all i’m going to have to think about. 

outro

i hope you enjoyed this “masterpost” type of thing :) i really hope ya’ll can learn from my mistakes or just things i learned this year! have an amazing day and remember to be your best self :)

anonymous asked:

One of my deepest kinques is jyl being alive when wwx resurrects and her more or less telling lwj to fuck off everytime he tries to third wheel the yunmeng reconciliation. I just want jyl to say "I dont care if you're a nice guy who makes my brother happy i WILL spicy food extreme you into qi deviation if you dont let my babies be friends again. And lwj may mostly have balls of steel but hes seen her go up against jin zixun and hes only human so he nopes out of there to let her handle it

BE KINQUEE ANON. I approve. I do love the canon divergences where Jiang Yanli survives Nightless City because (1) she ultimately died to further the plot of the men around her which is Rude and (2) there’s no reason why she should have when she could have easily lived because (a) almost everyone else around her who suffers life-threatening injuries do and (b) fucking Sect Leader Yao still gets to live to unhinge his jaw and grace everyone with his asinine opinions.

As much as I adore Lan Wangji being intimidated by his future sister-in-law (and there’s plenty of other situations for him to be :D) – if Jiang Yanli had lived, I am absolutely certain there wouldn’t be a drawn-out reconciliation process requiring Jiang Yanli’s interference at all. Even if Jin Zixuan still died, even if Jin Ling still grows up with two uncles rather than a father. As soon as Wei Wuxian comes back, as soon as Jiang Cheng realizes – he would cry. He would cry all over his stupid brother. Like yes, there will be some yelling – some How dare you not come back to Lotus Pier right away! Do you know how much I – I mean a-jie missed you? You better fucking kneel in front of her and apologize! But after just enough bluster to make himself feel better, Jiang Cheng would octopus hug his brother for dear life and never, ever let him go again.

Hurting Jiang Yanli was the line. She was the line that you cannot cross. Jiang Cheng would have forgiven anything else if she hadn’t died. He would have paid all the reparations; he would have made nice with all the sect leaders; he would have found a way with Jiang Yanli’s quiet help and prodding. He is furious when Jin Zixuan died, horrified for his sister and horrified that it was their brother who did it. Yet, he barely did anything at Nightless City and was so unspeakably conflicted the entire time. I will never recover from the look on his face after Wei Wuxian’s murderous army of disquiet spirits don’t attack Yunmeng Jiang. It was only after Jiang Yanli got hurt that Jiang Cheng shoved his brother away. It was only after Jiang Yanli died that Jiang Cheng lost it and committed accidental fratricide.

But as we know, even with their sister’s death hanging in between them, even that, forgiveness still comes so easily. So, so easily it kills me. He keeps Chenqing. He says, You didn’t go to Lotus Pier when you were revived. He leaves Jin Ling alone with Wei Wuxian. He invites Wei Wuxian into the throne room before he even learns about the golden core. He shows up at Guanyin Temple despite having his entire worldview for over two decades completely shattered barely a day before. He gets stabbed in the chest. He lets Wei Wuxian play Chenqing in front of Jin Ling, his favorite person in the entire world. Say what you will about Jiang Cheng, and there’s plenty you can say – he’s certainly not perfect – but he is a good person, and he loves his brother.

andreil valentine’s day

it’s 1 am and i should be writing an essay but instead i wrote some valentine’s day andreil oops

  • it’s andrew and neil’s first valentine’s day together
  • they didn’t have anything planned or discussed it
    • neil hasn’t ever spent valentine’s day with anyone who meant as much to him as andrew has
    • and andrew could care less about valentine’s day
      • except for the excessive amounts of chocolate on sale the day after
  • the day before valentine’s one of the foxes (probably nicky tbh) comes up to neil and asks him about his plans for valentine’s
  • neil didn’t know that he was supposed to even plan anything for his whatever with andrew
  • cue nicky acting all scandalized
    • “what do you MEAN you don’t have anything planned ??? no plans AT ALL on the MOST ROMANTIC day of the year ???”
    • “why is it such a big deal it’s literally one day”
    • “WHY IS IT SUCH A BIG DEAL you break my heart neil. truly. do you hear that? that’s my heart breaking”
    • “no i dont hear–”
    • “BREAKING NEIL IT’S BREAKING”
  • neil leaves nicky in the middle of the hallway pretend sobbing
  • later that day neil and andrew are on the roof (bc of course they’re on the roof where else would they be? interacting??? with people ??? lol)
  • neil brings it up
    • “are we doing anything for tomorrow?”
    • “what makes you think that”
    • “idk but nicky rendered one of my ears useless from screaming about needing to do something for valentine’s day”
    • “i don’t care about valentine’s day”
    • “ok but like do you wanna go somewhere or not”
    • “i don’t care”
    • “you’re so annoying andrew i literally ask one question”
  • the next day neil is in class and he gets a text from andrew
    • ‘come to the roof’ is all it says
    • ‘i’m in the middle of a lecture what do you want’
    • andrew doesn’t answer
  • so neil excuses himself from the class
    • “sorry im suddenly sick cough cough”
  • when he gets to the roof andrew is sitting there but there’s also a blanket and some food
  • and andrew is avoiding looking at him until he sits next to him on the blanket
    • “i thought we weren’t doing anything today”
    • “i changed my mind”
    • you changed your mind or did renee convince you to do this”
    • “shut up and eat your food”
  • they finish their food and sit there smoking until andrew suddenly says
    • “don’t think that this means anything”
    • “i don’t”
    • “because i still hate you”
    • “i know you do”
    • “but you’re tolerable”
    • “wow what a compliment i’m so honored andrew”
    • “and now i don’t tolerate you anymore shut the fuck up neil”

