i grew up with these

So before I made that digitally colored version of this picture, I wanted to color it traditionally with copics, but about halfway through I grew frustrated with it and gave up, coloring it digitally instead. On the next day however I came back to this and thought it was worth finishing after all (:

one of the perks of bonding with the lions is the gift of universal language- not so much that the paladin suddenly knows every language in the universe, but more like a translator, where it has the paladin here what’s being said in their preferred language, and then when they speak back, translates so the other lifeform would hear the answer back in their language

because there’s no way coran and allura would know english, or any earth language for the matter, so the lions have been translating for their paladins for the start, with blue covering everyone for the very begining. over time, the paladins slip back into constantly using their preferred language without even realizing, because everyone can still understand them

until one day the lions, for some reason or another, have to stop translating

Blog - 2/20/2017: Home 

I grew up in rural Oregon, in a town of under 5,000. My graduating class in high school was around 125 students, most of whom I had known since kindergarten. I never was really inspired by the immediate area around where I spent my childhood, and I didn’t start to pursue photography until after I had moved away for college - meaning that while I’ve explored this town and the mountains surrounding it from top to bottom during my time growing up here, I’ve never done it with a camera in hand. I never felt the need to document this place, because I didn’t find it beautiful - I’d always wished we grew up somewhere warmer, preferably on the beach - something I grew out of with time.

Cliffs Edge ch9

thanks to @luckiedee​, I finally did the thing.


Prior to their departure from the hotel, Kent’s first act of business is to Google something on his phone. He won’t let Alexei see what it is.

“Fuck yes!” Kent exclaims. When he looks up from the screen, he’s grinning. “Okay, we’ve got some hours to kill. Will you be warm enough walking around outside in just a shirt and jacket? Even at night? It gets cold up here.”

Alexei looks down at himself. “I’m Russian.”

“Yeah, and I play ice hockey and grew up in New York, and I can’t fucking stand the cold. That’s why I’ve got three layers on and I’m grabbing a jacket before we go.” Kent gets up from his chair. “So?”

Alexei gets up, too. “I’m okay. It’s warm jacket. Where we go at night?”

“That’s for me to know and you to find out.” Kent goes to his closet to fish out the aforementioned jacket, which he ties around his waist like it’s 1995. Alexei would chirp him but it’s too fucking cute.

Kent heads for the door but Alexei hangs back, looking around the room. It was mildly messy when they came in but now it’s kind of disastrous, with the beds further rumpled from people sitting on their edges and all the available trashcans filled up with leavings. The delivery bags have been rolled up and stuffed inside each other, along with the discarded pie and quiche tins.

“Housekeeping will get it,” Kent says.

Alexei still cringes at the mess, but he goes with Kent, who checks for his keycard before closing the door behind them.

Outside the hotel, all is quiet. Alexei doesn’t see anyone with cameras hanging out in wait.

“Probably stalking the Falconers,” Kent says, and hails a taxi.

it’s weird when exclusionists say “you’re lgbt because of your transness and bisexuality, not because of your asexuality,” like being ace is something that can be removed from the rest of my identity. i’m demisexual, which has had deep and lasting effects on my relationships. it’s intertwined with my being trans – for a long time i was afraid i’d never find romantic love because of (a) the shitty way cis gay men treat trans mlm, and (b) the fact that attraction is so unreliable and strenuous for me to even develop, takes so much time and energy just to happen. 

for me being ace AND trans means i grew up thinking “no one will love me because my body is undesirable, and my sexuality is undesirable too.” i can’t separate that from the rest of me. i just can’t. 

and then when i mention stuff like this to those in the Discourse, i get called a “cishet” like … good job! you just called a real live queer trans man a cishet! and it’s usually cis people calling me a “cishet ace” which just … what the fuck? 


[SFM] New Friends

RWBY Volume 4. I tear up a little when I see the girls all separate on their own journeys. I also tear up to see how much they grew. I’ve been following them since Day 1 Rooster Teeth announced RWBY. I felt like I grew up alongside them. But anyway yeah here is team RWBY!


anonymous asked:

I have a lot of feelings because honestly Namjoon works so hard to learn about society and it's issues and it's so nice to see. Like him mentioning how all the members read books and essays and get together to discuss them makes me so soft 😭 and when I think about how these sensitive boys all grew up together like??? No wonder they're all so genuine and well mannered. Jungkook, an actual baby, was raised by such a perfect system like I love OT7 family I have such feelings 😭😭

Dude yes. I have such admiration for Namjoon’s leadership style and for the way he’s growing up in general. Like, I know he’s far from perfect but I do think he’s really trying to educate himself and be a good human. There’s a lot of mental and emotional growth that happens during that age, and so I’m just…. I’m so pleased to see him progressing the way he is.

