alright kids listen up dailymemori is writing meta and it’s not just in the tags this time so that makes this an historic day. in case you’re wondering where this is coming from, my sister is watching the 100 for the first time, and last night she was watching 2x12 so for obvious reasons i decided to watch it with her and i had??? a lot of feelings???? i mean some of these feelings were because my sister told me she hates emori (which was like…. fight emoticon activated
(ง'̀-‘́)ง) but MORE IMPORTANTLY i just had a lot of feelings over how ride or die memori have been for each other since literally DAY ONE
oh a random slice of life from visiting my sister in Maryland. It was me, my older sister the Lt. Col. (who just moved to MD from GA), and Middle-Little sister, and we were painting Lt. Col. Sister’s middle son’s room in the new house. It had wood-panel walls and glossy black trim, it had to go before the child could really live there, he’s a seven-year-old ball of sunshine and can’t be subjected to wood paneling. So we painted it all in shades of blue and it took forgoddamnever.
At one point someone brought up the thing about the Gay Cousin– you know, how there’s always one– and how our group of cousins is so white-bread that I’m the closest thing we have. And yeah, I mean, I’m a whole person, so I count, but I’m so invisibly queer, I’ve had the same dude for 15 years now and nobody realizes.
As if to prove the point, Lt. Col. Husband was standing in the doorway with a beer, having just put the kids to bed, and said, “Wait, in what way are you the gay cousin???”
I’ve known the guy a decade. “I’m bi,” I said. “I was pretty serious with a woman before Dude. I’m clearly not super into getting around, but I’m definitely not a straight person either.”
He was like, “does that count??” and to their credit, both of my sisters were like, “yes that counts what is wrong with you”, and he sort of went off and stood in the corner with his feathers all ruffled for a moment.
Buddy, I’m the sister that likes you, don’t screw this up. And also, yet more testament to the fact that if you don’t know any gay people, it’s because you’re not paying attention.
This narrative of how you Come Out one time and then you’re Gay Forever is like, the least true thing ever to become a narrative trope…
Also he tried to argue about the upcoming cakes for gays Supreme Court case on the basis of homophobia being a 2,000-year-old religious practice and i was like are you seriously reducing all of Christianity to homophobia maybe crack a Bible sometime and read the bit where Jesus actually talked, it might open your eyes. Also if it’s cool to refuse cakes for gays, why can’t lunch counters be whites only too? I mean what kind of America are you arguing to live in, here?
I got the feeling he was doing the white dude arguing for the sake of arguing thing that’s so fucking obnoxious, but I was Not Having It so we didn’t get far into that. I told him to let me paint his child’s bedroom in peace.
Aww, I’m so glad you enjoying reading my fics! <3 I’m planning on doing Crooks and Axe for the POV this time (and I still have some others from previous chapters to do, too, eventually). Red’s reaction will definitely be explored a little later on. ;)
Also, I love that song and totally agree! I’ve got it on my playlist when I write. xDI waited for you –
And waited for you And made a mistake I can never undo And deep in my soul, I’m losing control Another new day Yet another painful toll
It was looking at him the wrong way. xP
Axe is the type to do whatever he wants. He wanted to kiss her, so he kissed her. He wanted to basically flip the others off in the process of declaring his intent, so he did just that. xP He’s not used to caring about those kinds of things–or about caring for someone else other than his brother’s wellfare.
Annnnnd, it probably won’t be the only kiss that happens without someone checking with her first, honestly. She may get some slaps in yet, who knows. Even though some of the skeles would probably be all right with her slapping them… xD
xDD I’m glad you liked that! Really, I was just like “vanilla is Red’s thing, so what insulting term would Blackberry use?” Thank you!! <3
Nice catch! Yesss. Putting the cig out on his palm wouldn’t really hurt as much since he’s a skeleton, but it would still be rather uncomfortable. Definitely a grounding technique, though.
Eventually, yes. ;) I’ve got plans for the HT!bros to meet her ex. He’s not out of the picture yet, and douches like that have a tendency for popping back up just when someone’s feeling happy.
The SF!bros will eventually find out, too. And let’s just say that whole dinner with the family thing is definitely not going to go well.
xD I’m so glad you were hype! Oh geez, what did your friend say when she found out they’re skeletons?!
@patchedways Oooo, I’m glad you found me through her amazing fanart! You’re way too sweet, ahhh! <333 This comment made me so, so happy; thank you for taking the time to leave me this kindness. x]
xDD Oh man, please tell me your parents didn’t wake up. Wouldn’t that be an awkward conversation. “What’s wrong with you?!” “This skeleton just kissed me in front of all the other skeletons that wanna get with me!” “……….” I’m so glad you liked it, though! <3
I know, right?? He was so calm at first, but then they took it a little too far. The last thing he wanted was for them to scare off the Lady! The HT!bros don’t have many friends with the others, and they’re secluded in the woods (for the most part), so they value her friendship. Especially Crooks.
How is everyone so amazing at finding perfect songs?? <3
So would you cover me, If I gotta take out any enemy, yeah, Cause it might get ugly, Planning things that you don’t wanna see
We’ll be royalty, And I’ll be the king baby, We’ll be sitting on a throne.
I've only just realised it was one of YOUR reblogs that got me into The Bright Sessions! Thank you so much it's one of my favourites
!!!!! omg that’s so exciting!!! the bright sessions is one of my favorite podcasts atm i don’t think i’ve ever fallen in love with something so quickly. I’m happy I’ve gotten other people to listen too and i’m so glad you love it too!!!
Good morning gay sex is completely healthy and natural and gay people shouldn’t have to feel dirty or ashamed for having or wanting sex. It’s healthy and natural for a girl to fantasise about having sex with another girl, or for a boy to fantasise about having sex with another boy, and they aren’t predatory for doing so ✨