All Human, Dark AU (Part 1). You don’t name your livestock; they’re easier to kill that way. Cardan has a job, getting information out of young college student, Jude. But getting information means getting close but how close can he get if at any given moment, he can be given the order to kill her?

Trigger Warnings: Crude language, Drugs, Sex, Murder/Talks of murder, Sexual/Physical Assault.

Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7

Cardan’s POV

It’s cold outside, but it doesn’t bother me as much as it should. I’m more annoyed about the fact that I’m on babysitting duty. Standing in the dark like some perv stalker was never my forte, but I might be on probation for setting off a bomb or two at my maybe brother’s estate. With all the dick wetting my father’s been doing since before condoms were invented, I wouldn’t be surprised if I had a whole country of half siblings I’m unaware of. Balekin, my maybe brother, was not necessarily the target of the explosion, but I probably shouldn’t have assumed he wasn’t in the house with his wife.

Although I was hoping he was.

He’s managed to escape, almost too smoothly, but his wife never made it. With how things went that night, she was supposed to be dead before the explosion. The detonation was only to ensure there were no body, no traceable evidence and no witnesses.

I roll my eyes, more annoyed at the thought of Balekin. That spineless piece of shit is still in the hospital, being treated for burns and maybe a broken bone or two.

A few weeks later, Madoc assigns me to this job. Of course, I can veto anything I want, because whatever I don’t take, Madoc takes instead. He didn’t give me that choice this time. He said that was all we had planned and he knows how much I hate doing absolutely nothing. As much as I hate watching people from afar. My go to methods are usually straight to the point, torture, murder that whole thing. Madoc’s more for the marinating and spooking before pulling out the big guns.

I like to pretend we’re partners but the truth is, Madoc calls the shots most of the time. I just like seeing things go up in flames. There’s always a war between gangs and bikers and politicians and Hell, even neighbors, and the two of us are the last resort so to speak. When there’s no going back and there’s nothing left to do, it’s either one of us that gets called in. We’re the end game, and more so dangerous because we have no ties. Our loyalty lies with the most money offered on a first come first served bases.

Usually I ask for the most basic of information on any given target, but Madoc doesn’t give me anything. When he says shit like, “I’m not trying to punish you,” I know damn well that he is, in fact, trying to punish me.

“I don’t want her killed.”

“Then what do you want?”

“Just watch her tonight and report back.”

“Why?”

“I’ll explain later, I have to go.”

My hood is up, now and I blend easily into the shadows, leaning against a big oak tree that sort of marks the perimeter of this house’s backyard and the lake that separates these little rich kids and the less fortunate a boat ride away. Very West Egg/ East Egg of Elfhame. Most of the party is being held outside, though I’ve seen people head back to the house, probably to fuck or shoot up their crack without prying eyes. The music is muffled, some kids are snorting blow, some are shot gunning beer, a joint is being passed, someone jumps into the pool, a couple fights and finally. She walks in.

In a firm fitting set of leggings and a white shirt tied in the front, showing off her mid section, she’s questionably dressed down. Three gold necklaces dangle off her neck, the longest one settling by her belly button and the shortest looking like a golden collar. Her hair is swept up in a knot atop her head, golden earrings dangle from her ears and her lips are a dark red that has my dick twitching. Of course I’d be the one imagining her lips wrapped around my cock, knowing full well that Madoc doesn’t want her dead tonight but he’ll eventually give me the okay to slit her throat soon.