I also feel like he’s such a soft leader, that he rarely pulls that leader card, that the knows what each of the members needs and that he tailors his leadership style to best support them. Quietly in the background. Educating his boys and helping them to grow as humans. And I really do feel like he’s kind of a father figure to them, since they’ve essentially raised each other, and that’s gotta be some intense responsibility on his very fucking young shoulders.  I feel like he’s such a kind and gentle boy and he’s only going to get better as he continues to learn. And something tells me he’ll never stop learning. That’s who he is, and I’m so proud of him.

anonymous asked:

Nicole, how did you know you were Lesbian?

I’ve been gay all my life honestly. I always crushed on girls. I thought they were so soft and they smell so good. I used to drool over Britney Spears, seriously drooled. But I grew up in a very religious community so I didn’t see it. I thought everyone felt this way, I truly believed it was common knowledge that girls are just sexier than boys and boys are lucky they get to sleep with them. Women just lucked out. I never crushed on guys, never had a boy crazy stage like all my friends. It used to make me feel so lonely and weird because I didn’t get it. Even when I got older, I couldn’t feel any attraction to men so I finally assumed I’m just not a romantic or sexual person. I wasn’t comfortable talking to my friends about sex. I remember one of my friends telling me once that she’s so horny for her boyfriend and I was completely shocked, I didn’t think any girls wanted sex with boys, I thought we just had to. Then about a year ago, Lexa from the show The 100 died and I couldn’t understand why it pushed me into a deep depression. A few weeks later, all these memories I’ve been repressing came rushing back. It was like there has been a puzzle I’ve been working on all my life that I couldn’t ever complete. I finally found the huge missing piece. I accepted that I’ve always been a lesbian. I’ve always wanted women.

Why is it I love Moonlight so much? It’s probably because it resonates with me on a few levels. I grew up with a parent who struggled with substance abuse. I grew up with a parent who saw the real me when I was young and instead of nurturing me as person decided to try and repress/ignore/destroy that part of me. I met a boy in my early teens who I ‘fell for’. I’ve travelled hundreds of miles to see someone.


Ichigo & Rukia - Bleach

I grew up reading Bleach but got lost after the Aizen arc….but when I saw the first three seasons were on Netflix I had to (re)watch the anime :’) brings back a lot of fun memories with these two. It’s weird to think I’m older than Ichigo now too :’0

Might draw the rest of the gang later but just wanted to get these done first! Hope you like!

anonymous asked:

Part(1)I'm not trying to put down ayato (not at all!), but did people really forget the flashback where he kicked hinami(and that was in his best moments, cause he was trying to protect her)? Cause god only knows what happened between them before ayato changed(cause I'm pretty sure ayato wasn't the type to shy away from these things *cough*kaneki*cough*his sister*cough*). It's not the first time ayato casually beat people up. but eventually, and gladly, he learned his lesson and grew up.

Part(2) in my opinion, I think ayahina is supposed to be the early, much more functioning version of touken. It’s supposed to be the kiddy pure pic(but gender swapped), cause they can deal better with their problems despite their own share of flaws.

I get what you mean, but I think there are many things the fandom needs to understand first. Ghouls aren’t human. They have human feelings, human body, but they’re not humans. They’re ghouls. Not every ghoul has the chance to grow up in a human environment like Hinami did, being able to do more human stuff, like reading (many ghouls don’t know how to read, Banjou was one of them), and have a loving family and not having to kill people in order to eat. Many ghouls did have that at first (Touka and Ayato) but it was taken away from them, forcing them to live on the streets, running away from the CCG (and ghouls too), killing others in order to survive, being a ghoul isn’t easy.

Violence is something very present in a ghoul’s lifestyle, some of them will just kick your ass like Ayato and others will torture you until you become mad, something Eto would do quite often. Is that okay? Is that morally correct? Maybe it’s not, but it’s the only way they can survive. The powerful you are, the more respected you will become among ghouls, you will have certain privileges like running a ward or having other ghouls working with/for you, and that can grant you the possibility to exist a while longer. It’s when ghouls have the chance to experience the human life that they change this violent vision they have of how society/the world works, because for the first time they’re having a different perspective, that you can fix things without being violent. All of the members of Anteiku were violent ghouls until Yoshimura rescued them and taught them a different way to deal with life. But the thing is, sometimes it doesn’t work for ghouls. Sometimes it’s a matter of nature. Aogiri was an extremely dangerous place, like a battlefield. You can’t be a softie in war, you can’t just receive a hug from your superior saying that everything is going to be okay if you don’t want to kill someone by an order.