Keep reading

okay but,, let’s talk for a moment about jake and amy,, ive been thinkin bout this for yeARS but for some reason recently it just won’t leave my head and guys just,,, hear me out okay

i’m fascinated by their work dynamic like not their relationship i mean that def plays into it as well but literally HOW each of them work and how they fit so well together bc of it

we’ll start with amy, yeah? she’s a nerd without a doubt her father is a cop and she’s been living with cop stories for years probably grew up on shitty cop shows too and fell in love with it (a bit similar to jake right? besides the point but a fun fact to throw in) HERE’S THE THING my girl puts an emphasis on studying and hard work. she wants to be a cop? she gotta focus every little part of herself to getting there (also there’s her art degree which is so cool but unfortunately will not be talked about rn) so here’s the thing, aight? she is not a naturally gifted cop (see the latest ep where she mentions you can’t be good at puzzles. oc you can. some people see the world differently and can piece things together like that. but she makes up for all of that in HARD WORK AND FOCUS) and i could go on but this brings me to….

JAKE PERALTA offspring of a douchebag and an arT TEACHER we all know our girl karen she’s a mess but a girl has passion and little boy jakey here knows nothing about cops except buildings exploding!! chasing german bad guys!!! propelling from roofs!!!!!!! and that’s enough for him to follow his dreams. but here’s where he lucks out. this boy can solve a fucking puzzle. we don’t see it all too often in canon (i cant even think of any examples rn jus trust me) but he hella cares and jus,,, hella wants these cases solved. he doesnt work hard. he doesnt know what paperwork is. but he can,,, jus do it.

the thing about police work tho is u cant get there on luck OR hard work alone. and u can see that, even tho jake and amy approach their job comPLETELY differently, theyre very evenly matched (the bet, anyone?) which is why it’s pretty impossible to say which one is the best detective bc theyre,,, best together (was that sappy enough)

no but here’s where it gets fun, bc u can rly imagine the places this dynamic takes them.

like jake working late on a random case bc he can’t figure out the solution and it Bothers him especially if it was something a bit more high profile with a few more stakes bc my boy cares sm

not to say amy doesn’t care but she has a p professional line like when she’s not working she can let go (unless jake is the victim which is like evERY OTHER CASE NOW dont mind me) but she can go home and not worry about it theyll get him tomorrow its fine cases like these dont solve themselves overnight anyway they still have time

but then u can imagine jake getting so stressed over not knowing the answer to like,, idk say a home robbery and he let the little girl use his computer for a sec to play games something that gets a little personal yknow (also jake has such a weak spot for children dont get me started on this) and he can’t!! stop!! worrying!!

and amy, gods blessing to this earth, goes over the case with him at home bc she knows he’ll lose sleep over this and she offers angles that lil jakey never could think of bc he’s just so weirdly invested and she just keeps talking bc theyve gotten to the point where they know how they each function they know how to help each other out and eventually something she says will match up with something he was thinking except, like, from another angle and it!! MAKES SENSE!!!! and jake GETS it and tada!! all solved!! except jake, sweet child, wants to go to the precinct Immediately to solve it and amy has to be like babe its 11pm it can wait lets go to sleep

and just etc etc etc etc

of course it works the other way around as well. bc amy can bury herself in her work and forget to breathe sometimes. bc she needs to get thru all her paperwork and ALSO jakes to spellcheck it meanwhile going thru all the open cases and dealing with the weird shit that comes in and also sometimes (always) its hard to focus with jake just across from her so she kicks herself a little on particular days she just Cant and jake!!! knows he’ll talk about her cases with her just casually (she talks out loud when she’s solving cases its Cute) and oc his perspective is hilarious so he’ll come up with the most ridiculous scenarios and it just,,, calms her down,,, gets her to think outside the box a little

(oc sometimes he doesn’t catch it until she’s in a full blown panic attack and that’s a whole different thing it requires less talk about cases and more kisses)

anyway that’s all i love my dumb children and how much they love and support each other thanks for coming to my ted talk bye

  • like he’d lean in all close, voice low and teasingly raspy as he smirked at you - ‘oh yeah? you want me to teach you how to kiss? how to touch someone? how to make ‘em feel real good?
  • and god he’d drag out that initial conversation for so long because he legit gets off on seeing you all flustered like yeah billy, stop being so blunt about it!!! and stop making me say it, it’s embarrassing!!! ⁄(⁄ ⁄⋋⁄_⁄⋌⁄ ⁄)⁄
  • (but spoiler alert, he knows it’s embarrassing - that’s why he’s doing it)

✨  asjhdksdjhfksj but then after that initial high he’s like hmm wait hold on, you want to date my best friend, but not me? u dont??? want me??? :\

  • e-boy.exe has stopped working *shocked pikachu meme*
  • he’d be so pissy jealous - 110% ; like what, is he not good enough for you? tf does stu have that he doesnt????
  • but of course he’s not gonna admit any of this to you - because that would involve a level of emotional vulnerability and maturity his greasy ass does NOT possess
  • (he does however get extra pissy with stu, though safsdfksjds and stu who has no idea what’s going on is like hey bro u good? like u seem angrier than normal??? lol??? )
  • no instead his plan is simple; he will just have to be so good a teacher (ie. give you so much pleasure) that you’d obviously end up falling for him and his charm and his hella magic fingers - this plan is full proof no he will not take criticisms at this time thank u

~ O N  ye  O T H E R  H A N D ~ ?

  • like, imagine the look of absolute sad shock (that he would totally try to play off) like oh? haha, u like billy? yeah, guess i shouldnt be surprised, most people do, huh? amiright? haha lol :”)
  • you: stu are you ok-? // stu: IM FINE WHY DO U ASK FORGET ABOUT IT LEMME TEACH YOU HOW TO MAKE OUT NOW
  • i mean i imagine stu as a pretty easy going dude, but at some point the feeling of inferiority’s gotta hit and even he’s gonna be like Wow i let billy do/get everything and i can’t even have this one thing? wack :\
  • (or like, alternatively, stu not having a crush on you/not realizing his feelings for you YET and agreeing to help you out becuz sounds horny and fun!!! but then over the course of your ‘lessons’ he develops feelings for you and oh nO-)

and definitely NOT to try and paint stu as less of an ass than billy - becuz they are Both garbage men - but i think stu is significantly more likely to accept that you’re only using him and his dicc as a learning tool

  • i mean dont get me wrong, stu would also love to try and woo you over, over the course of your lessons together, but compared to billy i think he’d be more likely to accept that billy’s gonna get the babe
  • and therefore, he’s just gonna be VERY GREEDY with your time together - like call him tutor of the year because he will be at ur call day and night, he’ll insist on putting in extra hours to make sure your lessons are sticking
  • because he wants to enjoy whatever time you guys have left together before you run into billy’s arms and away from his :”)

  • so i mean like, imagine pissed off!billy realizing that there’s no way you’re getting over your crush on stu - which is not fine, he can work with that - and he invites stu over to hang out, only to out your crush on him, tell stu what you and billy have been getting up to, and more importantly demanding stu get on board with sharing you, because billy isn’t giving you up
  • or imagine stu accidentally admitting Feelings™ for you in the heat of the moment tutoring; and you get all flustered and confused because you like billy, but man spending all this time with stu does have you feeling some sort of way, doesn’t it? and oh, stu is giving you such sad, needy, desperate puppy eyes… and oh? who’s that walking into the bedroom? billy? stu invited you here? stu told you everything and you two have come to an agreement? what sort of agreement? oh, you want to show me-?

OR ALTERNATIVELY

  • billy and stu are seeing each other, but it’s on the down low (partly cuz it’s the 90s, partly because they gotta keep dating other future victims to gain intel + keep up appearances)
  • and you, not knowing they’re already taken, go up to one of them, asking for help seducing the other
  • and boi if it were anyone else trying to make a move on their man, you’d be gutted and hanging from a tree
  • but lucky you, the boys have had their eye on you already!!! and this is the perfect way to get you involved with them >:3c
  • of course they could just come clean to you - explain they’re together and would be willing to open their relationship up for a third - but they are Bastard™ and instead play along with your idea
  • until one night, billy or stu corrects you on your technique, assuring you that this is what the other likes - and you jokingly ask how they know so much about the other’s preferences
  • and then the other one walks in - as planned - and oop! ur shocked!! and embarrassed!!! only getting more embarrassed as they explain their relationship to you - were they just stringing you along? playing a sick joke?
  • but those thoughts are quickly snuffed when they both loom over you - stating you’ll need to learn how to please both of them - not just one - which means double the lessons are clearly in order

anonymous asked:

(part 1) ur gonna roast me for this but im legit curious why mafia AUs are so bad? im asking in a non confrontational way, i get it romanticizing mafia is wrong, but i also believe that 1)most mafia AUs are a really toned down type of mafia;2)they do make for some interesting kinds of dynamics with fanart and with fics; 3)in a fic specifically u can create your own world and call something mafia and still make it so they don't kill innocent people but only idk members of other gangs or sth

(part 2) plus theyre a way to put ur charas in a completely diff context and see what theyll do. i mean i dont believe that writing ships in a certain context (like mafia) equals romanticizing that context. mafia AUs arent even my fav things to read (in fact i almost never do), im sure many ppl romanticize it and i obvs dont agree with that but im just trying to udnerstand bc i believe fandoms are a way to explore things that we normally wouldnt.