Hinami had to kill someone and she wasn’t feeling ready for that, Tatara was probably going to punish her for disobeying and it wasn’t going to be a nice punishment. Ayato kicking Hinami wasn’t just a way to punish her himself in a soft way so that Tatara wouldn’t have to interfere in the worst way, but it was also trying to make her stronger. You can’t be like Hinami in the ghoul world and expect to survive. You have to go through a lot of shit to become stronger and be able to handle bad situations, sadly, you have to be a tough one. You have to adapt to the circumstances (good or not) in order to survive, especially in war (Aogiri, CCG, it’s all a war). Now, when you are Touka and you’re not fighting for your life while arguing with Kaneki and you smack him just because you’re angry… that’s different, because you can choose to talk instead of using your violence. Ayato didn’t have a choice, sometimes you just don’t have a choice as a ghoul and violence is the only way out. I don’t want to compare ghouls with animals but a ghoul’s lifestyle is basically very similar to how animals have to fight for food, for territory, for their own survival, they don’t talk, if you are getting in my way I’m going to bite you and that’s not my problem. 

Leons sometimes fight with the cubs in a very aggressive way to help them become stronger, so when they grow up they know how to defend themselves from the enemies. It’s not just about overcoming problems, it’s about the context of the scene, you’re not gonna be treated nicely in this world, Eto was a piece of shit with Hinami and at some point I think she was trying to make her stronger, if you’re going to cry for every punch or evil comment against you then you’re not going to survive in this world, especially if you are a ghoul acting like a human, like Hinami did. Like I said, it’s all about the context, and I think Ayato was doing her a huge favor, and he wasn’t kicking her for fun or because he wanted to hurt her, he went to ask her if she was okay after that, and he knew that she understood that it wasn’t intentional, she knew what he was trying to do, that’s why she said that she was weak, that she wanted to become strong… because she knew she wasn’t tough enough for all this. And what did Ayato said in response? did he said “you’re a fucking weak little girl and now I’m gonna beat the shit out of you to teach you how this works” … no, he didn’t. Even knowing Hinami wasn’t the strongest one, being aware of her insecurities… he said “you’re not weak.” Ayato was probably one of the few people inside Aogiri who treated Hinami with kindness despite his aggressive personality, and Hinami could probably still be alive thanks to him. If he interfered with Tatara to help her, I wonder how many more times he interfered to save her ass from crazy people like Eto or Noro. 

anonymous asked:

I grew up with a big family (five boys and three girls including myself) and I always wonder what it would be like for Harry if he had a family like the size of mine. How do you think he would evolve throughout all of the pregnancies, babies, school times, baby firsts, etc.? He's such a baby person I feel like he'd thrive in it, but I'd love to know your view because I love you writing.

He would definitely love it.

“Let’s have a family the size of a footie team, yeah?”

“Enough to make a footie team. We could call us the STYLES.”

I feel like he would become more and more skilled and knowledgable and more aware during each pregnancy that his missus would endure and he’d be able to prepare for what he needed to do during the three trimesters. He’d be a bit confused and scared during the first couple of pregnancies that his missus would go through because it’s the nervous aspect of messing up as a dad and not knowing what to do. But when it gets to another pregnancy, he’d feel like he was pretty ready for everything to happen and he’d be prepared for what he needed to do. And, my god, he’d get even more excited with each pregnancy and he’d be so happy every single time because he bloody loves babies and he looks like he’d be so supportive during everything that happens. 

He’d get even more excited through each of his children’s first words, first smile, first crawl, first walk, and he’d be there to bathe them for the first time and and change their nappies for the first time and he’d be there to watch his missus breastfeed them because, no matter how many times he sees it, he is still endeared and in love with the process that his missus gets to do every time their children need food.

And when it comes to them becoming older children and them growing up and being parts of different schedules like school and nursery and play dates and whatnot, I think he’d be very organised and planned out. With schedules on the fridge, an early alarm, . He’d made school lunches before and stick them in the fridge, he’d wake them all up at different times to make sure they were all ready for school and ready to go through the day, he’d let the missus relax a lot and he’d always take over the duties when she had a busy day at work or when she just needed a night to herself. xx

I love how KJ Apa, the actor of Archie is Samoan, Scottish, and English.

I’m an avid fan of Archie comics since I was seven years old. I read the comics throughout the years from different series and grew up on Archie’s weird mysteries. Even as a fan I’m open to new renditions and interpretations of the series.
For Riverdale I freaking adore the somewhat diversity they put in the show.