I’m not gonna roast you don’t worry xD okay wait let me check if I replied to this already if yes I’m gonna c/p because it’s half past midnight otherwise I’ll just go at it again wait *checks tags* fff obviously I don’t have a general post but anyway pls read this after you’ve done with my post and then this which is also choke-full of links. plus for a (not nice) laugh: here. AH WAIT I FOUND THE POST.

okay, so, let’s have it out of the way: I have nothing against mob aus or crime aus. I have a problem against calling them mafia AUs because in the US mafia = organized crime at large, in Italy mafia = ACTUAL EXISTING ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE ACTIVELY HARMFUL. now that I introduced the topic I’ll c/p you the reply I gave to another anon who while discussing the issue pointed out that most writers don’t even know Italian mafia is a thing, which is pretty much on the same discourse so…

*The thing is - in the US it might not be enough of a deal anymore and I honestly do get why people make the mafia = regular mobsters, since the mafia was the first foreign organized crime being exported to the US via italian immigrants (sorry if this sounds horrible in English but I just woke up and I still didn’t have coffee) so I understand that mafia became the umbrella term.But the thing is that - as you said, these people don’t even know that there’s a mafia in Italy anymore or where the word comes from.

 I’m going to link to italiansreclaimingitaly’s tag about the mafia and its perception outside Italy because they posted about this extensively and it’s an excellent resource, but meanwhile I’m gonna do a very short bullet point list and about the topic:

  • Mafia might not be a big deal in the US, but it still is here. We have the beauty of four different mafias (Cosa Nostra - the Sicilian one, camorra which is the one in Campania but has tendrils spread everywhere, the ‘ndrangheta which is in Calabria and the Sacra Corona Unita in Puglia) which are all active [especially camorra and 'ndrangheta] and whose actions have direct impact (negative) on our economy and on our society. Actually mafias are one of the main reasons we’re currently economically fucked up, and if I start talking about how mafia culture keeps some areas literally backwards I could talk about it for three months.
  • There are still people who are killed for standing up against them. These days the most prominent personality is Roberto Saviano who is a writer who dared to put together a book documenting minutely the way camorra works and he’s been living under protection for years by this point. Like, they want him dead because he wrote a book. And I’m sorta sure that he was talking about leaving Italy and going to the US after years of sticking with it here because he can’t take it anymore but I don’t know if it was a taken decision or if it’s still debating it.
  • It wasn’t even thirty years ago that we had the stragi di mafia - in english it’d be something like the mafia slaughters, basically around the beginning of the nineties there were a number of bombs planted by the mafia targeting people who were trying to oppose it including judges Falcone and Borsellino, actually the anniversary of Falcone’s death is like… tomorrow. And they’ve killed people for way longer than that. Here is a list of only Cosa Nostra victims including the ones from the eighties/nineties. And people are still dying because of it. The slaughters I’m referring to are just the ones in the nineties which are enough of a number.
  • They also perpetuate a culture where if you testify against your mafia-employed relatives you’ll be shunned forever. There are women who testified against their families and couldn’t see their children anymore never mind that they weren’t automatically considered a relative anymore the moment they sided against the mafia. Some people have committed suicide after becoming witnesses also because our police force/justice system can be terribly non-supportive in this kind of situation so they got left on their own. Never mind that back in the day - it was the beginning of the nineties? - I recall at least a particular story of - I think, correct me if I remember wrong but I can’t remember the names for the life of me - where this guy testified against the local mafia when he either used to work for them or was forced to pay them the pizzo and in retaliation his six-year old (or five? Anyway he had a son younger than ten for sure) got kidnapped, killed and thrown into acid to dispose of the body. That happened in what, 1993? 1994? It’s pretty much yesterday. And now the camorra is doing the same - there’s a list here of camorra victims among which accidental passerbys that got killed because they were in the way which I can tell just by glancing is not complete. And I’m not even going into the 'ndrangheta. That is to say, here mafia still kills people and cripples our country.

Now, I get that it’s a word, but the point was: let’s say that instead of the Italians the Japanese came to the US first and the umbrella word for organized crime was yakuza rather than mafia and let’s say yakuza was still what it was originally in Japan while in the US it stopped being a big deal and people write yakuza!AU instead of mafia AU. Let’s say someone Japanese gets angry at that and goes like 'listen the yakuza is a real deal it does this this this and that and it’s a plague in our country so can you please at least look it up before writing your fanfic’, which is what had happened way back then when this whole mafia and fanfic thing blew up. A bunch of people told us to get over it because it’s just a word and if it’s a problem in Italy it’s not in the US so why should they care? Now, if we had been Japanese (or Chinese or Russian or Mexican) would they have said the same thing? Considering the general tumblr attitude I’m pretty sure they would have received either an apology or 'this is an important deal let’s keep that in mind’ with signal boost reblogs and stuff. 

It’s the fact that we should get over people not knowing that it’s still a real problem for us and that they can’t take five seconds to google it that is the problem imo. Especially when instead of mafia au you can just say mobsters au or tag it as organized crime and everyone is a lot happier, mostly because as the tag above explains romanticising the mafia is a good thing for them because it means they can act outside Italy with less stigma because everyone thinks that the mafia is dead or not relevant anymore, if I’m explaining myself. (And it’s active outside Italy - like, there was a mafia kill in Germany in 2007 where six people died (sorry the link is in Italian but there isn’t an English wiki page, if you look the city up you’ll find something probably) and it was because of the 'ndrangheta.

I’d really like to not get worked over it because it meant it was a thing of the past y'know, but the problem is that it isn’t and I’d rather spread some awareness in hope some of these writers look it up (because it’s a good thing that people know what mafia is since as stated they have tendrils everywhere - if you read Saviano’s book the entire first chapter is about how camorra regularly deals with Chinese import/export in Italy for one) than shrug and figure that since they’ll think everything is good for fanfic then it’s not even worth my time.*

Now, ^^^ that was the c/p-ed reply that should answer most of your doubts. What I didn’t address was:

im sure many ppl romanticize it and i obvs dont agree with that but im just trying to udnerstand bc i believe fandoms are a way to explore things that we normally wouldnt.

aaaand as we say here in Italy, this is where the donkey falls (sorry we have weird sayings), because in theory there’s nothing wrong with that… except that in 99% of the mafia aus I’ve seen around the thing is that they’re supposed to be cute.

like, I see a lot of shit with TINY MAFIA BOSS STEVE ROGERS with RUSSIAN ENFORCER BUCKY (????? bucky isn’t even russian???) and the yoi thing I saw before had the japanese character being the leader of a russian mafia gang which is… like… guys it doesn’t happen it really doesn’t, and a lot of them re-use wrongly terminology taken from the godfather without context or knowing what the hell it means, and it’s always from the criminals’ pov and they’re somehow seen as criminals doing justice where the police can’t (???) and like… no. mafia bosses/enforcers/employees are bad people period, and at least here if you try to leave or repent they kill your family in retribution. like, not even ten years ago there’s been a woman who used to belong to a mafia family (or one colluded with the mafia) who testified and her entire town/family shunned her and she couldn’t take it anymore and… killed herself drinking acid if I don’t recall wrong. it’s not even special cases. this shit is not funny, it’s not cute, it’s not adorable and it’s not good fodder for your imagine your otp scenario (srsly I saw one like.. let me find it,

image

LIKE. just look at this shit. in a regular context, the enforcer goes to the show owner to force them to pay a monthly sum to their boss lest they destroy their shop and their lives and their family’s life never mind that mafia culture is deeply homophobic so the mafia enforcer flirting with the shopkeeper is like completely fucking out of the question. I mean, people here like to shit on the sopranos but that show was actually excellent representation of Horrid Criminals Who Were Never Supposed To Be Good People and the small arc that happened when one of tony’s friends turned out to be gay (closeted) was REALLY well done. btw, it ended that when they found out he was gay most of the crowd rejected him and thought badly of him until I think they killed him also for other reasons, but that spiraled from finding out he liked dick. and that’s american mafia that they actually based on well-done research of the culture in Italy it came from, I assure you that here it doesn’t work that differently. like. the shit above is so inaccurate and frankly offensive, it’s like… I get people romanticizing problematic stuff but the thing is that when you tell them that it’s actually offensive you get brushed off as ‘ah well you’re being too sensitive it’s just a word u__u’. now, I’m all for exploring shit we wouldn’t be into, but not like THAT, because that’s like mafia romantic comedy and that’s not how it works. now, you wanna do a fic where the mafia characters are deeply flawed and bad people and the police tries to catch them? fine, great, go ahead. you wanna do a fic where the enforcer above deals with dunno an entire life of internalized homophobia when he finds the shopkeeper attractive and feels conflicted over having to con money out of him and doing horrible shit for a living and maybe understanding that crime isn’t worth it and then he actually collaborates with the police and gets shit from about everyone he knows and loves for that? okay, awesome, go ahead. nothing bad in that.

but the shit above is not exploring things we wouldn’t/writing darkfic, it’s THINKING THAT A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION WHICH IS STILL A THING IN OUR PART OF THE WORLD IS CUTE AND ADORABLE. and that only plays in their favor because it takes the bad aura out of the word and we really should not let that happen. like. that is what is bad about mafia aus and mafia discourse, that people don’t realize the mafia is alive and well and thriving and not a thing that doesn’t exist or a generic word for organized crime.

you wanna write the shit above? okay, CALL IT CRIME AU or mob au, not mafia au.

btw, add-on: idk if I mentioned it in the above post or not, but in case I didn’t, I said that people would balk at the idea of a mexican cartel au. sadly since then I’ve found out a fandom where not only there is one but it’s also extra cutesy and people apparently love it and it has a bunch of kudos/comments and idek I’m not even touching that with a ten foot pole but like… I’ve avoided it and everything that author wrote because to me it’s just… nope. like, nope. if you do mafia aus don’t make them fucking cute. (also: in the same fandom I had to mute a v. famous fanartist whose art I actually liked but did cutesy mafia aus and.. like… haahahhaahahahahaha nah sorry. can’t go there. nope.)

really glad my mom beat cancer not only because yay my mom is alive but mainly because i cannot begin to convey how fucking blasé i was about it literally the entire time. like the whole year she went through chemo i was getting mad at people prepping for her death which was very VERY likely and just… completely tuning out any conversation that even vaguely alluded to the possibility of her not making it.

and then she did make it.

and i was just even MORE pissed at all the people who were crying and thanking god and so so elated because in my 17 year old brain it was like. yeah. duh. she was always gonna make it. obviously. whats your problem why didnt you believe in my mom you dumbass idiot bitch fuck you get out of my house. i was angry at my aunt for years for the crime of… being sad that her baby sister was dying in front of her.

and it only hit me years fucking later that she really could have fucking died and i would have been acting completely unconcerned the entire time. how hard would that have fucked me up. how absolutely destroyed would i have been if i was wrong. how i definitely would have lashed out at the people who were aware she was going to die and i probably would have blamed them all for making everything so negative and making her give up.

i probably would have died, i dunno.

it actually gave me kind of a complex about being right all the time. if i hadnt been right then she would have died. but i was right. so i had to be right about everything. if i could be wrong about some dumb shit in a petty argument, then i could have been wrong about my mom, and she’d be dead. and i couldn’t accept that. so i couldn’t accept being wrong about ANYTHING. because i couldn’t confront that fact.

i’m afraid to get older because so does she.

one day i’ll be wrong.

This is my goodbye.

The world was spinning, people were screaming, your body was aching, thats all that you felt. Pain.

Your life was ending, you felt it slipping away, felt your lips getting dry and losing its color, your fingers still, and nails turning purple. This was it.

This was your fate. Closing your eyes you thought of every memory you treasured. Your team, your pet fish that was gonna be all alone after you pass. Tears you felt tears running down your cheeks. Cause worse of all. You’d never get to see bucky.. never got to say.. i love you..

James Buchanan Barnes.

The broken man.

The man who was silent with everybody when he first joined the team.

The man who decided you were the one he was gonna open up to.

The man you love.

And also the man you’ll never have.

You were scared, scared of rejection, scared that you weren’t good enough.

Because you were much more broken than he was. You knew that. Everyone knew that.

But somehow he thought otherwise.

He always told you, you were much more than perfect, that what matters is you’re a different person now.

Every word he said mattered, but you wish he said more than that. You wish he’d say i love you.

But who the fuck in their right mind would do that?

Definitely not Bucky.

The ground was suddenly shaking.. it felt soft?

You suddenly see Bucky, he was looking down at you.

“Hey doll” he smiled.

You felt his cold finger tips wiping away your tears. “Buck i- i have to tell you something before i- before i go” you sobbed.

“Since we are parting ways, perhaps forever, I feel I must discharge something from my heart that I have felt for a very long time,”-  

You took a deep breath. Fuck it. You’re dying anyway.

“I- I love you james and i- i have for a long time now, you- you dont have to say it back it- its okay.. i i just really needed to get it out of my chest because i do.. i do love you.” You started crying again, you probably look so stupid right now. But Bucky had this sparkle in his eyes that makes you realize he thinks otherwise.

He chuckled. “I love you too doll, That’s why you have to close your eyes and get some rest so we can talk about this once you’re sober.” He reached for your cheek again.

You were sobbing, you were confused, sober? Wth you’re fucking dying. If you close your eyes the next thing you’ll see is Big G saying you got the wrong address.

“Wha- what do you mean buck- and i WAIT you love me back? But im dying. Tell me you hate me pls. I cant die knowing you loved me back and i never did something about it.” You sob-rambled.

He threw his head back laughing loudly. This made you even more confused.

“Shh shhh close your eyes, I’ll be here when you wake up, i assure you it wont be Big G mmkay?” He smiled, softly stroking your hair.

Fuck.. you said that out loud. Dumb dying fuck.

You suddenly started feeling your eyes get heavy. You started crying again. “Bucky~” sobbing.

“Hey hey its okay dont fight it” Smiling, he reached for your hand. “I love you”

Darkness.



*Tony and Bruce outside the medical wing watching everything that just happened*

“Wow Tony how strong was that drug.” Bruce asked with a shocked look on his face.

“What? I hear the ‘blame’ on your voice, it wasn’t the drug, Y/n is just plain dramatic.” He argued back. “I’ve never seen anyone with a fever whose more dramatic than her, god did you hear how she said those things? She even got the tears falling down her face. The Oscars are shaking.” He rolled his eyes. Bruce just laughed softly. “I didn’t know she was like this when she gets sick.”

The door suddenly opened revealing Bucky Barnes with a big smile on his face.

“You seem happy Barnes ~” Tony teased.

“Well yeah i am, who would’ve thought a fever would be the one that would bring us together.” He replied smiling with a shake of his head.

“Welp shows over bye bye im busy, keep her on that bed. And friday make sure to record everything so i can tease her once she’s healed, Thank you.” Slapping both men on their shoulders he took his leave.

After a few minutes of just watching your sleeping form from the window Bruce finally decided to take his leave aswell. Leaving a smiling Bucky, and a 4 minute video on his phone that he will treasure forever.

Fin.

Cut the check! Oh hey~ angst? Yeah i lied.

Hope you enjoyed reading!

On Jashi

Samurai Jack has suffered a lack of waifus and women in general, so Ashi being a mainstay I think is a good thing. 

The episodes we have so far admittedly do not make good shipping canon, but it does provide a foundation. Even if their relationship does not go romantic, theres still the bases of a friendship, or even a master/student type of relationship because Jack is so much more skilled then she is. 

I personally do ship Jashi, but I can see why others would not, or would even DISLIKE the ship, as Ashi, well, shes kind of a little shit and she has traits that I think would turn people away. 

But then theres the idiots who HATE it and start discourse over it. 

Incest

For some reason people insist this ship is incestial because of a headcanon that Jack is actually the father of the daughters of Aku, 

To these people I ask “Are you retarded?” Theres NO evidence that Jack is the father to Ashi or any of her sisters, its just fan theory and not even a particularly good one at that. 

Pedophilia 

Another one ive heard. You know, im not even sure people know what Pedophila is, because they clearly have no fucking idea. 

Ashi is quite clearly an adult as we saw her grow up from a child. Id say shes in her twenties, shes more then old enough. 

And Jack is Ageless, sure hes around 75 years old, but he still has the body he had when he was in HIS twenties. And even if he wasnt, so what?

Shipping an 80 year old man and a twenty something woman, might be weird, but its NOT pedophilia and its STILL A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO CONSENTING ADULTS. 

Holy shit. 

Now these arent the only two reasons why I think people dont like the ship. I think they dislike it because it interferes with their own ships. 

Remember earlier I said that Samurai Jack suffered a lack of waifus and women in general? Well what happens in fandoms when you suffer a deficit in one gender? You get a bunch of gay ships! (Well you get a bunch of gay ships regardless if the genders are equal or not) So Jashi kills these ships. 

Jack x Johnny Bravo. 

During Cartoon Networks hayday, where Jack originally aired, they had these bumpers that played between shows where it showed the characters of cartoon network all living together in the same universe. One such bumper showed Jack and Johnny Bravo in a laundromat doing their laundry. They have an awkward conversation when Jack’s gi is accidently dyed pink because Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls left her gown in the washer. No one thought anything of this bumper at the time, but of course years later when Fandoms and Shipping became a Thing, people thought the conversation between Johnny and Jack was loaded with sexual tension or some shit. 

Its stupid, its non canon and Jack and Johnny have only ever showed interest in women, so……

Jack x Aku 

Yep, people actually ship this. Ok, when Aku turns himself into a girl and messes with Jack, its kind of funny (He does it once in the show as Ikra, and he does it again later on in one of the comics) But its clearly not meant to be taken seriously. But people took it seriously. Its clearly supposed to be the “Enemies to Lovers” trope, but the things Aku has done is wayyyy beyond forgiveness or redemption. Jack hates him and wants to kill him and Aku does the same to Jack. 

Jack x The Scotsman

*Shudders* I honestly cant tell if this is a serious ship or not, but I have seen mentions of it. No, just no. The Scotsman loves his wife. Thats….all there is to say on the matter. 


Now if you ship any of those ships above, you are certainly welcome to continue to ship them. I dont mean to bash on them and you are free to ship what you want. But I dont have to like it and I gave my reasons why I didnt like them. 

Anyway thats my very long post on the matter
